SOURCE: chain not engaged when the chainsaw is running and brake is off

NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART....with the clutch cover, chain and bar removed, start the saw. with a gloved hand, hold the clutch and squeeze the throttle. if the sprocket engages/turns...its not the clutch.

let me know what you find.

SOURCE: ryobi gas chainsaw- chainsaw brake is stuck on. How do I release

You just have to pull the lever back, like it was on the saw, until it clicks/unlocks. It may be hard to do, but thats what has to be done.

SOURCE: wen electric chainsaw chain gets loose

There is a nut on the rail that the chain runs on. You can loosen it, pry the blade out so chain is snug, than tighten it while you are prying.

Use regular bar oil available almost everywhere, not motor oil.

Hello, I am trying to find a user manual for my husband's latest bargain find...a Wen 10'' electric chainsaw - Model 5010 - has Hornet Mark 1 on label - also, where can I go to purchase extra chains for...

How about one slightly newer (6018)? I was not able to find a match for your model. Wagner purchased Wen some time back and have since stopped production.
If you take your existing chain to a local chainsaw seller/mechanic a replacement can be fabricated. No chain? take the entire saw and bar.
Your can create a part number here:

I came up with "91VG041G" HTH

Where can I find a new chain bar adj screw for WEN 3818 gas saw?

Most older chainsaw adjustments are visible when the saw is viewed from the end of the bar back to the saw. More modern ones are near the bar nuts (side). Lou

Wen electric chain saw manual, where do I find one on line?

Wagner purchased Wen long ago and no longer offer chainsaws. Try these, if they can't help we can't either.

Wen electric chain saw -is it doa?

Are you pressing the trigger lock with your thumb before you pull the trigger? That's a safety feature to prevent accidental sawing.

There's not a sensor for the oil, but you don't want to run the saw dry. It takes a special bar/chain oil which is thicker than motor oil.

FYI... if you look for a manual on the web, search for "Wagner chainsaw" because Wagner bought the chainsaw business from Wen.
