Make sure your oil tank is full, then remove and clean your bar using a stiff piece of metal or a feeler gauge and clean groove out where chain runs clean all the way around the bar and then clean out the oil hole in the bar,making sure this is clean, then next check the hole/hose that oil comes out of to see if it is plugged, use paperclip or similar to make sure it is clean,reassemble saw and try again, if it does’nt work make sure you have the chain gaurd part by the bar properly installed so that the oil holes align with each other,try this and if this does’nt help you may be looking at replacing oil pump
How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?
We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :
If you run a chainsaw without bar oil, it`s likely that the chain will heat up and eventually break. This can cause extensive damage to the chainsaw and may even require a new chain and bar. It`s imperative that you use the correct amount of bar oil.
You want lubrication of the actual chain against the bar. You don`t want to chain to burn – which is what might happen if there`s too much friction. Without oil, it causes frictional force on the motor in the chainsaw as well.
Yes, electric chainsaws require oil to lubricate the chain
Although the motor does not require gas or any fuel additive, the chain will require `bar and chain` oil.
The chain saw should be oiled before each cut. Manual Oiling System: Lubricate the saw chain by pressing the bulb on the oil reservoir cap twice before making each cut. Hold the bulb down for 3-4 seconds on each press.
Naturally, the chain of your chainsaw will need to be oiled well to function perfectly. To make sure that it functions well, grab some WD-40 Multi-Use-Product. WD-40 works great for both – rust prevention and lubrication.
When you put the chain back onto your chainsaw, you will have to lubricate it to clean it, using WD-40® Multi-Use Product. Before refitting the chain into the chainsaw, wipe off all the excess residue and then reattach it to the guide bar.
“Any chain will rust if it`s not lubricated, and the seals will become dry and crack, letting that grease escape. And remember, you`re lubricating the sprocket, not just the chain.
To run properly, all chainsaws need two types of oil for different jobs. The first is engine oil. The chainsaw shown here has a two-stroke engine, so it needs two-stroke engine oil mixed with the fuel to help cool and lubricate the moving parts inside the motor.
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.

My 290 isn’t oiling chain. I tried adjusting oil flow and still no oil?
You have to remove the bar and clean it out
On a husqavarna 362 xp special 71cc chainsaw very little oil is coming out to the chain i have removed the chain and bar and cleaned and still very little oil is making it to the chain what should i do ??
Check to see if there is an oil-volume adjustment screw located near the lower part of the chain where it goes into the cover, but mounted in the main case. It might be underneath the case in about the same location. Turn it CCW somewhat, if found, and check for oiling by holding the bar tip running at speed near some cardboard. If properly oiled, it will throw off a thin line of oil after several moments. If there is no adjustment, then you will have to investigate the oil pump, lines, and filter/valve in the oil tank. Make sure to clean the small oil passages in the drive end of the bar. Hope this helps!
What kind of oil in the oil tank and how much for the remington electric pole saw ?
Bar & chain oil is the best. You can use regular or synthetic. Some say you can use atf (auto transmission fluid) or sae30 oil. I use bar & chain oil.
What type of GAS and OIL need for the chain saw?
You will need “Chain and Bar” oil to lube the chain and bar. Special oil made just to lubricate the chain and bar as the chain is running.
For the engine you can use the low grade of gasoline…and 2 cycle oil.
Fuel mix…50 to 1 = 1pint of 2 cycle oil to 6 gallons of gasoline.

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.
Oil is not lubing the chain on bar, what would be causing it?
When using the chainsaw, the chainsaw siezes, and makes the engine run sluggish. The bar and chain we not is not getting oil. The oil reservoir is fulled.
Hope this is not one of those ********, pay us first before we help us website situation.
Sounds like the ports on the bar are possibly clogged with debris or the oil lines going down to the bar are clogged. Check both of them to see if that might be the problem.
My 18 Inch chain saw will not keep oiling the Chain, I had it worked on and He said it was plugged. How do you unplug it with out taking it all apart. Is there a spot to blow air through. the Preacher..
Remove the chain bar and look just below the bolts holding it in place. You’ll see a small hole where the chain bar oil pump pushes out oil. Make sure this hole is clear then run the saw without the bar on.
Be CAREFUL of fingers!
You should see oil coming out of that hole. If not, you may need more serious work done with the saw (chain bar pump replacement).
My husky 455 rancher is not oiling the chain properly. I have tried to clean all the oil ports on the bar and saw but it still is hardly pumping any oil to the chain. What could be the problem? How does the oiling system work?
The problem is very likely to be a clogged but more likely faulty internal oil pump (especially if your chainsaw is old).Hope it helps.
