I just had my Rem. EL-8 (Mod#107624-02, 3 HP 11.5Amp) quit, too. It was less than 2yrs old, had very low hours and no abuse. I pulled it apart and found that a motor brush was burned out (at the brush electrical lead; the braided wire connecting to the winding). Unfortunately, I checked with Master Distributors ( ) and the brush assembly is no longer available. (For a less than 2-year old saw!!) They do have some parts for Remington saws, however.

Premature burnout seems to be a function of some combination of:
- using a too-light gauge extension cord for the amperage of your tool / length of extension. You can find recommendations for proper minimum gauge on the web. (This shouldn't have been the problem in my case because I used a 12-ga. 25' extension.) See:
- running too hard (big wood) for too long. I admit this seems pretty subjective; if the saw is cutting, why quit, right? But it's probably important to ease up and not let it get too hot.
- poor saw design. (internal parts don't match the power/amperage involved.)

What's the best way to use my 16 in electric saw to cut off tree limbs?

This is somewhat subjective. Eveybody does it a little different.If you are cutting limbs from a tree, start an undercut about where you want the limb to fall free of the tree. Use the upper edge of the chain to cut it about a fourth of the way through. Then start from the top of the limb over where you made the undercut.

After cutting down a tree, my chain stopped or became jammed and now the chain is loosely hanging. How do I adjust the chain to get it back to working order?

Remove the cover on the chain side of the saw and loosen the bar and slide it out to take out the chain slack. leave a little slack to allow for free movement.

Good luck and be careful.

What type of oil is used in electric chiansaw

The oil to use for the chain is called BAR OIL and if there is anything that might be universal, it is BAR OIL. You can use BAR OIL on electric and non electric saws alike. Self sharpening and non-self shaprening chains. Any manufacturer. It is BAR OIL.

Do not use any other kind of oil in your saw. BAR OIL is particularly sticky and hangs on to the chain even while cutting the wood at high speed.

What type of oil do I use for a Remington Electric Pole Saw?

While Bar Chain oil will probably work, the owners manual (sitting in front of me) on page 9 says to "use SAE #30 motor oil". This is the owners manual for Models: M12510US, M15012US, M15014US, M15014AS, M30016US, M30016AS, M30016AW, M35016UW, M35016AW. Remington Electric Chain Saw
