Remove the bar and chain. Lay the chain out on a bench or table and examine for sideways bent/broken links, badly damaged cutting teeth, or damaged drive teeth. Inspect the bar chain-groove all the way around for any damage. Make sure the tip sprocket turns freely and is not damaged. Check the sprocket on the clutch drum for hooked teeth or other damage. Clean the small oil passages that feed oil out to the chain groove in the drive end of the bar. Start the engine and check the engine side port where the bar fits to--it should ooze out oil from the small port there. If everything checks ok, re-assemble the bar and chain leaving the cover fasteners finger tight. Adjust the chain until it pulls up to the bar, but not so tight that you can't turn turn it by hand. Tighten the bar fasteners and re-check the chain tension. Start the engine and hold the bar tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments of running at speed. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: The chain on the 16 in chain saw keep slipping.

First thing I would do would be to loosen the thumb screw fully so the chain is as loose as you can get it Next, loosen the chain bar and pull it out as far as possible which will take up the slack in the chain itself. Re tighten the chain bar. Afterward, you can perform detailed adjustment on the chain by playing with the thumb screw.

This solution has always worked for me and my various chainsaws.

SOURCE: chain came off

Pull side cover at rear of bar--clean everything including cover with compressed air including air vent holes around the motor case. Pay attention to two small holes in bar (one on each side) which deliver oil from motor frame to the chain slot in the bar. Only one hole is used at a time depending which side up is used when installing the bar. Lay the loose bar on a flat surface to see if it has been bent sideways (it will rock back and forth). Do the same with the chain (remove any cross-over loops). Replace one or both if apparently bent. Check original chain for any lengthwise looseness and check sprocket which drives the chain for excessive wear on teeth. Run the saw without bar and chain for short time to see if oiler pumps oil out of port. If everything looks ok, thread the chain onto the sprocket with teeth cutting-edges pointing toward the case on the bottom edge of the bar. Fit bar into extended chain and work under-side of chain into the bar slot all the way around (except rear of bar), then extend bar to pull chain fairly tight. Next, fit cover to case ensuring that adjuster tang is in the proper hole at the rear of the bar (may have to turn adjuster screw CCW several turns) and fits flat to case. Install bar holding nut(s) hand tight, and then adjust chain adjuster CW until chain holds tight to under side of bar, but still free to turn chain by hand. Tighten nuts firmly and recheck chain. Put some oil into small holes near tip sprocket (if any) to lube sprocket. Finally, run saw with chain tip near paper or cardboard surface to check for slight oil line appearing off of the running chain. Check and resharpen chain teeth if required.
Good luck!

I put the bar & chain on, the three hole line up easily but how do i get the brake back on the clutch?


The proper sequence to installing the chain should be to first ensure the brake is in the 'unlocked' position then loosen the chain adjustment screw, slip the chain over the back of the sprocket, align the chain with the bar, slip the bar onto the bar mounting studs ensuring the adjustment pin slips into the appropriate hole in the bar. Then slip the outer chain cover over the bar studs, elevate the front end of the bar and tighten the bar mounting nuts to 'snug'. Adjust the chain tension to the desired setting ensuring the front of the guide bar remains elevated, then tighten the nuts to secure the bar.


Remember to unlock the brake BEFORE removing the bar and chain because it is so much easier to unlock it mounted on the saw if yours is the design that comes off with the cover. If yours stays on the block of the saw and the blade is removed you have to secure the saw on the workbench or on the ground and unlock the brake just like you would with the bar installed.

Keeping the front of the bar elevated during assembly and adjustment of the chain will keep the chain tension correct for a much longer period. I hope this helps.

Chain keeps slipping off when in use.


Make sure the chain has not been damaged from past slipping by removing it from the machine and laying the chain out in a large circle on a flat surface. No part of the chain should be standing free of the surface--replace the chain if it does. The chain should be adjusted so that the chain just comes up to the lower bar edge, but not so tight that the chain cannot be turned by hand. Make sure the teeth are quite sharp for maximum cutting effect and minimum heat. Check the chain lubrication by running the bar tip at speed for a moment or two near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Don't continue to run the saw if the chain starts to droop from the bar. If it is quite hot, allow it to cool which should re-tighten the chain. Hope this helps!

How to replace the chain?


Look on the side of the saw, where the blade/chain enter the plastic case. You will see a nut in there. Loosen the nut, then push the bar backwards towards the saw. It will put slack in the chain and you can pull it off the sprocket/clutch in there. (Use a screwdriver if you can't reach in there with your fingers) and wear gloves... even a dull chain can gouge you if your fingers slip. Once it's off the sprocket, then just pull the whole chain off. To install the new one, put it around the sprocket, make sure the chain guides are lined up with the groove in the bar and on the tip of the bar, then pull out on the bar (away from saw) to take the slack out of the chain. Holding the bar firmly to keep the tension on the chain, tighten the nut again. Bada-bing you're done. Should only take about 5 minutes to change it.

Chain Slipping


Your chain would have to be incredibly loose to slip the sprocket. Enough that it would come off the bar before jumping the teeth on the rear sprocket. Highly unlikely.

The chain popped off and I can't get it to fit back on.


Losen the bar mounting nut, then losen the chain tension adjustment screw until the chain can be reinstalled, then tighten the tension screw until the chain just sags 1/8" or so at the center of the bar then retighten the bar mounting nut.

How do you adjust chain tension? I have the 16" Remington electric chain saw, and the chain will not stay tight; it slips off the rear sprocket as soon as I try to use it. I don't feel everything is...


Here is a link to instructions for EL-8 series saws ... http://www.desatech.com/pdf/115499-01_EL8_Series_Chain_Saw_Tension_Adjustment.pdf. For series LNT-2, LNT-3,EL-1, and EL-7 according to the manufacturer... "WARNING: The cutting edges on the chain are sharp. Protective gloves should be used when touching the chain. Unplug the chain saw from the power supply. Allow chain to cool. Loosen the guide bar nuts until they are finger tight. Ensure the adjusting block is in the adjustment hole in the guide bar. Turn the chain tensioning screw clockwise to increase tension. Turn the chain tensioning screw counterclockwise to decrease tension. Check for proper chain adjustment by pulling down on the chain at the bottom center of the guide bar. You should see no more than a ⅛ inch gap between the chain cutting links and the guide bar. The guide (or drive) links should not come out of the guide bar grooves. The chain should rotate freely around the guide bar. If it does not, chain tension should be decreased. When the chain is properly adjusted, tighten the guide bar nuts securely." On the M series if your chain keeps slipping off your sprocket... The Sprocket cover tab (located on the round part of the sprocket cover) isn’t inserted into the saw body tab slot. I hope this helps you!

Chain slips off bar


I would suggest adjusting the tension and cleaning and debris along the chain path (guide bar).

Here's the manual for Poulan PP4218AV =>

Look at page 6-7 for instructions to adjust the chain tension and page 16 for cleaning the guide bar.
