There is an adjuster screw on the bottom of the saw, that has three settings. It sounds like it is turned up to high. After you adjust it to a lower setting, start the saw and then put a board in front of the bar. Rev the saw up while the chain is going and you can see lines on the board made from the oil. I usually make three lines to determine how much oil is lubing the bar. Also, lube the bar tip if you have an lube hole on your bar. The lube hole is about the size of a ink pen head. You will have to purchase a bar tip luber from your dealer. They are inexpensive and will save on bar life.

One question - are you using bar oil? It is thicker and stickier than most oils.

Unable to locate adjustment control for chain oiler model 345 husqvarna chainsaw


Not all 345 machines had an adjustable oiler, it is retro fittable if it does not, however if it hs an adjuster, the screw is located on the bottom of the saw between the cranckcase and the fuel tank, just below the sprocket, there will be an oil symbol and a - and + sign there, the pump is three position, for 13/15/18" bars.

Bar oil adjuster is located?


Not all 345 machines had a adjustable oiler as standard, they were retro fittable, if it has an adjustable pump there will be a screw head under the crankcase below the sprocket, you will see a + and - sign on the fuel tank with an oil drop.

I have a 345,after i adjust the chain,i use just a few minutes and the chain seems to get very tight and does not spin easily by hand


Check the sprocket to see if it has very deep groves wore into it.The chain might be getting in and out of the worn grove making it get tight.You also might not be getting enough oil to the chain.If the sprockets ok try cleaning the bar grove out with something like a small flat blade screw driver.There are small oil holes near the bar bolt holes.they need to be cleaned out every so offten.Blowing it out with compressed air helps .You should also flip the bar over every 2 to 3 hours of use.So it doesen't get wore bad on one side.Also try running the saw with the bar off to see if oil is coming out ok.If not your screen inside the oil tank might be plugged up.

Husqvarna 345 bar oiler


Remove the bar and chain. Start the engine and observe the oil delivery port in the side of the engine case. At a fairly fast speed, the oil should ooze out of the port. If little or nothing, check the pump, lines, and in-tank filter. If ok, clean the bar drive-end holes of sawdust and dirt, especially the small passages that go from the large holes out to the chain groove. Clean the entire groove and the outer end sprocket. Reassemble and test the oiling by running the bar tip at speed in front of a piece of cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments. Hope this helps!

I cant get oil to the chain on my husqvarna 345.


You may have a problem with blockage in the oiler system somewhere. Try emptying out all of the bar oil and swishing some gas around in the bar oil tank to clean it out. This will work some of the time. Sometimes you have to take the oiler off and blow thru the lines into the tank,( make sure the oil fill cap is off) and blow into the oil tank out thru the line to clear out any debris . The adjustment for the oil pump should be on the bottom of the saw. Here is the manual with the procedure on page 32 of the manual. Hope that helps you.

Where is the bar oil adjusted from on husqvarna 345


Turn the Hus 345 chain saw upside down, you may see a little Icon of a oil droplet and a + - arrow by the chain. THe adjustment screw is not pictured in any of the standard user manuals,. but it is a small black slot headed screw over a rectangale metal tab by the chain. I believe if you turn it counter-clockwise, it will give you more oil,, It did for me. If you have the bar off, you can start the saw and see it come out the hole, that would verify your oil pump is working. Make sure the holes on the bar are clean also. running the saw at a fast idle for 1 min should oil the chain well enouth that it starts spraying off the end of the bar when you gun the engine.

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

Husqvarnar model no 345 oil feed problem


First thing check the feed hole through which the oil is delivered to the bar itself for debris,secondly the worm gear turning the pump shafft need only be slightly damaged to hamper full oil flow , next take the oil filler cap off, (with the bar ,chain ,bar plates, and oiler removed ) look where the oil pick up is in the case half and remove it and check for clogging and / or tears in the rubber hose,
if the cap is equipped with a breathing filler cap check make sure the cap breathes this will also hamper maximun oil flow capacity,
I stand by this , as I have dealt with product for close to 2 decades and know it intimately
