Make sure the chain is not over tightened. When adjusting the tightness, ensure there is at least 1/8" of looseness by pulling up on the chain in the middle of the bar and releasing it. If a chain becomes overheated because of leaning on the saw when the chain is dull, or lack of oil on the chain, it may expand in the track and not turn freely.

New bar and chain should do the trick. ONCE IT GETS A LITTLE DULL T BUILDS UP HEAT AND STRETCHES. Use a good quality case hardened chain they last longer and are well worth the extra money.

If equipped, the chain brake may be engaged. Its the lever just ahead of the fore handle. (pull back on it)
If the clutch assy. were frozen, then the chain would move all the time.

the nut like end of the tention bolt should fit into a hole in the bar. Then as you unscrew the bolt later one it ill push the bar farther away from the bolt heal thus tightening the chain

Mitch if you attempted what is in the manual, and it is not working we would have to see and touch the saw to determine what has failed. If you loosened the bar bolts before trying the adjuster and it did not work, I suggest a trip to a local saw shop.
