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: Echo cs-341 stalls out when cutting sideways

Make sure the fuel filter is indeed attached to the fuel line in the tank and pushed down to the bottom of the tank.

SOURCE: Poulan Pro 42cc Just Won't Cut It

The chain is directional, only cuts one way. If a new chain won't cut, it must be on backwards.

SOURCE: while cutting the chainsaw bogs down and stops

Check the air filter and the muffler if either are plugged up it will not run smooth. Carb hi and low screws are very sensitive so if you change them, only move them a little at a time.

SOURCE: My Homelite Ranger 16 inch chainsaw starts great

My 16" Ranger had the same problem. Here's how to fix it. Take off the top cover and the red side cover to acess the carburator. Take the top off the carb; there is a single screw that holds it on. Inside you will see a 10mm round indention. This is a final screen fuel filter. Mine had a layer of light brown dirt over the screen. Take a small screwdriver and carefully scrape the dirt off. You don't need to clean the carb any further or adjust the H and L settings or anything. Put it back together and it should run with no bogging. down.

The tip of blade will not come together or close.


if it is a hedge trimmer as per the catagory, get a new cutter bar or get a new hedge trimmer
probably from blunt cutters that tried to cut too thick branches
if it is secateurs then do as ray suggests

How can you buy just the saw for the 8" 2 in 1 pole saw.


after looking at reviews written on

Robert

Tried chain saw. Working on limbs about 12 ft above ground.
First limb about 3 inches diameter, Oak. Worked fine.
Second limb same size. Cutter slip off branch could not stop the saw from hitting ground. Broke case where it attaches to pole.
No parts, and no way to repair it as company had no idea what kind of cement/glue I could use. So one branch cost me $120.00.

Like Robert my saw hit the ground and busted in the same spot (this will happen to you sooner or later) and you can not get repair parts, its now a door stop.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight
Cons: Can Not Get Repair Parts
I am guessing you mean the entire cutting end of the saw too, I would get a new one either same model so you have a spare pole or find a another brand that definatly sells spare parts.
Ive never used a electric polesaw but have done alot of work with with longer petrol and shorter hydrolic polesaws, even top of the range they can be broken easily always keep the chain sharp, cut one branch at a time or small clumps on a hedge.
Commonly they get dropped cause they get really heavy extended a shoulder belt helps alot as do coffee breaks.
Or they get jammed in the branch being cut which can be really dangerous with a half cut branch, be ready to run.
Also never use from a ladder

How do i tighten the chain on a stihl 038av magnum?


Normally, a loose chain will enhance it's ability to jump off when trimming small branches.
When installing and/or adjusting a chain;
1) install the chain, bar, and cover, and install the cover nut loosely
2) support the 'nose' end of the bar with a block
3) tighten the chain until it touches the bottom of the bar,
and then tighen the adjuster 1/8 of a turn more.
*this will make the chain just a LITTLE snug
4) tighten the cover nut, and then by hand CAREFULLY rotate the chain.
If you cannot rotate by hand, it is too tight. re-adjsut
** This proceedure must be used on ANY brand chain saw.
Here is why.
If the bar nose is not lifted upon adjustment, when cutting,
the nose will move upward, the chain will have a 'droop' away
from the bar and appear to have loosened while cutting.
Any contact with a small branch will flip the chain off of the bar.
If you re-adjust it improperly, the same senerio will occur the next cut.

could be one of several reasons ,you could be running the chain too loose ,the bar could be excessivly worn or the drive sprocket in behind the clutch ,that drives the chain could be worn out. all i can say for certain is that , it is one of ,or a combination of those things an ex perienced eye would pick it straight away on seeing it "youdoit"

Noisy, blade seizes, used two hours


Sorry but there is no help for this equipment. Remington went bankrupt and i have not been able to get parts.
Plus they,in the past, considered this a throw away unit.
Sorry for the news.
Good Day.

Hedge trimmer not cutting


Try getting the blades sharpened. Also have them checked to see if they are tight together, sort of like a pair of scissors. If the screws holding the blades together are sloppy the blades can't cut.
