SOURCE: How can i tighten the chain
if you have used all the adjustment I recommend you replace the chain. Take it with you to a local saw shop (I prefer Stihl chain to all others) for use as a replacement pattern. Ask the technician making your replacement whether he thinks it a good idea to remove a link from your existing chain. He is the only one with expertise, in a position to provide an informed answer, and he has the necessary tools to accomplish it. If the chain breaks at speed it can be ugly.
If you take your saw with you the technician (mid day, mid week) will likely remove the old and install the new chains as part of the service. Ask to watch. There is a procedure in your OM. HTH

SOURCE: chain saw chain is loose
Loosen the side cover nuts, then turn the adjuster CW to bring the chain up to the lower edge of the bar, then check to see if the chain will move fairly easily by hand. Tighten the clamp nuts and recheck tension. If chain seems to get loose quickly again, it may not be sharpened correctly causing heat to build in the chain. You should see no reflection of light from the cutting edges if filed correctly and the saw should require very little pressure for it to cut rapidly. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Hot bar loose chain
Remove the bar and chain from the engine. Clean the side of the engine where the bar fits, start the engine and run fast for several moments. Oil should ooze out of a port and run down the engine side. If nothing, then the oil lines, valves, tank filter, and the oil pump (behind the clutch assembly) should be checked for plugging, breakage, or other problems. If oil comes out, then clean the oil holes in the bar drive end including the two small holes that lead from the larger holes out to the chain groove on each side. Clean the entire chain groove. Oil and check the end sprocket for smooth, relatively free turning. Compressed air is very useful for cleaning these parts. Reassemble bar and chain making sure the adjustment tang drops into one of the large holes--you may have to back off the adjustment several turns to make this work. Make sure the chain cuts toward you on the bottom run and install the clamp nuts/bolts finger tight. Adjust the chain until it pulls up to the bar and you can turn the chain by hand. Run a line of oil around the chain to pre-lube it. Tighten the clamp nuts and retest the tension again. If ok, start the engine and run for several minutes, then place the tip near some cardboard and run at speed for several moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Make sure the chain is fully sharpened then try a few cuts. It should cut smoothly without any undue pressure from you. Hope this helps!
