Assuming you have the right length chain and its not just running out of adjustment, it would then probably be a stripped or snapped chain adjuster. Can be coursed when the bar nuts aren't dun up before starting to cut, the force of the chain saw will snap an adjuster no problems. If its striped it might smear like its adjusting in but when it gets to a point it will just stop

How do you start a STIHL MS460 chainsaw


I am a Stihl mechanic. The proper starting procedure is to set the switch to full choke. Pull the starter rope no more than three times.Now raise the switch up one notch and pull it till it starts. Stihl products will flood if pulled more than three times with the choke on. Thanks, George

044 stihl sawchain wont idle just dies out and sometimes runs at high idle


This sounds like an air leak. Checking all of your hoses and making sure the crankshaft seals are good is where to go after adjusting the carburetor to factory settings.
remove the muffler and make sure the engine does not look like this:
