If the cable is rusty or otherwise binding it won't let the derailleur fall toward the smaller sprockets when the control is moved. Likewise, it may not even let you move the control in the direction that pulls the cable (bigger rings).

If you don't know much about the process I suggest you read this:

and take the bike to a Local Bike Shop for a look-see and maybe a tune-up.

You have to look if when you act on the shifting level it get hard to move or it is free, if free, probably the cable is broken.
Also check if the cable is not too loose, try to follow the cable track and move the level and see if the cable move with that, in that way probably can find where the cable is stuck or broken/loose.

If a single speed bike loosen the rear wheel and pull it back away from the pedals to get the chain tighter

If it has multi gears the arm hanging down has a ser screw that will need to be adjusted to align the chain to stop at the last gear

SOURCE: Need to adjust the gears on 18 speed Next

Since you don't specify the make or model a manual is not likely to be recommended for you. However, gears adjustments are sort of generic within limits. Try this link and find your shifters...

SOURCE: Chain Broke on a Huffy

if the bike has gears it does not have a master link, that is for single speed bikes only.

You will need an 8spd chain for your bike (1/2" x 3/32), these will fit any 6,7 or 8 spd bike. This requires a special tool to install ($8-$25), I would recommend taking into a bike shop and have them do it if you have no experience with this type of chain.

Side note: if you do own the tool, you can repair a broken chain for a temporary fix in the future, so may be worth buying. Check around, many bike shops offer basic repair classes and cover this.

How do i fix the rear sprocket on my huffy rock it bicycle


on all single speed bikes, it has been my experience, that chain tension is the reason for the chain to come off, try tightening it again, since this seems to keep happening the chain may be stretched out now and replacing the chain and getting it tight should solve the issue.

CHAIN KEEPS FALLING OFF ROADMASTER 26 " MEN'S BIKE


As "roadmaster' doesn't really narrow it down much perhaps a generic web search for "chain falls off bike" would work for you. YOU can see your bike. We can't even tell if its a single- or multi-speed.

How many links should the chain be for proper length on a 26" dual suspensin magna excitor 21 speed mountain bike


That is subject to the individual bike and the sizes of the chainrings and cassette cogs. No simple answer.

You COULD web surf for advice on "how to calculate chain size" on your own.

http://www.parktool.com/blog/repair-help/chain-length-sizing

If you avoid cross-chaining you can run a shorter chain. I never go more than one cog beyond the cassette center opposite my chosen front chainring.

My grandsons bike chain broke. Went to the store to buy a new chain. On the back of the package it said I needed a chain rivet extractor and of course, the store didn't carry that tool. How can I fix...


You should go to a bike shop, they can sell you a master link, and keep your own chain. Is your grandson's bike a 1 speed or a multi speed bike, if it is multi then you need a chain tool. Bike shops can do the job cheaper than you can buy the tool and it will be done right. Take the chain back to the store that didn't carry the tool.

Making the bike from a 18-speed to a 1 speed bike


single speed bikes have a single ratchet or fixed sprocket with no offset of the spokes, so you would probable need another rear wheel.
Another derailleur is probably simpler, try ebay
