Turn the saw upside down, there is a flat head screw adjuster that is accessible from underneath (the bar side of the saw) it will have a + and - sign near it.

I have a Stihl MS 290, runs great, but the chain keeps tightening it's self on it's own


That's an unusual problem, usually the opposite happens. After making sure the chain brake is off, loosen the two nuts that hold the bar. Be sure to hold the bar up when adjusting the tensioner screw and adjust until the chain is just snug, but not too tight. While still holding the bar up, tighten the two nuts firmly. Check to see that the chain can move freely by hand. Then start the saw and run the chain at speed with something in front of the nose to check for adequate lubrication. You should note a slight fine spray of oil on the object in front of the nose of the bar. Inadequate lubrication, a chain that is binding on the bar, or an overly tight chain can cause the bar to heat up and expand, further tightening the chain. A properly adjusted Stihl saw will use almost all of the chain oil in the reservoir for every tank of gas. Too much oil is better than too little. The oil feed may have to be adjusted for operating in temperature extremes. If operating in very hot conditions, be sure that the saw has not run out of chain oil. The oil feeds faster when hot.

How do you start a STIHL MS460 chainsaw


I am a Stihl mechanic. The proper starting procedure is to set the switch to full choke. Pull the starter rope no more than three times.Now raise the switch up one notch and pull it till it starts. Stihl products will flood if pulled more than three times with the choke on. Thanks, George

Hold the trigger and move the lever on the left all the way down -you know what? if you can't figure out how to start a Pro saw like a 460, you shouldn't be using it at all.

Cannot find oil regulator on stihl 024


There is no oil "regulator" only an oiler with a screw that adjusts the flow, that is found below the saw, and is fit for a slotted screwdriver.

Dont no how to ajust the ioler for the bar oil uses a tank of oil to a half tank of fule burned


what brand saw? Stihl saws are made to run Stihl oil. If you are runnin other oil, the viscosity wont be the same as the pump is designed for, and the oiler may pump more then it should. The oil adjustment screw should be a single flat head set screw on the underside of your saw near the sprocket. Alot of saws are not equipped with an adjustable oiler. Professional saws and larger displacement saws will have the feature.

Where is the oil adjustment screw on the stihl 028 AV


Hi,

Most Stihl saw have the adjustment screw on the bottom of the saw. The ones I've seen have an E mark which the factory setting. Turn the screw clockwise to increase the oil and counterclockwise to decrease it.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

Too much oil is being delivered on the chain, how do I adjust the oiler on my Stihl 038av super?


This is Stihl's manual showing the proper adjustment for the oiler. Flip the saw on its side, chain and bar side up, and look for a flat head screw.

Clockwise rotation on any saw is more oil, and counterclockwise will be less oil.
