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.

SOURCE: poulan Super 1800 16" chainsaw .

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

SOURCE: chainsaw wont oil the chain and bar it is a poulan 2000 woodsman

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.

Hammy if you scream loud enough Poulan may foot the bill for this.

We are going to replace this page 2; item 70

Poulan “PP4620AVHD” OM

With this; “Handle, Chassis & Bar Assembly” print; item 67; ChainBrake Assembly; $21.83.

  • Item 68; Bar Mounting Nut; $0.56 each (need 2) and
  • “Engine Assembly” print; not illustrated; part number 545006011; Scrench; $9.75.
This is the configuration professionals have used forever. The only thing to remember here is to hold the nose of the bar up when adjusting and tightening the bar nuts.

I can't keep the chain tight on the chainsaw

After adjusting make sure to tighten the bar bolts(nuts). If they're missing, replace them and tighten securely after adjusting the chain tension.

Cannot get chain back on bar of poulan pro electric chainsaw model 1630

Slide the bar on the studs all the way to the left, or rear of the chainsaw, and feed the chain around the motor sprocket, THEN along the top of the bar to the right, and around the bar's sprocket at the right end of the bar, if this doesn't work, report back. This is the original bar and chain correct?

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.

Replacing gas line

Your fuel lines are routed like the schematic below. I suggest you replace the filter, all hoses (2 different sizes), and the purge button (bleeder).

Dissasembly of a poulan 1625 chain saw

I think this IPL (exploded parts list) will provide all the help you need.
1625 Electric Saw Type 2

There is also a Type 1 here:
The dash number of your serial number is the type.

It looks like only 1 screw holds the motor in the case after removing 2 layers to find it.

1 Answer

It starts and runs right for about five minutes, then it won't rev. to the highest rpm's. Will start after that but won't run fast enough to cut.It's a Poulan 3416----16" 34cc

Remove the muffler and clean out deposits from the spark arrestor screen. Make sure the intake air filter is clean. If these two items are good, then the 'H' carburetor adjustment may be too rich--turn clockwise somewhat until the engine runs at full speed, but 4-stroking slightly. The engine should smooth out and 2-stroke with even a light cutting load. Make sure the chain is being properly oiled while running. Hope this helps!
