There is a slide bolt on the side of all chain saws that allow tightning of the chain. You loosen this bolt and slide the chain bar forward until you can just slide a dime under the chain and the bar. It may take a couple of adjustments as the chain stretches a little after it gets warmed up by the friction of the bar.

    I had the same problem but there's still too much slack after adjusting the bar as far as it will go.

  • Norman Worley May 16, 2011

    If you cannot adjust any more, then the chain has stretched too far, and has to be replaced. This is quite unusual as the wear on the cutters usually (sharpning) dictates the replacement before this happens.

How do you tension remington electric chain saw


The most common would likely be by releasing the chain/blade assembly lock nuts (likely to be two) on the outside of and at the the drive end of the chain, or by first removing a cover over this part of the chain assembly to access these nuts. Next, there could be a tensioner screw assembly located between the inner side of the the saw blade and the motor or possibly at the back of the chain/blade assembly. Screwing this screw in the appropriate direction will tension the blade. After all slack is taken up on the chain (without over-tightening or stressing the chain!), re-tighten the two previously loosened lock nuts that secure the blade in place and replace the cover, if removed. This would most likely be the process for fitting a new chain as well!

I have an Remington 3.25 (Peak Hp) 16"/40, 6 cm electric chain saw, And I have just a few questions 1.) Does it take oil/gas or just oil and if so what kind. 2.) How would I tighten the chain, its...


It uses oil only to lubricate the chain. The type of oil in not critical although special chain saw oil is available. If you use anything but chain saw blade oil, make sure that it is a light oil, both in viscosity and in colour because it is a total loss system and dark or dirty oil can become very messy. The chain adjustment is on the body at the end of the blade, it actually moves the blade in or out to set the chain tension. The chain should be tensioned that when it is pulled at the bottom, the guides of the chain should not quite come out of the slot in the blade. If the chain is too tight it overheats the blade and stretches the chain.

Chain came off and it is too long and can't get it back together.


I take it to mean the exact same chain that was on there before now appears to be too long. Obviously, this is a clue. These things don't stretch.
All chain saws will have the chain get loose with use. You should be checking this and make an adjustment before it gets so loose that it comes off which is very dangerous and can cause injury.
When it appears too long, I can think of two things that may be happening.
1. It really is too long and you need to find the adjustment screw near the base of the blade and screw it in (with a long screw driver or the tool that came with the unit when you bought it) which pushes the chain saw blade further out and tightens the chain. Usually, to get the blade back on, I have to tighten the screw and loosen the chain and then make it tight again after everything is together, so experiment with the process of tightening and loosening the screw. (Note, the loosening and tightening assumes that the nuts on the big bolts that hold on the blade have been loosened to allow the blade to slide. Make sure this loosening was done first.) 2. The chain may have slipped of the sprocket gear that drives the chain. If you have not taken the blade off you can't see this gear well and might not notice. Disassemble the blade and put it back together seeing that the chain is properly seated. Don't screw the bolts tight before you adjust the tension in the blade as in my remarks above. Tighten the bolts well, as the final step.

MY tension screw nut that locks the chain bar keeps bending on my Remington m30016aw. Any alternatives for that nut?


The nut may be cracked, like mine is. While I am trying to get a new one, I found I can still tighten the blade by laying the saw with the blade securing nuts up. Loosen the two nuts 1/2 turn. There is a small hole in the bar right near the case. Use a small screw driver placed in the hole and pry against the case to force the bar out and tighten the chain. While prying out on the bar, tighten the two nuts.

How do I tighten the chain on my Remington 14 in. 2 hp electric chain saw? Have used tightening screw, does do anything. Loosened the blade bolts trying to move the blade out slightly. Doesn't work...


Mitch if you attempted what is in the manual, and it is not working we would have to see and touch the saw to determine what has failed. If you loosened the bar bolts before trying the adjuster and it did not work, I suggest a trip to a local saw shop.

Chain is off and I am not sure how to get the adjusting screw in


You don't need the adjusting screw, if it is missing, you can still run the saw. Get the chain straightened out on the blade, with the cover on if you can, keep the cover bolt loose, put the blade in a vise, pull on the saw and tighten the cover bolt at the same time, make sure the chain moves, as long as it is not dangling down real loose, you should be all set. My adj screw bit the dust years ago, so did the safety bar. Still works great.

Replacing Remington Electric chain saw blade


Where the bar meets the body of the saw there is an adjustment lug that will either push the bar outward tightening the chain or may be retracted allowing slack in the chain. When backed off (loosened) sufficiently, the chain may be removed for replacement. In order to use this feature, however, there are two bolts that secure the bar to the body that must be loosened prior to any adjustment and tightened bach up after making adjustments to the chain. The above will be enough to remove and replae the chain. If you are taking off the bar (that the chain runs on), you will need to remove the two bolts that were just loosened for the chain adjustment (above).
