SOURCE: Bar sprocket smokes, gets hot spot

Sounds like you're not getting enough oil to the chain. Basically you've got an oil pump, pickup and filter involved in getting oil from the resovior to the chain/bar. If you cleaned the obvious area and the chain is not coated with oil, you may have a clog further up (inside) the oil delivery mechanisms. Also, drain the oil from the tank, and see if you can "blow" air through there. With the saw running & pointed down, you should be able to see oil on the ground being slung off the chain, if not, you are not getting enough oil to the chain.

SOURCE: Poulan Pro 295 won't keep running.

pull the black dust cap on top there are three screws going down, the idle screw is on the left side (if you were holding the saw) near the top of the carb it has a spring around it. the 2 weird screws under that are the mixture screws hi and low rpm you really shouldn't mess with those unless your sure of what your doing. if that doesn't work there is a really small hole ( and I mean small) in the bottom of the carb for a diaphragm if that gets clogged it runs bad, also vibration can loosen the cylinder bolt turn the saw upside down and there are (or should be 4 bolts) make sure they are tight if one already rattled out take the one kitty corner to Lowe's or a hardware store and get a replacement.

SOURCE: Adjustment for carbuerator on Poulan Pro Chain Saw/ Model 221/ 40

Are the jet screws fitted with slot heads or 'D' heads? 'D' heads require a special tool to adjust and are not available to the general public, so you are stuck with taking the saw to a servicing dealer for adjustment. Slot head screws can be turned with a small flat-blade driver by anyone. In case you have owner-adjustable heads, try the following: Turn both screws CW to stops (lightly), then back each out 1-1/2 turns CCW. The engine should run with this basic setting. Warm up the saw, then pull the throttle full on. Turn H needle CW until the engine speeds up somewhat, but still 4-stroking. Proper adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L CW until the engine idles fairly well, but allows the engine to 'follow-the-throttle'. Adjust idle speed so that the chain stops turning, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

How do I adjust the amount of oil that goes on the blade. It seems to dump a lot of oil on the blade and blade guide. Goes everyplace

Sorry but this model is not equipped with an oil flow adjustment screw.

The clutch cover area must be saturated with lubricant to properly lubricate the bar and chain and
to ensure the long-term durability of your chain saw.

One thing you could try is to purchase a slightly thicker oil. I got some once at a auto part store and it had anti-sling ingredients.

Chain brake on my poulan pro 50cc does not lock-in place. It just swings freely from side to side.

a worn clutch shoe or brake band is the most common cause, remove the side cover and actuate the brake, if you can wiggle the shoe or turn it at all then its for sure the shoe or band

On the poulan 3300 chainsaw how do I adjust the flow of bar oil?

The adjuster screw is on the r/h side of the machine, turn the machine on its side ( starter side down ) now at the bottom l/h side of the drive sprocket you should see a screw, undoing it will increase the oil flow.

I have a Poulan 20" chain saw that keeps leaking out the bar oil every time I put it in the container and store it. What causes this and can it be fixed by myself?

Most chainsaws have an adjustment for bar oiling and its quite normal for a chainsaw that is stored for long periods of time (weeks or even days) to leak out the bar oil. This is normal for chainsaws stored for several weeks or more.

Some of it may be reduced by adjusting the rate of flow for the bar oiler, read your manual carefully before attempting to adjust it. Adjust to too slow a flow rate will have adverse effects on performance and can lead to premature chain or bar failure.

Recommend that if you are going to store your chainsaw for more than a couple of weeks, drain the bar oil back out if it into a container (strain it through a paper towel before returning to your bar oil can). Also, you really should drain almost all the fuel and then run it until it shuts off if you are storing it for a month or more.
