No start I have a Homelite 45cc chain saw. When you try and start it will **** the rope out of your hand like it is out of time. I have replaced the spark plug and checked the gas mixture. just got it from a friend and it has never started. I believe it has been setting for awhile. Can this be a carb problem

Possible ;Not likely. I would see if the woodrift key on the flywheel is partly sheared.

Homelite chain saw XL925 cord pull too hard but if you remove the spark plug then it pulls OK.


I have a Homelite XL and was having problems with rope pulling from difficult to unable to pull rope while trying to start saw. I removed the muffler, squirted some WD40 through the exhaust port ABOVE and BELOW the piston compression ring. Then pulled the rope about 20 times without spark plug to fully lubricate the piston and cylinder. Left it till the next day, pulled it through about 20 more times, put the spark plug back in,and it works well now. Guess it was just gummed-up a little and the lubrication freed it.

I havea 16 inch Homelite chain saw , I 've had it for about 25 years.I cannot not pull the starting rope. If I take out the spark plug ,it pulls with no effort.I have taken the starting rope cover off and...


If someone put the wrong sparkplug in the saw it would do the same thing. The plug threads could be too long and when the piston comes up it hits the plug and stopps. If the electrodes on the new plug extend farther out of the sparkplug the piston will come up and hit it and the engine will not turn.

Spring on homelite chainsaw came out while I was replacing pull rope. Help


Get someone to hold onto the recoil and spin the spring back in until desired tightness. You'll have to remove the clip on the centre post before you have to recoil the spring. Take your time so you only have to do it once. good luck

Homelite model No. 10609. 1H2100076 My pull rope won't recoil.


Not that i know of, take the cover off and rewind by hand, use greese on the coil and pull the rope in and out, if the rope doesnt recoil you are going to need a new pull start assembly

Go to the Homelite web site, which will get you to HCPI Electronics Parts catalog. You will need the model number. The parts are illustrated as a break-away drawing for various portions of the saw. Hope this helps.

Recoil spring on homelite chain saw doesn't retract pull rope


Easy suggestion would be to get new spring coil. Is it older saw? Have had to change mine on poulan saws before.

Chainsaw won't start. Can't pull starting cord out


Try replacing the muffler. The baffle or something inside the muffler may be loose and when compression is put on the cylinder from pulling starter rope to crank over engine it will cause baffle to move over and seal off muffler leaving nowhere for compression to go. When the sparkplug is removed this allows an outlet for compression when starter rope is pulled. Hope this helps

Chainsaw won't start. Can't pull starting cord out


Thats a little strange.
Only thing that comes to mind is someone else had access to it and swapped out a plug that is too long for your short plug, Check plug type in owners manual.
maybe on sunday their 4 wheeler wouldn't start and this was quick fix.
Take off the chain cover or starter and see if it turns back and forth almost one full turn with a sudden stop at both ends of rotation. (Hitting plug)
if this is ok get back to me.
