Question about Ryobi 18-inch Electric Chainsaw Chain Saws

1 Answer

I need a new chain for my Ryobi ECS-2040 Electric Chainsaw. Is there a specific configuration of the links I need to be aware of? The origional chain has been lost so I have no reference point and none of the retail shops I've been into list this model as a suitable model. A couple of retails have offered to make a replacement chain but have all requested the old one be bought in.

What oil does a ryobi cs216 electric chainsaw use ?


if you are talking about the bar chain oil (?) --- then all you need is just that ' bar/chain oil ' ,, you can get it from any hardware store that sells chainsaws.
now out here in the middle of nowhere Alaska where I am,, we just use used motor oil from our generators as a bar chain lube and it works just fine, ( not my ideal thing to use , but that is what the boss says to use and after 3 years here and using it -- I have not had any issues with our 4 saws that get over 3000 hours of use every year ).
I say -- use only good,clean and new bar chain oil.

Chain stopped working whilst sawing log on my new ryobi electric chainsaw. Can't find a way of rectifying, help please


As it is a new machine, you should return it for warranty repair or exchange. Make sure that the electricity source will power a working lamp. Good luck!

Ryobi cs214 chainsaw what chain is needed for it?


Take the old chain to a servicing saw dealer that can cut and make up one to fit nearly any saw made. Plus, they will usually give you good tips on maintaining the new chain as well. Hope this helps!

What size file do i use for a Ryobi chainsaw model PCN4545 to sharpen the chain


The standard chain file should fit it. It is about 3/16 dia. I found the dremel to work 10 times better, they have a little stone bit just for chains. Eventually, you have to take it in for sharpening, it will set all the teeth the same.

My ryobi chainsaw rcs 2040 keeps stopping but motor is still running, chain not moving!


RYOBI----- with the motor running at high revs the chain stops indicates that the sprocket behind the centrifugal clutch is worn out or the centrifugal clutch itself ,or the clutch shoes are worn out the way to tell is to remove the bar and chain and have alook where the chain was conected to the saw, i think you will see the sprocket is buggered and as that is attatched to the clutch drum that will have to be replaced along with clutch springs and shoes, i think you have been running the chain a bit too loose or not running it at realy high revs ,which is what they are designed to do ,cme back to me if you feel the need

Need to know what kind of oil to put in ryobi chainsaw


If it is an electric chainsaw (not gas powered) then the only oil you need is chainsaw bar oil, which lubricates the chain and bar during use (self feeding system). This goes into the chamber at the top of the saw. You can buy chain/bar oil for chainsaws at any good hardware store or outdoor power equipment store. You can use any brand of chain bar oil, most are pretty good.

If it is a gas/petrol operated model, I will need to know the model number to advise on that.

Ryobi Elec Chain Saw ECS-2040


The number you provided don't cross to an exploded parts list.
The drawing can be found here:
Homelite/Ryobi.com
https://www.gardnerinc.com/recons/disclaimer-lg.php - Agree; Choose “Product Line”; “Select OEM” & “Select Catalog” both to “Homelite Consumer Products”. A drop down list appears; self explanatory from here.
I advise you find an authorized repair facility for your own safety. HTH
