The brake ring is contracted in the “brake” position. So it won't fit over the sprocket or drum. How do I loosen it so I can put the cover back on. Seems like this would be simple – but I can't get it to the open position…
Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
You need to load the brake, this is not so easy now it is off the saw, however, there are a few ways to do it, clamp the cover in a vice, be carefull not to damage the cover, now use a suitable spanner to engage into the the three legged actuating ( where the hand guard normally sits ) and twist, it will take some force as you are compressing the inner spring, or you cane remove the hand guard from the saw and use this as a tool to load it, or you can remove the sprocket and clutch, the brake will then sit back onto the saw and can be loaded.

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

There are three main reasons for a chain to come off: Incorrect bar and/or chain for the saw; check to be sure that you are using the proper chain pitch, gauge and number of drive links to match the guide bar. Chain not properly tensioned; It is normal for a new chain to stretch and require frequent adjustment.
Adding an ECHO Scabbard (99988801595) to your chainsaw bar is a great way to protect your bar and chain from damage or impact, while also protecting you from any accidental injury. Made of the same durable material as other ECHO protective cases it provides a safe housing for chainsaw bars.

Husqvarna 345e Hard to start and when it does start it continues to run (chain).
ANSWER : I have a model 435 Husky that had the same hard-to-start problem–warranty service replaced the carburetor and it seems to work ok now. The chain that continues to turn can be fixed by turning the idle-speed screw (not the H or L jet screws) CCW a small amount until it can be accelerated then dropped back to idle to quit driving the chain. Hope this helps!

Hi there,

I got the Husky 240e, with only ~4h of running. my problem is that the chainsaw starts smoothly but when pressing the throttle it is suffocates and turned off. When gently squeezing the throttle it generates speed but once the throttle further squeezed it choke.
I checked the air filter which is clean and the clutch (the chain is free running).

The chainsaw stand in the garage for about 4 months and worked perfectly before.

Can you figure out what happen here? is it fuel filter that might blocked?

Thank You

ANSWER : The symptoms indicate lean running, so check the fuel filter for plugging and the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Husky seems be having troubles with our ethanol treated fuel and may require some warranty attention. We have a year old 435 Husky that would not start after about 3 days of excellent running–warranty replaced the carburetor which seems to have us working well now. Good luck!
