SOURCE: POULAN CHAIN SAW BELT COMES OFF

Hi joeted3,
My name is Dennis and I am here to assist you with your problem.
Please don't be offended with this answer because it sounds so basic but it happens to us all when we are in a hurry. That's the key phrase "in a hurry" with no more information that is described I will venture a few possibilities.
1) If the chane came off and was replaced and the saw stalls when you try to cut it's likely that the chain was bent slightly when it came off and it's binding in the groove of the bar.
2) If the chain came off and it's not binding in the bar, runs smoothly and should cut like crazy but dosn't, look at the image of the chain on the plastic cover of the drive sprocket near the bar adjustment nuts and note the angle of the teeth displayed. The chain may be on backwards, don't tell anyone but it happens to us all when were in a hurry.
Glad to be of assistance. Please rate the solution because I can learn from your rating.
Thank you
DennisGladx

SOURCE: electric chain saw chain adjustment. How loose should it be?

the chain should not be sagging from bottom of bar.when you tighten the chain push the nose of saw up so that all of the slack is out of the chain.chain should snap back in the bar if you pull the chain up and let go.when i adjust a chain i push the saw forward to make the bar go up and stay there while i tighten the nuts.hope this helps, let me know

SOURCE: replacing Remington Electric chain saw blade

Where the bar meets the body of the saw there is an adjustment lug that will either push the bar outward tightening the chain or may be retracted allowing slack in the chain. When backed off (loosened) sufficiently, the chain may be removed for replacement. In order to use this feature, however, there are two bolts that secure the bar to the body that must be loosened prior to any adjustment and tightened bach up after making adjustments to the chain. The above will be enough to remove and replae the chain. If you are taking off the bar (that the chain runs on), you will need to remove the two bolts that were just loosened for the chain adjustment (above).

I think you are saying the centrifugal clutch does not engage. It should not at idle. Did you rev it up a little and it still not engage? There is a clutch face on sprung weights that should expand and turn the clutch drum above idle. Please see the “Handle, Chassis & Bar Assembly” detail for clutch illustrations.

A 2375 has an outboard clutch (the chain is between the engine and clutch drum).

Use this as a guide to remove the clutch and inspect the parts:
R² Drive Link Outboard Clutch by Drivelink.blogspot.com
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdqkIuVNUQc

  1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed. Poulan (Craftsman, Jonsered, Husky) clutch removal tool part number 530031112 if needed, is under $5 from many sources,
  2. There are metal piston stops available, when square (almost never) with the piston top these work well, if not square they have been known to punch through the piston. I suggest a length of starter cord or nylon rope be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and damage the piston as it rises.
  3. Everyone I have ever removed had a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).

A 4018 has an inboard clutch (only the drive sprocket extends into the clutch cover). Do this first then use the outboard procedure to remove the remaining clutch pieces.

The C-clips tend to fly when being removed. Please wear eye protection and exercise care.

The dash number of your serial number is the type.

I can't get the case back on the chain saw after chaning the blade the brake is to compressed how do i fix it?


There are a number of ways to do this, the easiest way is to remove the clutch and sprocket, the cover will then fit back on and you can use the handle on the saw to load it. the clutch is just spun onto the crank with a left hand thread, it can be jarred off against the compression of the saw.

Change blade


all chain saws have a sprocket that the chain runs on this sprocket is what make the chain rotate on the bar. the bar is the long part that sticks out in front of the motor. you must remove the side cover of the saw to access the sprocket region of the saw. be sure the saw is unplugged and then remove side cover the bar is usually held in place by a couple of bolts. on gas saws these two bolts also hold the side cover in place and must be removed to replace the bar and chain. once you have removed the side cover look for bolts holding the bar in place. if you only want to change the chain then you may be able to only loosen the bolts or screws holding the bar in place.there should be a screw to adjust the bar forwards and backwards. this screw put tension on the chain so when you put a new chain on turning the screw will proberly tension the chain /do not overtighten the chain.
also be sure you put the new chain and blade on the same as the old one that comes off trying to cut with a chain that is on backward does not work. last note if you are replacing the blade because the old one is dull take the saw to a saw shop they can sharpen the exsisting chain and save you money.

I have an Remington 3.25 (Peak Hp) 16"/40, 6 cm electric chain saw, And I have just a few questions 1.) Does it take oil/gas or just oil and if so what kind. 2.) How would I tighten the chain, its...


It uses oil only to lubricate the chain. The type of oil in not critical although special chain saw oil is available. If you use anything but chain saw blade oil, make sure that it is a light oil, both in viscosity and in colour because it is a total loss system and dark or dirty oil can become very messy. The chain adjustment is on the body at the end of the blade, it actually moves the blade in or out to set the chain tension. The chain should be tensioned that when it is pulled at the bottom, the guides of the chain should not quite come out of the slot in the blade. If the chain is too tight it overheats the blade and stretches the chain.
