Not trying to pick on you but I suspect something was put together wrong when the carb was rebuilt. If you can get a service manual for you saw or carb take the carb back apart and do the rebuild exactly as the manual describes. One little change can make all the difference in the world on how well an engine runs. Roger

Talk to a Stihl dealer that is where you would get the manual. If you bought the saw from the dealer he might make a copy for you. If you didn't expect to pay for the copy and or new manual. Roger
