Losen the bar mounting nut, then losen the chain tension adjustment screw until the chain can be reinstalled, then tighten the tension screw until the chain just sags 1/8" or so at the center of the bar then retighten the bar mounting nut.

You are going to have to loosen the chain tensioner, it's near the part of the bar where it joins the main body of the saw. You usually just have to slightly loosen the nut that holds the bar on and then turn the chain tensioning screw in the direction required to push the bar towards the main body of the saw just enough to slip the chain back on then tighten it carefully, just tight enough to keep the chain on but not so tight that the chain doesn't rotate freely.

I can not get the chain to fit on the 3/4hp garage door opener I purchased form Sears


There is typically an adjustment on the chain that allows you to tighten the chain as it stretches with time.

The adjuster should look like a piece of threaded rod that is in-line with the chain. It should have a nut on it that takes a 7/16" or 1/2" open-end wrench to tighten or loosen the chain.

Sometimes, the adjustment mechanism comes from the factory in a state that makes the chain too tight. Try loosening the adjuster until the chain will fit and then make final adjustments.

Because thus is a chain with a sprocket at the motor end and another sprocket at the door end, sometimes more slack in the chain is required to get it seated properly in both sprockets. A helper may be required to help you get the chain in both sprockets simultaneously without too much slack in the chain between sprockets, but with just enough slack to prevent binding.

Another thing at which you should take a look, is the armature in which the chain rides. This is typically in 2 or more pieces in the box, requiring the installer to slip one inside the other. Ensure that the joints are fully engaged, which would make the length of chain required a bit shorter.

The last thing you want to inspect is that the chain in installed to the inside of any chain guards. These are present, typically along the longer spans on the sides of the long arm, to ensure that if a chain breaks or becomes bound and pops off a sprocket (think of popping a bicycle chain when you were a kid), it will not fall to the ground, or hit your car or a person. If you inadvertently routed the chain to the outside of one or more of these guards, your chain will certainly be too short.

I hope this helps!

How to put the chain back on a 16" Poulan electric chain saw


its probably like the gas model. so you remove the 2 nuts holding on the side cover of the blade side, remove the cover and the blade and chain. To fit back, slacken the adjuster screw a little bit, or if fitting a new chain then a fair amount, as you have to be careful that the pin on the adjuster fits into the proper hole on the saw bar, as you fit back on the bar, of which you have already cleaned out the grooves. supporting the bar in the slackest position, fit on the chain, making sure that the cutting edge at the bottom is coming towards the motor. Then slide the bar and chain away from the motor to take up the slack, then fit back the metal guide in the original position, fit cover with the adjuster pin in its hole on the bar, and replace the 2 nuts almost tight but slack enough to use the adjuster to set the chain to cutting position..slightly sagging on the sprocket nose type, or snug on the solid nose type..then tighten the cover 2 nuts firmly but not excessively as that will damage the machine..NB the bar & chain depends on the adjuster, not on the nuts tightness to maintain tension

Install side cover on 455 rancher with chain break


Problem is you removed side cover with chain brake closed. You must open the chain brake to re-install the cover. You can do it with the handle. Put the side cover into position, put the handle into the fitting on the side cover. push the handle forward until you feel the "3" point connector engage. apply pressure to the handle and pull back until the side chain brake "Pops" open. Your Husqvarna dealer has a tool to open the chain brake if you are unable to get it open. Takes about 5 mins.

I have a Husqvara 550 chainsaw. After chain popped and I put it back on, the chain won't move. It's on the gear and everything. Is there a brake or something preventing the chain from mov


There will be a chain brake, grab the brake handle and pull it firmly back to the top handle, this should didd engage the brake, if the chain has de railed the drive lonks will have burs on them which will make it tight in the bar, you need to file all these burs off.

Installation of new chain on 16 " chain


Make sure the chainbrake ( if if fitted ) is off by pulling the hand guard fully back to the top handle, remove the securing nuts and remove the side cover, wind the chain adjuster back if it is in the crankcase, pull the bar fully back, now loop the loose chain off the tip of the bar and over the sprocket, re fit the new chain over the sprocket, and lay it around the guide bar, place the bar adjuster hole onto the adjuster pawl ( if it is in the crankcase ) refit the side cover, if the adjuster pawl is in the side cover make sure it fits into the hole in the bar, put the securing nuts back on finger tight, adjust the chain so as it fits snuggley around the bar, with a gloved hand pull the chain around the bar to make sure it is seated correctly, re adjust if required, lift the bar nose up and fully tighten the securing nuts, after the first ten minutes of use re check the chain tention as there will be an initial stretch.

Chain has come off how do i put it back on?


The chain drive links may well be damaged now, it may need a new chain, however,if it has a chainbrake make sure this is off by pulling the hand guard fully back to the top handle,wind the chain adjuster fully back, remove the the side cover nut and remove the side cover, push the guide bar fully back, loop the chain over the drive sprocket, and lay it into the guide bar rails ( the cutters on the top bar rail should face away from the saw ), refit the side cover, if the adjuster pawl is in the cover make sure it aligns with the hole in the guide bar, fit the bar nut finger tight, adjust the chain so as it fit snuggly all round the bar, with a gloved hand pull the chain around the bar to ensure it it is sitting in the sprocket and rails properly, re adjust the chain if it has come lose, now fully re tighten the bar nut. If you fit a new chain there will be an amount of initial stretch, so re tention after a few cuts.

How to change chain and sprockets


chain and sprockets are straight forward you will need a rear paddock stand to do it, first would be to break old chain off can use a chain breaker if you dont have one an angle grinder or one of those electric grinding stones i use one works fine so use it to split the chain ideally break the chain where the chain is joined ie the split link this link will have to different rivets in it than others and is easiest to break...then pop of the back wheel is only one nut holding on the axle so is easy enough to pop off an adjustable wrench or a spanner think the size is 27m or so but you will know which fits......the front sprocket is in behind the clutch casing so that has to come off and might need to take off the left fairing not a big deal either just a pain? the sprocket can be seen when casing is off front sprocket can be awkward to work around but im sure youll be grand as for .....the rear sprocket is very easy just 5 bolts holding it in place and very straight forward..... installation of sprockets is straight forward the chain then depends on your tools if you have chain breaker is very easy but the key to putting the chain back on is making sure the new link you put back in is right way round ie links to the front an that you hammer the tips down nice and flat this make take about 40 50 minutes with a punch and hammer again i could go into more detail but i dont know what tools ya have but you cant go massively wrong when taking the bike out for a run after just keep a check on the chain for any movement hope this helps

Take off chain


to remove the chain you are going to have to split it by grinding off the rivit link heads then it should just pop apart. replace with a new link or if fitting a new chain 1 should be supplied with it.
