SOURCE: Guide bar nut loose (stripped stud). How do I

I hope the nut is stripped and the stud is OK. Try to gently wedge something below the nut and with a socket attempt to slowly unscrew it.
Remington IPLs can be found here:
They do not use model names. Under "Products" click "Chain Saws"; find an image matching your model and click it. Some list a manual that includes an IPL some do not. If no IPL is listed the only place to get help is the "Repair Center" nearest you for parts. I doubt a bad stud can economically be replaced.
If the stud is still good NAPA Auto Parts can assist you to find a replacement nut. HTH

Hello Peggy: Ohio? I have a cousin there.
Back to your problem. RemingtonPower is no longer in production. The name has recently been purchased by MTD. It appears they are offering a few selected parts. A cover to fit your saw is now available.

I went here and input model M15014AS, followed the directions and when possible selected the IPD. I found Item 28, pn 107711-01, is NLA everywhere.
The "Sprocket Cover (containing the bushing)" is available "Item 6, pn 113007-01 - USE REPLACEMENT PART # 116675-01, NLA @ Remington Power but is available @ Please check my work below.
Type "YourModelNumber" into the "Search for your unit by Model:" window, then click search.
Click the “YourModelNumber” - Remington Electric Chain Saw "View Model" link.
Click “View Owners Manual” or "View Illustrated Parts Diagram" link.
Type "YourPartNumber" into the “Search for your parts by Part #:” window, then click search.
pn 116675-01, Availability: In stock, $15.60
If me I would use the phone number provided, ensure it will fit your saw, it includes the bushing, order with a credit card (recover your investment much easier), get the name of the service person helping me and the name of her/his supervisor.
Once I had it hand and it fit I would likely apply some double sided tape to preclude its loss again.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.
Thank You for using FixYa.

Trying to put chain and saw together

If the saw has a chainbrake make sure it is de activated by pulling the hand guard fully to the top handle, you should hear an audible clip when it locks, remove the the bar nut/nuts and remove the side cover, if the chain adjuster is in the cover screw it right back, if the adjuster is in the crankcase screw it right back, place the guide bar onto the bar bolts, loop the chain over the sprocket and lay it around the guide bar with the cutters on the top of the bar facing away from the saw, if the adjuster pawl is in the crankcase locate it into the adjuster hole in the guide bar, now re fit the side cover, if the adjuster pawl is in the cover make sure it locates into the adjuster hole in the guide bar, re fit the bar nut/nuts finger tight, screw the adjuster up until the chain sits snuggley around the whole guide bar, pull the chain around the bar manually with a gloved hand, this will make sure it turns freely and is correctly located in the sprocket, hold the end of the guide bar up and tighten the nut/nuts

When using the saw, the chain doesn't stay tight on the bar.

Should be a nut on the side of chainsaw that covers the chain, sometimes all that is needed is to loosen nut them pull outwards on chain bar and retighten nut. Chain should have some play in it so dont make the chain hug the bar tightly. There is also an adjustment screw next to the bar that will tighten and loosen the chain but is used for small adjustments only.

My new Remington Branch Wizard was taken from the box today and, the chain installed, hooked up, motor runs fine, but the chain won't turn. What's wrong with it?

Take it back. Remington Power is no longer in production anyway. You will eventually need parts that you will not be able to find.

Is the chain excessively tight? Remove the Sprocket cover, bar and chain. Actuate the switch momentarily while watching the sprocket gear (item 11).
Did it rotate? If no there is likely a failure in the gear train inside the power head (not repairable). If it rotates I suspect the chain was improperly installed or over tightened.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa and Good Luck. HTH

My motor and the circular gear inside goes around but the chain will not go around it apprears to get stuck in the guide. I have cleaned the guide and soaked the chain in oil overnight but still doesn't...

Try bolting the bar to the case without the guard cover in place so that you can observe what is happening that the chain sprocket is not being driven. There may be a large spring that has broken or relaxed it's tension to prevent driving the sprocket. Be sure to keep your fingers out of the way when the chain starts moving. Good luck!

