Make sure the oil port doesn't have a chip of wood blocking it.

Why won't the oil feed to the bar and chain


Good morning Jeremy.

I have a couple of thoughts, and pardon me if any of them might seem way too obvious. Most of them are based on my own wide range of trying to figure out why my old McCulloch wasn't working :-)
  1. Is there oil in the bar/chain oil reservoir? This is the easiest one to fix, fortunately, by adding oil.
  2. Is the oil outlet to the chain/bar clogged? Will likely require some disassembly to get there. The rear gear/drive area is a natural spot for wood chips and sawdust to clump together, bound with a bit of chain oil. With enough build-up, you'll get both more drag on the drivetrain, and possibly reduced or impeded oil flow. I seem to recall there being a couple of through-holes on my McCulloch where the oil feeds in from the side, and they have been clogged solid at times. This would likely be addressed by removing the chain and blade and giving them, and the junction area, a thorough cleaning. (Remember to properly tension the chain when you re-assemble)
  3. There is an oil pump listed amongst the replacement parts for the saw on the manufacturers site http://www.poulan.com/ddoc/POUI/POUI2010_USen/POUI2010_USen__576754701.pdf It's possible that the oil pump has failed, or the oil pick-up is clogged or disconnected, in which case there will be no oil flow. See items 49-53 in the exploded part diagram.
Those are my primary thoughts. You can also see a soft copy of the manual here Poulan Pro 115327926 Instruction Manual Page 16 to look at other tips on running the saw.

I hope this helps!

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!

No oil getting to bar and chain..


The oil pump is run by a worm gear that will strip easily if the oil pump becomes clogged. You'll have to remove the bar and do some disassembly on the saw, but it is possible to fix. You can buy the replacement parts kit (that comes with an instruction sheet) from poulan for about 20 bucks, just call the number on the saw.

My poulan is not sending oil to the chain, i tried taking air to it and cleaned it out.


The oil pump has a worm gear that strips easily if the oil line clogs. You will likely need to replace it.

I need a manual for a new Poulan 3.5 electric chainsaw, or, failing that, I need instructions on what kind of oil to use on it, and whether I need separate oil for the chain.


You shouldn't need any other oil than the oil to keep the chain and bar guide oiled (pressing down on the button adds more oil to the chain/bar). You can use standard Bar and Chain Oil, or probably pay a little more and use the Poulan brand oil, but in my experience, any bar oil for chainsaws will work, and the larger the container you buy, the less per ounce you will pay. Remember this is NOT an automatic oiling system, so it will be cheaper in the long run to remember to press that button than to replace the chain/saw if it overheats.

Poulan chainsaw / model p3416 16" manual What brand of motor oil is required for this saw?


There is no actual brand required, you need two stroke oil designed for use in a chainsaw to mix with the fuel at 25-1, try to get oil manufactured by a chainsaw company, and you need non fling chain oil for the oil tank at the front of the saw to lubricate the chain.

Poulan oiler don't work


Common problem with Poulan and Craftsman gas saws. Take off the chain and chain guide and clean out all the saw dust etc. Start saw without chain and look for port where there are signs of oil. If port is clear of sawdust, then it is likely the pump which is located behind the chain break assembly. you can get the diagram on Poulan website and the replacement pump will cost about $15 - $20 to replace yours.
