Sounds to me like the bar is not fully tightened and the adjustment screw is either loosening or tightening from vibration.

Have you taken the bar off and run the saw to check and see if the oiler is pumping oil. If not the chain is getting hot and seizing on the bar. If it is pumping oil clean out the groove on the bar to make sure the oil is getting to the bar.

With the saw off pull the chain around. It should move smoothly and easily for it's full length. If the chain got kinked or the groove in the bar got nicked or bent it can cause binding. When the metal gets hot and expands it could cause it to bind worse.

Yes, I agree too... that was my first thought! Is the Primer/Oil Pump working?

Sometimes they get "clogged"... remove and clean all gunk off!

If you are using a roller nose bar, check the nose sprocket for clogged sawdust.

From a quick search, it looks like your pump should be replaced by any of these numbers
530029834 , 530029835 , 530014410 and/or 545036801.
