Question about Garden
I had the same model and always had a hard time getting it to start after taking it to shop it started three times ok then the hard to start all over again. It now is in the trash as I refuse to put any more money into it. Stihl makes a great chainsaw but I would never buy another trimmer or brushcutter from them again.

Remove the starter & cylinder cover and look for the coil mounted next to the flywheel. Remove the 2 screws holding it to the cylinder and cafefully pull the wires through the clips that hold them to the block. Install the new coil in the reverse order and set the air gap between the flywheel and the coil with a business card. Let the magnets on the flywheel pull the coil towards it with the business card in between. Tighten the screws and spin the flywheel to remove the card. Reassemble the stater and blower housing.

Check your fuel filter in the fuel tank to make sure it is clean if it is then"
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.
