How to tighten chain on 4620avx poulan pro


First, RTFM- read the manual. Lost it? No problem, download it from Poulan PRO website page for PP4620avx. Pick a version you like, save and read it. Google is your friend.
Chain Adjustment Part cut and pasted as follows:
Adjusting the tension:
Chain tension is very important. Chain stretches during use. This is especially true during the first few times you use your saw. Always check chain tension each time you use and refuel your saw.
1. Lift lever on bar knob and turn counter-clockwise 1.5-2 turns to loosen clutch cover.
2. Turn adjusting wheel (downward direction) to tension chain until chain solidly contacts bottom of guide bar rail. Lift tip of guide bar while adjusting tension. Tighten chain Adjusting Wheel
3. Use a screwdriver to move chain around guide bar to ensure all links are in bar groove.
4. While lifting tip of guide bar, tighten bar knob securely (clockwise).
Hand tighten only.

Be careful not to destroy the adjustment mechanism. When it breaks, go for a clutch cover with the simple adjuster that needs a "scrench". Longer term, learn how to search this info. Saves time. Now you can work on sharpening chains- very important.

Chain tensioner screw keeps breaking on husqvarna 455 rancher


The tensioner should only move the bar when the retaining nut/nuts are loosened, once the nut/nuts are tightened there should be no pressure on the tensioner, so the nut/nuts are not tight enough.

Chain fell off and I can't get it back on.


Turn the saw off. Look for several nuts on the right side of the saw that hold the cover on and the blade to the saw. Loosen these nuts, and before taking the cover off, loosen the chain adjuster by turning it (usually a screw head on the same side, or on the front of the saw as you look down the blade towards the saw.) Loosening the chain adjuster moves a pin that goes into the bar (the part the chain rides around when operating) to push it away from the saw to tighten the chain when you are tightening it. Take the cover off, and put the chain around the sprocket at the back like a bicycle chain, and then while holding the bar (sometimes a partner helps) parallel to the saw and outward away from the front of the saw, align the bottom parts of the chain inside the bar guide slot all around the bar, holding just enough tension that it doesn't fall off the sprocket or get misaligned in the bar guide. Try moving the chain a little bit to make sure it is not binding on anything. If it doesn't move at all, make sure the chain brake is not on. Once it is moving smoothly, put the cover back on, and begin to hand tighten the nuts. Just before they begin to get tight, eyeball where the chain tensioner pin is in relation to the hole it is supposed to go in. Adjust the chain tensioner screw to move the pin towards the hole. When it pops in the hole, continue tightening the nuts by hand until tight. Now you and your partner can let go of the bar. Adjust the chain tensioner for the proper tension in the chain, not too loose, not to tight, refere to your manual. Finish tightening the cover nuts using the universal wrench to the specifications given in the owners manual.

I have an older McCulloch chain saw- Pro Mac 610. When using the saw the chain will get very tight. If I adjust the chain to the proper tension, make a couple of cuts the chain loosens and must be...


The main reason for a chain to tighten is because it is not getting enough oil to the bar, or too thin an oil is being used, you should see a good spray of oil off the end of the bar when held against a tree stump, if not try adjusting the flow if it has an adjuster.

I cannot find my manual to my 18v cordless chainsaw ccs818. I need directions for putting the chain back on. I would like to download a copy of the manual.


Your manual can be found here:

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

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.

How do I reattach chain after it slipped off


Normal 0 This will be the basic instruction for most common saws. Check that the chain brake is in disengaged position by moving the front hand guard towards the front handle if the saw is equipped with a chain brake on the handle. Loosen the bar nuts on the clutch cover. Loosen tension screw or other adjuster (thumbscrew) to allow the bar to be moved toward the engine. Some saws have this tension adjustment built into the bar. This will provide enough slack in the chain to able to reinstall it. It may be necessary to remove the side cover to gain access to the clutch/gear assembly on the side of the engine if the chain also jumped the gear here. Remove the cover, inspect for any debris or other obstructions in this area. If none, replace the chain back over the drive gear and in the bar groove all the way around the bar. It may be necessary to turn the bar adjuster screw more to provide enough slack in the chain to do this. Once the chain is in place reinstall the cover and bar lock nuts. Snug up the nuts but do not tighten these. Turn the bar/chain adjuster screw to tighten the chain on the bar (take up slack). I usually tighten to a point where there is no slack between the chain and the bottom of the bar and I can still turn the chain easily around the bar by hand. With experience you will get the feel for this chain tension. Once the chain is properly tensioned, tighten the bar lock bolts/ nuts on the side cover. I hope this helps you out.

The chain popped off and I can't get it to fit back on.


Losen the bar mounting nut, then losen the chain tension adjustment screw until the chain can be reinstalled, then tighten the tension screw until the chain just sags 1/8" or so at the center of the bar then retighten the bar mounting nut.

Chain tightens up under power to point engine stalls


If you've already tried to tighten the bar tensioning nuts and the bar keeps "creeping" and gets tighter, that is unusual, as most times the bar should get looser, not tighter.

I would suggest you try a new bar and set of tension nuts, or at the very least a new set of tension nuts first.

The problem might be the tip sprocket has worn out (it needs to be lubed every time you add bar & chain oil to the reservoir in the chainsaw). If the tip sprocket is worn badly, you should replace the bar and inspect the cutting chain for excessive wear on drive side of the chain.

Remember that the slightest bit of dirt can cause rapid wear of the bar and chain and quickly ruin it beyond repair.

I hope you find this helpful and best regards!

I am looking for a manual for remington pole saw, model 108526-01


Here is a link to the instructions to replace a chain and tension it properly... http://12.153.20.74/manuals/113556-01A.pdf. Here is a link to the owner's manual you requested...
http://12.153.20.74/manuals/108539-01L.PDF . If your chain is new they will stretch quickly during their break-in period and will have to be tightened frequently. Once they have been used for a while they will not have to be tightened as often. Sometime if you also need stech and fall off quite a bit. If you need a replacement chain (8SC), you can find them oline at www.masterparts.net. Also, if the guide bar nuts are not tightened securely the bar will not remain in adjustment. Make sure that the guide bar bolts are tightened. I hope this helps!

POULAN CHAIN SAW MODEL 1420 ''Chain came off track


Chain is probably stretched. SAFETY FIRST. Electric saw, make sure power is unplugged. Gas saw, make sure sparkplug wire is removed. Remove the cover where the bar is attached to the saw. U should see an adjustment screw for chain tension and one or more bar lockdown screws. Loosen the lockdown screws and turn the tension adjustment screw to permit the bar to slide back toward the motor. Put the chain back in the bar track all the way around. Adjust the tension screw to tighten chain enough you can't pull it out of the track at any spot. Slide the chain by hand at least one complete revolution feeling for any rough spots. If it moves freely, turn the tension screw enough to tighten the chain properly. Correct tension should allow you to pull the chain appx. 1/16 to 1/8 inch from the bar. Tighten the lockdown screws, replace the cover. Rotate chain by hand a couple of revolutions again to check for smoothness again before starting the saw.
