The rope broke when I tried to start the chainsaw. How do I replace it?


Your rewind spring is now sprung. Remove recoil assy ( the part your rope slides into). Remove all old rope remnants and rewind the spring. Install new rope, tie it off and slowly release spring rewinding the rope.

REPLACING STARTER SPRING/HUSQVARNA MODEL141


To rewind the spring is a bit of an art, hook the end of the spring into the stub on the starter, now start to wind each coil into the cover, making sure you keep your thumb on the coils you have wound in so as they do not spring out, otherwise order a new spring which will come pre wound in a keeper to make instalation very easy.

While repairing broken starter rope rewind spring popped out. need instructions to rewind and reinstall. judy


Re winding starter springs is a real black art, and not for the faint hearted, always wear eye protection before attemping this, hook the end of the spring into the cover, now start winding the spring in one coil at a time, keep your thumb on the coils that you have already wound in to stop them popping out, keep winding it in and turning the cover as well to aid you.Eventually you will come to the last centre coil which should just drop in.
Good luck

Starter cord will not rewind. How do I get to the coil spring? Is the clutch pressed on? Removing the clutch is the only way, I see, to remove the plastic housing. A breakdown would be very helpful.


The starter is on the flywheel side of the engine, not the clutch side. The whole starter mechanism should release from the left side case with the removal of three of four screws. Likely, you will find a broken rewind spring end, or it has slipped from a fastening point on one end or the other. Remove the starter cord to deal with the spring which should have several turns in a CCW direction to pull the cord back into the starter housing. If you need to make a fresh knot in the cord, be sure to melt the end to prevent the knot from pulling out. Hope this helps!

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.

Starter recoil spring reload, How?


If the spring is unwound.
Recoil Spring Rewind
I invert and secure the starter 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 rewound. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. It will require about 2 turns of pretension for it to retract properly.

If the starter cord needs a pretension, this works quite well.

Broken recoil spring


A new spring comes wound tight enough to be dropped into place in the starter housing (Easiest).

I invert and secure the housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection, both hands and no women around work area!). I'm 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. It will require about 2 turns of pretension to retract properly.
If you're lucky you can pull the cord out enough for a pretension then slightly raise and add the withdrawn cord to the spool.

Both methods require about 2 turns of pretension to rewind the cord when pulled.
