SOURCE: broken pull cord

ur going to have to unmount the the motor from the shaft

step 1. Unbolt throttle housing

step 2. now with that out of the way u should see a clamp holding the motor to the shaft, loosen and pull the shaft out, there will be a cable, so make sure u have it lined up so it goes back into place

step 3, look at the back of the motor, u should see screws going into the plastic housing (coming in from back going into plastic)

step 4. once that is off pull the broken part of the cord out

step 5. wind up the starter coil, (it will only wind up one way) its spring loaded so be carful, once it stops back it off 1 full turn

step 6. u will see a hole for the cord in the housing and in the coil, make sure they are lined up

step 7. insert the cord through both holes, tie it as tighttttt as possible, then let the spring do the rest

step 8. put it back together

SOURCE: starts then dies stihl fs45/weedeater

I sounds like it sucked up some debris in the bottom of the fuel tank and obstructed fuel flow somewhere. Start by blowing out the in-tank fuel filter (You will have to fish it out with something), then load the line with carb cleaner (wear safety glasses) put fuel filter back in line and crank it a few times to pull the carb cleaner into the carb. This may dislodge the obstruction. If this doesn't work, you will have to remove and cleant he carburator. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Stihl weedeater starts but won't run at high speed

This sounds like a timing problem.
It is too far retarded, and needs advancing a couple of thou.
There you go:)

SOURCE: no power fs66 stihl weedeater

Hi When you cleaned the muffler out did you also clean the carbon out of the port on the cylinder as this can be blocked as well. Also you will have to retune the carby, There should be 2 screws 1 for low speed marked l on the carby body and 1 marked h for high speed to start with they should be set at 1 & 1/2 turns out from closed the low speed you set at an idle and the high speed you set at full throttle. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: pull rope does not return

Unless the rope has broken, you dont need to replace it. The problem is probably the rewind spring. It is located under the starter pulley (the one the rope is in). The best thing to do is pull the unit apart and see if you can see if maybe there is something holding the rope up. The spring is a little dangerous to replace. If you go for it, be careful....Lee

Check first for pull rope issue by pulling the side cover and inspecting. If not that it may be something more serious like seized piston.

Stihl fs 86


I am a Stihl mechanic. We tell all our customers that the proper starting procedure for a Stihl is as follows. Turn on the switch. Set the choke lever to full choke. Prime the primer bulb three times(if it has one) and pull the pull rope NO MORE THAN THREE TIMES with the choke on. If the unit has not tried to start after the third pull, open the choke lever and pull till it starts. Sthil carburetors are notorious for flooding after pulling the rope more than three times on choke.

Thanks;
George

With the plug removed the starter should pull very easily. When trying start did the cutter head try to spin? If yes clutch springs may need replacement

I just replaced the recoil \\starter rope on my blower


Are you sure you have the right length rope??? If you are sure the rope length is correct you may have wound the recoil spring too tight causing it to run out of travel. You want the recoil spring just tight enough to pull the rope all the way in.

How do I wind a stihl ts400 pull cord


1) remove the recoil housing
**NOTE: normally you DO NOT need to remove the rotor pulley or spring to replace the rope. This is the area that causes so many guys a lot of extra trouble

2) locate the string that is left and the hole it is threaded thru

3) determine how much string has broken off of the rope that came out

Note: if more than 1 inch is left, then the rope needs to be replaced

4) after rope is obtained, make sure both ends are melted to a point for easier threading thru handle and rope rotor

5) install the rope (with the handle installed on one end) thru the recoil housing and towards the rope rotor.

6) with the rotor free of tension, route the rope from the groove toward center and up thru the hole. Tie a knot in the end of the rope, leaving a 3/8" tail free.

7) wind the rotor in the direction of what the rope would pull (this will tighten the spring) until the spring is completely wound. remove 1/2 to 1 revolution, and then allow rope to wind onto the rotor until all rope is wound.

8) Pull the rope several times to position rope properly into rotor.
*note : there should be NO droop in the handle after released
If droop is evident, wind the rotor and rope 1 revolution tighter so there is no droop of handle when released

9) when unit is functioning proplerly, re-install housing onto unit
