CLEANING
.....
WARNING:
To avoid serious personal
injury, always stop
the engine and allow it to cool before cleaning or maintaining
J
the unit.
1.
Loosen the saw chain
if the chain tension
was adjusted
during
operation.
The saw chain will contract
as the unit cools,
which
could
damage
the unit if the chain
is too tight.
2.
Clean the unit with
a damp
cloth.
Do not douse the unit with
water. Do not use strong detergents.
Household
cleaners that
contain
aromatic
oils such as pine and lemon,
and solvents
such
as kerosene,
can damage
plastic.
NOTE: When preparing
the unit for long-term
storage
(30 days or
more), remove the guide bar and saw chain. Carefully
clean the
guide bar cover, guide
bar mounting
surface and sprocket.
Use
a firm non-wire
brush to clean the guide bar groove.
Reassemble
the unit.
3.
Wipe off any moisture
with
a soft cloth.
4.
Use compressed
air, up to 40 PSI, to blow debris from the
cylinder
fins (Fig. 47). The cylinder fins must be cleaned
on a
regular
basis to reduce the risk of personal
injury or damage
to
the unit as a result of fire. Always use safety goggles/glasses
when
using compressed
air. Do not use water or other liquids
to
clean the cylinder fins. Use a small wire brush to remove
stubborn
debris.
If
a significant
amount
of debris remains,
have
the unit cleaned
by a Sears or other qualified
service dealer.
5.
Lightly coat the guide bar and saw chain with a corrosion-
inhibiting
oil.
