Stihl 230 Chainsaw Carburetor Adjustment

Stihl 230 semi-professional chainsaw review

According to its characteristics, 230 Stihl belongs to the class of semi-professional chainsaws designed for harvesting firewood at a professional level (i.e., not just spraying firewood in a bathhouse, but for example for sale). Due to the ratio of size and power, the chainsaw is ideal for building from wood and felling trees. Due to the limited tire size, which is only 35-40 cm, the manufacturer recommends felling trees with a diameter of NOT more than 30 cm.But, as practice shows, the Stihl 230 copes well with larger trunks.

Carburetor adjustment

If the Stihl 230 chainsaw starts up and stalls or simply works unstably, then it’s time to see how things are with the fuel supply system, namely the carburetor. Most likely the reason lies in it, and it requires maintenance. We will NOT dwell on this process in detail within the framework of this article, since K. Earlier we talked about the repair of the carburetor on chainsaws in general and Stihl in particular.

Stihl 230 Chainsaw Carburetor Adjustment

The articles raise questions about the main reasons why the saw starts “bullshit”. Detailed and detailed answers are given, which will help to repair car faults with your own hands.

If for some reason you cannot contact a specialized service of the Stihl company, and want to adjust the carburetor of the chainsaw with your own hands, then you definitely need to look informative. Concerning this issue. We present to your attention our selection.

The carburetor adjustment on the Stihl 230 and 250 saws is no different, so the owner of both chainsaws will be useful to see.

Repair Stihl MS 230

The tool is quite reliable and it breaks down only due to improper operation or a large amount of work, due to which the resource of the chainsaw has long been exhausted. One of the serious breakdowns is problems with the engine, in particular the cylinder-piston group.

Symptoms of the problem: complete or partial seizure of the chain. Chainsaw chain DOES NOT rotate, starter motor does not rotate.

If your 230 Stihl has similar symptoms and problems, we recommend that you check out interesting articles on this topic. The author tells in detail what to do and in what sequence in this situation.

Features of the Stihl MC 230 chainsaw

230 Stihl, like many of the company’s other saws, are manufactured with the latest technology. Let’s take a look at the main technologies used in the production of this chainsaw:

  • Preheating the carburetor. when working in the winter season, the chainsaw is switched to summer mode, the carburetor is blown by heated intake air, thus preventing its icing.
  • The innovative gas cap does not require a special key to open. The technology was developed and patented by Stihl. The process of opening, closing takes place without difficulty, and the tightness, in turn, remains at a height.
  • Anti-vibration system. Stihl, like Husqvarna, uses a special system to reduce vibrations transmitted from the tool to the person during operation. Without such a system, during prolonged work, the human body experiences great stress, which over time can lead to impaired blood circulation in the hands.
  • Other articles Stopping the chain with the QuickStop brake. The well-known handbrake lever activates the QuickStop mechanism, which allows you to stop the operation of the Stihl MC 230 chainsaw with lightning speed.
  • Efficient chain lubrication system Ematic. The system includes a variable oil pump, Oilmatic chain and Ematic guide bar. The peculiarity of the system is that the supplied oil reaches only the place where it is required, which made it possible to reduce oil consumption by half.

Which is better Stihl 180 or Stihl 230

  • The most important difference is that Stihl MC 230 has a larger engine displacement, which in turn greatly increases the resource and, as a result, the service life.
  • Chainsaw Stihl 230 is equipped with a heating system that prevents carburetor icing when working in the winter.
  • The 230th is heavier than its younger brother by as much as 700 grams. Believe me, when doing light work (cutting branches), this difference is significant.
  • Therefore, the price of Stihl MS 230 is also higher.

These are the main differences and they are important. Weigh the pros and cons carefully before choosing.

Specifications

Let’s take a look at the characteristics of the Stihl MS 230 chainsaw, declared by the manufacturer:

  • Engine displacement: 40.2 cu. Cm;
  • Engine power: 2.7 HP / 2.0 kW;
  • Idling 2800 rpm;
  • Chainsaw weight: 4.6 kg
  • Tire length: 35-40 cm. / 16 inches;
  • Chain pitch: 3/8 “;
  • Oil tank volume: 200 cc Cm;
  • Fuel tank capacity: 470 cc Cm;
  • Sound power level: 113 dB;

According to some reports, the engine displacement is 45.4 cubic centimeters. According to data from the official website of the Stihl company, the value of this technical characteristic is indicated in the range from 40.2 to 45.4. Therefore, in order to find out the real parameters of the 230 Stihl engine, I recommend looking at the passport for the chainsaw, which comes in the configuration.

