Question about Stihl Garden
Two cycles are little harder to troubleshoot for non start conditions,

If it was stored with gas in the tank for longer than a month or two, the gas could be stale... If so, dump it all out and pour in fresh mix and give it a try...several times, not just once. If that's not the case, pull the plug after trying to start it and see if it is wet with gas. If so, gas is passing the carb and into the cylinder. Next hold the plug threads against the block of the saw and pull the starter rope (with it in the 'on' position). If it sparks, it should be a bright blue not weak....Replace the plug and try it again. If no spark, make sure the switch isn't grounded killing the magneto (coil) output. If not grounded, consider changing the coil as it is possibly defective. Ask for the correct feeler guage for the coil replacement as there is a definite clearance that must be maintained. If you have a feeler guage set, just ask for the clearance setting.
