Air Filter Replacement On A Chainsaw

by HIPA Jeremy 24 Nov 2022 0 Comments

This blog is a step-by-step instruction on how to replace a air filter on chainsaws. The most common reason for replacing the air filter is if it is clogged, causing the engine to run poorly or stall.


Before you replace the air filter on your chainsaw, you need to first make sure the chainsaw’s engine has cooled.
Step 1: Release the top cover clips and lift the cover off.
Step 2: Now release the retaining clips securing the air filter and pull the old filter element off.
Step 3: Next remove the mounting screws to release the filter base.
Step 4: Prepare the new air filter for installation by first transferring the gasket from the old filter base to the new one. And transfer the retaining clip as well.
Step 5: Align the new filter base on the carburetor, reposition the carburetor and secure the assembly with the mounting screws.
Step 6: Align the new filter element with the base and secure with the retaining clip. Realign the top cover and secure it with the clips.
