You should have a wrench to fit the hex nut on the side where the bar is. Get a pair of gloves and loosen the nut, on the inside of the bar you will find a screw head that is the adjustment screw, while holding up on the tip of the bar tighten the screw and periodically roll the chain. Lift up on the chain until the bottom of the teeth just about show, release chain and lift up on bar again and SNUG hex nut again checking the chain as above, when satisfied that the teeth are just about exposed tighten the hex nut and roll the chain to ensure that it moves freely. That is it. Let me know if you need anymore help

Problem with the chain losing, i get 2 cuts and it is lose why


Your chain is getting loose because you are not putting the bar in the adjustment peg. On the front of your saw there is a flat headed screw that screw adjusts the tension on your chain . When you replaced your chain on the bar there was a hole in it down buy the two that hold the bar to the saw,that hole is the adjustment hole where you can adjust the tension on you saw.....

My chain keeps getting loose....is that normal?


On a new chain perhaps. One that has been in service for a while the stretch should be adjusted out. Not holding the nose of the bar up as you tighten the bar nuts is the usual cause of this malady.
Chain Adjustment
  1. Make sure the chain brake is off (gloves recommended).
  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 do not 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. HTH

I have an 18 inch bar and the chain has to be tightened every few minutes. I tighten the nuts against the bar as tight as I can but the bar must still be moving to loosing the chain. Do I need to add lock...


There is an adjusting pawl with a screw that does the tightening. The nuts only clamp the bar once the chain is tightened. The adjusting screw is in the plane of the bar. The pawl may have disengaged the bar or may have broken.

I installed a new chain, adjusted tension, and saw will not cut.


Look closely at your chain, I'll wager it is the opposite direction.

He does a few things wrong
Chain adjustment
  1. Make sure the chain brake is off (gloves will protest your fingers).
  2. If necessary, loosen the nuts that are clamping the guide bar in place (or whatever your saw uses to hold the side plate and bar on with). We don't need these really loose - just finger tight will do.
  3. Ease the tension until the chain is obviously loose.
  4. Using one hand, hold the nose of the bar up.
  5. Now, while holding the nose up, adjust the tension so that the chain just touches the underside of the bar.
  6. Continue holding the nose of the bar up & tighten up the side plate nuts / bolts / quick-release system.

Cannot tighten the chain bar


Make sure the bar is positioned on the bar adjusting pin before you tighten cover. Adjust tension with bar adjusting screw, then tighten bar bolts.
