SOURCE: Ryobi 14 inch electric chainsaw won't cut with new chain

Hi Rossmac,

Both the smoke and it's lack of cutting ability are symptoms of the same problem. The Chain is dulled. Instead of cutting, it's just rubbing on the wood and heating up. It's also not a big deal to fix..

Your options are:

  • Replace the Chain
  • Have the Chain sharpened
  • Sharpen it yourself
To sharpen it yourself, you will need a narrow round file that will fit inside the Chain teeth. Each tooth has a two cutting edges, get the file a position that matches the tooths angle of attack. Don't over do, three to five swipes of the file should do it on each surface.

You will see they alternate directions. You may find it easier to do all the teeth in one direction (skipping every other tooth) then do the other direction. Up to you.

When you are done, check the level of your chain oil. Since it did get hot, you might manually oil the chain before trying out your handi-work.

Go cut some wood.
Mike

SOURCE: my ryobi chainsaw rcs 2040 keeps stopping but

RYOBI----- with the motor running at high revs the chain stops indicates that the sprocket behind the centrifugal clutch is worn out or the centrifugal clutch itself ,or the clutch shoes are worn out the way to tell is to remove the bar and chain and have alook where the chain was conected to the saw, i think you will see the sprocket is buggered and as that is attatched to the clutch drum that will have to be replaced along with clutch springs and shoes, i think you have been running the chain a bit too loose or not running it at realy high revs ,which is what they are designed to do ,cme back to me if you feel the need

SOURCE: what size file do i use for a Ryobi chainsaw model pcn4545

The standard chain file should fit it. It is about 3/16 dia. I found the dremel to work 10 times better, they have a little stone bit just for chains. Eventually, you have to take it in for sharpening, it will set all the teeth the same.

My Ryobi 10532 chainsaw chain will not turn. The chain lock is off, it is a new chain. I replaced the old chain as it caught in a stump and stopped turning


pull the chain clutch back towards the handle
it is not a chain lock but a clutch release that stops the chain from turning
pulling it back engages the clutch to drive it

I have a brand new ryobi c4618 chainsaw. only used couple times. well chain came off and i put it back on but it doesnt move. almost like brake on but its not. any ideas?


When the chain comes off it will damage the drive links ( burr the sides ) if the burrs are not removed the chain will be tight in the bar grove and stop it moving, you need to file the damaged drive links, or replace the chain

The chain jumps off all the time no manual supplied with it


There should be a bar adjustment screw or mechanism somewhere under the guardplate where the non-visible end of the chain is. This pushes the bar outward and tensions the chain so it is not slack and comes off.

My Ryobi chainsaw PCN 4545 overheated


Sawdust/dirt build-up helps cause this situation. Usually, the band is deformed so that it drags. The melted case parts may or may not need replacement, but will likely need trimming. The band usually does as it is difficult to remove the small bends in it. After repair, make sure the chain turns freely by hand. Set and reset the brake several times to make sure it works correctly. The clutch outer drum rarely deforms when this happens. Hope this helps!

The number you provided don't cross to an exploded parts list.
The drawing can be found here:

I advise you find an authorized repair facility for your own safety. HTH

Chain does n't rotate


Is the chain brake "on"?, can you pull the chain around the bar?

Is the drive sprocket teeth worn all the way through.
Does the engine high rev or is it loaded when you throtle up?
