SOURCE: I have a Stihl .029

I have owned and use Stihl saws for the past 18 years and I have seen both these problems many times. as for the chain 'getting tight' -- when you go to adjust the chain, make sure you are lifting up on the tip of the bar as you set the tightness -- you should be able to only pull the chain away from the bar about 1/8th of a inch. now, while tightening the bar bolts make sure you still are pulling up on the tip of the bar,, and make sure the bar bolts are nice and tight -- not to tight though, the bolts that Stihl uses are a very weak point on their saws and I have broke more than just one. but make sure after one is tight that you tighten the other one and then give the first nut one more 'little' nudge tighter. new chains do have a break in period and they have been known to tighten up and loosen as they are running,, just keep your eye on it for awhile and thighten or loosen as needed.
now I am kinda confused on your next problem -- you say ' winter mix bar oil ' -- using this oil should not have anything to do with it stalling out, ( enless you are mixing bar oil with your gas ?? ),, make sure you are using Stihl 2-stroke oil to mix with your gas at a ratio of 50:1,, ( you can buy small bottles that mix with 1 gallon or a bottle that will mix with 5 gallons -- use 'em ). one thing that I have had troubles with when my saw wants to stall out is the fuel filter inside the fuel tank in the wrong position and is sucking air. also I have had fuel lines that crack and/or split and they **** air.
now the winter bar oil -- please,, I have been running Stihl saws in temperatures ranging from minus -5 to 100 degrees above and I have always used the SAME bar oil year round and had NO problems. on the side of the saw there is a bar oil delivery speed screw and you can adjust it to flow more or less -- your manual should show you the exact location of this screw,, make sure you clean out any debris that might be blocking the weep hole for the oil delivery. you need to make this adjustment with the bar and chain off the saw and you will see the flow of the oil and you can adjust to a good flow.
I am a firm believer in buying and using Sthil chainsaws,, I will never buy anything else,, they are great and out last any other saw I have used or seen,, and your Farm Boss is a great saw and should give you many years of trouble free use.
one suggestion that I would make real quick is to ' change your saw mechanic ' -- find one that has been ' WORKING ' on chainsaws ( not just selling them ) for along time,, someone that has your interest at heart and is there to help you,, not just to take your money.
(((( I am still laughing at the ' Stihl Winter Mix bar oil :-) )))).
good luck with your saw,, and if you have anymore questions about this please feel free to write me back here and I will do my best to walk you through what it is that you need to know and do. again - I have been using and working on chainsaws for most of my life.
have a great night,

Farm boss starts runs great until hot then stops dead let it cool and it runs what do I try?

Most likely needs to be torn apart, the cooling fins on the engine need to be cleaned regularly, also you have carbon build up inside muffler, there is a screen inside muffler, if not clean, you will eventually get a scored piston and cylinder wall, then you will need much more to fix the issue, also make sure you are using the correct ngk plug

Any complaints of saw catching fire?

Not really, but if you've had the issue, maybe the vent tube is allowing gas to be dripped into the carbuetor compartment behind the filter. Sometimes, when held horizontally, they will leak a bit out and older saws sometimes have the vent line to deteriorate from the alcohol in todays fuels causing a few drops of gas to escape. I've worn out two 041 Farm Boss saws and never a problem other than normal maintenance.

How do i clean oiler for chain on stihl farm boss?

The filter could be stuffed with sawdust, but depending on the model of saw, the problem could also be the oil pump drive system.
First of all though, empty out the chain oil and then part fill the chain oil tank with petrol, replace the cap and with the saw switched off, shake the saw violently for 10 secs. Remove the cap and empty out the tank and then refill with chain oil and try out the saw, revving it and check if any oil is flowing onto the chain.
If that has not solved the problem, let me know what the model of the saw is, Farm Boss is not enough, it could be an 038 an 041 and a few more as the farm boss name is used as well as the number.
We can then check a few other points which could be causing the problem.
