I have found that the port in the bar is a likely culprit. Take the bar off and throughly clean it, as it can get stopped up. Depending on the age, there may be a problem with the line in the oil reservoir or the cap. It has to be able to get air. Good luck, pa

Before you tear apart and purchase a new oiling assembly. Remove the sprocket cover, bar, and chain. Above the bar studs there is a horizontal groove the oil should flow from. If it is packed with sawdust clean this out. After cleaning or it is clean start the saw with all of the items removed. You should see the oil flowing. If there is no oil the oil pump is bad or clogged. If it flows your bar is clogged. Clean the oiling hole on the bar and groove. Hope this helps.

Saw dust has clogged the passage way in the bar. take the bar and chain off and clean the groove where the chain runs, also near where the bar mounts to the saw there are holes in the groove that intersect with cross holes in the center of the bar, push a paperclip through top and bottom.
If this works for you please leave a rating, thanks

SOURCE: Can't get the chain oiler to work. Using standard bar oil.

You can always put some penentrating oil in the saw oil tube by the bar, spray it in with the plastic straw attatched. Sometimes this will clean things out. As far as the tube being un attatched,,,, taking case apart is usually the remedy - kinda takes a while... :) Hope this helps you, Rick.

when you say that you changed the gear,was that the plastic one?check the other gear that is on the pump itself.make sure that it isn't worn.then make sure it spins freely.if it doesn't that will be you problem.cleaning them has never worked for me.........just replace it and the plastic gear.with both being new you should have no problems with oiling.the little pump gear gets scored up inside and they stop spinnig fast enough to work properly.hope this helps let me know if you have any questions

Tip

Checking your chain oiler


Chain oilers are a vital part of keeping your saw running well. No oil can even cause the chain to bind up. Over a period of time it can greatly increase the wear rate of your bar and chain reducing it's life. Chain oilers seldom go bad they just get clogged up with sawdust.

Remove the housing that covers that bar and sprocket. There are two plates on each side of the bar that set over the studs.They may be identical or slightly different depending on the saw but at least one of them will have a hole in it for the oiler. If you remove the bar and both plates you will see the oiler hole on the saw housing. This oiler injects oil through the plate and into a small hole in the bar where the chain picks it up and carries it around the saw. If this hole becomes plugged with sawdust it will keep your saw from oiling the bar proplerly. This hole should be cleaned out periodically. It's not a bad idea to remove the whole chain periodically and clean the chain guide all the way around the bar and get any sawdust buildup out so the oil can flow better.

The first thing I would look for are cracks in the oiler lines. If the saw has a manual oiler try to see if that will get oil to the chain. Check to see if the cap on the oil tank has a plugged vent hole.

What kind of oil do I put into my toro expand it chainsaw?


CHAIN OILER See Figure 18. ? Use Premium Bar and Chain Lubricant. It is designed for chains and chain oilers and is formulated to perform over a wide temperature range with no dilution required. ? Remove the cap and carefully pour bar and chain lubricant into the chain oiler tank. ? Replace the cap and tighten securely. ? Check and refill the chain oiler tank every hour when using an electric power head or every time the engine is fueled when using a gas power head. NOTE: Do not use dirty, used, or otherwise contaminated lubricants. Damage may occur to the oil pump, bar, or chain.

The automatic chain oiler does not get oil to the chain. Yes, it has chain oil. The black tube to the top chamber at the bar, seems to be plugged and I cant get it off to clean it out. Thanks, Steve


I have never seen an automatic chain oiler that worked. Even new ones don't seem to work. Just pour a little used engine oil on the bar once in awhile like everyone else does.
In theory there is a small piston that rubs on an eccentric at the chain sprocket, and that sucks in oil and pushes it through a hole, into the center groove of the bar.
But if the piston is dry, it won't pump.
If the holes are clogged with sawdust, it won't work.

Chain binds saw dies saw runs fine with out bar chain on clutch bearing? help poluan 3416 16 inch 34cc


Is your chain oiler working? If you're using saw a lot and the oiler isn't working properly the chain will get hot and bind up especially if the chain is too tight. Tighten the chain so that you can squeeze it in the center of the bar, with your second and third finger on the sides of your fingers (not a very strong grip) and you should be able to almost pull the chain out of the bar guide but not quite. Clean the oiler hole in your bar where the chain oiler injects oil into the bar. You can also run your saw without a bar and chain and see if the oiler is pushing oil out of the injector.

I have 3 older Poulan chain saws, XXV, 1800, and 2000, essentially identical saws. They all use a check valve from the crankcase to pressurize the chain oil reservoir. The check valve apparently uses an...


These oilers are called diaphragm oilers and work fairly well when the saw is new with great compression. As the saw wears out, the compression drops and a side effect is less oil pumped. The diaphragm is replaceable and it's not horribly expensive. Most good saws use a gear oiler - and even the newer Poulans use gear oilers. The gear oilers tend to have less problems and don't rely on engine compression.

Poulan oiler don't work


Common problem with Poulan and Craftsman gas saws. Take off the chain and chain guide and clean out all the saw dust etc. Start saw without chain and look for port where there are signs of oil. If port is clear of sawdust, then it is likely the pump which is located behind the chain break assembly. you can get the diagram on Poulan website and the replacement pump will cost about $15 - $20 to replace yours.

Chain oiler replacement


If it is Stihl 025 the chain oiler is on the bottom.First check if the worm gear(under the starter)is in good condition.Replace the starter(blocking the piston in the cilinder with a rope with many nods,that rope entering in the sparkplug hole).On the handle there are 4 screws on the right side (under 4 black plastic plugs,at the bottom 2 screws.)CUnlock them and take off the handle.At the bottom you can see the chain oiler( under the hose) the mark for right possition is there.Take off the oiler using a screw(lock clockwise into the oiler)and then pull it out.Clean with compressed air the oil hole.Put back together .Succes!
