SOURCE: Poulan Farmhand chainsaw chain tightens too tight for motor to move chain

Make sure the chain is not over tightened. When adjusting the tightness, ensure there is at least 1/8" of looseness by pulling up on the chain in the middle of the bar and releasing it. If a chain becomes overheated because of leaning on the saw when the chain is dull, or lack of oil on the chain, it may expand in the track and not turn freely.

Hi dortfran,
My name is Dennis and I hope to be of assistance.
This sounds like a kink in the chain and I would try a new chain because this can be a very small kink and very difficult to find and straighten out. If you must put the chain saw in a vise by clamping the bar and run the chain back and forth from the sprocket to the bar grove under operating tension and locate the misalignment at the bargrove. Now you have located the problem but the fix is still sweat away, and with some luck you may be able to spring the chain straight and have the link flexable to opporate without a hitch.
Glad to be of assistance. Please rate the solution because i can learn from your rating.
Thank you
Dennis

SOURCE: Poulan Wood Shark Chainsaw - wood smoking. Is chain on backwards?

I cannot tell you about a picture, but for one: chain direction, the bottom of the bar is where the cutting takes place, and therefore, looking at the chain, you will see, on the bottom, the antikick back link is sort of curved, and then the next part is the straight tooth. The highest part of this straight tooth is the sharp edge, and this high part should face towards the motor. The chain, on the bottom side of the bar, is pulled in towards the motor by the clutch/gear. That is your direction of travel.

As to cleaning the air filter, Hopefully you have access to compressed air, as in simply blowing off the dirt. You do not want to use liquid cleaner. Simply blow off any dirt, after pulling the filter away from the carburetor, of course. Then place it back in place.

It may be that your chain is real dull. The top edge of the high part of the flat tooth needs to be sharp. And the outside corner needs to come to a nice point. Remember, there is two cutting surfaces on each tooth, the top is cutting down into the wood, and also that outside sharp corner is openning the cut for the bar to pass through. Proper sharpening, if new to it, can be hard to grasp. Any chainsaw manual should show how to do a good job.

I have a Poulan 2750 Farm Hand 2.8 ci saw with 20" bar. Been a great saw but this last winter all the oil leaked out of the oil tank and made a real mess. What does it take to fix that and is it...


Quite honestly the cheap solution to the problem is to either empty the tank before you store it, or put it on top of an oil pan.
If it isn't the cap that's leaking, your looking at a heck of a lot of work. The tank is integrated into the frame. If you want to replace it, you'll be tearing the whole saw apart.

I need a manual for a new Poulan 3.5 electric chainsaw, or, failing that, I need instructions on what kind of oil to use on it, and whether I need separate oil for the chain.


You shouldn't need any other oil than the oil to keep the chain and bar guide oiled (pressing down on the button adds more oil to the chain/bar). You can use standard Bar and Chain Oil, or probably pay a little more and use the Poulan brand oil, but in my experience, any bar oil for chainsaws will work, and the larger the container you buy, the less per ounce you will pay. Remember this is NOT an automatic oiling system, so it will be cheaper in the long run to remember to press that button than to replace the chain/saw if it overheats.

Wild thing saw brand new used once, over heating, not wanting to cut, why?


If there is no oil getting to the chain, you will have metal to metal contact between the chain and the bar with no oil film, the chain will look dry and be covered in baked on resin from the heat, make sure you have adiquate chain oil in the oil chamber, this chamber is seperate to the fuel chamber, it should be filled with a non fling chain oil.

Bar and chain not getting oiled?


Check the oil holes in the bar and the mounting plate to make sure they're not clogged with debris, wood chips, dirt, etc. If the oil ports are clogged, no oil will get through to the bar. If these areas are damaged, you can find a new bar for your saw at Hyperparts.com. Tip: Use the lookup by application (link at the top of the page) with your saw model for an exact fit.

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

Wood shark 2150 not oiling


Your model is a 2150LE. There is a Type 1 and 2. The linked IPL is a 2150LE Gas Saw Type 1. Click the "View the illustrated parts list [Go] button here:
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/2150LE-Gas-Saw-Type-1/75.2150LE-Gas-Saw-Type-1.1.59.1.html
What little detail there is is on the "Handle, Chassis, & Bar" drawing.
A blunted, hooked piece of wire can be used to pull the hose in the oil tank out. I recommend the filter be replaced. Work your way through the linkage cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. The oil pump (52) is often behind the clutch. The saw can be operated without the bar and chain to verify oiler operation. GL

Are you sure you reset the brake?

Remove the starter cover, does it rotate when pulled? If yes reinstall it.
Pull the chain brake fully aft, does the saw rotate? If yes your problem is solved. If no did you put oil in the gas before you put it in the tank? If yes or no elevate this to your friendly neighborhood chainsaw seller/mechanic. HTH
