If you've got a receipt that shows it's less than 2 years old you might be able to get your local Briggs dealer to take the blower housing off and see what is wrong with the recoil starter, have a look at this link http://www.briggsnetwork.com/maint_repair/BS_engine-warranty.pdf
Otherwise you'll have to do some troubleshooting yourself. The carb comes off first (you'll need an E5 torx socket to get the studs off), then the blower housing along with the recoil starter.

Did that help? Rate me friend :-)

Coleman powermate vangaurd 9hp. how long is the pull start rope?


no set length on any recoil repair
old one will be stretched or broken

melt cord end for ease of fitting and no fraying through holes
and finishing knots

feed one end into recoil internal through outer and inner casing
then knot
set recoil spring into correct position and tension

cord is at least three times around recoil
leave excess cord out for pull handle and later adjustment

then cut .. melt end .. feed thought pull handle

then adjust as you test recoil off the motor

then fit to motor.. pull a few times

and final adjustment of cord length at the pull handle

The easiest test to run on the generator is to remove the spark plug and see if it pulls easier. If it does then it is a compression problem. I doubt that is the case. If it does not then you need to take the generator off the motor and see if it still pulls hard.

Have champion 3500 watt generator recoil pull cord wont recoil HELP


need to take the recoil off the engine and check for a broken recoil spring, depending on the engine if it is a honda, they sell a replacement recoil unit, anything else and you will have to get creative....try tapping on the recoil with your palm and see if it trys to rewind, if no resistance or movement when bumping is a good indicator of a broken recoil spring....

Troybilt 5500 generator pull cord locks up...just had it for one year...cord was very easy to pull @ first...but lately it locks up when I try to start it...any suggestions?


your cord is too long is why its binding up ,,,on the tee hand where you put your hand on to pull,,,,take a screw driver and push up the tied knot out and away from the tee handle,,,,take and make another knot about 8 inches and pull the cord back into the tee handle then try it again. Most have a long rope, cord etc for maximum pull,,sometimes they go overboard on the length and it binds up on the rewind of the recoil system

I did not start my generator for a year and I went to start it this year and the engine was "frozen" and the pull cord would not move, it was stuck. Thus, it could not be started. I foolishly...


Old fuel will not make the engine lock up. While you will most likely need to clean the carb you should still be able to pull the engine over. Now the first thing to do is remove the spark plug and see if you can pull the engine over. If gas has drained into the engine there may be gas and oil in the head area. Do not stand in front of the spark plug hole when you try and pull it over just in case gas sprays out. If it still will not pull over then next remove the recoil starter and see if it is frozen up. With the recoil removed and the spark plug removed you should be able to turn the engine over by hand by grabbing the part that the recoil contacts, called the drive cup, that is bolted to the flywheel. Those are two somewhat easy things you can do to see if the engine is truly locked up.

Just bought a generator 5000/6250 style but my husband can't pull the recoil handle. i think it's stuck so we can't test the generator. the unit was shipped from california to the philippines. pls advice...


Try removing the spark plug and rotating the engine by hand.
It could be just a little corroded from shipment over the ocean.
But once you have it loosened up and the oil circulated, it should start much easier.
Make sure it has oil in it, because sometimes they drain the oil before shipping.
You could also have someone else try the starter rope. A new engine can be hard to start.

I broke the pull cord on my generator; how do I


you should remove the housing usually 4 bolts
dont remove anything else then look at the pully and remove the old chord tie a knot in the new chord and slot it into the hole on the pulley
you should then see a notch in the edge of the pulley this is for the chord to sit in while you turn the pully enough times to tension the recoil spring once tensioned enough so that it recoils all the chord slot the chord through the hole in the outer casing through the pull hande and knot it job done then refit
