Question about Poulan Garden
Pull the safety back to engage the drive clutch
with electric chainsaws, pushing the lever forward disengages the 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.

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.

It's probably the oiler check valve located on the crankcase just in front of the clutch. You will probably need to remove the clutch and sprocket to get at it.
