Saw is reconditioned at factory and only used by me one time.

SOURCE: Chain saw starts with starting fluid only but will not run.

Hi lwhssh:
Suggest you drain the fresh gas/oil and add a fresh batch but first add a gas stabilizer to your batch of gas/oil in the storage container. You will probably still need to use starting fluid for a few times When 2 cycle engines sit for a long period of time, the gas/oil mixture undergoes a change and tends to leave a residue on the delicate parts of the carb. The gas stabilizer will help that.

I always do the following for 2 cycle engines when I put them up for the winter. Empty the gas container on the device and then start it to use up any gas left in the fuel lines and carb. this keeps any residue from forming.

Hope this helps Good luck Loringh PS please leave a rating if appropriate. Thanks

SOURCE: How do I change the primer bulb on my Echo CS-3000

The IPL for an Echo CS-3000 is here:

See page 8. There is no shop manual offered, you will need to interpret the pictures. Didn't look to difficult. GL

SOURCE: Replace the oil pump in a Echo CS4400 Chain Saw

An IPL for a CS4400 Chainsaw can be found here (there are multiple IPLs, please ensure this is your saw):
EchoUSA
http://www.echo-usa.com/documentation.asp?Model=cs4400&lang=E
There is no sigle illustration of all oiler components, they appear on multiple illustrations.
From the IPL it has an outboard clutch, it appears the oil pump is behind it. Use this a guide for clutch removal:
R² Drive Link Outboard Clutch by Drivelink.blogspot.com
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdqkIuVNUQc

  1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed. Poulan (Craftsman, Jonsered, Husky) clutch removal tool part number 530031112 if needed, is under $5 from many sources (look at the visible area between the weights if 2 small round sockets are visible you need the tool).
  2. There are metal piston stops available, when square (almost never) with the piston top these work well, if not square they have been known to punch through the piston. I suggest a length of nylon rope (nothing left behind) be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and damage the piston as it rises.
  3. Everyone I have ever removed had a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).
You can reply below with any questions if you need additional help. I hope you found this most helpful.

SOURCE: 16" Electric Chain Saw: what kind of oil is used for electric chain saw...

I assume you are asking about the oil for the chain. Any good quality "Bar and Chain Oil" will do fine. Do not use motor oil you use in your car engine as it will not properly lube the chain and will result in quicker dulling and early demise of the chain.

You can get the "Bar and Chain Oil" at most hardware stores or Farm Supply stores.

My Ryobi 40cc chainsaw saw runs strong, but the chain binds and will not turn. The safety break is not engaged and the chain is not tighten to tight. I think it maybe the sprocket but it does not look...


If your chain has recently jumped off the bar while running, your chain may have "burs" on the drive links (part of the chain that rides in the bar groove). These burs will make the chain rub the inside of the rails and thus bind the chain in the groove. You can file these off with a flat file if there aren't very many, but you may need to just replace the chain. You can find files, bars, chains & sprockets for your saw at PartsBuggy.com.

What is gas mixture?


50:1 will work fine, but mix the fuel and oil (a modern synthetic made for saw use) in it's own can, and be sure to shake the can thoroughly just before filling the saw each time. At these lean ratios, proper mixing is very important to protect the engine. Hope this helps!

Hi there,i m looking for 16"chain ryobi 40cc chain saw


Take your saw or old chain to a shop that works on small motors and they can make one . Take it to lowes and try one of theirs. They have them to fit any brand saw. Sears, Home Depot or a small hardware store.

What is the gas to oil ratio for the Ryobi 10532 18 inch chain saw?


Fuel/Oil Mixture
  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL supplier's recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 8oz/2gal - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (Stihl 2.6oz/1gal)
  2. Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few months. Anything over 6 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH

Ryobi 540A need manual runs slow/ chain too tight?


Actually, I own one of these battery operated Ryobi chain saws too. It is normal for the saw to run slow. Remember it is battery powered, not gas, so its not going to be a high rpm saw. Be patient whit it, and you'll get about 4-6 cuts per battery. I take mine camping. It sure is nice not having to listen to a two-stroke while relaxing in the woods! Dont plan on cutting lots of stuff, either, or you'll burn up the motor. This thing works great for very mild workloads.

MY RYOBI 14 INCH SAW IS OVER-OILING AND SPRAYING OIL ALL OVER THE PLACE , IS THERE AN AJUSTMENT?


At the bottom of the saw you should find the oil pump. There will be a flat head screw that adjusts it. Be sure that you are using a good quality bar oil and not a motor oil. Adjust it in small increments. You can easily burn the bar and chain if it doesn't get enough bar oil.
