SOURCE: POULAN CHAIN SAW BELT COMES OFF
My name is Dennis and I am here to assist you with your problem.
Please don't be offended with this answer because it sounds so basic but it happens to us all when we are in a hurry. That's the key phrase "in a hurry" with no more information that is described I will venture a few possibilities.
1) If the chane came off and was replaced and the saw stalls when you try to cut it's likely that the chain was bent slightly when it came off and it's binding in the groove of the bar.
2) If the chain came off and it's not binding in the bar, runs smoothly and should cut like crazy but dosn't, look at the image of the chain on the plastic cover of the drive sprocket near the bar adjustment nuts and note the angle of the teeth displayed. The chain may be on backwards, don't tell anyone but it happens to us all when were in a hurry.
Glad to be of assistance. Please rate the solution because I can learn from your rating.

the chain should not be sagging from bottom of bar.when you tighten the chain push the nose of saw up so that all of the slack is out of the chain.chain should snap back in the bar if you pull the chain up and let go.when i adjust a chain i push the saw forward to make the bar go up and stay there while i tighten the nuts.hope this helps, let me know

Where the bar meets the body of the saw there is an adjustment lug that will either push the bar outward tightening the chain or may be retracted allowing slack in the chain. When backed off (loosened) sufficiently, the chain may be removed for replacement. In order to use this feature, however, there are two bolts that secure the bar to the body that must be loosened prior to any adjustment and tightened bach up after making adjustments to the chain. The above will be enough to remove and replae the chain. If you are taking off the bar (that the chain runs on), you will need to remove the two bolts that were just loosened for the chain adjustment (above).

I think you are saying the centrifugal clutch does not engage. It should not at idle. Did you rev it up a little and it still not engage? There is a clutch face on sprung weights that should expand and turn the clutch drum above idle. Please see the “Handle, Chassis & Bar Assembly” detail for clutch illustrations.
A 2375 has an outboard clutch (the chain is between the engine and clutch drum).
2375 Type 7 (may not be your saw)
Use this as a guide to remove the clutch and inspect the parts:

A 4018 has an inboard clutch (only the drive sprocket extends into the clutch cover). Do this first then use the outboard procedure to remove the remaining clutch pieces.
PP4018 Type 2 (may not be your saw)

The C-clips tend to fly when being removed. Please wear eye protection and exercise care.
If these are not your saw it can be found here:
The dash number of your serial number is the type.
