I understand your ambitious nature wanting to fix it yourself but it will be easier for a professional to do it than tearing your hair out. There are too many pieces and parts that need to be put in the right way. You will save a whole lot headache from having someone else do this for you.

Starts ok and runs ok after I have pushed in the choke but cuts out as soon as I touch the throttle. Can you help?


sounds like the ethanol gas messed up your carburetor. Gotta hate this gov't mandate to use this hazardous fuel. 10% ethanol =10% gas mileage reduction.
Stihl wont warranty any of their products that use ethanol gas. They want you to buy this very expensive 'REAL GAS' about $7 a quart

Fs 85 loses power in the heat


Change all filters--and spark plug. Use a good cleaner in fresh fuel. dump the old first. use premium fuel--it has less ethanol in it

Fuel in exhaust


Hello,
You will find the needle-valve inside the the Carburetor reservoir bowl. Just be sure that the bowl is free of any dirt before putting it back together.
Good Luck

My Stihl FS85 runs good for about 20 seconds and then shuts completely off. I have replaced the Plug, cleaned out the fuel system and it still does the same thing. Could it be the coil?


Sounds like the main jet or the diaphrams in the carburetor are deteriorated. Remove carb and soak in a good carburetor dip style cleaner and rebuild with a new kit. Also replace the fuel line and filter and use a fresh gas mix.

Instruction on how to rebuild Stihl FS85 carburetor


The FS 85 was produced in HUGE quantities over a number of years. Several different carbs were used during production and Stihl has several proprietary carbs in use. You will need a Rebuild Kit (NOT just a Diaphragm Kit) for this particular carb. On the carb body you should see a Series and a Model identification.
Example: If this is a ZAMA carburetor, the C1U-S66 might have been used on your trimmer.
Get that info off the carb body and ...
For ZAMA carb lookups click HERE.
For WALBRO carbs click HERE.

Hope this helps.

It should start to run again. This means that the gas cap is clogged up with dirt. It is not vented properly, causing the carburetor to not get gas.
