Poulan Pro 295 won't start

I have a Poulan Pro295 chainsaw that I had just got out of the shop for a tune up. It ran fine for a while the stalled out while I was using it. Now it will not start again.

Carb is rebuilt and has been double checked.
New gas lines.
It has a new plug and spark.
Compression is also good.

It just makes no sense to me. No matter how many times I pull the cord not even a cough.

Try putting a little fuel directly in the spark plug hole and try to start it, if it fires your fuel lines are not installed properly, fuel goes from the tank, through the carb and back to the tank. Have a good one. Geo

Try this.....Take the plug out, and dry it off. Blow the cylinder out with compressed air. Then....after putting plug back in....switch on, no choke....throttle held wide open...Should start, and smoke like the dickens....
Run it wide open till the smoke clears
