Question about Husqvarna Garden

1 Answer

The chain brake on my little 137 husqvarna saw is broken. The metal strip is snapped . Do I need to buy a complete new brake assembly or can I get only the metal strip and fit it into the perfectly good old housing . If so where might you recommend . Also , in the meantime is it dangerous to continue using the saw ?

You ask a 2 part question, I start with brake band repair/replacement.
A link to a 2004 Husqvarna 137/137E IPL (exploded parts list) follows (may not be your saw):
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/usa/2004/I04000/I0401903.pdf
See the Chain Brake illustration, item 13 for the band. Item 14 (see Bailey's description. Your local Husky dealer will save shipping fees and is likely about the same price.) is a complete clutch cover $22

    I use a Pioneer Farmsaw purchased new 1980±. It has never had a chain brake. I wear full PPE when operating this or any of my saws. Only you can determine your level of expertise and whether comfortable using a saw without a brake.

Cover won't go on.round metal strip won't fit on round spindle that turns chain.E-235.Do I need the break bar?It doesn't line up either. DB


Sounds like the chain brake was set when you took the cover off. You need to disengage the chain brake (release it) so the round spindle will fit inside. Look for the two parts (one on cover, one on saw) that match up at the base of the chain brake. You won't be able to fit the whole cover on, but if you can line up where the metal triangular gear engages the chain brake, you can give it a snap to disengage it. What I have done in the past is to line up the two parts and push down on the top of the cover where they meet so as much of the gear is in the chain brake release as possible ( I put a knee on it ) and then give a snap to release it. Be careful though, because the cover part is plastic and you don't want to strip that part of the chain brake assembly. Good luck.

Can't put the cover back on my model 240 28" chain saw. the band will no go over rhe brake


Sounds like the cover was taken off with the brake on. On some of the Huskies, the brake is engaged with a three-part metal piece that fits into a corresponding shaped part on the cover and is engaged with a firm click on or off. The piece looks a little like the old nuclear bomb shelter signs, like three pie wedges with the narrow parts meeting in the middle. Be careful not to strip the plastic part when trying to marry these two sections together or you will be buying a new cover. I lined up both parts, made sure it was in as far as possible, put a knee on it, and snapped the chain brake off. This opened the band, and it fit once again. Note: I did this correctly the second time it happened to me. The first time resulted in a brand new pretty cover for my used saw because I tried forcing it and stripped the plastic part it the metal piece fits into. Good luck.

You should not use this saw until this is sorted out, if it is a new saw take it back to where you purchased it from, if not i would suggest the band is broken, this is not a job for a novice, buy a new brake complete, or take it to the local dealer.

Hi marcus,

The bar and chain oil goes into the oil tank on the side. The oil for the engine is mixed with the gas before filling the gas tank.

Hope that helps.

How do you start a husqvarna 137 e series chain saw


Hello Sally;
A link to an OM for a Husqvarna 2005 137 (no e listed, the procedure is the same) can be found here:
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/HOUS/HOUS2005/HOUS2005_O0501001.pdf
The start procedure begins on page 9.
The part that says once it attempts to start open the choke is often overlooked and they flood.
This is the only 137 listed, normally there are many to choose from. If you need additional help Husqvarna can be contacted here:

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

How to assemble the chain brake on a Husqvarna 137 chainsaw


A link to a Husqvarna "IPL, 137/ 137 e, (revised 2008-04) 2006-12, Chain Saw" follows (may not be your saw):
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/usa/2006/I06000/I0601906.pdf
Page 1 displays the chain brake in good detail. The hand guard must be rotated aft to latch the brake band in the expanded position or it will not be possible to reinstall the cover. It requires a fair amount of force to latch and a vise (use wooden blocks on cover flats to protect the finish) or a large C-clamp to a work surface will probably be required.

How do I reinstall the chain brake on my Poulan Wild Thing??


Find your model number add a LE suffix (i.e. if 2375 make it 2375LE) the "Handle, Chassis, and Bar Assembly" shows what detail is available. If not enough detail tell Poulan! Maybe it will improve for the next guy. If not happy with Poulan answer tell Husqvarna (parent company).
An entire new clutch cover (2375LE Type 2) item 36 pn545139903 is $19.43.

Broken brake band for Husqvarna 137e


Relax its only a click away. Go to Husqvarna.com and under support in the header it will ask about manuals/breakdowns, click and type in your model number, but you need to look further because they list about 4 saws and I assume it is by type number or date of mfg. but anyway click on that and you can look at the parts explostion and I believe that you can even find a dealer or possibly buy it online. I didn't check that far. Where are you located and you can borrow my saw to help you out. Good luck and let me know if you have any trouble.
