Determine whether or not the engine is locked up by removing the plastic outer shell including the pull cable. The cable reel once dis-engaged from the crankshaft should freely pull out and retract on its own. If the cable reel is still hard to pull, you can replace the reel. Otherwise the engine is binding probably cheaper to replace the whole unit than attempting repair.

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
