How do you tighten the chain on an Oregon electric chainsaw?

Oregon electric chainsaws are a great choice for anyone looking for a quality chainsaw. They are easy to use and maintain, and they provide plenty of power for cutting through even the biggest logs. However, like any other piece of machinery, it’s important to keep the chain tight so that it doesn’t come loose while you’re using it. Here is how you can tighten the chain on an Oregon electric chainsaw:

First, make sure that the saw is unplugged and that the chain brake is engaged. Then loosen the screw on top of the bar cover with a Phillips head screwdriver. Next, remove the bar cover by pulling it straight off of the saw body. You should now be able to see both sides of the chain tensioner wheel (located near where the bar meets the motor). Use your fingers to squeeze together then release two tabs on either side of the wheel (you may need needle-nose pliers if they are difficult to reach). The wheel will now spin freely; turn it clockwise until there is slight resistance (this indicates that the chain has been tightened sufficiently). Finally, replace the bar cover and tighten the screw with a screwdriver
