I'm a little confused here. First I see a problem with Homelite 9.0 amp chainsaw, then you ask about an Electromac EM 200. Both of those are electric saws and don't require a "mix". The only thing you have to put into them is bar and chain oil.

I would look at ereplacement parts.com or repair clinic.com
They usually offer exploded views and sell new parts.

For your machine. Depending on age the "clutch" is not engaging on the shaft for some reason. It may be that some screws have come loose or missing. You may need to buy a new recoil mechanism.

Standard plug gap for a chainsaw 0.5mm

Fully close the choke, shut off switch is toggled to "run". Pull start without using the throttle until the engine fires. Set the choke to the second position, pull start again until the engine fires and idles. Allow some time for the engine to warm up while giving light throttle and when the engine responds smoothly, set choke to fully open.

Had same problem with my reconditioned unit. After a few hours engine would run only with 1/2 choke and full throttle. Like most 2 cycle engines, the unit was starving for gas.

Solution: Adjust both carburetor screws. These screws are located directly below the idle adjustment screw. There are 2 of them side-by-side and they are approx. 3/16 diameter with an oval shaped cast metal raised restricter. Simply remove the plastic round air filter by removing the small nut. Then, using a Dremel tool while wearing safety glasses, cut a slot in the face of each screw. Cutting through the raised cast metal surrounding the screws will not damage the unit. Then using a small flat blade screwdriver, screw each screw clockwise till it stops then back-out each screw 2 turns. Factory setting is 1 - 1/2 turn each. However, the unit over time runs too lean with the factory setting.

Then start unit, let warm up with 1/2 choke, then turn to run position and make any final adjustments.

Making this adjustment, I am once agin able to trim my yard in the idle position. Runs Great !!!! Hope this helps.
