SOURCE: engine smoke when chain brake on
It sounds like the band is too tight and the smoke is coming from a burning clutch. You need to get your owners manual and loosen the band before you burn the parts up.

Grasp the forward most upper handle (hand guard), move it forward, did it click? If no the brake is released. Pull it aft until the brake latches open (clicks), may require some grunt at rear extreme.
Remove the clutch cover, bar and chain. Start the saw, does it still smoke? Yes post back below, no reassemble your saw, ensure the brake is open. Start teh saw. Smoke? If yes post back below.
If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Good Luck. HTH

Sounds like the saw is running lean. Check the fuel filter, air cleaner and muffler for plugging. Check the condition of the fuel lines and that the fasteners on the carburetor are tight. If all ok, turn the 'L' and 'H' jet needles on the carburetor CW to stops (lightly), then back out each 1-1/2 turns CCW. This is a basic setting and the engine should start and run. Allow the engine to warm up, pull the throttle full on, and adjust H CW until the engine starts to speed up, but continues to 4-stroke. Proper adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. This produces the most power and least heat. Allow to idle and adjust L CW until the engine runs fairly well, yet will allow it to 'follow the throttle'. Set the idle speed screw til the chain stops moving, but keeps the engine running. Hope this helps!

have you made sure that chain pitch and gauge are the same as the sprocket pitch pitches can be 3/8 lo pro 0.50 gauge
.325 x 0.50 gauge , .325 x 0.58 gauge
3/8 std x 0.50 or 3/8 x 0.58 gauge or 3/8 x 0.63 gauge
you could even have the correct drum but wrong rim sprocket on it
worst case is you could have mismatch bar and chain
make sure that bar adjjuster assy is working correctly
recheck chain / sprocket pitches and bar pitch and groove
be sure that you fitted chain to rim on sprocket correctly when you fitted bar and chain?
is the clutch cover pulling down tight ?
have a look and let me know if and what you find

Tighten the adjusting screw with the two nuts loose but snugon the middle of the chain on the top of the bar. Tighten the chain screw until the chain is loose enough to raise the chain up about 1/2 inch then tighten the mounting nuts tight. Then see if it is ok.
