How to start the Stihl FS38 Strimmer
To start your Stihl FS 38 follow these simple steps.
- first, move the on/off switch to the on or run position

- next release your hand in the throttle will be in the starting position
- set the choke lever to the cold start or close position (if the engine is warm or was just recently run set the choke in the open position
- now depress the fuel pump bulb at least five times (even if the bulb appears to already have fuel in it in the proper position pull on the rope until you feel it engage then give it a brisk strum, do this until either the engine tries to fire within five pools or if you have attempted five pools and the engine does not try to fire in either case do not pull on the rope more than five times.
at this point move the choke to the open or run position if you don’t do this you may very well flood your engine
- then with the choke properly set pull the rope a few times until the engine starts once the engine is running squeeze the throttle trigger to disengage the catch and the engine will settle down to idle speed
