Use regular bar/chain oil available from home centers, hardware stores, and saw shops. Always keep the chain properly sharpened and tensioned so that you don't have to force the chain into the cut which causes motor overheating. If you need to make an 'under' cut, do so with the top of the bar--don't run the saw upside down. Good luck!

What oil please


Best to use proper chainsaw oil to lubricate the chain cutting in the wood, but at a pinch you can use multigrade car engine oil. Don't use secondhand oil as the added acids,pollutants, etc., from the engine will break down the oil making it less efficient....and leave staining on the wood.
Chainsaw oil can be readily bought from good garden centres.
Hope this helps.

I don't know on that model number if the chain oiler has any adjustment.If it does then you can cut it down some. If not as long as the saw is cutting good I would not worry much about it cause about the worse thing thats going to happen is it will make a mess.However a lack of oil can cause damage quickly,such as a ruined chain or guide bar.

Bought a Ryobi cs214 at a pawn shop. There is no oil in the holder for smooth running of the machine. Would like to know what kind of oil does the Ryobi CS214 takes.


Just fill the tank with regular bar/chain oil available at home centers, hardware stores, and saw dealers. Don't use old used motor oil or similar. Hope this helps!

Where are the oiling ponts to the bar to the ryobi 16 inch petrol chainsaw?


Hi
It's Lisa?
On an electric chainsaw there usually aren't what you would call oiling points.Somewhere,probably on the rear or one side of the case will be a bulb.It's also the screw on cap for the oil reservoir.
You fill that up with chainsaw bar oil,and as you use the saw every few minutes push the bulb down 2-3 times and it applies oil to the chain and gear in the case.The chain transfers the oil to the bar.
If this helps,would you rate my post please?
Thanks Bob
By the way,if you give me your model number I can look for a manual somewhere.No promises though,Ryobi likes to sell their manuals rather than download them.

Need to know what kind of oil to put in ryobi chainsaw


If it is an electric chainsaw (not gas powered) then the only oil you need is chainsaw bar oil, which lubricates the chain and bar during use (self feeding system). This goes into the chamber at the top of the saw. You can buy chain/bar oil for chainsaws at any good hardware store or outdoor power equipment store. You can use any brand of chain bar oil, most are pretty good.

If it is a gas/petrol operated model, I will need to know the model number to advise on that.

14" Ryobi petrol chainsaw will only run for 10 seconds


You are on the right track. Keep priming which indicates the fuel mixture is too lean to run. In other words the fuel line is partially clogged up. A drop of water on the gas tank would cause this problem. The fuel is fed on the suction basis. So clean up the fuel tank, (disassembly the carburator) reservoir, needle, float, offrice and fuel filter. A can of carburator cleaner (spray one) is a big help.

Ryobi 14 inch electric chainsaw won't cut with new chain


Hi Rossmac,

Both the smoke and it's lack of cutting ability are symptoms of the same problem. The Chain is dulled. Instead of cutting, it's just rubbing on the wood and heating up. It's also not a big deal to fix..

Your options are:
  • Replace the Chain
  • Have the Chain sharpened
  • Sharpen it yourself
To sharpen it yourself, you will need a narrow round file that will fit inside the Chain teeth. Each tooth has a two cutting edges, get the file a position that matches the tooths angle of attack. Don't over do, three to five swipes of the file should do it on each surface.

You will see they alternate directions. You may find it easier to do all the teeth in one direction (skipping every other tooth) then do the other direction. Up to you.

When you are done, check the level of your chain oil. Since it did get hot, you might manually oil the chain before trying out your handi-work.

Go cut some wood.
Mike
