The most common problem with a strimmer not starting is that there`s a problem with the fuel mix. Double check that you`ve used 40 parts fresh unleaded petrol to 1 part 2-stroke oil (40:1). Check the petrol you`ve used isn`t stale.
The best thing to do at this point is allow the trimmer to rest for 20 to 30 minutes then attempt starting again. Do not choke the unit, but leave the throttle lock on. If it still will not start, we recommend taking it to your local STIHL Dealer for evaluation.
