Either you have the wrong blade/chain or there is something wrong in the adjustment mechanism. Since it is new take it back where you bought it and ask one of their shop folks to take a look at it.

Mcculloch MS 1415 electric chain saw throws chains

I had a saw that did that and found my blade the chain runs in was bent. Another problem was the groove the chain goes in had a gouge that did not look like much but was just enough to throw the chain. Also check the drive sprocket and make sure it lines up with the groove in the blade the chain runs in.I replaced the blade and its ok now.

I have a new 455 rancher chainsaw husky 20inch bar chain keeps coming off new chain

You may have a bent bar, or you could be putting the chain on a little too loose. Perhaps the chain is not getting lube ?
Possible that the chain tentssioner and or adjustment is loosening up as you are using the unit. Other than that maybe a defective new blade ?

How to tension the chain on a mcculloch 2618cav chainsaw?

Slacken off the two 13mm nuts on the cover, leave them finger tight, clean away the saw dust from the front of the saw to expose the adjuster screw, this is in the front of the cover, it will reqiure a flat blade screw driver, screw in clockwise to tighten the chain, when adjusted correctly it should fit snuggley all the way around the bar, with a gloved hand pull the chain around the bar manualy, it should pull freely with very little resistence.

Chain comes off mcculloch electramac em250 chain saw

Adjust the chain until you can pull on it and it will come away from the bar but will not hang from the bar. If that does not solve your problem then the chain or drive gear is worn out. If the oiler is not working it is for sure worn out.

My 32000 mac ,IT WILL START BUT THEN IT BOGS OUT.It was sitting for I cleaned it up the plug,chain,new gas lines new primer bulb and then it ran long enough for me to cut down agood sized...

It sounds as though it might be a little lean, Turn the "H" screw CCw a little. This is the best advice I have ever found for carb adjustment:
Carburetor Adjustment by
CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw.
Clean the air filter; adjusting with a dirty filter can cause a run lean condition once cleaned and the saw run.

There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full – may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too.

If you need them a good starting point for "H" and "L" is 1.5 CCW from lightly seated. HTH
I think too many 000s in your model
I think your model is actually 11-600032-Something.

I have a McCulloch 3516 chainsaw and need advice on how to adjust the carburator. It starts but runs for a short time and dies.

You say runs a short time, seconds or minutes ? Seconds could be carb setting, minutes could be fuel mix ratio. let me know.

a fix that sometimes works is to add kerosene to oil tank where the oil would go normally and rev saw several times with out load holding blade in down position over a piece of dry card board so you can see the oil spraying on the piece of cardboard careful of moving chain
