Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
The chain and bar oil should feed from the reservoir to a small hole in the bar that feeds the oil to the bottom of the chain. If that little hole gets dirt in it, the oil won’t feed to the chain. To clear the problem, remove the bar, remove the chain from the bar, and clear the hole in the bar and track for the chain in the bar. I’ve done this while out in the woods by just using a stiff dry piece of grass to push the dirt out. Once clear, replace the chain, teeth facing the correct way, and the replace the bar, and tighten.

The most common reasons why your automatic oiler isn`t working are: Your chainsaw`s oil tank is empty. The chainsaw oiler is clogged. The oil pump is broken.
One tell-tale sign that a chainsaw has flooded is the smell of fresh petrol near the muffler. To ascertain whether this is indeed the problem, simply disassemble the part, pull the starter cord as if you were switching on the engine, then dry it, reassemble it and try switching it on again.
If your STIHL chainsaw is going to have a problem, it`s likely to be with a worn carburetor, bad spark plugs, loose fuel hoses, or clogged fuel lines. You should also inspect the fuel intake system and ensure that there are no compression issues.
If too much oil is being applied to the chain and bar, it could pick up debris more easily, which could make the chainsaw cut less efficiently and also pose a safety risk as the debris is more likely to fly off the chainsaw at any time.
Without lubricant, the speed at which the chain moves over the chainsaw bar can cause some serious friction. A slowed-down chain and excessive fuel burning mean there`s a lot of friction between your bar and chain, which means a lot of heat is being produced that could do major damage to your saw.
