This sounds like a timing problem.
It is too far retarded, and needs advancing a couple of thou.
There you go:)

    Late entry:
    OLD FUEL. Today's modern lead free Methanol fuel "SUCKS"
    Besides the reduced fuel mileage (6 out of 7 vehicles in the family) It also decays rapidly destroying the carburetors of small engines.
    If your gas is more then a few weeks old during the summer months, it's probably shot. Empty your tank and carefully mix new fuel. Try starting and running your wacker again. You have nothing to loose. Worse case you have 2 gallons of fuel so you can do the neighbors yard too.
    I thought all the new Stile engines had electronic ignitions anyway. There are no timing adjustments. If new fuel doesn't help it may be time to learn how to replace the carb gaskets. The fuel pump is part of the gasket and the NEW MODERN SUPER FUEL causes them to get hard and they don't pump. If you aren't into working on engines , take it to your local Stile repairman (NOT the local back garage fix all guy). He might be able to do it but the Stihl guy knows how to do it correctly. I do my own but I know my Stihl guy very well. )Woods Cold Storage, Woolwine, VA (I hope the plug is ok with FixYA I am not related to or work for any one in the small engine industry. This is a plug for a small county guy that does excellent work.)

Stihl saw runs but won't idle.


The paper pumps get stiff and do not pump fuel very well. It's the new Ethanol gas that is the Carb Killers. You need a rebuild kit not just disassemble and clean.
You have IDLE ADJUST Low Speed adjust and High speed adjust. Low and High speed adjust have nothing to do with Idle.

Stihl FS200 repair manual


I just saw this deal on the Fs200 Stihl Brushcutter. Equipped with a Zama c1qs51 carb. Junk the carb. Go to a stihl dealer and buy a three screw chainsaw type carb with a high low and idle screw. The c1qs51 is junk.The three school carb will put an end to your worries. Of course change your fuel filter naturally. I guarantee this will fix the thing. I own an Fs200 and Fs250.

How to adjust the carburtor high and low on my weedeater head cutter?


Hi jamesbj44...
Before you remove or try to adjust your low and high speed jets you should always count the number of turns to lightly bottom the adjusting screws.
Be sure to write the number of turns down on a piece of paper so you will know when you go to replace them.
Normally you adjust your idle jet to 1/2-3/4 turn open from the bottom seated position to start with...you re-adjust when the engine is warm turning the screw in or out till the engine runs smoothly.
The high speed jet is normally adjusted to 1 1/2- 1 3/4 open from the bottom seated positon, then re-adjusted to run smoothly when running at high speed by turning the screw in or out.

No power fs66 stihl weedeater


Hi When you cleaned the muffler out did you also clean the carbon out of the port on the cylinder as this can be blocked as well. Also you will have to retune the carby, There should be 2 screws 1 for low speed marked l on the carby body and 1 marked h for high speed to start with they should be set at 1 & 1/2 turns out from closed the low speed you set at an idle and the high speed you set at full throttle. Hope this helps.

Stihl leaf blower motor dies when i try to give it full throttle


If the low and high speed screw are adjustable give them a try. Start with one turn on the low and two turns on the high speed. If these screws are fixed then you will probably have to put a carburetor kit in the carb. I hope this has been of some help. Donnyb60
