Stihl Garden - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


When you take the plug out, it is wet with fuel? It sounds like it is running rich and that's is why it starts first time. When you try to restart it is like have the choke in operation. I fixed your garbled question for you :>)

There is no adjustment. If your oil flow is insufficient, clean the filter. You may also need to clean the pump.

Hi, 1. The chainsaw has an oil reservoir which lubricates the chain in use. Using it a lot will cause sawdust to stick to that oil. Remember to top up the oil reservoir after each use with proper chainsaw oil. 2, There's probably too much 2-stroke oil in the petrol. It's not a problem, better too much than too little. 3. Top up the fuel with the correct fuel ti 2-stroke mix. I'd suggest you, or your friend use the instructions to disassemble the chain, guards & filters, to do a proper clean on this machine, to help it give you more years of service. Best of luck

Elaborate, "rebuilt"?

Check if flooded. Remove sparkplug and give the the recoil start several pulls to clear cylinder. If plug is wet, dry with compressed air or spray off with starter fluid.

Reinstall plug and try starting without choke.

Mandy, I'm not sure of the year of your trimmer but that model in good running condition should sell for around 100 dollars.

Sounds like an over fueling issue, Try resetting the carb to its standard settings, screw both tuning screws right in ant then turn anticlockwise to the following settings H 3/4 of a turn. L 1 full turn. This should set it back to standard. If this doesn't help then it could be a carb diaphram or sticking needle.

There is no absolute requirement to use Stihl fuel though they claim better results, something lots of users agree with. I suggest you read the manual again to ensure you have exactly followed the instructions. If you did and it won't work there is cause to return it to the dealer. While an older machine often needs fiddling with a new machine should not. One thought - if the dealer's demonstration was very short so the machine did not warm up thoroughly, it is possible that fouled the spark plug and that would serve to make restarting difficult. It would be wise to check the plug and ensure the spark is ok...

One wire is ignition module kill (primary of a magneto) and the other is ignition module frame (engine block).

The two wires run separate to the kill switch which is a momentary single pole.

More likely the starter recoil is binding.

make sure your air gap from the coil to the flywheel magnet is .010. if it is then take the ground wire off the coil and see if you have spark then. if you do then your ground wire is grounding out somewhere. process of elimination form the coil to the switch.
