Hi, I need help from anyone who has had some experience with gas powered chain saw's. I have a Stihl unit with a 28inch bar on it. The problem I am facing is that the machine starts very well when cold. Once it runs for three to four minutes at high speed the unit refuses to start. I am in India and there is no one here with knowhow to identify the problem. I contacted the guys at Stihl but they seem disinterested to help. Horrible service. This is a pretty old model a 070 unit. The machine has been unused and is near new.
Had a doubt on the piston rings and have replaced the same as the top ring was broken. Compression is great now.
I need help!!!

After the obvious stuff like a plug, fuel filter and carburator adjustments, the most common cause of failure on chainsaws is crankshaft seals. On an older unit like you describe, they have probably dried out and are leaking air. On a two stroke, air leaks past the crank seals allow the saw to run too lean.
