Check to see if the air filter is clean. If it is, increase the idle speed adjustment screw on the carburetor.

SOURCE: cant find serial number on stihl chain saw ms 290

If the silver rating label is still on the safety brake lever, it should be on there. If not, look at teh housing to the left of the exhaust by the 'teeth' on the body, or on the housing below the exhaust. It is normally stamped into the plastic.

SOURCE: Stihl MS 260 Pro wont run wide open or idle.

Hi brandon First change the sparkplug with the same heat range,Check and clean the gas filter with compressed air.Remove the carb and very carefully disassembly entirely.Check the gaskets and the diafragms.At the fuel pump side there is a fine screen(clean it).Check the needle,the spring and lever.Unlock the screws L and H(note how many turns are they).Put the corp of the carb in a special clean solution for 12 hours and then clean it with compressed air(something is clogged there).Put all back together and try to start the engine. regards savumihai71

I have a Stihl MS 290, runs great, but the chain keeps tightening it's self on it's own


That's an unusual problem, usually the opposite happens. After making sure the chain brake is off, loosen the two nuts that hold the bar. Be sure to hold the bar up when adjusting the tensioner screw and adjust until the chain is just snug, but not too tight. While still holding the bar up, tighten the two nuts firmly. Check to see that the chain can move freely by hand. Then start the saw and run the chain at speed with something in front of the nose to check for adequate lubrication. You should note a slight fine spray of oil on the object in front of the nose of the bar. Inadequate lubrication, a chain that is binding on the bar, or an overly tight chain can cause the bar to heat up and expand, further tightening the chain. A properly adjusted Stihl saw will use almost all of the chain oil in the reservoir for every tank of gas. Too much oil is better than too little. The oil feed may have to be adjusted for operating in temperature extremes. If operating in very hot conditions, be sure that the saw has not run out of chain oil. The oil feeds faster when hot.

Saw will start and run but chain wont turn


Chain brake may still be applied.

The chain brake is the front hand guard, pull it towards you to release the safety brake. Check chain tension, the chain may be too tight.
