The blade on my McCulloch Electramac EM250-14 came off. How do I put it back on? Dan Enright

I am not familier with this machine, hoever the principle is the same for most machines, start by removeing the bar nut/nuts, remove the side cover, wind the chain adjuster screw fully back it may be in the saw or in the side cover, push the guide bar fully back, now loop the chain over the sprocket and lay it into the top of the guide bar, and around the tip, the cutting edge of the chain in the top of the guide bar should be facing away from the saw ( the chain rotates clockwise as you look at it ) replace the side cover, make sure the adjuster pawl is in the hole in the guide bar, assemble the nut/nuts finger tight, now adjust the bar so as the chain is touching all the way around the guide bar, with a gloved hand pull the chain around the bar manually to make sure it is properly on the sprocket, re tention the chain if required, lift the tip of the bar and fully tighten the bar nut/nuts, the chain should not sag on the bottom of the guide bar.

Chain slips

Your problem statement seems to be chopped off, but apparently, when you go to cut something, the chain just stops turning. Assuming that is so, remove the bar and chain, then wash out the interior of the clutch mechanism with spray carburetor cleaner. Let dry and re-assemble the bar and chain. Make sure the chain is being properly oiled by running the saw at speed with bar tip near some cardboard--it should leave thin line of oil after several moments. Make sure the chain teeth cut toward you on the bottom run of chain. Hope this helps!

Why my chain saw always cuts at an angle

a lot of people have this problem with a chain saw and cant get a strate cut, most of the time its down to them trying to force the saw through the wood and in doing this the saw cuts around corners as there pull is not square to the cut,, let the saw do the work, not you, if your pulling on the saw to make it cut well then it has a very dull or blunt blade,,,is there any side to side "rock" on the chain in this new bar? how have you sharpend it? dose the chain have the same pitch on both side's? are all the teeth cutting at the same depth? if its cutting around corners it could still be the chain pitch worn out, if so the chain is past its best as well, but most of the time its all down to how hard and how squarely your pulling on the blade when cutting,,,the first thing in logging to lurn is to cut squarely no easy task that! just dont force the saw to cut!! it will cut just as fast or faster without forseing it,, if all this still dont get you cutting right change the chain for a new one,,,the only hard work with a chain saw is holding it up to the tree and humping it around not cutting with it, thats the blade's job to do so the faster you try to make it cut the more out of true the cut go's as all your doing is bending the bar out of alinement,,all in all, its two hands for the job and a very gentle pressure on the saw, start the cut with the blade spinning and dont stop the blade in the wood, cut right through

Hi, my mcculloch chain saw is not cutting properly. it will only cut on a angle, not straight up and down. the saw needs to be turned15 degree's to the right so that it cuts. it's like this / not I. cant...

Use a file around the perimeter of the bar at about a 45° angle, both sides. Remove just enough metal to see where the file has been. I think you have a wire edge that is causing the bar to cut at an angle. Be careful it is sharp. If that is not it post back below. Good Luck. HTH

The chain locked up with the engine running. noticed no oil in the oil chamber. what needs to be done?

The bar and chain got very hot. Try this:
  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar) Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out. Pay attention to the screen or filter on the free end (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up.
  2. PUT ON GLOVES; completely remove the chain from the bar. Hold the bar horizontal and install the chain in the upper bar groove, (mark one of links) rotate the chain one complete revolution. If it rotates freely without catching or riding up in the groove you can reassemble your saw try it.
If my saw I would seriously consider replacing the bar and chain but I cannot see what damage has been done. HTH

20" poulan chain saw cuts at angle

You must have hit a nail or stone with the one side of the chain. When the chain gets duller on one side than the other is what makes a saw cut at a angle. Get the chain sharpened and it should cut straight again.

Chain keeps coming off

Normally, a loose chain will enhance it's ability to jump off when trimming small branches.
When installing and/or adjusting a chain;
1) install the chain, bar, and cover, and install the cover nut loosely
2) support the 'nose' end of the bar with a block
3) tighten the chain until it touches the bottom of the bar,
and then tighen the adjuster 1/8 of a turn more.
*this will make the chain just a LITTLE snug
4) tighten the cover nut, and then by hand CAREFULLY rotate the chain.
If you cannot rotate by hand, it is too tight. re-adjsut
** This proceedure must be used on ANY brand chain saw.
Here is why.
If the bar nose is not lifted upon adjustment, when cutting,
the nose will move upward, the chain will have a 'droop' away
from the bar and appear to have loosened while cutting.
Any contact with a small branch will flip the chain off of the bar.
If you re-adjust it improperly, the same senerio will occur the next cut.

The blade cuts part way through a log and then goes side ways. I took it off to see if it had a bend or something with the bar but the bar is straight and does not seem bent.

replace the bar - evidently one side of the bar is worn more that the other part of the rail. the chain twists and runs crooked onthe bar.
