most any bar and chain oil for chain saws will work. The cheaper the better just make sure you keep the chain oiled up. if you can touch the chain and oil oil does'nt get on you you not using enoght and put oil right on the chain. certainly when you put the saw away to store it. even wrapping the bar and chain in a rag with oil in it is a good idea as it'll be ready for next time.
Start by making sure it's unplugged. Then remove chain, and bar, and clean oil slot in the bar and all of the housing in the area the oil comes out onto the bar. I use carb cleaner (safer than gas) and then empty and clean the oil reserve. Refill with straight 30 weight. Never use car oil like a 10w30 or 5W40! Then prime (pump) and start the saw without chain or bar. You should see some oil squirt out. If not, soak a clean empty oil reserve overnight in carb cleaner and try again.Once the oil path is clean, you should be back in business. If not - see your authorized service center.....LOL
Any good quality chain saw 'bar' oil is suitable and it does not need to be an expensve brand either: it is highly recommended that you use a specially blended chain saw 'bar' oil but in emergency you can you fresh 'thick' (e.g. older) car engine oil but don't make it a habit as your chain and bar will wear off a lot faster!
If the saw was at speed when the chain came off there are probably burrs on the chain drive links (the part that goes in the bar). They often cause binding and in extreme case may cause the chain to ride up and off the bar when operated. Use a file on the drive link flats to remove all burrs.

The oil to use for the chain is called BAR OIL and if there is anything that might be universal, it is BAR OIL. You can use BAR OIL on electric and non electric saws alike. Self sharpening and non-self shaprening chains. Any manufacturer. It is BAR OIL.
Do not use any other kind of oil in your saw. BAR OIL is particularly sticky and hangs on to the chain even while cutting the wood at high speed.
Where the bar meets the body of the saw there is an adjustment lug that will either push the bar outward tightening the chain or may be retracted allowing slack in the chain. When backed off (loosened) sufficiently, the chain may be removed for replacement. In order to use this feature, however, there are two bolts that secure the bar to the body that must be loosened prior to any adjustment and tightened bach up after making adjustments to the chain. The above will be enough to remove and replae the chain. If you are taking off the bar (that the chain runs on), you will need to remove the two bolts that were just loosened for the chain adjustment (above).
