Just bought wen chainsaw at fleemarket. same discription and problem. took it apart and found white corrosion on copper pad that connects against motor carbon brushes. used sand paper to clean contact area and reassembled saw. Worked fine afterwards.

Are you pressing the trigger lock with your thumb before you pull the trigger? That's a safety feature to prevent accidental sawing.
There's not a sensor for the oil, but you don't want to run the saw dry. It takes a special bar/chain oil which is thicker than motor oil.
FYI... if you look for a manual on the web, search for "Wagner chainsaw" because Wagner bought the chainsaw business from Wen.
