Question about Remington Electric Chain Saw

1 Answer

Engine starts and runs a few seconds and quits

I have a stihl o44 that was running fine when I started it yesterday for the first time this year. I ran it for a couple minutes. went to the woods today to get firewood and it started and quit. would start when choked but when choke was opened it would rev up and quit. It did this about 5 times. I checked the plug, and the fuel filter is clear. It did the same thing with filter removed. Any ideas? Thanks, Dave

It sounds like your carburetor needs cleaned. If you started it for the first time without emptying the old gas, you may have had dirt particle's that had settled at the bottom of the tank. This would explain why it had ran the day before. If you need further assistance on how to clean the carb., just let me know.

Stihl 024 AV won't start. Replaced carb, plug, air filter, fuel line. Ran fine for 10 min then quit.

Fuel mixed properly and fresh?
if you put a few drops of fuel directly into carb, does it run for a few seconds?
have you checked the piston for scoring? (By removing muffler)

I have a stihl fs 85r,it starts and runs fine for a few mins. then quits.i lets it sit for a half hr or so then it starts right up but quits the same way again?

possible vapour lock in the fuel tank. pop the fuel cap when it stalls, its probably under vaccum, check tank vent.

Starting procedure for stihl 012 av

Full choke, stop switch on run. Pull rope handle 3-4 times or more until it "tries to start" (it will not start, but it will try to for a split second) move the choke lever to the half-choke position and without pulling the throttle, poll the rope handle until the engine fires and runs for 4-5 seconds then fully open the choke to the run position, let it warm up for 25-30 seconds (don't forget to let it cool down about 45-60 seconds before you turn it off!) and then proceed to use it.

What would cause it to run fine yesterday, start up this morning, then just quit? it will start, run a few seconds, and quit. the fuel pump is working.

This issue could be related to many factors. Fuel pressure, no spark are possible causes, just to neame a few. Verify these two important things and comment back.

Saw starts, runs fine for short time( 2 min) then quits like runs out of gas. I blew out all lines and filter,didn't help.

Your jets are out of whack on your carb I think. Try bringing it to someone who knows how to adjust them.

My 1993 blazer was running fine today, all of a sudden it quit running, it appears that the fuel is getting shut off, I sprayed some ether in the intake, it starts right up , some times it stays running...

this sounds like a bad fuel tank fuse or that the over heating saftey switch is bad it is best to find a plce that will look it over and then tell you what it is and then if you canfix it on your own or buy the parts and then they fix it keep safe

My stihl chainsaw has been running great in the past years

try this. all stihl machines have a fuel filter on the end of the fuel line inside the tank. if you get a hooked peice of wire you can hook it out through the petrol filler cap. these are very fine and may not looked blocked. you can remove the filter element from its holder to clean it. you can also try the saw without the filter for a short time to see if this is the problem.
