SOURCE: Chain oiler inop

this is a common problem and requires replacement of the pump. remove the bar and chain, the pump comes loose with a few screws. under it you'll see the filter which could be clogged, but not usually as contaminants are not likely to enter the tank. Small engine shops can order the new pump for you, hope this helps

SOURCE: Can't get the chain oiler to work. Using standard bar oil.

You can always put some penentrating oil in the saw oil tube by the bar, spray it in with the plastic straw attatched. Sometimes this will clean things out. As far as the tube being un attatched,,,, taking case apart is usually the remedy - kinda takes a while... :) Hope this helps you, Rick.

SOURCE: how to adjust chain and bar oiler flow

The chain should be adjusted so that the chain can be pulled by hand fairly easily, but doesn't droop from the bar underneath. Oil flow should be set so that a running engine (chain moving fairly fast) will send a thin line of oil off of the tip of the bar (onto a piece of cardboard) with a few moments of running. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: McCulloch EB428 chainsaw and the auto oiler won't work

Good on you for what attempted already. I looked at the print and it appears there is a worm gear (item 50) and a driven pump (item 61) behind the clutch. I suspect one of the 2 has failed. I know you have done most of this already But does it ooze with the bar off?
Oil System Plugged:

  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar), if equipped with a sprocket nose ensure it rotates easily at least one complete revolution. Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out. Pay attention to the screen or filter on the free end (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up (oozes down side of saw). If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Work your way through the linkage (use IPL to identify components and locations) cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (clutch is a left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly.
If it does not oil on completion of 1 it is most likely a bad oiler or worm gear (see IPL).

The oil pump on our electric chainsaw is not working


First remove the chain and bar and inspect the oil slot that lines up with the oiler opening in the side of the engine block. You may find it plugged with impacted sawdust. Next inspect the oiler opening itself for blockage.

I need to know which oil type goes into the oil chamber for the chain on a mac 3200 gas chainsaw, not the mixture...thanks


There really is no exact type of oil that goes into the chain and bar oiler. Each manufacturer usually makes their own, but any chain and bar oil will work. It is a thicker type of oil unlike a motor oil. Just ensure that the bottle says "bar and chain" oil

Chain comes off mcculloch electramac em250 chain saw


Adjust the chain until you can pull on it and it will come away from the bar but will not hang from the bar. If that does not solve your problem then the chain or drive gear is worn out. If the oiler is not working it is for sure worn out.
