Question about Remington Electric Chain Saw

1 Answer

How tight should the chain be? Seems too loose to me, but I think it is as tight as I can get it. It is a remington 14" chainsaw.

If a solid nose bar it needs to be slightly more slack. Judging by the number of requests for adjustment repair kits I suspect it could be beefier initially too.
In answer to your question, with a solid nose bar the chain at the center bottom should just touch. If sprocket nose touch plus 1/8 turn tighter.

    Hold the nose of the bar up while making adjustments and tightening the bar nuts else it will slacken quickly.

I changed the chainsaw chain on my Blue Max chainsaw. The kick-back seems to be locked

Bob take the chain off again and remember to tighten the tensioning bar so that the chain is slightly loose. Enough to pull a few cm of the bottom just to stop it being tight.

Chain came off remington chainsaw now will not run

If you can't move the chain around the bar it is too tight.Back off the tension.Put on some gloves and see if it will move. If it was so loose that it came off the driver links could have been damaged and you will need to replace the chain because the drivers have burs on the side of them and are to wide to slide in the grove of the bar

I have a Remington 14' Limb n' Trim electric chainsaw. There is an oil reservoir (I think - it has a little rubber cap) and I am not sure if it is for motor oil. If it is, what type of oil should I use?


The reservoir is for bar chain oil, which all chain saws require to allow the chain to operate smoothly and reduce heat build-up from friction.

Hope this helps.

The chain on the 16 in chain saw keep slipping. Seems the thumb screw will not stay tight? Who can check this and fix?

First thing I would do would be to loosen the thumb screw fully so the chain is as loose as you can get it Next, loosen the chain bar and pull it out as far as possible which will take up the slack in the chain itself. Re tighten the chain bar. Afterward, you can perform detailed adjustment on the chain by playing with the thumb screw.

This solution has always worked for me and my various chainsaws.

I need to know the chain size for my Remington 14" electric chainsaw, Model EL-1

50 drive links; 3/8 pitch; and 0.050 gauge if an original 14" bar your, choose your chain here:
Oregon Bar & Chain Selector
Input "Remington; EL-1; 14"; All; All; All"
The one installed is probably green (low chance of kickback), all of them will work provided it is the original bar.

14" Remington chain replacement

I input "Remington; EL-1; 14"; All; All; All" here:
Oregon Bar & Chain Selector
It returned "91VG050G, 91VX050G or 91VXL050G". Please read the triangular warning placards. The original chain is most likely green.

Column 4 says a 14" chain has 50 drive links (the part in the bar groove". Please count them, if you get a different number try a different length bar. The Oregon part number can be ordered on line or if given to a local merchant fabricated in their facility.

I have a Remington Electric Chain Saw and have lost the manual. Where can I get one? Model No. M15014US 14'' Bar 114731-01S Chain 114735-01S I have tried searching the Web for one and can't get a...
Enter M15014US (your saw) in the “Search for your unit by Model” window. You can find both an Operator's Manual and IPL. I recommend you download both.

Item 4 lists available bars for your saw, a 14" bar for your saw is pn 114731-01S, $17.85 if available.
Item 5 lists available chains for your saw, a 14" chain for your saw is pn 114735-01S updates to M14SC
, $12.95 if available. You can probably take your chain to a neighborhood chainsaw shop and have a replacement made cheaper.

Remington has ceased production and replacement parts are limited to what is on hand. HTH
