Stihl ms241 C-M. Excessive amount of leaked chain lub oil on shelf every time I go to get machine. Would expect or accept a couple of drips but this is annoying. Is this a warranty issue.

Regards

If it's still under warranty and it's bugging you it is, you didn't really need to ask.

Just thought someone had had a similar problem and was a easy fix without it having to be sent back. Really appreciate the 2 expert helpful replies.

If you take the bar off where does the oil come from? Out the oiler hole or elsewhere? 

 

I thought my ms200t was leaking. Just had the oiler too high and it was pissing out the chain and bar when it was sat still

I stand by my first reply, take it back if it bothers you and listen to the supplier's response (excuses) when you tell them the problem. What chain oil are you using ?

Realise also its an open circuit, so even a change in air temperature can make it leak. If you  put it away half empty it may help but not if you have a cracked case. K

Took chain and bar off, cleaned all surfaces. Could Just see lub oil in port. Started engine, drive sprocket was turning and oil was pumping, engaged chain break and oil stopped pumping.

Topped up oil ... Was half full. (Rotatec medium viscosity). Put the saw on a clean bench

will see if leak occurs overnight, .

I had an issue with a 251, if stored on its side with bar down then no leak, any other way then a gentle weep. Out of warranty so not worth following up for me.
