Most likely the recoil spring broke. The engine cover has to be removed to repair this. If you are not mechanically inclined, it would be best to take it to a local small engine repair shop. Proper replacement involves knowing how many pre-wind rotations is required to properly recoil the rope. Some things are just better left to the pros.
yes take the top cowling cover off that houses the pull start normaly 4 to 6 bolts around the lower edge of this & you can pick this cord up from most diy stores or tool rentle firms just be carefull when the cowling is off that the cord spool/pully will most likely be under spring pressure unless the cord as broken completley hope this helps
That pressure washer uses a Honda 5.5 hp overhead cam engine You need to get the model number of the Honda Engine and thenClick Here to go to the ereplacementparts.com website and put the engine model number to order the parts.
My power washer started doing that after the pull-cord mechanism broke. I took off the hoses to make sure there was no back-pressure caused by the pump. And pull rope was still frozen. We took off the pull rope cover on top of the machine. The cover came off easy. After that we lifted out the spring-pulley where the rope is attached the spring unwound and we couldn't get it back together so I bought another one. We should not have lifted it out ... we should have tried to get it to move first without lifting it up. In any case the washer worked fine after the replacement.
When you store a power washer, be sure to drain the water and disconnect the hoses. Don't leave any gasoline in the engine or it will gum up the carburetor. Never turn a gasoline engine on its side or upside down or the oil will run into carburetor, and carburetor will need work.
Usually you have to take the shroud that contains the recoil starter assembly off to get to it. You may have to take it apart to fix the rope. If it broke on the end nearest the starter, you probably have enough rope left to reuse it. Usually they break right at the starter, due the the constant bending and rubbing. Pay attention to how it comes apart, and make sure to rewind your spring before putting the rope back on the pulley, otherwise it will not wind back up.
if you have not replaced cord you will need to do this,when you fit the cord turn the pulley 4 or 5 times full circle the same way as if it was pulling cord,then feed cord through pulley and out of housing to fit handle when this is done you can let pulley recoil and you should have correct tension,hope this helps
