I have a stihl fs45. i can start it, but as soon as you touch the throttle, it just tries to die. i have tried to tune it but that makes no difference.
if you pull the throttle right in, it will stop. what should i do,
sounds like your exaust could be pluged. been useing stihl oil mix? if you don't the exaust will plug up.also aircooled engines need to be run wide open this will burn off carbon deposites so they won't buil up
pull the exaust screen out of the muffler and throw it away it should run fine then
I took the exhaust off, but i dont no what you mean by takng the screen out. There was no carbon build up in the exhaust. even when i started it without the exhaust, it still had the same problem.
The electrics seem o.k,
i think there is too much fuel getting to it, coz when you touch the throttle, it sprays loads.
what shall i do now
DO NOT TRY TO ADJUST THIS CARB!!!!
it has no adjustment screws and if it does they will have caps on them all you will do is ruin it take it to your dealer or buy a new one they are on sale now for $139.00 with a ten dollar rebate so it will only cost you 129.00 plus tax
