SOURCE: Why won't my Stihl TS350 Cutoff saw go to full

I would inspect the intake side of the piston behind the carburetor. The most common problem with cutoff saws with no water kit is fuel reversion. that is wear on the intake side of the piston that has removed over 10% of the machining marks like this:

If you do have wear like this consult a Stihl Gold certified dealer like www.arcolawn.com for parts and tools to repair it.
Good Luck

Stihl ts500i stalls during accelraiting.


Take back to dealer. This is a fuel injected engine.. not worth the headache sorting it yourself. It could be a problem with the electronic fuel injection. Maybe as simple as a laptop reset of the programming

Ts410 stihl saw stopped working


Starting procedure for Stihl.
(cold starting)

Place cutoff saw on floor (flat clear surface).
Hold throttle in, while pushing on switch all the way down.
Hold cutoff saw firmly.
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 until cutoff saw fires 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..

Hi, My Stihl TS400 with 14"


Racing on a 2 cycle engine is usually a sign of a lean condition. It could be caused by a few different things including a bad crank seal or a torn intake manifold as some are made out of rubber. I would remove the cutter arm then pull the muffler to inspect the cylinder and piston. If they are scored it will be a costly repair.

Wiring diagram for a stihl saw ST400


There is no diagram. it is a simple system the coil for the plug has a kill wire that runs up to the thumb switch.
page 31 of the service manual shows the connectors.
Make sure the wires are not rubbed through.

Need to know belt size fo the stihl ts400 concrete cutoff saw


You should go to a Stihl dealer and ask for the belt for a TS 400 Cut Off Saw. The belt is ribbed, you should only put on a Stihl part to replace the belt and make sure the belt is under the correct tension. When you go to the Stihl dealer you can ask them to show you how to make sure the belt is under the correct amount of tension.
