A little more clarity for you Jefferson...
blue eyes touched on a very common situation, and as Ted did as well:
when oil is in cylinder, either seeped in due to age, or unit was tipped, etc, it will not compress. So pulling cord moves piston towards this built up oil in the cylinder against the head and will no longer move!
Remove the plug and pull cord...

  • Easier? Then this is Good, blue eyes commented. Continue pulling cord as this will blow out all unneeded residue/oil from cylinder. Reinsert plug.
  • Same? Sorry, bad motor. It has in most cases seized.

Hi Jefferson:
I'm thinking that this is a fairly common occurence. The motor will probably be 2 cycle without a compression release if it's the same as mine. Considering that they are a fairly small tool, they tend to need to benefit from being held down securely when being started, especially when cold. Once you get the hang of it, you can start them by "throwing" the unit away from yourself (don't let go of the handle) while holding onto the starter cord.

Pull rope on chainsaw is very hard to pull, but easy with sparkplug out. What could be the problem?


You are not strong enough to pull the starter when there is engine compression due to the plug in place.

Check to see if there is a compression release for starting.

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 hard to pull. It's not smooth and takes a lot of effort.


Make sure the brake is off and retest. If brake is off and still difficult to pull, remove the side cover, chain, bar and retest. If still not right (remove sparkplug), remove the muffler and make sure that the spark arrest screen is clean and verify that the cylinder and piston look clean and smooth by looking into port. You can clean the cylinder by spraying wd40 and pulling the rope untill it all comes back out. Verify that the rope pulls smoothly before you reinstall the spark plug. If all looks good, reinstall muffler and retest. If the compression is normal, it should be rather hard to pull thru the compression stroke. Reinstall bar and chain for final test.

Ryobi plt2543. was using it and was working fine then suddenly it stopped tried to started it again and couldnt because it had jammed and could not pull the cord out. what would be wrong?


first i would take sparkplug out and see if you can pull rope. if you can, it must have leaked fuel into the cyl. if you still cant pull rope, you need to take starter off and see if it is broke. if not broke motor must be locked up. i hope this helps.

Stihl backpack blower starter rope is pulling harder and harder. When it dose pull it starts right up.


See if your rope pulley is opening up and allowing rope to double over on itself.When this happens the rope will wedge in pulley causing it to pull hard.

VERY difficult to pull starter rope


Check that engine spins freely with sparkplug removed
Suspect build up of gum in bore causing high compression.
Cause probably use of "watercooled" 2 stroke oil (intended for outboard ). Not getting hot enough to burn off gum.

Chainsaw won't start. Can't pull starting cord out


Try replacing the muffler. The baffle or something inside the muffler may be loose and when compression is put on the cylinder from pulling starter rope to crank over engine it will cause baffle to move over and seal off muffler leaving nowhere for compression to go. When the sparkplug is removed this allows an outlet for compression when starter rope is pulled. Hope this helps

Chain oiler replacement


If it is Stihl 025 the chain oiler is on the bottom.First check if the worm gear(under the starter)is in good condition.Replace the starter(blocking the piston in the cilinder with a rope with many nods,that rope entering in the sparkplug hole).On the handle there are 4 screws on the right side (under 4 black plastic plugs,at the bottom 2 screws.)CUnlock them and take off the handle.At the bottom you can see the chain oiler( under the hose) the mark for right possition is there.Take off the oiler using a screw(lock clockwise into the oiler)and then pull it out.Clean with compressed air the oil hole.Put back together .Succes!
