Question about Ryobi Factory Reconditioned 10-Inch 18 Volt One+ Cordless Electric Chain Sa

1 Answer

I just bought a Ryobi 18v cordless chain saw. Filled the oil reservoir, pumped etc and used. Left it overnight and now the contents of the reservoir are all over my garage floor. Instructions said to except some leakage but is this normal? It seems to have completely emptied.

Man, I know what you mean. If I am not going to use my saw, I empty my saw oil back into
the oil bottle using a large funnel to catch it all. Then I can put the saw in a large cardboard box
lined w/layers of newspaper in an upright position til next time. Works great! Get back to me if
you need help sharpening that puppie...............dansky66

Excessive use of chain oil

Unlike most bigger gasoline powered chainsaws, the Ryobi RCS2040 electric chainsaw does not have an oil adjuster. The oil pump on it is pretty much a simple mechanism that moves the oil on a "cork screw" -it rotates when your chainsaw runs, then your oil glides out of the reservoir into the tube towards the chain oiler. Amount of oil used will depend on two factors: 1.) Type of oil used. We sell winter grade and summer grade (but we are in Southern California, this doesn't make any difference). Our customers prefer the less tackier ones because it doesn't burn their bars under heavy use and it is less strain on the unit, however this drips out fast. 2.) Integrity of your oil line system, and the size of your reservoir (on your model, it IS small). Our rule of thumb here is that if it drips bar & chain oil, it's working. Well, that is unless it's leaking someplace else other than the bar oiler. Check the oil tube - it should be on the bottom of your chainsaw right on the same side as the oil tank.

Generally, speaking for both mid-sized electric and gas powered saws - 45 minutes of worth of cutting should have your bar and oil tank depleted already. Our contractor customers even have it opened way up.

Bought a Ryobi cs214 at a pawn shop. There is no oil in the holder for smooth running of the machine. Would like to know what kind of oil does the Ryobi CS214 takes.

Just fill the tank with regular bar/chain oil available at home centers, hardware stores, and saw dealers. Don't use old used motor oil or similar. Hope this helps!

Ryobi 18v circular saw owners manual - blade is loose!

Usually there is a button to press that locks the shaft arbor and then you use a wrench to tighten OFTEN is a left hand thread!

Check for lock button behind the blade guard toward the motor.

Battery charges but is dead

The battery isn't any good. The charger is just going through it's regular steps. (I know how it is. I just bought two Ryobi 18 volt batteries for my Ryobi cordless drill, reciprocating saw, flashlight,
trim circular saw, combo set. $60 for two batteries)

Ryobi cordless chain saw leaks oil. Runs fine. When I remove battery and store on shelf...a few days later I notice a puddle of oil. What to do?

The problem is, that it doesn't require 'movement or inertia', to draw/or pump the oil.
It syphons through, naturally.
The only solution is, to not store it with oil remaining in the reservoir.
That's it I'm afraid.
There is no way, to stop it from drawing oil through, without stopping it from working correctly.
Happy, (& safe;) chopping.
& plz don't give me the thumbs up, thanks :)
