Check the muffler for loose bolts or blown gasket. If the cylinder head is removable, the head gasket may be leaking every time it fires. Is there a compression release on the cylinder head which could be leaking. Any of these problems should be covered under warranty, but you may need to find a more sympathetic service shop. 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

Throttle down linkage


Open up handle and check for alignment on trigger and parts. You can look at an exploded view to see all the handle and trigger parts.

4. Pull saw over until it fires once.
5. click 'on' switch up one position to 'half choke'

Gas / oil mix for craftsman chainsaw 36cc


Fuel/Oil Mixture
  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL supplier's recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 8oz/2gal - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (Stihl 2.6oz/1gal)
  2. Most gas in the US of A contains ethanol; not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few months. Anything over 6 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH
