SOURCE: Chain slips off bar
I would suggest adjusting the tension and cleaning and debris along the chain path (guide bar).
Here's the manual for Poulan PP4218AV =>
Look at page 6-7 for instructions to adjust the chain tension and page 16 for cleaning the guide bar.

SOURCE: Chain keeps jumping off
when you adjust the tension of the chain, ensure the tip of the bar has upward pressure applied to it. This ensures the tension is correct while in use. Improper tension adjustment can cause the chain to loosen in use and "jump" off the bar. Improper adjustment can also stretch the chain leading to the same result.
please take the time to give this solution a fix ya rated

Make sure the chain brake is off (pull it toward you), then remove the bar mounting nut(s)/bolt(s) and the remove the side cover, bar, and chain. Clean the oil passages in the rear of the bar including two small passages that run from the larger holes out to the chain groove on each side. Clean the entire chain groove and make sure the end sprocket turns freely and is well oiled. Clean the engine face where the bar fits, then start the engine. Oil should ooze out of a small port in the engine case. If ok, then lay out the chain so that it can be inspected for bent links, dry/sticking joints, or missing/badly worn drive teeth. Inspect the sprocket on the clutch outer drum component for wear or damaged teeth. Make sure the pitch of the chain teeth match those of the drive sprocket (is this a new chain?). Check the hub bearing of the clutch drum for obvious wear. If all looks good, fit the chain around the clutch sprocket, then slip the bar into the the engine mounting space and work the chain over the entire bar. When setting the outer cover, make sure the adjuster tang fits into the related bar hole, then attach the clamp nut(s)/bolt(s), run up finger tight. Use the adjuster to set the chain tension--it should just pull the lower part of the chain up to the bar plus a little more. Check that you can move the chain by hand without any binding, then tighten the clamp bolts/nuts firmly. Recheck that the chain is properly tensioned. If not, re-loosen the clamp fasteners and re-tension the chain. When the clamp fasteners are tight, the tension must be rechecked. Hope this long-winded response helps!
