Carb is most likely clogged from when the gas you had in it before gummed up. Take some carb cleaner and clean the heck out of the carb and everything will work just fine after that. I also recommend letting the carb cleaner sit for about 30 minutes before trying to start the machine

    Check the spark and make sure that the you are getting good spark in the light of day you should be able to see if spark. If the spark is weak then the spark resisstor is bad and needs too be replaced

Check for a plugged fuel filter and defective fuel lines. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. Check for spark at the plug--it should be blue and snappy with a new plug. If ok, squirt in some fuel mix in the plug hole, replace the plug, and see if it will pop a couple of times. If ok, make sure the primer bulb draws fuel into it after several pumps. If still won't run, remove the lower chamber of the carburetor and check the diaphragm for flexibility and no holes. Hope this helps!

Does the spark plug get wet with fuel when pulled through? If dry, try spraying a little starting fluid in the plug hole and reinstall the plug. If it pops at least once, you have fuel delivery problems--look for hardened/ cracked fuel lines. Clean the muffler arrestor screen. When the muffler is off, check the condition of the piston skirt and cylinder wall for deep scoring or obvious wear. Make sure the primer button (if equipped) is filling with fuel when pumped a few times. If it doesn't, make sure the bulb is not hard or cracked and check the lines going to and from it. Check the carburetor bolts and nuts for tightness. The fuel filter in the tank could be plugged, fish it out and check. If you have checked all these items, it may be time to clean and rekit the carburetor. Hope this helps!

I suspect the carburetor is full of remnants of the same fluids you found in the tank. If it was my saw I'd take it to the local Stihl dealer for an estimate to repair. I'd expect to pay $40 - 80 for a tune up and repair depending on how many fuel hoses must be replaced. HTH

Lawn Tractor won't start after wrong fuel used, drained, etc


Check the fuel shutoff solenoid (on the bottom of the carburetor -- has a wrie plugged onto it) -- it may be sticking.

Spray carburetor with carb cleaner. Then if you can get it to run long enough to do any good, put carb cleaner in the fuel -- follow mixing proportions on the label.

If this doesn't work, need to take carb apart and thoroughly clean it.

Carburetor overflowing


Gas line from primer bulb to carb may be cracked or broken. Check gas lines for damage. If not that then there maybe an overflow problem in side the carb caused by the float shut off not seating correct or worn "o" ring etc.
