Hey fark
This is easy. Take off rope housing (four screws). Once off, pull the string out 3/4 of the way. Once out, tie string around spindle one extra time ( real easy just wrap string once more around winding spool ). This oughta make string snap back after pulls.

SOURCE: broken recoil spring

A new spring comes wound tight enough to be dropped into place in the starter housing (Easiest).

I invert and secure the housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection, both hands and no women around work area!). I'm right handed so i tension the spring enough to insert it inside the previous coil while holding what has already been installed with my left about 180° from my right hand. The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely inserted. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. It will require about 2 turns of pretension to retract properly.
If you're lucky you can pull the cord out enough for a pretension then slightly raise and add the withdrawn cord to the spool.

Both methods require about 2 turns of pretension to rewind the cord when pulled.

I need a recoil cover for a ms461 also a parts diagram for putting it back together


Hi there,

The two links i attached contain the recoil cover you need and the parts diagram.

The parts diagram is in the instruction manual that I linked.

The recoil cover I linked is not for the exact same machine but it should work fine with the MS461.

Good luck & have a nice day!

Stihl chainsaw MS460 Can't pull recoil


It could be the recoil is stuck. a couple of things to check. Take the clutch and chain cover off, remove the spark plug and manually try to turn the motor over by turning the clutch. If the motor/engine is not seized, take the pull start/recoil cover off and pull on the cord to see if it will work and that the cord returns back into the recoil automatically. Don't take the nut off the inside of recoil holding the cord spool on. If the engine is not seized, and the recoil now goes in and out by pulling the start cord handle reassemble and pull over the engine a few times. This a good time to check the spark plug is working, now put the spark plug back in and start the engine. It's a good time to clean the air filter as well while the chainsaw is mostly apart and clean all oily sawdust off the chainsaw in the crevices etc..

Remove nuts mounting recoil assembly. Observe how rope is wound around pulley. Find end knot in pulley wheel. Cutoff end knot and remove old rope. Find end knot in handle, use needle nose pliers pull thru old rope. Rope is sold by the foot at mower repair shops. Replace rope as observed before removal. Cut to size after wrapping recoil assembly and attaching thru handle at proper length if at recoil assembly or on mower handle. Ensure good knot in hole of recoil assembly and handle.

Have champion 3500 watt generator recoil pull cord wont recoil HELP


need to take the recoil off the engine and check for a broken recoil spring, depending on the engine if it is a honda, they sell a replacement recoil unit, anything else and you will have to get creative....try tapping on the recoil with your palm and see if it trys to rewind, if no resistance or movement when bumping is a good indicator of a broken recoil spring....

I had to replace the recoil assembly on Electrolux 2000. Recoil works fine by it-self but when vacuum is reassembled the recol does not recoil. Why?


You have assembled it incorrectly and the recoil unit is sticking against something preventing the recoil. It is still tensioned ? Have you checked?

Snow blower recoil rope broke tied back up and now will not recoil


Unless the recoil spring is broken, then you may have neglected to pre-load the recoil spring. With the recoil unit off of the motor, wind the rope fully around the pulley. Then, while keeping the rope fully wound, turn the pulley about 5 times around in the direction that would push the hope out through the hole. At this point the recoil spring will be trying to spin. Without losing that tension, push the end of the rope out through the hole, thereby putting a bit more tension on the recoil spring. Tie on the handle. Now, when you let go of the rope, the spring should hold the handle snug against the hole. An alternative method is to use a rope about 2 to 3 feet longer than the original. Wind it fully around the spool and put the end of it through the hole. Now pull the extra length through the hole until the tension is sufficient. Cut off the extra length and tie on the handle.
good luck, Al K

Pulley cord wont go down unable to start on gas trimmer


Your cord wont recoil?

You should remove the recoil cover and see if you can rewind the rope manually.

It isnt too hard and will let you know immediately if you need to replace the recoil.

Just the recoil unit by loosening the three or four bolts and lift it off the trimmer. Turn it over and look at the recoil spool. There should be a notch in it. This is were you catch a bit of the starter rope and start turning it in the direction of normal rotation. Normal rotation will put tension on the recoil spring.
When you put 4-6 turns into it just let it recoil and see if it pulls all the rope back in. That's it. If the cord didnt recoil something inside the recoil has broken and you need to get the unit serviced or replaced. Most of the time the cost of repairing something like this is prohibitive. Its a better idea to just replace the whole unit.

Good luck and be careful!
