SOURCE: tightening chain

with the electric makita you should make sure the bar is sitting on that oval slide piece on the saw. they should fit together so that the bar will sit flush against the clutch plate and saw. attach the cover with the nut and tighten just enough to hold the cover on. then turn the screw on the nose of the saw, next to the bar, and then tighten the nut the rest of the way. if there's slipping or the chain wont tighten you should inspect the bar to make sure it is sitting flush against the saw.

Crack the bar nuts loose then tighten the Bar adjuster screw. Once proper tension is achieved, re-tighten bar bolts.

SOURCE: The chain on my chain saw is slack.

The adjusting screw is usually found on the right side of the saw close to the bar, near the bottom. You will need to loosen the two nuts on the side that hold the bar tight. Loosen them until the bar lifts up and down (about 1/2") with your finger.

There should be a combination spark plug wrench and screwdriver that came with your saw. If not, use a slot screwdriverto tighten the chain while you hold the bar up with two fingers.

When adjusted properly, there should be no hanging slack in the chain when it is warm. It should rest just against the bar so that you can grasp it with gloves on and pull it toward you.

When it is tightened thusly, tighten the two side nuts while holding the bar up with two fingers. If you don't tighten the two nuts enough, it will loosen and the chain will have slack again shortly.

Remember that the hotter the chain gets, the looser it will be. Make sure your chains is getting plenty of bar oil. Never use regular motor oil.

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.

After you install bar,chain,and brake cover(tightened)the chain wont turn.


Tighten the adjusting screw with the two nuts loose but snugon the middle of the chain on the top of the bar. Tighten the chain screw until the chain is loose enough to raise the chain up about 1/2 inch then tighten the mounting nuts tight. Then see if it is ok.

How do I tighten chain after removing the cover


All the saws I use that do not need the cover removed to tighten the chain. If the tightening parts are in the cover you can't adjust the tension with the cover off Other saws the pin is on the saw side To tighten the chain there is a pin that fits into a hole on the bar. Turn the adjusting device to move the bar forward to tighten the chain. If you get it too tight it will not move.

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 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

How do you put a chain back onto a chainsaw


on one side of the saw are two nuts and a chain tightener screw. loosen the nuts but don't take them off. turn the tightening screw counter clockwise. the bar should slide backwards. the chain goes over the clutch disk and the tangs go into the bar groove. just keep pressing the tangs into the bar all the way to the tip and around the tip sprocket. now turn the adjustment screw clockwise which will tighten the chain. don't tighten it too much! leave a little "play" - tighten down the nuts. plug in the saw and start it. if the saw has a chain oiler press the oiler a few times. as you use the saw the chain will expand and loosen. loosen the nuts and tighten it again just a little.

How to tighten the chain on my saw?


Depending on the type of chain saw.....there should be a nut near the bar on the housing which by turning it you should be able to loosen and tighten the chain; sometimes the bar can be slid forward which tightens the chain. Depending on the age of the chain saw it might be time for a new one!

Unable to tighten chain .. too droopy.


There are usually two 7/16" nuts on the side of the chain saw. Loosen those a little first, then turn the screw to tighten the chain - not too tight or you'll stretch out the chain when you use it. Don't forget to re-tighten the two nuts before using the chainsaw.

Chain wont stay tight


Could be the correct nuts have been replaced with regular nuts. The original had a knurls on the nuts to hold in place. If they do not then you will have to do as bunnydawg says, use lock washers.
