Hi Sally, I guess you don't have the owners manual. It tells you how to adjust chain tension. If you look around near the motor side of the bar, you should see two nuts that hold a bracket tight against the bar and an adjustment screw or bolt or something to loosen or tighten the chain by moving the bar or making it longer or shorter. Adjust that so that the bar is as short as possible and put the chain back in place. Then tighten that feature till the chain is snug again and tighten the two nuts to hold the bar firmly.

Husqvarna 50 chain keeps coming off


Are you adjusting the chain tension correctly?? Make sure the bar in installed correctly with the tension adjustment pin in the appropriate hole. Elevate the tip of the guide bar while adjusting the chain adjustment screw until the chain is snug but not tight. Then tighten the bar bolts without lowering the tip of the bar. Also ensure the drive links are engaging the sprocket correctly.

If the chain is adjusted correctly and the problem still exists, remove the sprocket side cover, bar and chain and inspect the sprocket for extreme wear. Once the sprocket is worn excessively it won't want to engage the drive links of the chain correctly which could be the source of the problem. If so, replace both the sprocket and the chain because the excess wear of the sprocket could have damaged the drive links of the chain and putting an old worn chain back on with a new sprocket will cause the new sprocket to begin wearing prematurely.

How do i change the chain on my model 108526-01


The proper sequence to installing the chain should be to first ensure the brake is in the 'unlocked' position then loosen the chain adjustment screw, slip the chain over the back of the sprocket, align the chain with the bar, slip the bar onto the bar mounting studs ensuring the adjustment pin slips into the appropriate hole in the bar. Then slip the outer chain cover over the bar studs, elevate the front end of the bar and tighten the bar mounting nuts to 'snug'. Adjust the chain tension to the desired setting ensuring the front of the guide bar remains elevated, then tighten the nuts to secure the bar.


Remember to unlock the brake BEFORE removing the bar and chain because it is so much easier to unlock it mounted on the saw if yours is the design that comes off with the cover.

Keeping the front of the bar elevated during assembly and adjustment of the chain will keep the chain tension correct for a much longer period.

How do i get the chain back on the bar???


It depends on how it came off. Was it way too loose? Undo the two nuts holding the bar to the motor, slip the bar off the tapered tang that is part of the chain tensioner, put the chain on the bar and around the drive sprocket/gear. You may have to loosen the tensioner screw located on one side of the bar to have enough slack to get the chain on correctly. Reinstall the bar and holding nuts (loosely at first) and adjust the chain tensioner screw so that the chain is tight enough that can pull up on the links in the center of the bar but not loose enough so that the links come comepletely out of the bar slot.

Need to put a new chain on a Husqvara 235 14 inch chain saw?


Check that the chain brake is in disengaged position by
moving the front hand guard towards the front handle.
Remove the bar nuts and remove the clutch cover (chain
brake). Take off the transportation ring.
Fit the bar over the bar bolts. Place the bar in its rearmost
position. Place the chain over the drive sprocket locate it in
the groove on the bar. Begin on the top edge of the bar.

Make sure that the edges of the cutting links are facing
forward on the top edge of the bar.
Fit the clutch cover (chain brake) and locate the chain
adjuster pin in the cut-out in the bar. Check that the drive
links of the chain fit correctly on the drive sprocket and that
the chain is in the groove on the bar. Tighten the bar nuts
finger-tight.
Tension the chain by turning the chain tensioning screw
clockwise using the combination spanner. The chain
should be tensioned until it does not sag from the
underside of the bar.
The chain is correctly tensioned when it does not sag from
the underside of the bar, but can still be turned easily by
hand. Hold up the bar tip and tighten the bar nuts with the
combination spanner.
When fitting a new chain, the chain tension has to be
checked frequently until the chain is run-in. Check the
chain tension regularly. A correctly tensioned chain
ensures good cutting performance and long life.

How do i put a chain back on a chainsaw?


Locate the bolts on the bar, down close to the engine. Loosen them. locate the chain tensioning adjustment, again, close to the engine, but on the other side. Loosen it also. Place your chain on the bar and on the sprocket. Tighten the bolts enough to take the slack out of the bar, but not so much that you cannot use the adjustment tensioning screw. Tighten up on the tension adjustment until the tension on the chain is right, and then tighten the bolts.

I cannot find my manual to my 18v cordless chainsaw ccs818. I need directions for putting the chain back on. I would like to download a copy of the manual.


Your manual can be found here:

http://www.blackanddecker.com/Manuals.aspx with pop-ups enabled then enter your model number
or
http://www.dewaltservicenet.com/documents/English/Instruction%20Manual/90560838,CCS818.pdf

See the instructions for replacing the chain on page 11. It makes reference to the figures on page 6 so that you know exactly what to remove.

Basically... loosen the bar allen screws. Remove the sprocket cover. Loosen the bar retaining bolts. Use a flat bladed screwdriver on the bar / chain tension screw to shorten the bar enough to install the chain. Then adjust the chain tensioner so that there is just a little slack in the chain at the bottom of bar between the drive sprocket and the bar. Tighten the bar retaining bolts install the cover / tighten all cover fasteners. (see details D and E page 6 of the 2nd link above.)

The steps below are copied from the manual.... I can not undo the formatting and can not post the figures here due to size restrictions..

