Look carefully at the chain, remember, it cuts while pulling toward you on the bottom. The "track" is called a bar. The bar is adjustable using an adjuster on the front of the side cover or papallel with the bat on the front or rear side.

If you need more help, let me know.

You, as the only one of us who can see the bike, need to focus on what is or is not happening to define the problem better. Chains engage gears. If not, maybe the chain fell off. Try web searching "chain fell off" or "chain fell off autobike classic" or any common simple symptom to get a feel for the various reasons it happens.

My bicycles chain fell down,and I cant put in on again, Do you know some repairer who can repair it,around the Leytonstone or maybe near it? Many Thanks.

There's a trick to putting a chain back on a bike. First fit it onto the back wheel. Then hold it on the top of the front cog wheel (at the pedals) Get someone to lift the back of the bike so the wheel is off the ground. While the wheel is off the ground and you're holding the chain on the top of the front cog wheel turn the pedals forward, with your other hand, as when you're cycling and as it turns the chain will go on.

If you don't have someone to hold the back wheel up off the ground you could hold the chain on the bottom of the front cog wheel and turn the pedal backwards. The chain will still go on.

Cant get the chain oiler to pump oil. Can hear it pumping

If it has oil and is not pumping it, then it is probably blocked by a wood chip that fell in to the oil when you opened the cap.
You need to blow it out with air, backwards.

The chain came off the track. When I put it back on it doesn't cut well. It seems like it's just grinding into the wood instead of cutting.

For a chain to come off the track it must be MUCH too loose. The chain should run tight on the track and not hang free at all. As it has been running loose it may well be damaged - and therefore more dangerous than a healthy chain. If I were you, I'd get it checked out professionally. Don't keep trying to use it, as it will overheat and probably damage the track as well.

My chain saw (14 inch gas powered) would not

Modern chainsaws have the ability to run without turning the chain via the chain-brake. To set the brake the uppermost handle is pushed forward (toward the chain) and a firm snap should be heard and felt. To release the brake you pull the same handle back (towards the engine) and get the same "snap".
Concerning oil leakage: Bar/chain lube collects on the inside of the clutch cover and the sawdust mixes with it as you saw. A surprising amount of oil gets absorbed in the sawdust and later seeps back out when the saw is at rest. If the level of oil in the tank noticably drops after sitting overnight you may have a leak...otherwise it's normal.
As for a running chain that wont cut, it is common for chains to be installed backward and the unit still function perfectly (it just won't cut wood). See the proper chain orientation here. In this photo the chain travel is from left to right.

Door opener has problem opening door

Neither the chain nor the track require lubricant. The roller bearings, the hinges and the rail need lubricated from time to time.

On the rear of the motor unit you will find a control "up force." Increase this about a quarter turn.

Window wont roll up

Hi my name is Allen!

When the window falls down it is because the cable for the regulator and motor broke. The only fix is a new regulator/motor assembly from the dealership, or a good one from the junk yard if you can find one.

For further asistance you may reach me at FixYa!
