How to Repair a Small Engine Recoil Starter ... Would like to now use the pull cord on the mower but it won ...
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.
you will need to pull the shroud back off, turn shroud upside down, wind it up and with a screwdriver or another pair of hands thread the cord back through, tie a knot and burn it, let go of the it, it will wind the cord back in, pull on it a few times and make sure it is working, then reinstall. Hope this helped Tim
There should be no need to remove the flywheel (fans?) to repair the starter cord. The starter mechanism should have come free of the left side housing so that everything you need to deal with is in that package. Did the cord break, or just pulled the cord free of the spool inside? If the cord broke, then buy a replacement cord (about 1-meter in length) of the same size and material (no cotton cord). Thread the cord into the spool center where there is a hole for the inside part of the cord and bring the end out of the hole. Melt the cord end, and then tie an overhand knot in the cord. Pull the knot back tight and proceed to wind the cord in a CCW direction around the spool until you have about most of it wound. Pull on the cord to wind the internal spring several turns and wedge the spool so that it won't unwind the spring. Wind the balance of the cord until you have about 8" left--feed that end through the outer hole and into the handle. Melt the cord end, then tie an overhand knot in it. Stuff the knot into the handle cavity and remove the spool wedge. Try the cord several times to make sure the spring pulls it back firmly and allows ample cord pull-out. Hope this helps!
You'll probably have to bring it to the repair shop, before that, you may try to remove the cage where the rope is coiled in normally and see if the knot is there, and then get some new rope, match the length, make a new knot, well you get my drift.
