Question about Poulan Pro Chain Saw 46cc 20"
The chain could be stretching. Are you using a good quality bar and chain lube? Never use old motor oil. Once the chain has jumped several times it may be bent.
Properly adjust the chain and keep an eye on it while using. start with a new bar and chain and watch the tension. You can also replace the tool less cover with a standard cover for about $25

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.
