There are plastic guides by the adjustment screw that seem to be grabbing the chain so I cant move it by hand. The chain moves till I tighten it down all the way then it wont move

is this a new saw?

Ask Your Own Small Engine Question

re​move the guides and see how if moves? normally the plastic guides are removed once in use.
