Have used my Baumr Ag sx62 once and it leaks bar oil. Perhaps I didn’t assemble it properly? Also there is a white plastic threaded sprocket-looking thing that came with the tools – I haven’t fitted at all – where does this go?
Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
The white plastic thing you talk about is spare impeler for the chain oil pump, but you should find it is a different thread which will slow down the oil flow, well it did for me. i have owned one of these saws for three years now and it still goes like a freight train. before you put them to use you must make sure the carby is set right. because if its running to lean or not enough oil in the fuel, Yes it will seize every time. All you have to have is a little bit of an understanding in small engine mechanics. Yes they do leak a little oil, just fill it when you want to use it. a chainsaw should use one tank of fuel to one tank of oil, no more than two tanks of fuel to one tank of oil.

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 :

This can be caused by normal variations in air pressure that occur due to changes in temperature throughout the day and night. This is particularly present in areas that experience more drastic changes in day/night temperature.
The oil tank vent: The breather valves that allow small amounts of air into the oil tank to maintain pressure have tiny holes in them. These holes can be clogged by the sawdust and debris that is often thick in the air when chainsaws are used, so checking them is important.
The oil must be of a viscosity that adheres to the chain without being too thick or too thin. If you`ve chosen the wrong oil for the machine, that may be the reason it`s leaking from the bottom. Husqvarna strenuously warns users to never use waste oil in a chain saw.
Naturally, the chain of your chainsaw will need to be oiled well to function perfectly. To make sure that it functions well, grab some WD-40 Multi-Use-Product. WD-40 works great for both – rust prevention and lubrication.
Oil leaking from a Chainsaw is a common occurrence and does not signify an issue with your chainsaw. Oil is pumped through grooves around the chain bar to ensure the chain and bar are lubricated correctly. Therefore it`s common and expected for a chainsaw to have oil left in these grooves after use.
Common causes of oil leaks include degraded engine gaskets, leaks from the oil pan, or improper or worn out seals. An oil leak also can be caused by a loose or missing oil pan drain plug or deteriorated valve cover gaskets.
If you run a chainsaw without bar oil, it`s likely that the chain will heat up and eventually break. This can cause extensive damage to the chainsaw and may even require a new chain and bar. It`s imperative that you use the correct amount of bar oil.
Bar oil itself lasts indefinitely; it`s the containers holding the oil that determines the shelf life. Bar oil will stay in most bottles for between 3 and 7 years. The oil base determines the length of time; synthetic oils will last the longest, whereas mineral and plant-based oils have a shorter shelf life.
There is no need to drain the bar oil but if you keep the saw in a place like an outbuilding that gets very hot during the day it may leak a little oil. The fuel is different.
If you run a chainsaw without bar oil, it`s likely that the chain will heat up and eventually break. This can cause extensive damage to the chainsaw and may even require a new chain and bar. It`s imperative that you use the correct amount of bar oil.
Without lubricant, the speed at which the chain moves over the chainsaw bar can cause some serious friction. A slowed-down chain and excessive fuel burning mean there`s a lot of friction between your bar and chain, which means a lot of heat is being produced that could do major damage to your saw.

Ms 170 leaks bar chain oil out bottom, no oil on chain
ANSWER : Your clutch drum bearing has gone bad, letting the clutch drum to move around and cut into the oiler behind it, so now it just pumps the oil out that hole. You have to get that fixed to use the saw, otherwise you’re going to cause catastrophic damage to the saw very soon.

Bar and chain oil leaks when not running
ANSWER : This is normal as the pump creates a pressure vacuum to pull the oil through it to the bar. If you are concerned about this, open and then close the oiler cap. This will relieve the pressure much like in a caulking gun or gen. purpose pump sprayer. Hope this helped.

Bar oil leaks out when not in use – Husqvarna , No.455 Rancher, 20" Gas – Powered Chainsaw
ANSWER : There will always be an amount of bar oil leakage when the saw is not in use, this is due to leakage through the tank breather, and oil caught up in areas of the saw which drain when the saw is stood, if there is not enough saw dust to dry the oil up ( this can happen useing long bars, but only cutting small logs ), if the oil leakage is not excessive i would suggest this is normal. The oiling is a constent loss system, so is not sealed as well as a car sump for example.

Bar chain oil leaking into case when not in use
ANSWER : If you store it somewhere other than a climate controlled building , the changes in temperature can cause the oil to expand out of the saw a little each time the temp. goes up.

I have a husqvarna 137 chainsaw. The problem is with the bar oil. When the saw runs oil is flowing but where the rubber corner piece which allows the oil to flow out of appears to be just dripping the oil straight out. It looks like it should fill a small reservoir behind the metal plate and the oil then moves upwards where the chains drags the oil through the oil hole on the bar which is moving outwards as in the top chain on the bar. However the chain-brake area is just getting messy with oil splattering all over and the bar not actually getting oiled. I have fitted a new metal plate to see if the corner of the original was not sealing properly but that has not helped. The bar holes are clean. Any suggestions as I can’t see what it could be?
ANSWER : It’s the rubbers. I had the same problem with my 137 and 141. The rubbers shrink over time and the oil never makes it up the channel. The replacement part is one piece and less prone to leaking than the original 2 piece design.
