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

SOURCE: broken recoil spring
A new spring comes wound tight enough to be dropped into place in the starter housing (Easiest).
I invert and secure the housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection, both hands and no women around work area!). I'm 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. It will require about 2 turns of pretension to retract properly.
If you're lucky you can pull the cord out enough for a pretension then slightly raise and add the withdrawn cord to the spool.
Both methods require about 2 turns of pretension to rewind the cord when pulled.

SOURCE: rewind a recoil starter spring
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

HAhaha, oh this is so funny to me cause i suffered with the same problem, you have to grip the spring with needle nose pliers and wrap it tightly back arround, gripping the new layer every revolution, it sucks i know, then VERY CAREFULLY place it back it the spring retainer

If the spring is unwound.
Recoil Spring Rewind

If the starter cord needs a pretension, this works quite well.
