The chain oiler injects oil into the rear of the bar where the cover mounts over the sprocket. Take the bar off and clean out the oiler hole. There is usually some buildup of sawdust in the hole. Clean out the grove that the chain guide runs in all the way around the bar. You can see the injector nozzle under where that bar was when you removed it. Sometimes there is an ajusting screw there to increase oil flow.

I have a McCulloch CS38EM Why is the auto oiler not producing oil to chain. The port seems to be clear.


There is a spiral ring that drives the oiler on the crankshaft. Sometimes that slips and no longer turns the oiler. You can move it back and put a few drops of thread locker on the shaft before you place the spiral in place.

I have a huscavarna 435 chainsaw and after running a few minutes the chain locks up


You may have the chain tensioner set a little too tight.

Additional things to check:
  • The sprocket on the end of the guide bar is greased, and turning smoothly.
  • The chain brake is working correctly (not dragging or only partially disengaging).
  • The guide bar is straight, not bent or twisted, burr free, and the groove the chain travels in hasn't been squeezed together.
  • The chain tension is set correctly.
  • The chain oiler is functioning correctly (and you have a sufficient amount and correct type of bar oil).
  • Chain is in good condition, and the correct one for the saw. Make sure all of the links flex smoothly.
  • Chain is sharp. A dull chain will put more pressure on the guide bar because the cutting teeth aren't digging into the wood efficiently (and usually a person pushes harder on the saw when the chain is getting dull).

Can the chain oiler be adjusted on a 141?


No adjustment possible.

But that can be good news when you got good oil as you can run a longer bar and chain up to 20" The shorter the bar the more oil present on the chain and bar during operation

The automatic chain oiler does not get oil to the chain. Yes, it has chain oil. The black tube to the top chamber at the bar, seems to be plugged and I cant get it off to clean it out. Thanks, Steve


I have never seen an automatic chain oiler that worked. Even new ones don't seem to work. Just pour a little used engine oil on the bar once in awhile like everyone else does.
In theory there is a small piston that rubs on an eccentric at the chain sprocket, and that sucks in oil and pushes it through a hole, into the center groove of the bar.
But if the piston is dry, it won't pump.
If the holes are clogged with sawdust, it won't work.

How to replace oil pump in Stihl 018 chainsaw.


The oiler is set in place to a depth premeasured and tough to duplicate without the proper tool. If you use a proper sized bolt 5mm about 200mm long. After threading in till it stops mark the depth with a marker. pull the bolt out and the oiler will be on the end of the bolt.

thread the new oiler on and reverse the procedure.

My recommendation is to see a local service dealer like www.arcolawn.com and purchase the speciality tools:
21 Assembly tool 1123 890 2200 Removing oil pump
22 - Puller 1130 893 1400
23 - Installer 1130 893 1500

After saying all that I would tell you that a dull chain is the number one cause of "oiler problems" because a dull chain will over heat and make it seem as if the chain has no oil.

Good luck
Joe

Can't seem to get my oiler to work properly. oil emerges when i run the saw with the bar removed, but chain is dry and hot when run put together.


Some saw manufactures design their oilers to only work with their bars. Are you running the mfg suggested or stock bar? Chain? Stihl Chain is designed to use 30% less oil because of oil groves cut into each drive link directed to the rivets. So if your running an aftermarket bar/chain, the oiling ports may not line up. Especially if it oils with no bar & chain

Chain binds saw dies saw runs fine with out bar chain on clutch bearing? help poluan 3416 16 inch 34cc


Is your chain oiler working? If you're using saw a lot and the oiler isn't working properly the chain will get hot and bind up especially if the chain is too tight. Tighten the chain so that you can squeeze it in the center of the bar, with your second and third finger on the sides of your fingers (not a very strong grip) and you should be able to almost pull the chain out of the bar guide but not quite. Clean the oiler hole in your bar where the chain oiler injects oil into the bar. You can also run your saw without a bar and chain and see if the oiler is pushing oil out of the injector.

It seems like the chain is not getting any oil earlier in the day the saw was fine. I had to replace the chain and started sawing on a tree and the chain just smoking and burning the wood. It does not look...


Are you using any oil in the oil resivour? The oil lubricates the chain on the bar. I would guess that you installed the chain backwards. If the chain moves freely on the bar it is getting lubrication. I have made that mistake before. check rotation and your new chain. Don't know what brand of chain saw you have, automatic oiler, manual oiler, ect. but would guess that the problem is with the chain itself. Hope it as simple as that.
