Chain oiler not working

wow this seems to be a more frequent complaint with folks bringing me there saws to look at lately , what I almost always find wrong is debris in the oil tank hence it's in the oil pump too , this requires a total take apart and clean it out service , also folks seem to not know what oil goes in there and add just any kind they have (even 2cyc oil) me I like to say u use Bar chain oil , this most times is 30w or less if it gets any heavier or lighter the oil pump M/T's the oil tank out first before the fuel tank goes M/T , oiler is not adjusted correct if your not needing to add oil with every gas tank fill

Mcculloch Mini Mac 30 Oiler does not work. cant figure out if it is the Oiler or the manual pump to feed the oiler

I recommend contacting your local authorized service center for assistance.

You may contact the manufacturer, download manuals, check fuel/oil ratios, order parts, find your local service center, and view other resources using these links:

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.

My Poulan Pro PP4620AVHD bar oiler is not working at all. I have cleaned out the oil holes on the bar, but still no oil on bar. Is the pump located inside the oiler tank?

The pump should be located just behind the clutch assembly which needs to be removed to access the pump. Have you run the engine with the bar and chain removed? The oil should ooze out of the engine side port where the bar fits up to. If not, then the pump is certainly suspect. There is a filter in the oil tank which might be plugged. The clutch has left-hand threads and can be difficult to remove. Don't try to use an impact wrench with adapter as it will cause the flywheel key to shear. Hope this helps!

Oil it must be from the bar oil compartment is getting into the cylinder. The saw will start but lots of smoke. The bar doesn't seem to be getting enough oil. This is a PM 610

Good Luck Donald;
Your saw model is 600041; there are many prefixes and suffixes applicable to your saw, I defer to you determine the correct one. It has an impulse driven oil pump (all are similar). I suspect a portion of the oil pump has failed and engine vacuum is pulling oil into the crank case. You can find an IPL for your saw that will be may be helpful with oiler components and disassembly/reassembly. Your oil system appears to be quite complex.
Your IPL is here:
The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for the oil system but it is sketchy at best. Oiler components and part numbers are listed but may be on different illustrations. They are also beneficial with disassembly/reassembly:

The chain oiler quit working or is cloged and in not sure how to clean it or take it apart

Oil System Plugged.
  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar) Clean the saw’s oiler hole and channel. Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up. If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Work your way through the linkage cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (clutch is a left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly. GL
If no oil after 1 probably an oil pump. Post the make, model, and serial numbers below the advertisements and we can provide some more guidance.
