This could be caused by one or more of several things, but it sounds like worn main bearings beginning to seize. Worn bearings generate more heat which causes the metal bearings and their races to 'swell," thus getting tighter and generating more heat until the drag of the bearing friction is greater than the power of the motor. Eventually you can't restart it until the engine has fully cooled down.

SOURCE: stihl strimmer engine runs but wont cut grass

First take the head off and look for grass, weeds and string wound up in there. A lot of times that's the problem.

Next, with the head off and the switch in the off position, pull it over a few times and see if the shaft spins. If not, could be a broken shaft or a bad clutch.

Stihl ts400 quick cut won't draw fuel. New carb installed same problem exists. I am now getting beyond frustrated. It will start and run for a moment on carb cleaner but when its out of carb cleaner i


Check the boot between the carb and the cylinder, it could be an air leak. also check the compression. If the piston rings are damaged then it wont have the compression to pull the fuel through. Could also be a damaged fuel line, or plugged filter.

Rebuilt a Stihl TS400 concrete saw, and now it wont cut, the engine dies down and has no power but revs up? Ive tried everything!


All these people are missing a basic thing: check the compression. If you did all thus work yourself, you may have reused the head gasket or not installed the new one correctly. It will run with no load, but once force in exerted, the pressure finds the leak and exploits it. There is a reason 2-cycle engines run at 130-160 psi normally.

Ts400 runs a while the cuts out when cutting. hard to start afterwards then repeats the problem. recently serviced and checked


Does it run normally until it has warmed up? Check for a spark immediately after it cuts out. This fault can be caused when the coil has deteriorated and heat from the engine causes the coil to fail.

With the TS400, the other major common failure is the main bearings leading to crankcase seal failure which will cause the machine to run lean and cut out. This can easily be check for by taking the pull cord and side covers off and checking for play by trying to move the flywheel/clutch up and down. If there is any up and down movement relative to the casing the bearings have gone.

Wiring diagram for a stihl saw ST400


There is no diagram. it is a simple system the coil for the plug has a kill wire that runs up to the thumb switch.
page 31 of the service manual shows the connectors.
Make sure the wires are not rubbed through.

I am a Gold certified Tech for Stihl. Feel free to ask any other questions you might have.

Need to know belt size fo the stihl ts400 concrete cutoff saw


You should go to a Stihl dealer and ask for the belt for a TS 400 Cut Off Saw. The belt is ribbed, you should only put on a Stihl part to replace the belt and make sure the belt is under the correct tension. When you go to the Stihl dealer you can ask them to show you how to make sure the belt is under the correct amount of tension.

Stihl ts400 will not stop, it carries on running. Where can I get hold of a service/repair manual


Stihl guards their service manuals making them only available to dealers who service Stihl.the kill switch is not making contact. a t25 torx should get you to the point where you can determine if my theory is correct.
