Question about Remington Electric Chain Saw
The saw works well for a while then the chain jumps off the saw. Got the saw from my brother-in-law and I don't have an owner's manual.
Here is a link to instructions on installation of a chain... http://220.127.116.11/manuals/113556-01A.pdf.
Make sure that the chain has been properly tensioned. Sometimes if the guide bar nuts are not tighted securely the bar will notremain in adjustment. Verify that the guide bar bolts are hand tightened plus one full turn with a wrench. If it is has been properly tensioned, the sprocket cover tab (located on the round part of the sprocket cover) may not be inserted into the saw body tab slot. If you are still having problems you just may need a new chain. I suggest that you contact Master Parts at 800-446-1446 or online at www.masterparts.net. If you have the model number they may be able to help you with the owner's manual for your unit also. I hope this helps!

The chain must be adjusted so that pulling up on the chain you cannot see more than three guides. If the saw is really old you should invest in a new bar, chain and it its a gas model a new clutch.

My Chainsaw's Engine Does Not Start: If the engine will start at all, you might have a bad starter switch. Check to see that all connections to the starter switch are secure. Is the power cord cut or broken? Check to make sure that you have a proper power line connection. If all checks out except for the switch, go ahead and replace it. You may want to consider whether you are using the appropriate fuel mixture.
My Chainsaw Smokes: If there is smoke coming from the chain, it could be an indication that there is not enough lubrication. Without the proper lubrication, the chain and chain bar can become seriously damaged. Make sure there is oil in the reservoir. When you start the saw, the automatic oil pump should lubricate the chain and bar. To see if this is a problem, hold the saw tip over a light-colored surface, hit the throttle and look for oil spatters on the chain bar. If you see no oil splatters, turn the saw off. Remove the chain guide bar and see if the oil discharge slots are clogged with sawdust. Clean out the sawdust and restart the saw to check lubrication again.
The Chain Skips or Jumps: If the chain skips or jumps during operation, check the engine drive sprocket to make sure it is not worn. If you have a worn sprocket it will not allow the chain to sit properly. Also, check to make sure the chain tension is set correctly. Setting the chain tension is a part of continuous operation. However, a dull or damaged chain may also cause the skipping and jumping.
My Chainsaw Isn't Cutting Properly: If the saw cuts at the wrong angle or shoots out a lot of sawdust, you probably need to sharpen the chain. A dull chain can be very dangerous. It can cause a kickback or chain jump that might break the chain and release pieces that could harm to the operator. If your chain is very shiny, you need to examine each cutter for damage. Use a file to sharpen the cutters.
The Chain Continues to Move or Stops: If the chain continues to move while the engine idles then you should check to make sure the idle is not set too high. If it stops while cutting, see if the brake is engaged.
My Chainsaw Loses Power: If the saw loses power while operating, check to make sure all electrical connections are secure. Any break in current may cause the saw to decrease in power, stall or shut down altogether.
How to Sharpen Your Chainsaw: Once you feel the chainsaw start to "grab" or stop with more frequency, shut the machine down and begin sharpening procedures:
1. Find a good, flat surface to place the chainsaw on (clamping the saw in a vice for stability would be optimal). 2. Make sure that you have a sharpening file that matches the size of the teeth on your chain. 3. Next, you'll want to make sure the chain is clean and clear of any debris so that nothing interferes with the file or sharpening device. You should have some kind of degreasing detergent at the ready so that you can wipe the chain down and during the cleaning and debris-removal process, make sure there are no damaged or broken teeth on the chain. 4. Before sharpening, take a piece of chalk, a pencil, a crayon, etc., and mark the tooth on the chain where you begin...so you know where to end. 5. At this point, you're ready to start sharpening. Find the groove between the teeth (the little notch in front of the tooth...your file should fit right into it) and give about 3-5 good swipes of your file (if you have a good, sharp file, this should be sufficient). Make sure you use the same amount of swipes for every notch/groove so that you keep everything even. Also, try to use the same angle with each swipe; this will contribute to a smoother performance by your chainsaw. 6. Repeat this process one at a time until you have come back around to the tooth where you began. 7. Then, after one side is done, turn the saw around and repeat the process. Again, remember to use the same amount of swipes with the file every time, and try to keep the same angle; uniformity/consistency within the teeth of the chain is very important for evenness and smoothness. As a general rule, after about 12-or-so times sharpening, you will want to bring the chain into a power tool repair shop or a place that does chainsaw repair, for some professional sharpening. The pros will be able to grind the chain back into shape and get the angles perfect.
