As a general rule...there are 2 setting labeled "L" and one labeled "H"...first off, you want to turn the "L" screw clockwise in all the way just until it stops(be gentle, as this is a needle valve and you can damage the needle if you use too much force). Next, you turn the screw counterclockwise out 1 1/2 turns as a starting point....start the engine and adjust the "L" screw just until it starts to sputter and then back off the screw until you get a smooth, you want to give the saw full should have a smooth transition to high speed...if not then you will need to adjust the "H" screw in and out until you obtain a good slow to fast may have to do this several times in order to obtain the best results

Stihl MS180 chain saw wont start

How long since it was last used? Could be stale fuel. Flush tank, fill with fresh fuel and try again. May take a good dozen pulls to clear the fuel line. If not that then check spark by removing plug, connect to lead and hold electrode end to cycl head while pulling it over(might need a second pair of hands, don't do it if theirs fuel every where!) either that or it's flooded. Turn choke off, hold throttle wide open and pull it until it starts.
