If it has been setting very long with gas it probably has the carb clogged. first try to clean or replace the fuel line pick up filter in the tank.

My stihl fs400 strimmer starts first time and runs on full throttle then dies a few moments later starts first time and does ame thing again


inside the muffler there is a screen that gets all gummed up, take muffler assy. apart and clean screen, if you have a propane torch, this works well as you burn crud off it becomes ash and wipes or blows off. first link shows how.

THE FS 46C WEEDEATER WILL IDLE JUST FINE, BUT WILL NOT REV UP WHEN PULLING ON THE TRIGGER. THE THROTTLE CABLE IS NOT DISCONNECTED AND THE CARB IS CLEAN. ANY SUGGESTIONS?


easy... if the carb adjustments are still factory set the you just need to replace the muffler screen or also called a spark arrester.it covers the muffler exit....

Husqvarna weed eater starts , but blows alot of smoke & then stalls out


Rod, Carb. may need adjusted, try loosening gas cap and start to see if cap vent plugged, there is a in tank fuel filter that you could fish out and remove to see if it is plugged. If still not running remove muffler and clean spark arrester screen, if screen plugged the trimmer will do this.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

When i give my stihl weedeater (fs 55) gas it dies. i changed the gaskets in the carburetor, new spark plug, new air filter. it idles fine just when i give it throttle it dies


This could be from a bad fuel filter (has a dark appearance when dry), from the spark arrestor screen in the muffler being plugged up with carbon deposits (take out the spark arrestor screen and clean it by burning off the carbon deposits), or the carburetor needs to be adjusted. If the carburetor needs to be adjusted I would take it to the nearest Stihl dealer that has a Gold Certified Technician. That way the unit is adjusted properly and is in good running condition. You can find a local dealer with the dealer locator. The link is HERE.

Weedeater very hard starting or not starting at all


One of two solutions. But the only thing wrong is the carburetor. It needs cleaned or it needs a new carb. kit. If you need tips on how to clean, just let me know.

Stihl weed eater runs 2min. then stop


Stihl weedeater was running and stopped suddenly. Put in a new fuel filter and cleaner air filter with soap and water. Checked spark plug and it appeared fine. Started the weedeater, ran for a second or so and stopped. Spark plug wasn't gas fouled. Could it be the carburetor needing new diaphram gasket and spring.

Stihl FS85 Weedeater


I suspect carb. trouble. Is the compression OK? Look at the spark plug after trying to start it. If it is wet, you are getting too much fuel. The white smoke indicates that. You may need to overhaul the carb.
Go on the Stihl site and customer service for information.
