SOURCE: Chainsaw won't start

Time to get out your trusty tool kit. Remove the side cover assembly and look at the recoil assembly. You should see a pair of fingers that when you pull the cord move toward the center. If the fingers are there and not broken, make sure they move when you pull the cord. clean them if dirty or have foreign objects (like sawdust) around them. If the fingers are broken, replace them. You should be able to purchase them from your local saw shop.

This does not sound good, start by removing the starter, try to turn the engine by hand turning the flywheel, move it back and forth incase there is somthing trapped between the flywheel, if you cannot turn the engine this way, then somthing bad has happened inside the engine, it will now require a strip down to find out exactley what has happened

How do I replace a pull cord for pm 605 mcculloch chainsaw?


First remove the pull starter housing.
The next part is tricky. You'll have to release and unwind the spring that rewinds the pull starter cord. Remember how you do this because after replacing the cord, you'll have to rewind the cord and spring before inserting it back in the housing.
re-attach the pull cord housing to the chain saw.
Hope this helps.

U tube chainsaw pull cord wont pull start


Some saws with autotmatic oiling will leak bar oil into the cylinder and cause this. Pull out the spark plug and hold the saw so the oil runs out of the spark plug hole. Pull the starter cord till no more oil sprays out of the hole.Clean the oil off the plug and start your saw. It will smoke more than normal till the extra oil is burned out.

Saw starter pulling too hard to start.


Check piston rings. Sounds like you have a seized engine.

How to start a Husqvarna 445?


Set choke to full on. To do this depress throttle all the way down and set choke lever to on. Pull starter rapidly until saw fires . Once it has fired set to start and pull starter cord until it starts. If it doesn't start in ten - twelve pulls,reset choke for two or three pulls,then switch back to start. Pull starter cord until it starts. When it starts it wii be at full R.P.Ms. Let run for twenty to thirty seconds. then move switch to run. Hope his helps, Thanks

Chainsaw jammed


Remove the starter assembly from the side of the engine
and inspect the cord path--look for kinks in the cord or maybe it got wound on the spool incorrectly. It should be possible to pull it through while off of the engine. Good luck!

How to replace pull start cord on ms 192 stihl chainsaw


Not that bad. Remove the screws from the starter. Very gently lift it off. Now you will see a grove in the pulley where the starter cord is wound. Fish the cord in from the outside, get it in this grove, wind it a few times in the direction of pulling. Now unwind it to its end. Never remove the screw in the center! Install the new cord, wind it up about 4 turns, poke it out, clamp or tie it from drawing back in, install the pull handle!
By the way, Chainsaws are one of the most deadly of all home tools!

The pull cord has come off the spindle, how do I get it back on properly or install a new one and reset the spring tension


Remove the starter cover, rewind or wind a new cord onto the spool. Turn the spool about 2 turns against the spring, thread the pull cord through the starter cover and reinstall the pull handle.
