Hi Rick:
Have you pulled the filter out of the gas tank and checked it? Sometimes they will get pretty gummed up.

How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

If your chainsaw still starts and then stops working, check the air filter. Clean or replace the air filter if it is dirty or damaged. Another reason that your chainsaw starts and then stops working could be that the spark arrestor is dirty or clogged. If this is the case, clean it with a wire brush.
The carburetor might be clogged. A clogged carburetor is often caused by leaving fuel in the chainsaw for a long period of time. Over time, some of the ingredients in the fuel may evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance. This sticky fuel can clog up the carburetor and cause the chainsaw engine to stall.
There are many factors that can stop your chainsaw from running, including a bad spark plug or dirty air filter. There are simple problems: a broken fuel line, bad fuel, wrongly calibrated high-low adjustment screw. Also, more complex issues like a damaged carburettor or an engine compression problem.
The carburetor might be clogged. A clogged carburetor is often caused by leaving fuel in the chainsaw for a long period of time. Over time, some of the ingredients in the fuel may evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance. This sticky fuel can clog up the carburetor and cause the chainsaw engine to stall.
Remove the spark plug and inspect if it is dirty, cracked, eroded, or damaged. There may also be a heavy carbon buildup or a burned-up electrode. If the spark plug has one or more of these issues, replace it with a new one.
If the filter becomes clogged, not enough fuel will reach the engine for it to run properly. Because your chainsaw will idle, but dies when it is revved up to full power, it means that the filter is only partially clogged; it will allow enough fuel to the engine to run on idle, but not enough to sustain full throttle.
If your Stihl chainsaw starts up with a reassuring puttering sound, but dies when you pull the throttle trigger, there likely is an issue with the fuel, but the carburetor could need adjustment. If the saw stalls while it`s idling, it`s almost surely a misadjusted carburetor.
Common Symptoms of Bad Gas:

The engine won`t start. The primer bulb isn`t working. There is a bad smell in the gas tank. The engine isn`t revving up all the way.

STIHL currently recommends that you do not store or use fuel older than 60 days, and preferably no longer than 30 days, even with a stabilizer. Read more about storing your outdoor power equipment.

Chain saw starts and stays running in half choke but as soon as you put it in run it diesl
ANSWER : The machine is running too lean, start by checking the easy stuff first, pull the fuel hose out from inside the fuel tank, clean/ replace the filter on the end of the hose ( as a temperary test fill the tank with fuel and try the saw with no fuel filter on the hose, if it runs better then the filter is blocked ), follow the fuel hose up to the carb, check for any splits or cracks, pay special attention to the area where it leaves the fuel tank, and where it fits to the carb, if it is still no better, make an adjustment to the carb mixture screws, they are marked H and L there will also be a screw marked T or I this is just the tick over screw. Unscrew both H and L screws ( anti clockwise ) 1/2 turn, this will richen the mixture, if not much better unscrew the L screw a further 1/2 turn. If the saw has not improved there is a blockage in the carb, let me know what make and model of machine we are working with so we can talk about cleaning the carb.
