This is a fuel starvation issue, first thing to do is replace the fuel filter in the fuel tank, hook the hose out through the filler hole with a length of bent wire, once out pull the filter off and replace.

Check the compression, these machines work in very harsh conditions, as a compression test you should be getting a good 120 psi.

SOURCE: My Brand new Stihl ts420 cut saw wont run full throtle, smokes white, and leaks fuel out of exhaust filter. it runs like the choke is half on.

This sounds like the carb is flooding, there is a rubber tipped needle under the metering side of the carb, this may be leaking, before replacing the needle make sure the air filter is not blocked, replace with a new filter and try again

SOURCE: stihl ts 400 wont start

If there is good fuel in the tank and the plug gets wet with fuel, and there is a good spark stating the obvious it should go, if not there could be a mechanical issue, piston scored, rings worn etc,

Will only run on full choke


This is a fuel supply issue. Don't use the saw until you find the problem.
Things to check are:
fuel filter, fuel line crack, impulse line, carb needs work, air leak to engine. Etc.

Its ment to.!!! that's the job of a decompression button.

Procedure:
1.push on off switch into full choke position, depress the decompression button.
2.pull the saw over until it 'fires' once.
3. the decompression button would have popped back up, click the on/off switch up to half choke.
4.pull saw over and it should fire up, revving.! blip the throttle to return it to tick over.

I also have a stihl chainsaw model home light 240. I just had it sharpened and a new spark plug put in by the repair guy. I used it for 30 mins and it kept stopping until I couldn't start it again

Place saw on floor (flat clear surface).
Make sure chain break is on.
Hold throttle in, while pushing on switch all the way down.
Place right foot in the flat of the rear handle.
Place left hand on top handle.
Pull starter handle until saw fires, it should then cut out.
Click the starter switch up 1 click to half choke.
Pull starter handle again untilsawfires up. note: it will be reving because the trigger is loched on, (blip the throttle once) and it should go to tick over.

There should be np need to keep playing with the choke when the saw is warm. No need to lock the trigger when starting warm.

Warm starting is performed by holding the rear handle between the thighs rather than on the floor.

Looking for a short curcuit wire


If you are referring to the wire that kills the engine it will be attached to the coil at one end and the on/off/choke lever/switch at the other end. If you need to replace it then contact a Stihl dealer.
