The nut may be cracked, like mine is. While I am trying to get a new one, I found I can still tighten the blade by laying the saw with the blade securing nuts up. Loosen the two nuts 1/2 turn. There is a small hole in the bar right near the case. Use a small screw driver placed in the hole and pry against the case to force the bar out and tighten the chain. While prying out on the bar, tighten the two nuts.

How do you tension remington electric chain saw


The most common would likely be by releasing the chain/blade assembly lock nuts (likely to be two) on the outside of and at the the drive end of the chain, or by first removing a cover over this part of the chain assembly to access these nuts. Next, there could be a tensioner screw assembly located between the inner side of the the saw blade and the motor or possibly at the back of the chain/blade assembly. Screwing this screw in the appropriate direction will tension the blade. After all slack is taken up on the chain (without over-tightening or stressing the chain!), re-tighten the two previously loosened lock nuts that secure the blade in place and replace the cover, if removed. This would most likely be the process for fitting a new chain as well!

How do you tighton the chain ?


Hi, first you must loosen the nuts that secure the bar. Then, you must find the tensioner screw which should be located on the opposite side of the bar. Use the appropriate screw driver to increase the tension on the chain. If you pull on the chain and it lifts about a quarter inch off the bar, then chain has the right tension. Re tighten the nuts that secure the bar. Good luck.

Put chain back on


Hi Eric,

You will need a ratchet and the socket that fits the nuts holding the bar on. Also a screwdriver that matches the bar tensioning screw.

The tensioning screw runs along the same plane as the bar and is located on the inboard side of the bar.

  • Get the chain as close as you can to being on
  • Loosen the bar nuts
  • Slide the bar in until you get the chain in place
  • Slide the bar out again
  • Make sure the clip attached to the tensioning screw registers with the hole in the bar.
  • Finger tighten the nuts
  • Use the screwdriver on the tensioning screw to tighten the chain
  • Ratchet the bar nuts down
Oil it up, it's ready to go.

REMINGTON POLE CHAIN SAW


The chain has to be tensioned when replaced. You lift the chain away from the bar about halfway and the tangs that run in the bar should just almost come out of the groove. There is a screw that extends the bar near where it attaches near the sprocket. adjust that with the bar mounting nuts not quite tight till the chain is tensioned correctely.

The chain popped off and I can't get it to fit back on.


Losen the bar mounting nut, then losen the chain tension adjustment screw until the chain can be reinstalled, then tighten the tension screw until the chain just sags 1/8" or so at the center of the bar then retighten the bar mounting nut.

The chain on my Remington electric saw keeps jumping the sprocket. Solution? Thanks.


Depending to what model you have, the Sprocket cover tab (located on the round part of the sprocket cover) isn’t inserted into the saw body tab slot. Or your cahin is not tensioned properly. According to the manufacturer... "The adjusting block on the adjusting screw isn’t inserted into the adjusting hole on the guide bar. Reinstall and align the sprocket cover by first removing the sprocket cover from the saw. Turn tensioning screw on the sprocket cover counter-clockwise until it stops. Pull guide bar away from saw body to remove slack from chain. Insert sprocket cover tab into saw body tab slot and lower sprocket cover into guide bar bolt. Finger tighten guide bar nut onto guide bar bolt. Slowly push guide bar toward saw body until adjusting block on the adjusting screw drops into round adjusting hole on the guide bar. Securely tighten guide bar nut after properly tensioning saw chain." If these tips do not work, you may need a new chain. You can order an new chain on-line at www.masterparts.net. I 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!

What type of oil do I use for a Remington Electric Pole Saw?


While Bar Chain oil will probably work, the owners manual (sitting in front of me) on page 9 says to "use SAE #30 motor oil". This is the owners manual for Models: M12510US, M15012US, M15014US, M15014AS, M30016US, M30016AS, M30016AW, M35016UW, M35016AW. Remington Electric Chain Saw

Chain tension


Hi Sally, I guess you don't have the owners manual. It tells you how to adjust chain tension. If you look around near the motor side of the bar, you should see two nuts that hold a bracket tight against the bar and an adjustment screw or bolt or something to loosen or tighten the chain by moving the bar or making it longer or shorter. Adjust that so that the bar is as short as possible and put the chain back in place. Then tighten that feature till the chain is snug again and tighten the two nuts to hold the bar firmly.
