Pull the cord cover off and check to see there is not to much slack in the cord when fully wound...if there is you can rewind the slack onto the spool...the spring may be broken and needs to be replaced

Poulan Pro PP5020AV pull cord won't retract


You need to wind the spring back in a coil at a time, it is not easy if you have never done one, order a new spring, this will come pre wound in a cassette and is an easy fit.

How to restring mower


Making the assumption that you are asking how to replace the pull cord on a recoil starter on a vertical power mower engine...??
You must remove the plastic cover in some cases, and the shroud over the top of the engine to gain access to the gizzards of the recoil starter.
That also means in most cases loosening and removing cylinder head bolts, and you MUST use a torque wrench to replace them to the proper tightness, so be prepared.
Once you have the shroud removed, on the underside will be a round reel that is retained by several bent over tabs. You have to straighten at least two of the tabs, and then you can remove the cord reel.
BE CAREFUL, as there is a flat spring inside that will jump out and possibly injure you.
You have to get the correct cord, string it through the handle in place of the old, cut it to the proper length, feed it back through the shroud, and wind it on the reel. Then you have to pre-tension the spring so that the cord will retract after you pull on it.
Once you have the cord routed and fastened to the reel, and captured on the pull handle, you can wind up the spring.
Unless you are VERY handy and have strong hands, I would not recommend you do the repair yourself. The spring must be tensioned, and held in place. It does not want to stay, and will jump out easily.
If you get it tensioned, the cord in place, then the reel must be put back into the shroud and the tabs bent back in place. Then the shroud has to be re-installed on the top of the engine, and the bolts tightened properly.tom

Installing new pull cord and it wont retract, what did I do wrong?


You have to wind up the spring before installing the cord. Look which way the spring goes, wind it up tight, back off enough to insert the cord through the hole in the outside housing, tie a knot inside the inner pulley. Slowly let the spring recoil while allowing the cord to go in. Cut the cord to the proper length, put the end thru the handle, knot it and attach the assembly back to the mower.

Rope needs rewound, got tangled up , had to remove the 4 nuts, now need to get in back on wound tight


I assume that you are speaking of a pull start mechanism.
I can not imagine how to put a put pull starter back on "wound tight". Your pulling on the cord tightens a spring which pulls the cord back in. They go back together with the cord fully wound onto the spool.
Usually, I only take these apart to replace the cord. Wind the new cord onto the spool without handle. Reassemble, then pull out on the cord a little when attaching the handle to the cord. This is the only way to get tension onto the spring at the fully retracted position because the catch for the spring is on the machine and the spring itself is on the underside what you are assembling.
If you do not wish to shorten the cord or replace it, then remove the handle, assemble enough to catch the spring, wind one turn tighter then feed rope through hole and reattach handle. Easier said than done.
If your spring is broken, then you will be needing a new one.

How do I replace the pull start?


Remove the four screws securing the starter houseing, with the starter removed, pull the cord out, tuck the cord into the cut a way in the side of the pulley and allow the cord to wind in slowley to let the tention off the spring, make sure all the tention has gone, now remove the centre screw, take away the pulley centre and the round spring from behind, note the hole in the pulley and the centre hub for the spring location, now carefully remove the pulley, be aware there is a large spring behind, remove the knot in the end and remove the starter handle, fit the cord back into the new pulley, refit the pulley into the cover making sure to locate into the spring behind, thread the cord back through the cover and reconnect the handle, knot the cord, re fit the round spring back into the locating hole in the pulley, re fit the pulley hub making sure the spring fits into the hole in the hub, re fit the securing screw, now put the cord back into the cut a way in the side of the pulley, wind up the spring, allow it to pull the cord back into the starter, only wind it enough to pull the cord fully back into the cover, re fit the starter.

Pull cord broke on my craftsman gas push edger. I replaced cord but when I pull cord..It wont rewind but I can hear it trying to start


It sounds like you did not properly rewind the spring that is behind the spool that the cord would around, that spring is what rewinds the cord after pulling the cord.

How do i get the pull cord spring back in on a


Recoil Spring Rewind
I invert and secure the housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection, both hands and no women around work area!). I'm right handed so I tension the spring enough to insert it inside the previous coil while holding what has already been installed with my left about 180° from my right hand. The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely inserted. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. It will require about 2 turns of pretension for it to retract properly. HTH

The pull cord on my 110 honda broke, so we


It sounds like you have it back together correctly except for one issue. You did not put enough pre-load back in to the spring.
Or in other words you didn't rewind the spring enough.

Normally you attach the cord to be rewound and turn or tighten the spring until the length of the cord is completely retracted on to the pulley. This problem usually happens because the unit is reinstalled at this point. What you need to do is turn it another 2 to 4 turns (depending on the pulley size), to place enough tension on the cord to fully retract. You may have to experiment with the number of turns to get it right because both the length of the new cord and pulley size influence this.
If this still doesn't take care of the problem please let me know and I'll try and talk you through it.

Hope this helps.

The pull cord has come off the spindle, how do I get it back on properly or install a new one and reset the spring tension


Remove the starter cover, rewind or wind a new cord onto the spool. Turn the spool about 2 turns against the spring, thread the pull cord through the starter cover and reinstall the pull handle.
