Question and Answers

Q:

Bar is stuck.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.
 
I added a link to the Operator's Manual and on page 14 it shows how to replace and adjust the bar and chain.
 
Since you have the nuts and the bar clamp/cover removed, you will likely need to turn the adjustment screw to release the tension on the chain. Remove the chain and then the bar should simply pull off the two studs. If the chain is off, you may need to tap on the bar to free it up. If the adjustment screw will not loosen in order to release the tension, you may be turning it the wrong way.
 
If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician fix this problem, you can carry the chain saw into your nearest Sears Repair Center or Sears Store. Here is a link for the Sears Service website that has information on the nearest repair facilities in your area: Sears Home Services.

Steve; The adjustment screw which is use to tighten and loose the chain will need to be turned to remove the tension on the chain. If the bar does not become loose, use a block of wood and tap on the tip of the bar where the chain comes over the top of the bar. You are tapping the bar towards the engine. If the adjustment screw is stuck, it will have to be loosened so the bar can be slide back towards the engine or you will not likely get the bar loose. If you can't get the chain adjustment screw loosened, I recommend taking the saw in for repair.
