Husqvarna 235e 16inch bar. Will not stay running. It takes quite a few pulls to get it started, and than will not stay running very long. from 5 seconds to maybe 2 min, I made sure the choke was in. just fuled it. Saw is brand new first time using it. not first time using chainsaw. I have a Husqvarna weed eater. It runs fine.

Re: 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!

Sounds typically like a fueling problem 'starvation' check the fuel system from the fuel filter, fuel lines, and carb. could possibly need carb cleaning and gaskets replacing or could be a plugged fuel filter or split in a fuel line. I've attached the breakdown manual for you. http://www.mediafire.com/view/7jkzri5m6fyk4fi
Does the brake seem to 'snap-over' like it should? Pull it back to release position, and remove the drive cover. Check the entire brake for debris accumulation or bent/damaged brake band. Check the chain to see if it is being oiled. Remove the bar/chain and clean the entire assembly, particularly the small oil passages in the drive end of the bar. Start the engine and watch for oil oozing out of the small side port where the bar fits. If ok, reassemble the bar/chain. If no oil comes out, investigate the oil pump, lines, and filter/valve in the oil tank. Mount the side cover, but leave the fasteners finger tight. (The chain teeth cut toward you on the bottom run) Tighten the chain until the lower run comes up to the bar, but can still be turned by hand. Tighten the fasteners and recheck the tension. Trip the chain brake and make sure it locks the chain, then release it and make sure it turns freely. Check the chain oiling by running the bar tip at speed near some cardboard--it should leave a thin line of oil on the board. Hope this helps!
