Getting oil to the bar often are not caused by the automatic oiler but by a dirty oiler hole in the chain saw bar. On most Poulan Saws, the oiler hole is just above the rear slot on the bar, which rests on the bar studs. You should always clean this hole after every use with a small screwdriver or knife; clean out any sawdust or compacted oil. Use an air compressor if you have one to blow this hole clean.

Good Luck!

    It's possible, but not likely, that it was assembled wrong.

    The automatic oiler on your chainsaw regulates the oil output on the chain during cutting. This adjustable screw, located on the bottom of the saw, lets you control the amount of oil that is dispersed. Use a screwdriver to try adjusting the automatic oiler screw, located underneath the saw. Turn the screw towards the "Plus" sign, (if it has one), to increase oil.

Hello. Thin your bar oil just a wee bit with some kerosene. If you have a gallon of bar oil add 1/4 cup of kerosene, stir it up and you will be fine. For starters also, directly apply some bar oil to the chain so that you are always using a well lubed chain. Joe

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!

The automatic chain oiler does not get oil to the chain. Yes, it has chain oil. The black tube to the top chamber at the bar, seems to be plugged and I cant get it off to clean it out. Thanks, Steve


I have never seen an automatic chain oiler that worked. Even new ones don't seem to work. Just pour a little used engine oil on the bar once in awhile like everyone else does.
In theory there is a small piston that rubs on an eccentric at the chain sprocket, and that sucks in oil and pushes it through a hole, into the center groove of the bar.
But if the piston is dry, it won't pump.
If the holes are clogged with sawdust, it won't work.

Chain oiler does not seem to be putting out enough oil,what can i do to increase the flow?


This model does not have an adjustable oiler. If the ports are clean and the pickup is clean, you may need to replace the pump. This is generally an inexpensive repair.

To much oil comes out of the chain oiler


Look for an oil volume adjustment screw located near the lower chain run, but on the main case rear or maybe underneath the case in the same area. Turn the screw CW to decrease flow. Remove the bar and chain to make sure the small oil passages in the drive end of the bar are not plugged. When everything is back together, run the saw tip near some cardboard at speed for a moment or two. It should throw off a thin line of oil onto the board. Hope this helps!

Poulan Pro Chain Saw Bar Chain Oiler Stopped Flowing


The filter can usually be caught with a hooked wire and drawn up far enough to deal with the filter. Oil filters are not prone to plugging unless the oil used is contaminated. If you run the engine without the bar and chain attached, oil should ooze out of the engine side port. If nothing, suspect problems with the oil pump. Some saws use a plastic gear in the pump and can strip the teeth of the gear. You should find it located behind the clutch assembly. Once you have oil flowing from the engine, clean the bar drive-end oil ports that go from the large holes out to the chain groove on each side. Finally, run the bar tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil. I have no idea what the plastic tube might be (a manual pumper perhaps?). Hope this helps!

It seems like the chain is not getting any oil earlier in the day the saw was fine. I had to replace the chain and started sawing on a tree and the chain just smoking and burning the wood. It does not look...


Are you using any oil in the oil resivour? The oil lubricates the chain on the bar. I would guess that you installed the chain backwards. If the chain moves freely on the bar it is getting lubrication. I have made that mistake before. check rotation and your new chain. Don't know what brand of chain saw you have, automatic oiler, manual oiler, ect. but would guess that the problem is with the chain itself. Hope it as simple as that.

Poulan oiler don't work


Common problem with Poulan and Craftsman gas saws. Take off the chain and chain guide and clean out all the saw dust etc. Start saw without chain and look for port where there are signs of oil. If port is clear of sawdust, then it is likely the pump which is located behind the chain break assembly. you can get the diagram on Poulan website and the replacement pump will cost about $15 - $20 to replace yours.

Oiler thus not deliver oil to the chain


Take the chain and bar off and run a small drill by hand into the hole where oil comes out. If it is not blocked you can "stretch" the hole a little bigger and hopefully resolve this.
