Check that the bar oil ports are clean; there should be a small hole or slot on each side of the bar and these can become pluged with sawdust. Also clean the groove in the bar with a small screwdriver or bar cleaning tool every 8 hrs of operation.

If this does not fix the problem check the oil sump screen in the oil tank(usually on the end of a rubber hose); if no screen in tank: remove oil pump and clean(screen is sometimes in oil pump assembly).

next dump out entire oil tank and wash out with kerosene (you'd be surprised what I seen come out)
then remove bar and chain , locate oil outlet it's in body of saw near adjustment screw , use a small can of air to blow in this port softly , use a touch more of kero to clean this all out , refill tank with proper oil !!!! and run saw (no need to put bar/chain back on yet ) might take several minutes but oil should start to flow out hole !! stop saw and reinstall bar/chain then run again .. fixed !! if no oil comes out ever your oil pump is gonna need some fixing

for a low cost oil I use filtered used motor oil cut down with a dab of kerosene

My chain keeps freezing up on me and its brand new. how do I fix tha t on my husqvana 16 inch


Turn the chain brake off, then remove the bar and chain. Clean the side of the engine where the bar fits to, start the engine and observe whether the small oil port on the engine oozes out oil. If nothing and the oil tank is filled, put the saw back together and take it back to the seller for warranty repair of the oil pumping system or a fresh saw in exchange. Hope this helps!

Can't seem to get my oiler to work properly. oil emerges when i run the saw with the bar removed, but chain is dry and hot when run put together.


Some saw manufactures design their oilers to only work with their bars. Are you running the mfg suggested or stock bar? Chain? Stihl Chain is designed to use 30% less oil because of oil groves cut into each drive link directed to the rivets. So if your running an aftermarket bar/chain, the oiling ports may not line up. Especially if it oils with no bar & chain

Not getting any oil on the chain and the oil is full


Remove the bar and chain--clean the cover and case side. Start the engine and see if oil oozes out of the side port where the bar fits. Also, try the manual oil pump if it exists. If ok, clean the bar end oil-passages including the two channels that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each side of the bar. Clean the entire chain groove, and check the tip sprocket for free turning. If no oil came out of the port, then remove the rear case which exposes the two tanks, the oil pump and the bracket that holds the bar to the engine. The oil pump runs by use of crankshaft impulses and has a diaphragm in the pump body that may be damaged. Also check the tank filter fitting. When you get everything back together, run the bar tip at speed near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments of fast running. Hope this helps!

There is a pumped volume adjustment screw located near the rear case bottom and the lower part of the chain. Turn CCW somewhat to increase volume. Be sure to clean the bar oil passages including the two small channels that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each side. Clean the entire groove. When everything is back together, run the saw at speed with the bar tip near a piece of cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments. Hope this helps!

No oil to chain


Remove the bar and chain. Run the saw for a few moments--it should ooze out oil from a side port where the bar fits to. If ok, clean the drive end of the bar oil passages, particularly the two small channels that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each side. Clean the entire chain groove. If no oil came out of the port, the oil pump, connecting lines, and tank filter require attention. When everything is back together, run the saw for a few moments with the tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the cardboard. Hope this helps.

I need to see a diagram where the chain oil feeder is on a mcculloch eager ****** chain saw


Remove the rear case cover which exposes both tanks, the oil pump and the short coupling line that goes from the pump to the bracket that the bar assembly bolts to. If you remove the bar and chain, that exposes the side port that is coupled to the hole in the bar that distributes the oil to the chain. There is a screw in the case back near the bar that adjusts the oil volume. When the bar/chain is off, clean the side port on the engine, and start the engine. It should ooze out oil when running at moderate speed. Clean the oil passages in the bar end including the two small ports that go out to the chain groove on each side. After everything is back together, run the saw bar tip at speed near a piece of cardboard for several moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!

No bar oil is coming out. Emptied oil resevoir and blew air from compressor back through from oil outlet and still nothing. What could be the problem?


Normally, there are valves in the oil circuit that prevent oil/air movement in the reverse direction. There is usually an oil filter on the line inside the tank that occasionally will plug up. Remove same and check. An oil line can go bad as well as the oil pump. Some brands of saw use a plastic gear for the pump and the gear can strip it's teeth--check for same. When checking for oil flow, remove the bar and chain--look for oil to ooze out of a port on the engine case where the bar fits to. If ok, then clean the oil passages in the bar end, especially the two small passages that go to the chain groove on both sides of the bar. Finally, with everything together, run the saw at speed with the bar tip near a piece of cardboard for a few moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil on the cardboard. Hope this helps!

How do I put chain back on the Wen 14'' chain saw


Remove the chain drive side plate and remove the bar. Clean the drive area and inspect the drive sprocket for excessive wear. Run the motor for a short time to make sure that oil is being pumped out to the bar--is should just ooze out. Clean the bar chain groove and clean the oil holes at the drive end of the bar--especially the two small holes that go from the large oil holes out to the chain groove. Back off the chain adjustment screw several turns, then fit the chain over the sprocket (teeth cut toward you on the bottom) and then insert the bar into the chain and push the bar out till the chain is fairly tight. Apply the side cover and make sure the adjustment tang drops into the large hole at the rear of the bar. Install the mounting nut(s) to hold the plate and bar together. When run-up finger tight, turn the adjustment screw CW until the chain becomes tight enough that it doesn't droop from the bar, yet can be be turned by hand. Tighten the side cover nut(s) and recheck tension. If ok, run the saw for a few moments with the bar tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Keep the chain properly sharpened to reduce the chance of this occurring again. Hope this helps!

Makes high pitch humming sound, chain and bar heats up. Saw doesnt' cut


The bar and chain are running without oil. Take the side cover off where the chain is driven from and remove the bar and chain. Use compressed air to blow all debris from the area. Start the engine and watch for oil coming out of a small port near the clutch assembly. If oil passes (good!), then clean ( at the drive end of the bar) the two smaller holes and their passages into the track which the chain runs in. They are likely to be filled with sawdust and other debris. Clean the entire chain track around the whole bar. Use engine oil in the two small holes at the bar tip to lubricate the sprocket bearing. Back off the chain adjuster screw somewhat and reassemble everything--put the bar on first and then work the chain on, then the side cover--work the bar fore and aft to allow the small tang of the adjuster to drop into it's hole at the bar rear. Make sure that the cutting side of the teeth are pointing toward the engine on the bar bottom. With the cover on and mounting nuts slightly loose, adjust the chain tightness so that the chain doesn't droop away from the bar bottom, but still allows the chain to be moved by hand--remember to lightly oil the chain first with engine oil. Tighten the bar mounting nut(s) and recheck the chain for droop. Make sure that you have bar oil in the tank, then start the engine and hold the bar tip near a piece of paper or cardboard. After running for a little while, the tip should throw off a very thin line of oil. Next, if you have a vise, put the bar center into the vise so that the chain is free to turn. At this point you need to file each tooth to sharpness at 30 degrees from perpendicular to the bar and 10 degrees below chain horizontal. Make sure you use the correct size file for your chain. Work your way through one side, then work the other side--be consistent with cutting angles during filing as uneven filing will result in the chain trying to cut at unintended angles.
If no oil came out of the engine when running the bar-off test, make sure there is ample oil in the tank, then you have either a plugged inlet filter in the tank, tubing kink/breakage, or a defective oil pump. You must be sure that oil is being pumped from the chain drive area before putting things together. Hope this helps!
