Chainsaw won't stay running


You must have dirt in one or more of the carb jets. Remove the carb and clean it with carb cleaner spray and compressed air (compressed air is a must).

Cover won't go on.round metal strip won't fit on round spindle that turns chain.E-235.Do I need the break bar?It doesn't line up either. DB


Sounds like the chain brake was set when you took the cover off. You need to disengage the chain brake (release it) so the round spindle will fit inside. Look for the two parts (one on cover, one on saw) that match up at the base of the chain brake. You won't be able to fit the whole cover on, but if you can line up where the metal triangular gear engages the chain brake, you can give it a snap to disengage it. What I have done in the past is to line up the two parts and push down on the top of the cover where they meet so as much of the gear is in the chain brake release as possible ( I put a knee on it ) and then give a snap to release it. Be careful though, because the cover part is plastic and you don't want to strip that part of the chain brake assembly. Good luck.

I have a 358351610 chain saw and need to find out how to remove the chain


Set the chain brake to off, then remove the fasteners on the right side cover where the chain drives from. This will release the bar which will slide back toward the engine and allow the chain to be removed. Note the direction of the cutting edge of the teeth. Clean everything including the two small oil passages that run from the large holes in the bar out to the chain groove on each edge of the bar. When refitting a new chain, back off on the chain adjustment screw (CCW) a few turns to allow the cover to fit to the bar properly. Fit the chain over the clutch sprocket, then insert the bar to the engine. Work the chain over the bar, then pull the bar outward to tighten the chain. Install the cover and the fasteners finger tight. Make sure the cover fits the bar properly. Tighten the chain adjuster CW so that the chain pulls up to the lower bar edge, but not so tight that you can't turn the chain by hand. Tighten the cover fasteners, then recheck the chain tension. The lower run of chain should be cutting as the chain moves toward the engine. Check the chain oiling by running the saw at speed with the bar tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments. Hope this helps!

Need to replace chain on farm boss with 20 inch bar how do i get to sprocket to get old chain off


Release the chain brake. Remove the nuts/bolts that hold the right hand cover over the drive end of the bar. With the cover off, the bar will slide back toward the engine and allow the chain to be removed. Note the direction of the cutting teeth! Clean the side of the engine where the bar fits to, and the small oil passages in the bar drive end that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each edge. Also clean the entire chain groove. Fit the new chain to the sprocket, then insert the bar and work the chain onto it. Pull out on the bar until the chain fits fairly tight, then fit the cleaned cover over the drive. You may have to change the position of the chain adjustment screw a few turns to allow the adjustment 'tang' to drop into one of the large holes in the bar. Make sure the cover is fully seated, then run the fasteners down finger tight. Turn the chain adjuster screw CW until the chain pulls up to the bottom edge of the bar, but not so tight that you can't turn the chain by hand. Tighten the fasteners fully and recheck chain tension. Start the engine and run the tip of the bar near some cardboard at speed for a moment or two--proper oiling is indicated by a thin line of oil thrown onto the cardboard. Be sure to keep the chain teeth sharp and properly adjust chain tension--don't allow it to droop when cutting. Hope this helps!

Chain is not getting oil


Remove the bar and chain--clean the port area where the bar fits. Run the saw at speed for a few moments--it should ooze oil out of the port. If it doesn't, then you need to check the pump, lines, and tank for plugging or other problems. If the oil came out ok, then clean the bar drive-end small oil passages that run out to the chain groove on each side. Clean the entire chain groove as well. Reassemble the bar and chain (the teeth cut toward you on the lower run), and adjust the chain so that it just pulls up to the bar, but not so tight that you can't pull it by hand. Run the saw tip at speed near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!

How to put chain on remington electric chainsaw


Remove the side cover over the chain drive area. Remove the bar and clean the entire mounting area. Run the saw for a few moments to assure that oil is oozing out of the side port where the bar mounts. Lay the chain out on a bench or table and inspect it for sideways bending, damaged or missing links/teeth, and deformed drive teeth. Inspect the drive sprocket for damage as well. Clean the oil passages in the bar end including the two channels that go out to the chain groove. If all looks well, place the bar back into position and push it back. Fit the chain over the sprocket, then work it over the bar and pull the bar out to tighten the chain. Fit the cleaned cover over the case and make sure the adjustment tang drops into one of the large holes in the bar end--you may have to back off the adjustment screw several turns first. Fit the cover and tighten the mounting hardware finger tight. Make sure the chain cuts toward you on the bottom run. Tighten the adjustment screw until the chain pulls up to the lower bar edge, but still allows the chain to be moved by hand. Tighten the cover hardware and recheck the chain tension. Run the tip of the bar near some cardboard for a few moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil on the cardboard. Make sure the chain is properly sharpened. Hope this helps!

