The pawl that reaches out and grabs the starter cup could be worn or have jumped out with wear. This is why when you pull on the starter it does not catch. When you take off the starter housing you should also check for wear on the pulley that holds the rope. If you still have your instruction manual it will describe a starter repair to get you on your way. You should be able to find an instruction manual on the StihlUSA website.
You can also use the Dealer locator to take the unit to a repair shop close to you, or to get parts for your unit. A link to that function is HERE

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..

The pull cord hasn't snapped it just wont recoil! is this an easy fix?


Sounds like the starter spring has broken, remove the three torx screws securing the starter and remove the starter, prise off the r clip holding the pulley and pawl on ( note the orientation of the clip on the pawl ) remove the pulley, the spring is in a cassette, remove the cassette and replace with new, refit the pulley, make sure the pulley locates properly into the hook on the starter spring, re fit the pawl and r clip, enter the cord into the cut a way in the side of the pulley, now wind the pueey around to tention the spring.

Hi, my Stihl ts 400 blade runs at idle.I have tried adjusting the idle down as far as I can but it still turns.


seems that ur clutch is sticking.take recoil caseing of and check by turning blade by hand,if you feel the engine turning over,then your clutch drum is sticking,be sure to remove ur spark plug cap! it will be the bearing at the rear of the clutch drum,maybe a little oil and a few turns will help it free itself.hope this helps.

I have having problem with my Hysqvaran 125L with the pull cord. When i pulls cord, it not catching the trans and it sound like the spring is not catching?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

It sounds like the starter cup has failed / broken. See this link: (Page 3 item 14.)
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/HIPL/HIPL2008/HIPL2008_5450143-15.pdf

However... the pawls on the starter pulley (item 28 above) may have broken.

There is a whole kit for repairing the starter recoil: PN 545180844
That can be found here:
http://cgi.ebay.com/HUSQVARNA-RECOIL-STARTER-KIT-124L-125L-128L-545180844-/150485511147

Your need to remove the starter recoil assy and check for damage. It will be obvious. Just remove the mounting screws and lift it off. It is not difficult. Use the first link page 3 to identify the parts you may need once you do the visual inspection with the recoil removed.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Trying to put recoil back together, how does spring go


There is a groove where the entire plastic case around the spring will go. It will only fit one way. Be careful when installing the spring, if it gets lopsided. IE. Part of the spring sits on the groove for the spring housing and the rest of the spring housing fits into the the groove, the spring will come out of the spring housing.

Replace pull cord


i roadworks63. Pull off the right side cover to expose the recoil, remove the rest of the rope. Now rewindthe pully c.c.wise until it stops then release it just enoughto align the rope holes,use a C clamp to hold the pully from unwinding. Insert the rope enough to tie a knotHeat the knot to make it hard,now slowly let the pully re..turn or unwind tieon the handle. You are home free.
