Remove the bar and chain. Clean all parts exposed including the bar drive-end small oil channels that feed oil out to the chain groove on both sides of the bar. Start the engine and look for oil oozing out of a small side port where the bar fits to. If ok and no oil seems to coming from under the case, reassemble all components. Start the engine and run the bar tip at speed near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil. This saw should have an oil volume adjustment screw in the case back near the lower run of chain or just under the case in the same area. Turn CW to reduce volume. Hope this helps!

Which oil do i use in a ryobi C4620 chainsaw?


Do NOT use lightweight motor oil for that bar! Use only bar/chain oil for it - nearly any brand will do just fine, but it needs to be bar/chain oil. Bar/chain oil is specially formulated to stay on the bar & chain in use - motor oil will fling away & your bar won't get the lubrication it needs.

For fuel mixing, use nearly any brand of 2-cycle oil, which is specially formulated to provide lubrication even when it's mixed into your fuel. Use about 3.2 ounces of 2-cycle oil per every gallon of gasoline - a little more won't hurt (it'll make the saw smoke a little), but never use less. Always shake the gas can just before you refill your saw's tank - shaking helps make sure the oil & gas are well-mixed.

I have a bosch ake 4o Chainsaw I live in Crete what no oil do I use, I cannot get bosch biodegradeable oil Here


sae 30 will be ok in the oil tank to lubricate the chain, most manufacturers will recommend bio oil as we live in a green age, mineral chain oil has a non fling addative so as the oil lubricates the bottom of the bar where most cutting is done and not just fly off the end of the bar.

Not sure what kind of oil for the chain to use? 10w30?


Chain oil is usually much thicker and has an anti fling addative, if you use too light an oil it will just fling off the end of the bar and not lubricate the bottom of the bar where most cutting is done, if you cannot get chain oil use as thick an oil as you can get.

Where do i purchase chain saw oil for electric chain saw


Hi
It would be helpful to know where durban is. In most parts of America "Bar Oil" is available at many hardware stores, and certainly at any chain saw dealership.
Oddly enough, many "Green" aware saw operators are now using vegetable oil as a lubricant. So Canola oil, Corn oil, or any other fairly thick, heavy vegetable oil will work fine.
The oil is pumped onto the bar at the top of where it exits the motor housing, and then circulates around the bar. Much of it is lost on the first pass the chain makes through the wood. This is carried away in the chip stream coming out of the cut. On many gas saws, you can see oil being slung off the chain when you rev the motor up.
The green feeling is, all this oil is left where we cut. Are we leaving a biodegradable oil behind? Or a contaminant that will take years to degrade.

Stay safe, keep the blade sharp - use the protective gear as directed.

What type of oil I use


The Remington manual for model 111409-01 states: "This Pole Saw requires lubrication only to prevent rust on the guide bar and saw chain. The saw chain provided is pre-lubricated at the factory. With each use of the Pole Saw apply a small amount of lubricating oil directly to the saw chain (see Figure 8). The oil will distribute itself around the chain and guide bar groove during use?preventing rust. We recommend using SAE #30 motor oil for lubrication and rust prevention."

Lubrication


The cap on top with the bulb, screws off. Use bar oil. Give the bulb a pump every 30 seconds of operation or so. This will keep your chain and bar lubricated.

Sounds like th clutch brake is engaged. Try Pushing firmly foward on the hand guard in front of the handle. It should click to release the clutch brake.
