Remove the fuel hose from inide the fuel tank and replace the fuel filter, remove the top cover and clean the air filter, now try again, the chain oil is delivered to the top of the bar and is taken around the bar by the drive links, make sure you are useing a non fling chain oil, remove the guide bar and clean out the delivery hole, now try again.

Why does the chain keeps tightening


Has it ever come off while using it? If so, there may be burrs on the drive teeth making the chain wider than the bar opening, also if there is no oil getting to chain while operating chain could bind from heat, check sprocket on the bar tip for blockage and inspect the clutch bearing.

How do I take the agitator end caps off?


Alliemay657:

It sometimes takes a 2 grunt pull to remove the end caps and bearings from the agitator (called the beater bar). I have had to use a flat blade screwdriver to CAREFULLY pry the end caps and bearings from a beater bar. Be careful not to stab your hand with the screwdriver (It HURTS!!!) Once you get the end caps and bearings off, clean the hair and carpet fibers from the ends of the beater bar and bearings and end caps. If the bearings don't turn easily, dribble some rubbing alcohol on them (I use a spray bottle filled with alcohol) and spin them until they spin freely. Dry the bearings until there is no alcohol in them. Put a drop or two of light machine oil in each bearing (3 in 1 oil will do), and spin the bearings to distribute the oil and ensure they spin freely. Now would be a good time to check the vacuum head and hose for clogs. Push the bearings and end caps back on the beater bar and reinstall the beater bar (with a new belt). Reinstall the foot plate, and your machine should run like new

Vacuum doesnt pick up very well any more


Larry Kessler:

Unplug the vacuum and lay it down on the floor upside down on some newspaper. Remove the vacuum head foot plate with a Phillips head screwdriver. Remove the beater bar and belt by pulling straight up on the beater bar. Pull the end caps and bearings from the ends of the beater bar... it may take a two-grunt pull to remove them, or CAREFULLY use a screwdriver to pry them off. Remove the hair, carpet fibers and other gunk from the ends of the beater bar, bearings and end caps. Pour (or spray) alcohol on the bearings and spin them until they spin freely. Dry the bearings so there is no alcohol in them.
Put a few drops of light machine oil in the bearings, (3 in 1 oil will do), and spin the bearings to distribute the oil and ensure the bearings spin freely. Now would be a good time to check the vacuum head opening and the hose for clogs. Reassemble the end caps and bearings to the ends of the beater bar and reinstall the beater bar assembly (with a new belt) in the vacuum head. Reinstall the foot plate, and your machine should pick up fuzz balls the size of Michigan!

My 340 (,98) saw blade was dry while cutting, I shut down. I believe it is the oiler, idea's? js


If the chain is dry it has stopped oiling, remove the bar and clean out the bar groove and oil hole in the bar, there is a filter in the oil tank, to acess this you need to turn the saw upside down, look between the crankcase and fuel tank ( guide bar side ) you will see a cross point self tapping screw, this is retaining a plastic pull out filter, once the screw is out you may need to grab the filter with a pair of long nose pliers to remove it. There is also a drive gear driven by the back of the sprocket, this will require removal of the clutch to acess the gear. To remove the clutch put the screw driver side of the combi spanner supplird with the saw into one of the cut-a-ways in the clutch spider and jar the clutch off usibg a hammer to strike the other end of the combi tool, the clutch is just spun onto the crank, left hand thread.
Good luck

Chainsaw starts ok. When I try to cut it will stop half way. When I hit throttle it the chain will move and then it slows down and stops. Any sugestions?


Make sure the bar and chain is being properly lubricated by running the saw at speed with the tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after a moment or two. If dry, remove the bar and chain (make sure the chain brake is set to off), and clean the engine area where the bar fits to it. Start the engine--oil should ooze out of the small port in the engine side. If ok, clean the small oil passages that run from the large holes (in the drive end of the bar) out to the chain groove on the bar edge. Wash out the interior of the clutch hub with spray carburetor cleaner to remove excess oil. Reassemble the bar/chain and adjust the chain until it just comes up to the lower bar, but not so tight that you can't turn the chain easily by hand. Make sure the chain is filed sharp enough to cut your fingers if not careful. Hope this helps!

Chain saw starts and runs chain is moving at high speed but when placed against log it slows to a stop and does not cut, what should I do


Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain. Wash out the interior of the clutch with spray carburetor cleaner to get rid of oil build-up. Reinstall the bar, chain, and cover after cleaning the bar drive-end small oil passages that run out to the chain groove. Adjust the chain up to the bar, but not so tight that you can't move the chain by hand. Hope this helps!

How much chain bar oil should my husqvarna 340 use?


A rough equivalent is one oil tank for one fuel tank. Check the chain oiling by running the bar tip near some cardboard at speed for a few moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!

Chain oil flowing out afterr replacing chain adjustment screw and bolt


Remove the bar and chain completely. Clean the entire case side where the bar fits as well as the bar drive end oil passages--especially the small channels the send oil out to the chain groove on each side. Back off on the chain adjustment by several turns, then fit the cleaned cover onto the saw after installing the bar and chain. Make sure the adjustment 'tang' fits into one of the large holes in the bar end. Fasten the cover screws/nuts down finger tight, then adjust the bar out until the chain pulls up to the lower run of the bar, but not so tight that you can't move the chain by hand. Tighten the cover fasteners firmly, then recheck chain tension. If ok, do a test cut on a log. Good luck!

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!

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.
