Recoil spring problem


I have the same chainsaw and have never had a problem with it.

If you have changed the starter rope or recoil spring in the past, it is important that you hold the new spring with needle nose pliers and install it correctly. Once the spring is in make sure wind the rope correctly-clockwise. If not the new spring will be damaged.

16 inch poulan chainsaw got hot and started to smoke and now the recoil no longer works. I took the cover off and there is two springs that seem sprung. should I toss it and forget it or this something I...


how old is the polan 16 inch is it a solid body saw or does it have anti vibration handles, so your hands dont go numb after cutting for 15 minutes.reason i asked is: you can buy a brand new reconditioned homelite with anti vibration handle for 85.00&shiping.
at the very least,your polan needs the recoil starter fixed
and that does not address why the poulan got hot & started to smoke.
For the problems you described , at least $100.00 labor plus parts to fix at a chain saw shop
It might barely be worth it if you were a do it yourselfer and wanted to try to fix it.
if you dont want to be a diy chain saw mechanic, sell your polan for parts for $20.00 on ebay and buy a new homelite
16 inch 38 cc with anti vibration handle ,so you can cut for 6 hours straight, if need be. You get a reconditioned saw that is ready to go and a 90 day warranty. or buy the saw brand new for $110.00 and free shipping@ amazon.com

Starter coard broken


The starter housing is removed with a #20 Torx bit, then the cord replacement becomes obvious. You'll need to prewind the spring about half it's capacity before engaging the cord reel to the rewind spring. Good luck with it. These cords won't break if you use short pulls, preferably with your foot holding the right hand hold to the floor.

If looking for parts your OM is of little value. You can find an IPL (exploded parts list) here (only one PP255 listed):
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/PP255-Gas-Saw/75.PP255-Gas-Saw.1.59.1.html
Rear vibration (isolation spring)s appear to be item 5 or 59 on the "Exterior Assembly" print.

There is contact us number in the OM if you want to contact Poulan. HTH

Cant remember how to put the spring back on the pull cord recoil


This reply is based on the following assumptions:
A Poulan PP2375LE (wildthing) Type 2
The starter recoil spring is unwound.
All components aer servicable

Poulan 2375LE Type 2 IPL
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/2375LE-Gas-Saw-Type-2/75.2375LE-Gas-Saw-Type-2.1.59.1.html
Starter components and reassembly order are illustrated on the "Handle, Chassis & Bar Assembly" detail.

If the spring needs rewound this is how I do it, there are other methods.
Recoil Spring Rewind
I invert and secure the housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection, and both hands). I am right handed so I tension the spring enough to insert it inside the previous coil while holding what has already been installed with my left about 180° from my right hand. The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely inserted. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool.

This illustrates proper pretension and rope installation:
Smalleng.com (about 3.5 minutes long and worth watching the entire video)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRyy3MlsjVo

If yours is not a Type 2 you can find the correct IPL here:
Poulan.com
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/POULAN-WEED-EATER/75.59.html
The dash number of your serial number is the type.

I hope this was helpful

Poulan model p 3314 33cc chainsaw recoil jams up, I have taken it apart, and the pulley seems to be side loaded the screw that holds the pulley is crooked.


I recommend you contact Poulan 1-877-500-7499, there may be a free replacement kit available. If you call please have your saw at your side before dialing.
An IPL for your saw can be found here:
Poulan.com
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/POULAN-WEED-EATER/75.59.html (P3314 Gas Saw)
There are 2 different types "Spring Assist Pulley System" and "Standard Pulley System". Exercise care when you order. HTH

Recoil not recoilling good


hey fark
This is easy. Take off rope housing (four screws). Once off, pull the string out 3/4 of the way. Once out, tie string around spindle one extra time ( real easy just wrap string once more around winding spool ). This oughta make string snap back after pulls.
