SOURCE: MY ELECTRIC CHAIN SAW

With an electric chainsaw, you only require chainsaw bar oil. There is plenty of brands of chainsaw bar oil available at most hardware or pwer garden tool retailers. Use this oil and not any other generic car oil or anything like that as you will run into problems. Chain bar oil is designed to flow and the higher quality bar oils are better designed to adhere to the chain and tooth components to keep heat on the bar and chain down.

SOURCE: What kind of oil do I use in the oil reservoir of my chain saw?

I believe the reservoir you are talking about is for the bar chain oil. You can get it most anywhere. As for mixing the gas and oil mixture, you will need 2 cycle oil. It is available most everywhere also. Most modern chain saws use a 50:1 mixing ratio which means 2 1/2 ounces of oil to 1 gallon of gas. Hope this helps.

We are in no way connected with RemingtonPower. They are no longer in production and replacement parts are very difficult to find. Often eBay is your only source of parts. Sorry. Lou

SOURCE: 16" Electric Chain Saw: what kind of oil is used for electric chain saw...

I assume you are asking about the oil for the chain. Any good quality "Bar and Chain Oil" will do fine. Do not use motor oil you use in your car engine as it will not properly lube the chain and will result in quicker dulling and early demise of the chain.

You can get the "Bar and Chain Oil" at most hardware stores or Farm Supply stores.

Excessive use of chain oil


Unlike most bigger gasoline powered chainsaws, the Ryobi RCS2040 electric chainsaw does not have an oil adjuster. The oil pump on it is pretty much a simple mechanism that moves the oil on a "cork screw" -it rotates when your chainsaw runs, then your oil glides out of the reservoir into the tube towards the chain oiler. Amount of oil used will depend on two factors: 1.) Type of oil used. We sell winter grade and summer grade (but we are in Southern California, this doesn't make any difference). Our customers prefer the less tackier ones because it doesn't burn their bars under heavy use and it is less strain on the unit, however this drips out fast. 2.) Integrity of your oil line system, and the size of your reservoir (on your model, it IS small). Our rule of thumb here is that if it drips bar & chain oil, it's working. Well, that is unless it's leaking someplace else other than the bar oiler. Check the oil tube - it should be on the bottom of your chainsaw right on the same side as the oil tank.

Generally, speaking for both mid-sized electric and gas powered saws - 45 minutes of worth of cutting should have your bar and oil tank depleted already. Our contractor customers even have it opened way up.

I have a Remington Electric Chain Saw, Model # 111174-01. I can't keep oil in the reservoir. it leaks and runs through the seam in the bottom of the housing leaving a puddle wherever it sits.


The Owner's Manual says "IT IS NOWMAL FOR OIL TO SEEP WHEN SAW IS NOT IN USE. EMPTY OIL TANK AFTER EACH USE TO PREVENT SEEPAGE." Istore mine on a cookie sheet.

My Poulan Pro chain saw (model # PP4620 AVHD) doesot move B&C oil from the oil reservoir to the chain. How can I repair this?


If the ports where the oil comes out aren't clogged, you will have to order a oil pump and then take apart the saw from right underneath the bar. The oil pump is run by a worm gear that strips easily.

My Poulan Pro chain saw (model # PP4620 AVHD) doesot move B&C oil from the oil reservoir to the chain. How can I repair this?


is the area where you tighten up the chain clean there are a few holes in the bar that allow the oil to drip on to the chain if its been used for a while the holes could be clogged take off the bar and chain and clean with a small flat head screwdriver the groove that the chain rides in there should be a hole that goes all the way through make sure you wipe away any wood chipsthen run it and see if it throws out any oil

14/1/2 in. electric chain saw left to me by my dad. What kind of oil do I use and how much oil? Thanks


Hi, if its electric all you need is bar n chain oil. Any brand is fine. Fill the reservoir each time it runs low ( probably about every half hour of cutting). Hope this helps, regards Phil.

I have a Remington 14' Limb n' Trim electric chainsaw. There is an oil reservoir (I think - it has a little rubber cap) and I am not sure if it is for motor oil. If it is, what type of oil should I use?


jmccabe2465-

The reservoir is for bar chain oil, which all chain saws require to allow the chain to operate smoothly and reduce heat build-up from friction.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

How do i know if chain is on correctly/


Does the chain move when the motor is started? Make sure the chain doesn't droop from the lower side of the bar and the teeth cut toward you on the bottom side. The chain should not be so tight that you can't move it by hand. Run the saw for a few moments with the tip near a piece of cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the cardboard. Make sure that the chain is properly sharpened and cuts without undue effort. Hope this helps!

Need service manual for Homelite 16'' electric chain saw model UT 41320. Motor runs but chain stopped in middle of second cut.


chain is too tight on the bar or is lacking lubrication oil. loosen up the bar nuts and back off the chain tensioning screw a touch. make sure the bar oil reservoir is full and the chain is receiving oil when its running.
