Release the chain brake, then remove the bar and chain. Clean the engine where the bar fits up to, start the engine, and look for oil oozing out of a small port in the engine side. Make sure to replace the thin oil with regular bar oil. If the oil does ooze out, then clean the small oil passages in the drive end of the bar--they run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each edge of the bar. If no oil oozes out, check the oil filter inside the tank. If ok, then the oil pump requires service--it is located just behind the clutch drum on the crankshaft. The clutch has left-hand threads and can be difficult to remove--you might wish to farm the oil pump repair out to a service shop that has the proper tools and procedures. Hope this helps!

My Woolf 900 generator starts fine initially. When put on load (600w) it is reluctant to get up to speed (45secs) but eventually gets there. When load is taken off it doesn't go back to idle and event

Does it have and automatic idle? If so cut it off and see if engine can run at 3600rpm no load. If still stalls, your jets(brass tube) have something blocking holes and carb needs either a real good clean in a dip, rebuilding, or replacing.

If the brake has been entirely removed, then check the lubrication and tension of the chain--you should be able to turn the chain by hand fairly easily. If it looks dry with little or no oil, remove the bar and chain. Clean the side of the engine case where the bar fits to, then start the engine. Oil should ooze out of the side port. If nothing, then the oil pump, oil line, or filter in the tank may need service. If ok, then clean the bar drive-end oil passages--especially the two small holes that feed oil from the large holes out to the chain groove on each edge. When back together, run the bar tip at speed near some cardboard for a couple of moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil. There should be a volume adjustment screw head under the case near the chain return area--turn it CW to decrease volume. Hope this helps!

Brand new poulan pro 4620avx--bar oil is coming out of oiler but not getting onto chain

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
