Poulan.com Look your saw over carefully and maybe you'll find a model number that matches one of these.

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If you're lucky you can pull the cord out enough for a pretension then slightly raise and add the withdrawn cord to the spool.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.

Poulan lawn mower cord won't retract


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.

Poulan Pro PP5020AV pull cord won't retract


You need to wind the spring back in a coil at a time, it is not easy if you have never done one, order a new spring, this will come pre wound in a cassette and is an easy fit.

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)

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.

I hope this was helpful

Poulan model p 3314 33cc chainsaw recoil jams up, I have taken it apart, and the pulley seems to be side loaded the screw that holds the pulley is crooked.


I recommend you contact Poulan 1-877-500-7499, there may be a free replacement kit available. If you call please have your saw at your side before dialing.
An IPL for your saw can be found here:
Poulan.com
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/POULAN-WEED-EATER/75.59.html (P3314 Gas Saw)
There are 2 different types "Spring Assist Pulley System" and "Standard Pulley System". Exercise care when you order. HTH

I have a 18 in poulan wildthing chainsaw p4018wm the pull rope was jamed so i took it apart and wound it back but a small black spring fell out gave no idea were it goes i need a dirgram


What you have is the spring assist starter. This is a new style starter that does not engage with the flywheel in a direct basis as starters have don for the past 50 years. What happens is that you have two springs. One to recoil the rope and one to store energy to release to the flywheel in a sudden burst. If you do not like this type starter you should be able to buy the old style and replace it. Most of the parts list I have seen still show the old style starter. Check with a full service dealer in your area if you have one. If you can not find one in your area contact southern supply company at 205-833-2525 or email them at southern.supply@mindspring.com and I feel sure Jason or someone there can help you.

It looks like a design flaw because I figured out how to get the recoil assembly back together but
it failed again, twice. I can't remember what the warranty term was.
