    That is just what they want you to do is spend money having them fix the saw. BALONY. Take both screws out with a pair of needle nose pliers, Then clean them well. Take a dremal with a cutting wheel and cut a slotted screw driver line straight down the middle. Gently run them back in and run back out to 1 full turn on screwdriver. Adjust from there... I have used this technique for years on weed wackers, saws, and any other 2 cycle motor. Dont pay someone when you can do it. EPA Thing my tail...

Sound like the carb was never adjusted right. Unfortuatley, the carb adjustment screws require a certain tool that's not available to the public. (EPA thing) You'll have to take it to a shop to get it adjusted. That should solve the problem.

What would cause a new chain saw not to cut


New chains stretch considerably and yours may have to be tightened frequently at first. The chain will not cut if there is too much slack.

It is possible the new chain was installed backwards.

Chain saw won't start


Check the fuel filter for plugging (which is common when fuel is left in the machine over winter storage). You should run the carburetor dry after emptying the fuel tank for storage.Hope this helps!

Carb needs teardown and cleaning. May be a stuck float or clogged jet.

My chain saw (14 inch gas powered) would not


Modern chainsaws have the ability to run without turning the chain via the chain-brake. To set the brake the uppermost handle is pushed forward (toward the chain) and a firm snap should be heard and felt. To release the brake you pull the same handle back (towards the engine) and get the same "snap".
Concerning oil leakage: Bar/chain lube collects on the inside of the clutch cover and the sawdust mixes with it as you saw. A surprising amount of oil gets absorbed in the sawdust and later seeps back out when the saw is at rest. If the level of oil in the tank noticably drops after sitting overnight you may have a leak...otherwise it's normal.
As for a running chain that wont cut, it is common for chains to be installed backward and the unit still function perfectly (it just won't cut wood). See the proper chain orientation here. In this photo the chain travel is from left to right.
