Hello sir, i'm guessing the rope is broken , first you'll need a c-clamp large enough to clamp the spooler, needle-nose pliers,a small tipped screwdriver and a new length of rope.the safest way is to remove the rewind assembly cover leaving the spooler in place in its housing. try to remove the old rope with neddle nose pliers ans small tipped screwdriver.next hand spin the spooler to achieve spring tension until stops back off enough to line holes up, place c-clamp to hold it in place,now try to fish the new rope into the hole in the knot recess,trying to guide it to the exit hole in the cover, ( it's easier to feed the rope if you singe the end of the rope with a bic lighter and form to a point )and with a small knot at the other end,pull the rope all the way until you can seat the knot into the knot recess.next tie a loop knot into the other end of the rope,so the end wont be recoiled all the way into the housing.with tesion on the rope gently remove the c-clamp and let the rope be drawed in.if it draws all the way to the loop knot, check to see if the spooler is full if so,( not too full where rope is binding ) pull the rope about a foot and re clamp the spooler and install the pull handle, if rope is too long you may have to cut to length. if it doesn't draw all the way to the loop knot and the spooler is not full than you may need to add anoyher revolution to the spring tension in the same fashion as described above.there are eisier ways but that evolves removal of the spooler and repacking the reciol spring.( not for the novice ). hope this helps,MrFixIt,thank you.

Ditch that old switch, and buy a better quality switch from HomeDepot or RadioShack that will suit your need. I personally ran into that same problem and brought a 2HP GP switch from HomeDepot. It works way better, than that stock swicth. ( It may require a little modification to the body though.)

The needle valve is sticking open. The carb needs cleaning and diaphragm replaced. Probably best taken to a shop unless you have experience with diaphragm carburetors. Dwain

After pulling the starter coil, it will not be pulled back into the machine or better said, it will not coil for another attempt at starting.


Sounds as either the recoil spring located under the the recoil housing has either broken or the plastic housing that holds the spring end has broken. you will need to remove the recoil housing to determine the problem. To remove:
1. Remove the drive tube by removing the clamp around the front of the housing and gently pull the drive tube from the engine.
2. Remove the torx or slotted screws holding the recoil assembly on
3. Remove the star washer with a flat screwdriver and gently lift the recoil from the housing.
The spring will be directly. You should be able to see the problem at that point.

The pull string wont go back in on the weedeater


Likely the recoil spring has broken (often the end) or the plastic recoil winding in which the spring sets in has broken or worn to the point in which the spring will no longer seat properly. Complete removal is necessary to determine the problem.

WeedEater Edger PE550 Starter Rope will not recoil


Order a new recoil spring from your suppier. It comes wound up. Remove the old part first usually four screws on the outside. Make sure the rope is fully wound then insert the new spring and reassamble. If it becomes unwound by mistake its a labourious job to rewind but can be done.

Can't get the nut off.. is there a secret to blade removal


Hi these are usually the opposite way to which the blade turns but you may have to use a rattle gun to remove this. If you have a look at the thread you should be able to determine which way it comes off. Just remember to fix the blade so it wont turn and take your fingers off.

Pullrope broke on weedeater 550 how do i get it apart to fix it


ther eshoul dbe some bolt holding the pullcord/recoil assenbly to the flywheel/motor. you need to locate and find these bolts first. let me know when you have this apart. you have to unwind the rope and pull it completley out, then buy a new pullcord rope(other rope will just fray and break agai) slip it thru the holes tie a knot wind up the spring and carefu;lly place it back on were it came. let me know if you run into any trouble.
