Unlike most bigger gasoline powered chainsaws, the Ryobi RCS2040 electric chainsaw does not have an oil adjuster. The oil pump on it is pretty much a simple mechanism that moves the oil on a "cork screw" -it rotates when your chainsaw runs, then your oil glides out of the reservoir into the tube towards the chain oiler. Amount of oil used will depend on two factors: 1.) Type of oil used. We sell winter grade and summer grade (but we are in Southern California, this doesn't make any difference). Our customers prefer the less tackier ones because it doesn't burn their bars under heavy use and it is less strain on the unit, however this drips out fast. 2.) Integrity of your oil line system, and the size of your reservoir (on your model, it IS small). Our rule of thumb here is that if it drips bar & chain oil, it's working. Well, that is unless it's leaking someplace else other than the bar oiler. Check the oil tube - it should be on the bottom of your chainsaw right on the same side as the oil tank.
Generally, speaking for both mid-sized electric and gas powered saws - 45 minutes of worth of cutting should have your bar and oil tank depleted already. Our contractor customers even have it opened way up.
I have multiple oil filled heaters similar to this and if it is leaking oil, any at all, it is dangerous and should be replaced or discarded.
These are closed systems and if there is oil leaking out, you could risk fire because there might not be enough oil covering the heating elements or other ways to catch fire.
These often go on super sale at local home stores so replacement should not be a big issue compared to the safety concern this poses. I threw mine out that had an oil leak so I speak from personal experience.
fast leaking oil? what is it you are trying to get help with, all you listed was fast leaking oil. is this a car or truck? what year,make model and engine size is the car or truck and in what area is the oil leaking?
a motor or transmission can leak oil for many areas. give me a little more info and i will try to help you locate and maybe repair this fast leaking oil problem.
Try running some of that high-mileage engine oil next time you do an oil change (it helps to swell engine seals slightly). If the problem clears up or is reduced, then it's likely that the rear main oil seal is starting to leak a little. The rubber seals will harden up and shrink a little with age. I would also powerwash the entire area clean, so that way any leak will be easier to monitor and pinpoint.
It could be the gear position switch neutral switch on the rear of the gearbox if oil dripping from rear
Could also be output shaft seal going
A good site for help from other oil head riders is ukgsr as the only way to find leak is to remove drive parts till you find leak
If the engine is not leaking anywhere, then your engine is burning the oil. If your bike is on high mileage then the oil rings are probably worn out otherwise would suggest running it on a dyno and check for leaks.
if it is not leaking then it is being burned by the engine, how many miles go by before you need to add oil?, if u are adding more than one quart every 1000 miles u have piston reing problems and or valve guide seal leaks. U won't see any smoke in most cases unless you are really going through the oil, like 1 quart every 300 miles.
