Question about Garden

1 Answer

The chain on my homelite chainsaw keeps coming off. Any suggestions as to why and what I need to do to repair it. The chain becomes very dull as a result since it travels through part of the metal casing.

Are you keeping the chain tight per the manual? Chains will stretch with use and typically as they get hot they loosen. When you have the chain tight, on the bottom of the bar between the bar and chain you should only be able to slip a dime in (the narrow part). I usually have to tighten my chains about every 30 minutes or so. If you over tighten the bar hold down bolt you risk stripping (pulling) it out of the engine.

There is no magic bullet for this. You must periodically snug the chain up as you use the saw.

Another thing to check is wear on the bar. If the bar groove is worn the chain will come off with less slack in it then it should.

I hope this helps.

New Homelite. Cut great for an hour, then the chain wouldn't grip or cut. Chain was loose so I tightened but still doesn't cut- just


The blade is no longer sharp, something not unusual after about an hour of cutting. How long a blade stays sharp depends on what type of wood you're cutting, whether the blade contacted the ground or anything other than wood at any time, and how hard you are working the bar through the wood. If you are cutting hardwood or something like railroad ties the lifespan of the blade is greatly reduced. You can easily sharpen the blade with a hand file or dremel tool with a chain saw blade kit on it or have the blade sharpened. Best practice is to have one or two extra blades so you can change them as they become dull.

I just started up my new 16" Homelite and the engine starts, but the mechanism that powers the chainsaw isn't rotating... any suggestions?


The engine needs to be accelerated to make the chain turn. The chain should not be so tight on the bar that you can't turn it by hand. Make sure the chain brake is off by pulling back on the brake paddle which has a 'toggle' effect--it should snap over to the new position. If still having problems, it is time to return for warranty exchange or repair. Hope this helps!

I HAVE A HOMELITE XL2 CHAINSAW WITH A 12 INCH BAR, CAN I INCREASE THE BAR TO A 14 OR 16 INCH BAR.


Usually, yes. Take the saw to a service dealer who can fit a longer bar and proper length chain. You will need to keep the chain properly sharpened and adjusted to prevent extra load on the engine. Hope this helps!

Ryobi pcn3335 chainsaw chainbrake will not release fully


1. Is there a Homelite/Ryobi dealer/authorized repair facility near you? If yes I'd try them they may repair it.
2. Any major chainsaw seller/repairer may be able to repair it... there will be a fee.

I own a few chain saws without chain brakes. I also own and use good PPE.

Chain brake will not release (homelite chainsaw)


The header says you have a Homelite saw and if this correct you can go to Homelite.com and look up parts or other information that you might need for your saw. There is also a contact us area. Good luck
