1. The kickback brake, if equipped, was triggered to stop the chain.
2. The chain is jammed with saw dust/debris (it doesn't take much)
3. the bar sprocket is damaged.
4. The chain guide teeth are damaged and not sliding through the bar guide groove smoothly
5. The chain is adjusted too tightly.
6. You are out of bar oil and friction has stopped it/damaged the bar and/or chain
7. The motor sprocket clutch is damaged.

That should cover all of the basics to look over.

    If you can turn the clutch by hand with the bar and chain off then your problem is in the bar and chain.

How do i unlock brake on a Poulan wildthing 2375 chainsaw


First, stop your engine. Check to make sure that the chain brake isn't engaged. The chain brake can activate automatically by a sudden movement or impact. You can disengage the chain brake by pulling the chain brake hand guard back against the front handle and releasing slowly. If the chain brake is disengaged and the chain does not turn; turn off the saw, then check the drive links on the chain, the bar groove and the sprocket nose on the bar. A burr on the drive links will bind the chain in the bar. If the bar has been pinched, the chain will not pass freely through the groove. If a sliver of wood has gotten into the sprocket nose, it will not turn at all. Also, look at the drive sprocket on the saw itself to see if it has a groove worn into it. A drive sprocket with a groove worn into it will damage the chain.

In front of the handle on top of the saw is a hand guard. If in the course of cutting wood you hit it or pushed it forward, it will lock up the chain drive system. It should pull back towards the handle until it again clicks to release the chain. It's designed to lock up the chain drive and stop the chain when the saw kicks back.

Efco chainsaw starts ok, but chain does not rotate, think safety handle maybe be activated, how do you reset.


Just pull back on the brake handle (safety handle) to release it. It should have a 'toggle' effect where the handle changes position suddenly. If this doesn't help, you may have to remove the bar and chain to clean the brake and other parts of sawdust accumulation. Good luck!

Chain saw chain stopped moving


Was it running and shut down and was froze or when you went to restart it was frozen? Two things I have seen cause this other than a seized engine. One - chain bound up. Remove side cover and inspect chain mechanism. Two- the pull cord is bound up. Remove the pull cord cover and inspect.

Chain brake is jammed, chain will not move when cranked


Take the side cover off of the clutch area and watch while you try to move the brake. Something may be broken or out of place. If the brake band which is fitted around the clutch drum is damaged, it may be causing non-release.

I have a Poulan 20" chain saw that keeps leaking out the bar oil every time I put it in the container and store it. What causes this and can it be fixed by myself?


Most chainsaws have an adjustment for bar oiling and its quite normal for a chainsaw that is stored for long periods of time (weeks or even days) to leak out the bar oil. This is normal for chainsaws stored for several weeks or more.

Some of it may be reduced by adjusting the rate of flow for the bar oiler, read your manual carefully before attempting to adjust it. Adjust to too slow a flow rate will have adverse effects on performance and can lead to premature chain or bar failure.

Recommend that if you are going to store your chainsaw for more than a couple of weeks, drain the bar oil back out if it into a container (strain it through a paper towel before returning to your bar oil can). Also, you really should drain almost all the fuel and then run it until it shuts off if you are storing it for a month or more.

I am having a problem with the chain on my poulan chainsaw. the chain comes loose or comes off after just a few cuts. am i missing something or could it be a malfunction


It sounds like the chain is not being set quite tight enough. Turn the tightening screw until the chain barely lifts above the bar when pulling on the middle of the chain.
