Electric Chain Saw

I bought a Remington electric chain saw M30016AS from Menard last fall and the chain kept coming loose. Menard just exchanged for a new one. I did not use it until lately, but new saw had the same problem with the . I think it is due to the little notch/bar holding the chain saw bar is not strong enough. It is maybe only 1/2 inch x 1/4 inch. The company is bought by MTD (?) and it does not honor the warrenty. How can they do that? Is it legal? Where can I get service?
Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
Good luck with MTD. They buy assets (various companies) but leave the liabilities (warranty) in the dust. As you should know, all those details are discussed in the agreements between the companies. If you really want to know and the both companies are publically traded, you could find the answer by reading all the small print public companies are required to disclose to share holders. Forget a legal remedy.

Is your bar (the thing the chain rides on) properly adjusted? When it is properly adjusted, the chain should ride freely on the bar but not hang away from the bar at any place. If you pull up on the chain, when you let go it should snap sharply back into the bar. Yet, it should move freely when you grab it with your GLOVED fingers.

Never work on a chain saw if the saw is (1) plugged in (2) the spark plug is connected. Chain saws don’t care at all what they cut!

How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

If your electric chainsaw won`t start, try examining it for these issues: Not pressing the safety button at the same time as the trigger. Tripped electrical breaker (for corded chainsaws) Frayed or damaged electrical cord (for corded chainsaws)
It ultimately comes down to the factors listed above (especially maintenance). That being said, you can expect a quality chainsaw to last you at least 10 years or more. But if you take care of it, I know people who have saws that have lasted 20-30 years and even longer.
