When you pull it to start it it winds a spring inside the starter assembly. It acts like a shock absorber. Works great until that plastic inside the assembly decides to fail. The saw has only about 10 hours or so on it. I was only trying to get Stabil into the carburetor and was giving it a little gas when it all of a sudden quit. Torn into the start assembly only to find broken plastic parts. Sears no longer sells the starter assembly nor anyone else that I can find. Junk and I am done with Sears. If you sell it be sure to support it.
