Fs44 whipper snipper recoil spring unwound, cord jammed and when tried to release recoil spring released


Its an easy opperation to undertake if you know how. Take note of where everything goes during the stripping down of the recoil assembly. Use eye protection when trying to recoil the rewind spring, they have a tendency to jump back out at you while coiling them back in. easiest way is to start by putting the hooked end into the plastic housing and work your way inwards coiling it back in. Then place the starter cord roller in on top, adding the one or two black sliders, the washer and the spring clip to hold it all in place.

Pull cord will not rewind


  • 1

    Turn the Homelite chainsaw so that the bar and chain are laying flat and the starter cover is facing up. Loosen the four starter cover screws by unscrewing them counterclockwise with the screwdriver.

  • 2

    Take the starter cover off of the engine. Turn the starter cover over to work on the pull starter. Pull the rope out about 6 to 8 inches.

  • 3

    Twist a loop into the end of the rope. Insert the intersection of the two ropes into the notch on the upper flange of the pulley. Rotate the loop back and forth until you notice the recoil spring has disengaged. Unwind the rope from the pulley. Cut off any old rope if you need to replace it with a new rope.

  • 4

    Unscrew the screw holding the pulley to the starter cover using the screwdriver. Take the pulley off the starter cover. Turn the pulley over and remove the recoil spring cassette from inside the pulley.

  • 5

    Inspect the spring inside the cassette to see if it is damaged or overstretched. Replace the recoil spring cassette if it is broken. Lubricate the post on the starter cover using about a dime-sized amount of engine grease.

  • 6

    Put the recoil spring cassette back into the pulley. Set the pulley onto the starter cover and tighten the screw down with the screwdriver. Wind the starter rope back around the pulley in a clockwise direction.

  • 7

    Leave about 6 to 8 inches of rope unwound. Form another loop at the end and insert the loop into the notch on the pulley. Rotate the loop back and forth until you notice the tension is set on the recoil spring.

  • 8

    Remove the loop and place the starter cover back over the engine. Pull the rope out 6 inches and tighten the starter cover's screws using the screwdriver. Release the rope and it should automatically retract


  • hope this helps

    The spring is all the way unwound and pull rope wouldn't rewind


    It sounds like the recoil assembly must be replaced.
    Email me for instructions if you want to replace it.

    How do you replace spring on a poulan chainsaw


    A Poulan "P4018WT Gas Saw Type 1" IPL follows (may not be your saw):
    http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/P4018WT-Gas-Saw-Type-1/75.P4018WT-Gas-Saw-Type-1.1.59.1.html
    If yours is not a "Type 1" it can be found here:
    Poulan.com
    http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/POULAN-WEED-EATER/75.59.html
    The dash number of your serial number is the type.

    If the spring is unwound:
    Recoil Spring Rewind
    I invert and secure the starter housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection and both hands). I am 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 rewound. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. The video explains how to tension the spring.

    Starter recoil spring reload, How?

The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely rewound. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. It will require about 2 turns of pretension for it to retract properly.

    If the starter cord needs a pretension, this works quite well.

    Cant remember how to put the spring back on the pull cord recoil


    This reply is based on the following assumptions:
    A Poulan PP2375LE (wildthing) Type 2
    The starter recoil spring is unwound.
    All components aer servicable

    Poulan 2375LE Type 2 IPL
    http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/2375LE-Gas-Saw-Type-2/75.2375LE-Gas-Saw-Type-2.1.59.1.html
    Starter components and reassembly order are illustrated on the "Handle, Chassis & Bar Assembly" detail.

    If the spring needs rewound this is how I do it, there are other methods.
    Recoil Spring Rewind
    I invert and secure the housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection, and both hands). I am 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.

    This illustrates proper pretension and rope installation:
    Smalleng.com (about 3.5 minutes long and worth watching the entire video)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRyy3MlsjVo

    If yours is not a Type 2 you can find the correct IPL here:
    Poulan.com
    http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/POULAN-WEED-EATER/75.59.html
    The dash number of your serial number is the type.

    WeedEater Edger PE550 Starter Rope will not recoil


    Order a new recoil spring from your suppier. It comes wound up. Remove the old part first usually four screws on the outside. Make sure the rope is fully wound then insert the new spring and reassamble. If it becomes unwound by mistake its a labourious job to rewind but can be done.
