Chainsaw wont fire

Is the spark plug wet (inside after trying to start it)? If dry, the carburetor isn't delivering fuel into the engine. Check the muffler to see if it is plugged. Is the carburetor firmly attached to the engine? Fuel and spark at the right time makes it go! Try squirting a little fuel into the carburetor throat. Might be loose screws on carburetor assembly.
