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

Fs 85 loses power in the heat


Change all filters--and spark plug. Use a good cleaner in fresh fuel. dump the old first. use premium fuel--it has less ethanol in it

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.

Cutter runs for approx 10- 20 min and cut off and have to cool down before it starts again.


Hi, have you ever cleaned the unit out? If you have air pressure available, this is the easiest way to do it. Blow all the old dead grass, weeds ect out from the engine area of the Weed eater. If you don't have or have access to a compressor, take the unit to your local garage/service station and ask to use their air, or ask them to blow it out for you. This alone may cure the problem. However the proper mix is critical for proper performance also. If the mix is too lean the unit will over heat. Clean it out, and be sure of the mix ratio. You should be 'good to go'. Good Luck Vern

The problems you are having sounds very much like a blocked exhaust port/silencer. On these small two stroke machines it is normally the cause of lack of power or not revving. Happy gardening !!
