Question about Poulan Wild Thing 2375 18" Gas Chain Saw 2.5 Cuin

1 Answer

Chain oiler I am not getting any oil on the chain and bar. I assume something is plugged up but I am not sure where the oil comes out and it is not even obvious how to take the saw apart. The plastic sections seem to be molded together.

Take off cover to the bar, remove chain and bar. spray degreaser or hot soapy water in and around the interior housing. look carefully and you should see a small hole that is where the chain lube comes from. typically all you need is a good cleaning in this area. hope this helps.

remove your bar and chain. check now for oil. also at this point clean and inspect the oil hole on your bar. if you get oil from unit with bar and chain off then the problem is in your bar. if still no oil and assuming you have oil in reservoir then remove clutch and oiler cover remove the worm gear and inspect. if damaged replace if not with low pressure used compressed air through to resevior

Tip

Checking your chain oiler


Chain oilers are a vital part of keeping your saw running well. No oil can even cause the chain to bind up. Over a period of time it can greatly increase the wear rate of your bar and chain reducing it's life. Chain oilers seldom go bad they just get clogged up with sawdust.

Remove the housing that covers that bar and sprocket. There are two plates on each side of the bar that set over the studs.They may be identical or slightly different depending on the saw but at least one of them will have a hole in it for the oiler. If you remove the bar and both plates you will see the oiler hole on the saw housing. This oiler injects oil through the plate and into a small hole in the bar where the chain picks it up and carries it around the saw. If this hole becomes plugged with sawdust it will keep your saw from oiling the bar proplerly. This hole should be cleaned out periodically. It's not a bad idea to remove the whole chain periodically and clean the chain guide all the way around the bar and get any sawdust buildup out so the oil can flow better.

The automatic chain oiler does not get oil to the chain. Yes, it has chain oil. The black tube to the top chamber at the bar, seems to be plugged and I cant get it off to clean it out. Thanks, Steve


I have never seen an automatic chain oiler that worked. Even new ones don't seem to work. Just pour a little used engine oil on the bar once in awhile like everyone else does.
In theory there is a small piston that rubs on an eccentric at the chain sprocket, and that sucks in oil and pushes it through a hole, into the center groove of the bar.
But if the piston is dry, it won't pump.
If the holes are clogged with sawdust, it won't work.

Brand new poulan pro 4620avx--bar oil is coming out of oiler but not getting onto chain


Hello. Thin your bar oil just a wee bit with some kerosene. If you have a gallon of bar oil add 1/4 cup of kerosene, stir it up and you will be fine. For starters also, directly apply some bar oil to the chain so that you are always using a well lubed chain. Joe

New chain installed, cut for 1/2 hour, chain now sags well below


Place a piece of white paper on the ground
Start your saw and point the tip of the bar at the paper, this will allow you to see if it is oiling or not
I am assuming that we are dealing with a newer saw and not an old manual oiler
Blowing air back through the oil ports in to the oil tank ( with the cap removed and oil tank drained) should help clean out whatever is plugging it.
Once cleared run a bit of diesel through the oil tank, drain it and refill with clean fresh oil
I never use old oil in my saws for just this reason

Hope this helps

Automatic Oiler is not working on my Husquvarna 45


This usually means the oiler hole behind the bar & chain is plugged. you need to remove the bar & chain, clean the body of the chain saw in front of the sprocket/clutch assembly. look for a small hole & clean out using something like a toothpick & wd40 or penetrating oil.

The chain and bar is not getting oil , what can I do to fix?


You can find an IPL (exploded parts list) with your oil system detail here:
HusqvarnaUSA.com
http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/download-manuals/

Oil System Plugged.
Remove the clutch cover, bar and chain. Clean the oiler hole and channel. Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up. If yes reassemble your saw.
If no a blunted, hooked piece of wire can be used to pull the hose in the oil tank out. I recommend the filter be replaced. Work your way through the linkage cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (clutch is probably left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly. GL

Husqvarna 141 will not oil and when i had it serviced they replaced the oiler and it did not solve the problem.


Remove the chain and bar assembly. Start engine--should pump oil from oiler port where the bar fits on the engine side. If oil comes out, then possibly the bar-oiling passage in the bar itself is plugged with dirt or sawdust--blow clean with compressed air. If no oil comes out from the port, check the pickup tube inside the oil tank. Drain the oil into something and fish the pickup tube end out with a hooked wire. Replace if collapsed, cracked, or loose.

Blade will run for about a minute. Then locks up if i give it a minute and force the chain to move it will run for a minute the i will have to wait again


Need to make sure your oiler is working. If not the chain will get hot and expand thus locking it up from friction. There is about a 1/4" hole in the rear of the bar where the oiler feeds oil to the chain. Sometimes this hole gets filled with sawdust. Clean it out and make sure you're getting oil to the chain. When you rev the engine and the chain turns you should see it throwing a small amount of oil off the tip of the bar towards the ground. If you don't see the oil then you need to get that fixed.
