H is for the high revs, high throttle

SOURCE: stihl model f545 will start but will not throttle

Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
Chain Saws:
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
Remove Carburetor
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside

Need amanual for a F545 Lumix.

Why do you need two of them ? Stereography ? If you Google the make and model, followed by the word 'Manual' you should get some results. Fixya does not supply manuals.

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.

I have an Stihl FS-86 weedeater/ trimmer and it keeps cutting off when i pull the trigger and when it runs for about an hour and gets hot. What could be the problem with it?

I'm pretty sure that there is a problem with the carb., with it being a FS-86 it should be old enough to still have adjustments on the carb. if so I'd start by turning the low (L) side needle out (counter clockwise) about 1/8 turn and see if that helps. If the carb. has no adjustment or only hi (H) then I would change the metering diaphragm on the metering side of carb.. As far as a timing issue it's not, unless there is a problem with the flywheel. on a 2-cycle string trimmer the timing is set were they have the flywheel keyed to the shaft and is non adjustable.
