Where do I put the wood chips in?

this depends on the type of appliance you are using A smoker or a charcoal barbecue will use chunks instead of chips so I'll assume you have some brand of gas broiler that does not have a drawer or cavity for wood chips engineered into the design of the appliance.

In this instance you can soak chip overnight and loosely wrap them in aluminum foil. Place the loosely wrapped chips over a burner on the radiant tray or briquette tray so the heat is directly on the wood chips.
Close the hood and keep the other burner off or low so the heat on the wood chips soaked overnight causes them so smoke and not char. You need the wood chips over the flames so they smoke.

The spocket at the end of the guide bar keeps on blocking up with bits of slinters of wood and it jams up after 3 or 4 cuts and it is all brand new can u help me please cheers chris

you shouldn't have a problem with chips stopping the nose sprocket. make sure the saw is oiling well and that if the nose is grease-able it is greased. If that's all OK then I would look at the nose sprocket itself and make sure it didn't get pinched

How do you burn the wood chips

The pre-soaked wood chips are placed in the cylindrical wood chip holder on the side of the unit and then inserted into the smoker above the wood chip tray. The wood chip tray must always be in place prior to loading the wood chip holder.

To further assist you, in case you have misplaced the Owner's Manual, I have included a link to it, that you can download and print for future reference. It also includes recipes.

To extend the use and longevity of this smoker, be sure to follow all the routine maintenance suggestions in the manual.

Hope this helped you to enjoy your smoker. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Cant get the chain oiler to pump oil. Can hear it pumping

If it has oil and is not pumping it, then it is probably blocked by a wood chip that fell in to the oil when you opened the cap.
You need to blow it out with air, backwards.

How do you remove the oil pan on 2001 grand prix

Remove the motor mount bolts on both sides. Using a jack & wood block, jack the engine high enough to allow the pan clearance enough for removal. Use wood blocks(4 by 4) at motor mounts & lower engine mounts onto the blocks. Lower & remove jack & block at jack. Remove pan bolts & carefully using a large pry bar or common screwdriver pry the pan away from engine . Good luck!