The complete set is standard. The cost of 230 Stihl includes the following items:

  • Chainsaw;
  • Tire and chain;
  • Key screwdriver for chain tensioning and oil and gasoline filling;
  • Screwdriver;
  • Chain cover;
  • Manual.

Summing up, it is worth noting that the semi-professional class chainsaw. Stihl MS 230 is in great demand, thanks to its good performance indicators. True, you have to pay for them, since K. The cost of dust is far from being in the budget segment. The main malfunctions that need to be eliminated are related to the carburetor, in solving THESE problems you will be helped by the masters (published in the article) or the services of specialized centers. Serious malfunctions very rarely occur, but here I decide everything. All this speaks of the reliability of the German Stihl dust. We recommend this chainsaw to the choice of those who need a reliable tool that is more powerful for every day, for solving problems of an average level of complexity.

Step by step setup

“Partner 350” is regulated similarly to many models of chainsaws.

In this model, we have three regulators:

  • Low rpm. L
  • High. H
  • Singles. T.

Once released from production, these chainsaws are tuned to deliver more mix than necessary. This should be the case only in the first hours of work.

Distribution chamber

The cover of the chamber is the compensator body, which is attached to the carburetor with 4 screws, the boundaries of the body and the cover are fitted with a gasket that increases the height of the chamber and is responsible for sealing.

When You May Need Adjustment

With proper operation, a good Stihl 180 chainsaw (or any other) should serve you well for a long time. How to start a Chinese Stihl 180 chainsaw correctly. But everything happens.

The most common reasons are:

  • Loose fixing screws
  • The engine is worn out (in this case, adjusting this chainsaw, like GoodLuck, or Sturm will only help for a while, ideally it is better to immediately carry it for repair)
  • The carburetor is clogged (in this case, it will also have to be cleaned).

So let’s get started!

What is still useful for you?

  • First, an annotation on the operation of the device itself.
  • Secondly, the tachometer. Why exactly is it useful to us, let’s see a little later.
  • B-3. screwdriver.

Surprisingly, this is all we need.

It is them that you will need to adjust, or twist, or unscrew, in order to enrich or lean the fuel mixture.

If you need a lean mixture, just turn the regulator clockwise, if you enrich it, then accordingly.

To adjust the idle speed, the screw, which is responsible for this, also needs to be twisted clockwise in order to increase the speed, or, as you already thought of, in the opposite direction to decrease them.

Throttle flap

The throttle valve, installed in the carburetor body, is responsible for increasing the supply of the fuel mixture directly to the engine cylinder. At the moment of pressing the gas, the throttle valve opens slightly, thereby increasing the throughput of the channel and the fuel from the carburetor cavity, rushes into the cylinder in a larger volume.

The carburetor choke is installed on the back of the throttle and is responsible for starting a cold engine, it is controlled by the motor control lever. For a cold start, the air damper is closed 100 percent, for ordinary work it is opened.

Stihl 250 saw adjustment

When the motor warms up, it is best to re-tune it. At idle, turn the screw T counterclockwise until the chain stops, after which we adjust each of them in the order: L, H, T.

Screw L must be returned counterclockwise ¼ turn at the moment when the largest turns begin at idle.

Your actions should lead to the fact that the engine immediately accelerates and makes a noise like four times.

The Husqvarna carburetor is adjusted in the same way.

Before adjusting the DCC, it is imperative to make sure that both filters (air and fuel) are clean. In addition, there should be no air leakage into the motor from the side (through oil seals, a gasket under the UPT or its accelerating pump, or elsewhere), otherwise it will NOT be possible to adjust the carburetor.

Preparing to adjust the carburetor

Almost any VAC is regulated by 3 screws:

  • 1. Main Jet Bolt, designated “H” and Used to set the saw motor to maximum speed.
  • 2. Idle Jet Bolt, designated “L” and Used for low speed setting. That is, to regulate idle speed.
  • 3. Bolt adjusting idle speed, designated in different manufacturers in different ways: “S”, “LA” (Stihl), “T” (Partner. Husqvarna).

There are also carburettors with fewer adjusting screws. This is how manufacturers protect their products from unprofessional interference and at the same time try to simplify their customization.

For safe regulation during its implementation, the following rules should be followed:

  • 1. The tool must be stably placed on a flat surface of a rigidly fixed object (workbench, rack, table).
  • 2. The chain should be directed away from yourself and others present.
  • 3. Between the chain and any surrounding objects there must be a safe distance, which guarantees the impossibility of their mutual contact.

