On the front of the chainsaw under or on side the blade you will see a screw that is inside the cover. Loosen the one or two nuts that hold the cover and blade on just a little. Then turn the screw I talked about clockwise and you should feel the tension adjusting on the blade. If you do not you may have some broken pieces and further inspection is necessary.

How do I adjust the drive chain


You didn't tell us what brand/model of chain saw. This youtube video will give you the basics for an Echo brand chain saw, which I personally own. Most chain saws are very similar to adjust chain tension.

StarTrac NXT Chain Tensioning & Alignment Video


About This Video


Adjusting Chain Tension and Alignment on a StarTrac NXT


  • In this video, we show how to tension and align the chain and flywheel on a StarTrac NXT bike


  • First you see an example of a chain that is way too loose


  • To correct this loosen the flywheel bolt on both sides of the flywheel


  • Loosen the tension nut on the sprocket side of the bike and tighten the tension bolt until you get the proper deflection on the chain



    • A properly tensioned chain will have roughly 3/16" of deflection




  • Tighten the tension nut and the flywheel nut on both sides as shown in the video


Check the Alignment of the Chain and Sprockets after Making a Chain Tension Adjustment


  • Misaligned chains will look like they are walking from side to side where they enter and leave the sprockets



    • This can cause noise, premature wear, as well as making the chain look to be jumping from side to side during use




  • To correct this, loosen the flywheel nut on both sides of the flywheel, then loosen the tension nut and adjust the tension bolt to move the flywheel in the proper direction needed to align the chain with the flywheel sprocket, as seen in the video



    • Note: If you have already achieved proper tension of the chain, adjusting the tension nut on the opposite side from the sprocket will help to keep the same tension on the chain




  • Don't forget to check the chain tension after making an alignment adjustment

How do i tighten the chain please


Under the protective cover of the bar and chain on the motor are the nuts / bolts and chain tension adjustment screws.

Depending on model (you didn't include yours so generic instructions follow); removing the nuts / bolts that hold the cover in place will allow the bar and chain to be removed - or to adjust the chain tension on the bar with a long screw for that purpose. Once the tension is set with the adjustment screw it is locked into place when the cover is re-secured with the nuts / bolts.

If you need more specific help - please provide your make and model chainsaw.

Chain keeps poppin off


These are the instructions for adjusting the chain. They are taken directly from the manual available at http://ep.yimg.com/ty/cdn/razorama/e100e200e300manual.pdf

To adjust the chain:
1. Loosen the axle
2. Loosen the brake anchor (this is attached with the small bolt in the long slot on the left side of the rear fork)
3. Tighten the tension adjusters on the axle 1/8 to 1/4 turn to tension the chain. Tighten both adjusters the exact same amount to maintain the wheel alignment.
Note: this system of adjusters is common to motorcycles and BMX
bicycles so I your are not familiar with it, if you know anyone who is,
they would not have a problem adjusting it for you.
Chain tension: The chain should be "just not-quite snug" in other
words, not taut or sloppy loose. BE CAREFUL NOT TO ADJUST TOO TIGHT. The tensioning system can easily impart too much tension and snap the chain or bend the motor output shaft. Turn the adjusters 1/8 to 1/4 turn at a time and recheck the tension each time.
4. Once the tension is good, tighten the axle and brake anchor bolt. Test run the scooter. Readjust as needed.

How to adjust the tention on the roller catch


  • Locate the guide bar retaining nuts on the side of the motor that holds the bar. Use the guide bar retaining nut wrench to loosen the two bolts mounting the bar to the motor.

  • 2

    Locate the chain tensioning screw on the front of the motor housing near the guide bar. Turn the screw clockwise to increase tension and counterclockwise to release tension. Tighten the chain until the chain moves freely along the length of the guide bar, but is tight on the curves of the bar

    Tighten chain?


    Depending on the model, you adjust the chain tension using the screw that is located either between or below the two nuts that hold the sprocket/bar/chain cover. Loosen the nuts and turn the screw clockwise to tighten, counter-clockwise to loosen. Once you have the tension set, lift up on the bar from underneath and tighten the two nuts. Proper tension should show about half of the chain drive, and should only be done when cold. After 4 to 5 minutes of run time, stop the saw and check the tension again. A little heat in the bar/chain will cause it to loosen up. It will need re-adjusting.

    Chain comes off mcculloch electramac em250 chain saw


    Your chain is too loose or it is worn out. Adjust the tension on the chain. The chain should not hang away from the bar but should be loose enough that you can pull it away from the bar with not much effort. Adjust the tension until it is set correctly.

    I need to know how to adjust the chain tension


    The only way to adjust the "tension" of the chain is to remove links. You will need a chain breaker tool. Shift the bike into the biggest chain ring and the biggest cog of the cassette, then break the chain, leaving the pin partially in the link but far enough out that the chain separates. Now, pull the chain together so that the rear derailleur's arm is as horizontal as possible and aiming toward the crank. Break the appropriate link to connect the chain so the derailleur stays in that position and reattach the chain using the pin you left partially engaged.

    i hope this helps

    Chain tension


    Hi Sally, I guess you don't have the owners manual. It tells you how to adjust chain tension. If you look around near the motor side of the bar, you should see two nuts that hold a bracket tight against the bar and an adjustment screw or bolt or something to loosen or tighten the chain by moving the bar or making it longer or shorter. Adjust that so that the bar is as short as possible and put the chain back in place. Then tighten that feature till the chain is snug again and tighten the two nuts to hold the bar firmly.
