If you have followed all of the manual's instructions, take the saw back to the dealer for warranty repair or replacement. I have a new Husky 435 that would run for several days, then refuse to even pop. The first trip to the dealer, they replaced the ignition module. Came back and ran several days more, then nothing. This time, they replaced the carburetor, and it seems to be working ok now. They may be having trouble with our ethanol adulterated fuel, but I have heard nothing conclusive about that. Good luck!

Hard starting


Starting any chain saw can be a bit finicky. How many hours has the saw done since new ruffle? Over about 10 and the saw would have run in and will need to have the fuel adjusted. What fuel to oil ratio are you running?

Just as a point, you might know this but I only pull the saw over 3-4 times with the choke in. Then try to start with it off.

What causes the Clutch drum gear that drive the chain to go bad ? my chain eats a groove all the way through it aftr about 12 hrs of cutting I have replaced it 3 times now.


The chain you should be using should be a .325 pitch and not a 3/8.

Never over tighten the chain, it will wear and stretch with time, which is why you should regularly check the chain tension. To get it right you should be able to lift 2 drive links clear of the bar. The chain will naturally wear groves into the spur sprocket, there is no conversion to a rim spricket for this model. Rim sprockets allow the chain to move along the sprocket easier and takes the wear away form the clutch drum.

Husqvarna 235e will not stay running


Take the saw back for warranty service. We have a Husky #435 that had starting problems when new last year--warranty service replaced the ignition module the first trip, then a little later, they replaced the carburetor--it has worked very well since. I suspect that Husqvarna has had problems with our ethanol blended fuels. Hope this helps!

My Husqvarna 232R brushcutter pull cord will not start


There should be several 'dogs' exposed after removing the starter assembly. These 'dogs' should rotate into the flywheel nut when the cord is pulled causing the engine to turn. Check with a Husky servicing dealer for parts. Good luck!

Describe your Husqvarna "Chain Saw -


Remove the spark plug and test for spark. If ok, try some starting fluid in the plug hole, install the plug, and try to start. If it runs a short time, it is not getting fuel. Check fuel lines including inside the tank. Clean or replace the air filter. If this saw is fairly old, the carburetor probably needs a re-kit and cleaning. Does it have good compression? Check the muffler for plugging. Make sure the fuel/oil mix is fresh. Good luck!

Husqvarna 345 chainsaw chain doesn't move freely and heats up


has the chain ever came off the saw?and i'm going to assume that it is the correct chain for the saw...reason i ask about the chain comming off the saw is that when it does the driver have a tendency to become nicked and will heat up the clutch because the saw is trying to drive the chain links through the chain slot.also you need to look at the drive sprocket to see if there is any wear on the teeth....also over tighting the chain will cause the clutch to heat up.

Husqvarna 345 power loss and vibrates


Replace the bar. Your bar has gone bad and that is why you are losing power. Bars are made by the chain saws to be completely oiled at all times. When the bar does not get oil the bar will start to warp and that is what will cause you lack of power when trying to due a top cut
