Question about Husqvarna 41 141 41 136 36 Recoil Pull Start
Cord will not pull out to start the motor. It appears jammed.
The pull cord or rope works on a tight spring just under the cover that the rope is in. Usually three to four small bolts on the edge of the cover to remove to repair/replace either the spring or the rope. First I would try to turn the motor manually with your hand on the flywheel, it should move around either direction freely with no effort. If it does not the motor itself maybe stuck not the rope. Then you have a seized engine and a different problem to deal with.

It sounds like it's sorta gummed up from old gas residue. You could spray carb cleaner in the spark plug hole and into the carb while holding the throttle open and pull the cord several times and then follow that with penetrating oil to re-lubricate the engine. You're probably going to have problems with the carb also. I would have it rebuilt or, better yet, purchase a new one

Jan 1990 Special 50 IPL (example may not be you saw)
Operators Manual (example may not be you saw)
Unfortunately there is no phone number. I suggest you stop by your local Husky dealer (ask for a repair estimate while there $10-20 applied toward an actual repair probably $60-80), they should be willing to provide you with the correct links or a phone number where you can get them.
It is old (88 or 98) enough I doubt there is a decompression valve or purge bulb.
Please tell me you are not trying to drop start this. Read and follow the procedure "STARTING THE CHAIN SAW" from the manual. If you want to attempt a repair I think this is too deep for this forum. Please try here:

This is a collection of chainsaw enthusiasts with a few professional chainsaw mechanics thrown in. Here you can post a question and get an immediate response. You can have the chainsaw at your elbow and your helper a click away. If you make a good connection and are willing you may be able converse by phone. We can't do that yet.
I would like you to do this first:
Was this saw perhaps operated in a lean condition (metal transfer from the piston to cylinder wall)?
This repair will most likely exceed replacement cost. Use your best judgment HTH
Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – for use with IPL
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week

The cord ends need to be melted somewhat, then an overhand knot tied to retain both ends. If the cord is breaking along it's length, the cord may not be heavy enough--check with a local saw service shop for the correct cord and buy about 1-meter of length to make sure that you are not reaching the end of the cord when pulling on it. Make sure there is nothing that the cord passes over to damage the cord causing failure. Hope this helps!

We have a Husky 435 that does the same thing. Found that the engine is trying to fire after first pull. Try setting the choke at 1/2 after first pull, but don't bump the throttle which will release 'fast idle'. This process seems to limit the 'kick back' effect. It also helps if you have a strong arm. Good luck!
