Homelite UT10560 Chainsaw oiler problem

The saw puts out no oil. So, of course, the chain gets hot. The manual is no help - it tells me to take it to a certified repair person ... .The saw has fewer than 30 hours on it and has two other major problems already. I have read other similar posts but no advice. Any suggestions - besides "Dont buy Homelite"

Here's a diagram showing the oil pump and line. Make sure the line is clear and the pump is turning.

There are some Homelite chainsaw oilers that work off Crankcase Pressure. There is a a special fitting on the crankcase that is also attached to the oil reservoir and is pressurized. If the crankcase is losing pressure then the oiler will not work and more than likely the engine will need to be rebuilt.

This is not one of them.
