Question about Troy-Bilt Mtd Troy Bilt TB4218CC 42cc 2 cycle Gas Engine 18" Chain Saw
Sounds like the rope is caught between the rope pulley and the housing that covers the recoil spring and pulley.You will have to remove the housing that has the recoil spring in it.Be careful of the rope at this point because if this is the problem the rope will want to rewind as soon as the housing releases the rope.You should be able to inspect the rope for frayed spots.If you need to replace the rope,pull it out till you see the spring and clamp it with a pair of needle nose vice grips. If this is anything else in this area it will be a part replacement. Well hope this helps.
I always add this for your information. If this is not the solution that you are looking for please re post because when we pick a question to answer FixYa takes it out of the questions.
