I have a poulan pro backpack blower (the 30cc one) and recently tried to start it and the rope extended all the way and won't recoil. i pulled it apart and can see the pulley inside the cover, but how do i...


The recoil spring might be broken or unhooked from the pulley. You would have to remove the pulley to find out what the problem is. But doing this, the spring could uncoil from the spring housing and it is dangerous that it could hit you in the face if you are not very careful. The spring is very difficult to rewind into the housing. I would bring it to a shop if I were you. Whatever you do, good luck.

After pulling the starter coil, it will not be pulled back into the machine or better said, it will not coil for another attempt at starting.


Sounds as either the recoil spring located under the the recoil housing has either broken or the plastic housing that holds the spring end has broken. you will need to remove the recoil housing to determine the problem. To remove:
1. Remove the drive tube by removing the clamp around the front of the housing and gently pull the drive tube from the engine.
2. Remove the torx or slotted screws holding the recoil assembly on
3. Remove the star washer with a flat screwdriver and gently lift the recoil from the housing.
The spring will be directly. You should be able to see the problem at that point.

The pull cord on my poulan pro weedeater will not


You have a broken recoil spring. Dis-assemble (pull-off) the recoil housing and check for proper dog alingnment, broken spring, or something jammed between recoil sprocket and engine block.

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)

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

How to repair spring starter on FL1500LE


The casing is situated so the spring faces the starting spool. The spool is plastic and the rope is wound around it. The hook goes to the spool. Put it back together carefully! Good luck...Lee

The starter pull rope will not retract


The recoil starter spring may need to be replaced or the starter pulley has become fused to the plastic housing. If it is not under warranty; taking to a shop to get fixed may be more than what you want to spend. It may be time for a new one.
Good Day.

Rewind a recoil starter spring. I've spent many hours trying to get the recoil spring put back in its place with no luck.


I DID THIS SAME JOB BY WINDING THE SPRING UP IN MY HAND AND THEN TOOK 2 TWIST TIES AND WRAPPED THEM AROUND THE SPRING TO KEEP IT IN THAT CONDITION. I THEN INSTALLED THE SPRING WITH THE LONG END OF THE TWIST TIE EXPOSED AND AFTER GETTING THE ROPE HOUSING IN PLACE I PULLED THE TEWIST TIES OFF WITH SOME NEEDLE NOSE PLIERS. HOPE THIS HELPS
