Refrigerators are one of the households most engineered appliances. IT must work 24 hours a day for years. The electrical parts are often sealed in a plastic substance to insulate the connections. Heat and vibration in sufficient quantities can disturb or disrupt nearly anything given enough time. You most likely have the residue from insulation.
This prompts several concerns, the fridge is not adequately vented. (items stored anlong the sides or in the rear of. Dust accumulation on the coils and on the fan blades resulting in poor air circulation, Insulation break down promotes the compressor being inefficient; this draws more current which make it run hotter on and on...

It is a situation where once the decay starts, it will eventually lead to failure. How long, there is no telling.

It will not oil the chain


Release the chain brake and remove the bar and chain. Clean the area on the engine case where the bar fits up to. Start the engine and note whether any oil oozes out of the small port there. If nothing, then the oil pump, oil lines, or tank filter require attention. If it oozes ok, then clean the small oil passages in the drive end of the bar that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each edge. Check the oiling by running the assembled saw tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!

Stihl MS 210 will run, but will not oil the chain. What is wrong with it?


Remove the bar and chain, clean the engine area where the bar fits up to. Start the engine--oil should ooze out of the small port in the side. If nothing, the oil pump, lines, or tank filter need service. If oil does ooze out, then clean the bar drive-end small oil passages that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on both sides. Clean the entire chain groove as well. Reassemble the bar/chain and run the bar tip at speed near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!

No oil getting to my chain


Release the chain brake, then remove the bar and chain. Clean the area where the bar fits to on the engine. Start the engine to see if the oil oozes out of the small port. If nothing, then the oil pump, oil line, or tank filter will require service. If oil does come out, then clean the small oil passages in the drive end of the bar that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each edge. Re-assemble the bar and chain--adjust the chain so that it just comes up to the lower bar edge, but you can still turn it by hand. Make sure the chain teeth cut toward you on the lower run of chain. Run the bar tip at speed near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments. Hope this helps!

The chain oil is not feeding to the chain/bar


Release the chain brake and remove the bar and chain. Clean the engine area where the bar fits up to, and start the engine--oil should ooze out of the side port there. If nothing, then the oil pump, oil line, or oil filter in the tank may have failed. If it oozes ok, then clean the drive end of the bar--especially the two small passages that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each edge of the bar. Re-assemble everything, then run the saw bar-tip near some cardboard for several moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil. There should be an oil volume adjustment screw head under the case near the chain return area--turn CCW to increase flow. Hope this helps!

Have Ryobi 40cc 18", have


Release the chain brake and remove the bar and chain. Clean the side of the engine where the bar fits to, then start the engine and see if oil oozes out of the side port on the engine. If it does, then clean the small oil passages in the drive end of the bar that run out from the large holes to the chain groove on each edge. If the oil does not ooze out of the port, then the oil pump, oil line, or oil filter in the tank may need service. Many oil pumps utilize a plastic gear that takes drive from the crankshaft behind the clutch and are prone to stripping the teeth of the gear. Hope some of this helps!

Bar oiler is not working. chain and bar gets hot


Remove the bar and chain, then start the engine to see if oil oozes out of the engine side port where the bar fits up to. If it does, then clean the small oil passages that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each side in the drive end of the bar. If no oil comes out, then check the filter inside the oil tank for plugging. If ok, the oil pump may be in trouble--some makes place the pump inside the case where the oil port is located, and others use crankcase impulses to drive the pump. The first type is driven from the crankshaft and commonly use failure-prone plastic gears to drive the pump. When you get oil oozing from the case port and have re-assembled the bar and chain, run the engine at speed for several moments with the bar tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!

No oil being fed to bar


Yes as it helps keep a loose chain from jumping into the case side. Remove the bar and chain, then clean the side port area. Start the engine--it should ooze out oil from the case side port. If nothing, inspect the oil pump, lines, and tank filter. Once oil comes out, clean the drive end of the bar oil-passages--especially, the two small channels that feed oil from the large holes out to the chain groove on either side of the bar. Clean the entire groove and check the sprocket tip for free operation. When assembled, check for proper oiling by holding the bar tip near a piece of cardboard and running the saw at speed for a few moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the cardboard. Hope this helps!

Husqvqrna 455 ranger 18" Will not oil the bar.


Remove the bar and chain. Start the engine to see if any oil oozes out of the side of the engine case. If it does, then clean the oil passages in the drive end of the bar--especially the two small channels that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each side of the bar. Clean the entire groove. If oil did not ooze out of the engine case, then you will need to investigate the oil pump, lines, and tank filter. When everything is back together, start the engine and run at speed for several moments with the tip of the bar near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the cardboard. 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.
