Question about Remington Garden

1 Answer

Chain on remington ld1840aw is loose. Have tightened tension control to max, but chain is still about 2 inches in excess to bar. Had prior problem with chain coming off, but used tension control enough to place chain back on before tightening again.

    how are links removed? Initially tried this yesterday when chain fell off but could not remove a link to undo chain. Also, yesterday after I reduced the tension to place chain on with that method, there was no slack in chain after increasing the tension to original level. Hate to ask this way but are you sure the chain could become that loose this shortly, when it was tight at beginning of use today?

    it turned out to be the tension lever bolt was loose. Once I removed it, and then adjusted the piece over which the chain goes. I retightend and the saw is now working. The chain did not need links removed. I will mark this as solved by you in case you get credits for these. I do appreciate your time.

It's time to shorten the chain. You will need to move the chain adjustment all the way back, then take a couple links out of the chain to fit bar. Then you will have adjustment again as chain stretches.

    There is a 'master link' It looks a bit different than the rest. It has a extra 'plate' on top that you push off then the chain comes apart.

    Is the tensioner loosening up while operating?

    You must make sure that the tensioner is very tight, so it can't loosen while you operate. But, if you can no longer tighten and there is no more travel to take the slack out, you have to shorten chain.

How do you tighton the chain ?


Hi, first you must loosen the nuts that secure the bar. Then, you must find the tensioner screw which should be located on the opposite side of the bar. Use the appropriate screw driver to increase the tension on the chain. If you pull on the chain and it lifts about a quarter inch off the bar, then chain has the right tension. Re tighten the nuts that secure the bar. Good luck.

THE CHAIN SLIPPED OFF HOW DO YOU GET IT BACK ON 14 IN HUSQVARNA


There's two 1/2 inch nuts on the side of the cover from which the bar protrudes.
Remove these nuts and the cover -- leave the bar loosely in place.
Look for a slot-head chain-tensioning screw (may be on front under the bar, or perhaps on the side).
Turn this tensioning screw counter clockwise -- you will notice a pin moving back towards the drive clutch -- this pin fits into a hole on the bar and is used to set the chain tension by pushing the bar away from the drive clutch.
Once it is loosened, the bar can be pulled closer to the drive clutch, allowing you to fit the chain back onto the bar -- be careful to align the drive teeth on the chain into the slots on the drive clutch.
When the chain is back in place, turn the tensioning screw clockwise to tighten the chain onto the bar.
Replace the cover and put the nuts back on only finger-tight.
Tighten the chain some more using the tensioning screw.
Tighten the 1/2 inch nuts fully.
Note: The chain needs to be quite tight -- lift it by a link and be sure it does not come out all the way from the bar.

MY tension screw nut that locks the chain bar keeps bending on my Remington m30016aw. Any alternatives for that nut?


The nut may be cracked, like mine is. While I am trying to get a new one, I found I can still tighten the blade by laying the saw with the blade securing nuts up. Loosen the two nuts 1/2 turn. There is a small hole in the bar right near the case. Use a small screw driver placed in the hole and pry against the case to force the bar out and tighten the chain. While prying out on the bar, tighten the two nuts.

Loose chain


Hello David; good luck to you.
I went here and input model 107624-01, followed the directions and when possible selected the IPL. I found pn 108640-01, item 32, NLA @ Remington Power:
Remington.com
http://shoppingcart.msservicecompany.com/Default.aspx
Type "YourModelNumber" into the "Search for your unit by Model:" window, then click search.
Click the “YourModelNumber” - Remington Electric Chain Saw "View Model" link.
Click “View Owners Manual” or "View Illustrated Parts Diagram" link.
Type "YourPartNumber" into the “Search for your parts by Part #:” window, then click search.

Part Number 108640-01 is available here $13.99 - the picture is a complete assembly (cover, bar nuts, spacers and tensioner assembly).
PartsFor.com
http://www.partsfor.com/
If me I would use the phone number provided, ensure it includes all illustrated parts, order with a credit card (recover your investment much easier), get the name of the service person helping me and the name of her/his supervisor.
Please re-accomplish my steps to ensure I made no mistake, I do err occasionally (I swear on a stack of UCMJs covers have been NLA for quite a while).

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

Where does the chain anchor at the base of the saw bar on the Remington Model 106890-02? There is no apparent slot aside from the one on the bar.


It doesn't anchor it floats on a gear similar to this one.64ed23d.jpg Yours is an inboard clutch, the gear and chain are outside. This is an outboard clutch. The chain is between the clutch and engine. Chain orientation is the same and the adjustment procedure is similar.
c208594.gif Chain Adjustment
  1. Make sure the chain brake is off (gloves will protest your fingers).
  2. If necessary, loosen the bar nuts that are clamping the clutch cover in place (or whatever holds the clutch cover and bar on). They don't need these really loose - finger tight will do.
  3. Ease the tension adjustment until the chain is obviously loose.
  4. Using one hand, hold the nose of the bar up.
  5. While holding the nose up, adjust the tensioner so that the center of the chain just touches the underside of the bar, add a touch more.
  6. Continue holding the nose of the bar up & tighten up the bar nuts / bolts / quick-release system. HTH

I'd adjust the chain to just touch the bar bottom in the center (no extra). Remember to oil the bar before you cut.

How do you adjust chain tension? I have the 16" Remington electric chain saw, and the chain will not stay tight; it slips off the rear sprocket as soon as I try to use it. I don't feel everything is...


Here is a link to instructions for EL-8 series saws ... http://www.desatech.com/pdf/115499-01_EL8_Series_Chain_Saw_Tension_Adjustment.pdf. For series LNT-2, LNT-3,EL-1, and EL-7 according to the manufacturer... "WARNING: The cutting edges on the chain are sharp. Protective gloves should be used when touching the chain. Unplug the chain saw from the power supply. Allow chain to cool. Loosen the guide bar nuts until they are finger tight. Ensure the adjusting block is in the adjustment hole in the guide bar. Turn the chain tensioning screw clockwise to increase tension. Turn the chain tensioning screw counterclockwise to decrease tension. Check for proper chain adjustment by pulling down on the chain at the bottom center of the guide bar. You should see no more than a ⅛ inch gap between the chain cutting links and the guide bar. The guide (or drive) links should not come out of the guide bar grooves. The chain should rotate freely around the guide bar. If it does not, chain tension should be decreased. When the chain is properly adjusted, tighten the guide bar nuts securely." On the M series if your chain keeps slipping off your sprocket... The Sprocket cover tab (located on the round part of the sprocket cover) isn’t inserted into the saw body tab slot. I hope this helps you!
