If its an older saw, it probably worn to the point where the tolerances are so far out that there is too much gap where it needs to be tight. Depending on how much you have in it, it may not be worth fixing.

If its new, I'd take it to a saw shop and have them look at it as you shouldn't have such a problem and it could be a sign of inferior or improper assembly.

Need manual for remington electric chain saw 1,5 hp 14in blade like to know how to tighten loose blade.

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.

How do I tighten the chain on my remington 16in electric chainsaw?

There are two nuts that hold the bar in place. They should be 7/16. You need to loosen these nuts and then you can adjust where the bar sits with a flat bladed screwdriver. It works on the right-y tight-y principle. The adjustment screw should be at the front of the chainsaw right next to the bar. The chain should be able to be lifted from the groove in the bar and snap back into place. Then re tighten the 7/16 nuts and you should be back in business.

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.

Loose chain

Hello David; good luck to you.
I went here and input model 107624-01, followed the directions and when possible selected the IPL. I found pn 108640-01, item 32, NLA @ Remington Power:
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.

Part Number 108640-01 is available here $13.99 - the picture is a complete assembly (cover, bar nuts, spacers and tensioner assembly).
If me I would use the phone number provided, ensure it includes all illustrated parts, 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.
Please re-accomplish my steps to ensure I made no mistake, I do err occasionally (I swear on a stack of UCMJs covers have been NLA for quite a while).

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.

  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. HTH

Same Problem, but Different!

According to the manufacturer...New chains will stretch quickly
during their break-in period and will have to be tightened frequently. Once they have been used for a while they will not have to be tightened as often. Also, it could be the guide bar. If the guide bar nuts (some models may have only one guide bar nut) are not tightened securely the bar will not remain in adjustment. Verify that the guide bar bolts are hand tightened plus one full turn with a wrench. If you have any questions you may want to contact Master Parts at 800-446-1446 or . I hope this helps.

Cannot tighten the chain bar

Make sure the bar is positioned on the bar adjusting pin before you tighten cover. Adjust tension with bar adjusting screw, then tighten bar bolts.
