Falling off - where to? Or just slipping?

Perhaps the indexing adjustments or worn teeth or chain are the cause.

Chain keeps skipping while I'm peddling

This is usually the setting of the rear shift.
Check that the rear d?railleur is properly aligned when it is set to the middle sprocket in the cassette.
The chain must be fed exactly to the middle of the sprocket teeth

Length of 18-speed bicycle chain?

This varies from model to model.
Check that with the largest rear sprocket, and the largest front sprocket that the derailleur lower arm is not pointing straight forward,and smallest front and rear sprockets selected that the the derailleur is not all of the way back, and the chain is loose (Hanging slackly)
The new chain will come with links to spare, and you will have to cut it.

Skipping when applying pressure to pedals

needs a gear adjustment hopefully. it might have a stretched chain along with worn cassette teeth. if you have ridden alot of miles in the smaller gears in the rear you might have worn them out. you would have to replace chain and rear sprockets/cassette

I can't get my chaing to stay at a normal tension. it either gets too tight or too loose! is this a common problem? perhaps a defect? or whats the solution

assuming you have the chain adjuster in the bar adjuster hole. This and the bar nuts will normally keep the bar in place and the chain adjusted. However if your drive sprocket on your saw is worn (deep grooves where the chain rides on the sprocket) it will cause the chain to try and climb over one tooth pulling the bar toward the saw loosening the chain. This can also happen if you put a worn chain on a new sprocket. In the end this overtight or loose condition will lead to failure of your sprocket nose bar. One other way can be the chain, the bar and the sprocket are not all the same pitch.

How to adjust the front mech - changing to the larger wheel requires maximum sweep and a bad change to the smaller ring - when the chain is on the largest sprocket -results in the chain coming off. thank...

Turn one of the two screws on the top so that the mech. (derailer) moves toward the frame a fraction of an inch. Keep adjusting this until it doesn't fall off.

Rear sprocket slips when chain is on the smallest sprockets. when I shift to the two largest sprockets on the back wheel, it peddels or ingages fine

Sprockets are all connected and turn together as a unit. The chain could be skipping over the teeth on individual sprockets.

I suspect severe chain and sprocket wear.

How to use thumb shifters on a 21 speed Schwinn Highplains bike

OK, for a beginner in the world of 18 speed bikes, put the chain on the big sprocket up front, it should be about 46 teeth, make sure it is center and doesn't make noise, if it does, adjust it just a hair either way, now, the rear, put the chain on the big sprocket in the rear, make sure the front didn't start making noise, if it did, adjust it again. You are now ready to take off, in low gear, as you start out, it is easy to pedal, soon you will be peddling air, shift into second gear in the rear only, don't touch the front. Just a little push with the thumb will make it shift, now were going faster, easy peddling, shift into 3rd, then 4th, etc, coming to a stop, down shift the back sprocket back into low gear (big sprocket) and be ready to take off again. Soon you will be shifting that thing like a Ferrari! The front sprocket, will be used for moderate terrain, wheelies, and mountain climbing, that will come later, learn how to shift the rear first. As each gear climaxes, hit the shifter, it will get smoother as you go, and keep the chain quiet, no climbing on the next sprocket or falling out of gear. Hope this helps.

Unit works but chain stops when pressure applyed, what oil goes resevior.

Does the motor continue to run when chain stops? Electric saws usually don't have a clutch, so I would look for badly-worn chain sprocket, or a possible sheared key in the sprocket hub, or a loose mounting nut. Remove the chain and bar, try to turn the sprocket by hand (wear good gloves). There may be some type of overload clutch built into the sprocket.
