The carburetor is factory-adjusted for sea level, and if you use the trimmer at high altitudes, it may not get enough air for proper combustion. Most Stihl trimmer carburetors have adjustment screws for high- and low-speed operation, as well as an idle adjustment. The manufacturer’s recommended adjustment procedure is to screw both the high-speed screw — “H” — and low-speed screw — “L” — clockwise until they seat, then back each off a complete turn. After that, adjust the “H” screw no more than one-quarter turn in either direction. Make the adjustments while the engine is warm.
When cold-starting a Stihl trimmer, you must move the control on the control grip to the “Start” position and turn the choke on by moving the lever to the “Choke” position. The choke restricts air flow to the carburetor, producing a fuel-rich mixture in the combustion chamber. Once the trimmer starts, move the choke all the way in the opposite direction to open the carburetor and allow air to flow. If you don’t do this, the engine will sputter and die when you open the throttle, because too much fuel is in the combustion chamber to ignite.
