The chain should not be sagging from bottom of bar.when you tighten the chain push the nose of saw up so that all of the slack is out of the chain.chain should snap back in the bar if you pull the chain up and let go.when i adjust a chain i push the saw forward to make the bar go up and stay there while i tighten the nuts.hope this helps, let me know

Mcculloch MS 1415 electric chain saw throws chains


I had a saw that did that and found my blade the chain runs in was bent. Another problem was the groove the chain goes in had a gouge that did not look like much but was just enough to throw the chain. Also check the drive sprocket and make sure it lines up with the groove in the blade the chain runs in.I replaced the blade and its ok now.

How to put the chain back on a 16" Poulan electric chain saw


its probably like the gas model. so you remove the 2 nuts holding on the side cover of the blade side, remove the cover and the blade and chain. To fit back, slacken the adjuster screw a little bit, or if fitting a new chain then a fair amount, as you have to be careful that the pin on the adjuster fits into the proper hole on the saw bar, as you fit back on the bar, of which you have already cleaned out the grooves. supporting the bar in the slackest position, fit on the chain, making sure that the cutting edge at the bottom is coming towards the motor. Then slide the bar and chain away from the motor to take up the slack, then fit back the metal guide in the original position, fit cover with the adjuster pin in its hole on the bar, and replace the 2 nuts almost tight but slack enough to use the adjuster to set the chain to cutting position..slightly sagging on the sprocket nose type, or snug on the solid nose type..then tighten the cover 2 nuts firmly but not excessively as that will damage the machine..NB the bar & chain depends on the adjuster, not on the nuts tightness to maintain tension

Need manual for remington electric chain saw 1,5 hp 14in blade like to know how to tighten loose blade.


There is a slide bolt on the side of all chain saws that allow tightning of the chain. You loosen this bolt and slide the chain bar forward until you can just slide a dime under the chain and the bar. It may take a couple of adjustments as the chain stretches a little after it gets warmed up by the friction of the bar.

How do I tighten the chain on my Remington 14 in. 2 hp electric chain saw? Have used tightening screw, does do anything. Loosened the blade bolts trying to move the blade out slightly. Doesn't work...


Mitch if you attempted what is in the manual, and it is not working we would have to see and touch the saw to determine what has failed. If you loosened the bar bolts before trying the adjuster and it did not work, I suggest a trip to a local saw shop.

Chain adjustment pages 1, 8 and 9.
This is from a Remington OM

Chain is off and I am not sure how to get the adjusting screw in


You don't need the adjusting screw, if it is missing, you can still run the saw. Get the chain straightened out on the blade, with the cover on if you can, keep the cover bolt loose, put the blade in a vise, pull on the saw and tighten the cover bolt at the same time, make sure the chain moves, as long as it is not dangling down real loose, you should be all set. My adj screw bit the dust years ago, so did the safety bar. Still works great.

14 inch electric chain saw throws chain off


If a new chain ::
make and model is important here, as are guide bar length
a particular chainsaw, may be available with 12,14,16,18,20,22,24,26 inch guide bar,
likewise different saws (even from different makers) use the same size of chain
a chain for this saw may be sold in a variety of lengths or
may be sold in the longest length only and require links removed to suit smaller bars.
back to the store, with the saw, for confirmation

If an old chain::
stretched way beyond safety, replace
