STIHL WEED TRIMMER

I have a Stihl fs-46 weed trimmer that I can't start. When I pull rope it's so hard to pull. When I removed plug the starter rope moved easier. When I checked starter by removing from motor there wasn't any problem pulling it all the way out. Csn you help with my problem please? Thank You

With the plug removed the starter should pull very easily. When trying start did the cutter head try to spin? If yes clutch springs may need replacement

SOURCE: Fix Coil Start Stihl Weed Trimmer

you dont say what model Stihl, lets assume its FS80/85. the torxs style screw driver is part of the tool kit supplied with the machine and includes spark plug spanner 3/4 AF, remove the four screws to release the starter assembly, the starter also retains the fuel tank, dont lose the oblong rubber insert or the tank will wobble around when assembled. if the rope wont return the end of the rewind spring may have broken off or it maybe that the spring has got so rusty its just hanging up. with the recoil off remove the centre screw (normal anti-clockwise) holding the starter away from your eyes, withdraw the pulley and inspect the spring for damage which normaly occurs at the end that engages with the pulley, if it's broken and you cant get a replacement use a pair of pliers to grip the spring about 3/4 inch from broken end, heat with blowtorch to soften and rebend into a hook to engage with the pulley, dont try to bend without softening, clean off any rust with wire wool and re-install the spring in it's housing working from the outside toward the middle.it's more of a knack than anything else and you could probably do with eleven fingers. having installed the spring make sure the rope is fully un-wound and insert the pulley into the housing turning gently until you feel the spring engage, you will know you've got it right when the pulley attempts to rewind, fit the pulley retaining screw, you will observe a notch in the outer rim of the pulley,make sure that the rope is in the notch and use it (the rope) to wind the spring about five times, check that the whole rope rewinds into the pulley, if you still have some hanging out put more turns on the spring but dont over do it. to check, gently pull on the grip until you come to the end of the rope, thats the important bit, you must come to the end of the rope before you come to the end of the spring otherwise the spring will break again.install the starter assembly by offering up and slowly pulling on the grip until you feel the pulley engage with the starter pawl. good luck.

Check the fuel filter, you are not getting fuel so therefore the spark is not getting anything. You can also take some carb cleaner and clean your carb. This is a common carb issue and it needs either a new filter(recommend) and also some carb cleaner shot through the system

Could be several things including a broken return spring. If you are not experienced with these springs please take it to a reputable shop to avoid any personal injury.

My stihl weed eater fs85 hard to start when hot


Try loosening the gas cap to relieve any pressure, then tightening it back up. Usually you will just need to barely unscrew it and then screw it back even before you pull the rope.
