Your manual can be found here:

http://www.blackanddecker.com/Manuals.aspx with pop-ups enabled then enter your model number

See the instructions for replacing the chain on page 11. It makes reference to the figures on page 6 so that you know exactly what to remove.

Basically... loosen the bar allen screws. Remove the sprocket cover. Loosen the bar retaining bolts. Use a flat bladed screwdriver on the bar / chain tension screw to shorten the bar enough to install the chain. Then adjust the chain tensioner so that there is just a little slack in the chain at the bottom of bar between the drive sprocket and the bar. Tighten the bar retaining bolts install the cover / tighten all cover fasteners. (see details D and E page 6 of the 2nd link above.)

The steps below are copied from the manual.... I can not undo the formatting and can not post the figures here due to size restrictions..

Replacing the Saw Chain

CAUTION: Sharp chain. Always wear protective gloves when

handling the chain. The chain is sharp and can cut you when it is

not running.

WARNING: Sharp moving chain. To prevent accidental

operation, insure that battery is disconnected from the tool

before performing the following operations. Failure to do this

could result in serious personal injury.

• Place the saw on a firm surface. Rotate the two allen head screws

(11) counterclockwise with the wrench (13) provided as shown in

figure E.

• To remove the saw chain (9), rotate the tension adjustment screw

(23) in the front of the housing using the flat screwdriver end of the

wrench (13) as shown in figure F. Turning the screw

counterclockwise allows the guide bar to recede and reduces the

tension on the chain so that it may be removed.

• Remove sprocket cover (10) and allen head screws (11).

• Lift the worn saw chain (9) out of the groove in the guide bar (8).

• Place new chain in groove of guide bar making sure saw teeth are

facing correct direction by matching arrow on chain with graphic on

housing shown in figure G.

• Place the saw chain and guide bar assembly around the sprocket

(19). Check to make sure that the slot (20) in the guide bar (8) is

over the two location pins (21) shown in figure E and that the hole

below the slot is located over the adjustment pin (22).

• Replace sprocket cover (10) and thread allen head screws (11) in

with wrench until snug, then back wrench off one full turn.

• Pull bar nose up and keep it up as you adjust tension.

• Rotate the tension adjustment screw (23) in the front of the housing

clockwise to increase the chain tension as in Figure F.

Follow instructions in "Adjusting Chain Tension" section.

• While still holding the bar nose up, securely tighten the rear allen

screw (11) first, then tighten the front allen screw.

• When the chain is new check the tension frequently (after

disconnecting battery) during the first 2 hours of use as a new chain

stretches slightly.

Adjusting Chain Tension

CAUTION: Sharp chain. Always wear protective gloves when

handling the chain. The chain is sharp and can cut you when it is

not running.

WARNING: Sharp moving chain. To prevent accidental

operation, insure that battery is disconnected from the tool

before performing the following operations. Failure to do this

could result in serious personal injury.

• With the saw still on a firm surface check the chain tension. The
tension is correct when the chain snaps back after being pulled

1/8 inch (3mm) away from the guide bar (8) with light force from the

middle finger and thumb as shown in figure H. There should be no

"sag" between the guide bar and the chain on the underside as

shown in figure I.

• To adjust saw chain tension, loosen the allen head screws (11).

• Rotate the tension adjustment screw (23) in the front of the housing

using the flat screwdriver end of the wrench (13) as shown in

figure F.

• Do not over-tension the chain as this will lead to excessive wear

and will reduce the life of the bar and chain. Overtensioning also

reduces the amount of cuts you will get per battery charge.

• Once chain tension is correct, tighten allen head screws (11).

• When the chain is new check the tension frequently (after

disconnecting battery) during the first 2 hours of use as a new chain
stretches slightly.

What type of oil does my black and decker chainsaw GK1635T need


The chain lubrication should be a non fling chain oil, the non fling addative helps to keep the oil on the bottom of the bar where most cutting is done, rathere than spraying off the end of the bar.

I do not have a manual.... I can't adjust the tension. It looks like I have too much chain, the screw is as tight as I can get it. Help!! I have a Cordless Chain Saw, model CCS818 TYPE 1.


the bar should also raise and lower when you apply tension onto the blade - one way or the other it shoudl allow you to tighten the blade.,.. If it is still loose after that, you may be more safe to grab a new blade if this is from wear or use.
Also another fyi: If you get these blades hot and too tight, when they cool, they can warp your bar... I always loosen the chain on mine (per owners manual) immediately after use so it will not do any damage when it cools down..
Did you try to find an owners manual at black and decker dot com?
Best regards

Each type of chain may be a little different but for the most part it's about 45 degrees for the teeth that have a square outside to topside angle and 35 to 40 for the rounded outside to topside teeth.
