The past two days I have gone into my wood lot to cut some hemlock and after starting the saw and cutting for maybe 10 minutes, I shut it off to clear the brush. When I tried to restart it no go. Took it back to my shop put a new plug on in and it started. Put the old plug in and it also started!! Today I encountered the same scenario except when I got back to the shop I tried to restart it and it fired right up immediately. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated as I am at my wits end.
It sort of seems like vapor lock but it isn’t really working long or hot

In my experience- these do not like hot starting without being put in the high idle mode.
Before starting, pull the choke on and then set it back to off- this sets high idle on the carb and opens the throttle enough for the saw to start- will rev high until you blip the trigger.
