This is a fuel supply issue. Don't use the saw until you find the problem.
Things to check are:
fuel filter, fuel line crack, impulse line, carb needs work, air leak to engine. Etc.

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: stihl ms170 keep running in off position

Remove the cover and on the multifunction switch there is a wire with a metal connector on it in the multifuntion switch that when in the off possition needs to make contact with the metal contact that is mounted to the houseing and extends to right above the multifuntion switch usually they get stuck under the switch instead of on top of it.

SOURCE: My Brand new Stihl ts420 cut saw wont run full throtle, smokes white, and leaks fuel out of exhaust filter. it runs like the choke is half on.

This sounds like the carb is flooding, there is a rubber tipped needle under the metering side of the carb, this may be leaking, before replacing the needle make sure the air filter is not blocked, replace with a new filter and try again

My stihl concrete saw will not tick over when i knock the choke off


This is a fuel starvation issue, first thing to do is replace the fuel filter in the fuel tank, hook the hose out through the filler hole with a length of bent wire, once out pull the filter off and replace.

Stihl trimmer must use choke for full throttle


Sounds like a tuning issue and carb problem. Before you go spending money on carbs or carb kits and start stripping down the carb, try this first.
*Unscew both H and L tuning screws ( not all the way out but back them off)
*Pull over until the engine fires up, it should run for a second and cut out.
*Screw both the H & L all the way back in.
*Then reset the carb to standard settings.
*Unscrew the H tuning screw 3/4 of a full turn.
*Unscrew the L tuning screw 1 full turn.

This should be the standard settings.

Start saw as normal and see if its any better. Failing that your probably looking at cleaning the carb or replacing diaphrams.

Choke trigger on the handle will not lock to start the chainsaw


more information please..

To lock the choke on:-
1. depress dead mans trigget on top of back handle
2. squeeze throttle trigger fully in.
3. slide on switch fully down to 'full choke' position. 'it should stay there'.
4. Pull saw over until it fires once.
5. click 'on' switch up one position to 'half choke'
6. pull saw over again, saw should start running and be revving high.
7. 'blip' throttle, saw should stop revving and run on tick over.
