How do i replace pull string on craftsman 20/14 chainsaw


Remove the cover containing the cord rewind mechanism, untie the cord's knot in the center of the mechanism and remove the old cord by unwinding it from the pulley. Thread the new cord through the hole it goes through on the outside and wind the recoil mechanism so that it has sufficient spring tension to rewind the new cord. Use something appropriate to immobilize the pulley while you thread the cord through the center and tie the knot. Slowly allow the pulley to retract and wind the new cord onto it. Replace the cover. As an aside, sometimes when the cord breaks and the pulley snaps back quickly, the rewind spring can break.

My Craftsman lawn mower starter cord doesn't retract after mower starts.


I have had this situation before on a lawnmower. I didn't have a craftsman, but is probably the same issue. Basically, the spring that recoils the cord back in either broke or came unwound. When the mower is not running, the cogs on the pull chord keeps the cord from coming out. When the mower is running, the spring is not wound enough to hold the chord in and thus releases or doesn't hold it in.
Try pulling the pull chord assembly off and rewind the spring.

The pull rope will not rewind. How do I reset it?


The cord should be removed from the spool entirely, then wind the spool spring CCW for a number of turns making sure the spool can be turned for about 6 turns more (during start). Wedge the spool so that it can't unwind the spring again. If the old cord was about worn out, replace it with fresh. Melt the cord end somewhat so that the knot won't pull out, then tie an overhand knot in the cord end. Feed it into the inner retainer on the spool, then thread the cord around the spool 5 or 6 times in a CCW direction. Once wound, feed the loose end out of the cord port, slide the pull handle on, melt the cord end, and tie an overhand knot on it. Stuff the knot into the handle and release the wedge from the spool so that spring tension pulls the cord tight. Pull the cord out several times to make sure nothing interferes with cord and mechanism, then install on the saw and check the start operation. The spring should never bind-up when the cord is fully extended. Hope this helps!

Starter rewinder repair How do I rewind the starter rewinder?


If both ends of the spring are still attached, then turn the spool CCW (remove the cord first) until it is fairly wound, but still be able to turn 5 or 6 turns more to allow for the movement required when starting. The spring must not bind-up during starting. Wedge the spool so that it can't unwind again, and fix the cord to the spool inner attachment (melt the cord end before tying the overhand knot). Thread the cord CCW until the spool is nearly full, then feed it out of the cord port and slide the handle on. Melt the end and tie an overhand knot to retain the pull handle. Release the spool wedge and try the cord action--it should come out about 3' or so without binding and return smoothly. Remount the entire assembly and make sure the engine is being properly turned. Hope this helps!

Pull cord broke on my craftsman gas push edger. I replaced cord but when I pull cord..It wont rewind but I can hear it trying to start


It sounds like you did not properly rewind the spring that is behind the spool that the cord would around, that spring is what rewinds the cord after pulling the cord.

Pull cord stuck in the out position


this can be caused by sevral things inside the pull cord hub assembly. examples: Dirty inside & needs taken apart & cleaned. something logged inside, plastic spool tabs broke, spring/s broke, levers broke or any of these items could just be to worn. replacement parts should be available.

Craftsman gas chainsaw 18'' model 358 pull start repair


Recoil Spring Rewind
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 for it 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. HTH

Pulled starting cord out and won't rewind on Craftsman chainsaw.


Sounds like the spring may be bound up or bad.. You can get new spring coils for them. I would check first just to make sure its not bound up. Usually 3 to 4 screws holding on a side panel. Be careful when removing as spring may have come dislodged.. If it looks bad go to local tool rental store or local sears to get new part.. Either should have it..

Need to rewind craftsman chainsaw pull rope.


I have tried to do this many times and have yet to suceed, believe me it's not worth the fustration and the extra days in hell you will spend from cussing.

Take to a repair shop, they can do it quickly and cheaply when you consider how difficult this is for the ordinary person. (me)
