The fuel could be stale. I would empty the fuel tank and put fresh fuel in it. Make sure the unit is in the ON position. On the handle there is a switch. ( I is ignition (to start) and O is off (to kill the unit)). Then pump the primer bulb a few times to make sure there is no air in the fuel lines. Then move the choke lever up into the choke position. Pull the starter cord no more than about five times, it should try to start. Then move the choke lever down, into the off choke position. You should pull the cord a couple of more times and it should start right up. If you have put the choke lever in the on position and pulled it a few times it could be flooded. To clear out the cylinder and get the unit running at this point. Turn the choke to the off position and pull the unit a few times. Depending on how flooded the unit is it could take quite a few pulls.

Where do I find a free repair manual for Stihl FS 46


If you have a nice Stihl dealer he (or she) might be nice enought to print you the specific repair information that you may need but no place that I know of offers the complete manual for free.

Stihl fs 45 ignition problem no spark


Disconnect the small spade terminal wires from the coil itself and test for spark. If you do not have spark replace coil. If you do have spark check those small wires for insulation damage and grounding. If wires are OK check kill switch.
NOTE: DO NOT START MACHINE with small wires unplugged! Only test for spark.

My fs 45 whipper snipper is starting but running


I have a Stihl FS 45 and have had problems with it running for a short time then cutting out. The problem is like to be either- the filter attached to end end of the fuel pick hose that goes down into the fuel tank is blocked or- there is a crackor split in the corrugated section of the fuel pick up hose between the fuel tank and the carburettor. If such a crack or split exists it will cause air to be sucked in with the fuel upsetting the fuel/air ratio. A new hose not adjustment is the only cure

GE Over-The-Range JVM1653BD Error code -FS-


"F5: Shorted humidity sensor, will occur if humidity sensor is detected as being shorted continuously over 5 seconds."

It may be excessive moisture on the sensor, or it may short from time to time internally, then "unshort" when it cools or dries.

Until it fails consistently, I probably wouldn't worry about it.

If and when you or someone you know want to check and/or replace it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Transmission


Automatic transmissions can last a very long time, if properly cared for, and not overworked/overheated. Proper fluid/filter changes are needed!

If you are unsure, you should take the car to a mechanic, and have them inspect the transmission. If the seller rejects this idea, then I would hesitate the purchase of this vehicle.