Chain keeps falling off bar afterwhen saw is

Reinstall the chain. Do NOT connect power. Mark one link (chalk, crayon, etc.) wear gloves and try to rotate the chain one complete revolution. Is this possible? No - remove the chain and remove burrs from the sides of the drive links with a flat file.
3893c9d.jpg An IPL for your saw can be found here:
Enter "111409" in the "Search for your unit by Model #:" window. Click search. Click "View Model" Click "View Illustrated Parts Diagram"

Yes - inspect the sprocket gear (KEY NO. - 11) pn 111363-01 new pn 122520-01 NLA, is it deeply grooved or perhaps worn through?

I'm going to get smacked as I have so many times before. The only thing RemingtonPower is producing today is unhappy customers. Replacement parts are exhausted. we aren't affiliated and had nothing to do with their decision to stop production.

Burrs on the chain or a defective sprocket are the most likely causes of your problem. If the gear is bad, there are no replacement parts available and I cannot help you further except to recommend you purchase a name brand replacement. Select a company you think will have replacement parts when you need them sometime in the future.
Chain adjustment
  1. Make sure the chain brake is off (gloves will protest your fingers).
  2. If necessary, loosen the bar nuts that are clamping the clutch cover in place (or whatever holds the clutch cover and bar on). They don't need these really loose - finger tight will do.
  3. Ease the tension adjustment until the chain is obviously loose.
  4. Using one hand, hold the nose of the bar up.
  5. While holding the nose up, adjust the tensioner so that the center of the chain just touches the underside of the bar, add a touch more.
  6. Continue holding the nose of the bar up & tighten up the bar nuts / bolts / quick-release system.
Your rating of our help is the only payment we get for this service. I provided as much help as humanly possible. Punishing me for your disappointment with RemingtonPower isn't fair to me. I hope I answered your question. Thanks. A few kind words would be appreciated.

The chain on my Remington electric saw keeps jumping the sprocket. Solution? Thanks.

Depending to what model you have, the Sprocket cover tab (located on the round part of the sprocket cover) isn’t inserted into the saw body tab slot. Or your cahin is not tensioned properly. According to the manufacturer... "The adjusting block on the adjusting screw isn’t inserted into the adjusting hole on the guide bar. Reinstall and align the sprocket cover by first removing the sprocket cover from the saw. Turn tensioning screw on the sprocket cover counter-clockwise until it stops. Pull guide bar away from saw body to remove slack from chain. Insert sprocket cover tab into saw body tab slot and lower sprocket cover into guide bar bolt. Finger tighten guide bar nut onto guide bar bolt. Slowly push guide bar toward saw body until adjusting block on the adjusting screw drops into round adjusting hole on the guide bar. Securely tighten guide bar nut after properly tensioning saw chain." If these tips do not work, you may need a new chain. You can order an new chain on-line at I hope this helps you!

How do you adjust chain tension? I have the 16" Remington electric chain saw, and the chain will not stay tight; it slips off the rear sprocket as soon as I try to use it. I don't feel everything is...

Here is a link to instructions for EL-8 series saws ... For series LNT-2, LNT-3,EL-1, and EL-7 according to the manufacturer... "WARNING: The cutting edges on the chain are sharp. Protective gloves should be used when touching the chain. Unplug the chain saw from the power supply. Allow chain to cool. Loosen the guide bar nuts until they are finger tight. Ensure the adjusting block is in the adjustment hole in the guide bar. Turn the chain tensioning screw clockwise to increase tension. Turn the chain tensioning screw counterclockwise to decrease tension. Check for proper chain adjustment by pulling down on the chain at the bottom center of the guide bar. You should see no more than a ⅛ inch gap between the chain cutting links and the guide bar. The guide (or drive) links should not come out of the guide bar grooves. The chain should rotate freely around the guide bar. If it does not, chain tension should be decreased. When the chain is properly adjusted, tighten the guide bar nuts securely." On the M series if your chain keeps slipping off your sprocket... The Sprocket cover tab (located on the round part of the sprocket cover) isn’t inserted into the saw body tab slot. I hope this helps you!
