Craftsman 18" Chainsaw

I have a Craftsman 18" chainsaw that I have been using for about 6 months and the chain/bar oiler is not working. I have completely cleaned it up and made sure something wasn't plugging it up. How exactly does the oiler push the oil out. How can I fix this problem.

To get at the oiler assembly, you have to remove the clutch cover, bar & chain and clutch assembly. Behind the clutch assembly will be a chrome plate that needs to be removed and behind this will be the oiler assembly. This is a very common problem area on Craftsman (which is made by Poulan, by the way). Using your model number, go to and input this number, find the oiler assembly, order such and replace when you have in your hands. Take care and good luck.
