I would first clean the saw... especially the chain drive area (remove the cover first and use compressed air if you have a compressor). Check the drive sprocket for excessive wear. Check the power cord for any damage. pull up on the chain at the middle of the bar to ensure the chain is not too loose or too tight (the chain should be able to be pulled up one eighth of an inch... no more. None of the dogs at the inside of the chain should come completely out of the slot in the bar. If the chain is too loose, adjust it by reinstalling the cover, ( When you put the cover on, make sure that the small nib on the chain tensioner fits in the small hole in the bar). loosen the two chain bar retention nuts and adjust the screw at the front of the main body next to the bar. When the adjustment is correct, tighten the chain bar retention nuts and check the chain tension again. If you have a chain sharpener, now would be a dandy time to sharpen your chain.

SOURCE: I have a craftsman 16" 36cc chain saw. Engine

First thing is make sure chain brake is not engaged is so equipped. Next make sure that chain tensensioner is not to tight to allow chain to rotate. I wouuld remove bar and chain from saw and spray both several times with WD-40 and work chain link by link until they all move freely.Clean and lube guide channel on bar and make sure that bar is not dented or badly rusted.If all else fails replace bar and chain. Good luck and thank you.

SOURCE: I own an 18" Craftsman

Most likely the saw was stored outside or in a humid enviroment causing moister to build up along the comutator and the brushes. You will need to take this apart and clean the armatures commutator were the brushes rides against and clean the bruses as well. Use 320 grit sand paper the a finer grade such as 400 to get is very smooth as new. Then try ir out. If that does not work check for corosion at all wiring connections especially the power switch

The Chain Came off. I put it back on but it no longer cuts. does th cain need to go on in a certain direction?


It sure does, the chain always turns in a clockwise direction as you look at the saw from the drive side, so the chain on the top of the bar should have the cutting edge facinf away from the saw.

My saw barely uses half of the oil tank with a tank of gas when new it used almost all of it and even sometimes ran out


1. clean bar & saw - checking oil holes, groove on bar; oil outlet on saw - may be partially blocked - a fine wire may assist with careful clearing.
2. if cleaned replace bar/chain and test for oil flow.
3. drain oil and check if there is a filter, clean/replace filter and clean out tank.
4. see step 2
5. If still not flowing - check for manual adjustment of oil pump.(May need to be advanced)
The next steps depend on your own abilities and experience as to whether you want to further investigate or approach a reputable dealer to see about repairing or replacing oil pump and or associated oil line(depends on your brand/model etc).

There is usually a sticker with a craftsman Model Number on it, often "358.Something". That number can be used to find an IPL and if you are lucky an OM here: Sears PartsDirect http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action Start at 1.5 CCW from lightly seated then tune for performance like this:
Carburetor Adjustment by Madsens.com
http://www.madsens1.com/saw%20carb%20tune.htm
CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; marred adjustments are difficult to impossible to set properly.
Clean the air filter; adjusting with a dirty filter can cause a run lean condition once cleaned and the saw run.
