What would have caused my talon whipper snipper to seize?

I had the pull rope replaced on my whipper snipper and I have used it twice and now it is seized, there is no give in the cord at all. Is this likely to be a problem with the cord, or has the engine just given up?

Pope whipper snipper starter cord problem


The first thing you need to do is take the recoil cover off. There are several parts to a recoil and one or more parts may be worn and coming out of place then jamming.Replace worn parts if this is the case. If the cord pulls freely when removed then you may have a problem in the engine, try turning the flywheel by hand with the spark plug out. If it does not rotate there is something inside the cylinder or broken in the crankcase. If it is a 4 stroke engine you may have fluid above the piston,you will find this out when you remove the spark plug. drain the fluid from the cylinder and replace the plug you will be good to go. Good luck

Whipper snipper wont start


when you pull the rope with the plug out do you get any gas coming out of the plug hole? It sounds to me like you have a faulty carburetor that is causing the unit to load up on gas stopping the piston from being able to move all the way with the plug in it

How do I replace the pull rope on a Talon Eagle Classic whipper snipper? I have tried but am unable to recoil the spring thing.


This can be very tricky.

You have to turn the assembly clockwise to put tension on the spring and hold it in this position while you attach the new rope. Then release the tension and let the spring release pull the rope back into the assembly.

DO NOT let the spring get out of the cavity in which it fits. Getting these things back where they belong can be a real headache.
