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!!

SOURCE: Ryobi 14 inch electric chainsaw won't cut with new chain

Hi Rossmac,

Both the smoke and it's lack of cutting ability are symptoms of the same problem. The Chain is dulled. Instead of cutting, it's just rubbing on the wood and heating up. It's also not a big deal to fix..

Your options are:

  • Replace the Chain
  • Have the Chain sharpened
  • Sharpen it yourself
To sharpen it yourself, you will need a narrow round file that will fit inside the Chain teeth. Each tooth has a two cutting edges, get the file a position that matches the tooths angle of attack. Don't over do, three to five swipes of the file should do it on each surface.

You will see they alternate directions. You may find it easier to do all the teeth in one direction (skipping every other tooth) then do the other direction. Up to you.

When you are done, check the level of your chain oil. Since it did get hot, you might manually oil the chain before trying out your handi-work.

Go cut some wood.
Mike

SOURCE: my ryobi chainsaw rcs 2040 keeps stopping but

RYOBI----- with the motor running at high revs the chain stops indicates that the sprocket behind the centrifugal clutch is worn out or the centrifugal clutch itself ,or the clutch shoes are worn out the way to tell is to remove the bar and chain and have alook where the chain was conected to the saw, i think you will see the sprocket is buggered and as that is attatched to the clutch drum that will have to be replaced along with clutch springs and shoes, i think you have been running the chain a bit too loose or not running it at realy high revs ,which is what they are designed to do ,cme back to me if you feel the need

No local Ryobi dealer; what other brand chains will fit my 18" Ryobi ?


Any saw service dealer can fit a chain to your saw. 'Oregon' saw makes bars/chains for about any saw made in the last 50 years or so. Just take the chain itself in to get a replacement. Good luck!

Where are the oiling ponts to the bar to the ryobi 16 inch petrol chainsaw?


Hi
It's Lisa?
On an electric chainsaw there usually aren't what you would call oiling points.Somewhere,probably on the rear or one side of the case will be a bulb.It's also the screw on cap for the oil reservoir.
You fill that up with chainsaw bar oil,and as you use the saw every few minutes push the bulb down 2-3 times and it applies oil to the chain and gear in the case.The chain transfers the oil to the bar.
If this helps,would you rate my post please?
Thanks Bob
By the way,if you give me your model number I can look for a manual somewhere.No promises though,Ryobi likes to sell their manuals rather than download them.
