Jets in chainsaw may have build-up. A good build-up remover is called SeaFoam. Add this by direction to the gas. When using the SeaFoam you need to run full throttle with intermittently full choke until motor runs smooth with no choke.

Double check 2-cycle mixture. Too lean mixture in the chainsaw wont stay running.

Ran out of gas put gas in wont start,pulled spark plug and put a little gas in ,it fired but wont stay running,the primmer bulb seems to be not working


Hate to tell you this but if you didn't mix oil with the gas properly (most likely a 40:1 ratio) then the chain saw will seize up and won't work again.

Won't stay running, we changed the spark plug and changed the gas. will run for a few moments, if you turn the choke off or press accelerator it dies


HI,
Use a stiff piece of wire and form a hook on one end and use it to fish the filter that is on the end of a tube in the gas tank.Buy a new one and you should be back in business.Hope this helps and thank you for choosing FixYa.com.

Can not start the ms180 chain saw, tried new plug, new gas, starting fluid etc. suggestions ran this morning, and now will not start. only been used twice


Remove the plug and then plug into plug wire. With the spark plug laying on top of engine pull the recoil a couple times and you should see spark at the plug. If all is good and there is the proper mixture of gas/oil ratio in saw then >>With trigger depressed fully and choke on, pull until it fires and then shove the choke in. /////If no spark and the saw is new, I would return to retailer.

Weak spark hard start stihl 021


Check the pole gap on the ignition module to the flywheel magnets. Use a thin business card for a gauge. If it has the correct gap and you have tried a new spark plug, then the module itself is likely failing. Hope this helps!

Doesn't stay running


start by cleaning the air filter, blow it out realy good, alot of times the carb gets dirty spray some carb cleaner in it just a little at a time, if you haven't changed the plug i would do that too.

I suspect carb. trouble. Is the compression OK? Look at the spark plug after trying to start it. If it is wet, you are getting too much fuel. The white smoke indicates that. You may need to overhaul the carb.
Go on the Stihl site and customer service for information.
