If less than 1 year old it is probably still warranted. Determine if warranty is active first. If yes return it to where it was purchased or find an authorized repair facility. A written diagnosis by a good independent saw shop ($10-20) might be a good idea at this point. It is difficult to argue charges with an authorized repair facility without some documentation in your favor.
1. Remove the starter housing. Does the starter operate smoothly? If yes, reinstall the cover and continue with 2, if no repair starter.
2. Is the saw equipped with a decompression valve? Yes continue, no proceed with 3.
a. Leave the ignition off, set the valve and pull the starter.
b. Pull gently to release the valve. Is there a difference in the effort required? If yes continue with 3, if no repair or replace the decompression valve.
3. Was this saw perhaps operated without oil mixed with the fuel?
a. Remove the spark plug wire and plug.
b. Remove the muffler, hold a light at the plug hole and inspect the cylinder through the exhaust port. Is it smooth and shiny or does it appear speckled with dull gray spots or smears?
c. Pull the starter slowly, inspect the piston as it rises and falls. Is it a dull gray without scratches and gouges?
d. Hold the light at the exhaust port and inspect the cylinder, above the exhaust port, through the spark plug hole. Is it shiny and smooth or speckled with gray spots or smears?
Any spots or smears on the cylinder or deep scratches and gouges in the piston indicate the saw was operated in a lean condition. Repair of this on a home owner quality saw often exceeds replacement cost. A repair estimate by the independent saw shop should be considered.
4. The final likely possibility is the saw has jumped timing. This problem or any not discussed is usually beyond the ability of the operator to repair. Please take it to a good local saw seller/mechanic for a written diagnosis before authorizing any repair. HTH
