SOURCE: mcculloch em300s electric chain saw stopped oiling

This is a little complicated so I’m going in small steps.

Click “Illustrated Parts Diagrams ON LINE”
Click “Click Here for Parts Lookup”
Changes to “Select OEM” Window reads “Briggs & Stratton ▼” Click the arrow and select “McCulloch Power”
Click “Electric Chain Saws” The model number of your saw is probably on a tag affixed to the bottom. The tag also displays the serial number.
If it is a 300S the hyphen is the bar length.
I looked at the 300S-16 (same oiler parts as -14)

  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar) Clean the saw’s oiler hole and channel. Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up. If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Item 15 has a filter on the bottom check it first, insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). If good I’d look closely at item 17. I can’t get enough detail from the IPL but that is the logical culprit.
Oil systems on all Mac Electrics appear pretty basic. Good Luck

SOURCE: Chain not getting oil

Extremely difficult! If the oil pump or worm gear is defective it may be the most difficult saw to repair. This is the only saw I have seen with the oiler mounted behind the fly wheel.

Your basic model number is 600035. There are 11-, 21-, and 22- prefixes used with 600035s. There are also a ton of suffixes with the 600035s. I think the suffix is on your saw immediately after the basic model number somewhere (usually on bottom of older Macs along with the serial number. The dash of the serial on older Macs is the prefix). I must defer to you to find your exact IPL, here:
McCulloch IPLs

I chose this one as an example "22-600035-58" for an IPL
The "Powerhead Assembly" lists an oil pump (1) and a worm gear (10). These are the most common failure on most saws but Macs have many more hoses than most. There are oiler components on at least 2 different details. It appears the oil pump is on the starter side of the engine. and you may need to remove the fly wheel for access. I would examine every connection and perhaps try the "Kit Gear/Plunger Assembly" before trying to access the oil pump and gear.

Oil System Plugged.

  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar), if equipped with a sprocket nose ensure it rotates easily at least one complete revolution. Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out. Pay attention to the screen or filter on the free end (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up. If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Work your way through the linkage cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly.
If it does not oil on completion of 1 it is most likely a bad oiler or worm gear. Please see the IPL to aid in oiler component identification.

You can reply below with any questions. I hope you found this most helpful. Good Luck
If you opt to remove the fly wheel PLEASE reply to me first. I can probably save you a couple of headaches and may prevent component breakage.

SOURCE: i need to see a diagram where the chain oil feeder

Remove the rear case cover which exposes both tanks, the oil pump and the short coupling line that goes from the pump to the bracket that the bar assembly bolts to. If you remove the bar and chain, that exposes the side port that is coupled to the hole in the bar that distributes the oil to the chain. There is a screw in the case back near the bar that adjusts the oil volume. When the bar/chain is off, clean the side port on the engine, and start the engine. It should ooze out oil when running at moderate speed. Clean the oil passages in the bar end including the two small ports that go out to the chain groove on each side. After everything is back together, run the saw bar tip at speed near a piece of cardboard for several moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!

Why does my electramac leaks oil

The chain oil feed is a gravity feed and will continue to feed when you put the saw down. Empty the chain oil resoivour when the machine is being stored. or store it in a driptray.

Oil leak mcculloch electramac em250 ?

You have a cracked tank, or busted chain oiler. Will have to take apart to view the chain oiler , and check if oil is puddling just under the oil tank. There is some epoxy sealers, or gas tank stop leak material that can possibly repair the busted or leaking oil tank.

Chain oil leaking from oil cap. looks like it is on straight,

I recommend you replace the gasket in the cap. A manufacturer replacement part isn't absolutely necessary (nor cheap/easy to come by since McCulloch is no longer in business). Any number of items could be pressed into service to stop the leak my favorite is the foam material you'll find in the cap of a 1 gallon chain oil bottle. Chlorine bleach bottles use the same type of foam gasket. I;m sure there are plenty of other product out there that use them as well.

Hope this helps.

McCulloch 14" chain saw Model CS 38 EM It quit

Most often there is a dust-oil clog in the bottom of the bar slot which closes an oil passage between the bar slot and the hole drilled half way through the side of the bar. This provides a passage between the thin shim plate with the two bar bolt holes beside the bar and through to the oil tank or pump output. You can remove the bar and chain and punch out the blockage in the bar with a paper clip if the chain is removed. Make sure the wire can be pushed from the bar slot right through the side hole in the bar. A gravity feed chainsaw should leak right out into the slot of the shim plate, a button pumper should squirt out there with the bar removed. With a button pumper you may have a tiny check valve in the line or the push button to take apart, replace the spring or unstick the ball inside the check valve. This is why they went to the gravity feed oil system which just leaks in there and gets picked up by the bottom of the links as the chain races past the passage between the bar side hole and the chain slot.

Chain oil keeps leaking can I stop it ???

First, make sure you're using bar & chain oil, it's very thick and won't leak out like motor oils will. When you're done using the saw, store it with the blade side of the saw up. Not always convienent, but the oil will run away from the blade oil channels and not leak out.

I just bought my McCulloch Electric Saw Model MCC1514 yesterday (4-13-09)at Ace Hardware, Mesquite, NV. I used it for the first time today. I filled it with Chain, Bar, and Sprocket Oil. All of the oil...

If the fill plug for the oil was tight, and no oil was leaking out of it, then you need to return it to Ace, cause if it's leaking out of the drip hole or the case, it is a factory problem, not yours. Hope you don't have to drive too far. Rick
