Set the chain brake to 'off', then remove the bar and chain. Clean the side of the engine where the bar fits up to, then start the engine--oil should ooze out of the port in the engine side. If nothing, you will need to check the oil filter in the tank for plugging, then repair or replace the oil pump if the filter is ok. If it does ooze oil, clean the small passages running out from the large holes in the drive end of the bar out to the chain groove on each side. These passages commonly plug with sawdust/dirt while running. Hope this helps!

How to correct no oil flow to bar on Model172.34120


ive not done much with this model but I can give you some basics on why I see lots of chainsaws loose there oiling of bar
(1) Wrong oil used in supply tank- most all chain saws take 30 wt bar chain oil . this is a lite/fine oil and needs to be so it flows thru small ports and pump on saws
(2) fine sawdust in supply tank - I guess anything can fall in the tank but I do find theres a lot of junk that falls in there over time , if it don't flow like oil does then it don't belong in the tank
(3) sawdust jammed in bar ports this id say is the biggest one I find , seems sawdust (all different size pieces) finds its way into the fine ports that oil is suppose to flow thru , sawdust mixed with oil makes a darn fine plug !!!

other than these simple things above , most saws have lots of parts that can break and fall off look for something just not right looking and sometimes it will be very obvious whats missing

Oiler mechanism to bar of ryobi 40cc 10532 18 inch


I get asked this question a lot , im gonna have to make a video on this subject someday .
but here:
1st ck your oil viscosity/SAE it should be 30 and say bar/chain oil
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

Oil not goingg to the bgar


Have you cleaned the oiling hole in the guide bar.? Scrape out the full length of the guide bar using a cleaning tool. There is an oiling hole at the back of the bar on either side which the oil flows into.

Is oil being pumped out the saw.? Remove side casing and guide bar, run the saw and check the flow.

The saw is a 385xp. We have changed bars and chains numerous times. When sawing the bar gets hot enough to fry an egg and the chain stretches out. Onlynable to saw a minute or teo at the time. bar gets...


Overheating the chain/bar is usually caused by insufficient oil getting to the chain, but can be caused by the chain being too tight to begin with (you should be able to turn the chain by hand), grit in the chain groove, or a poorly sharpened chain. The saw has an oil volume adjustment screw on the lower part of the case near the chain return area. Turning it CCW should increase oil flow. Oil volume can be judged by running the saw tip at speed near some cardboard for a moment--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Chain sharpening condition can be judged by the sawdust residue coming from the cut--if a powder-like material, the teeth are not sharp or are improperly filed. You should not have to bear down excessively on the saw to make it cut quickly. Hope some of this helps!

No oil to bar


Remove the nuts that hold the clutch cover on, Then remove the bar and chain. Make sure the port hole in the bar is open for the oil to flow into the chain groove. The oil ports can get plugged by sawdust and chips. Bar oil is sticky. The bar and chain should be removed and cleaned on a regular basis. Clean the groove in the bar too. Also make sure the port on the saw body is open. Start the saw with the bar and chain removed, if oil doesn't flow from the port, then you have a faulty oil pump and will need to go in deeper to replace the pump parts.
Always use proper clean chainsaw bar oil. Using other types of oil can burn up your oil pump.

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!

No oil flows to chain


Depending on your knowledge and experience -
1. Find your manual and check on maintenance routines.
2. If no manual avail - clean your saw and your bar.
Bar - oil holes clear, groove clean etc
Saw - locate where the oil pumps out - ensure any guides, holes etc are clean.
3. If saw gas manual oil pump adjustment screw -advance the flow
4 Drain the oil tank checking for dirt etc and if necessary clean tank with a little of your fuel.
5.Refill oil tank AFTER it is clean and dry.
6. Replace bar/chain etc and test if flow is better
If still no good you may need to repair/replace oil pump -not that hard to do but if in doubt take it to a reputable dealer.

Lost manual - what type of oil does this chainsaw use. where can I find a manual?


I assume you are asking about bar oil. Most electric chain saws use 30 weight non detergent oil for the bar (the cheap stuff from your local walmart).

Please do not try to use bar oil intended for gasoline powered saws, as it is formulated to be very thick, and will not flow properly, wearing out your bar and chain prematurely.

MY ELECTRIC CHAIN SAW


With an electric chainsaw, you only require chainsaw bar oil. There is plenty of brands of chainsaw bar oil available at most hardware or pwer garden tool retailers. Use this oil and not any other generic car oil or anything like that as you will run into problems. Chain bar oil is designed to flow and the higher quality bar oils are better designed to adhere to the chain and tooth components to keep heat on the bar and chain down.
