Remington(Power) is no longer in production. Some replacement parts cannot be found outside eBay.

You provide no model number, I tried an M30016 and found a "Guide Bar Retainer" available. Find your IPB here:
Type "YourModelNumber" into the "Search for your unit by Model:" window, then click search.
Click the “YourModelNumber” - Remington Electric Chain Saw "View Model" link.
Click “View Owners Manual” or "View Illustrated Parts Diagram" link.
Type "YourPartNumber" into the “Search for your parts by Part #:” window, then click search.

If "NLA" or "Back Ordered" try here:
Master Distributors

How do you tighten the chain

Well it kinda depends on the saw you have. But either way you have to losen the bolts on the side of the saw by the bar and look for a flat head screw either between them bolts or at the front of the saw, some were beside the bar and chain. turn till chain is tight but not to tight and then tighten side bolts. Now if you have an older saw the do the same thing with the bolts only on the bar there should be a slot for a flat head screw driver just turn till chain is tight and tighten the bolts back up...

I have a Craftsman 3.5 hp 16" Electric Chain Saw that I haven't used in year. Are their key steps to clean-it up operationally before I use it or start it?


I would first clean the saw... especially the chain drive area (remove the cover first and use compressed air if you have a compressor). Check the drive sprocket for excessive wear. Check the power cord for any damage. pull up on the chain at the middle of the bar to ensure the chain is not too loose or too tight (the chain should be able to be pulled up one eighth of an inch... no more. None of the dogs at the inside of the chain should come completely out of the slot in the bar. If the chain is too loose, adjust it by reinstalling the cover, ( When you put the cover on, make sure that the small nib on the chain tensioner fits in the small hole in the bar). loosen the two chain bar retention nuts and adjust the screw at the front of the main body next to the bar. When the adjustment is correct, tighten the chain bar retention nuts and check the chain tension again. If you have a chain sharpener, now would be a dandy time to sharpen your chain.

Drive belt keeps falling off.

Dive Belt??? You mean CHAIN? Loosen the one or two bolts where the chain enters the body of the saw. They are right on the outside of the saw. Then, in front of the bolts, near the BAR, there will be a Bar-Tensioner screw. It is usually a flat-head. Turn this screw to extend the bar, thereby tightening the chain. Then, retighten the bolts. Leave the chain a little bit loose, because as you use the saw, it will heat up, and the chain will get too tight, resulting in premature bar wear.

Need manual for remington electric chain saw 1,5 hp 14in blade like to know how to tighten loose blade.

There is a slide bolt on the side of all chain saws that allow tightning of the chain. You loosen this bolt and slide the chain bar forward until you can just slide a dime under the chain and the bar. It may take a couple of adjustments as the chain stretches a little after it gets warmed up by the friction of the bar.

Change blade

all chain saws have a sprocket that the chain runs on this sprocket is what make the chain rotate on the bar. the bar is the long part that sticks out in front of the motor. you must remove the side cover of the saw to access the sprocket region of the saw. be sure the saw is unplugged and then remove side cover the bar is usually held in place by a couple of bolts. on gas saws these two bolts also hold the side cover in place and must be removed to replace the bar and chain. once you have removed the side cover look for bolts holding the bar in place. if you only want to change the chain then you may be able to only loosen the bolts or screws holding the bar in place.there should be a screw to adjust the bar forwards and backwards. this screw put tension on the chain so when you put a new chain on turning the screw will proberly tension the chain /do not overtighten the chain.
also be sure you put the new chain and blade on the same as the old one that comes off trying to cut with a chain that is on backward does not work. last note if you are replacing the blade because the old one is dull take the saw to a saw shop they can sharpen the exsisting chain and save you money.

Replacing Remington Electric chain saw blade

Where the bar meets the body of the saw there is an adjustment lug that will either push the bar outward tightening the chain or may be retracted allowing slack in the chain. When backed off (loosened) sufficiently, the chain may be removed for replacement. In order to use this feature, however, there are two bolts that secure the bar to the body that must be loosened prior to any adjustment and tightened bach up after making adjustments to the chain. The above will be enough to remove and replae the chain. If you are taking off the bar (that the chain runs on), you will need to remove the two bolts that were just loosened for the chain adjustment (above).

The chain on my Remington electric saw keeps jumping the sprocket. Solution? Thanks.

Depending to what model you have, the Sprocket cover tab (located on the round part of the sprocket cover) isn’t inserted into the saw body tab slot. Or your cahin is not tensioned properly. According to the manufacturer... "The adjusting block on the adjusting screw isn’t inserted into the adjusting hole on the guide bar. Reinstall and align the sprocket cover by first removing the sprocket cover from the saw. Turn tensioning screw on the sprocket cover counter-clockwise until it stops. Pull guide bar away from saw body to remove slack from chain. Insert sprocket cover tab into saw body tab slot and lower sprocket cover into guide bar bolt. Finger tighten guide bar nut onto guide bar bolt. Slowly push guide bar toward saw body until adjusting block on the adjusting screw drops into round adjusting hole on the guide bar. Securely tighten guide bar nut after properly tensioning saw chain." If these tips do not work, you may need a new chain. You can order an new chain on-line at I hope this helps you!
