Sounds like the cord may be wrapped outside of the recoil pulley and may be spinning the motor backwards. The cord can backlash especially if the trimmer kicked a bit during starting.

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.

Pull Rope Broke... How do I replace it and still have it retract?


with the cover in your hand pull the cord out with a pair of needle nose pliers or a little screw driver and where the cord go through the case and before the wheel. pull 5 to 10 inches out and wrap the cord around the wheel turning the wheel but not winding the cord on., do 3 or 4 wraps then pull the handle to get all the cord out and let it retract. if not enough rewind just repeat with 2 wraps
