How do I fix my chainsaw pull string?

When I go to start my chainsaw, the starter chord always gets stuck fully extended. How do I fix it so that it retracts?

Aha - i worked this out the other day.

You wind up as much as poss, the pull out some slack and wrap it round the wheel and slip it in via the little groove that should be there on the wheel.

You should get what I mean when it's in front of you.

I think its your spring inside the starter cover , the spring is probably broken or out of its hook to maintain pressure ,

but if the rope tend to rewind slowly, may be some cleaning is just your problem or tensionning the pulley by turning over to stress the spring one turn at a time !!!!
