Depends on what model, however there are two main locations for the adjuster screw, the most common is at the very front of the saw, running inline with the guide bar , you may well have to clean the dirt and saw dust from the front of the saw to see it,it will be close to the inside edge of the bar, it will be a normal screw driver head screw, turn clockwise to tention the chain, the other type will be in the side cover, at right angles to the saw, again it will be a normak screw driver head, turn clockwise to increase the chain tention.

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.

What kind of oil do i use to maintain the chain on the saw?


Hello there, I just used 30 weight non detergent on my Still gas saw years ago.Mainly because it got used so fast.You might check your local bicycle shop cause they have stuff that stays on the chain better($10.00 and up).Just keep the chain sharp and don't overload it. Most any hardware store will carry some kind of chain oil.You could call a saw shop and ask them as well.I burnt up the plastic chain adjuster once because the chain was to tight ,had plenty of oil but chain was to tight.About 1/8 gap or a little less at the bottom the bar.Unplug , wear gloves and pull the chain around the bar to check for binding. THANK YOU for choosing FixYa.com.

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.

Where can I find a replacement bar and chain for my saw?


Remove the bar and chain from the saw. Take these parts to a saw servicing dealer who can match the bar and chain. Be sure to clean the area where the bar mounts. Run the saw for a few moments--the oil port in the side of the case should ooze out oil. Install the bar first, then thread the chain onto the sprocket, then work it over the bar. Pull the bar out until the chain is fairly tight, then fit the cover, but leave the mounting nut(s) finger tight. Turn the chain adjuster until the chain doesn't droop from the bar, but still be able to turn the chain by hand. Tight the mounting nut(s) and recheck tension. Run the saw at full speed with the tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the cardboard. Hope this helps!

Chain fell off poll, trying to figure out how to put it back on.


On the side of the saw where the bar (what the chain goes around/rides on) where it connects to the saw there are a couple nuts. Loosen them up, push the bar back towards the saw to put slack in the chain, wrap the chair around the bar making sure the bottom of the chain is in the groove on the bar and tip of the bar, then push the bar forwards away from the saw to take out the slack in the chain. Hold it tight and tighten up the two nuts. Depending on your model of pole saw, you may have only one nut and a plastic guide that keeps it straight. Same concept though. Loosen the nut, push bar in, put chain on, pull bar out, tighten nut.
If you've ever done it on a bicycle, it's the same concept. Loosen nuts on back wheel, push tire forwards and chain gets loose. Pull it backwards and chain gets tight.

Chain came off ,need to know how to put it back on!!!


On the chain saw there should be a panel held on by two screws or nuts where the bar and chain is attached. Remove the two screws or nuts and the panel and you will expose the chain and sprocket. Loop the chain around the sprocket and bar. Put the bar with the chain around the sprocket back on the saw, reinstall the cover with the two screws/nuts, but do not tighten too tight.(You will want to be able to move the bar with the chain.) Then pull the bar away from the saw to tighten the chain, once the chain it tight, then you will retighten the screws or nuts to lock the bar and chain in place. Be sure you lube the chain and bar with "Bar Oil" before starting to put the saw into service. Good Luck...I hope this helped Please rate me, Thanks

Ryobi 540A need manual runs slow/ chain too tight?


Actually, I own one of these battery operated Ryobi chain saws too. It is normal for the saw to run slow. Remember it is battery powered, not gas, so its not going to be a high rpm saw. Be patient whit it, and you'll get about 4-6 cuts per battery. I take mine camping. It sure is nice not having to listen to a two-stroke while relaxing in the woods! Dont plan on cutting lots of stuff, either, or you'll burn up the motor. This thing works great for very mild workloads.

Unable to tighten chain .. too droopy.


There are usually two 7/16" nuts on the side of the chain saw. Loosen those a little first, then turn the screw to tighten the chain - not too tight or you'll stretch out the chain when you use it. Don't forget to re-tighten the two nuts before using the chainsaw.

Their not the best saws but make sure the nuts holding the bar and cover on are tight after adjusting chain sometimes improper cutting will continue to kick chain off bar.
