The oiler will not work i took the bar and chain off cleaned everything but it will not oil the chain

Most machined will have an oil filter in the tank, drain the chain oil out and fill the oil tank with a suitable cleaning fluid, rinse the tank out a few times, this will help to clean the filter if it is blocked.

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

Remove the bar and chain. Start the engine and observe the side of the engine where the bar fits to it. The oil port there should ooze oil out when the engine runs fairly fast. If nothing, then investigate the filter within the oil tank for plugging, the oil line from the tank to the pump for any damage or decay, and the oil pump itself. The pump should discharge directly to the port that the bar receives. If oil did ooze out of the port on the first test, then clean the oil passages in the bar end--two small channels that run from each large hole out to the chain groove on each side. Clean the entire chain groove. Check the sprocket on the other end for fairly free turning--oil it's bearing. Examine the chain carefully--if it got so hot that it turned the teeth blue--replace the chain, it has lost it's tempering. Assemble bar and chain--adjust the chain so that the lower side doesn't droop from the bar, and you can turn the chain by hand. The teeth cut toward you on the bottom run. If the old chain is being reused, sharpen the chain carefully so that it cuts quickly without undue effort on your or the engine's part. Hope this helps!

Bar oil leaking constantly. How do I fix it?

These saws are of the self oiling type there is no tip or bottle it consists of a tank and a channel the oil flows thru and on to the bar by gravity. There is a type of bar oil system on some saws that come with a button you push which In turn pumps oil onto the bar. But the poulan is not one of them. I have a 15 year old farm hand 20" bar and a two year old poulan wild thing 18" and both leave there oil in the case when sitting I beleive the fix would be drain it after use and clean up.

Chain oiler does not seem sufficient

The chain oiler injects oil into the rear of the bar where the cover mounts over the sprocket. Take the bar off and clean out the oiler hole. There is usually some buildup of sawdust in the hole. Clean out the grove that the chain guide runs in all the way around the bar. You can see the injector nozzle under where that bar was when you removed it. Sometimes there is an ajusting screw there to increase oil flow.

Chain oiler

take off cover to the bar, remove chain and bar. spray degreaser or hot soapy water in and around the interior housing. look carefully and you should see a small hole that is where the chain lube comes from. typically all you need is a good cleaning in this area. hope this helps.
