You will probably need a new rear sprocket cluster, it might work again with some light machine oil, but if it happens again while you are peddling hard, could be dangerous to you and your future family.

SOURCE: Chain and Wheels

thank you for using Fixya. the issue you are experiencing is pretty much your free wheel. If it is new, it may have been installed the other way around or the clip in the assembly that serves as a spring for the chainwheel to lock out has been worn out.

Best if you will be able to remove the rear wheel and then check the whole rear hub assembly starting with the freewheel and the axle.

SOURCE: electra hellbilly how to loosen

You need a 15mm metric wrench, boxed type preferably. We use Craftsman in our stores, they are the best. Also, do not loosen just one side, loosen both, then adjust it and tighten. If, you are unsure take it to your dealer, who will be more than happy to help you.

My saw chain will not turn when throttle is pressed. I can barely turn the metal wheel that the rear chain loops around with a pliers. Should I attempt to take it completely apart to see for obstruction or...


Mornin' Bob;
Did you ensure the chain brake is disengaged? Grasp the forward most upper handle (hand guard) and move it toward the nose of the bar (forward). Did it click? If no the brake is engaged. Move it slowly aft (it may require some force at the rear extreme to latch) until it clicks. Wear gloves and try to rotate the chain. If it latched and you still cannot rotate the chain please post back (below), and we will explore further.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

Tillers rotate put in gear wont move was moving just stopped is their a belt or chain in gear box or transmisson


Hi pat,

Yes, there are two chains in the tranny. If the wheels spin freely but don't engage, the smaller chain is broken.

If the wheels don't move, in gear or not, the smaller chain is broken and wrapped around the gears.

It's a bit of a chore to get to....

I can not pedal back and the angle of the lower section is at a 45 degree angle more or less


Make sure your rear derailleur is lined up with one of the rings of teeth on your rear gears( cassette ). Also make sure Your chain is riding correctly on one of the front gears on your crank. If you are still unable to back pedal make sure that one of the cogs (gears) in the rear derailleur arm isn't seized. They must both be able to rotate and the chain should pass through them in a backward S pattern. If you still can't back pedal remove the back wheel or move the chain off the cassette to see if the cassette will freewheel. It has to move freely in a counterclockwise direction in order for you to backpedal. Moving in a clockwise direction engages pawls inside the cassette which lock it into a drive situation which propels the bike. If the cassette will not freewheel in a counterclockwise direction you will need to take the rear wheel to a good bicycle shop to have the cassette replaced. It requires a special tool to remove it. Hope this helps.

I can't get the clutch cover back on my Husqvarna 235 e because the chain break is engaged. Spring is too tight to disengage it.


The chain brake is engaged when the brake handle is moved forward.....to ensure it is actually the chain brake...with the clutch cover off and in your hand, pull the chain brake back...if it will not move, attempt to move it forward to see if it was not engaged...if it moves forward, it is now engaged...pull back to disengage it...a lot of times the problem is not the brake, but rather the bar adjuster....if the brake is not the problem,...loosen the bar adjuster and reassemble the unit...once assembled, then adjust the bar as per the user manual.

let me know what you find.

4 wheel drive will not engage.


use a hohm meter to check the hub coils . the hub coils should have zero resistance. if the armeture plates shows wear marks on them clean and let dry then paint the back side of them with black tremmclad paint .also make sure that the bearings in the helix are not binding. if they are u can take them apaart and lightly file the slots some so the bearings move freely.

Assuming you can pull the starter cord and the engine turns freely (e.g. engine not frozen due to improper fuel mixture), check for debris near the clutch wheel.  Also, loosen the bar tension screw to see if the chain and clutch can move.
If you pull the starter cord and the chain moves, your clutch may either be jammed in the engaged position or may have gone out.
Make sure that you don't have the chain tension too tight and that you always have plenty of bar oil.
