SOURCE: chain wont stay tight
Could be the correct nuts have been replaced with regular nuts. The original had a knurls on the nuts to hold in place. If they do not then you will have to do as bunnydawg says, use lock washers.

SOURCE: chain will not move on chainsaw
It sounds as though the chain brake is released.
If a Poulan PP4218(MattersNot) it has an inboard clutch. Push the forward most upper handle toward the bar nose. Did it click? If not the chain brake is engaged; grasp the forward most upper handle and pull it aft (may require some force at rear extreme) until it clicks (a keeper nests in a detent). Move it fore and aft a few times, make it click in each position just for familiarity. If not the problem please post back (below) and we will continue.
If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa and Good Luck. HTH

SOURCE: chain will not move on chainsaw
This will be the basic instruction for most common
saws. Check that the chain brake is in disengaged position by moving the front
hand guard towards the front handle if the saw is equipped with a chain brake
on the handle. Loosen the bar nuts on the clutch cover. Loosen tension screw or
other adjuster (thumbscrew) to allow the bar to be moved toward the engine.
Some saws have this tension adjustment built into the bar. This will provide
enough slack in the chain to able to reinstall it. It may be necessary to
remove the side cover to gain access to the clutch/gear assembly on the side of
the engine if the chain also jumped the gear here. Remove the cover, inspect
for any debris or other obstructions in this area. If none, replace the chain
back over the drive gear and in the bar groove all the way around the bar. It
may be necessary to turn the bar adjuster screw more to provide enough slack in
the chain to do this. Once the chain is in place reinstall the cover and bar
lock nuts. Snug up the nuts but do not tighten these. Turn the bar/chain
adjuster screw to tighten the chain on the bar (take up slack). I usually
tighten to a point where there is no slack between the chain and the bottom of
the bar and I can still turn the chain easily around the bar by hand. With
experience you will get the feel for this chain tension. Once the chain is
properly tensioned, tighten the bar lock bolts/ nuts on the side cover.
Some Poulan Pros have an adjuster screw on the front of the engine case right beside the bar, some have a tool less adjuster on the clutch cover, and some have a slot in the bar for adjusting the chain tension.
I hope this helps you out.

SOURCE: Chainsaw is new but chain
All machines today will have a chainbrake, this is normally a band that comes around the clutch drum to stop the chain in the event of a kick back, to unlock the brake, pull the hand guard fully back to the top handle until you hear the click of the brake loading, there will be an amount of force required to pull the guard back.

Tips for a great answer:
The side plate on most chainsaws will be held on by two nuts. Loosen the blade adjustment screw (a pin that is usually driven by a screw and pushes the blade out from the chainsaw to keep the chain tension tight).
The old chain is ready to be removed now that the sprocket plate is off of the saw. Pull the nose of the chainsaw's bar away from the chainsaw to release it from the tensioner.
Remove the old chainsaw chain.
The chain will easily remove from the guide bar with all that slack in it. Note the orientation of the cutting edges of the chain so you put the new one on the same way.
Pull the drive links out of the guide bar and slip the other end of the chain around the clutch drum.
Carefully thread your new or recently sharpened chainsaw chain around the chainsaw's clutch drum, making sure that the drive links engage in the sprocket.
Thread the rest of the drive links into the guide bar and around its nose, making sure all links are in the guide bar slot.
With the chain properly threaded along the clutch drum and guide bar, put some tension into it by pulling on the nose of the guide bar away from the chainsaw.
While pulling the guide bar, make sure to seat it onto the saw's adjustment pin.
Replace the side plate.
The side plate is ready to go back on as long as the guide bar is properly positioned beneath.
Replace the plate and the nuts that hold it into position, but do not tighten the nuts down all the way yet. The guide bar must be allowed to move a little while the chain is tightened to the correct tension.
Finish tightening the side plate nuts.
The chainsaw chain replacement is now complete.
