Question about Husqvarna Garden

1 Answer

My chain ,after being cleaned and adjusted will fill between the bar and chain. i believe the atomatic oiler is working fine. The sawdust makes the chain tighter and tighter until it wont spin around the bar again. I take it apart clean everything and it works fine for five minutes before the chain is again too tight.

    well im no fool... i have cleaned the groove in the bar,know about filing the bar and never adjust the chain too tight. Prob is its like the chain gets tighter and tighter until its so tight that it stalls out the saw.

Are you getting it too tight when you adjust it? you should be able to pull the chain up just a little after adjustment. another thing is have you used a small pick to clean the groove in the bar. sometimes a piece of wood gets stuck in there. also remember the edges of the bar are to be smooth and need to be filed occasionally.

Stop sawdust shavings from coming in the carburetor section and where is the oiler adjustment?chain seems dry.


Sawdust is normal, however keeping the chain sharp goes a long way in reducing sawdust on the carb filter. A dust brush is good to clear the filter of sawdust each gas or oil fillup. Most chainsaws do not have an oil adjustment. One must check the Bar where the oil is pumped in for sawdust and clear it or reduced oiling will result.

Tip

Checking your chain oiler


Chain oilers are a vital part of keeping your saw running well. No oil can even cause the chain to bind up. Over a period of time it can greatly increase the wear rate of your bar and chain reducing it's life. Chain oilers seldom go bad they just get clogged up with sawdust.

Remove the housing that covers that bar and sprocket. There are two plates on each side of the bar that set over the studs.They may be identical or slightly different depending on the saw but at least one of them will have a hole in it for the oiler. If you remove the bar and both plates you will see the oiler hole on the saw housing. This oiler injects oil through the plate and into a small hole in the bar where the chain picks it up and carries it around the saw. If this hole becomes plugged with sawdust it will keep your saw from oiling the bar proplerly. This hole should be cleaned out periodically. It's not a bad idea to remove the whole chain periodically and clean the chain guide all the way around the bar and get any sawdust buildup out so the oil can flow better.

My saw is not oiling enough. It only uses approximately 1/4 tank of oil per gas fill up. I cleaned out the tank until the filter is clean and adjusted the oiler screw to it's most open position. What...


Release the chain brake and remove the bar and chain. Clean the engine area where the bar fits to, then start the engine--oil should ooze out of the side port. In that case, clean the bar drive-end small oil passages that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each edge. These passages commonly plug with sawdust/dirt over time and cause greatly reduced oil to the chain/bar. When all is back together, run the saw at speed with the bar tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after a moment or two of running. Adjust the oil volume screw to achieve that result. Hope this helps!

Brand new poulan pro 4620avx--bar oil is coming out of oiler but not getting onto chain


Hello. Thin your bar oil just a wee bit with some kerosene. If you have a gallon of bar oil add 1/4 cup of kerosene, stir it up and you will be fine. For starters also, directly apply some bar oil to the chain so that you are always using a well lubed chain. Joe

Flymo 2200 chain oil leak when machine is running


That chainsaw should leak oil off the bar. A small amount of oil flipping off the chain is how it is suppose to work. If it is a large amount of oil dripping from near the sprocket then you probably need to do some cleaning.

No oil getting to bar and chain on 20in. homelite chain saw


Take the cover off the sprocket for the chain and loosen the adjusting screw so you can remove the bar. Remove the chain from around the bar. In the read of the bar there is usually one or two small holes less than 1/4th inch. This is where the oil injector shoots oil into the bar for oiling the chain. The hole can become plugged with sawdust thus stopping the flow of oil. Clean out this hole as well as the injector nozzle for the oil underneath the bar. Not a bad idea to run something slim all the way around the bar in the grove that the chain runs in. This will remove all the excess sawdust that can keep the oiler from working.

Blade will run for about a minute. Then locks up if i give it a minute and force the chain to move it will run for a minute the i will have to wait again


Need to make sure your oiler is working. If not the chain will get hot and expand thus locking it up from friction. There is about a 1/4" hole in the rear of the bar where the oiler feeds oil to the chain. Sometimes this hole gets filled with sawdust. Clean it out and make sure you're getting oil to the chain. When you rev the engine and the chain turns you should see it throwing a small amount of oil off the tip of the bar towards the ground. If you don't see the oil then you need to get that fixed.

Husqvarna 359 leaking chain oil


Remove the sprocket cover, bar, and chain. Find area where oil is discharged from case--is any part of the rubber seal damaged? Next, use compressed air to clean sawdust and dirt from oiler ports in rear of bar as well as the chain slot. Are you using motor oil instead of bar oil? Make sure there is nothing to prevent bar from making close contact with oiler port in case. Reassemble all parts and adjust chain tension.