Replacing the Saw Chain

CAUTION: Sharp chain. Always wear protective gloves when

handling the chain. The chain is sharp and can cut you when it is

not running.

WARNING: Sharp moving chain. To prevent accidental

operation, insure that battery is disconnected from the tool

before performing the following operations. Failure to do this

could result in serious personal injury.

• Place the saw on a firm surface. Rotate the two allen head screws

(11) counterclockwise with the wrench (13) provided as shown in

figure E.

• To remove the saw chain (9), rotate the tension adjustment screw

(23) in the front of the housing using the flat screwdriver end of the

wrench (13) as shown in figure F. Turning the screw

counterclockwise allows the guide bar to recede and reduces the

tension on the chain so that it may be removed.

• Remove sprocket cover (10) and allen head screws (11).

• Lift the worn saw chain (9) out of the groove in the guide bar (8).

• Place new chain in groove of guide bar making sure saw teeth are

facing correct direction by matching arrow on chain with graphic on

housing shown in figure G.

• Place the saw chain and guide bar assembly around the sprocket

(19). Check to make sure that the slot (20) in the guide bar (8) is

over the two location pins (21) shown in figure E and that the hole

below the slot is located over the adjustment pin (22).

• Replace sprocket cover (10) and thread allen head screws (11) in

with wrench until snug, then back wrench off one full turn.

• Pull bar nose up and keep it up as you adjust tension.

• Rotate the tension adjustment screw (23) in the front of the housing

clockwise to increase the chain tension as in Figure F.

Follow instructions in "Adjusting Chain Tension" section.

• While still holding the bar nose up, securely tighten the rear allen

screw (11) first, then tighten the front allen screw.

• When the chain is new check the tension frequently (after

disconnecting battery) during the first 2 hours of use as a new chain

stretches slightly.

Adjusting Chain Tension

CAUTION: Sharp chain. Always wear protective gloves when

handling the chain. The chain is sharp and can cut you when it is

not running.

WARNING: Sharp moving chain. To prevent accidental

operation, insure that battery is disconnected from the tool

before performing the following operations. Failure to do this

could result in serious personal injury.

• With the saw still on a firm surface check the chain tension. The
tension is correct when the chain snaps back after being pulled

1/8 inch (3mm) away from the guide bar (8) with light force from the

middle finger and thumb as shown in figure H. There should be no

"sag" between the guide bar and the chain on the underside as

shown in figure I.

• To adjust saw chain tension, loosen the allen head screws (11).

• Rotate the tension adjustment screw (23) in the front of the housing

using the flat screwdriver end of the wrench (13) as shown in

figure F.

• Do not over-tension the chain as this will lead to excessive wear

and will reduce the life of the bar and chain. Overtensioning also

reduces the amount of cuts you will get per battery charge.

• Once chain tension is correct, tighten allen head screws (11).

• When the chain is new check the tension frequently (after

disconnecting battery) during the first 2 hours of use as a new chain
stretches slightly.

Setting blade tension withouty gauge


With the chainsaw positioned and with the bar/chain combo loosely assembled properly on the chainsaw power-head. With the guide bar/chain adjuster inserted properly into the bar. Using a rag or wearing gloves. Notice how much up and down movement is at the guide bar tip. You must use this to your best advantage!! With the chain adjuster loose. finger tighten the bar nut or nuts. Hold the bar-chain assembly in the up position. To tension the chain, turn the adjuster in the correct direction to tighten the chain. DO NOT LOOSEN YOUR HOLD ON THE BAR, KEEP THE BAR IN THE UP POSITION. Rotate the chain along the bar to make sure it is free to move back and forth, KEEP THE BAR UP. Tighten the tensioner until the chain just touches the bottom of the guide bar. Check for back and forth movement again. Tighten the tensioner no more than a quarter of a turn. CONTINUE TO HOLD THE BAR UP. Now tighten the bar buts or nut snugly against the sprocket & chain guard cover. Check for movement again. If satisfactorily tight and free movement is attained the chain bar combination is properly adjusted.
This scenario will change with different types and brands of chainsaws. It is always very helpful if posters would include a modicum of make, model information with their queries.

POULAN CHAIN SAW MODEL 1420 ''Chain came off track


Chain is probably stretched. SAFETY FIRST. Electric saw, make sure power is unplugged. Gas saw, make sure sparkplug wire is removed. Remove the cover where the bar is attached to the saw. U should see an adjustment screw for chain tension and one or more bar lockdown screws. Loosen the lockdown screws and turn the tension adjustment screw to permit the bar to slide back toward the motor. Put the chain back in the bar track all the way around. Adjust the tension screw to tighten chain enough you can't pull it out of the track at any spot. Slide the chain by hand at least one complete revolution feeling for any rough spots. If it moves freely, turn the tension screw enough to tighten the chain properly. Correct tension should allow you to pull the chain appx. 1/16 to 1/8 inch from the bar. Tighten the lockdown screws, replace the cover. Rotate chain by hand a couple of revolutions again to check for smoothness again before starting the saw.

Chain keeps jumping off


when you adjust the tension of the chain, ensure the tip of the bar has upward pressure applied to it. This ensures the tension is correct while in use. Improper tension adjustment can cause the chain to loosen in use and "jump" off the bar. Improper adjustment can also stretch the chain leading to the same result.
