Does the sprocket drive shaft turn when the sprocket does not? If so, look for broken coupling between the shaft and the sprocket. If the output shaft doesn't turn, then suspect a damaged (probably plastic) gear within the gearbox. Hope this helps!

Motor runs, but chain does not move


check to see if the chain is on the sprocket to do this you will probably have to remove the side cover on the saw if chain is on sprocket and still will not move then you may have a sheared key in the key way if this saw has one, if it does you should be able to see the key way on the end of the shaft coming out of the motor. there should be a nut that holds the sprocket in place if that nut is loose and the shaft is splined instead of having a key way the the sprocket could slip while the motor is turning.

Using a 10 ft cord the saw just stoped ' wasn't hot or anything,tryed another cord but no go.


Have you checked to see if the breaker overloaded. If it seems fine, the chain saw is most likely bad. Try another type of appliance or ? to see if it will start with the same cord. Then you will know if the chain saw is bad.

Hi there, a couple of features come to mind that may be the cause of your problem.

Firstly, make sure that the saw is unplugged from the power supply.
  • The chain brake is active and wont allow sprocket movement and hence the chain. If necessary, pull the front guard (in front of the front handle) back until it clicks.
  • Electric saws generally have an additional motor-stop feature built into the trigger mechanism which is deactivated when the trigger is squeezed. So, in order to move the chain along the bar the trigger needs to be squeezed releasing the motor-stop. A tip - wear gloves when handling chains and move the chain towards the bar tip ie in the direction of the cutters - if the chain suddenly stops you wont remove several layers of skin in the process ! better still use a screwdriver against the back of one of the cutters and move it forwards - there should be some resistance and there should be no slack chain on the underside of the bar. Hope this helps.

The switch of the saw is not working 00


You need an AC voltmeter to trace the problem with the switch. It can also be a bad motor brush/spring--these saws are great for killing motor brushes, and there are virtually no replacements available as Remington has ceased saw operations. If it is a bad brush, visit an electrical tool shop to see if they have something that will work from a different brand of tool. Good luck!

How do i know if chain is on correctly/


Does the chain move when the motor is started? Make sure the chain doesn't droop from the lower side of the bar and the teeth cut toward you on the bottom side. The chain should not be so tight that you can't move it by hand. Run the saw for a few moments with the tip near a piece of cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the cardboard. Make sure that the chain is properly sharpened and cuts without undue effort. Hope this helps!

Unit works but chain stops when pressure applyed, what oil goes resevior.


Does the motor continue to run when chain stops? Electric saws usually don't have a clutch, so I would look for badly-worn chain sprocket, or a possible sheared key in the sprocket hub, or a loose mounting nut. Remove the chain and bar, try to turn the sprocket by hand (wear good gloves). There may be some type of overload clutch built into the sprocket.
