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.

Part of the chain came off track


if it is a pole chain saw , and the chain came off, it is installed the same as any chain saw
undo the cover over the drive end , remove the blade and chain, loosen of the screw that adjusts the blade length
put the chain back on the blade , put the blade and chain back on the machine , replace the cover and do the nut up till it just touches the cover
adjust the screw until the chain is at a position where if you pull the chain off the bar the inside guide teeth are about halfway out of the bar guide
tighten up the cover nut

Review the new chain installation procedure to be sure it was looped over the drive gear correctly. Also, the bar may have readjusted itself after you applied tension and tightened the hardware.

Chain came off, how do put it back?


Remove the cover. Loosen the two bolts that hold the chainsaw bar. Slide the bar back (it has a long slot for adjustment) until the blade can be lifted out of the track and sprocket. To replace the blade slip it onto the sprocket and the bar. You must hold the bar level while replacing the blade. Be sure the blade fits into the track around the bar. Once in place double check the placement on the sprocket and pull the bar outward until all the slack is removed from the chain blade. Holding firmly, (it would help to have someone assisting) keep the pressure on the blade and bar while replacing the bolt nuts. Then replace the hood cover. Smile.

How do you put the chain back on the track of a Husqvqrna e series 235 chain saw.


You need to make sure the blade is not damaged. You need to release the chain tension screw, most cases; you turn in counter clock wise to release the tension rod. Do it in the reverse when you reinstall chain to tighten it back up to operating conditions.
