Question about Makita DCS6401 20 20",64cc Chainsaw 2 Cycle
Hello there. My chainsaw bar and chain lubrication is not working. There does not appear to be any blockages???? The saw is 12mths old and has done about 10hrs use. Any thoughts????
Ryobi boasts a two year warranty. Have you contacted anyone about a warrantied repair?
An IPL (expanded parts list) for your saw with any oil system detail can be found here:
https://www.gardnerinc.com/recons/disclaimer-lg.php - Agree; Choose “Product Line”; “Select OEM” & “Select Catalog” both to “Homelite Consumer Products”. A drop down list appears; self explanatory from here.
The numbers Homelite & Ryobi use don't match the numbers everyone posts. A careful inspection of your saw should find something that matches.
Oil System Plugged.
Remove the clutch cover, bar and chain. Clean the oiler hole and channel. Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up. If yes reassemble your saw.
If no a blunted, hooked piece of wire can be used to pull the hose in the oil tank out. I recommend the filter be replaced. Work your way through the linkage cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (clutch is probably left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly. GL
