It may well just need the carb adjusted, unfortunatley there is a special tool required the adjust the screws, the L screw on the carb may need richening up, so if you manage to get the tool unscrew it by 1/4 out ( anti cliock wise ) tool part no. 530035560

346XP Husqvarna chainsaw acts like its seized then after a few minutes turns over fine and starts.whats wrong?

It has run too lean for a while and the piston and rings are damaged. The piston is probably picked up and grows with heat enough to partially seize when hot, frees off when it cools down. It needs a new piston and rings set. If you are lucky the bore is not too badly damaged and may go again with a new piston. When/if you get it fixed make the mixture (air:fuel) richer and check you have enough oil in the fuel.

My saw runs good at idle and mid rang but when I stick it into a large limb and try to cut it bogs down and will die if I don't let go of the throttle. It acts as if it is starving for fuel. I tried to...

I have had to change a few fuel tank breathers on the 455 and 460 saws, when it starts to die try to slacken off the fuel filler cap, if it picks up again it is a brather issue, the breather is under the starter cover at the top right hand corner.

My husqvarna chain saw will start fine and run good and cut good for a few minutes then it will start running fast then slow down run fast slow down it will do that 3 or 4 times then cut off any idea...

It certainly sounds fuel related, remove the fuel hose from the fuel tank and replace the filter on the end, try the machine again, if it is no better it could well be an issue with the fuel tank breather, to test this run the saw until the problem starts to occur, slacken the fuel cap enough to allow air into the tank, if the machine picks up and runs well you will need to replace the tank breather, let us know if this works and i will will go through how to change the breather.

Saw runs great then bogs down 20 sec. after i start cutting i let off it runs good then bogs again when cutting after a few sec

Check your air filter, if clean chances are your carburetor needs to be rebuilt. the carburetor has thin diapragms that get hard and won't meter the fuel in fast enough.

Runs great for 30 sec. to 1 min. then dies slowly

Is it your chain saw Husqvarna 40?

Try carb adjustments H-3/4 turn ,L-2 turns and T a little higher
I presume that compression and ignition sistem is adequate for the engine to run.Good luck

Husqvana 61 chainsaw starts but cuts out after a few seconds

Are you pumping the primer till it's full of fuel? The fuel pump diaphram is only strong enough to keep things flowing after you have pumped it up. you will need to prime it up again if you run it out of fuel or if it sits any length of time
