SOURCE: how do i replace the started cord on my ryobi weed wasp

Broken starter ropes or failure to retract are both repairs that are fairly easy. However, the spring can be nasty as it is under tension (or should be when reassembled). This can be risky if you are not familiar with the internal construction as you disassemble the unit.

The cause of a broken cord is obvious. The cause for a failure to retract could be a broken spring, tangled or frayed rope, or some other mechanical failure. A broken spring will require total disassembly of the starter mechanism - fortunately there really isn't that much involved.

With some designs, it is possible to replace the cord without fully disassembling the starter mechanism - by threading the cord in and tying a not in the end - but after rotating it several turns to put the proper tension on the spring. This is relatively safe but may be frustrating as 3 hands are sometimes needed.

Where safe disassembly is not obvious, I would recommend that you refer to a book on lawn mower or small engine repair from the library or the service manual for the mower, if possible. You may be able to find specific step-by-step instructions which will minimize your risk of injury from an encounter with an uncontrolled spring.

When the rope pulls out and retracts normally - but doesn't do anything else - the most likely cause is a problem with the one-way clutch. This may be part of the spring-rope assembly - usually removable as a unit - or attached to the flywheel. The most common problems are gummed up lubrication or a broken spring or other damaged or worn parts.

anyway... there is a torx screw in the middle of the clutch drum(metal part that rotates).you will need to use a piston stop,to stop the engine turning while trying to undo the torx screw. i am assumig the starter is in front of the engine not at the back. once the screw is undone the clutch will come off and so will the starter cover.(source: neil)

Thanks for using Fixya

Have a nice day!

SOURCE: i can't get the head off of my ryobi weed wacker,

Either the bolt has stripped out the plastic piece that holds the spool on, in which case you will need to buy a new plastic piece.

Or, the bolt is stripped where it threads into the metal insert.
Pull outward and unscrew counter clockwise.

SOURCE: Screw cap to reel head of ryobi ss30 weed eater will not come off

hey! I just had the same thing happen to me 30mins ago. I tried prying it off with a screw driver and punching it out.No such luck. Frustrated, I tried turning the spool from the base and it popped right out and I was able to easily disassemble.

Sounds like the clutch has taken a long trip south. If the clutch pads are not wore out, try some wd40 on the pad hinges.

SOURCE: Ryobi Weed Wasp starts but cuts out after 2 to 3

Sounds like it is running on the prime. Check the fuel filter in the tank and if it looks clogged or dark, replace it. If that is not it, now is the time to consider a carburetor clean and rebuild, with a replacement of fuel lines and primer bulb. Today's ethenol in gas is murder on small engine soft components.

My Ryobi weed eater the head of the weed eater is hard to turn and the engine doesn't want to turn it


problem most likely is that the cable drive for the head is twisted up inside the tube and jamming the operation
you have 2 options
remove the head from the tube and pull the cable out or
remove the tube from the power head and pull the cable out that way
new cables are available from your local mower shop
if the cable guides inside the tube are damaged , consider replacing the bent tube with a straight tube , then you can use more attachments for the head

The following as the images of the parts list. I couldn't anything on the USA site. Being made in the 1990's most of the parts are not going to be available anymore.

This is an Australian site that I did find with the info. I don't anything about them so use caution.

You should be able to take the housing loose with about 4-6 torx head bolts/screws and get in there and untangle the rope. May not even have to take the housing off, just loosen it. Good Luck!
