Ryobi Chainsaw - PCN 4545

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????

    No oil reaching chain. Have the saw half apart now, but still have no idea how to get down to the oil pump/gear area.

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:
Homelite/Ryobi.com
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

PCN 4545 Chainsaw I unfortunately used unleaded petrol instead of 2 stroke, now can not get saw to start, is it game over for carberette?


Hi, it won't affect the carby which I'm afraid is the only good news. It will need a new piston and probably a cylinder. Depending on the price of these parts to suit your model it may not be worth repairing. Sorry Phil.

My Ryobi chainsaw PCN 4545 overheated


Sawdust/dirt build-up helps cause this situation. Usually, the band is deformed so that it drags. The melted case parts may or may not need replacement, but will likely need trimming. The band usually does as it is difficult to remove the small bends in it. After repair, make sure the chain turns freely by hand. Set and reset the brake several times to make sure it works correctly. The clutch outer drum rarely deforms when this happens. Hope this helps!

Hi, I have a Ryobi PCN 4545 petrol Chainsaw that i have owned for about 4 years with little use. I went on a Chainsaw users course over the weekend and took the saw on the instructors recommendation....

You probably don't want to hear this, but there have been many many problems with this unit. It is now, discontinued, Personally, I would get another one, any other one. To have any chance of any type of repair, you must get a service and repair manual. I have searched extensively but have been unable to find any manuals other than the User, one supplied.

How to change the oil pump on the chainsaw model pcn 4545


Patrick;
I could not find anything matching the number you provided. I did find an electric saw "RY43006 Chain Saw" here (follow the instructions):
Homelite/Ryobi.com (authorized parts supplier)
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 do not match the numbers everyone posts. A careful inspection of your saw should find something that matches.

I think with the IPL as a disassembly guide replacement is pretty easy. There are a couple of hoses listed, I suspect one of them failed rather than the pump.

If this is not your saw please provide some different numbers (reply below) and I will try again. Good Luck. HTH

Need to know what kind of oil to put in ryobi chainsaw


If it is an electric chainsaw (not gas powered) then the only oil you need is chainsaw bar oil, which lubricates the chain and bar during use (self feeding system). This goes into the chamber at the top of the saw. You can buy chain/bar oil for chainsaws at any good hardware store or outdoor power equipment store. You can use any brand of chain bar oil, most are pretty good.

If it is a gas/petrol operated model, I will need to know the model number to advise on that.

Same problem as olliee69


Bar oil is delivered to the chain threw a port, usually at the top side of the bar. I recommend removing the bar, apply air pressure to the tank that holds the bar oil. It may flush out debris in this port.
