Question about Stihl Garden
May be that the Gas tank vent is clogged. If you shut the saw off, crack the gas fill cap and start it again, will it run strong again?

Carbs gummed up. Need a serious cleaning or a full ruubers replacement/rebuild kit. Gas turns to gummy when left stting in the fuel bowls.
Use a couple of cans of Sea Foam.. best stuff in the world.

Hi..my name is Keith...it sounds like the reeds in your carb needs replacing...usually if you use a carberator cleaner on them..it will ruin them..plus age will make them stiff..they should be as soft a rose petal..and its cheap and inexpensive to replace..but you have to pay attention to how many layers and the shape of the reeds that come out..because the kit that you buy will fix several different carbs..i hope this has helped..if not..write back

sounds like you have a plugged vent either in the gas cap or the vent valve of which you speak. Without the vent working properly, the engine running and drawing gas from the fuel tank causes a vaccum inside the tank making it harder for the fuel to draw to the carburator. this would cause the symptoms that you are talking about.
Replace the gas cap if it is vented or check to see if the vent valve you mention is working properly.

check your muffler screen for being plugged, this will cause it to not accelerate
