The saw runs but chain doesn't turn and it starts t smoke, is the clutch bad ?

Sounds like you haven't read the manual.! Is the chain brake still on.?? The chainsaw has a centrifugal clutch, the more the saw revs, the harder the clutch grips. Sounds like you have the chain brake applied and the clutch is trying to turn the drum which is being held by the brake band

How do i Tighten chain

Unplug the saw.
Lay the saw on it's side so the chain and bar are up (lay it on 4X4 blocks or something similar so the motor housing doesn't make the saw rock back and forth) Loosen the two 1/2 or 9/16 nuts... don't take them off, just loosen them a turn or two. Look toward the saw where the bar comes out (the front of the housing where the blade comes out). You will see a small screw head. Turn the screw clockwise (as if you were tightening it) As you turn that screw, the chain will tighten. Put on some gloves and pull the chain around the bar (as if the saw was running, but you are the motor). The chain should move with a little resistance. Pinch the chain at the top-middle of the bar and pull the chain up away from the bar. the chain should pull away from the bar no more than 1/16 to 1/8 inch. If you look carefully between the bar and the chain, you'll see the dogs that run in the groove in the outside circumference of the bar. None of the dogs should be fully exposed when you pull up on the chain (in other words, None of the dogs should come completely out of the bar's chain groove when you pull up on the chain. Now, tighten the two nuts on the back of the bar. Snug them down good... if the bar slips on those two nuts, the chain will come off while you are cutting.

Good luck

I don't mean to sound offensive, but is the chain on the right way? I've put 'em on backwards, even started the saw before I noticed. And is the chain running when the motor runs?

If the chain is right then you may have gotten a chain with a bad grind. Never heard of it but it could sure happen. Get back with me if the chain is right and it's turning- we'll get it to cut.

Chain jammed on plant won't run after pulling most of plant from inner part of chain. Makes humming noise

The humming is the motor trying to turn. Remove the drive end cover from the bar and chain--back off the chain adjustment CCW several turns. If the saw has a chain brake, release it. When the cover is loose, remove the bar and chain, inspect the entire mechanism for any damage--particularly the chain itself. Run the motor without the bar and chain, and check for oil oozing out of the side port in the motor case where the bar fits. To reassemble, fit the bar in place after cleaning the small oil passages in the drive end, then fit chain over the sprocket. Pull the bar outwards to tighten the chain, then fit the cover and fasteners finger tight. Adjust the lower run of chain up to the bar (the lower run of teeth cut toward you), but not so tight that you can turn the chain by hand. Tighten the fasteners and recheck chain tension. Chain saws don't seem to like cutting hedges and other small branch, but tough bushes and the like. Make sure the chain teeth are properly sharpened. Hope this helps!

Where can I find a replacement bar and chain for my saw?

Remove the bar and chain from the saw. Take these parts to a saw servicing dealer who can match the bar and chain. Be sure to clean the area where the bar mounts. Run the saw for a few moments--the oil port in the side of the case should ooze out oil. Install the bar first, then thread the chain onto the sprocket, then work it over the bar. Pull the bar out until the chain is fairly tight, then fit the cover, but leave the mounting nut(s) finger tight. Turn the chain adjuster until the chain doesn't droop from the bar, but still be able to turn the chain by hand. Tight the mounting nut(s) and recheck tension. Run the saw at full speed with the tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the cardboard. Hope this helps!

Chain saw motor runs but chain doesn't

There are a couple of reason the saw blade will not turn.
- Make sure you have bar and chain oil in saw.
-Make sure oil is running on the saw blade and chain.
-Make sure the clutch is not stuck.
- Make sure the bar sprocket is not frozen.
-The safety kick back guard needs to be re-set.
-Shut off saw. Push and pull guard.
Please let me know what you find.

My chain saw will start and idle fine, however the chain will not spin and if you try to give it gas the engine will begin to smoke like its running hot and stall out

Your chain may simply be too tight or the brake could be on. Pull back on the Kick Back bar in front of the handle and with the saw not running try to rotate the chain by hand. If it will still not rotate losen the bar mounting bolts and turn chain set screw out a little at a time until chain turns. Retighten and recheck chain. The chain should be able to be pinched from the bottom of the bar, but snap back in place and rotate by hand. Caution chain wil be sharp use gloves or heavy cloth when turning. If all this works out and you still have same results, mix up a new batch of gas/oil and drain saw's tank and put in fresh. Should work now hopefully. Also, one other thing to look for when a saw's chain will not turn is debrie jammed into the sprocket area. In which case may have to take chain and bar assembly apart and clean and then reassemble. God Bless
