Question about Remington Electric Pole Saw
I take it to mean the exact same chain that was on there before now appears to be too long. Obviously, this is a clue. These things don't stretch.
All chain saws will have the chain get loose with use. You should be checking this and make an adjustment before it gets so loose that it comes off which is very dangerous and can cause injury.
When it appears too long, I can think of two things that may be happening.
1. It really is too long and you need to find the adjustment screw near the base of the blade and screw it in (with a long screw driver or the tool that came with the unit when you bought it) which pushes the chain saw blade further out and tightens the chain. Usually, to get the blade back on, I have to tighten the screw and loosen the chain and then make it tight again after everything is together, so experiment with the process of tightening and loosening the screw. (Note, the loosening and tightening assumes that the nuts on the big bolts that hold on the blade have been loosened to allow the blade to slide. Make sure this loosening was done first.) 2. The chain may have slipped of the sprocket gear that drives the chain. If you have not taken the blade off you can't see this gear well and might not notice. Disassemble the blade and put it back together seeing that the chain is properly seated. Don't screw the bolts tight before you adjust the tension in the blade as in my remarks above. Tighten the bolts well, as the final step.
