SOURCE: MAKITA DCS 341 SAW IS NOT OILING BLADE-HOW DO I

I was able to find an OM but no IPL and it is not a current model. With no IPL as a disassembly guide I cannot get into specifics. Makita is the parent company of Dolmar (German and actual manufacturer). A local Dolmar dealer may be able to help. You might also find help and guidance here:

I found a current DCS34-16 IPL here:
http://www.makita.ca/index2.php?event=tool&id=270&catid=40

it has an inboard clutch so I fear it will be of little value.

Oil System Plugged.

  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar), if equipped with a sprocket nose ensure it rotates easily at least one complete revolution. Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out. Pay attention to the screen or filter on the free end (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up (oozes down side of saw). If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Work your way through the linkage (use IPL to identify components and locations) 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 a left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly.
If it does not oil on completion of 1 it is most likely a bad oiler or worm gear (see IPL that I cannot find). The folk at ArboristSite are very helpful. That is where I would go at the unsuccessful completion of 1. HTH

Brand new, seems like everything assembled fine. Won't start. Right gas mix, right chain saw oil. No start. Makita dcs 400.


remove the chain and bar and try to start without it, if it start then chain was too tight. also you may need to do a small adjustment to carburator. check spark plug gap. check for spark. even brand new one need an adjustment at first use. if you can not make it start it has warranty. take it where you bought it.

My Makita dcs 4610 chansaw is not putting oil on the chain. The oil resevoir is full but no oil. I have cleaned it in general but want to know where the oil comes out in case it is blocked.


Remove the bar and chain, then clean the side of the engine case where the bar fits to. Start the engine--oil should ooze out of a small port in the engine case. If ok, clean the bar and cover, then clean the two small oil channels in the drive end of the bar which allow oil to flow out into the chain groove on each side (only one is active depending on which side of the bar is 'down'). If no oil came out of the engine port, then you need to investigate the oil pump (behind the clutch), oil lines, and oil filter in the tank. The oil pump, in particular, has plastic gears that can become damaged. When oil appears at the port, assemble the bar and chain. Adjust the chain (cover fastemers finger tight) so that the chain just pulls up to the lower bar edge, but not so tight that the chain can't be pulled by hand. Make sure the teeth cut toward you on the bottom run and are properly sharpened. Tighten the cover fasteners firmly and recheck tension. If ok, run the saw at speed for several moments with the tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!

My DCS401-16 starts w/difficulty, but won't run long, is leaking.


I suspect you have cracked fuel lines. An open line causes the saw to run lean. To large a leak and she won't run at all. Check your area for a Dolmar (owned by Makita) dealer. They sell red versions of your blue saw and for a nominal fee will be happy to help.

You own a pretty good saw.

What I would do first is remove the bar and run the saw a short time to see if oil coming out of pump (make sure there is oil in the tank) if so recheck the bar for blockage in the small round hole in the side and run something like a paper clip or small piece of metal to clean out the groove. If you need a breakdown for this tool you might want to try Makitatools.com. I haven't checked to see if it is there but usually it would be. Good luck

We need Make, model and serial numbers from the manufacturer's tag to help you any more. Your manuals can be found here:
