Depending on the saw, the chain brake could be on or the bar could be dry of oil. Either can stop the chain.

Another possibility would be the centrifugal clutch is burned out. That would be the least likely.

pinched bar, brake, broken clutch shoes, broken rim type sprocket. remove the side cover and inspect. see if the chain will move on the unmounted bar.
