 You have it set to lean on the high, may have burned  up the piston. pull the muffler and look for scoring on the piston.   Steve

Ashamed it took me this long to get back on this saw, but today is the day.

The saw has a winter operation mode, but I think it's been removed or is broken.

Can't see a way to remove the muffler to check the piston and cylinder for scoring.

Can you get a peek through the muffler on the front.
