SOURCE: chain tension

Hi Sally, I guess you don't have the owners manual. It tells you how to adjust chain tension. If you look around near the motor side of the bar, you should see two nuts that hold a bracket tight against the bar and an adjustment screw or bolt or something to loosen or tighten the chain by moving the bar or making it longer or shorter. Adjust that so that the bar is as short as possible and put the chain back in place. Then tighten that feature till the chain is snug again and tighten the two nuts to hold the bar firmly.

New bar and chain should do the trick. ONCE IT GETS A LITTLE DULL T BUILDS UP HEAT AND STRETCHES. Use a good quality case hardened chain they last longer and are well worth the extra money.

SOURCE: Chain moves while idle

Hello there. Regarding the bar oil, many loggers plan their work so that they are out of bar oil at the same time that they quit for the day because bar oil has a tendency to leak. Another method that has some success is to mix your bar oil with a heavier oil but the trade off might be less lube getting to the chain when you need it.

Regarding the chain moving in idle, this is another common problem. You can usually slow the idle down until the chain stops, as you indicated, but I too have had chain saws where I finally just decided to live with it and be extra attentive to what was going on.

SOURCE: How do you adjust chain tension?

Here is a link to instructions for EL-8 series saws ... http://www.desatech.com/pdf/115499-01_EL8_Series_Chain_Saw_Tension_Adjustment.pdf. For series LNT-2, LNT-3,EL-1, and EL-7 according to the manufacturer... "WARNING: The cutting edges on the chain are sharp. Protective gloves should be used when touching the chain. Unplug the chain saw from the power supply. Allow chain to cool. Loosen the guide bar nuts until they are finger tight. Ensure the adjusting block is in the adjustment hole in the guide bar. Turn the chain tensioning screw clockwise to increase tension. Turn the chain tensioning screw counterclockwise to decrease tension. Check for proper chain adjustment by pulling down on the chain at the bottom center of the guide bar. You should see no more than a ⅛ inch gap between the chain cutting links and the guide bar. The guide (or drive) links should not come out of the guide bar grooves. The chain should rotate freely around the guide bar. If it does not, chain tension should be decreased. When the chain is properly adjusted, tighten the guide bar nuts securely." On the M series if your chain keeps slipping off your sprocket... The Sprocket cover tab (located on the round part of the sprocket cover) isn’t inserted into the saw body tab slot. I hope this helps you!

Loosen the nuts on the cover so you can just move the bar up and down. Now find the tension screw. It will be on one side or the other of the bar. Take the slack out of the chain. If you turn the screw too far the chain will not move. Also hold the bar tip up while adjusting. With gloves on move the chain around the bar. If you can not move it the chain is too tight

Chain fell off and I can't get it back on.


Turn the saw off. Look for several nuts on the right side of the saw that hold the cover on and the blade to the saw. Loosen these nuts, and before taking the cover off, loosen the chain adjuster by turning it (usually a screw head on the same side, or on the front of the saw as you look down the blade towards the saw.) Loosening the chain adjuster moves a pin that goes into the bar (the part the chain rides around when operating) to push it away from the saw to tighten the chain when you are tightening it. Take the cover off, and put the chain around the sprocket at the back like a bicycle chain, and then while holding the bar (sometimes a partner helps) parallel to the saw and outward away from the front of the saw, align the bottom parts of the chain inside the bar guide slot all around the bar, holding just enough tension that it doesn't fall off the sprocket or get misaligned in the bar guide. Try moving the chain a little bit to make sure it is not binding on anything. If it doesn't move at all, make sure the chain brake is not on. Once it is moving smoothly, put the cover back on, and begin to hand tighten the nuts. Just before they begin to get tight, eyeball where the chain tensioner pin is in relation to the hole it is supposed to go in. Adjust the chain tensioner screw to move the pin towards the hole. When it pops in the hole, continue tightening the nuts by hand until tight. Now you and your partner can let go of the bar. Adjust the chain tensioner for the proper tension in the chain, not too loose, not to tight, refere to your manual. Finish tightening the cover nuts using the universal wrench to the specifications given in the owners manual.

How to remove chain from blade no bolts unde cap


If you have removed the bolts that hold the cover, and the chain is still tight on the bar, locate the chain tension screw and turn it to release tension on the chain. The screw drives the pin that fits into the hole on the bar. When you replace the chain, line up the pin and the hole, and ensure the chain is seated in the bar. Tighten the screw until the bar does not move and the chain does not fall off. Adjust to the normal tension for your saw and replace the cover.

    I cannot find my manual to my 18v cordless chainsaw ccs818. I need directions for putting the chain back on. I would like to download a copy of the manual.


    Your manual can be found here:

    http://www.blackanddecker.com/Manuals.aspx with pop-ups enabled then enter your model number
    or
    http://www.dewaltservicenet.com/documents/English/Instruction%20Manual/90560838,CCS818.pdf

    See the instructions for replacing the chain on page 11. It makes reference to the figures on page 6 so that you know exactly what to remove.

    Basically... loosen the bar allen screws. Remove the sprocket cover. Loosen the bar retaining bolts. Use a flat bladed screwdriver on the bar / chain tension screw to shorten the bar enough to install the chain. Then adjust the chain tensioner so that there is just a little slack in the chain at the bottom of bar between the drive sprocket and the bar. Tighten the bar retaining bolts install the cover / tighten all cover fasteners. (see details D and E page 6 of the 2nd link above.)

    The steps below are copied from the manual.... I can not undo the formatting and can not post the figures here due to size restrictions..

    Thanks for choosing FixYa,

    Replacing the Saw Chain

    CAUTION: Sharp chain. Always wear protective gloves when

    handling the chain. The chain is sharp and can cut you when it is

    not running.

    WARNING: Sharp moving chain. To prevent accidental

    operation, insure that battery is disconnected from the tool

    before performing the following operations. Failure to do this

    could result in serious personal injury.

    • Place the saw on a firm surface. Rotate the two allen head screws

    (11) counterclockwise with the wrench (13) provided as shown in

    figure E.

    • To remove the saw chain (9), rotate the tension adjustment screw

    (23) in the front of the housing using the flat screwdriver end of the

    wrench (13) as shown in figure F. Turning the screw

    counterclockwise allows the guide bar to recede and reduces the

    tension on the chain so that it may be removed.

    • Remove sprocket cover (10) and allen head screws (11).

    • Lift the worn saw chain (9) out of the groove in the guide bar (8).

    • Place new chain in groove of guide bar making sure saw teeth are

    facing correct direction by matching arrow on chain with graphic on

    housing shown in figure G.

    • Place the saw chain and guide bar assembly around the sprocket

    (19). Check to make sure that the slot (20) in the guide bar (8) is

    over the two location pins (21) shown in figure E and that the hole

    below the slot is located over the adjustment pin (22).

    • Replace sprocket cover (10) and thread allen head screws (11) in

    with wrench until snug, then back wrench off one full turn.

    • Pull bar nose up and keep it up as you adjust tension.

    • Rotate the tension adjustment screw (23) in the front of the housing

    clockwise to increase the chain tension as in Figure F.

    Follow instructions in "Adjusting Chain Tension" section.

    • While still holding the bar nose up, securely tighten the rear allen

    screw (11) first, then tighten the front allen screw.

    • When the chain is new check the tension frequently (after

    disconnecting battery) during the first 2 hours of use as a new chain

    stretches slightly.

    Adjusting Chain Tension

    CAUTION: Sharp chain. Always wear protective gloves when

    handling the chain. The chain is sharp and can cut you when it is

    not running.

    WARNING: Sharp moving chain. To prevent accidental

    operation, insure that battery is disconnected from the tool

    before performing the following operations. Failure to do this

    could result in serious personal injury.

    • With the saw still on a firm surface check the chain tension. The
    tension is correct when the chain snaps back after being pulled

    1/8 inch (3mm) away from the guide bar (8) with light force from the

    middle finger and thumb as shown in figure H. There should be no

    "sag" between the guide bar and the chain on the underside as

    shown in figure I.

    • To adjust saw chain tension, loosen the allen head screws (11).

    • Rotate the tension adjustment screw (23) in the front of the housing

    using the flat screwdriver end of the wrench (13) as shown in

    figure F.

    • Do not over-tension the chain as this will lead to excessive wear

    and will reduce the life of the bar and chain. Overtensioning also

    reduces the amount of cuts you will get per battery charge.

    • Once chain tension is correct, tighten allen head screws (11).

    • When the chain is new check the tension frequently (after

    disconnecting battery) during the first 2 hours of use as a new chain
    stretches slightly.

    How do I reattach chain after it slipped off


    Normal 0 This will be the basic instruction for most common saws. Check that the chain brake is in disengaged position by moving the front hand guard towards the front handle if the saw is equipped with a chain brake on the handle. Loosen the bar nuts on the clutch cover. Loosen tension screw or other adjuster (thumbscrew) to allow the bar to be moved toward the engine. Some saws have this tension adjustment built into the bar. This will provide enough slack in the chain to able to reinstall it. It may be necessary to remove the side cover to gain access to the clutch/gear assembly on the side of the engine if the chain also jumped the gear here. Remove the cover, inspect for any debris or other obstructions in this area. If none, replace the chain back over the drive gear and in the bar groove all the way around the bar. It may be necessary to turn the bar adjuster screw more to provide enough slack in the chain to do this. Once the chain is in place reinstall the cover and bar lock nuts. Snug up the nuts but do not tighten these. Turn the bar/chain adjuster screw to tighten the chain on the bar (take up slack). I usually tighten to a point where there is no slack between the chain and the bottom of the bar and I can still turn the chain easily around the bar by hand. With experience you will get the feel for this chain tension. Once the chain is properly tensioned, tighten the bar lock bolts/ nuts on the side cover. I hope this helps you out.

    Some Poulan Pros have an adjuster screw on the front of the engine case right beside the bar, some have a tool less adjuster on the clutch cover, and some have a slot in the bar for adjusting the chain tension.


    I hope this helps you out.

    POULAN CHAIN SAW MODEL 1420 ''Chain came off track


    Chain is probably stretched. SAFETY FIRST. Electric saw, make sure power is unplugged. Gas saw, make sure sparkplug wire is removed. Remove the cover where the bar is attached to the saw. U should see an adjustment screw for chain tension and one or more bar lockdown screws. Loosen the lockdown screws and turn the tension adjustment screw to permit the bar to slide back toward the motor. Put the chain back in the bar track all the way around. Adjust the tension screw to tighten chain enough you can't pull it out of the track at any spot. Slide the chain by hand at least one complete revolution feeling for any rough spots. If it moves freely, turn the tension screw enough to tighten the chain properly. Correct tension should allow you to pull the chain appx. 1/16 to 1/8 inch from the bar. Tighten the lockdown screws, replace the cover. Rotate chain by hand a couple of revolutions again to check for smoothness again before starting the saw.

    I can't find instructions for using the tooless chain tension


    Bar/chain tension is generally controlled by a small screw adjuster... Basically you slightly loosen the nuts that are holding the bar onto the chainsaw, then turning the chain tension adjustment screw, this physically moves the bar outward from the saw, or inward depending on which way you turn it... When tightening, the bar moves outward away fromt he saw, in effect making the bar length slightly "longer" in regards to its position against the drive mechanism. This results in the chain on the bar being "stretched" and tightened against the bar as a result.

    Hope that helps!
