I purchased new a Stihl ms280 approx 3 years ago and almost from the start I had issues. I will start out saying that I do not use this saw commercially, it gets used about 1 weekend a month for a couple of hours. Some of the problems I have been able to correct (recoil flying apart and ignition modual burning out) but one of them still haunts me. The saw will start fine cold but after about 15 mins of use it wont idle and dies, then the ONLY way to restart it is to lock throttle in the wide open position pull the recoil about 10 times then it will restart. This is what I have done to try and correct this problem: removed, cleaned, and rebuilt carb (twice), adjusted mixtures screws from one extreme to the other, replaced intake boot from carb to the cylinder jug because it did have a tear in it and the spark plug multiple times. Does anyone have any ideas. Thanks.
