If your electric or gas saw`s chain won`t turn around the bar, chances are that the chain brake is stuck. On some saws, resetting the chain brake is as simple as pushing in on the side cover of the saw`s body with one hand, and pushing the chain brake forward while grabbing the top handle with the other.
If your chainsaw still starts and then stops working, check the air filter. Clean or replace the air filter if it is dirty or damaged. Another reason that your chainsaw starts and then stops working could be that the spark arrestor is dirty or clogged. If this is the case, clean it with a wire brush.
When you want to turn the engine off, the ignition switch is set to off, or a kill switch is depressed. This creates a circuit from the ignition coil straight to engine ground. Now, the circuit is grounded, and the spark plug no longer fires. This will cause your chainsaw to shut off.
Be aware of the effects of gravity on the wood you are cutting. Gravity will cause a log to bend when it`s cut, resulting in compression and tension. Compression can lead to binding of the saw and tension can cause the wood to spring out when released.

16″ Electric Chain Saw: what kind of oil is used for electric chain saw…
I assume you are asking about the oil for the chain. Any good quality “Bar and Chain Oil” will do fine. Do not use motor oil you use in your car engine as it will not properly lube the chain and will result in quicker dulling and early demise of the chain.
You can get the “Bar and Chain Oil” at most hardware stores or Farm Supply stores.

I was using the saw as a chain saw last weekend to cut up an old tree stump when the chain came off. I don’t know how to access it to put it back on and don’t have a user manual. The saw belonged to my late father and I don’t know if he even kept the manual.
You will have to remove the cover on the side the chain bar goes into. There should be one or two nuts holding the cover on the side. The is also a chain tension adjuster you may have to loosen to put it back on. Make note of the direction of the teeth on the chain. It is an directional chain. The tension adjuster is usually a flat head screw on the front side right beside the chain bar.Unless it is a really old saw, manuals are available from most manufacturers for free download. See if you can locate a brand name and model number.
