Should be a nut on the side of chainsaw that covers the chain, sometimes all that is needed is to loosen nut them pull outwards on chain bar and retighten nut. Chain should have some play in it so dont make the chain hug the bar tightly. There is also an adjustment screw next to the bar that will tighten and loosen the chain but is used for small adjustments only.

some chainsaws have different knotches where the bar locks onto the saw. loosen the nuts and see if you can move the bar.

SOURCE: chain wont stay tight

Could be the correct nuts have been replaced with regular nuts. The original had a knurls on the nuts to hold in place. If they do not then you will have to do as bunnydawg says, use lock washers.

SOURCE: bar chain oil leaking into case when not in use

if you store it somewhere other than a climate controlled building , the changes in temperature can cause the oil to expand out of the saw a little each time the temp. goes up.

try some absorbent cloth

Chain tenion on chain saw


A new chain will need frequent adjustment untill it is broken in. Hold the tip of the bar up when tighting the bar nuts

Chain fell off and I can't get it back on.


Turn the saw off. Look for several nuts on the right side of the saw that hold the cover on and the blade to the saw. Loosen these nuts, and before taking the cover off, loosen the chain adjuster by turning it (usually a screw head on the same side, or on the front of the saw as you look down the blade towards the saw.) Loosening the chain adjuster moves a pin that goes into the bar (the part the chain rides around when operating) to push it away from the saw to tighten the chain when you are tightening it. Take the cover off, and put the chain around the sprocket at the back like a bicycle chain, and then while holding the bar (sometimes a partner helps) parallel to the saw and outward away from the front of the saw, align the bottom parts of the chain inside the bar guide slot all around the bar, holding just enough tension that it doesn't fall off the sprocket or get misaligned in the bar guide. Try moving the chain a little bit to make sure it is not binding on anything. If it doesn't move at all, make sure the chain brake is not on. Once it is moving smoothly, put the cover back on, and begin to hand tighten the nuts. Just before they begin to get tight, eyeball where the chain tensioner pin is in relation to the hole it is supposed to go in. Adjust the chain tensioner screw to move the pin towards the hole. When it pops in the hole, continue tightening the nuts by hand until tight. Now you and your partner can let go of the bar. Adjust the chain tensioner for the proper tension in the chain, not too loose, not to tight, refere to your manual. Finish tightening the cover nuts using the universal wrench to the specifications given in the owners manual.

What kind of oil do i use to maintain the chain on the saw?


Hello there, I just used 30 weight non detergent on my Still gas saw years ago.Mainly because it got used so fast.You might check your local bicycle shop cause they have stuff that stays on the chain better($10.00 and up).Just keep the chain sharp and don't overload it. Most any hardware store will carry some kind of chain oil.You could call a saw shop and ask them as well.I burnt up the plastic chain adjuster once because the chain was to tight ,had plenty of oil but chain was to tight.About 1/8 gap or a little less at the bottom the bar.Unplug , wear gloves and pull the chain around the bar to check for binding. THANK YOU for choosing FixYa.com.

I remove the chain brake and bar cover from my 51/55 Husquarna saw and cannot get the cover back on the saw. The brake band is to tight to fit over the clutch assembley and I cannot figure out how to get...


Hi, the chain brake has most likely been activated while removing the cover. Place the cover in a vise where the bar nuts tighten up to and pull the chain brake lever backwards towards where the handle bar would be. It should click back and stay back. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

Chain won't stay tight on my poulan 222 pro. I have the correct chain size. Does the bar need to be replaced?


No, the bar fasteners are not tight enough. If the saw is under warranty, take it to a servicing dealer for repair or instructions to correct what you are doing wrong. Good luck!

Where can I find a replacement bar and chain for my saw?


Remove the bar and chain from the saw. Take these parts to a saw servicing dealer who can match the bar and chain. Be sure to clean the area where the bar mounts. Run the saw for a few moments--the oil port in the side of the case should ooze out oil. Install the bar first, then thread the chain onto the sprocket, then work it over the bar. Pull the bar out until the chain is fairly tight, then fit the cover, but leave the mounting nut(s) finger tight. Turn the chain adjuster until the chain doesn't droop from the bar, but still be able to turn the chain by hand. Tight the mounting nut(s) and recheck tension. Run the saw at full speed with the tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the cardboard. Hope this helps!

Wild thing chain saw chain came off


The drive links are burred.

Then install and properly tension the chain

Chain Adjustment
  1. Make sure the chain brake is off (gloves will protest your fingers).
  2. If necessary, loosen the bar nuts that are clamping the clutch cover in place (or whatever holds the clutch cover and bar on). They do not need these really loose - finger tight will do.
  3. Ease the tension adjustment until the chain is obviously loose.
  4. Using one hand, hold the nose of the bar up.
  5. While holding the nose up, adjust the tensioner so that the center of the chain just touches the underside of the bar, add a touch more.
  6. Continue holding the nose of the bar up & tighten up the bar nuts / bolts / quick-release system. HTH

Cant Get The Chain To Stay On


Well, you have 2 choices. First one is to buy a new chain. Second one is to take your chain in somewhere and have a link removed. If you think this chain is that stretched you should check your chain oiler and make sure that it's working. Take the chain and bar off and run the saw and look at the oil port and see if oil is coming out. Also check the oil ports in the bar and make sure they are clear. The only way a chain can get this loose is from wear in the pins in the chain from running dry or too tight. Also make sure the surfaces on the bar where the chain rides are flat and square or your saw wont cut straight. Hope this helps you.

How do you adjust chain tension? I have the 16" Remington electric chain saw, and the chain will not stay tight; it slips off the rear sprocket as soon as I try to use it. I don't feel everything is...


Here is a link to instructions for EL-8 series saws ... http://www.desatech.com/pdf/115499-01_EL8_Series_Chain_Saw_Tension_Adjustment.pdf. For series LNT-2, LNT-3,EL-1, and EL-7 according to the manufacturer... "WARNING: The cutting edges on the chain are sharp. Protective gloves should be used when touching the chain. Unplug the chain saw from the power supply. Allow chain to cool. Loosen the guide bar nuts until they are finger tight. Ensure the adjusting block is in the adjustment hole in the guide bar. Turn the chain tensioning screw clockwise to increase tension. Turn the chain tensioning screw counterclockwise to decrease tension. Check for proper chain adjustment by pulling down on the chain at the bottom center of the guide bar. You should see no more than a ⅛ inch gap between the chain cutting links and the guide bar. The guide (or drive) links should not come out of the guide bar grooves. The chain should rotate freely around the guide bar. If it does not, chain tension should be decreased. When the chain is properly adjusted, tighten the guide bar nuts securely." On the M series if your chain keeps slipping off your sprocket... The Sprocket cover tab (located on the round part of the sprocket cover) isn’t inserted into the saw body tab slot. I hope this helps you!
