Question about Husqvarna Chain Saw 20" Bar
My Husqvarna Rancher chain saw pull cord will not retract when pulled. Can I take it apart and redo the spring somehow or do I need a new part?
Most of the rancher models are easy to look at. Take the four screws off that hold the starter cover on.When off have a look to see if the pulley is ok or one of the starter dogs(pawls) is jamed . If dogs ok take the screw out of the centre of pulley and remove it ,check for spring tension. if there is just be carful to leave sring in housing. look at spring if broken or out of shape renew it and rope.check for cracks in pulley. When renewing spring and rope get correct rope length and diameter. don't over tension new spring. hop this helps

Make sure the spring is going the right direction when pulld,put spring back in recoil housing carefully if you do it to quick it could spring back on you..... yes it hurts. after you have the spring back in the recoil housing take the rope off rope rotor.that's the piece that holds the rope.always replace to rope even if it looks good...feed new rope on rope rotor, first heat he ends of the rope so it will go in the holes easier.tie a hove hand knot in on end of rope.....put rope in rotor and pull knot thight,feed rope onto rotor until you have no more room for rope.... there should be a notch in rotor for rope to lay in....install rotor and screw tha hold rotor in place....have recoil handle handy....holding on to the rope spin the rotor two rotations....install handle......please be careful
