SOURCE: recoil starter will not engage engine when stater

The tooth/notches in the housing are worn out or broken,if the pull cord returns to the original position than the return spring is still good and you will only need to worry about replacing the gear/housing that attaches to the crankshaft .Good luck on the repair job ..BOB

I have a Toro 8526 snowblower. Pull cord drags in cold weather- I have to use electric start-once started and warmed up, pull cord works fine-is this condensation you think?


Sounds like your recoil starter is dry. when it's cold it makes it a lot worse. I would shoot a little oil into the recoil. Even try a shot of WD40 and if that works use an oil can to shoot oil into all the moving parts

Pull cord binding when mounted on engine but not when removed from engine


When you assemble the Recoil Starter, push it down onto the blower easily and then pull the cord slowly. It should drop into position as you slowly pull the cord.

My recoil starter won't pull out it is stuck


Just take the cover bolts for the pull cord off. Then see if it works. There are usually two cogs that engage into the shaft of the engine. These cogs push outward when you pull the cord, engaging the shaft of the engine.

Stihl chainsaw MS460 Can't pull recoil


It could be the recoil is stuck. a couple of things to check. Take the clutch and chain cover off, remove the spark plug and manually try to turn the motor over by turning the clutch. If the motor/engine is not seized, take the pull start/recoil cover off and pull on the cord to see if it will work and that the cord returns back into the recoil automatically. Don't take the nut off the inside of recoil holding the cord spool on. If the engine is not seized, and the recoil now goes in and out by pulling the start cord handle reassemble and pull over the engine a few times. This a good time to check the spark plug is working, now put the spark plug back in and start the engine. It's a good time to clean the air filter as well while the chainsaw is mostly apart and clean all oily sawdust off the chainsaw in the crevices etc..

Replace the starter rope


you have to remove the recoil from the engine. you will see where the previous rope was tied off. remove old rope and turn spring assembly until tight then back off 1 complete turn. after tying your rope, put through the passages until it comes out the housing hole pull rope all the way through and tug on it to make sure that your knot stays. holding the rope let it recoil in slowly. pull on rope a few times to make sure action is smooth. install handle and adjust rope to proper length

It sounds like the starter drive may be jammed. It should not be engaged unless you are using the starter motor. Take the spark plug wire off, put on heavy leather gloves, and try turning the blade by hand to dislodge the starter drive. If it does dislodge, plug the spark plug wire back up and try the pull start again.