In such cases, you can adjust the carburetor on the chainsaw as follows. First, launch the tool and warm it up for 10 minutes.

Then we continue to adjust the idle speed using the screw “S” (“LA”, “T”):

  • If the chain after manipulations with the bolt “L” is stationary, then it is necessary to smoothly rotate “S” (“LA”, “T”) clockwise (hereinafter POChS) until It starts to move. Then we twist “S” 1 / 8-1 / 4 turn back.
  • If the chain moves, we rotate “S” (“LA”, “T”) PRCHS until It stops, and then we twist “S” 1 / 8-1 / 4 turns in the same direction.
READ  Chainsaw stalls under load cause

The engine should run smoothly. And we check it, how it accelerates. It is considered that the motor operates normally in acceleration mode if, when the accelerator is pressed smoothly, the revolutions for a short time and without “dips” increase to their maximum value. If the engine runs unevenly and / or accelerates poorly, then it is necessary to slightly. a maximum of 1/8 of a whole revolution. turn the “L” PRCHS.

Chainsaw operation check

Now check the setting of the adjusting bolt “H”. To do this, accelerating the engine to maximum speed. Only it is impossible to drive it for a long time without load, you need to pause. We look at the exhaust and listen to the engine. If too much smoke comes out of the muffler, moreover, gray smoke, and the chainsaw makes a lot of noise, then the carburetor is making an excessively rich mixture.

At the end of the adjustment, we check the dust at idle speed. With a properly adjusted DCL, it should work like this:

  • 1. The chain is motionless.
  • 2. The sound of the engine is almost like a four-stroke.
  • 3. Pressing the accelerator leads to a quick set of maximum revs.

If these conditions are not fully met, you should use “S” (“LA”, “T”), as indicated above, or repeat the setting from the very beginning.

This is the approximate adjustment. For accurate, you need a tachometer. We do all the same, just turn the adjusting bolts, focusing on the readings of this device. This will allow you to accurately and, most likely, adjust the carburetor from the first time, having achieved, depending on the model of the tool for working with a tree, the idle speed setting at 2800-3300 rpm or higher and maximum. 11000-15000 rpm. Which ones should be set, you should look in the technical documentation (operating instructions) on dust.

After maintenance, such as disassembly and flushing, or previous unsuccessful attempts to adjust, this assembly may become completely misaligned. So much so that the chain saw will not start at all. In this case, it is necessary to configure the device of the engine power system in 2 stages, conventionally called:

  • Basic. when the engine is not running;
  • Final. done on warm up the engine.

In the first step, the adjusting screws “L” and “H” slowly screw in the POPS until it stops. In this case, you do not need to make great efforts and try to tighten them. Then we turn both screws back. for many models, dust is 1 turn. And for some. by 1.5 turns. There may be other settings. This should be clarified in the technical documentation for the chainsaw. In some models, the tip is applied directly to the cover of their case near the adjusting screws.

Let’s move on to the final stage. We are trying to start the engine. If there were no manipulations with the adjustment “S” (“LA”, “T”) and exactly as recommended, set “L” and “H”, then it should start.

If “S” had to spin for the above reasons, then the engine, most likely, will NOT start right away. After each attempt, it will be necessary to tighten this screw by 1/4 of the POCHS turn and try to start the engine again. In the end he must earn.

Then we warm up the engine for 10 minutes. If after starting it or in the process of warming up the motor is unstable or the chain starts to move, then it is necessary to slowly and carefully rotate “S” (“LA”, “T”) of the PRChS. As soon as the engine starts running steadily and / or the chain stops, stop adjusting immediately. If the motor stalls, then we turn this screw by 1 / 8-1 / 4 (see the technical documentation) of the POChS turnover.

In the process of warming up, the idle speed may start to increase, then, again, it will be necessary to “S” (“LA”, “T”) start slowly turning the PRCHS until they become normal by ear. On already warming up the engine, we continue to adjust the power supply system assembly, as described in the previous chapter.

Dismantling the carburetor Stihl 180

To begin with, it is worth deciding why it may even be necessary to regulate and has a stihl ms 180 carburetor. So, this must be done in the following cases:

  • If the chainsaw is idling;
  • Repairs may be required if the saw does NOT start;
  • Power loss is observed;
  • Excessive fuel consumption;
  • The chainsaw develops the highest speed.
  • Stalls when accelerating.

This list can be continued for a long time, but we have identified the main prerequisites. Before proceeding with the adjustment, you need to know what are the main parts of the carburetor on the Stihl 180 chainsaw, and who makes it.

