The adjuster screw is on the r/h side of the machine, turn the machine on its side ( starter side down ) now at the bottom l/h side of the drive sprocket you should see a screw, undoing it will increase the oil flow.

How does the oiler work on a poulan micro xxv


The oiler operates off the crankshaft under a cover behind the sprocket. Find the oil port near the back end of the guide bar where the oil pump injects the oil onto the chain. That port could be plugged. Your little Micro probably does not have an adjustable oiler but just in case invert the saw body and see if there is a + and - in the casting just under the sprocket. If so, moving the slotted adjustment towards the + increases oil flow.

Sometimes sawdust enters the tank when being filled and plugs up the inlet to the oil pump. Keep an old 1" paintbrush with your oil can so you can brush away the debris before opening the oil tank to fill while in the woods.

How do I adjust the amount of oil that goes on the blade. It seems to dump a lot of oil on the blade and blade guide. Goes everyplace


Sorry but this model is not equipped with an oil flow adjustment screw.

The clutch cover area must be saturated with lubricant to properly lubricate the bar and chain and
to ensure the long-term durability of your chain saw.

One thing you could try is to purchase a slightly thicker oil. I got some once at a auto part store and it had anti-sling ingredients.

HOW TO CONTROL THE OIL FLOW AND ADJUST THE CHAIN FOR AN ELECTRIC CHAIN SAW


The oil flow is not adjustable
Check the bar to see if it has something that looks like a flat head screw that you can turn, it is possible that it is equipped with an EZ adjust bar where you can make tension adjustments without loosening the cover. If not, loosen the bar nuts and use the tension screw on the back of the cover to make your adjustments.

I have a Poulan 20" chain saw that keeps leaking out the bar oil every time I put it in the container and store it. What causes this and can it be fixed by myself?


Most chainsaws have an adjustment for bar oiling and its quite normal for a chainsaw that is stored for long periods of time (weeks or even days) to leak out the bar oil. This is normal for chainsaws stored for several weeks or more.

Some of it may be reduced by adjusting the rate of flow for the bar oiler, read your manual carefully before attempting to adjust it. Adjust to too slow a flow rate will have adverse effects on performance and can lead to premature chain or bar failure.

Recommend that if you are going to store your chainsaw for more than a couple of weeks, drain the bar oil back out if it into a container (strain it through a paper towel before returning to your bar oil can). Also, you really should drain almost all the fuel and then run it until it shuts off if you are storing it for a month or more.

When my saw idles bar and chain oil drips majorly and i don't know if there is an adjustment


What kind of saw is it? On my Echo, if you take the chainbrake/bar cover off, there is a screw behind the clutch that adjusts the oil flow.

Some saws have a rubber hose connecting the oiler to the oil tank. That hose could have worked itself loose or be damaged.

The oil tank seal could have a leak.
