Question about Remington 16" Electric Chain Saw
I have an older remington 3.0 hp electric chain saw and need to know how to assemble chain tightning hardware.
You need “Bar and Chain Oil”, available at hardware stores and home centers. It is SAE 30 with additives to make it adhere to your bar and chain.
An excerpt from a Remington manual follows (edited).
FILLING OIL TANK
1. Remove oil cap.
2. Fill oil tank with SAE 30 motor oil if the temperature is between 30 & 75°F.
• Colder use SAE 10 oil.
• Warmer use SAE 40 oil.
3. Replace oil cap at once. Tighten oil cap firmly for a good seal. This will avoid oil seepage from tank.
4. Wipe off excess oil.
• It is normal for oil to seep when saw is not in use.
• Empty oil tank after each use to prevent seepage.
Some manuals go from page 6 to page 14. This one is very good.
If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Good Luck. HTH

You can buy this complete saw for about 75.00 on amazon. I've heard of others burning up the field and armature in this model saw. You can buy a homelite electric at Home Depot 50-75 depending on model. Doesn't seem like it would be worth fixing, only to have it burn up again. Sounds like it needs a thermal overload to prevent damage. GOOD LUCK1

Use bar and chain oil, not regular motor oil. Bar and chain oil has an additive especially for chainsaws.
Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks for visiting fixya.com

Testimonial: "THANKS A LOT, JUST WHAT I NEEDED"
The only oil you need for your electric chain saw is "Bar and Chain" oil...specially formulated oil sold at Loews,HomeDepot,Ace Hardware, Auto parts stores,etc...
You use this oil to lubricate the chain and bar of your chainsaw when you are using it.
It will go into the oil tank and auto feed to the chain and bar...but keep a check on the oil level to make sure it is being used.
Refill tank when needed.
