McCulloch PM 610 won’t start

Hi All,

I have a PM610, and it was doing a great job for the last years. I really love this model. Last week it didn’t want to start. I figured out based on manual that it maybe the starter that has a problem with the recoil. I fixed that, but nothing improved- it pop twice and that’s it. Please help


Hi Matt,

i would advice checking for a missing or partially sheared flywheel key. That was the case with my old chainsaw, but I hearth that such problems link usually to carburation on the saws. Did you try pulling on rope with choke on and after it popped did you push choke back in and try it? That may be the best solution
