Question about Tanaka TCS33EB/14 32 cc Gas Powered 14-in Rear Handle Chain Saw
I Pulled the cord to start the saw. And the cord did not retract back. Took it apart. Put it back together. Worked for about 5 pulls and did the same thing.
If you replace the recoil assembly with a new one or repair this one again, try to adjust the distance you pull the recoil to just short of the end of the pull cord. You could be pulling so hard and jamming it with each jerk of the cord. Slowly pull the cord to the end of its travel and make a mental note of that distance....then force yourself to stop your movement just shy of that spot when you are starting the saw. I think you may have a bit better luck. I have a neighbor that does the same thing and I fix his at least a dozen times per season.

Replace teh recoil section as there is a problem with the spring or the pulley section holding the cord.

New or used unit? If new can you return it ? If not you will need to take the recoil assembly off the engine and rewind the spring. Check inside the recoil assembly to see if the spring is broken or just popped out of place on either end. If it is broken your done. You will need to find a Poulan dealer to get a new spring. If new take it to a Poulan dealer for warrenty replacement. If you want to try to rewind the spring look to see where one end of the spring fits into the housing and the other into the spool. On the edge of the puley should be a notch. Place the rope in the notch and turn the pulley it in the direction needed to wind the spring about 4 or 5 turns. If it now pulls all the rope in you are done.If not put the rope back in the notch and wind the spring tighter till the rope is all pulled in.
