Poulan 14'' electric chainsaw model 1420 leaking oil to the point where every 20 minutes I'm adding oil. Any suggestions??

Go up in viscosity. You can mix a heavier oil into what you have and still have enough oil on the bar and chain.Add a little of the heavier oil at time and feel for heat changes on the blade.

Poulan 14" electric, model# PLN1514

Hi there, a couple of features come to mind that may be the cause of your problem.

Firstly, make sure that the saw is unplugged from the power supply.
  • The chain brake is active and wont allow sprocket movement and hence the chain. If necessary, pull the front guard (in front of the front handle) back until it clicks.
  • Electric saws generally have an additional motor-stop feature built into the trigger mechanism which is deactivated when the trigger is squeezed. So, in order to move the chain along the bar the trigger needs to be squeezed releasing the motor-stop. A tip - wear gloves when handling chains and move the chain towards the bar tip ie in the direction of the cutters - if the chain suddenly stops you wont remove several layers of skin in the process ! better still use a screwdriver against the back of one of the cutters and move it forwards - there should be some resistance and there should be no slack chain on the underside of the bar. Hope this helps.

Oil leaks out of it even when not using el-14 electric saaw

Sounds pretty normal to me. Every chainsaw I've ever had leaked chain oil. Unless it's a LOT of oil, it's probably normal.
