    If you are talking about a chainsaw, all chains stretch as they heat up. The other cause is the guide bad itself starts to wear down making the chain a little more loose. It's nothing to worry about, just use your chain tightner and tighten it up. You should be able to see three of the drivers when you lightly pull up on the chain, more it's too loose, less and it's too tight.

    Chains usually stretch with use and as they become warmer.
