The problem with any 2 stroke engine, if left for a period of time without being run and gas left in tank will cause the diaphram to dry up thus causing poor atomization in turn will cause low RPM and very hard to set.
Every time one uses such tools, and know that it will be left for a period of time without being use. One should empty any gas left in tank, then stat the motor and let it turn until all gas in caburator has been used.
I'm pretty sure this is the cause of your problems, had it happen to me before.
Easy fix is to get a new diaphram install in caburator. This should solve your problem.

Check the muffler for plugging. Clean or replace the air cleaner. Check the spark plug condition. Preset both H and L jet screws 1-1/2 turns back from CW stops. The saw will run with these basic settings. Warm the engine up and pull the throttle full on. Adjust H for high speed, but 4-stroking. It should smooth out immediately when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L for smooth idle, but rich enough to allow the engine to follow the throttle. Adjust idle speed screw so that the chain just stops turning. Make sure the chain is being oiled and not too tight.

Saw starts runs good then when i start cutting it

Hi Jason:
Make and model might help but here's two ideas:
1) Remove muffler and clean it. They can get plugged up with carbon and the saw will run at low RPM but will quit because of excess back pressure when you try to rev it up.
2) Set the high and low speed carb settings. Start the saw then gradually increase engine speed until full throttle. Screw the hi-speed needle in slowly. If RPM immediately drops, back it out until Rpm increases, then starts to drop. Screw back in until peak rpm reached, then starts to drop. Back out to peak, then 1/3 turn more.
Set low speed so engine runs smoothly but chain does not turn.
Hope this helps.

My air condition blocks some ice in the system, causing not enough cool provide.

Water leak /Icing in your evaporator is the common problem in split airconditioners.. It happens due to:

1. Air filter block 2. Evaporator coil Block. 3. Less rpm of blower motor. 4.Drain line blocked.

To rectify, service the unit completely. If blower motor less rpm, replacemotor capacitor.

Could well be a fueling issue, best to change the filters and try it again. If it's a TD5, the throttle potentiometer can go faulty and needs checking.
Your suspension issue will probably be a faulty air bag or valve block, and if you don't sort it your compressor will give up also. Check the bags with some soapy liquid and see if there are any bubbles. Typically this comes from the very top. Park on level ground, put the vehicle in extended mode and carefully apply the liquid to see.

Engine cuts out at 8000 rpm in any all gears
