  1. Could be the coil thats acting up when warm, you not got a known good one to borrow off another saw just to try it? If it is the coil then i would replace with a genuine one and not a chinese copy, they are pants and dont stand the test of time.
  2. The homeowner model saws are defo made in china, i’ve had a load off ebay for £6-£8 and are branded on the top plate with stihl/zama on them, the pro saws are majority still german made i think with only a odd one or two from china.

  10. Stihl lists a bar for the 023/025 up to 18”...... but as htb says, you’d probably be better suited with a smaller bar than you’ve got at present, 14” would be my choice, running 3/8” picco .050” gauge.
