Question about Stihl Garden

1 Answer

Stihl 024 AV won't start. Replaced carb, plug, air filter, fuel line. Ran fine for 10 min then quit.

Could cylinder not be cycling low enough to allow gas/air mixture into cylinder? Plug is dry after many cranks.

Fuel mixed properly and fresh?
if you put a few drops of fuel directly into carb, does it run for a few seconds?
have you checked the piston for scoring? (By removing muffler)

Stihl ts400 quick cut won't draw fuel. New carb installed same problem exists. I am now getting beyond frustrated. It will start and run for a moment on carb cleaner but when its out of carb cleaner i


Check the boot between the carb and the cylinder, it could be an air leak. also check the compression. If the piston rings are damaged then it wont have the compression to pull the fuel through. Could also be a damaged fuel line, or plugged filter.

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.?

2000 model 500 suzuki quadmaster backfires, wont rev up.


unusual, would normally say air filter but thats new. theres no restriction on fuel is there from fuel tap. so it runs out and slowly fills, time you check its got fuel again. is there a breather into tank blockedi has it once on a bike that used exhaust paste. the person had put too much in and it blocked the exhaust.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

You are going to have to rebuild your carb and get a

GASKET & DIAPHRAGM KIT
  • TILLOTSON DG-2HL/DG-5HL
  • Fits all HL model carburetors
One of your many diaphragms or gaskets is leaking even though it is clean all it takes is a pin hole to cause havoc!

US source for the same kit:

Make sure to download this 8 page manual to help you with the carb repairs:
http://www.tillotson.ie/docs/techinfo_HL_US.pdf

Just make sure you have good fuel flow to the carb fuel inlet from the gas tank with a good rate of flow.
When you finish it will work great if you did it properly. You will for sure have to adjust the fuel mixture screws after the re-build.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Motor runs for 5-10 min. then starts missing and quits.


Check your spark first,if you do not have spark your problem is the coils-if you do have spark the problem probaly lies withone of your valves getting stuck after getting hot and soonas it cools down a little it closes and then you can restart it till it gets hot again.Hope this helps

Stihl weed eater runs 2min. then stop


Stihl weedeater was running and stopped suddenly. Put in a new fuel filter and cleaner air filter with soap and water. Checked spark plug and it appeared fine. Started the weedeater, ran for a second or so and stopped. Spark plug wasn't gas fouled. Could it be the carburetor needing new diaphram gasket and spring.

STIHL TS 400 won't start


I just repaired one with a similar problem--not getting enough gas. Two things corrected it and both were carb related. First I replaced a rather stiff diaphragm with a new one and second I reset the intake valve to allow more fuel into the carb. That solved it. Good luck.

The gas filter is weighted and should remain at the low point in the tank so it is an issue only when you are about to run out of gas--unless gas has been sitting in the tank for a long time. That can leave a film on the filter that can restrict fuel flow. Pull the fuel filter from the tank and scrap lightly on the filter. You will immediately note if there is a film on it. If so, replace the fuel filter.