So, the stihl ms 180 carburetor is designed and manufactured by a subsidiary of Stihl, under the name Zama. Dismantling the Stihl 180 chainsaw part 3. duration: adjusting the chainsaw carburetor. Stihl 250 chainsaw adjustment and tuning of the carburetor. Unique Carburetors, on their body have a company logo that guarantees product quality.

The carburetor of the Stihl 180 chainsaw, indiscriminately, can only be adjusted by the number of idle revolutions. It is impossible to increase or decrease the fuel supply in different modes using special screws. Chainsaw Stihl 250 when you press the gas stalls, and. The manufacturer restricts access to the adjustment and does NOT install these screws. How to adjust the carburetor to the correct idle speed is very painstakingly described in the manufacturer’s instructions.

To increase the flow, the rocker arm of the needle valve in the distribution chamber must be bent upward, and to decrease, downward. This regulates the stroke of the needle and, accordingly, the throughput of the valve.

It is not worth carrying out the adjustment without the help of others, since this must be done very accurately and, in case of an error, it is almost impossible to return the original position of the rocker arm.

After we have examined the carburetor device, it will NOT be difficult to find the reason why the fuel enters the combustion chamber in a larger volume. This is due to the wear of the boundary gasket by the compensator cover and the carburetor body. Stihl 180 chainsaw carburetor adjustment, a tip to which you can see. You ask how this might affect?

The answer is simple, by shrinking, the gasket releases the diaphragm on the floor by Tolik mm down. She, in turn, will press harder on the rocker arm of the needle valve, it will open more position and the fuel will flow in excess (it will start overflow).

Another reason is the stretching of the diaphragm itself, this happens as a result of natural wear and tear. It is impossible to prevent this process, but you can solve the problem by periodically changing all gaskets, carburetor diaphragms, and fuel pump. If your chainsaw starts to sneeze and does not start well, then the time has come to adjust the carburetor on the Stihl 250 chainsaw with your own hands. There is a repair kit for this.

As follows from the instructions, before long storage, it is necessary to drain the fuel from the tank, after which it will start dust and burn the gasoline from the carburetor. Chainsaw Stihl 180. device and adjustment of the carburetor chainsaw Stihl 180 ms 230, ms 250. Failure to comply with this usual rule entails the following consequences.

The forksnuy valve, being in a certain contact with the fuel, sticks to the body, since the gasoline gradually evaporates and only sticky oil remains. It is impossible to change the nozzle, since they are not in the repair kit, you can only test it, knock it out and rinse it, which cannot always be done, and without spoiling the nozzle with all this.

In order to purge, change the gaskets or the needle valve, the carburetor must be disassembled. To do this, unscrew 4 screws on the expansion joint cover and one on the fuel pump.

Having opened the case, you should be as careful as possible, because if debris gets into the inside of the carburetor, it will make its work impracticable. The thickness of the channels in it is comparable to the width of a whine or even a human hair.

Repair of the Stihl 180 carburetor, you can see below. In it, the master carefully knows about the dilemma and clearly shows the entire repair process.

Trimmers and chainsaws

Chainsaw carburetor adjustment using the example of STIHL MS 250

The main role in adjusting the carburetor of the Stihl chainsaw is played by the upper screw (closest to the muffler).

According to the factory parameters (indicated on the cover of the chainsaw), it must be unscrewed by 1 turn, and then it must be corrected. if you unscrew it, then the working mixture is enriched (more gasoline gets into the air-fuel mixture), if this screw is screwed in, then the working mixture becomes lean (less gasoline gets into the air / fuel mixture).

Before adjusting the carburetor of the Stihl chainsaw, it is necessary to service the chainsaw (cleaning the chainsaw carburetor, wash the chainsaw engine, replace the spark plug, clean the air filter, check the chain tension, adjust the idle speed, warm up the engine).

Tighten the screws “H” and “L” (on a muffled chainsaw) as far as the stop, and then turn both out 1 turn. 2. In this we are adjusting the carburetor chainsaw Stihl ms 250 repair. Start the chainsaw and warm it up. Chainsaw carburetor adjustment carburetor adjustment is needed NOT Stihl 180? The reasons. Chainsaw carburetor adjustment 180, 230, 250 and second.

Give full throttle and screw “H” to achieve maximum engine speed equal to 14000 rpm. By tachometer (by engine speed counters). Keep the maximum speed for adjustment NOT more than 10 seconds! 3. What is the distance on the starter from the poles to the module? What is the correct adjustment of the chainsaw carburetor?, Stihl 250 ms.

