How do you fix the chain


Remove cover on the chain side of the saw. Loosen the two hex nuts that hold the bar onto the saw. You will need to loosen the tightener screw also. Place chain back onto the bar making sure the chain is positioned properly in the sprocket at the rear of the bar and just reverse the directions. Tighten the tightener screw until the chain is tightened leaving a little slack, then tighten the two hex nut. Replace the side cover. When you pull the chain down away from the bar, it should have just a bit of slack not tight. This allows the chain to turn without a lot of friction. I hope this helps.

HOW DO YOU ADJUST TENSION ON CHAIN FOR HOMELITE UT10519


Hi,

Turn the tightener till the chain in the center of the bar at the bottom just hangs down about a 1/8"....
this will be good... too tight and the chain will not turn...too loose and it will come off...
that 1/8" is usually great for any saw...

I lost my manual and need to change the chain on my homelite chainsaw... never had one of these before... stihl and husky are pretty straight forward... this one not so much...


Turn the chain brake off, then remove the side cover (back off the adjustment screw several turns first). Clean the oil ports in the rear of the bar and the area around the oil outlet port. Fit the chain to the sprocket, then work the bar into the chain and pull the bar outward to tighten the chain. Fit the cover back making sure the adjustment tang drops into the large hole in the bar. Run the mounting nuts up finger tight, adjust the chain so that it doesn't droop from the bar, but allows the chain to be turned by hand, then tighten the nuts and recheck chain tension. Hope this helps!

The chain on my chain saw is slack.


The adjusting screw is usually found on the right side of the saw close to the bar, near the bottom. You will need to loosen the two nuts on the side that hold the bar tight. Loosen them until the bar lifts up and down (about 1/2") with your finger.

There should be a combination spark plug wrench and screwdriver that came with your saw. If not, use a slot screwdriverto tighten the chain while you hold the bar up with two fingers.

When adjusted properly, there should be no hanging slack in the chain when it is warm. It should rest just against the bar so that you can grasp it with gloves on and pull it toward you.

When it is tightened thusly, tighten the two side nuts while holding the bar up with two fingers. If you don't tighten the two nuts enough, it will loosen and the chain will have slack again shortly.

Remember that the hotter the chain gets, the looser it will be. Make sure your chains is getting plenty of bar oil. Never use regular motor oil.
