Well this one is a tough one , the mfg answer is too keep all your oil lines and caps new and in good condition , but we all know that's not gonna be very practical in real life , me of course if something is obvious or extreme then sure i'll fix it , but i'll also say most all my saws leak some amount of oil while at rest (and I got more than just a few here too) ,some more than others , so I keep them in saw cases and line them all with absorbent pads that are easy to replace, I have had some limited success in having a Non vented cap to screw on during storage , this works but is a pain to have to switch out just to use saw

SOURCE: cant find serial number on stihl chain saw ms 290

If the silver rating label is still on the safety brake lever, it should be on there. If not, look at teh housing to the left of the exhaust by the 'teeth' on the body, or on the housing below the exhaust. It is normally stamped into the plastic.

SOURCE: stripped bar stud

Many Sthil chainsaws have replaceable bar studs. The stud threads into the case. Go here: http://www.baileysonline.com/itemdetail.asp?item=QA+0000+953+6605&catID=407
look for part by model number, usually no more than a few dollars. Enjoy

SOURCE: My Stihl MS-180be chainsaw is leaking a small amount of gas

This saw has a fuel tank vent that could be leaking a small amount of fuel, or the fuel line coming out of the tank could be leaking. Fuel line replacement isn't complicated, you could try installing a new one. If it's the vent, odds are it's not enough to cause alarm........unless the vent line is cracked. In that event, you should replace the vent hose. Again, not a complicated repair.

SOURCE: Husqvarna 359 leaking chain oil

Remove the sprocket cover, bar, and chain. Find area where oil is discharged from case--is any part of the rubber seal damaged? Next, use compressed air to clean sawdust and dirt from oiler ports in rear of bar as well as the chain slot. Are you using motor oil instead of bar oil? Make sure there is nothing to prevent bar from making close contact with oiler port in case. Reassemble all parts and adjust chain tension.

I have a Stihl MS 290, runs great, but the chain keeps tightening it's self on it's own


That's an unusual problem, usually the opposite happens. After making sure the chain brake is off, loosen the two nuts that hold the bar. Be sure to hold the bar up when adjusting the tensioner screw and adjust until the chain is just snug, but not too tight. While still holding the bar up, tighten the two nuts firmly. Check to see that the chain can move freely by hand. Then start the saw and run the chain at speed with something in front of the nose to check for adequate lubrication. You should note a slight fine spray of oil on the object in front of the nose of the bar. Inadequate lubrication, a chain that is binding on the bar, or an overly tight chain can cause the bar to heat up and expand, further tightening the chain. A properly adjusted Stihl saw will use almost all of the chain oil in the reservoir for every tank of gas. Too much oil is better than too little. The oil feed may have to be adjusted for operating in temperature extremes. If operating in very hot conditions, be sure that the saw has not run out of chain oil. The oil feeds faster when hot.

Stihl saw leaking chain oil?


Chainsaws can become messy even if the oiler is working correctly. Check the oil level frequently during a cutting session. If frequent refills are necessary, the oiler may be defective

Ms 170 leaks bar chain oil out bottom, no oil on chain


Your clutch drum bearing has gone bad, letting the clutch drum to move around and cut into the oiler behind it, so now it just pumps the oil out that hole. You have to get that fixed to use the saw, otherwise you're going to cause catastrophic damage to the saw very soon.
