i assume you mean the chain guides???
here are a few things that can happen..
the most common would be age.. things like incorrect cam chain tension after cam change, guides can brake if not carefull when removing head and also trying to rotate engine without cam sprocket fitted..

the tensioner itself will usually only stuff up if it clogs up with crap..
and if someone has done a bodgy and forced the tensioner tight after head or cam change..
