Stihl FS 45 throttle problem

I have borrowed a Stihl FS 45 from a friend. It was difficult to start so I set all the carb dials in accordance with the manual. When adjusting the head starts spinning so I then turned it back a couple of turns as per the manual. It starts fine but when I press the throttle nothing happens. Is there any way that the throttle can be adjusted or is this broken. Literally nothing happens in terms of revs when I press the throttle up and down. As the head rotates when I adjust the carb I am guessing there is nothing wrong with the shaft.

    Thanks for the quick response!
    No it does feel like it is not connected to anything. Is the cable a self-fix or back to a maintenance shop?

    can you see the throttle lever on the carb moving when you work the throttle lever if not its the cable.

FS 45 no power problem. Unscrew the exhaust tube and pull it it. Clean the screen with a stiff wire brush.

I have a Stihl Weed eater will a FS 45 carburetor fit on an FS 90


NO. The FS90 is a 4mix engine and the carb has a (sump) on it which has a pulse pipe going to the bottom of the crank. The FS45 is a totally different carb configuration, and doesn't have the sump. FS90 carb is an C1Q-131A

The FS45 has several carbs that fit:-
C1Q-S97
C1Q-S71
C1Q-S66
C1Q-S58
C1Q-S44A
C1Q-S53A

Stihl FS85 starts fine, But not take full throttle


Pumping the primer bubble while the engine is running should cause the engine to over fuel and stall (if the tuning is correct). Sounds like its not fueling enough, pumping the primer is forcing fuel through the carb causing the engine to pick up rev's, but this is soon exhausted which is why it wont rev on the throttle.
* Check that the fuel line is not damaged and drawing in air. (if this is intact try the next step)
* Strip and clean the carb. Replace any diaphrams if needed.
* Check gaskets seal between carb, air filter and cylinder.

Just out of curiosity what standard carb settings did you use.?

If you have a nice Stihl dealer he (or she) might be nice enought to print you the specific repair information that you may need but no place that I know of offers the complete manual for free.

The problems you are having sounds very much like a blocked exhaust port/silencer. On these small two stroke machines it is normally the cause of lack of power or not revving. Happy gardening !!
