All the saws I use that do not need the cover removed to tighten the chain. If the tightening parts are in the cover you can't adjust the tension with the cover off Other saws the pin is on the saw side To tighten the chain there is a pin that fits into a hole on the bar. Turn the adjusting device to move the bar forward to tighten the chain. If you get it too tight it will not move.

How do you fix the chain


Remove cover on the chain side of the saw. Loosen the two hex nuts that hold the bar onto the saw. You will need to loosen the tightener screw also. Place chain back onto the bar making sure the chain is positioned properly in the sprocket at the rear of the bar and just reverse the directions. Tighten the tightener screw until the chain is tightened leaving a little slack, then tighten the two hex nut. Replace the side cover. When you pull the chain down away from the bar, it should have just a bit of slack not tight. This allows the chain to turn without a lot of friction. I hope this helps.

Chain replacement is basically the same on all chainsaws. Loosen the side retaining nuts on the cover over the chain. Now loosen the chain tension screw ( usually a flat headed screw) at least 4 full turns. Put the saw on its side with the blade up. Remove those side cover nuts and the side cover - the blade should sag as you remove the nuts. push the blade towards the engine, paying attention to the direction of the teeth on the chain. remove the chain and clean out the junk from behind the chain around the sprocket and from the inside of the side cover. The emergency brake band is located inside the cover - make sure you clean out the debris from around the band, tensioner screw assembly, and cover. Re-install the new chain, orienting the teeth in the correct direction. Re-install the side cover, making sure the tensioner pin goes into the hole in the bar ( blade). Slightly tighten the side nuts, then re-tension the chain until you can just pull the teeth off the bar. tighten the nuts, being sure you don't over tighten them ( a little past snug is good). Run the saw for a few minutes ( doing 1 cut will speed this step along). Loosen the side cover nuts and re-tension the chain, the re-tighten the nuts.
Hope this helps!!

I have a 358351610 chain saw and need to find out how to remove the chain


Set the chain brake to off, then remove the fasteners on the right side cover where the chain drives from. This will release the bar which will slide back toward the engine and allow the chain to be removed. Note the direction of the cutting edge of the teeth. Clean everything including the two small oil passages that run from the large holes in the bar out to the chain groove on each edge of the bar. When refitting a new chain, back off on the chain adjustment screw (CCW) a few turns to allow the cover to fit to the bar properly. Fit the chain over the clutch sprocket, then insert the bar to the engine. Work the chain over the bar, then pull the bar outward to tighten the chain. Install the cover and the fasteners finger tight. Make sure the cover fits the bar properly. Tighten the chain adjuster CW so that the chain pulls up to the lower bar edge, but not so tight that you can't turn the chain by hand. Tighten the cover fasteners, then recheck the chain tension. The lower run of chain should be cutting as the chain moves toward the engine. Check the chain oiling by running the saw at speed with the bar tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments. Hope this helps!

Cannot move the chain by hand after the bar has been tightened.


First be sure the chain is on going in the right direction. When looking at the bottom of the bar the sharp tooth should be going towards the motor. When you put chain back on are the chain teeth properly engaged in the sprocket on the motor. Remove the cover again, check that teeth are in sprocket. Make sure pin from adjuster screw is engaged in the hole in the bar. Before you tighten the cover bolts, make sure chain will turn by hand. If not adjust the adjusting screw. Once adjusted, tighten cover bolts. Check again after tightening bar.

How to replace chain on eager ****** chainsaw


Remove the side cover on the saw Should be 2 nuts on studs

Either in the front between the bar and the saw body or in between the nuts on the side is a chain tightener. Use a flat bladed screwdriver to loosen the tightener and remove the chain from the drive and the bar. NOTE the direction of the chain teeth.
Replace with new or sharpened chain Reinstall the side cover Install the nuts DO NOT TIGHTEN just snug to contact Adjust chain to where you can just pull the chain free of the bar at the center of the bar length Tighten the nuts
Happy cutting!

ok i assume it is an electric chain saw? chain usually gets loose and can jump off clutch sprocket . to remedy this there should be atleast one nut or bolt sometimes two nuts or bolts depending on brand and model on the side cover where bar and chain inter the clutch area remove those and cover will lift off second there is a screw that faces front next to bar should be a regular slotted screw head loosenit all the way up till bar gets loose and remove bar by pulling away from saw this will come off veryeasy and chain shoouls fit on teeth of clutch sprocket and fit back onto bar tighten screw till chain tightens up on bar then replace cover and nuts on side cover but do not tighten the with one hand put tension on chain by pulling down on it while tightening screw till chain feels elastic snapping back to bar then toghten up nuts . chain should have no more then 1/4 inch slack around bar this is the correct tension youshould maintain.
