Oil System Plugged:

  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar), if equipped with a sprocket nose ensure it rotates easily at least one complete revolution. Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out. Pay attention to the screen or filter on the free end (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up (oozes down side of saw). If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Work your way through the linkage (use IPL to identify components and locations) 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 a left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly.
If it does not oil on completion of 1 it is most likely a bad oiler or worm gear (see IPL). Post back with a make and model and I can be much more helpful.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Good Luck. HTH

First make sure the oil tank if full. If it is, then check the pump and orifice. There is a small pump in the chain oil tank that is driven by the same shaft that drives the chain. First you could check that the hole at the base of the chain is clean as it could be plugged and not allowing the oil to come out and if it looks good you will have to work your way back to the pump cleaning as you go but this takes some disassembling of the chain saw.

How to stop flow of oil on to chain?


Interesting.
Chain lubrication
is critical to the life of the bar and chain.
I'd be suspicious that you may not be using heavy viscosity chain lubrication oil.
Light weight oil will flow much faster.

Noisy automatic door opener, what can be used to lubricate it


Absolutely! When I had a repairman replace a broken spring, he used WD40 on hinges, rollers and the chain. Worked great. That's what I do now

The chain may have the procedure but the driver plate is worn out - what happens when you are not attached to the chain lubrication oil lubrication channels or if the chain is about or when the pump is not working.

How often does the chain need lubricating


Touch your chain, feel it, does it feel super hot, does it feel sandy, does it make alot of noise, is it loose?
Riding conditions is the main factor for your chain.
Do you travel down alot of dirt roads? the worse the conditions the more frequent lubrication is required.
If your chain gets alot of dirt on it then you'll need to wash that off and then lubricate it.
A well maintained chain will also save on your sprokets.
I check mine once a week, sometimes its good and sometimes its dirty and needs washed and lubricated.
I use chain lube that doesn't fly off and get all over my bike. In a pinch any lube will due.
