Spray a little starter fluid down the carburator . It is starts then is is a fuel problem. Most likely a gummed up carburator. Remove and clean .

SOURCE: chainsaw running problem

The saw is not getting enough fuel. It should take about 7 pulls to hit(on choke) and then another 2 too start(on run).Check the fuel line and filter first,a fuel line leak is the most likely culprit, very common. Change the air filter, it's cheap and will eliminate any air related problems that may be contributing factors, and it probably needs to be done anyway. If this does'n't fix'ya we will continue on.

Please rate!

I'm assuming the carb is not adjustable, if it is we can solve this in about 30 seconds-

SOURCE: removing handlebar on stihl ms 270 chainsaw

you have to take the top cover off of the engine and then remove the tab that holds the bushing in place alongside the engine. if you just start prying on the plastic plug from the outside of the handle you will damage the retainer. that holds it in place. If you have already done this, there is a solution.

SOURCE: tunning specification for a stihl 028 chainsaw?

I'm not sure there are any "endorsed" tuning specs from Stihl as weather, temperature, fuel quality etc all contribute to engine performance.
Pictures of all types are all over the web.

As for the carb tuning procedure, maybe I can help?

Start with fresh fuel, all filters clean, and bar and chain installed. Also, fill the chain oil tank with bar/chain oil and VERIFY that the chain oiler works properly.
Initial fuel mixture settings (the H and L screws) should be 1.5 - 2 complete revolutions counter clockwise from lightly seated. Sight the carb's throttle plate and adjust idle screw counter clockwise until the plate stops moving.(Throttle closed completely.) Then go back clockwise 3 complete revolutions. This will produce an acceptable startup condition on a HEALTHY saw.
Clamp the bar in a STURDY bench vise and roll the chain with the shank of a screwdriver to verify it is clear. BE SAFE!
Choke the saw and pull the starter rope until the engine "burps".
NOTE: If no burp after 6 pulls, stop! Something is wrong.
After the burp, set choke to half and pull starter until it runs. The settings I gave should produce a slightly rich condition and a slightly high idle. (Chain will be in motion!)

Blip the throttle trigger and idle it down just enough to keep it running during the tune procedure.
Step 1) Using the "L" screw (closest to the engine), turn it clockwise until the engine smooths out or possibly increases RPM. Back it out slightly until the engine has a slight "LOPE" sound to it. (Like a drag car on nitro).
Step 2) Accelerate the engine to full throttle and go to the "H" screw (closest to the air filter) and slowly turn it clockwise and note the RPM increase. There will come a point when the saw will "Top-Out" and loose power. Not even enough power to turn an maintain empty chain's RPM! Go back counter clockwise to the edge of that point, and counter clockwise another fourth (1/4) revolution.
Step 3) Idle the saw back down. Again go to the "L" screw and repeat Step 1.
Step 4) Repeat Step 2.
Step 5) Idle the saw down until the chain stops moving completely. NOTE: Don't settle for a "crawling chain" condition. If the steps above are performed well and all else is healthy, you should be able to idle the engine down to a ridiculously low RPM and it will not shut off.

Hope this helps,
Dolf-

I have a stihl 029 chainsaw and the oil is coming out next to the muffler and not on the blade


If the clutch drum was not set on the oil gear spring properly the housing can wear out and leak oil. I recommend removing the clutch and inspect the housing.
See a local dealer like www.arcolawn.com for parts.

Good luck

Stihl 029 super oiler is not working


Pull off the clip and sprocket, then check the spring or wire behind the clutch. There is a notch in the sprocket hub that drives the spring when the hub is spinning. Sometimes the spring comes off the worm gear that it drives. If the spring is not there you need to remove the clutch to check it. It has left handed threads on it)
