Sounds like th clutch brake is engaged. Try Pushing firmly foward on the hand guard in front of the handle. It should click to release the clutch brake.
Let me know if this helps.

This probably is a worn out automatic oiling diaphragm and plunger assembly. If it is like my Super 2, it is right behind the clutch and sprocket. I had to take the sprocket off to get to the little plate held by three small screws. You probably have to remove the plastic covers first to see this stuff. After removing the screws, the diaphragm and plunger should peel off either the plate or the engine housing. Now the fun starts. I found a parts supplier that listed a picture of the little demon and the price was about seven dollars. But I didn't bookmark the site and now I can't find it again. If all this info matches your saw, and you find a parts supplier, please post it. Good Luck!

Check that the oiler hole and the hole in the bar that it pumps into aren't clogged. The sawdust running under the chain and be deposited in the oiler hole in the bar until it plugs it solid. That will keep the oil from havintg a place to go and build up pressure.

Your saw is listed as an "XL Chain Saw UT-10655" here:
Homelite/Ryobi.com (authorized parts supplier)
https://www.gardnerinc.com/recons/disclaimer-lg.php - Agree; Choose “Product Line”; “Select OEM” & “Select Catalog” both to “Homelite Consumer Products”. A drop down list appears; self explanatory from here.
The numbers Homelite & Ryobi use do not match the numbers everyone posts. A careful inspection of your saw should find something that matches.
See the "Engine Internals" print. The oiler appears to above the clutch and driven by a pressurized tank. Venting the tank (opening the oil cap) may help help with weeping but only emptying the tank will stop it.
If no oil from engine oiler hole I suspect a failed hose or connection. Use the IPL to inspect and repair as needed.
Oil System Plugged.
