New or used unit? If new can you return it ? If not you will need to take the recoil assembly off the engine and rewind the spring. Check inside the recoil assembly to see if the spring is broken or just popped out of place on either end. If it is broken your done. You will need to find a Poulan dealer to get a new spring. If new take it to a Poulan dealer for warrenty replacement. If you want to try to rewind the spring look to see where one end of the spring fits into the housing and the other into the spool. On the edge of the puley should be a notch. Place the rope in the notch and turn the pulley it in the direction needed to wind the spring about 4 or 5 turns. If it now pulls all the rope in you are done.If not put the rope back in the notch and wind the spring tighter till the rope is all pulled in.

SOURCE: Pull-cord will not retract.

If you put a longer cord on it , then it will not retract as far and get stuck.

SOURCE: My Craftsman lawn mower starter

I have had this situation before on a lawnmower. I didn't have a craftsman, but is probably the same issue. Basically, the spring that recoils the cord back in either broke or came unwound. When the mower is not running, the cogs on the pull chord keeps the cord from coming out. When the mower is running, the spring is not wound enough to hold the chord in and thus releases or doesn't hold it in.
Try pulling the pull chord assembly off and rewind the spring.

SOURCE: poulan prolink pp335 will start runs for approx 1 min then dies , noticed primer bulb retracts slow after being pushed in

This is classic fuel blockage, start by changing the fuel filter in the fuel tank, if no better check fuel hose has not collapsed or become trapped, if no better remove the carb, under the pump cover ( alluminium cover held with a single screw ) under the diaphram is an internal filter, clean or replace.

Pull cord won't retract


Hi Susan. It sounds like the spring has either snapped or become un attached. It's going to be a two person job to re do it. It may be worth while going to a scrap metal merchant and getting the recoil starter of an old mower.

My poulan pro lawn tractor won't start. when i turn the key it click's 1 time can you help ?


Have you checked the battery terminal connections? Is the battery charged fully? Are you sitting on the seat when you try to crank the mower? Could be any of the above but most likely battery connection or the battery is discharged or old.

Lawnmower stored for a year tipped up and all oil leaked out -- Won't start now.


You have most likely gotten oil on the coil, You need to remove the pull start assembly and you will see the coil/flywheel, check for any oil contamination which you can clean up with brake/carb cleaner.

I hit rocks with my lawn mower on accident, and now it will run for a few seconds and turn off


This happens often. Sometimes your mower will start and run again and sometimes it won't. When it doesn't run it's because your timing is off, caused by a dented or sheared key.
To replace remove top cover to engine, and any other side attachments, this should expose the flywheel. Remove the top bolt and look between flywheel and top of crankshaft, you will see a small square notch. This is where the shear key is placed. Remove the flywheel and replace the shear key. Replace all parts in reverse order and you should be mowing again. GOOD LUCK.

Just installed a new pull cord...the cord does not retract. How do I fix the problem?


The best way i found is to twist counter clock wise a dozen turns,hold the spool with vise grips,feed the roop through all holes you need to go through, into the reel knot, i burn the knot, keeps it from slipping out,then slowly let the spring bring the slak in when i release the vise grips!

I just purchased a poulan lawn mower at Kents. Have not used yet. Can you add unleaded gas to the poulan lawn mower/do you have to mix the gas?


You do not mix gas in a 4 cycle engine. You have to mix gas and oil for a 2 cycle engine, such as in a weed whacker, chainsaw, or leaf blower. I do not know of any 2 cycle Poulan mowers (or any other brands for that matter). Unleaded gas is all you can buy in the United States and all current mowers will run on it, although they really don't like that new ethanol additive. If your mower is new then it should have come with an owner's manual which will explain what to do, as well. Hope this answers your question.
