Definitely check compression they require around 110 to 120 to run good

Due to age , id start by seeing if it has any spark in plug , remove plug wire and insert 1/4 bolt , arrange near by a metal bolt or other item (not handle ) and do not hold bolt near item
turn ign switch on (don't bother with choke) and pull engine over several times , observe 1/4 bolt for blue sparks (dim lights if necessary )
no spark present , trouble shoot ign system farther
spark present - remove and clean plug with good solvent
add a little bit of engine start fluid to plug hole and reinstall plug and wire , attempt to start engine , nothing - compession problem or shorted plug if it sputters but doesn't start then its a carb problem , troubleshoot carb (clean it )

    I checked for spark and was good there also tried a little starting fluid to see if that would help and nothing it burped but wouldn't start still

    time to retire it then but caution never never use starting fluid on a 2 cycle washes the oil off and will wear cylinders out real fast

I have a Stihl 028 Av super chainsaw it has been runing well but now I can't start it how do I check the spark on the ingnition


Just remove the spark plug, connect the wire, and lay the plug base on engine metal. Turn on the ignition and pull the starter. If nothing, first try a fresh plug gapped at 0.020". If still nothing, service on the ignition system is required. Suggest finding a Stihl service dealer if you don't have mechanical service skills. Hope this helps!

Stihl 011 av wont start


Flooded? Try a new plug, or get that one cleaned up. If it is sparking and wet, it should fire, even if it doesn't run, it should spark. Did you put the jets or the needle valves back to where they were? I think they start out at 1 1/4 turns out , then adjust the low and high. If it is fouling out with too much gas, the low speed jet is open too far.
