If you have spark and fuel then id be looking at lack of compression.. damaged piston ring or damaged crank seal/gasket

Plug could be fouled. Make sure you have fresh fuel mix.

I have an old 028 stihl av super electrical quickstop have rebuilt the carb on it put new gas new spark plug is turning over but not starting please help Dan from NY


due to age , id start by seeing if it has any spark in plug , remove plug wire and insert 1/4 bolt , arrange near by a metal bolt or other item (not handle ) and do not hold bolt near item
turn ign switch on (don't bother with choke) and pull engine over several times , observe 1/4 bolt for blue sparks (dim lights if necessary )
no spark present , trouble shoot ign system farther
spark present - remove and clean plug with good solvent
add a little bit of engine start fluid to plug hole and reinstall plug and wire , attempt to start engine , nothing - compession problem or shorted plug if it sputters but doesn't start then its a carb problem , troubleshoot carb (clean it )

Stihl 011 av wont start


Flooded? Try a new plug, or get that one cleaned up. If it is sparking and wet, it should fire, even if it doesn't run, it should spark. Did you put the jets or the needle valves back to where they were? I think they start out at 1 1/4 turns out , then adjust the low and high. If it is fouling out with too much gas, the low speed jet is open too far.

Stihl blower - full throttle it stalls out. low speed ok. have replaced fuel line, spark plug.


Your carburetor needs cleaned or you need a carb. kit depending on how old the carb. parts are. If you need tips on carb. cleaning, feel free to ask.

Stihl FS 110 brush cutter loop trimmer ''weed eater'' won't start. I've changed gas and spark plugs and it still won't start. Tool is 5 years old. Help! D.W. from NC


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

Stihl weed eater runs 2min. then stop


Stihl weedeater was running and stopped suddenly. Put in a new fuel filter and cleaner air filter with soap and water. Checked spark plug and it appeared fine. Started the weedeater, ran for a second or so and stopped. Spark plug wasn't gas fouled. Could it be the carburetor needing new diaphram gasket and spring.

I suspect carb. trouble. Is the compression OK? Look at the spark plug after trying to start it. If it is wet, you are getting too much fuel. The white smoke indicates that. You may need to overhaul the carb.
Go on the Stihl site and customer service for information.