Use the bolt “LA” of the idle speed stop to make the chain start to move, and then return this bolt by ¼ turn counterclockwise.

If, after this adjustment of the chainsaw carburetor, the idle gait is not stable, and the chainsaw accelerates poorly, then the screw “L” must be turned back slightly counterclockwise until the chainsaw begins to quickly gain momentum and work well at idle. I adjusted the carburetor of the Stihl 250 chainsaw with my own for this. Then correct the bolt “LA” (idle speed on the tachometer should be 2800 rpm).

Note: It will NOT work to adjust the chainsaw carburetor if there is air leaking into the engine from the side (through the gasket under the carburetor, through the carburetor accelerator pump, through the chainsaw crankshaft oil seals, or elsewhere).

For an independent carburetor option, you must familiarize yourself with its device and understand the order of work, which are carried out to adjust the parts responsible for the correct functioning of the component parts of the device and parts close to it.

It is necessary to carefully handle the items for the system option, also to determine whether the set characteristics correspond to very permissible values.

The carburetor serves to mix the combustible mixture with air, observing the proportions established in advance. If clear doses are NOT adhered to, the proper functioning of the motor is at risk. When a huge amount of air enters during the mixing of a component, and there is not enough fuel, then such a mixture is considered “poor”.

Over-saturation should not be allowed, because with a large amount of fuel, in comparison with air, malfunctions or engine wear are also likely. Do-it-yourself Stihl 180 chainsaw repair. 142, 240, 365 do it yourself. Carburetor adjustment is necessary Not only before the initial introduction, but also when any differences in its operation are revealed. To work with a chainsaw, do not forget to run it in.

Components of the carburetor

The carburetor design contains a standard set of parts, but the suspension may vary slightly from the manufacturer. Components:

  • The foundation. Do-it-yourself carburetor adjustment on. It is a special tube that visually resembles an aerodynamic structure. Air passes through it. In the transverse direction, a damper is located in the middle of the pipe. Its position can be changed. The more it is Pushed into the passage, the less air enters the engine.
  • Diffuser. This is the tapered part of the tube. With its help, the air flow rate increases exactly in the segment from which the fuel comes out.
  • Fuel supply channels. The fuel mixture is contained in the float chamber, then passes into the nozzle, from which it flows into the sprayer.
  • Float chamber. It is a separate structural element, reminiscent of the shape of a tank. Designed to constantly maintain an optimal level of fuel fluid in front of the entrance to the channel where the air comes from.

Looking for models that are cheaper, but reliable and time-tested? Pay attention to Russian-made chainsaws.

Or Explore foreign chainsaw manufacturers such as Stihl.

Every carburetor owner must have the right tools to adjust this system. There are three adjusting screws, which are located on the body of the device. They have their own markings:

  • L. screw for low speed correction.
  • H. screw for adjusting high speed.
  • T. regulates the idle speed, in most cases it is used for experiments.

Chainsaw air filter

Before adjusting the carburetor, you need to prepare the device:

  • The engine warms up, that is, it starts about 10 minutes before the repair, and turns off when you start work (see How to start a chainsaw).
  • The air filter is checked and washed.
  • The chain is stopped by turning the screw T as far as it will go (see Chain oil).

Ural adjustment

It differs slightly in that it should not be carried out in sharp maximum revolutions, but Make sure that the chain picks them up quickly, but smoothly, without moving along the bus.

In any case, you should take the adjustment very seriously, because if it is done incorrectly, the saw will not stay with you for a long time. Take care of your tools and if you are not confident in your abilities, it is better to take it to a specialist.

When purchasing a HUS365 chainsaw, you should be prepared for the fact that after a month of its use, you will not want to deal with any saw other than this brand. This is explained by its reliability, affordability, and most importantly, ease of management.

So let’s get started!

What is still useful for you?

  • First, an annotation on the operation of the device itself.
  • Secondly, the tachometer. Why exactly is it useful to us, let’s see a little later.
  • B-3. screwdriver.

Surprisingly, this is all we need.

It is them that you will need to adjust, or twist, or unscrew, in order to enrich or lean the fuel mixture.

If you need a lean mixture, just turn the regulator clockwise, if you enrich it, then accordingly.

In the transverse direction, a damper is located in the middle of the pipe. Its position can be changed. The more it is Pushed into the passage, the less air enters the engine.
  • Diffuser. This is the tapered part of the tube. With its help, the air flow rate increases exactly in the segment from which the fuel comes out.
  • Fuel supply channels. The fuel mixture is contained in the float chamber, then passes into the nozzle, from which it flows into the sprayer.
