SOURCE: electric Poulan Pro 400E won't run

Loosen the chain as it could have run over something or tightened itself as the chain dried out. But if it won't turn and it just humms or does' nothing the motor may have overheated and locked up. The motor may smell burnt ( like a hot elecrric stove) and it may be melted together. If its halfway new and you have the reciept you can try to exchange it but certain kinds of failures may not let you get an exchange

My poulan pro pp400e chain stops on cut,and the motor still runs


So the chain stops and the motor still runs. Does it run at high RMP or just idles. It could be the chain brake. My clutch froze up on me after an hour of running. I had to let it cool and then take it apart to free it up.

My 18" Poulan is awsome,


When it overheats it may not be getting enoiugh oil. The oiler may be weak have it checked. I too, have a Poulan 18" Chainsaw and I think it is great. Everything I own is Poulan Pro or Troy Bilt. They are simply the best for the price.

My Poulan E300 Electric Chainsaw stop oiling the chain and bar


Hello JK; I am hesitant to answer this, these are all Poulan electric chainsaws that appear when the parts source is searched for Poulan Electric Chain Saws:

All are plumbed the same to my eye. I assume you cleaned and tested the oil pick-up within the tank. If everything you say is true if the pump is driven it should oil.
1. What causes the pump to pump? I cannot tell from the IPLs. If gas and not gear driven, an impulse line (pressure/vacuum) from the crankcase drives it. There can be no impulse line on an electric and I see no gear. Does it rotate to pump oil? What imparts the rotation?
2. What purpose does item 27 (pinion) serve? Is it supposed to drive the pump? Is it missing teeth?
3. What is the purpose of item 44 (check valve). If it is an oil tank vent, and not opening, you are creating a vacuum in the tank if the pump is operating. Loosen the oil cap and see if it oils. If yes replace the check valve.

I think Joe Schmoe is saying Poulan redesigned the oil system to eliminate all the hose couplings. It makes sense, one hose from oil pickup (filter on hose end in tank) to bar is much less likely to leak, also no restrictions for any particles in the hose to form a clot on. I see nothing on my research to support Poulan doing that. There are a couple of new models that I cannot find an IPL for so it is possible. I have headache JK. If this does not solve it is not because I did not give it my all. Please post back (below) with success or failure. If successful what was the cause. TIA

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

Electric Poulan Pro 400E won't run. Can't turn chain manually or turn chain sprocket either. Feels stuck and won't budge.


Loosen the chain as it could have run over something or tightened itself as the chain dried out. But if it won't turn and it just humms or does' nothing the motor may have overheated and locked up. The motor may smell burnt ( like a hot elecrric stove) and it may be melted together.
