Try turning the idle speed screw CW (not the jet screw marked L) one full turn to increase speed. Normally, this is set so that the chain stops moving, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

Wont start with new plug. I can smell gas, but none on plug


Check the start stop switch, sometimes they can get dirty causing the saw not to get spark. Also maybe check Your air cleaner. if it's clogged it may be flooding itself out?
