Take the cover off the sprocket for the chain and loosen the adjusting screw so you can remove the bar. Remove the chain from around the bar. In the read of the bar there is usually one or two small holes less than 1/4th inch. This is where the oil injector shoots oil into the bar for oiling the chain. The hole can become plugged with sawdust thus stopping the flow of oil. Clean out this hole as well as the injector nozzle for the oil underneath the bar. Not a bad idea to run something slim all the way around the bar in the grove that the chain runs in. This will remove all the excess sawdust that can keep the oiler from working.

What type of GAS and OIL need for the chain saw?


Hi gjoun...
You will need "Chain and Bar" oil to lube the chain and bar. Special oil made just to lubricate the chain and bar as the chain is running.
For the engine you can use the low grade of gasoline...and 2 cycle oil.
Fuel mix...50 to 1 = 1pint of 2 cycle oil to 6 gallons of gasoline.

After adjusting. Chain and running saw. FOR A COUPLE OF MINUTES. THE CHAIN. GETS REAL TIGHT STALLING THE SAW


sounds like your chain oil-er is NOT working, pull bar and take a stiff feeler gage and go around the whole bar cleaning the groove out and then make sure the oil hole in bar is clean also because if hole going to bar groove is plugged you won't get oil to lube chain. fill with oil and start and run on piece of cardboard or similar to see if it is throwing oil off chain, if so you are good, if not you are looking at cleaning/and or replacing oil pump Good Luck

Chain oil tank full, feed channel behind guide plate clear, but no oil going to chain when running. This is a homelite 16.


There should be a oil adjusting screw on the bottom of your saw next to the bar beside the oil tank. Some models actually has the screw inside the tank. Drain the tank to make sure there isn't any debris clogging the hole where the oil feeds to the bar.

One way to check to see if the bar is oiling is:

1. Start the saw
2. Put a board, piece of cardboard or an uncolored old shirt in front of the bar
3. Press the trigger on the saw to allow the chain to circulate around the bar.
4. While keeping constant pressure on the trigger, look to see if there is a vertical line of oil on the piece of material you have placed on front of the bar. If the saw is oiling you will have a vertical line. If not adjust the oil set screw accordingly.

Problem mazanja verige


If you are asking about chain lubrication we use "Bar and Chain" oil (SAE30 with additives to make it adhere).
If your question is the fuel/oil ratio, it is 50:1 - 4 liters of premium fuel to 80 milliliters of quality 2-cycle oil.
If the saw is not oiling the bar and chain please reply below with model number (UT-something) below. Vso srečo.

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

Homelite chain saw --first time user--do you mix oil and gas--two compartments--is the first compartment for bar oil


In the compartment closest to the chainsaw bar, you need to fill this with chain and bar oil. Any good name brand will work fine.

In the other compartment you need to add a mix of petrol and oil in the ratio specified for your saw. If unsure, 25:1 petrol/oil ratio should be ok.

The chain on my chain saw is slack.


The adjusting screw is usually found on the right side of the saw close to the bar, near the bottom. You will need to loosen the two nuts on the side that hold the bar tight. Loosen them until the bar lifts up and down (about 1/2") with your finger.

There should be a combination spark plug wrench and screwdriver that came with your saw. If not, use a slot screwdriverto tighten the chain while you hold the bar up with two fingers.

When adjusted properly, there should be no hanging slack in the chain when it is warm. It should rest just against the bar so that you can grasp it with gloves on and pull it toward you.

When it is tightened thusly, tighten the two side nuts while holding the bar up with two fingers. If you don't tighten the two nuts enough, it will loosen and the chain will have slack again shortly.

Remember that the hotter the chain gets, the looser it will be. Make sure your chains is getting plenty of bar oil. Never use regular motor oil.

I have a homelite chain saw that the bar oil is not dispenseing


May be oil port on saw clogged. Remove side cover, remove bar and chain. Remove giude plate if equipped. Check to see if small oil hole on saw is open and clean. You can start the saw with side cover removed to see if oil is coming from oil hole or not. If it is coming from oil hole when running the problem is most likely dirty bar .If bar is dirty check to see that groove is clean and the oil hole along the edge of bar is clean also. The hole is at same end of bar that attaches to saw.
