Question about Husqvarna 450 e-series 18" Chain Saw

1 Answer

I used my brand new Husqvarna chain saw for about 30 minutes then when I pinched the blade a little bit and it kicked back out at me, the chain stopped moving. I can't even turn it by hand. The engine runs but you can tell it run wide open. and the gear that runs the chain doesn't move either. Please help.

The chainbrake has actuated, you need to pull the hand gurd fully toward the rear of the machine until you hear the click of the brake unloading.

My Husqvarna 350 bogs down and is not turning the chain.


something is pinching the chain when you have the side cover on. either the bar isn't sitting flush to the saw or you don't have the chain in the sprocket correctly and that is causing it to bind

There is a number of ways to re load the brake, you can either remove the clutch and sprocket, the brake will then go back onto the saw enabling you to use the hand guard on the saw to load the brake ( to remove the clutch, there are two cut a ways in the clutch centre designed to enter a flat screw driver into, then strike with a suitable hammer to remove, it is a left hand thread ) or you can remove the hand guard from the saw and use this as a tool to re load the brake, or you can clamp the cover in a vice ( be carefull not to damage the cover ) then use a strudy pair of pliers or grips in the three legged loading mechanism and turn it to load the brake.

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!

Always have to stop to tighten chain


If the cahin is new, then it will stretch for a while. Make sure you have enough oil going onto the chain when cutting, and not to much pressureon the blade when cutting, let the saw do the work. Also, if your chain is dull or blunt, it will get very hot and need frequent adjusting.
Hope this helps you out a bit.

Engine starts blade won't spin


The large black plastic bar sticking up is a kick back safety device. Pull it back toward the handle to make sure it has not been engaged. If it is engaged the chain will not move. If that is not the problem then the chain clutch is defective. I am assuming the chain is not too tight.

We used our Husqvarna for about 20 minutes when it stopped rotating. Turned it off and was idle absolutely fine but the chain still won't turn. Sorry, don't know the model, but it's brand new....??


on some of the new chain saws there is a safety switch on the guard in front of the handle, it goes forward to lock the chain and pull it back to unlock the chain sometime make sure it is in the it is pulled back and check to see if it is still hook up to the switch.

Is it your chain saw Husqvarna 40?

Try carb adjustments H-3/4 turn ,L-2 turns and T a little higher
I presume that compression and ignition sistem is adequate for the engine to run.Good luck

Husqvarna 40 chain saw


This happens for two reasons. First of all, take off the chain and the bar and clean it all up as saw dust may be the culprit. The other reason is that some chain oils are too thick. you can thin it down a little bit by adding a little kerosene or gasoline.
