Depending to what model you have, the Sprocket cover tab (located on the round part of the sprocket cover) isn’t inserted into the saw body tab slot. Or your cahin is not tensioned properly. According to the manufacturer... "The adjusting block on the adjusting screw isn’t inserted into the adjusting hole on the guide bar. Reinstall and align the sprocket cover by first removing the sprocket cover from the saw. Turn tensioning screw on the sprocket cover counter-clockwise until it stops. Pull guide bar away from saw body to remove slack from chain. Insert sprocket cover tab into saw body tab slot and lower sprocket cover into guide bar bolt. Finger tighten guide bar nut onto guide bar bolt. Slowly push guide bar toward saw body until adjusting block on the adjusting screw drops into round adjusting hole on the guide bar. Securely tighten guide bar nut after properly tensioning saw chain." If these tips do not work, you may need a new chain. You can order an new chain on-line at www.masterparts.net. I hope this helps you!

loosen of the cutter bar or remove it altogether
place the chain on the bar ( right way as it will not cut if on backwards) place teh chain over the drive sprocket and refit the bar
use the adjuster to move the bar out until you can pick the chain off the bar about 1/8 of an inch
any looser and it will jump off in operation

How to replace the chain?


Look on the side of the saw, where the blade/chain enter the plastic case. You will see a nut in there. Loosen the nut, then push the bar backwards towards the saw. It will put slack in the chain and you can pull it off the sprocket/clutch in there. (Use a screwdriver if you can't reach in there with your fingers) and wear gloves... even a dull chain can gouge you if your fingers slip. Once it's off the sprocket, then just pull the whole chain off. To install the new one, put it around the sprocket, make sure the chain guides are lined up with the groove in the bar and on the tip of the bar, then pull out on the bar (away from saw) to take the slack out of the chain. Holding the bar firmly to keep the tension on the chain, tighten the nut again. Bada-bing you're done. Should only take about 5 minutes to change it.

Motor turns --sprocket or chain doesn't


I'm assuming your kill switch is not engaged, the front handle should be pulled to the rear. It's normal to have some damage on the sprocket from loose chains catching on the corner so I doubt you need a new one. The motor turns? I'm assuming you're talking about the clutch, and if the clutch spins but the chain does not it sounds like your bar may be damaged or as you said the sprocket may need to be replaced if it's seriously been misused.

How do you adjust chain tension? I have the 16" Remington electric chain saw, and the chain will not stay tight; it slips off the rear sprocket as soon as I try to use it. I don't feel everything is...


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!

How do I get chain back on saw? And why does it keep coming off?


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.
