There's a tiny hole on the front of the bar near the bar sprocket. This is used to grease the sprocket. If you go somewhere like Lowe's look in the chainsaw section and you'll find a grease tube that is specially designed to lube the front sprocket. Before lubing use a small wire to clean out any debris from the whole. Press the lube tube against the hole and push repeatedly until grease comes out from the outside of the bar. This should greatly extend the life of the bar.

Check sprocket isn't worn it may be pulling on chain than over heating bearing. check pitch of chain ,bar , sprocket are the same.

Poulan pro troubleshooting


CHAIN STRETCHS AS IT HEATS - KEEP CHAIN TIGHTENED CORRECTLY AND ALWAYS KEEP OIL IN OILER AND MAKE SURE IT OILS THE CHAIN. IF THIS DOESN'T FIX - REPLACE THE CHAIN. IF IT STILL HAPPENS THEN REPLACE BAR. WILL FAIL AGAIN WITHOUT OIL. POULAN WILL NOT HOLD UP WITHOUT CHAIN LUBRICATION. WORSE THAN OTHERS. IF CHAIN OR BAR OVERHEATED YOU'LL WORK ON IT MORE THAN YOU CUT. OIL IS THE KEY TO CUT WITH A POULAN!

Chainsaw rattles when it stops


personally too much hassle prefer Stihl Chainsaw more reliable Seizing is caused by lack of lubrication, First check all level has oil pump seized or is it sump type when running oil circulates all way round, Still there has to be a oil reservoir if this is bone dry theres your problem the rattling is metal on metal with no protection and the damage is seizing caused by lack of oil I have two chainsaws both have oil sumps and are kept full, please check hope this helps

Carb. connector hose to air filter keeps melting.


There should be only two small diameter hoses (lines) that connect to the carburetor--one comes from the fuel filter in the tank and the other connects to the primer bulb. If either of these is melting/breaking from heat, someone has replaced them with inferior rubber/plastic tubing or you have some serious engine heat problems! Buy the correct lines from a Poulan saw dealer and replace the junk. If you had that much heat, it would have seized the piston in the engine. After the lines have been replaced, check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Start the engine and after warm up, open the throttle fully. It should 4-stroke but immediately 2-stroke when cutting. If it 2-strokes at all times, then the 'H' jet needle may need to be adjusted. Don't ignore this as it causes overheating, low power, and possible engine damage. Hope this helps!

Chain keeps falling off


Have you stripped the studs that hold the guide bar in position? It is the only thing I can think of unless the guide bar has worn down so much there isn't a deep enough groove to guide the chain

I have a Poulan Pro PP3516AVX chain saw. I used it


Their not the best saws but make sure the nuts holding the bar and cover on are tight after adjusting chain sometimes improper cutting will continue to kick chain off bar.

I have a poulan-pro 20" chain saw ... It doesn't seem to have good chain lubrication ... How do I check if the chain oil pump is working (or if there is a clog) ... The manual is poor ... Thanks ...


What I would do is remove the bar and chain. In the side of the bar are a couple holes that feed oil from the saw into the bar grooves. Make sure these are clean of any debris. Then look at the side of the saw where there is usually a wear plate and make sure the groove there is also free of debris. Lastly I would start the saw WITHOUT the bar and chain and look for oil coming from the groove area described above. If nothing coming out then you have a problem with saw motor and would have to go deeper into it.
