There are usually two 7/16" nuts on the side of the chain saw. Loosen those a little first, then turn the screw to tighten the chain - not too tight or you'll stretch out the chain when you use it. Don't forget to re-tighten the two nuts before using the chainsaw.

I cant get my elec worx chainsaw to cut the chain turns but don't cut I'm 71 and a woman so be kind if I'm doing something wrong

If the chain is loose and doesn't snap back into the guide when pulled away, it will have to be tightened. If chain tension is OK, the saw may be waiting for you to put on your work gloves and lean on it to show it who's boss. You can do it!

Chain came off

Take off your chain guard, should be 2 bolts holding the chain bar in place. Then make sure there isnt another bolt or screw you missed, pop off cover put chain on, replace chain guard and tighten chain. It should be that simple

I have a powermatic 66 table saw. I removed the motor, to move the saw. when i reinstalled the motor, the blade has moved 5/16'' towards the fence.

Check to make sure the arbor set screw is not loose. The bearings may have shifted when you moved it. I recently rebuilt an old 66. Repositioning the bearings and tightening the set screw could be all it needs.

I have a Poulan ES 350 and need to know how to put chain back on and tighten.

Start by removing the cover securing nut, remove the side cover,wind the chain adjuster screw at the front of the saw anti clockwise, until the old chain becomes lose, pull the guide bar out and off the adjuster pawl, should now be able to remove the old chain, loop the new chain over the sprocket, and into the guide bar rails, make sure the cutting edge of the chain on the top of the bar is facing away from the saw ( the chain rotates clockwise as you look at it )make sure the bar is still located on the adjuster pawl, re fit the side cover, re fit the securing nut finger tight, now turn the adjuster screw with a flat blade screw driver, until the chain sits snugley in the bar rails, there should be no sagging on the bottom of the bar, now lift the tip of the bar and fully tighten the securing nut, run the saw for a couple of minutes, now re check the tention. The correct tention is so you can lift clear two of the drive teeth out from the top of the bar.

I need to find the nylon gear that is fused to the steel gear that drives the chain 1625 elec.poulan chainsaw. part name, number and picture.

An IPL for a Poulan 1625 (type 1) can be found here:
Click the green "Go" tab; Expand the "Illustrated Parts Lists";Click the "Chain Saw Assembly Type 1".
I think you want item 7 ($10.32 & shipping). The nut probably has a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it). Please let us know if this helped.
