I must assume you have already disassembled the carburetor and cleaned it and installed a carburetor repair kit. If you have not then it will likely be necessary before adjusting the high speed, low speed needle valves and the idle speed screw. Generally speaking you will need to close both high and low speed needle valves by turning them both clockwise until you feel them bottoming out after cleaning and installing a carburetor repair kit. _NOTE: Do not apply a lot of torque when they bottom out or you could cause damage to the needle valves or seat. From the closed position start by opening/turning the needle valve counterclockwise (CCW) 1 and 1/4 turns open. Turning the needle valve in the counterclockwise (CCW) direction richens the fuel mixture and CW will make it leaner. Once it starts and warms up you will likely need to fine tune it by holding the throttle wide open and adjust the (H) high speed needle valve/jet until the engine it runs smooth.
If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired by a Sears technician. Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations: Sears Home Services .

Most likely the reason for the failure to start when hot is worn piston rings. Do you have small amounts of oil coming out the exhaust? That's a good sign of worn rings. If qualified, replace your rings and bore out your piston sleeve. You'll be running like new and no more having to wait until it cools to finish the job.

How do you adjust the carborator on a 2.5 stihl chainsaw?

Most Stihl carburetors built after 2000 have limiter caps that prevent much adjusting. the standard for adjustable carburetors is 1 turn out on both high and low then set rpm of idle and high end to specs.

If you need to adjust the engine to get it running there is a problem somewhere else in the systems.
see a dealer like for help.

good luck
