I have a 14" electric Cradftsman chain saw. No manual. How do I oil the chain? Do I have to push cap up and down to oil chain or does it do it automatically?

    Those questions should be answered in your OM. To attempt to answer we need a model number (probably 358.something).

If you go to the link, type in 35834104 with a little luck and a few clicks a parts list will appear.

There is no oil pump listed or pictured so I suspect you must actuate a bulb on the filler cap (before each cut). There is an OM available on the listing pn 530165784, $4.93. I think your saw was made by Poulan and is a model 1425 Type 2 but I cannot with certainty verify that. If the saw is in good shape an OM is an investment I would make.

I have a Remington 14' Limb n' Trim electric chainsaw. There is an oil reservoir (I think - it has a little rubber cap) and I am not sure if it is for motor oil. If it is, what type of oil should I use?


jmccabe2465-

The reservoir is for bar chain oil, which all chain saws require to allow the chain to operate smoothly and reduce heat build-up from friction.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

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.

What type of oil does remington 3.5 electric saw uses?


You need “Bar and Chain Oil”, available at hardware stores and home centers. It is SAE 30 (30 weight non-detergent oil) with additives to make it adhere to your bar and chain.
An excerpt from a Remington manual follows (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.

Some manuals go from page 6 to page 14. This one is very good.

What type of oil is used in the remington 16" chain saw?


From page 9 of a M12510US (bar oil is SAE 30 with additives to help it adhere to the bar and chain):
FILLING OIL TANK
1. Remove oil cap.
2. Fill oil tank with SAE #30 motor oil. Note: For temperatures below 30°F, use SAE #10 oil. For temperatures above 75°F, use SAE #40 oil. 3. Replace oil cap at once. Tighten oil cap firmly for good seal. This will avoid oil seepage from tank.
4. Wipe off excess oil.
Note: It is normal for oil to seep when saw is not in use. Empty oil tank after each use to prevent seepage.

This is one of the most complete "Owners Manuals" Remington offers. If not your saw you can find your manual here:
Remington.com

  • Type "YourModelNo" into the "Model #:" window, then click search.
  • Click the YourModelNo - Remington Electric Chain Saw "View Model" link.
  • Click “View Owners Manual” or "View Illustrated Parts Breakdown" link.

Wen electric chain saw -is it doa?


Are you pressing the trigger lock with your thumb before you pull the trigger? That's a safety feature to prevent accidental sawing.

There's not a sensor for the oil, but you don't want to run the saw dry. It takes a special bar/chain oil which is thicker than motor oil.

FYI... if you look for a manual on the web, search for "Wagner chainsaw" because Wagner bought the chainsaw business from Wen.
