Hi

The tracking adjuster on my saw has "frozen" i.e. you can tighten it but when you loosen it, it remains in the same place! See photo below:

Tension adjuster

How can I fix this please?

It sounds like your threads are stripping, either inside the 'U' shaped bit or on the shaft itself. In which case you would either have to replace whichever part is worn, or if you have access to a set of tap and dies, to cut new threads, but it may be easier to replace the parts.

I don't think (but could be wrong) the threads are stripped as when you tighten the tension adjuster it moves the bar down. When you loosen the tension adjuster the bar does not move back up, if that makes sense.

What you may find charlie is that shortly it wont tighten, have you tried to take it apart? If you can take it apart then you may find out what is wrong.

hi Charlie

i think you have a problem with the guides . if you are able to strip this down you can then clean the guides as they will probably be full of dust and this will make the guide stick . i hope that this is of use to you.
