SOURCE: it acts like it is flooded, starts with choke off and throttle depressed. runs until carb runs out of gas then dies

Yes, Your carburetor sounds like it needs cleaned. Or you may possibly need to purchase a carb. kit for your trimmer if the cleaning doesn't do any good. When cleaning the carb. use a Den Tek Brush, (teeth cleaning brush), to clean the small ports. Also, check the small screen in carb. Can get clogged easily.

SOURCE: stihl line trimmer starts but won't stay running

check to make sure your kill switch is not shorting and you have the right gap from the coil to the flywheel also if the flywheel sheer pin is damaged in the least this will cause a multitude of problems... it is the timing pin and must be in good shape not damaged or sheered ..any way reply to mrdmburns@cableone.net and i will try to help you through this.... DALE good luck and will wait for reply..

Carb settings for Stihl FS160


Here's a link to your owner's manual,look at page 26 for carburetor adjustments,I have 3 stihl's,a blower,weedeater and chain saw,had them a long time,never had to adjust the carb.What problems are you having?Clean your air filter or replace it if's real dirty and can't get clean,use 50;1 regular unleaded gas and oil mixture,put a new plug in it,same as you were using,Autozone has them cheaper than the Stihl dealer.Are you using your choke and throttle correctly when starting?On mine,I set the throttle,lock it in,put choke on close,pull a few times,no more than 5,then open choke and pull,it should start,is your spark plug getting oil-gas on it,if so then your flooding it at start up,use fresh gas mixture.I wouldn't adjust the carb. https://www.stihlusa.com/WebContent/CMSFileLibrary/instructionmanuals/FS160_180_Manual.pdf

Will only run on full choke


This is a fuel supply issue. Don't use the saw until you find the problem.
Things to check are:
fuel filter, fuel line crack, impulse line, carb needs work, air leak to engine. Etc.

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

I replaced a coil on a stihl weedeater, fs 55 rc, and am having a problem with flooding. also I need the gap spec for the coil/mag


put a piece of paper between coil and magneto magnets, then tighten down. Just so it is not scraping or hitting when you pull it past the magnets . The flooding is because your possibly leaving the choke on to long . Only pull it a couple times, when choke is on. Then turn to half choke.

Is it the carbeurator if the chainsaw is flooding?


`It could well be the carb flooding, however if you have been cranking the engine for a time without it starting it will keep drawing fuel into the cylinder, you need to remove the spark plug, switch the on/off switch to off, make sure the choke is off, crank the engine until no more fuel comes from the open plug hole, now leave with the plug out to allow it to dry out, refit the plug and try to start with no choke and wide open throttle.

How to start the stihl f580


If you ment: FS80, the proper way to start ALL Stihl products is as follows.

Set Ignition switch to: -
Set to full choke
press primer bulb if equipped
pull rope 3 times, if it fires up, remove choke and pull till it starts
if it does not fire by the third pull, turn off the choke and pull till it starts.
If you pull more than three times while the choke is on it will flood the engine. Good Luck.

Stihl ms-250 won,t start , and gas leaking from under the exhaust manifold , also plug seems not to be spaking even when dry . every time i try to start engine it floods . ?? the saw is only 3 mths old ....


You may need a carb rebuild kit. they are thin rubber diaphrams and will harden up and warp if not used regularly or if the fuel is improperly mixed.
These are easy to flood if you pull them too many times on choke. Pull it on HALF choke until it pops. then turn the choke off, into the run (I) position and pull it until it starts.
If it's flooded, remove teh plug under the cover, blow off the sparking end and pull the engine a few times without the plug. this will empy the cylinder. WATCH YOUR EYES!

To start: turn the choke off, hold the throttle wide open and crank. You have a carb problem but this should get you going. John
