SOURCE: chain tension
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.

If the housing itself is broken you will probably be better off buying a new or used say. As that part would be very expensive and you will still have a used saw.

the adjustment screw near the end of the bar( next to the engine) needs to be turned in to tighten the chain just don't tighten it to much

These are the instructions for adjusting the chain. They are taken directly from the manual available at http://ep.yimg.com/ty/cdn/razorama/e100e200e300manual.pdf
To adjust the chain:
1. Loosen the axle
2. Loosen the brake anchor (this is attached with the small bolt in the long slot on the left side of the rear fork)
3. Tighten the tension adjusters on the axle 1/8 to 1/4 turn to tension the chain. Tighten both adjusters the exact same amount to maintain the wheel alignment.
Note: this system of adjusters is common to motorcycles and BMX
bicycles so I your are not familiar with it, if you know anyone who is,
they would not have a problem adjusting it for you.
Chain tension: The chain should be "just not-quite snug" in other
words, not taut or sloppy loose. BE CAREFUL NOT TO ADJUST TOO TIGHT. The tensioning system can easily impart too much tension and snap the chain or bend the motor output shaft. Turn the adjusters 1/8 to 1/4 turn at a time and recheck the tension each time.
4. Once the tension is good, tighten the axle and brake anchor bolt. Test run the scooter. Readjust as needed.
