Both the smoke and it's lack of cutting ability are symptoms of the same problem. The Chain is dulled. Instead of cutting, it's just rubbing on the wood and heating up. It's also not a big deal to fix..
Your options are:
You will see they alternate directions. You may find it easier to do all the teeth in one direction (skipping every other tooth) then do the other direction. Up to you.
When you are done, check the level of your chain oil. Since it did get hot, you might manually oil the chain before trying out your handi-work.
Go cut some wood.

A new mounting bar would solve this issue. On that mounting bar there is a little piece that allows oil to drop onto the bar when you call for it or if this is a electric bar oil chain saw. Then it tracks when it needs to open.

That seems low to me. Page 15 in your manual is the only oil discussion I found. Usually there is an oil pump adjustment reference somewhere. I didn't see one beyond return it for service on page 15. Are the chain and bar hot after cutting a while? I recommend you not get a longer bar without an oiler adjustment. I think the hand of the EPA has been here.
An IPL (exploded parts list) for a 440 can be found here:
There is no oiler adjuster listed. HTH
Might be a good idea to copy the IPL,

Testimonial: "thanking you"
Ignition module gap
Place a business or index card between the fly wheel and coil, rotate until the magnetic attraction pulls everything tight together. Tighten the coil screws, rotate the flywheel until the attraction eases and remove the card. Ensure nothing contacts when flywheel is rotated.

Pull off the spark plug's rubber boot. Unscrew the spark plug with the socket wrench. Remove the spark plug and insert the piston stop tool into the hole. Remove the starter cover and turn the flywheel by hand until the piston contacts the stop tool.
Unscrew the brake band's cover screws with the star Allen wrench. Remove the brake spring from its anchor pin with the end of the screwdriver. Caution: this spring is under a lot of pressure and may pop out unexpectedly. Remove the brake band from its seat on the crankshaft.
Remove the E-clip that holds the washer, sprocket and clutch drum to the crankcase. Pull them off the crankshaft. Unscrew the clutch's bolt with the socket wrench. Loosen the bolt clockwise and remove from the crankshaft. Pull off the washer. Remove the clutch shoes and the clutch spring.
Twist the worm and drive spring clockwise and remove them from the crankshaft. Unscrew the oil pump's mounting screws. Take the oil pump off its seat and remove from the crankshaft. Remove the bottom washer.
Disassemble the oil pump. Knock out the spring pin on the bottom with a punch. Pull the bottom control bolt from its hole and remove the O-rings. Pull the end plug off housing and remove the pump piston, spring and washer.
