Question about Poulan Pro 16-Inch 38 cc Anti-Vibration Chainsaw #PP3516AVX
Sounds like very tight chain or no oil getting to the chain. Set the chain so that it doesn't droop from the bar bottom and there should be a lightly oiled joint between the chain and bar. Is there bar oil in the tank? Some specialty bar oils are synthetic and become very gummy if the bar and chain are not cleaned after using this stuff.

Need to make sure your oiler is working. If not the chain will get hot and expand thus locking it up from friction. There is about a 1/4" hole in the rear of the bar where the oiler feeds oil to the chain. Sometimes this hole gets filled with sawdust. Clean it out and make sure you're getting oil to the chain. When you rev the engine and the chain turns you should see it throwing a small amount of oil off the tip of the bar towards the ground. If you don't see the oil then you need to get that fixed.
