Misplaced the manual. Need to know what oil I should use for the oil lubrication.

The chain oil tank should have a non fling chain oil, the non fling addative is so the oil does not fly off the end of the bar and lubricates where most cutting is done.

Where can I find a replacement bar and chain for my saw?

Remove the bar and chain from the saw. Take these parts to a saw servicing dealer who can match the bar and chain. Be sure to clean the area where the bar mounts. Run the saw for a few moments--the oil port in the side of the case should ooze out oil. Install the bar first, then thread the chain onto the sprocket, then work it over the bar. Pull the bar out until the chain is fairly tight, then fit the cover, but leave the mounting nut(s) finger tight. Turn the chain adjuster until the chain doesn't droop from the bar, but still be able to turn the chain by hand. Tight the mounting nut(s) and recheck tension. Run the saw at full speed with the tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the cardboard. Hope this helps!

Please specify the chain (091375-02S) for the 16" DESA chain saw EL-8, so that I can purchase it at a local hardware store. Thank you,

I hope no expert will do as you ask. I will not! I will provide the necessary links and information so YOU can make an informed decision based on what you are given.
Replace Desa with Remington. The EL-8 is not listed, I think if you do a careful inspection of your saw you will find a model number 107624* or 170625* (*matters not). Both of these numbers input below provide the same 3 choices on the following table.

Oregon Bar & Chain Selector

The above results are for an original or equivalent 16" bar. Only you can determine your level of expertise,how much risk you are willing to assume and choose one of part numbers listed. Once you make your choice the Oregon part number can easily be converted to other chain manufacturers (if your local outlet does not handle Oregon). I suggest a few phone calls to save you time and gasoline. Given the Oregon part number and your assurance of a purchase, if my store, your chain would be waiting when you walked in the door.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa and Good Luck. HTH

Does it run on 30 weight oil or a mixture of gas and oil?

It is an electric chainsaw, you need bar oil. Your manual says use 30 weight non-detergent. That is what bar oil is, with a few additives to help keep it on the bar and chain. It can be purchased at home centers and hardware stores and is less expensive than most motor oils. HTH

What type of oil is used in electric chiansaw

The oil to use for the chain is called BAR OIL and if there is anything that might be universal, it is BAR OIL. You can use BAR OIL on electric and non electric saws alike. Self sharpening and non-self shaprening chains. Any manufacturer. It is BAR OIL.

Do not use any other kind of oil in your saw. BAR OIL is particularly sticky and hangs on to the chain even while cutting the wood at high speed.

The chain became dislodged. When I put it back on it is loose and sags. How do I tighten the chain? Thanks

You didn't say what kind of saw you have but they are all generally alike. This happened because the chain stretches when it gets warmed up and it also gets a slight amount of wear in the pins so it lengthens as it is used. There should be 1 or 2 nuts on the side cover over the drive sprocket that you need to loosen just so the bar is loose and there should be a screw on the inside of the bar that faces the tip of the bar. When you turn this screw it will adjust the bar outward which will then tighten the chain up. Tighten the nut or nuts back up with upward pressure on the bar. It should be almost snug when cold. Make sure you have bar oil in the oil tank to lubricate the chain or it will soon stretch and come off again. This can ruin your chain and they aren't cheap

What type of oil I use

The Remington manual for model 111409-01 states: "This Pole Saw requires lubrication only to prevent rust on the guide bar and saw chain. The saw chain provided is pre-lubricated at the factory. With each use of the Pole Saw apply a small amount of lubricating oil directly to the saw chain (see Figure 8). The oil will distribute itself around the chain and guide bar groove during use?preventing rust. We recommend using SAE #30 motor oil for lubrication and rust prevention."

Can't recall what fluid(s) to use.

The fuel is a combination of a good two cycle oil and regular gasoline at a 1:50 oil to gas ratio. Pour in half the gas first, add the oil, and put in the rest of the gas. It needs to be well mixed. (Do NOT use just motor oil)

Run a good bar oil, like Stihl bar oil in the oiler tank. Costs a tad more, but clings to the bar better than most.
