Most of the rancher models are easy to look at. Take the four screws off that hold the starter cover on.When off have a look to see if the pulley is ok or one of the starter dogs(pawls) is jamed . If dogs ok take the screw out of the centre of pulley and remove it ,check for spring tension. if there is just be carful to leave sring in housing. look at spring if broken or out of shape renew it and rope.check for cracks in pulley. When renewing spring and rope get correct rope length and diameter. don't over tension new spring. hop this helps

SOURCE: 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.

Cord rewind assembly


If you place the chain saw on a work bench with the bar and chain pointing at you. We will call the side with the chain and bar the left and the side where you gas and oil the saw the right side. Now on the right side just behind the oil filler cap is the starter rope and assembly . There are four screws that holds this assembly to the saw. Remove these 4 screws while carefully watching and lifting this assembly from the saw. turn the assembly over and if you can see and grab the old starter rope . Grasp it and pull out on the rope a few times so you can see how it works, play with it a bit, so that when you replace the old rope with a new you will be familiar with the action.You can find starter rope at local chain saw or hardware stores, estimate the length you will need. Re-thread the new rope in opposite direction that you saw the old rope function being careful to duplicate the knot at the end of the rope which will be inside the assembly, threaded in as you saw the old one come out. So look carefully. Play with it a bit. Familiarize yourself with how the two holes line up and thread through the spool and the knot is tied. Now make sure the end of the rope coming out of the assembly has the recoil action. Tie on the handle being sure to take only enough re-coil that there is no slack in the rope and handle end. Replace the assembly and check the action. Have fun! Alvin

Installing a spring in an MS240 Stihl chain saw


I have not worked on you type saw. I have put new starter springs in other saws. One end of the spring fits into the housing and the other in the pulley. Once you have that done there should be a notch in the pulley that you put the rope into that will allow the spring to be wound up without taking up the rope. It is a trial error problem now. If the spring is wound too tight you will not get full rope travel. If it is too loose tilt will not pull the rope in fully.

The pull cord will not retract back into the saw. When I tried to start the saw, I pulled the cord and now it did not retract back. It is all the way out and will not recoil.


When I have had this happen it means that you need to manually rewind the cord and put some additional tension on the take up pulley. To do this you'll have to open the saw up and untie the handle. Turn the pulley like one turn, put the rope back through the hole and tie the handle back on. All this is done while maintaining tension on the rope.

Clutch Drum Removal


Special tools may be require and can usually be purchased form the maker of your saw.

Often the spark plug is removed, the piston positioned to just before TDC, and a length of starter cord or rope fed into the cylinder. This allows the the clutch to be be removed without damaging the piston or cylinder.
1. Don't put all of starter cord or rope into cylinder.
2. Ensure the piston is above the exhaust port.
3. The threads are often left handed.

Rewind don't work


as you put the side with the recoil starter back on the saw, ensure the rewind pack isn't binding. before tightening the screws, pull the rope out a few inches and let it rewind. if it won't, something is binding. keep moving the side panel till it will rewind. I have done this before myself. get it all put back together and it won't work.....