Need instructions on how to replace a chain on Homelite chainsaw


Remove the drive end side cover after releasing the chain brake if it exists and removing the mounting nuts. The bar should slide back and allow the old chain to be removed. Take out the bar and clean it's oil passages including the two small channels that go out to the chain groove. Clean the entire chain groove. Clean the motor case side where the bar fits to. Run the motor for a few moments to see if oil oozes out of the side port. If ok, reinstall the bar and push back. Thread the new chain over the sprocket, then work it over the bar making sure the bottom run of chain cuts toward you. Pull the bar outward. Replace the cleaned cover making sure the adjustment tang drops into one of the large holes in the bar--you may have to back out the adjustment screw several turns. Replace the mounting nuts finger tight and adjust the chain until it pulls the lower run of chain up to the bar, yet you can still pull the chain by hand. Tighten the bar nuts firmly and recheck the chain tension. Check for proper oiling by running the saw tip near cardboard for several moments--it should leave a thin line of oil on the cardboard. Hope this helps!

Can i download a manual for the homelite 33cc chainsaw to get instructions for how to put a new chain on


Release the chain brake. Back off the chain adjustment screw several turns and remove the two large cover nuts. Remove the drive cover, then pull the bar back toward you. This will allow the old chain to be removed. Remove the bar and clean the entire area where the bar mounted. Check the outside edges of the chain groove area for any flaring out of the bar metal due to wear. Use a flat file to cut off this flaring edge (at about 45 degrees) so that nothing projects beyond the bar vertical surface on both sides. Turn the bar upside down to even the wear in the chain groove. Clean the oil holes in the bar end including the small channels that bring oil from large holes out to the chain groove on each side and clean the entire chain groove. Insert the bar, then feed the new chain with the teeth on the lower run cutting toward you, onto the sprocket, then work it over the entire bar and pull the bar out as far as it will go. Install the cover (which has been cleaned too) and run the nuts on finger tight (make sure the adjustment tang dropped into a large hole at the bar rear). Turn the adjustment screw CW until the chain ceases to droop from the lower bar, but the chain can still be pulled by hand. Tighten the large nuts firmly and recheck chain tension--if ok, start the engine and hold the bar tip near a piece of cardboard while the engine runs at speed for several moments--you should get a thin line of oil thrown off onto the cardboard. Hope this helps!

Oil leak when running.


Remove the bar and chain from the engine. Clean the entire area where the bar fits to the case. Start the engine--oil should ooze out of the side port only. If ok, clean the bar drive-end small oil-channels that bring oil to the chain groove on each side of the bar. Also, clean the entire chain groove. Refit the bar, chain, and cover leaving the fasteners finger tight. Turn the chain adjuster CW until the chain comes up to the bar, but not so tight that the chain can't be turned by hand. Tighten the cover fasteners and recheck the chain tension. Start the engine and run the bar tip at speed near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments. Hope this helps!

How do I put chain back on the Wen 14'' chain saw


Remove the chain drive side plate and remove the bar. Clean the drive area and inspect the drive sprocket for excessive wear. Run the motor for a short time to make sure that oil is being pumped out to the bar--is should just ooze out. Clean the bar chain groove and clean the oil holes at the drive end of the bar--especially the two small holes that go from the large oil holes out to the chain groove. Back off the chain adjustment screw several turns, then fit the chain over the sprocket (teeth cut toward you on the bottom) and then insert the bar into the chain and push the bar out till the chain is fairly tight. Apply the side cover and make sure the adjustment tang drops into the large hole at the rear of the bar. Install the mounting nut(s) to hold the plate and bar together. When run-up finger tight, turn the adjustment screw CW until the chain becomes tight enough that it doesn't droop from the bar, yet can be be turned by hand. Tighten the side cover nut(s) and recheck tension. If ok, run the saw for a few moments with the bar tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Keep the chain properly sharpened to reduce the chance of this occurring again. Hope this helps!
