Can you verify the bar oil holes are clear?
is the breather on the oil tank working? air should be able to get in but not let oil out

can you verify the drum / sprocket is turning the pump worm gear ?

is the oil tank filter clean, not blocked, and oil line to pump clear ?

is the oil outlet passage to bar mount face clear ? if all of the above are ok then you have a faulty pump replace it and reassemble saw
refill oil tank and test

be sure to remove clutch assy turning it clockwise to remove it
it has a left hand thread

I have a POULAN PRO 3516AVX chainsaw that I have to tighten the chain after every cut . What gives?


If the chain is stretching then it is either poor quaility chain, or there is not enough oil getting to the chain, it is impotant to use a non fling chain oil so as to lubricate the bottom of the bar where most cutting is done. hold the tip of the bar close to a clean peice of card board, rev the saw, there should be a good line of oil showing on the card board.

My husqvarna automatic chain oiler doesn,t work...235 husqvarna any fixes?.


You may have gotten some saw dust particles inside the oil resevoir that got sucked into the delivery tube, thus clogging up the oiler...you can drain the oil out of resevoir and run some seafoam thru the oil resevoir to see if you can get it unclogged

What type of oil does my black and decker chainsaw need


You can use SAE 30 weight motor oil or bar and chain oil. Press the bulb on the resevoir cap 2x before each cut making sure the saw is pointed down and to the right to let the gravity feed oiling system work properly.

Is it bar oil that needs to be put in the resevoir


Yes; bar oil is SAE 30 with a some additives to make it adhere to your bar and chain. An excerpt from a Remington manual follows:

From your OM, page 9 (edited).
FILLING OIL TANK
1. Remove oil cap.
2. Fill oil tank with SAE 30 motor oil if the temperature is between 30 & 75°F

Colder use SAE 10 oil.
Warmer use SAE 40 oil.
3. Replace oil cap at once. Tighten oil cap firmly for a good seal. This will avoid oil seepage from tank.
4. Wipe off excess oil.

It is normal for oil to seep when saw is not in use.
Empty oil tank after each use to prevent seepage.
This is from a Remington OM

Need chain oil resevoir for Remington electric


I suspect you did an on line search, we can do no better. Remington has ceased production. Parts availability is limited to what is on hand. It might be advisable to save the money you would expend for parts and put it toward the purchase of a new electric saw.
Poulan has been in business a very long time and offers 8 different models. Some can be found at Lowes. HTH

Sooner or later you will encounter a part that isn't available for your Remington. Yours may be worth more as parts than as a complete assembly. eBay?

Remington chain saw oil problem


hi,

yes sounds as if you have gummed up the port for the oiler. you will need to clean the oil resevoir out using some kerosene or mineral spirits this will clean the port out and will not be harsh on the plastic. bar and chain oil is thick but has a sticky quality or viscosity that allows it to lubricate gas engines mor effectively and uses the heat from the engine to help thin it to a consistency to be of use to the bar and chain. on an electric chain saw there is not enough heat to allow this. a good oil resevoir cleaning and replace you oil with a light weight oil recommended this should do the trick. good luck hope this helped.

a fix that sometimes works is to add kerosene to oil tank where the oil would go normally and rev saw several times with out load holding blade in down position over a piece of dry card board so you can see the oil spraying on the piece of cardboard careful of moving chain

Husqvarna chain saw oiler


My Husky 36 did this. The oil pump drive gear was stripped and had to be replace. It's located under the flywheel/sprocket so you have to pull that. I couldn't find info on how to do that so had a local shop repair it for $70! Parts are cheap, labor is not.
