Question about Poulan Pro PP5020AV 50 cc Gas Powered 20-in Chain Saw with Case
I bought a Poulan pro chainsaw recently. It starts very well. When I stop using it, it makes a metal rattling noise inside the saw engine. It has been doing that for a few uses. Now after operation for a while it will seize up. I can free it up by taking the carbeurator cover, rotating and cleaning everything and sprinkling bar and chain oil over the entire chain. It has gas mix and bar and chain oil in the saw as well.
Personally too much hassle prefer Stihl Chainsaw more reliable Seizing is caused by lack of lubrication, First check all level has oil pump seized or is it sump type when running oil circulates all way round, Still there has to be a oil reservoir if this is bone dry theres your problem the rattling is metal on metal with no protection and the damage is seizing caused by lack of oil I have two chainsaws both have oil sumps and are kept full, please check hope this helps

SOURCE: poulan Super 1800 16" chainsaw .
My name is Dennis and I hope to be of assistance.
This sounds like a kink in the chain and I would try a new chain because this can be a very small kink and very difficult to find and straighten out. If you must put the chain saw in a vise by clamping the bar and run the chain back and forth from the sprocket to the bar grove under operating tension and locate the misalignment at the bargrove. Now you have located the problem but the fix is still sweat away, and with some luck you may be able to spring the chain straight and have the link flexable to opporate without a hitch.
Glad to be of assistance. Please rate the solution because i can learn from your rating.

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.

no bar oil should just hurt your chain and bar. remove them and try to start saw. if it still won't start you have other problems you may have to buy a new bar and chain

It's possible that the carburetor diaphragm in the lower chamber has hardened or cracked. Does the primer bulb fill with fuel after several pumps? If not, try moving the line that comes up from the fuel filter to the carburetor over to the primer port that normally connects to the other carburetor connection. Try to pump fuel again--if successful, then there is blockage within the carburetor which should be cleaned with spray carburetor cleaner inside and out. There is a small filter screen inside the main body that can be easily plugged with stale fuel. Hope this helps!
