CS-590 throwing alot of oil but not on the chain and bar
« on: July 24, 2016, 02:40:13 pm »
Hi All,

Just bought a new CS-590, started right up an runs fine. But here is the issue, the oil is dripping all around the case and even smoking on the exhaust but not running down the bar and chain.

Any ideas and help is needed.

thanks

Also to be noted, i havent used it to cut any thing yet. This is just the initial startup and break in phase.

I don't know anything about that saw in particular so remember that part please. 

I would clean it off dry, using carb cleaner or some such drying solvent and an air blower.  Fill the oil tank and let is sit for a few minutes to see if it leaks like that.  Might want to use some thinner oil than normal bar oil.    Then I would start it up for just a few seconds, maybe 10-15.  Shut off and look for oil.  If nothing, run it a few seconds longer, maybe 30.  The leak should be obvious at that point.  If there is oil all over, clean it up again and run shorter time.  Good luck.  :)

When you lift chain up out of bar groove is there oil on the drive links?

I have let the saw sit and it doesnt leak by itself. I did clean it and took the bar off and ran it and it seems it is coming out only from the port but once the channels are full the oil never makes it in the bar.

There seems to be a little oil in there but most of it is in the housing and dripping down. It doesnt come out of the tip like my other echo-490 and makes a like line.
Seems the bar doesnt have a hole at the bottom and that causes all the oil to run in the housing.

If it were me and as you say its a new saw take it back to the dealer should be a warranty problem

Yeah, dealer, I missed the part about brand new.   Your other description suggests you might have the bar plates in wrong, oiler working but blocked by the bar plate from reaching the bar.  Might check to make sure the oil holes in the mount, bar plate and bar all line up.  If you don't see the problem right away, have the dealer take a warranty look.

Here is the dilemma , bought it on eBay, so no dealer warranty.

WAGS See if your inner and outer bar plates are in order. Check for missing outer bar plate on clutch cover. Check your bar oiler hole for placement on the bar mount on case.
