Similar issue with Stihl. I am a professional builder and have been using Stihl for many years. In the last year I have blown up two saws with less than 15 hrs on each unit. We use thesesaws for light work, small notches, some brushing and shaping in log and timber...

STIHL extremely difficult to start

#1129229
Purchased a Stihl chainsaw for our personal use ( homeowner). 78, yes 78 average number of pulls to get the POS started. Don't waste your money. We purchased a Poulan for use in CO at our summer residence. Starts on about the third pull. And, the Poulan was less expensive.

Stihl Chainsaw Review

#803498
Just bought a new sthil 291 chainsaw I flooded the engine and went to remove the spark plug. It was in so tight I'm surprised that they didn't strip the cylinder head installing it and when it finally broke loose my finger busted open against the saw. I'd like to have a few words with the gorilla that tightened it

Stihl Chainsaw Review

Bought a 16" chainsaw, in the middle of the first use it quit working. Took it to exchange the chainsaw but was told stihl does not allow exchanges or returns. A new chainsaw should not have problems!! They fixed it charged us a labor fee because they said it quit working because it needed a tune up! Really a brand new chainsaw needs a tune up very disappointed and pissed

Even if there were adjusting screws, you wouldn't know what do do with them. There could have been something wrong with your saw, and given the chance, any quality dealer woul...

I had a serious problem with a new Stihl saw. It actually caught fire the first time I used it. It shot out flames internally after 15 minutes of use. Customer service at the dealer and company has been poor. The dealer had to check if this is "covered under...

It's a faulty control module. Once it goes, everything is effected. It's the brain. It controls the solenoid. My shop has covered tons of these under warranty. Talk directly ...
