The next step is to check the pick up filter, and the oil pump itself, to do this you will need to remove the clutch and sprocket as the pump is behind here, unfortunatley you need a special tool to remove the clutch, part no. 530031112, this tool fits into the clutch centre, it has a 19mm nut on the end so as to jar the clutch off against compression ( left hand thread ) once removed you can get at the pump, once the pump is removed you can check the plastic worm gear for wear, you can also pull the pick up pipe out and clean the filter. there is a trick that some times works, drain the oil tank, now fill it with a suitable cleaning fluid, give it a good shake, rinse it out two or three times, this will help to remove any dirt in the oil filter.

Stihl 028 av super not oiling


Part of the routine service while sharpening the chain and adjusting the chain tension is to remove the guide bar to clean the slot and to clean the side of the saw case of any and all impacted crud. This impacted crud many times inhibits the oil flow to the bar causing it to appear as though the oiler is not oiling. Make sure you clean the discharge port of the oil pump...it will be the opening that aligns with a slot in the bar to transfer the oil to the chain.

After cleaning and reassembling, start the saw and rev it up for 2 to 3 seconds and observe the bar tip as it is aimed against a clean piece of cardboard. If the oiler is working, within this time frame, a thin film of oil will appear as it is slung off the bar tip.

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.

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

Chain is not getting oil


Start with the simple:
  • Make sure you have enough oil in the tank.
  • Then take off the bar and clean any saw dust out of the bar groove, especially by the oil holes. This can be accomplished with a raker adjustment tool or a putty knife. Next clean the oil holes in the bar and oil slot on the saw head.
  • If this doesn't solve your problem, your oil pump may need adjustment, or replacement.
  • Your owners manual will have the directions on how to adjust the oiler.

Flymo 2200 chain oil leak when machine is running


That chainsaw should leak oil off the bar. A small amount of oil flipping off the chain is how it is suppose to work. If it is a large amount of oil dripping from near the sprocket then you probably need to do some cleaning.

Automatic Oiler is not working on my Husquvarna 45


This usually means the oiler hole behind the bar & chain is plugged. you need to remove the bar & chain, clean the body of the chain saw in front of the sprocket/clutch assembly. look for a small hole & clean out using something like a toothpick & wd40 or penetrating oil.

Mcculloch em300s electric chain saw stopped oiling the chain. I noticed the oil had all flowed out in storage shed and when I refilled it and used it I noticed the chain and bar were dry.


This is a little complicated so I’m going in small steps.
http://www.m-and-d.com/parts.html
Click “Illustrated Parts Diagrams ON LINE”
Click “Click Here for Parts Lookup”
Changes to “Select OEM” Window reads “Briggs & Stratton ▼” Click the arrow and select “McCulloch Power”
Click “Electric Chain Saws” The model number of your saw is probably on a tag affixed to the bottom. The tag also displays the serial number.
If it is a 300S the hyphen is the bar length.
I looked at the 300S-16 (same oiler parts as -14)
  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar) Clean the saw’s oiler hole and channel. Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up. If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Item 15 has a filter on the bottom check it first, insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). If good I’d look closely at item 17. I can’t get enough detail from the IPL but that is the logical culprit.
Oil systems on all Mac Electrics appear pretty basic. Good Luck

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.
