If someone put the wrong sparkplug in the saw it would do the same thing. The plug threads could be too long and when the piston comes up it hits the plug and stopps. If the electrodes on the new plug extend farther out of the sparkplug the piston will come up and hit it and the engine will not turn.

Homelite chain saw XL925 cord pull too hard but if you remove the spark plug then it pulls OK.


I have a Homelite XL and was having problems with rope pulling from difficult to unable to pull rope while trying to start saw. I removed the muffler, squirted some WD40 through the exhaust port ABOVE and BELOW the piston compression ring. Then pulled the rope about 20 times without spark plug to fully lubricate the piston and cylinder. Left it till the next day, pulled it through about 20 more times, put the spark plug back in,and it works well now. Guess it was just gummed-up a little and the lubrication freed it.

I have a wild thing. the rope pull starter is very hard to pull. when i take the spark plug out it is easy to pull. the saw was not used for about 4 years until yesterday. it ran for about 45 minutes fine....


one piston ring has expanded now having no or a very fine gap increasing the compression ratio causing this to happen. When the spark plug is removed it is very easy to pull on the cord in any means. A inspection is due of this engine or a new chain saw is needed

This saw looks new but it been in storage for years and the rope is realy tight it beraly turns once and its hard what can i do to get it to start its a mac 110 z62.1 class 1c


If your having problem turning the engine through ... remvoe the spark plug and use regular oil in the cylinder. Tilt it so that the plug hole is straight up and pour about 1 ounce of oil in the cylinder. Then pull it through with the starting rope. I would do this several times until the cylinder appear to free up. You have corrosion on the cylinder walls. The oil will help the piston and rings scrape off that corrosion. After the oil then use mixed gas in the spark plug hole and pull it through again. Make sure the gas is purged then attempt a regular start. If it has been is storage for a long time you may have to change the diaphram in the carb as they dry out and get holes in them / crack after being cycled with new fuel. Good Luck.

My stihl 041 saw very old made in germany farmboss but very low hours on it. will pop and smoke a little but not start. When I pull on the starter and it almost starts it gets very hard to pull on rope -...


Answer to 2 year old question about hard starting saw.There is a seal that goes bad and leaks chain oil into the crankcase.This will make it very hard or impossible to pull the starter rope. To start the saw,pull the spark plug, stand the saw on it's end so the bar is pointed up and pull the rope 10-15 times. Replace the spark plug and start.It will smoke for a while.To stop this from happening, always store the saw with the bar pointed straight down.

Homelite model No. 10609. 1H2100076 My pull rope won't recoil.


Not that i know of, take the cover off and rewind by hand, use greese on the coil and pull the rope in and out, if the rope doesnt recoil you are going to need a new pull start assembly

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.

Chainsaw won't start. Can't pull starting cord out


Try replacing the muffler. The baffle or something inside the muffler may be loose and when compression is put on the cylinder from pulling starter rope to crank over engine it will cause baffle to move over and seal off muffler leaving nowhere for compression to go. When the sparkplug is removed this allows an outlet for compression when starter rope is pulled. Hope this helps

Chainsaw won't start. Can't pull starting cord out


Thats a little strange.
Only thing that comes to mind is someone else had access to it and swapped out a plug that is too long for your short plug, Check plug type in owners manual.
maybe on sunday their 4 wheeler wouldn't start and this was quick fix.
Take off the chain cover or starter and see if it turns back and forth almost one full turn with a sudden stop at both ends of rotation. (Hitting plug)
if this is ok get back to me.
