Question about Remington Garden
Trying to tighten the chain, I had to remove the guide bar. The manual says (twice) "Make sure adjust- ing block is in oval adjusting hole on guide bar." (## 5 & 7 on p 6). However, this is impossible. The block is a round nut, which doesn't extend beyond the adjusting plate housing, and the guide bar therefore cannot come into contact with it. How do I handle this. Link to the manual: http://www.remingtonchainsaw.com/manuals/Chainsaws/model_100015_manual_107051-01b.pdf
The adjusting block is a round nut... it used to have a pawl sticking out from it, but the pawl has been broken off. The pawl sticks through the adjustment plate and into the bar so that when you turn the adjustment screw clockwise, it will pull the bar out to tighten the chain. I had the same problem when I loaned my saw and the chain came into contact with a chain link fence breaking the pawl off of the adjustment nut. Go online and order a new adjustment nut... they shouldn't cost more that a few bucks.

Testimonial: "That's useful, thanks. But it still seems it takes about 5 times as long to re-tighten the chain, as it does for the chain to work loose. I have literally never (it's newly bought) used it for more than a minute, before it got loose. Any suggestions?"

The honest answer to will any 14" chain fit is no! It is "YES" if it has 50 drive links, a 3/8 pitch, and a gauge of 0.050 will; provided you are using the original bar or a suitable substitute. Manufacturers almost never tell you these numbers. They want you to purchase replacements from them. Any merchant, that sells chain, given (50, 3/8, 0.050) this information can fabricate a replacement chain and unless you tell them differently it will most likely be a green chain. A local merchant will save shipping and handling fees. I enjoyed this exercise in painting with text. I hope you have a better understanding of your question. Thank You.
If you go here:
Oregon Bar & Chain Selector
Input "Remington; LNT-2; 14"; All; All; All"
It tells you there are 50 drive links (the important part of length, ±1 drive link may still be 14” but will not fit); it has a pitch of 3/8 (there are other pitches available); it has a gauge of 0.050 (0.043 & 0.058 also common). If you read the Triangular information tags you will see different chains have more or less chance of kickback. I will not purchase anything with a green tag but have been using chainsaws since 1980 and wear full PPE. I hope this clarifies this part of your question.
A much better Remington explanation of chain installation.
My explanation/example (gas but similar). The repair is the same; burrs are often created when the chain comes off at speed.

Hello David; good luck to you.
I went here and input model 107624-01, followed the directions and when possible selected the IPL. I found pn 108640-01, item 32, NLA @ Remington Power:
• Type "YourModelNumber" into the "Search for your unit by Model:" window, then click search.
• Click the “YourModelNumber” - Remington Electric Chain Saw "View Model" link.
• Click “View Owners Manual” or "View Illustrated Parts Diagram" link.
• Type "YourPartNumber" into the “Search for your parts by Part #:” window, then click search.
Part Number 108640-01 is available here $13.99 - the picture is a complete assembly (cover, bar nuts, spacers and tensioner assembly).
If me I would use the phone number provided, ensure it includes all illustrated parts, order with a credit card (recover your investment much easier), get the name of the service person helping me and the name of her/his supervisor.
Please re-accomplish my steps to ensure I made no mistake, I do err occasionally (I swear on a stack of UCMJs covers have been NLA for quite a while).
If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.
Thank You for using FixYa.
