Poulan wild thing chain saw. Wont idel

I have 2 wild thing chain saws from a box store and they both are doing the same thing will not idel. They start right up you can rev them up some and when they come back down to idel the just flat die. I have tried turning the idel screw i have adjusted the carbs to were every thing seems great rev it up and it dies. Both saws are brand new any thoughts? Thanks

You may be able to fix them, but if they're new take them back to the store.

Try setting the carb like described in this post. It's down towards the end.
