Oil System Plugged.
Remove the clutch cover, bar and chain. Clean the oiler hole and channel. Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up. If yes reassemble your saw.
If no a blunted, hooked piece of wire can be used to pull the hose in the oil tank out. I recommend the filter be replaced. Work your way through the linkage cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (clutch is probably left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly. GL

Check to make sure that the bar and the oil hole in the bar are not plugged full of saw dust. If they're good, then try placing the saw upright on the ground, while it's running, loosening the oil cap, and revving the saw up. Be careful not to let the bar, especially the tip, come in contact with any thing. Watch for oil to come off of the bar...it'll make a dark streak on the ground or you'll see some on the bar and chain. The oil cap is, or should be, vented...by doing this you'll eliminate whether or not the vented cap is the problem. If still no oil to the bar, remove the oiler itself. You'll probably have to remove the clutch first. Behind the oiler is a rubber line that comes from the oil tank. Pull this line out and check if it's plugged....there should be a weighted screen on the end. If this checks out to be clean, then you probably have a defective oiler.

CHAIN STRETCHS AS IT HEATS - KEEP CHAIN TIGHTENED CORRECTLY AND ALWAYS KEEP OIL IN OILER AND MAKE SURE IT OILS THE CHAIN. IF THIS DOESN'T FIX - REPLACE THE CHAIN. IF IT STILL HAPPENS THEN REPLACE BAR. WILL FAIL AGAIN WITHOUT OIL. POULAN WILL NOT HOLD UP WITHOUT CHAIN LUBRICATION. WORSE THAN OTHERS. IF CHAIN OR BAR OVERHEATED YOU'LL WORK ON IT MORE THAN YOU CUT. OIL IS THE KEY TO CUT WITH A POULAN!

Oiler mechanism to bar of ryobi 40cc 10532 18 inch


I get asked this question a lot , im gonna have to make a video on this subject someday .
but here:
1st ck your oil viscosity/SAE it should be 30 and say bar/chain oil
next dump out entire oil tank and wash out with kerosene (you'd be surprised what I seen come out)
then remove bar and chain , locate oil outlet it's in body of saw near adjustment screw , use a small can of air to blow in this port softly , use a touch more of kero to clean this all out , refill tank with proper oil !!!! and run saw (no need to put bar/chain back on yet ) might take several minutes but oil should start to flow out hole !! stop saw and reinstall bar/chain then run again .. fixed !! if no oil comes out ever your oil pump is gonna need some fixing

for a low cost oil I use filtered used motor oil cut down with a dab of kerosene

No oil is getting on chain. I cleaned the chain saw and especially the bar and bar groove, but still no oil getting on chain. Is there a hole that I can stick a wire in to make sure it's not plugged ?


Remove the bar and chain (release the chain brake first) and clean the side of the engine case where the bar fits to. Start the engine and observe whether oil oozes out of the side port. If ok, clean the small oil passages in the drive end of the bar that run out to the chain groove on each edge from the large holes. If no oil came out, then the oil pump, oil line, or oil tank filter may require service. Good luck!

Powercraft pc40-38cc chain oil not getting to chain manual is lost is there a simple fix?


Take the bar and chain off. Clean the engine area where the bar fits to and start the engine--oil should ooze out of the small port where you cleaned. If ok, clean the small drive-end oil passages that lead from the larger holes out to the chain groove on each side of the bar. They commonly fill with sawdust and dirt which plugs them. Clean the entire chain groove and check/oil the end sprocket if it has one. Reinstall the bar and chain, then start the engine and run the tip near some cardboard for a few moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!

How much chan lubricant should be used and what is the grade of the oil


You want to buy Bar grade oil, it is sticky and stays on the chain, it will properly lube the bar and chain with a full tank o gas. People have used, used motor oil but this wears down the chain and gears from the micro sized filings in the oil so use clean bar oil to lube the chain correctly. also if the chain sprocket has a small hole in the tip of the saw you will need to buy a gear lube pump to keep grease in the gear at the tip of the blade. This should be lube each time you fill the fuel tank and once half way threw the tank of fuel to make the bar last longer. The bar oil is a special grade of oil and requires bar oil for it to adhere to the bar and the bar guides. Hope this helps and thanks for using fix-ya.

Blade will run for about a minute. Then locks up if i give it a minute and force the chain to move it will run for a minute the i will have to wait again


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.

My chainsaw is not getting any oil to the chain.how can it be fixed.


First off, take off the bar and chain, clean up the grooves and the small oiling holes in the bar. Then without the bar on, start the saw, see if oil comes out of the oiling hole, if not, dump the oil out of the saw, put some gas in, rinse out well, spray brake cleaner works well, too. Refill with oil and see if its oiling yet, make sure to check if it has an adjustable oiler, open it up a bit if need be. Use only bar and chain oil, not car oil!

Chain moves while idle


Hello there. Regarding the bar oil, many loggers plan their work so that they are out of bar oil at the same time that they quit for the day because bar oil has a tendency to leak. Another method that has some success is to mix your bar oil with a heavier oil but the trade off might be less lube getting to the chain when you need it.

Regarding the chain moving in idle, this is another common problem. You can usually slow the idle down until the chain stops, as you indicated, but I too have had chain saws where I finally just decided to live with it and be extra attentive to what was going on.

Bar sprocket smokes, gets hot spot


Sounds like you're not getting enough oil to the chain. Basically you've got an oil pump, pickup and filter involved in getting oil from the resovior to the chain/bar. If you cleaned the obvious area and the chain is not coated with oil, you may have a clog further up (inside) the oil delivery mechanisms. Also, drain the oil from the tank, and see if you can "blow" air through there. With the saw running & pointed down, you should be able to see oil on the ground being slung off the chain, if not, you are not getting enough oil to the chain.
