Are you using bar oil or something lighter? Stop by your local Stihl dealer (leave your saw in the car), give him a latte, and chat. He might have an idea or 2. He will not be chatty on any weekend or if there is a perspective sale in the store, HTH

The rope broke when I tried to start the chainsaw. How do I replace it?


Your rewind spring is now sprung. Remove recoil assy ( the part your rope slides into). Remove all old rope remnants and rewind the spring. Install new rope, tie it off and slowly release spring rewinding the rope.

Stihl fs 86


I am a Stihl mechanic. We tell all our customers that the proper starting procedure for a Stihl is as follows. Turn on the switch. Set the choke lever to full choke. Prime the primer bulb three times(if it has one) and pull the pull rope NO MORE THAN THREE TIMES with the choke on. If the unit has not tried to start after the third pull, open the choke lever and pull till it starts. Sthil carburetors are notorious for flooding after pulling the rope more than three times on choke.

Thanks;

Hi, you cant go wrong their both stihls. The 021 is a more powerful saw and the 017 is lighter, so it all depends on your intended use. Regards Phil.

I am trying to install spring for the pull rope on a 017 stihl chainsaw


If it is new this is much easier. The spring comes in a plastic keeper and only needs to be aligned and pressed into place.
If the spring is loose this is much easier as a dealer, with the correct tools. tighten the spring back into a col and set it in place.
Good luck

Sthil are a roal panin in the *** takes 50 time of pulling the rope to get it started


Read you manual. you will NEVER have to pull anything 50 times to start it... pull off your muffler (if you filled it with gas) and let it dry out.

I just replaced the recoil \\starter rope on my blower


Are you sure you have the right length rope??? If you are sure the rope length is correct you may have wound the recoil spring too tight causing it to run out of travel. You want the recoil spring just tight enough to pull the rope all the way in.

The starter rope doesnt pull, and when the saw is


sounds abit like it ,but remove the spark plug and you should be able to rock the flywheel back and forth. sounds a bit like no oil in the gas or at least insuficient oil and may have grabbed, (i assume you have the chain and bar off the powerhead,if not then remove them ,and then try ) it could also be the centrifgal clutch jammed up.
