Check your carburetor. You probably have a bad one and will need to replace it.

SOURCE: cant find serial number on stihl chain saw ms 290

If the silver rating label is still on the safety brake lever, it should be on there. If not, look at teh housing to the left of the exhaust by the 'teeth' on the body, or on the housing below the exhaust. It is normally stamped into the plastic.

Make sure you are using fresh fuel mix (50:1 ratio). Don't use boat motor oil in a saw--only modern synthetics made for saws. Always premix the oil and fuel thoroughly before adding to the saw. Check the fuel filter for plugging and the condition of all fuel lines, plus the primer bulb condition. Check all carburetor fasteners for tightness. Make sure the air filter and muffler are not plugged. If still no help, you may need to service the carburetor. For an excellent article on Walbro carburetors, go to: http://www.drystacked.com Pay particular attention to the placement of the lower diaphragm and the cover gasket--interchanging positions of them cause many headaches. Adjustment of the two jet screws require a special 'D' screwdriver which may necessitate a trip to a servicing dealer for adjustment. Hope this helps!
