How to tighten chain on 4620avx poulan pro


First, RTFM- read the manual. Lost it? No problem, download it from Poulan PRO website page for PP4620avx. Pick a version you like, save and read it. Google is your friend.
Chain Adjustment Part cut and pasted as follows:
Adjusting the tension:
Chain tension is very important. Chain stretches during use. This is especially true during the first few times you use your saw. Always check chain tension each time you use and refuel your saw.
1. Lift lever on bar knob and turn counter-clockwise 1.5-2 turns to loosen clutch cover.
2. Turn adjusting wheel (downward direction) to tension chain until chain solidly contacts bottom of guide bar rail. Lift tip of guide bar while adjusting tension. Tighten chain Adjusting Wheel
3. Use a screwdriver to move chain around guide bar to ensure all links are in bar groove.
4. While lifting tip of guide bar, tighten bar knob securely (clockwise).
Hand tighten only.

Be careful not to destroy the adjustment mechanism. When it breaks, go for a clutch cover with the simple adjuster that needs a "scrench". Longer term, learn how to search this info. Saves time. Now you can work on sharpening chains- very important.

The chain will not move. if it is off the thing it goes around is bound up tight.


If the chain will not rotate around the bar it is possible the chain brake has activated, grab the hand guard and pull it fully back to the top handle, it should click as the brake locks.

How to change cahain saw blades


If you want to change the chain bar you need to remove the cover on the side the bar enters. This is usually done with with a 1/2 inch wrench or if the tool-less model, completely loosen the hand nut on the side until it comes off. You will be able to how the bar is installed under this cover. Make note of the direction of the chain teeth to insure you put the chain back on correctly.

It is better to wear gloves when working with the chains also. Install the new bar and reinstall the side cover and retaining nuts. Snug up the nuts but not tight, adjust the chain with the chain adjusting screw or thumb-wheel for about a dime's width play between the bottom of the chain bar and the chain midway along the bar.

Chain will not move on chainsaw


Normal 0 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.

I have a poulan pro chaisaw leaking bar oil from the bottom


Remove the bar and chain. Clean the oil port on the side of the engine and inspect any seals for damage. Start the engine without the bar--it should ooze out oil when engine is running fairly fast. If ok, clean the oil passages in the drive end of the bar--particularly the small passages that lead from the large holes into the chain groove. Clean the entire groove and make sure the end sprocket (if equipped) turns freely. Reassemble the bar and chain--tighten the tension until the chain does not droop from the bar bottom (chain cuts toward you on the bottom run), and yet moves freely by hand. Hope this helps!

I installed a new chain, adjusted tension, and saw will not cut.


Look closely at your chain, I'll wager it is the opposite direction.
637f977.gif Chain adjustment
  1. Make sure the chain brake is off (gloves will protest your fingers).
  2. If necessary, loosen the bar nuts that are clamping the clutch cover in place (or whatever holds the clutch cover and bar on). They don't need these really loose - finger tight will do.
  3. Ease the tension adjustment until the chain is obviously loose.
  4. Using one hand, hold the nose of the bar up.
  5. While holding the nose up, adjust the tensioner so that the center of the chain just touches the underside of the bar, add a touch more.
  6. Continue holding the nose of the bar up & tighten up the bar nuts / bolts / quick-release system. HTH

POULAN CHAIN SAW MODEL 1420 ''Chain came off track


Chain is probably stretched. SAFETY FIRST. Electric saw, make sure power is unplugged. Gas saw, make sure sparkplug wire is removed. Remove the cover where the bar is attached to the saw. U should see an adjustment screw for chain tension and one or more bar lockdown screws. Loosen the lockdown screws and turn the tension adjustment screw to permit the bar to slide back toward the motor. Put the chain back in the bar track all the way around. Adjust the tension screw to tighten chain enough you can't pull it out of the track at any spot. Slide the chain by hand at least one complete revolution feeling for any rough spots. If it moves freely, turn the tension screw enough to tighten the chain properly. Correct tension should allow you to pull the chain appx. 1/16 to 1/8 inch from the bar. Tighten the lockdown screws, replace the cover. Rotate chain by hand a couple of revolutions again to check for smoothness again before starting the saw.

Chain falls off Poulan PP3516AVX


The bar needs to be adjusted. What this means is the long, sliver arm that sticks out and has the chain wrapped around it is in too far. You will need to find what is called a 'set screw' or 'set bolt', which you can loosen and then adjust the bar in and out, which will tighten or loosen the chain. Keep in mind that you should have a little slack on the chain or you will burn up the bar. Also, make very sure that the chain is good shape. A chain that pops on you can take an eye out or fingers off of your hand if you're not careful.

I have a Poulan Pro PP3516AVX chain saw. I used it


Their not the best saws but make sure the nuts holding the bar and cover on are tight after adjusting chain sometimes improper cutting will continue to kick chain off bar.
