SOURCE: Insufficient chain oiling

Sorry to tell you this but you need a new OIL PUMP but it's not a difficult thing to replace.
On the main shaft of the crank shaft under the centrifugal clutch is a spiral wound wire that matches a plastic part that is the oil pump. You can get the part from Poulan parts and it will take about 15 minutes to fix the first time eight minutes the second time.
Glad to be of assistance.

SOURCE: 16" Electric Chain Saw: what kind of oil is used for electric chain saw...

I assume you are asking about the oil for the chain. Any good quality "Bar and Chain Oil" will do fine. Do not use motor oil you use in your car engine as it will not properly lube the chain and will result in quicker dulling and early demise of the chain.

You can get the "Bar and Chain Oil" at most hardware stores or Farm Supply stores.

Stihl chain saw 024 AV , chain does not get oil


run it with the bar off and see if it pumps oil. I have drained oil tank and cleaned with gas(no run) then replaced with lite oil , run no chain and got them going ,or then gingerly run wire into oil hole and got them going, otherwise its tear apart time. If oil does come out, then clean your bar and your cover and use bar chain oil.

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.

The saw is a 385xp. We have changed bars and chains numerous times. When sawing the bar gets hot enough to fry an egg and the chain stretches out. Onlynable to saw a minute or teo at the time. bar gets...


Overheating the chain/bar is usually caused by insufficient oil getting to the chain, but can be caused by the chain being too tight to begin with (you should be able to turn the chain by hand), grit in the chain groove, or a poorly sharpened chain. The saw has an oil volume adjustment screw on the lower part of the case near the chain return area. Turning it CCW should increase oil flow. Oil volume can be judged by running the saw tip at speed near some cardboard for a moment--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Chain sharpening condition can be judged by the sawdust residue coming from the cut--if a powder-like material, the teeth are not sharp or are improperly filed. You should not have to bear down excessively on the saw to make it cut quickly. Hope some of this helps!

No oil is getting on chain. I cleaned the chain saw and especially the bar and bar groove, but still no oil getting on chain. Is there a hole that I can stick a wire in to make sure it's not plugged ?


Remove the bar and chain (release the chain brake first) and clean the side of the engine case where the bar fits to. Start the engine and observe whether oil oozes out of the side port. If ok, clean the small oil passages in the drive end of the bar that run out to the chain groove on each edge from the large holes. If no oil came out, then the oil pump, oil line, or oil tank filter may require service. Good luck!

In addition to the gas and oil mixture there is a place for just oil....what do I need to put in there ?


That's for the bar&chain oil. It dribbles onto the chain as the saw runs, lubricating the where the chain slides over the slot in the edge of the bar. Without this oil the chain & bar will overheat pretty quickly, ruining both the bar and the chain.
Good luck

What kind of oil goes in the bar oil hole?


Use CHAIN oil. Any oil will do but chain oil is thicker and sticky and will stay on the chain much longer. The price is much the same. Stephen.

It seems like the chain is not getting any oil earlier in the day the saw was fine. I had to replace the chain and started sawing on a tree and the chain just smoking and burning the wood. It does not look...


Are you using any oil in the oil resivour? The oil lubricates the chain on the bar. I would guess that you installed the chain backwards. If the chain moves freely on the bar it is getting lubrication. I have made that mistake before. check rotation and your new chain. Don't know what brand of chain saw you have, automatic oiler, manual oiler, ect. but would guess that the problem is with the chain itself. Hope it as simple as that.

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.

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.
