Remington mighty mite chain saw

The oiler on my saw appears to be plugged up. I have been told that the oiler is powered by compression. How do I unplug the compression line?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Wayne

Oiling has nothing to do with compression.It has conection only with engine rotation(rpm).More rpm results more oil and viceverse.Check the oil filter,the oil line,the holes from the bar,the oiler,the wormgear and the oil hose.

wish you all the best savumihai71

For an electric saw, just add oil to the chain oiler, plug it in, and cut away. Do not put any body parts in contact with any of the moving parts of the saw.

You might actually have the chain too tight. With the saw off you should be able to lift the chain until the gear tooth (tooth on inside of chain) almost lifts out of the chain bar.
I've never used an electric chain saw but if it has a chain oiler you should also check your chain oiler to make sure you're getting enough oil on the chain, if you run the saw with the chain aim at a clean surface you should see oil on the surface almost immediately.

I have 3 older Poulan chain saws, XXV, 1800, and 2000, essentially identical saws. They all use a check valve from the crankcase to pressurize the chain oil reservoir. The check valve apparently uses an...

These oilers are called diaphragm oilers and work fairly well when the saw is new with great compression. As the saw wears out, the compression drops and a side effect is less oil pumped. The diaphragm is replaceable and it's not horribly expensive. Most good saws use a gear oiler - and even the newer Poulans use gear oilers. The gear oilers tend to have less problems and don't rely on engine compression.

Guide bar nut loose (stripped stud). How do I replace the stud ? It does not seem to unscrew ! Remington Mighty Mite

I hope the nut is stripped and the stud is OK. Try to gently wedge something below the nut and with a socket attempt to slowly unscrew it.
Remington IPLs can be found here:
They do not use model names. Under "Products" click "Chain Saws"; find an image matching your model and click it. Some list a manual that includes an IPL some do not. If no IPL is listed the only place to get help is the "Repair Center" nearest you for parts. I doubt a bad stud can economically be replaced.
If the stud is still good NAPA Auto Parts can assist you to find a replacement nut. HTH

Joe you are weak! While we are not calling you a sissy girl, we do wonder. You need to build up your arms. Try lifting weight for about a month before you try to start the engine again. Stay out of dark alleys until you do. We will be watching.
