Make sure the chain brake is released and back off the chain adjustment screw several turns. Remove the clamp nut(s) and the cover should just pull off. Hope this helps!

Bought a Homelite 14" electric chainsaw. After

I am not sure if you have figured out how to put the chain back on your saw or not, but it doesn't take long.
1. Remove the plastic yellow "T" shaped nut on the right side of the saw (towards the front of the motor housing)
2. Remove the black plastic housing that covers the rear section of the bar and chain
3. Place the chain back onto the bar making sure it is facing the correct direction.
4. Place the chain over the rear sprocket area
5. Turn the +/- yellow plastic knob (towards the back of the saw on the right side) in the - direction until the metal guide inside the plastic casing lines up with the hole in the chainsaw bar
6. Replace the black plastic housing and slightly tighten the yellow "T" shaped nut.
7. Now turn the +/- knob until the chain is tight. Once the chain is tight, turn the "T" nut until it is tight and you are ready to cut again.

Homelite chain saw model ut10522 engine starves

All late model saw engines (in the US at least) have special 'D' shaped jet screw heads that require a dealer-only special screwdriver. Check the fuel filter for plugging and the fuel lines for decay or other damage. If you feel the H jet setting is responsible, then you are stuck taking the saw to a servicing dealer for adjustment unless you are skilled at making such a tool yourself. Hope this helps!

Can i get instructions to download on how to change the chain on my homelite 33cc chainsaw with 14.35 chains

Got to and input your model number.
When servicing, use only identical Homelite
replacement parts. Use of any other parts may
create a hazard or cause product damage.
Always wear safety goggles or safety glasses
with side shields during power tool operation or
when blowing dust. If operation is dusty, also
wear a dust mask.
Avoid using solvents when cleaning plastic parts.
Most plastics are susceptible to damage from
various types of commercial solvents and may be
damaged by their use. Use clean cloths to remove
dirt, dust, lubricant, grease, etc.
Do not at any time let brake fluids, gasoline,
petroleum-based products, penetrating
oils, etc., come in contact with
plastic parts. Chemicals can damage, weaken or
destroy plastic which may result in serious
personal injury.
All of the bearings in this product are lubricated with
a sufficient amount of high grade lubricant for the
life of the unit under normal operating conditions.
Therefore, no further lubrication is required.
See Figures 34 - 43.
Never start the engine before installing the
guide bar, chain, clutch cover, and clutch drum.
Without all these parts in place, the clutch can
fly off or explode, exposing the user to possible
serious injury.

Need instructions on how to replace a chain on Homelite chainsaw

Remove the drive end side cover after releasing the chain brake if it exists and removing the mounting nuts. The bar should slide back and allow the old chain to be removed. Take out the bar and clean it's oil passages including the two small channels that go out to the chain groove. Clean the entire chain groove. Clean the motor case side where the bar fits to. Run the motor for a few moments to see if oil oozes out of the side port. If ok, reinstall the bar and push back. Thread the new chain over the sprocket, then work it over the bar making sure the bottom run of chain cuts toward you. Pull the bar outward. Replace the cleaned cover making sure the adjustment tang drops into one of the large holes in the bar--you may have to back out the adjustment screw several turns. Replace the mounting nuts finger tight and adjust the chain until it pulls the lower run of chain up to the bar, yet you can still pull the chain by hand. Tighten the bar nuts firmly and recheck the chain tension. Check for proper oiling by running the saw tip near cardboard for several moments--it should leave a thin line of oil on the cardboard. Hope this helps!

Can i download a manual for the homelite 33cc chainsaw to get instructions for how to put a new chain on

Release the chain brake. Back off the chain adjustment screw several turns and remove the two large cover nuts. Remove the drive cover, then pull the bar back toward you. This will allow the old chain to be removed. Remove the bar and clean the entire area where the bar mounted. Check the outside edges of the chain groove area for any flaring out of the bar metal due to wear. Use a flat file to cut off this flaring edge (at about 45 degrees) so that nothing projects beyond the bar vertical surface on both sides. Turn the bar upside down to even the wear in the chain groove. Clean the oil holes in the bar end including the small channels that bring oil from large holes out to the chain groove on each side and clean the entire chain groove. Insert the bar, then feed the new chain with the teeth on the lower run cutting toward you, onto the sprocket, then work it over the entire bar and pull the bar out as far as it will go. Install the cover (which has been cleaned too) and run the nuts on finger tight (make sure the adjustment tang dropped into a large hole at the bar rear). Turn the adjustment screw CW until the chain ceases to droop from the lower bar, but the chain can still be pulled by hand. Tighten the large nuts firmly and recheck chain tension--if ok, start the engine and hold the bar tip near a piece of cardboard while the engine runs at speed for several moments--you should get a thin line of oil thrown off onto the cardboard. Hope this helps!

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!

Backwards chainsaw blade

You remove the two nuts that hold the bar on, then the cover will come off. Don't forget to loosen the adjusting screw next to the bar to loosen it. Also, don't forget that once these two nuts are off, the bar will come off as well.

I have a homelite chain saw that the bar oil is not dispenseing

May be oil port on saw clogged. Remove side cover, remove bar and chain. Remove giude plate if equipped. Check to see if small oil hole on saw is open and clean. You can start the saw with side cover removed to see if oil is coming from oil hole or not. If it is coming from oil hole when running the problem is most likely dirty bar .If bar is dirty check to see that groove is clean and the oil hole along the edge of bar is clean also. The hole is at same end of bar that attaches to saw.
