Hi,

A few suggestions for you to check:

1. Is the chain tensioned correctly (should be quite tight to the bar)

2. Is the guide bar damaged at all - should be un burred in the guide rail and the chain should fit into the groove and run smoothly. Try, with gloves on while the engine is off pulling the chain along the bar and check that there are no bumps or general issues

3. It is possible that some chips of wood have got into the guide on the bar and are causing this ... have a visual check, or run a small screwdriver in guide bar with chain off to ensure no gunk is in there

4. The chain could be damaged and not sitting properly in the guide

Hope this helps, if so please leave feedback .. if not let me know and I'll try and help some more!

Mcculloch MS 1415 electric chain saw throws chains


I had a saw that did that and found my blade the chain runs in was bent. Another problem was the groove the chain goes in had a gouge that did not look like much but was just enough to throw the chain. Also check the drive sprocket and make sure it lines up with the groove in the blade the chain runs in.I replaced the blade and its ok now.

CHAIN STRETCHS AS IT HEATS - KEEP CHAIN TIGHTENED CORRECTLY AND ALWAYS KEEP OIL IN OILER AND MAKE SURE IT OILS THE CHAIN. IF THIS DOESN'T FIX - REPLACE THE CHAIN. IF IT STILL HAPPENS THEN REPLACE BAR. WILL FAIL AGAIN WITHOUT OIL. POULAN WILL NOT HOLD UP WITHOUT CHAIN LUBRICATION. WORSE THAN OTHERS. IF CHAIN OR BAR OVERHEATED YOU'LL WORK ON IT MORE THAN YOU CUT. OIL IS THE KEY TO CUT WITH A POULAN!

Why chain will not stay on?


If the chain starts to get loose then you need to tighten it up or it will throw itself off the bar, also if you do not keep the chain tight and sharp the chain will be damaged when it is thrown off the bar.

I have a UT10519 and the chain keeps coming off bar. I noticed the inner guide is cut.


If the chain is showing signs of heavy wear, suggest replacing both the bar and the chain. Check the sprocket on the clutch hub for heavy wear on the teeth which will hasten wear on the chain teeth. Check chain oiling by running the saw tip near some cardboard at speed for a moment or two--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Tighten the chain until the lower run of chain just comes up to the bar, but not so tight that you can't turn the chain by hand. Hope this helps!

My chainsaw throws the chain off every couple of cuts wont stay on


Release the chain brake, then remove the bar and chain. Lay the chain out on a flat surface and look for damaged links, or sideways bending of the chain. Replace the chain if you find any such damage. Clean the engine surface where the bar fits to, then start the engine--oil should ooze out of the small port there. If ok, then clean the small oil passages that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each edge of the bar. Re-assemble the bar and new chain (if required)--tighten the chain adjuster until the chain just comes up to the lower bar, but not so tight that you can't turn the chain by hand. Tighten the bar mounting hardware and recheck the chain tension again. The chain teeth must be properly sharpened at a consistent angle to assure rapid cutting which keeps the chain heat down. With a new chain, recheck the tension every so often as the chain will initially stretch when used. Test the chain oiling by running the bar tip near some cardboard at speed for a moment or so--it should throw off a thin line of oil. There should be an oil-volume adjustment screw on the engine to achieve this. Check the sawdust coming from the cut--it should be small chips and curls if the teeth are sharp, but it will be a fine dust if they become dull. Hope this helps!

The chain keeps coming loose. I tighten it up and in just a few minutes it's loose again. What am I missing?


Make sure the bar/chain is being properly lubricated by running the tip at speed near some cardboard for a moment or two. It should throw off a thin line of oil. After adjusting the chain, make sure you can turn the chain by hand after tightening the bar clamp fasteners. You can judge whether the chain teeth are properly sharpened by examining the sawdust coming from the cut--if large chips, ok. If a fine dust-like material, the chain teeth need sharpening. Hope this helps!

Chain keeps losening up


Is the chain being properly oiled as it runs? Check by running the tip of the bar at speed near a piece of cardboard for several moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the cardboard. If nothing, remove the bar and chain, start the engine and observe the oil port in the side of the engine case. At speed, it should ooze out oil. If so, clean the bar drive-end holes that feed oil to the chain. Pay particular attention to the two small holes that run from the large holes out to the chain groove. If nothing comes out of the engine port, then an inspection of the pump, lines, and tank filter are in order. Make sure the chain is properly sharpened as a dull chain makes a lot of heat which allows the chain to stretch. You should not have to apply high force to the saw to get it to cut. Set chain tension so that the chain does not droop from the bar bottom, but turns easily by hand. Hope this helps!

I have a remington electric chain saw and the chain keeps coming off while I try to cut with it I keep the chain tight and keep the bar nut tight but it still seems to want to come off the sprocket anyone...


Your chain should not be tight ... only snug. If it keeps throwing the chain, your bar is not on correctly and/or the clutch needs replaced. Do not use old chain with a new clutch.
