Hi moe.... sometimes when the chain comes off it damages the bar or the chain and causes what you are now experiencing. Check the groove in the bar to make sure it does not have a burr or a spot where the chain is too tight. also check the chain to be sure that there is not a bent part. When you put the chain into the bar, it should spin freely, unless the chain tension is too tight.
Once you check the bar and the chain and repair any damage be sure to generously lubricate the bar and the chain. Then be sure that the chain tension is adjusted so that it is not too loose or too tight. When you raise up on the chain in the middle of the bar it should barely clear the bar.

It sounds like the small hole in your bar that carries the oil to the chain is blocked. Start by removing the bar and chain from the saw. Clean around the chain mounting area on the motor block. Take the chain off the bar and clear out the groove in the bar working from the end with the sprocket wheel to the mounting on the motor block. Use a fine stiff 'poker' that goes into the groove and clear all the rubbish out. If possible also blow it out with compressed air. Near the mounting end you should see a small hole on that goes from the outside of the bar to the bottom of the groove. If it is blocked clear it out. Make sure the sprocket turns freely and remount the bar and chain. If you still have the problem then the bar must be wrong for the saw - it could be a Husky bar that has the hole in a slightly different place!

Tryed to put on a chain cant get it back togather right


Completely loosen the chain tensioner. When looking at the saw from the sprocket side(bar to the right) the chain WILL travel clockwise. Fit the chain on the bar.(ensure that the chain travels in collation with the sprocket at the end of the bar if equipped). When looking at the saw from the sprocket side(bar to the right) the chain WILL travel clockwise. With the chain still in the bar, fit the 5 or so links in the sprocket on the powerhead, engage the bar with the bar nuts, then lastly engage the chain in the tensioner. Place the sprocket cover and nuts. Tighten nuts then loosen about .5 turn. Adjust chain tensioner. Retighten nuts. See that tightening the nuts made your chain tighter, loosen nuts readjust chain, tighten nuts. With gloves on and the chain brake disengaged please ensure the chain travels around the bar. Put on your chaps and start cutting.

Husky 365 ihave just put a new chain on it cuts perfectly but every now and then the chain jams up with wood the end cog wont turn and I need to pull the chain off to freeit up, any idea's please?


make sure you clean your bar while chain is off..take a feeler gauge like .040 or so the bigger the better and slide it through the grove in the bar all the way around and pull all the crud out then make sure your oil holes in bar are cleaned out so oil will run through the holes into the groove in bar, also if you have an end sprocket in bar make sure it spins freely with chain off,could of been pinched one time or another along with bar, thats why you use a feeler gage to check out bar for being pinched while you are cleaning it out. good luck

I lost my manual and need to change the chain on my homelite chainsaw... never had one of these before... stihl and husky are pretty straight forward... this one not so much...


Turn the chain brake off, then remove the side cover (back off the adjustment screw several turns first). Clean the oil ports in the rear of the bar and the area around the oil outlet port. Fit the chain to the sprocket, then work the bar into the chain and pull the bar outward to tighten the chain. Fit the cover back making sure the adjustment tang drops into the large hole in the bar. Run the mounting nuts up finger tight, adjust the chain so that it doesn't droop from the bar, but allows the chain to be turned by hand, then tighten the nuts and recheck chain tension. Hope this helps!

Chain came off ,need to know how to put it back on!!!


On the chain saw there should be a panel held on by two screws or nuts where the bar and chain is attached. Remove the two screws or nuts and the panel and you will expose the chain and sprocket. Loop the chain around the sprocket and bar. Put the bar with the chain around the sprocket back on the saw, reinstall the cover with the two screws/nuts, but do not tighten too tight.(You will want to be able to move the bar with the chain.) Then pull the bar away from the saw to tighten the chain, once the chain it tight, then you will retighten the screws or nuts to lock the bar and chain in place. Be sure you lube the chain and bar with "Bar Oil" before starting to put the saw into service. Good Luck...I hope this helped Please rate me, Thanks

Husky 460 chains too long (or is the bar too short)


Hello, your bar may not be seating on the adjusting pin properly.Like you I have cut thousands of cords used every saw made and the only time something like this happens is when the adjuster isn't seating properly. Give me your model number and I'll try and round up a manual for you.
