    Brand new rebuilt chain saw. This is the second I have had with the same problem. The first was a year ago with a new, unused, chain saw. Bogs down and cuts out under a load. Should I be able to adjust the high side to get it to take a load?

    Has the saw been in storage for several weeks or more?

Stihl ms 290 farmboss. 20" guide bar cutting log 24". as I start a cut throttle wide open it boggs down when I get deeper in the cut. compression check good. changed guide bar, chain, and clutch drum...


Does the saw run freely when not cutting? Dont press too hard, let the saw do the work. Is the cut compressing? Pull the saw out and under cut. Drive a plastic wedge in to the log

My 2012 exc500 cuts out with throttle wide open and FI light flickers on.


The F1 light is an engine management error, take it to your nearest dealer and get them to run their diagnosis machine on it. You may have a mixture problem or an ignition timing problem.

How do I adjust the carburator?


There are two needle screws that can be adjusted to make the engine run properly. Be certain that the carburetor is clean and the diaphragm is in good condition, and the fuel is new. The two needle screws mentioned above should initially be adjusted at one turn open from turned in all the way (lightly seated). Each of these needle screws performs different functions. One is for idle and throttle response (this screw is marked "L" and the other screw is marked "H". L and H are marked on the carburetor body and also on the plastic "shroud" near the adjustment screws. These screws are not interchangeable, being foolproof since the thread sizes are not the same. When properly adjusted the low speed screw (L) allows the engine to idle properly and throttle response will work properly. When the high speed screw is adjusted properly the engine will have correct power at full speed. Adjust the low speed screw so that the engine idles and when you squeeze throttle all the way to wide open the engine should not hesitate and should come up to full speed and when you drop the throttle it should idle nicely without stalling. Now adjust the high speed screw. Hold throttle wide open, holding it there while you adjust the high speed screw. If this scares you (be carefully so that the spinning chain does not cut you!) you may adjust the high speed screw at idle, turning it just slightly in or out. The high speed screw should be adjusted so that the engine does not run clean at wide open throttle but sputters slightly, slightly adjusted open from running clean to slightly sputtering. When under load (cutting a log) the engine should run clean. Good luck!

I replaced fuel line from carb to intake and now it wont start?


Check the carb fuel stub to see if its seated in the hose. Chech to see if you re-installed the piston underside scavenge hose to the bottom stub of the carb. Check your compression. New is 160 psi, operational but problematic (hard start) 130~140 and completely toast at 90. This saw is easy to flood when compression has fallen off. Cold start, 3 pulls choke on with the throttle trigger locked wide open. At first sputter, put choke in normal run and it should fire by the 3rd pull. If not its flooded. Then remove the plug and with an air hose vacate the cylinder of fuel for a few minutes and try again without the choke or throttle lock set at wide open.

Good luck.

The saw seems to be getting too much gas. with the filters off i can blow air in the carb and it does fine. i cleaned the needle valve and it does the same.


The carburetor could be set too rich for the unit to run properly. If you take it to a Stihl dealer they can tune the saw to the correct rpm. You can try to tune it to a "leaner" position. Look at the carburetor while it is on the unit and at Wide Open Throttle turn the H screw clockwise maybe half a turn and see if it will run at a higher rpm.
Alternatively you could re set the high side (Wide Open Throttle) by turning the screw until it seats (please turn the screw lightly as you could damage the seat) and turn it one full turn out. This is the factory setting and the unit should run O.K. at that position. If it still does not run correctly then there could be other issues with the carburetor that is making it not run very well.

My weedeater starts but doesnt seem to be getting enough fuel


Hi,
You can't clean the filter. You can however order a new filter with the filter attached from www.ryobi.com.
When you say it's not getting enough gas is the weedeater shutting off on you? If so your carb may need to be clean. If that's the case then report back and I can tell you how to do that.
Good luck!
