I'm not very familiar with the 011 but it may have a screw to adjust the oil flow. Look underneath in the area where the oil line goes onto the oil pump housing and there may be a screw with numbers 1,2 and 3 close to it. If so turn the screw to a lower number.
However, I have found the problem also occurs if the chain cover is worn. Take it off and check the area that goes against the chain bar. Put a straight edge against it. If that is not flat then it often leads to the oil flowing from the area and little getting to the chain. The only way of fixing it is to replace the cover.

SOURCE: Chain Saw, Stihl Model 011, cutting off

I've been messin with my poulan 2150 that was doing the same thing. Good, fresh gas, good spark,etc. I noticed whenever I loosened the fuel cap it would literally spray gas out! alas, I removed the muiffler assy and the darn thing fired up the first pull! I've got the muffler parts soaking in gas right now and I'm sure this the problem. It just makes sense especially if you use the same 'mixed fuel' can for weed eater, blower,etc. Check your's out, it could very well be your problem too! GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: want to replace chansprocket,stilh avt 011

Hey mate,

There is two types of sprockets, a spur type and a ring type both are similiar to change.

Spur: remove the side cover & remove the chain and cutter bar then you will see the clutch cover and the sprocket attached, remove the little E clip in the centre and the cover will come out be careful not to loose the little roller bearing, To replace lube the roller bearing DO NOT get oil in the clutch assy otherwise you will have big dramas, and reverse the above steps... be sure to tension the chain correctly if your not sure get somebody that is qualified to check it.

With the ring sprocket it is exactly the same except you do not have to replace the clutch cover the ring just locates on a spline on the clutch cover and reassemble the same as above...

Hope this helps

SOURCE: I need to replace the bar bolt on a stihl 011 at

If the bolt is still viable, you could try using two nuts back to back as a jam nut and wrench it out.
If it is not viable (damaged threads) try vise grips. You MIGHT try a bit of heat from a Bernz torch as last resort, and of course penetrating oil like PB Blaster.

I have a stihl ms 192 tc it runs great while running it freely but when I cut in to a limb it losses an excessive amount of power an sounds like the break is on

Hi Kevin
Assuming it's a 2 stroke with oil in the fuel so the engine is not overheating & seizing? 25:1 Mix
Check the Sprocket bearing on the front of the bar. Is it seizing because of lack of oil or even damaged.
Take the chain off and test.

How do you adjust amount of oil to the bar on stihl 29 chainsaw

The adjust is on the bottom of the saw. Be aware that you may have an oil pump or driver failure.You could also have just a dirty oil pick filter.

How do I adjust the oiler for my Stihl 011 avt?

I can't speak specifically to a Stihl, but I've had Homelite, Poulan, and currently a Remington electric. They've all either put out too much oil or they leak to empty when I'm not using them. The only control I've found is to store them blade up so the oil reservoir is down. That keeps them from leaking but doesn't help controlling the oil output. In all three of the above machines, the oil runs through a little plastic tube from the reservoir to the opening at the chain. There is no gate or valve to control the flow which is gravity fed from the reservoir.

I fixed the problem by letting the reservoir drain dry and never refilled it. I now keep a small pump oil can with my Remington and I put a little squirt on the chain when I start cutting and another squirt after each two or three minutes of operation. It's a bit more trouble but it's a lot more effective and a lot less wasteful and messy.

The is probably the most common complaint I hear from friends with chain saws and it's been going on a long, long time. I can't conceive of why the manufacturers have not resolved this problem. A thumbscrew clamp on the little hose could easily be designed into virtually any chainsaw and should not impact the price at all.

No pilcoming through 009 stihl chainsaw

Check to make sure the pick up line in the tank hasn't come lose. Then check the port under the bar and cover is free and clear of debris. If that's not it you probably need a new pump.

My 024 was never correct right out of the box and did not pump the correct amount of oil to the chain which caused quicker loss of sharpness and excessive heat to the bar. The local repair shop replaced...

Stihl offers a higher capacity oiler for the saws, more than likely it was shipped with the lower capacity. Also dealers will install the same oiler as what was in the saw unless you specifically request differently. Let me know if you need any more help, Daniel.

I have a Stihl 16" 012 AVT chainsaw. I cannot get

First thing I would try is wash out the oil tank with a little bit of diesel fuel then run some thinner oil thru it to see if it gets better . I usually leave bar and chain off when I do this.. or if it is oiling but not going down the bar check the bar oil holes.
