Question about Garden

1 Answer

My Stihl 028WB chainsaw will start and run a little, will cut for a short time but then the chain slows down and no matter if I hold the throttle wide open it will not cut fast and basically won't cut. The chain is turning but not fast enough to cut. I think it is the carburetor but dont know how to clean it or if that is it.

Check the engine running (it should 4-stroke at speed when not cutting, but will immediately 2-stroke when cutting) after removing the bar and chain. If the engine seems ok now, check that oil is oozing out of the engine side port. If ok, clean the oil ports at the drive end of the bar including the two small ports that go out to the chain groove on each side, then clean the entire chain groove. Oil the end sprocket (if it exists) and check it's turning. Reinstall the bar and chain, and adjust the chain until it just stops drooping from the lower bar, but not so tight that it can't be turned by hand. If no oil came out of the engine port in the first test, then troubleshoot the oil pumping system from the oil tank filter to the oil pump itself. The chain should cut at any running speed, just not as fast. Make sure that it is properly sharpened. Clean the air cleaner and the muffler if either is plugged. If you have further problems, suggest taking the machine to a Stihl repair center for carburetor service if needed. Hope this helps!

Instruction on how to start a stihl chainsaw model 014 AV


this is a picture of a 014
looks basic..older model .. no safety features

starting all depends on
carby idle hi /low set correctly
air filter clean
clean fuel....fuel /oil mix
good spark
new spark plug if required
chain oil in oilier section
correct chain tension on the cutting bar

being a two stroke
and the engine has good compression
crank casing seals are in good condition

never have your body in line with the chain
it could run off the bar at startup ..flick .onto your arm or face

choke on
trigger lock on
hold the handle and pull cord handle ..firmly
let the weight of the chainsaw start itself
let the chainsaw go downwards till motor splutters
choke off
trigger lock on
drop the chainsaw downwards a few more times
and it should start

other way is put foot in the foot plate of the handle
and start sequence is the same

if not something is out of adjustment or needs servicing

Stihl ms 290 farmboss. 20" guide bar cutting log 24". as I start a cut throttle wide open it boggs down when I get deeper in the cut. compression check good. changed guide bar, chain, and clutch drum...


Does the saw run freely when not cutting? Dont press too hard, let the saw do the work. Is the cut compressing? Pull the saw out and under cut. Drive a plastic wedge in to the log

I also have a stihl chainsaw model home light 240. I just had it sharpened and a new spark plug put in by the repair guy. I used it for 30 mins and it kept stopping until I couldn't start it again


Starting procedure for Stihl.
(cold starting)

Place saw on floor (flat clear surface).
Make sure chain break is on.
Hold throttle in, while pushing on switch all the way down.
Place right foot in the flat of the rear handle.
Place left hand on top handle.
Pull starter handle until saw fires, it should then cut out.
Click the starter switch up 1 click to half choke.
Pull starter handle again untilsawfires up. note: it will be reving because the trigger is loched on, (blip the throttle once) and it should go to tick over.

There should be np need to keep playing with the choke when the saw is warm. No need to lock the trigger when starting warm.

Warm starting is performed by holding the rear handle between the thighs rather than on the floor.
