this seems to be a chain brake that's applied , try turning off chain brake by pulling back on hand guard till a click is felt

some folks moving up from an older saw to a more modern saw are not so familiar with chain brakes and don't understand them and how they work

Take your saw or old chain to a shop that works on small motors and they can make one . Take it to lowes and try one of theirs. They have them to fit any brand saw. Sears, Home Depot or a small hardware store.

If it has ball bearings in the rachet mechanism they may be sticking and need cleaning so they move freely.!

I get asked this question a lot , im gonna have to make a video on this subject someday .
but here:
1st ck your oil viscosity/SAE it should be 30 and say bar/chain oil
next dump out entire oil tank and wash out with kerosene (you'd be surprised what I seen come out)
then remove bar and chain , locate oil outlet it's in body of saw near adjustment screw , use a small can of air to blow in this port softly , use a touch more of kero to clean this all out , refill tank with proper oil !!!! and run saw (no need to put bar/chain back on yet ) might take several minutes but oil should start to flow out hole !! stop saw and reinstall bar/chain then run again .. fixed !! if no oil comes out ever your oil pump is gonna need some fixing

for a low cost oil I use filtered used motor oil cut down with a dab of kerosene

Have you checked for spark? Sounds as though your ignition module has quit.
Remove the plug, connect a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins, Switch the ignition on, take it into a dark room and pull the starter. You should see a spark at the tip of the plug. HTH

check to see if the brake is on. the large handle in front. move it. its a safety device that stops the saw if it kicks back on you.
