I also have a BlueMax 45cc chainsaw that I could not start right out of the box. I got lucky a couple of times after many (20 or 30 pulls) but normally I just gave up. Many others online seem to be having this problem with this chainsaw.
It turns out the solution for me was that the starting instructions in the manual are not really complete, there is another step that aids in starting: it needs some throttle. The chainsaw does not like to start with power at idle. After setting the switch to on and setting the choke, as the manual says, before attempting to start, squeeze the throttle while pressing the side button to lock it. For me, this allowed it to FINALLY start with only a few pulls. I learned this when I ran across this video: How to start BlueMax Chainsaw 45CC
I'm a little confused here. First I see a problem with Homelite 9.0 amp chainsaw, then you ask about an Electromac EM 200. Both of those are electric saws and don't require a "mix". The only thing you have to put into them is bar and chain oil.
Electronic ignition units work off speed of rotation so make sure yoy are cranking the engine fast enough, make sure the plug is well earthed against the cylinder whilst cranking, make sure the switch is in the on position, if there is still no spark you will have to replace the unit.
