The starter pawls are held on with small springs. If the springs are broken or installed incorrectly, this can happen. I would suggest replacing the springs and maybe the pawls. Check the recoil assembly to make sure the issue is not with the recoil assembly.

SOURCE: my 455 rancher won't maintain power. I have

If you have been running ethnol mix in your saw there is a good chance that your fuel vent line is plugged. Loosen your fuel cap and start saw on its side and see if it runs. If it does you will have to clean your fuel vent.

SOURCE: 455 rancher chainsaw does not pump oil to the chain

If you look under the machine by the chain you'll see a flat head screw (next to the sprocket) which controls the bar and chain oil flow . Try to turn the screw and check if there's any oil flow to the chain . If not you will need to replace the oil pump (part # 537 10 55-02 which will cost you about $35.00) Hope this help

SOURCE: magneto to flywheel gap for Husqvarna 455 Chain Saw

Ignition module gap
Place a business or index card between the fly wheel and coil, rotate until the magnetic attraction pulls everything tight together. Tighten the coil screws, rotate the flywheel until the attraction eases and remove the card. Ensure nothing contacts when flywheel is rotated.

SOURCE: turning up the bar oil?

An “OM, 455e Rancher, 455 Rancher, 460 Rancher, 2009-09, EN, FR, ES” Follows (may not be your saw):
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/HOUS/HOUS2009/HOUS2009_1151382-49.pdf
An excerpt from page 38 of the above OM follows (forcing it may render it inoperative):
Adjustment of the oil pump
Adjustments are made by turning the screw using a screwdriver or combination spanner.
The machine is supplied from the factory with the screw set to position 2.
Turning the screw clockwise will reduce the oil flow and turning the screw anti-clockwise will increase the oil flow.
Recommended settings:
• Bar 13"-15": Position 1 (full CW)
• Bar 15"-18": Position 2 (center)
• Bar 18"-20": Position (full CCW)
These recommendations apply to Husqvarna’s chain oil, for other chain oils increase the oil flow by one step.
WARNING! The engine must be stopped when making adjustments.

Hard to pull starter rope


I am suspecting you may have some issues inside the cylinder. If it gets easier when warm / hot. You may have a stuck ring or a ring almost stuck.
Is it hard to pull with the sparkplug removed?
Pull the muffler and with a soft wooden item (chopstick works well) push on the ring, does it move freely or is it solid?

Starter rope grabs at times. why?


try using the de-compression button when starting, will do the same as removing the spark plug but without removing the spark plug.

Failing that, remove the starter cover and check starter cord for daage or signs of snagging.

Pull throttle not working


remove the starter assembly and check to see if it is working properly. If it is then try turning the flywheel by hand and see what you get but my guess is you broke the starter pawls that engage the flywheel

Pull cord for starter is not catching?


There are starter pawls that catch the flywheel when the rope is pulled. They are plastic. You will need to disassemble the unit and remove the starter assembly to inspect the pawls.

When pulling rope it clicks


This is a problem with either the starter pulley ( rope pulley) if the corners are worn it will not engage with the pawls, or the pawl/pawls them selves have worn

Black arms in clutch dont allways come out and catch when rope pulled. Chainsaw rope pulls out without catching and turning over to start. What should i do?


Most Stihl starters that i have seen rely on the r clip securing the pulley on being a tight fit on the shaft, this creates a friction, as the pulley turns the clip trys to stay still and in turn pushes the pawls out, remove the clip and squash it close together to create a better fit on the shaft

Start up rope is lock will not crank de motor disassemble th rope mount ders nothing wrong with the rope gaget but the wheel on the side of the motor will not turn


Remove the spark plug and see if the flywheel will turn. If it does, then there is excess fuel in the combustion chamber--install the starter and pull it through vigorously several times to expel the raw fuel. If it does not turn, then suspect that the engine has seized due to insufficient or no oil premixed into the fuel. Remove the muffler and inspect the piston, ring(s), and cylinder for excess scoring. The repair is to replace these parts--an expensive process even if you perform the labor. Any existing warranty will not cover this problem. Hope this helps!

Won't crank, thing next to spark plug keeps popping up


Jerry is correct the compression release is ajdacent to the spark plug. If it pops the saw fired and the release closed (what it is supposed to do).
Read page 22 here:
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/HOUS/HOUS2009/HOUS2009_1151382-49.pdf
Excerpt follows: "Pull the starter handle (D): Pull the starter handle with your right hand and pull out the starter cord slowly until you feel a resistance (as the starter pawls engage) then pull firmly and rapidly until the engine fires. Push in the choke control as soon as the engine fires which can be heard through a "puff" sound. Keep on pulling the cord powerfully until the engine starts."
Continuing with the choke closed causes flooding. Please read the "Warm Engine" too it is slightly different.

You may need to use a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins. You don’t have to bend up the electrode.

These flood easily and are very difficult to start once that has occurred.
Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls)
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle - Don’t pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Hope this helps

Pull cord on chain saw will not retract.


Most of the rancher models are easy to look at. Take the four screws off that hold the starter cover on.When off have a look to see if the pulley is ok or one of the starter dogs(pawls) is jamed . If dogs ok take the screw out of the centre of pulley and remove it ,check for spring tension. if there is just be carful to leave sring in housing. look at spring if broken or out of shape renew it and rope.check for cracks in pulley. When renewing spring and rope get correct rope length and diameter. don't over tension new spring. hop this helps
