Starter handle will not catch


It's possible that a few things are happening. Some recoil set us have the dog ears, the little plastic piece that flaps out and catches the flywheel bell. Have you taken that cover off the unit yet? If not, take it off, pull the cord and see if either the dog ear is broke or something else is...this is an easy fix, recoil assys are not expensive at all... it all starts with that pull cord assy. Should be 4 screws that hold on the side panel to the saw, just don't take the recoil pulley out or you may find the spring will pop free from where it sits..

Cord will not recoil


Sounds like the starter return spring may have broken, remove the starter, remove the centre fixing screw for the pulley, be aware when removing the pulley there is a coil spring behind, alaways wear safety glasses, once removed you can check the condition of the return spring, new springs come in a keeper, so they are fairly easy to fit

The cord came out of my Pouland Pro model PPb430Vs leaf blower. I took the unit apart put the cord back on the spool, put unit back together. Pulled the cord but the cord did not re-coil?? What...


I will give you instructions for fixing the recoil unit on a trimmer. The blower instructions are the same, just the configuration is different. The key is to maybe have someone help you.
OK...with the starter/recoil unit OFF the machine, with no rope in it, and no tension on it.....grasp the little nylon hub and turn it (clockwise is I recall) round and round 6-7 times until you feel the recoil spring get nice and tight...DO NOT LET GO OF IT!...hold it in place and then JAM the starter/recoil unit in place (still tight) inside it's housing by either clamping it with a tool like vise grips or by sticking a screwdriver thru it and thru the vents in the cover. If you have ANOTHER person to help you...one of you hold it in place....and make sure it is lined up to where you can NOW insert the new lenth of pull rope thru the housing hole and into the hole in the pulley.. Always use new rope....Feed the end thru the hole in the recoil unit and tie it off, by wrapping it around itself outside the nylon hub and then screw the little self-tapping set screw back in holding the rope down. OK...then feed the opposite end into the hole in the front engine cover and attatch the T pull handle....Now mind you, you are still jammming or holding the recoil in place against the spring!...Now, unclamp it or unjam it and slowly let the recoil pull the NEW rope you just installed back onto the pulley. Make sure it is fastened well on top of the pulley around the nylon hub and also fastened well onto the T pull handle. That is it. Then reconnect your wires, put your throttle cable back thru the engine cover and reinstall the Torx screws in the cover...and you are done

My rope wont recoil on my Bolen BL 160 I have


the round rotating part with the nose is the clutch drum, it has a small torx screw down inside the center retaining it to the crankshaft, remove this screw, block the cylinder and remove the clutch plates. remove the engine from the housing and turn it around to access the spool and a metal plate that has a few screws holding it in. there is a push nut that looks like a serrated ring holding the spool on the housing, sometimes it can be carefully removed but usually it fails and has to be replaced, it presses back into place upon reassembly. Do not remove this ring if you are not replacing the spring or pulley!!! Simply install your new rope and using the spokes on the pulley gather some slack in the rope and wind up the pulley about 5 turns in the direction it rotates as if you were pulling the rope, while holding the tension on the pulley, extend the rope fully and carefully release the pulley while holding the tension with the rope by its handle it should retract normally

Recoil spring on homelite chain saw doesn't retract pull rope


Easy suggestion would be to get new spring coil. Is it older saw? Have had to change mine on poulan saws before.

Recoil not recoilling good


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.
