First loosten that 1/2 bolt on the bar--the lookat the bar when it goes into the housing you will see the adjustment screw.Tighten the chain by turning the screw when you get it to where you want it then tighten the 1/2 inch bolt
I don't know on that model number if the chain oiler has any adjustment.If it does then you can cut it down some. If not as long as the saw is cutting good I would not worry much about it cause about the worse thing thats going to happen is it will make a mess.However a lack of oil can cause damage quickly,such as a ruined chain or guide bar. Thanks
Hi there, a couple of features come to mind that may be the cause of your problem.
Firstly, make sure that the saw is unplugged from the power supply.
The chain brake is active and wont allow sprocket movement and hence the chain. If necessary, pull the front guard (in front of the front handle) back until it clicks.
Electric saws generally have an additional motor-stop feature built into the trigger mechanism which is deactivated when the trigger is squeezed. So, in order to move the chain along the bar the trigger needs to be squeezed releasing the motor-stop. A tip - wear gloves when handling chains and move the chain towards the bar tip ie in the direction of the cutters - if the chain suddenly stops you wont remove several layers of skin in the process ! better still use a screwdriver against the back of one of the cutters and move it forwards - there should be some resistance and there should be no slack chain on the underside of the bar. Hope this helps.
