I have a MAC 3200 saw. Reading online not too many people like them. Mine has been great. It runs when my Echo won't.

It stopped oiling the chain last week. I took it apart and found the tube from the oil tank to pump split. Replaced that and still no oil on the chain.

Does it need to be primed somehow? I'd hate to throw it away as its been a great saw and has sentimental value( was my dads).

Are you using BIO bar oil?

If you've made certain that there are no obstructions, then check the oil pump.

Most common problem is sawdust in the oil passage slot in the bar.
