Question about Homelite Garden
I’ve had a Homelite 45cc 18” chainsaw for about 2 years. In those two years it’s done everything I’ve asked of it including starting very easily every time. I’ve been extremely happy with it. I cut some wood on Saturday without a single problem and then on Monday when I tried to start it, I couldn’t pull the rope out more than an 1” – 1 ½”. I took the starter cover off and checked to make sure the rope hadn’t come off. I also took out the spark plug which was dry. When the plug is out I am able to pull the rope out all the way and I can see the piston moving up and down. However, as soon as I put the plug back in it goes right back to me not being able to pull the rope out again. I know nothing about engines and I’m hoping that someone has experienced this sort of thing before me and can tell me what what’s wrong.
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.
