Checking the Automatic Oiler
Proper functioning of the automatic saw chain oiler can be
checked by running the chain saw and pointing the tip of the
chain bar towards a piece of cardboard or paper on the
ground. Do not touch the ground with the chain and ensure a
safety clearance of 20 cm. If an increasing oil pattern devel-
opes, the automatic oiler is operating fine. If there is no oil
pattern despite a full oil reservoir, see section "Troubleshoot-
ing" or contact your authorized Bosch after-sales service.

soft brush and clean cloth. Do not use water, solvents or pol-
ishes. Remove all debris, especially from the motor cooling

Clean the area under the cover 16, the drive sprocket 18 and
the chain bar assembly from adherant debris using a brush.
Clean the oil outlet 19 with a clean cloth.

difficult to operate, remove the protective lid 29, turn the
locking knob 15 and the chain-tensioning ring 14 against
each other, so that debris is loosened from the mechanism
and can be discarded. Carefully strike or tap out debris from
the cover 16. If the mechanism is heavily clogged, use a soft
brush or compressed air for cleaning. Do not use tools of any
kind. (see figure J)
