Loosen the two nuts that hold the chain cover on. Once they are just loose, then use a flat blade screw driver to turn the slot that you see right next to the base of the chain. Once the chain is tight, retighten the two nuts.

Brand new RYOBI RCS3535CA 35cc Petrol Chainsaw. Chain came off the guide after only cutting a couple of branches. Refitted the chain but chain doesn't run. The chain is on the drive sprocket. What could be...


With chainsaws once you refit teh chain to the sprocket (it runs one way only) and the guides are sitting in the groove in the bar. The bar needs to be pushed so there is very little flex in the chain and then the nuts that hold the bar on should be tightened. If the chain is loose it will not get driven properly and it will jump off the bar. Also if oil is not lubricating the chain it will heat up quickly, stretch and jump off the bar. If in doubt - take it to your local chainsaw mechanic for checking and a demonstration.

Chainsaw starts great, but chain wont go


When you tighten the two side nuts, make sure you haven't jammed the chain on the gear. The chain must move freely(by hand) while tightening and when at proper adjustment

What size file do i use for a Ryobi chainsaw model PCN4545 to sharpen the chain


The standard chain file should fit it. It is about 3/16 dia. I found the dremel to work 10 times better, they have a little stone bit just for chains. Eventually, you have to take it in for sharpening, it will set all the teeth the same.

Ryobi 540A need manual runs slow/ chain too tight?


Actually, I own one of these battery operated Ryobi chain saws too. It is normal for the saw to run slow. Remember it is battery powered, not gas, so its not going to be a high rpm saw. Be patient whit it, and you'll get about 4-6 cuts per battery. I take mine camping. It sure is nice not having to listen to a two-stroke while relaxing in the woods! Dont plan on cutting lots of stuff, either, or you'll burn up the motor. This thing works great for very mild workloads.

My first chainsaw...am seeking general advice on product use etc


Ok to get correct tension on chain, basically loosen it a little until the chain on the underside of the bar is hanging a little... Now start tightening it up again. Basically you want the chain (the main part of each link) to be just touching the the underside of the bar. This will give correct tension... Note that chain does expand as it heats up so it may loose tension... so this is perhaps best done when the saw and chain has warmed a little. Also, new chain will stretch a little naturally so check tension each tme you use the saw.

If you do not know hoe to sharpen a chain properly, it is best to get someone else to sharpen it, or buy a new chain... Eventually all chains will need to be replaced because they can only be sharpened so many times before the cutting teeth become too small to work effectively or safely.

As for oil, if it is an electric chain saw, you only need chain/bar oil. Any good name branded bar/chain oil designed for chainsaws will work well.

Please rate my solution on FixYa!
Thanks.
