Question about Echo CS400 18" Chain Saw

Chain brake jammed on Echo CS400 chainsaw

I just purchased a new Echo CS-400 chain saw. Prior to shipping the saw, the shipper removed the bar and chain. Apparently while removing the bar, they jammed the chain brake into the locked position. The brake lever (front hand guard) moves freely, but the small metal brake connector that engages the hand guard is jammed forward and won't release. I've opened up the clutch cover where the chain brake mechanism is located, but can't see anything wrong.

You will need to release the brake by applying a very heavy screwdriver to the + shaped part of the brake coupling. Check the action of the brake handle and duplicate it at the the +. Hope this helps!

Remove bar stud on echo chain saw. Cs 306 14 " bar


I don't quite understand the question but, If you are trying to remove the bar on your saw, First it should have come with a tool that looks like a screw driver on one end and, a wrench on the other end. Now!! turn the saw on its side with the Two Bolts facing you. You use the tool to loosen the bolts , just loosen !! next use the screwdriver end to turn the little screw inside the small hole just down from the bolts OK? Turn the screw , which loosen's the chain. Now take the bolts off and put them somewhere SAFE so you can find them when ready to put back on. Pull the plastic cover off , chain off, NOW YOU CAN REMOVE the BAR . I hope this is what you need.

Replace clutch spring


You need to remove the clutch assy from the chainsaw prior trying to replace the spring. Be aware that the clutch assy is no longer available so be careful not to damage it on removal.

The manual is available here:

The idle speed of the negine may be too high.
Page 26 of the manual gives instructions for adjusting the speed with the "T" screw on the carburettor.

How to replace primer bulb on small echo gas chain saw.


I just replaced the primer bulb on my Echo cs-305.
I didn't find the parts list too helpful.

It's easy. All you have to do is remove the air filter and look at the existing bulb from the bottom-- you can reach in with a screwdriver and pop the 'feet' holding it in place off their catches. When I put the new one in, I attached the tubes using a pair of needlenose pliers.
