The best way to clean the chain saw is to use a compressor to air blow the entire unit. Do not use water, only air. If you have no air available simply use a brush (like one that comes with a dustpan) and brush the saw all over.
As for the chain....there is a screw attachment at one of the ends of the shank (depending on what model) and by adjusting that it will tighten or loosen the chain. Also make sure that the gear that drives the chain is now worn.

How do i service my chain oiler


Make sure the bar groove is cleaned with a 'bar groove cleaner' its always good now and again or empty the oil tank completely and flush out with a bit of fuel, as sawdust and debris can often get into the oil tank when filling up. *DEEPER CLEAN - With in the oil tank itself is a plastic mesh filter, this mainly keeps larger debris from entering the oil line.. to clean the oiling system fully you want to remove the clutch drum and clutch, behind that is the oil pump. remove that and you can then blow an airline through the oil pipe and pick-up body back into the oil tank. Make sure both the inlet and outlet of the oil pump are clean of debris and replace it along with the clutch and drum. Also blow out the feed groove to the bar.
I've attached a copy of the full breakdown of the saw so you can see what you have to do.

After using anew chaini hit dirt. isharpenit withadifferntanglewillthat make a differencein cutting.


sure will , most saws have different angle cuts to teeth on blade this "angle" needs to be maintained as the "rake" teeth that are behind the cut teeth are set to provide a good way to wipe out cut debris (cut,rake,cut,etc.) this is how chain cuts thru wood , if one changes the cut angle on teeth the rake teeth might not do there job correct and saw bogs and "files" thru wood rather than chips thru wood ,takes longer ,more fuel, more effort , a look at saw cuttings tells the tale , more tiny file sawdust = dull chain --- large Chips and less dust = sharp chain

How to correct no oil flow to bar on Model172.34120


ive not done much with this model but I can give you some basics on why I see lots of chainsaws loose there oiling of bar
(1) Wrong oil used in supply tank- most all chain saws take 30 wt bar chain oil . this is a lite/fine oil and needs to be so it flows thru small ports and pump on saws
(2) fine sawdust in supply tank - I guess anything can fall in the tank but I do find theres a lot of junk that falls in there over time , if it don't flow like oil does then it don't belong in the tank
(3) sawdust jammed in bar ports this id say is the biggest one I find , seems sawdust (all different size pieces) finds its way into the fine ports that oil is suppose to flow thru , sawdust mixed with oil makes a darn fine plug !!!

other than these simple things above , most saws have lots of parts that can break and fall off look for something just not right looking and sometimes it will be very obvious whats missing

What would cause a new chain saw not to cut


Maybe I'm reading this wrong, but it sounds like you are saying your chainsaw is newer and runs fine, but it just isn't cutting wood well?

If that is the case then it means the chain wasn't sharpened correctly. Lots of guys do it at home and don't file down the raker teeth in front of the cutter heads, so the teeth don't grab into the wood and just nibble at the wood and make fine sawdust. It is always best to get the chain sharpened at a saw shop first so you can get an idea of the correct angles and depth of the rakers etc. After that you can try to match the saw shop for a while with a round file to take off ragged edges unless you have a decent professional saw sharpening unit.

Maintenance


in severe cuting duty clean the air filter every other time you refuel. at the end of every day inspect and clean the bar groove(sediment can fill these up causing oil to not reach the chain and tip) file burs off the bar( these can make the bar larger then the cut your chain makes therefore making it harder to pass through a log however be sure to not roll the edge with your file) and ensure your roller tip if equiped spins freely. next clean sawdust buildup from under the side cover and ensure the oiler journals are free of debris. remove your sprocket and chekk for wear, in most models you can flip the sprocket once one side starts becoming worn, next remove the clutch shoe (make sure chain brake is off) and clean buildup off inside be sure not to scratch to surface. finally remove the bearing and grease with white lithium bearing grease and re assemble the saw. in sever cutting conditions this should all be done daily. if your only cutting firewood a few days out of the year then once after each project should be enough. finally once a year you should inspect and replace if necesary you fuel and oil filters, if you have an adjustable oil system you can test your oiler by running the saw at max chain speed with the tip a few inches from a piece of wood if the chain slings a line of oil down then your oiling plenty. you can also pay attention to how much oil you saw goes through, it should need filled every time the gas does. if your chain is amking a whinning noise then either your not oiling enough or your chain is way to tight so pay attention to this as well

My Timberman 45 was in storage a long time, now have it out to use on downed trees. I can't seem to keep the chain tight enough, longer than about 15 minutes. Tricks or suggestions? Thanks.


I would remove the chain and give the guide channel a good cleaning. Use a small blade screwdriver to clean all debris and old bar oil and sawdust. I spray mine down thourghly with WD-40 and wipe dry. I would do the same with the chain to make it has not gotten a little rust on it during storage. Tighten snugly,run for five mins. then recheck and tighten again if needed > If you're still having problems I would try a new chain. Hope this helps.

Jonsered cs 2250 fixed flow oiler can the oiling rate be increased i think its not getting enough as the chain is running almost dry


Remove the housing that covers that bar and sprocket. There are two plates on each side of the bar that set over the studs.They may be identical or slightly different depending on the saw but at least one of them will have a hole in it for the oiler. If you remove the bar and both plates you will see the oiler hole on the saw housing. This oiler injects oil through the plate and into a small hole in the bar where the chain picks it up and carries it around the saw. If this hole becomes plugged with sawdust it will keep your saw from oiling the bar proplerly. This hole should be cleaned out periodically. It's not a bad idea to remove the whole chain periodically and clean the chain guide all the way around the bar and get any sawdust buildup out so the oil can flow better.

Flymo 2200 chain oil leak when machine is running


That chainsaw should leak oil off the bar. A small amount of oil flipping off the chain is how it is suppose to work. If it is a large amount of oil dripping from near the sprocket then you probably need to do some cleaning.
