Check to see if the throttle cable is hooked up to the carb. look at the back of the motor and watch as you pull the the throttle to see if the cable is hooked up. if the cable looks to be working correctly then pull the spark plug up and heat it up with a blow torch and put it back in. if the motor runs good then you need a new spark plug. if those two things do not work then you need to replace the carb diapram and gaskets.

Starts ok and runs ok after I have pushed in the choke but cuts out as soon as I touch the throttle. Can you help?


sounds like the ethanol gas messed up your carburetor. Gotta hate this gov't mandate to use this hazardous fuel. 10% ethanol =10% gas mileage reduction.
Stihl wont warranty any of their products that use ethanol gas. They want you to buy this very expensive 'REAL GAS' about $7 a quart

Stihl fs 86


I am a Stihl mechanic. We tell all our customers that the proper starting procedure for a Stihl is as follows. Turn on the switch. Set the choke lever to full choke. Prime the primer bulb three times(if it has one) and pull the pull rope NO MORE THAN THREE TIMES with the choke on. If the unit has not tried to start after the third pull, open the choke lever and pull till it starts. Sthil carburetors are notorious for flooding after pulling the rope more than three times on choke.

Thanks;
George

Km90 starts but won't run on full revs


The KM90 is a 4mix engine that has valves. You may need to check the valve clearance, using the clearance tool.

My fs 45 whipper snipper is starting but running


I have a Stihl FS 45 and have had problems with it running for a short time then cutting out. The problem is like to be either- the filter attached to end end of the fuel pick hose that goes down into the fuel tank is blocked or- there is a crackor split in the corrugated section of the fuel pick up hose between the fuel tank and the carburettor. If such a crack or split exists it will cause air to be sucked in with the fuel upsetting the fuel/air ratio. A new hose not adjustment is the only cure
