SOURCE: The chain on my chain saw is slack.

The adjusting screw is usually found on the right side of the saw close to the bar, near the bottom. You will need to loosen the two nuts on the side that hold the bar tight. Loosen them until the bar lifts up and down (about 1/2") with your finger.

There should be a combination spark plug wrench and screwdriver that came with your saw. If not, use a slot screwdriverto tighten the chain while you hold the bar up with two fingers.

When adjusted properly, there should be no hanging slack in the chain when it is warm. It should rest just against the bar so that you can grasp it with gloves on and pull it toward you.

When it is tightened thusly, tighten the two side nuts while holding the bar up with two fingers. If you don't tighten the two nuts enough, it will loosen and the chain will have slack again shortly.

Remember that the hotter the chain gets, the looser it will be. Make sure your chains is getting plenty of bar oil. Never use regular motor oil.

Is there bar oil in the tank? Oil pump and/or pickup tube in oil tank are usual suspects.

SOURCE: Chain keeps falling off bar afterwhen saw is

Reinstall the chain. Do NOT connect power. Mark one link (chalk, crayon, etc.) wear gloves and try to rotate the chain one complete revolution. Is this possible? No - remove the chain and remove burrs from the sides of the drive links with a flat file.
3893c9d.jpg An IPL for your saw can be found here:
Remington.com
http://shoppingcart.msservicecompany.com/Default.aspx
Enter "111409" in the "Search for your unit by Model #:" window. Click search. Click "View Model" Click "View Illustrated Parts Diagram"

Yes - inspect the sprocket gear (KEY NO. - 11) pn 111363-01 new pn 122520-01 NLA, is it deeply grooved or perhaps worn through?

I'm going to get smacked as I have so many times before. The only thing RemingtonPower is producing today is unhappy customers. Replacement parts are exhausted. we aren't affiliated and had nothing to do with their decision to stop production.

Burrs on the chain or a defective sprocket are the most likely causes of your problem. If the gear is bad, there are no replacement parts available and I cannot help you further except to recommend you purchase a name brand replacement. Select a company you think will have replacement parts when you need them sometime in the future.

Chain adjustment

  1. Make sure the chain brake is off (gloves will protest your fingers).
  2. If necessary, loosen the bar nuts that are clamping the clutch cover in place (or whatever holds the clutch cover and bar on). They don't need these really loose - finger tight will do.
  3. Ease the tension adjustment until the chain is obviously loose.
  4. Using one hand, hold the nose of the bar up.
  5. While holding the nose up, adjust the tensioner so that the center of the chain just touches the underside of the bar, add a touch more.
  6. Continue holding the nose of the bar up & tighten up the bar nuts / bolts / quick-release system.
Your rating of our help is the only payment we get for this service. I provided as much help as humanly possible. Punishing me for your disappointment with RemingtonPower isn't fair to me. I hope I answered your question. Thanks. A few kind words would be appreciated.

Here is a helpful link for the owners manual and maintenance guides. The chain should be tight, but still have some movement when you lift the chain from the guide, however the bottom links should not come out of the guide.

Hello cf:
I need your help to help you.
Please count the drive links on an existing chain and post back (below) with the number. I have to close this, to post a photo. We can continue if you just reply.

I will provide the correct bar size and a link where you can make a choice, because your saw is so old I cannot match it to anything currently on the Homelite site and I am not willing to recommend a chain without seeing your level of expertise.

You can also take an existing chain to a local saw shop where one can be fabricated in a few minutes.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa and Good Luck. HTH
