    Where is the oil leaking from and onto what ? You can remove the bar and chain by just removing 2 bolts.

    Make sure nothing is jammed up against oiler, or tank, and make sure the oil cap is tight and clean.

    Please let me know how it goes.

How to stop the bar chain oil leak


There should be an adjusting screw around the bar somewhere. Turn it anti clockwise until it stops and then just crack it one turn. If it still leaks too much then turn it down slightly.also try and store the saw on its side to stop the oil just coming out.

Leaking oil when not in use


There's an o ring on the bar mount. It seals the oil passage from the tank to the bar. It will leak there. The tank itself may have developed a crack that will leak. The rubber lines from the tank to the pump can leak if they are cracked ir gummy.

Why does my john deere chain saw leak a lot of bar oil after i get done running it?


There bar oil seal is not that great it wears out right away and leaks instead of squirting oil when you pump it.
Don't worry 80 % of all chain saw leak sooner or later. Just put oil when you use it then drain it when you store it.

240e chainsaw leaking bar oil


It's quite common, if it's only leaking a little it's not really worth the trouble chasing the leak down. Your saw will have an online manual which may detail disassembly. Mine leaks a touch but not enough to bother me.

My stihl ms390 chainsaw leaks bar oil, so i put a threaded plug in the hole, and when i get the plug far enough in, it impedes the oil flow to the bar.


Take the bar off and clean all the pieces and parts where the bar mates to the motor. Make sure the hole on the side of the bar, where the oil gets onto the chain drivers, is not plugged. Make sure there are no burrs, on the edge of the bar from chain wear, which will push the bar away from the chainsaw body leaving a gap for oil to leak. If your bar is worn, most bars can be flipped over and used either way. If it is made to be used in on either side it will have a hole for the oil to get into the bar on both sides. Alternating or flipping the bar will make it last a lot longer.
Something else to check is if your saw has a breather hole and if that is what is leaking or it is plugged and is not allowing the tank to breath. Not all saws have this feature.
When you store your saw it is best not to store it on its side with the bar hanging down as these position will cause more oil to leak.
Even if you have a perfect fit/seal, between saw and bar, oil will still leak if it is stored in a place with temperature fluctuations. This happens from the oil expands, when it warms up, creating pressure in the tank causing oil to leak out. I always put a piece of cloth on top of a plastic base to prevent seepage onto any surface. I run chainsaws professionally for over 35 years and they all will leak when stored in place with temperature changes. Some are worst than others. Hope this helped.

Leaks chain oil out while setting, not running


The oil inside the tank will expand and contract with heat and cold from where it is stored. It is good to check and see that there is nothing between the bar and the body of the saw which causes the two parts from having a good seal and leaking oil instead of having all the oil go into the bar channel. Take the side cover and bar off the chainsaw and clean where all these parts meet. Sometimes it will not leak as much. If you store a saw in a place that has temperature fluctuations some oil is always going to leak out. I've always stored mine in a plastic container with rags on the bottom.

Most chainsaw leak because they are stored in a place with varying temperatures which causes the oil to expand and contact. You only notice it when the oil expands and leaks out the bar. Try and clean between the bar and the body of the saw and file down any burrs on the edge of the bar by where the oil comes out. Sometimes the burrs get bad enough to leave a space which allows oil to leak out easier. Hope this helps.

Leaking bar oil when hot


As the oil gets hotter it becomes more viscous, so if there is a leak it will get worse, remove the bar and chain, drain the oil from the oil tank and re fill with fuel, this will leak out very quickly and should show you where it is coming from, you can then address the problem.
