Do not run the saw any more, remove the fixing nut and take the side cover off, you may well have done some damage now,if the brake was activated prior to you re fitting it, the band would have been smaller than the drum, this will now have forced the band into the drum seizing the two together, check the condition of the brake band,and sprocket, any sign of damage and it will have to be replaced.
You need to load the brake before re fitting, clamp the cover in a vice , be carefull not to damage the cover, either remove the hand guard from the machine and use this as a tool too fit into the brake quadrant and re load, or find a suitable u spanner that will engage into the quadrant to load the brake, you will need a fair amount of pressure to compress the internal spring, and load the brake.
Good luck

How to remove the chain from a husqvarna 235e chainsaw?


Like this or pretty close.





  1. Cock brake while expanding chain brake binder by pulling brake handle towards left-hand (wrap-around) handle grip, hard, until it locks in place.


  2. Loosen 2 brake-asssembly-and- bar retaining nuts but do not remove yet.


  3. Unscrew (turn CCW) bar adjustment screw on front face of unit in order to shorten bar and slacken saw chain.


  4. Slip chain off bar over bar tip and towards inward side of bar.


  5. Remove two nuts loosened in step 2 and pull brake assembly and bar straight out and off bar mounting studs.


  6. While rotating clutch/brake-drum, maneuver saw chain off sprocket and around drum perimeter to remove from saw.


  7. Repeat/reverse steps 6 thru 1 in that order to reassemble.

Does the husq 440e have an oil adjustment on it?


Hi mwaltz48,

Yes, Huskys have a screw adjustment on the bottom, under the chain sprocket assembly.
While looking at the bar side of the saw, turn it over and you'll see a screw that has 3 positions.
Turn the screw to the right will decrease the oil flow, left to increase it. If you put a longer blade on, you should increase the oil flow.

A way to check your oil flow is to run the saw with the blade pointing at something light, such as a freshly cut chunk of wood, or the end of a log, etc. You should see a light line of oil appear.

I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

Husqvarna chainsaw 235e starts but the chain won't move. Maybe the brake is stuck??


Does the brake seem to 'snap-over' like it should? Pull it back to release position, and remove the drive cover. Check the entire brake for debris accumulation or bent/damaged brake band. Check the chain to see if it is being oiled. Remove the bar/chain and clean the entire assembly, particularly the small oil passages in the drive end of the bar. Start the engine and watch for oil oozing out of the small side port where the bar fits. If ok, reassemble the bar/chain. If no oil comes out, investigate the oil pump, lines, and filter/valve in the oil tank. Mount the side cover, but leave the fasteners finger tight. (The chain teeth cut toward you on the bottom run) Tighten the chain until the lower run comes up to the bar, but can still be turned by hand. Tighten the fasteners and recheck the tension. Trip the chain brake and make sure it locks the chain, then release it and make sure it turns freely. Check the chain oiling by running the bar tip at speed near some cardboard--it should leave a thin line of oil on the board. Hope this helps!

Chain will not move freely. When hitting gas will


Did anyone explain how a chain brake works?
Pull the forward most handle as far aft as possible. It should click if it was tripped. Wearing gloves can you easily rotate the chain?
Remove the clutch cover. If it seems stuck the chain brake is tripped do not force it off, reset the brake. Inspect all interior parts for small twigs or pieces of tree that have jammed the brake or clutch. Anything beyond this please see the dealer that sold it to you. HTH

Husqvarna chainsaw 440e - enough chain lube?


That seems low to me. Page 15 in your manual is the only oil discussion I found. Usually there is an oil pump adjustment reference somewhere. I didn't see one beyond return it for service on page 15. Are the chain and bar hot after cutting a while? I recommend you not get a longer bar without an oiler adjustment. I think the hand of the EPA has been here.

An IPL (exploded parts list) for a 440 can be found here:
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/USA/2009/I09000/I0901018.pdf
There is no oiler adjuster listed. HTH

Might be a good idea to copy the IPL,
