Question about Ryobi Factory Reconditioned 18" 40cc 2-Cycle Gas Powered Chain Saw #ZRRY10532
Chain oiler not working
Had you provided the model number we could have provided a more complete answer. What little oil system routing detial there is resides on the IPL. It can be found here:
https://www.gardnerinc.com/recons/disclaimer-lg.php - Agree; Choose “Product Line”; “Select OEM” & “Select Catalog” both to “Homelite Consumer Products”. A drop down list appears; self explanatory from here.
The numbers Homelite & Ryobi use don't match the numbers everyone posts. A careful inspection of your saw should find something that matches.
Oil System Plugged.
Remove the clutch cover, bar and chain. Clean the oiler hole and channel. Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up. If yes reassemble your saw.
If no a blunted, hooked piece of wire can be used to pull the hose in the oil tank out. I recommend the filter be replaced. Work your way through the linkage cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at connections. If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (probably left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly. GL

Open cover where the chain goes over the sproket many times sawdust is impacted there and blocks the oil from depositing on chain
