SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Chainsaw Bar Lube Oil Leaking

A new mounting bar would solve this issue. On that mounting bar there is a little piece that allows oil to drop onto the bar when you call for it or if this is a electric bar oil chain saw. Then it tracks when it needs to open.

SOURCE: Husqvarna chainsaw 440e - enough chain lube?

That seems low to me. Page 15 in your manual is the only oil discussion I found. Usually there is an oil pump adjustment reference somewhere. I didn't see one beyond return it for service on page 15. Are the chain and bar hot after cutting a while? I recommend you not get a longer bar without an oiler adjustment. I think the hand of the EPA has been here.

There is no oiler adjuster listed. HTH

Place a business or index card between the fly wheel and coil, rotate until the magnetic attraction pulls everything tight together. Tighten the coil screws, rotate the flywheel until the attraction eases and remove the card. Ensure nothing contacts when flywheel is rotated.

There really is no exact type of oil that goes into the chain and bar oiler. Each manufacturer usually makes their own, but any chain and bar oil will work. It is a thicker type of oil unlike a motor oil. Just ensure that the bottle says "bar and chain" oil

Removing the Oil Pump
  • 1

    Pull off the spark plug's rubber boot. Unscrew the spark plug with the socket wrench. Remove the spark plug and insert the piston stop tool into the hole. Remove the starter cover and turn the flywheel by hand until the piston contacts the stop tool.

  • 2

    Unscrew the brake band's cover screws with the star Allen wrench. Remove the brake spring from its anchor pin with the end of the screwdriver. Caution: this spring is under a lot of pressure and may pop out unexpectedly. Remove the brake band from its seat on the crankshaft.

  • 3

    Remove the E-clip that holds the washer, sprocket and clutch drum to the crankcase. Pull them off the crankshaft. Unscrew the clutch's bolt with the socket wrench. Loosen the bolt clockwise and remove from the crankshaft. Pull off the washer. Remove the clutch shoes and the clutch spring.

  • 4

    Twist the worm and drive spring clockwise and remove them from the crankshaft. Unscrew the oil pump's mounting screws. Take the oil pump off its seat and remove from the crankshaft. Remove the bottom washer.

  • 5

    Disassemble the oil pump. Knock out the spring pin on the bottom with a punch. Pull the bottom control bolt from its hole and remove the O-rings. Pull the end plug off housing and remove the pump piston, spring and washer.

An index or business card is a good gap tool. Remove the plug, rotate until magnetic attraction pulls coil and card tight to flywheel, tighten the coil screws.

Homelite d3300 chainaw has stopped lubbing itself


Oil System Plugged.
Remove the clutch cover, bar and chain. Clean the oiler hole and channel. Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up. If yes reassemble your saw.
If no a blunted, hooked piece of wire can be used to pull the hose in the oil tank out. I recommend the filter be replaced. Work your way through the linkage cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (clutch is probably left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly. GL

Have a MAC 3818 chain saw it just stopped oiling.


Same for me. Take chain off and ensure clean oil hole and channel. Clean hole if needed with fine wire or heavy nylon line. otherwise I think problem is interior, either oiler itself or oiler oil tube came loose. Since I have no excess oil coming out I suppose oiler iself is bad.Still working on it.
