    This may sound sill, but is the chain sharp? If you are cutting deadfall, or wood that has been on the ground, there is a very good chance that it has sand/grit on/in it. This will dull a chain very quickly.

It does not take much to take the cutting edge off a chain saw. A few accidental excursions into sand or dirty logs quickly dull the teeth. Check that your chain cutting teeth are sharp, blunt teeth will overload the motor and cause it to run hot. Chains can be sharpened several times before needing replacement and can be done DIY or taken to specialist sharpeners.

CHAIN STRETCHS AS IT HEATS - KEEP CHAIN TIGHTENED CORRECTLY AND ALWAYS KEEP OIL IN OILER AND MAKE SURE IT OILS THE CHAIN. IF THIS DOESN'T FIX - REPLACE THE CHAIN. IF IT STILL HAPPENS THEN REPLACE BAR. WILL FAIL AGAIN WITHOUT OIL. POULAN WILL NOT HOLD UP WITHOUT CHAIN LUBRICATION. WORSE THAN OTHERS. IF CHAIN OR BAR OVERHEATED YOU'LL WORK ON IT MORE THAN YOU CUT. OIL IS THE KEY TO CUT WITH A POULAN!

My oregan power now chainsaw does not appear to use much chain oil


Make sure saw dust not blocking where oil comes onto chain-Make sure you are using correct chain oil for Season/Outside temperature-Summer or winter oil-Chainsaws on the whole use little chain oil-on inspection of chain and Bar area you should see a smear of oil-Check wood you have cut there should be small traces of oil if not clean unit and verify oil type.If this doesn't work return unit there is a Factory defect.

I have a POULAN PRO 3516AVX chainsaw that I have to tighten the chain after every cut . What gives?


If the chain is stretching then it is either poor quaility chain, or there is not enough oil getting to the chain, it is impotant to use a non fling chain oil so as to lubricate the bottom of the bar where most cutting is done. hold the tip of the bar close to a clean peice of card board, rev the saw, there should be a good line of oil showing on the card board.

My chainsaw throws the chain off every couple of cuts wont stay on


Release the chain brake, then remove the bar and chain. Lay the chain out on a flat surface and look for damaged links, or sideways bending of the chain. Replace the chain if you find any such damage. Clean the engine surface where the bar fits to, then start the engine--oil should ooze out of the small port there. If ok, then clean the small oil passages that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each edge of the bar. Re-assemble the bar and new chain (if required)--tighten the chain adjuster until the chain just comes up to the lower bar, but not so tight that you can't turn the chain by hand. Tighten the bar mounting hardware and recheck the chain tension again. The chain teeth must be properly sharpened at a consistent angle to assure rapid cutting which keeps the chain heat down. With a new chain, recheck the tension every so often as the chain will initially stretch when used. Test the chain oiling by running the bar tip near some cardboard at speed for a moment or so--it should throw off a thin line of oil. There should be an oil-volume adjustment screw on the engine to achieve this. Check the sawdust coming from the cut--it should be small chips and curls if the teeth are sharp, but it will be a fine dust if they become dull. Hope this helps!

Chain keeps coming off


Lay the chain out on a table or bench and check for bent/broken links, broken teeth, or damaged drive teeth. Inspect the bar for any damage and clean the small oil passages in the drive end. Inspect the drive sprocket for any tooth damage. Run the motor without the bar and chain for a few moments. Oil should ooze out of the small port in the motor case where the bar fits. If nothing, inspect the oil pump and lines. If oils ok, then reassemble the chain and bar making sure the bottom run of teeth cut toward you. Assemble the cover and mounting nuts finger tight. Tighten the chain up to the lower bar, but not so tight that it can't be turned by hand. Tighten the mounting nuts and recheck tension. Make sure the chain is properly sharpened as a dull chain will quickly loosen due to excess heat when cutting. Check the chain oiling by running the bar tip near some cardboard for a few moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!

My Stihl 028WB chainsaw will start and run a little, will cut for a short time but then the chain slows down and no matter if I hold the throttle wide open it will not cut fast and basically won't cut. The...


Check the engine running (it should 4-stroke at speed when not cutting, but will immediately 2-stroke when cutting) after removing the bar and chain. If the engine seems ok now, check that oil is oozing out of the engine side port. If ok, clean the oil ports at the drive end of the bar including the two small ports that go out to the chain groove on each side, then clean the entire chain groove. Oil the end sprocket (if it exists) and check it's turning. Reinstall the bar and chain, and adjust the chain until it just stops drooping from the lower bar, but not so tight that it can't be turned by hand. If no oil came out of the engine port in the first test, then troubleshoot the oil pumping system from the oil tank filter to the oil pump itself. The chain should cut at any running speed, just not as fast. Make sure that it is properly sharpened. Clean the air cleaner and the muffler if either is plugged. If you have further problems, suggest taking the machine to a Stihl repair center for carburetor service if needed. Hope this helps!

Chainsaw is smoking excessively when in use


White smoke is usually associated with burning antifreeze in an automobile engine, but in this case, trying to cut wet wood might be suspect. The chain must be properly sharpened and the teeth cut toward you on the bottom run of chain. When the chain is properly adjusted, it should not droop from the lower edge of the bar, but no so tight that you can't turn it by hand. Forcing a poor cutting chain into the kerf will overheat the chain and cause it to become loose quickly. Hope this helps!

It's like cutting with a butter knife - not really chipping the wood, but rubbing it, very dryly- changed the chain out and still same problem. Chain is on in correct direction. Cleaned out oil/lubricant...


Check for side play of the chain in the groove in the bar. If the chain can tip it leads to poor performance and cutting in a curved path, not a straight cut since the chain can wander. Also consider a more agressive chain since the standard "consumer" chain is designed to be extremely safe with a large raker which limits the depth which the chain can cut. Here is a good article on saw maintenance:

Husky 55, will not hold momentum while cutting wood. It seems to labor but I have changed chains and even put on one of the new ones I have.


Check that the air filter is clean and that the spark plug is clean with correct gap.

Also make sure the exhaust is clean, a clogged exhaust will provide poor power and also risks overheating the saw.

Make sure the oiler works properly and that you have correct chain tension.

Finally, make sure the carburetor is adjusted correctly. If you have no experience doing this I'd recommend you to learn from a professional how it is done, how it should sound and feel when it is correctly adjusted. Having the correct carb adjustment is extremely important in chainsaws.
