Check the air cleaner and muffler for plugging. Is the spark at the plug blue and snappy? If weak looking, try a fresh plug gapped to 0.020". No help, check the ignition module gap--turn the flywheel magnets under the module poles (after removing the left side cover), insert a thin business card into the gaps, loosen the module screws and allow the module to contact the magnets. Tighten the screws, then turn the flywheel somewhat to remove the card. Turn the flywheel one full turn to make sure the pole gaps don't close up at any point. Try for spark again, if better, try for start. If still flooding, you may need to service the carburetor--make sure the lower diaphragm is flexible and not cracked or punctured. Don't use the choke for more than one pull. Make sure to use fresh fuel mix and shake the container thoroughly each time just before filling the tank to prevent oil starvation. Hope this helps!

Why does my stihl chainsaw spray gas out muffler and carburator


I had something similar a long time ago with my Stihl chainsaw. I removed the small carbeurator and found that the gas/ carb float was at times sticking in the open position allowing too much gas to flow into the piston cylinder. The spark and compression can theoretically burn so much fuel on each compression stroke of the piston and the residual ie; overflow of gas/oil mixture is forced out the muffler on the exhaust stroke. Keep in mind the engine is a two cycle stroke engine meaning it fires each time the piston compresses and therefore if it is the float sticking open it will seem like a great deal of raw fuel being forced out the muffler. I hope this will give you a starting point to look at. Good luck and hope you don't get discouraged because the Stihl product, especially the chainsaw is one of the finest produced and on the market today.

Can not start the ms180 chain saw, tried new plug, new gas, starting fluid etc. suggestions ran this morning, and now will not start. only been used twice


Remove the plug and then plug into plug wire. With the spark plug laying on top of engine pull the recoil a couple times and you should see spark at the plug. If all is good and there is the proper mixture of gas/oil ratio in saw then >>With trigger depressed fully and choke on, pull until it fires and then shove the choke in. /////If no spark and the saw is new, I would return to retailer.

Won't start


I have the same model chainsaw, and sometimes it's very difficult to start. If you pull the plug and it's wet, with the plug still out pull the starter rope about ten times to clear out the excess gas. Dry the plug and put it back in and try to start it with the choke off. If it fires up, be ready to put the choke on if it starts. I forgot to mention that before starting you should pull in the trigger, push down the button on top of the handle, and hold it down while releasing the trigger. This sets the trigger so that it is on slightly. If it doesn't start, pull in the trigger and give it a few pulls that way. If it doesn't start, pull the plug again and see if it is wet. If it's dry, put the choke on and try to start it. If it still doesn't start, pull the plug, pour a few drops of gas in through the plug hole, replace the plug and try to start it with the choke on. If it still won't start, get a Stihl chainsaw.

I have a stihl chainsaw that won't fire


DID YOU REMOVE THE PLUG AND CHECK THE SPARK AT THE GAP? IF YOU HAVE FIRE THERE THEN THE PROBLEM MUST BE A FUEL PROBLEM. ARE YOU USING A FRESH GAS MIXTURE? YOU CAN PUT A FEW DROPS OF MIXED GAS IN CYLINDER THEN RE-INSTALL PLUG TO SEE IF IT FIRES, IF IT DOES THEN YOUR NOT GETTING GAS FROM THE CARB.POSSIBLE STUCK DIAPHRAGM. GOOD LUCK!!!
