Remove the chain, then see if it will turn over by hand. Does it have a chain-brake??? Frankster016

SOURCE: doesn't cut even with new chain

If it is a new chain...are you sure it is not on backwards??? The points on the chain should be pointing away from you when holding the saw.

SOURCE: chainsaw chain will not tighten on the guide bar

The two nuts on the bolts for the chain bar, need to be loosened.

Then the tension screw is tightened by turning it Clockwise. (To the Right)

If the chain doesn't tighten,

1.Insure that the nuts are loose enough, so that the chain bar may slide.

2.Insure that the tension adjusting screw does not have stripped threads, nor the threaded part of the case it screws through.

SOURCE: The chain is not moving on Poulan 4018 Wild Thing

I think you are saying the centrifugal clutch does not engage. It should not at idle. Did you rev it up a little and it still not engage? There is a clutch face on sprung weights that should expand and turn the clutch drum above idle. Please see the “Handle, Chassis & Bar Assembly” detail for clutch illustrations.

A 2375 has an outboard clutch (the chain is between the engine and clutch drum).
2375 Type 7 (may not be your saw)
Use this as a guide to remove the clutch and inspect the parts:
R² Drive Link Outboard Clutch by

  1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed. Poulan (Craftsman, Jonsered, Husky) clutch removal tool part number 530031112 if needed, is under $5 from many sources,
  2. There are metal piston stops available, when square (almost never) with the piston top these work well, if not square they have been known to punch through the piston. I suggest a length of starter cord or nylon rope be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and damage the piston as it rises.
  3. Everyone I have ever removed had a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).

A 4018 has an inboard clutch (only the drive sprocket extends into the clutch cover). Do this first then use the outboard procedure to remove the remaining clutch pieces.
PP4018 Type 2 (may not be your saw)

The C-clips tend to fly when being removed. Please wear eye protection and exercise care.

If these are not your saw it can be found here:

The chain keeps falling off my brand new Poulan sixteen inch blade chain saw

It is possible they gave you the wrong chain for the saw. I would take check the manufacture to see which chain you need then check the numbers on your chain. Other thing it could be is the washer on the clutch may be missing. Either way, it is a new saw, I would take it back.

Chain is coming off after 5 mins work

The chain has too much slack.
Look in the manual
The chain needs to be tightened so that there is only a small sagging of the chain on the bottom of the saw.
Looking down at the saw there is a round knob just behind the saw blade.
Make sure the saw chain is in the guides.
Turn the knob counter clockwise to loosen and then clockwise to tighten the saw chain.

Chainsaw Chain Keeps Coming Loose I bought a brand new husky saw 235 and the chain keeps coming loose its about an inch under the bar after bucks up 3-5 logs in a row, the oiler is working but im not sure...

No problem.Is because the chain get streched.So open the side of the chain saw where there is the adjust bolt.The chain plate holder has a groove long enough to adjust the chain.But do not do it too tight.When adjusting try to test it without power,just by move the chain with hands.

If you need more help come back.Post / thumbs / testimonial are welcome!

I can't find a replacement saw blade for my remington M30016aw saw

Are you aware RemingtonPower is no longer in production (name purchased by MTD)? I am not certain whether you need a bar or chain so I provide both. I ask you retrace my steps to verify the part numbers I supply.
A link to an OM for your saw follows:
A parts listing is near the end of the manual. Items 2 (bar, pn EL16SB if 16" $22.99) and 3 (chain, 16SC if 16" $17.99) apply.
Both are available here: (authorized parts supplier)
Please use the phone and a credit card to protect yourself should problems arise; get the name of your service rep.

Please count the drive links (the part that fits in the bar groove) and verify there are 58 (16" chain).
You can likely take your existing chain to a local chainsaw seller/mechanic where it can be duplicated cheaper in about 5 minutes.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.
Thank You for using FixYa.

Husqvarna 235e will not stay running

Take the saw back for warranty service. We have a Husky #435 that had starting problems when new last year--warranty service replaced the ignition module the first trip, then a little later, they replaced the carburetor--it has worked very well since. I suspect that Husqvarna has had problems with our ethanol blended fuels. Hope this helps!

My husky 359 will start and run okay but stops after 5 - 10 mins of cutting and will not start again unless you use the choke, sometimes will not start again at all. I have replaced the fuel, spark plug...

Your description seems to imply improper fuel tank venting. Remove the fuel cap, then replace and try restart. If it now runs for another similar period, troubleshoot the vent. If no improvement, then check the fuel filter, fuel lines, and carburetor fasteners for tightness including the mounting fasteners to the cylinder. Does the primer bulb appear to be able to pull new fuel in when this problem occurs? Does the engine seem to be overheating? You may be having problems with the internals of the carburetor--it could be necessary to dismantle, clean and reassemble. Check especially the diaphragm in the lower section and the fuel metering valve that it controls. Go to: for a 12 page article on Walbro brand carburetor theory and troubleshooting which applies to nearly every brand of carburetor used. Hope this helps!

When i try to do a horizontal cut my saw seems to bite in for a start, but then just runs free in the tree not taking a bite or drawing the saw in, this has also happened with 45% cuts, is this my own...

Sawing with a chainsaw is mostly 2 part, a sharp chain and good technique.

If your bar is straight, your chain is razor sharp and the oil reservoir full then it boils down to technique.

You cannot run a chainsaw through horizontally on a big tree, what will happen is half the time the tree's weight will begin to collapse upon the bar and pinch it in the tree and you will not be able to saw any further.

You will notice that when felling a tree the vertical cuts are always problem free because gravity pulls the off-cut away from the saw. With horizontal cuts fire your blade in at an angle, and in cut in the direction the tree (or whatever) is likly to fall. As you cut rock your blade to help it bite into the wood and resist jamming. If your chain jams do not keep on the gas for you will burn out the clutch.

For an awkard cut instead of feeding it right through cut towards the middle to create a notch, then cut from the other side, the weight of the tree will fall on the cut portion leaving your blade free to slice through.

Just think logically and make sure that the blade can feed through without getting pinched, this is well represented if you get a log and support both sides then cut vertically in the centre; it will get pinched imeediatly. Now cut from the underside and it will fly right through.

This is difficult to describe but plan your cuts and test it out.

Just got MCC4516F chainsaw.Used it for 30 mins. Stopped working. Chain brake does not engage or release. Chain does not move. Motor runs but will not engage to make blade move. Seems like chain brake...

You have obviously jammed or broken the chain on the inside of the motor. Take it to be repaired, or try reparing yourself by opening up the engine casing yourself.
