Question about Garden
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.
