Check for burrs on pals attached to flywheel that would catch on pulley when trying to retract rope.

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

How do you fix the chain


Remove cover on the chain side of the saw. Loosen the two hex nuts that hold the bar onto the saw. You will need to loosen the tightener screw also. Place chain back onto the bar making sure the chain is positioned properly in the sprocket at the rear of the bar and just reverse the directions. Tighten the tightener screw until the chain is tightened leaving a little slack, then tighten the two hex nut. Replace the side cover. When you pull the chain down away from the bar, it should have just a bit of slack not tight. This allows the chain to turn without a lot of friction. I hope this helps.

How do i Tighten chain


Jo:
Unplug the saw.
Lay the saw on it's side so the chain and bar are up (lay it on 4X4 blocks or something similar so the motor housing doesn't make the saw rock back and forth) Loosen the two 1/2 or 9/16 nuts... don't take them off, just loosen them a turn or two. Look toward the saw where the bar comes out (the front of the housing where the blade comes out). You will see a small screw head. Turn the screw clockwise (as if you were tightening it) As you turn that screw, the chain will tighten. Put on some gloves and pull the chain around the bar (as if the saw was running, but you are the motor). The chain should move with a little resistance. Pinch the chain at the top-middle of the bar and pull the chain up away from the bar. the chain should pull away from the bar no more than 1/16 to 1/8 inch. If you look carefully between the bar and the chain, you'll see the dogs that run in the groove in the outside circumference of the bar. None of the dogs should be fully exposed when you pull up on the chain (in other words, None of the dogs should come completely out of the bar's chain groove when you pull up on the chain. Now, tighten the two nuts on the back of the bar. Snug them down good... if the bar slips on those two nuts, the chain will come off while you are cutting.

Good luck

Tighten chain


to tighten the chain on most saws you loosen the lock nuts on the cover that goes over the clutch and on the side of the bar where the bar meets the saw you will find a screw turn the screw until it tightens while pulling down on the chain in the center of the bar until you can see the bottom of the chain

Chainm has popped . How do I put back on?


On the right side of the saw, where the chain disappears into the housing, there should be one or two nuts. These are what hold the Bar and Chain retainer plate on. Remove these two nuts, and the plate, the Bar, and the Chain will come off.

Now, just to put the chain Back on to the Bar, all you have to do is to LOOSEN these two nuts, and either right between them, or NEAR them is a FLAT-HEADED SCREW. Turn this screw to either LOOSEN, (retract) the Bar, or EXTEND the Bar. So, retact the bar, which loosens the chain, put the chain back on the bar, slowly extend the bar, by turning the screw, so that the chain gets tighter, then tighten back up the two nuts.

The chain should have a small amount of slack in it when you are finished. If you tighten it up too much, then it won't freely move, and will prematurely wear out your bar.

Good Luck.

The pull cord will not retract back into the saw. When I tried to start the saw, I pulled the cord and now it did not retract back. It is all the way out and will not recoil.


When I have had this happen it means that you need to manually rewind the cord and put some additional tension on the take up pulley. To do this you'll have to open the saw up and untie the handle. Turn the pulley like one turn, put the rope back through the hole and tie the handle back on. All this is done while maintaining tension on the rope.

How do i put a chain on the chainsaw


Set out the chainsaw parts in front of you. Make sure the chain is facing the right way to cut wood; the teeth should be facing away from you when you are holding the chainsaw.

Secure the chain around the sprocket (a cog-type part found near the chain tension nipple) and align it along the grooves of the bar. You will see a hole for the chain-tension nipple on the end of the bar. Line these up so the nipple fits in the hole on the bar. Pull the chain to tighten it, using the screw to achieve the desired tension

Place the cover plate back on top of the bar and line up the cover-plate housing screws with their corresponding screw holes

Screw the cover-plate housing screws back in and tighten. Test the chain to make sure it spins freely when pulled.

Check the chain to make sure you can lift it about 1/4 inch, so it isn't too tight to spin while cutting wood

Chainsaw won't start


Time to get out your trusty tool kit. Remove the side cover assembly and look at the recoil assembly. You should see a pair of fingers that when you pull the cord move toward the center. If the fingers are there and not broken, make sure they move when you pull the cord. clean them if dirty or have foreign objects (like sawdust) around them. If the fingers are broken, replace them. You should be able to purchase them from your local saw shop.

Pull cord on chain saw will not retract.


Most of the rancher models are easy to look at. Take the four screws off that hold the starter cover on.When off have a look to see if the pulley is ok or one of the starter dogs(pawls) is jamed . If dogs ok take the screw out of the centre of pulley and remove it ,check for spring tension. if there is just be carful to leave sring in housing. look at spring if broken or out of shape renew it and rope.check for cracks in pulley. When renewing spring and rope get correct rope length and diameter. don't over tension new spring. hop this helps

I have the same model chainsaw with the same fault. The brake is not releasing when the brake handle is pulled right back. I can only run mine if the brake handle is pulled back to the main handle with a tyrap - defeats the object of the auto-brake completely. Design fault I reckon.
