Strimmer starter failure to rewind

Thank you for your suggestion - very practical and logical. Are you familiar with this particular strimmer? I ask because when I started to dismantle the body of the machine to gain access to the starter, I had to remove screws which secure the main arm of the device to the engine assembly - it felt as if the whole machine was being held together by four small screws! I chickened out at this stage! I don't know what 'traps' may be incorporated into its design - ones which may leave me holding a set of 'non-spare parts'!

    You're probably right in this diagnosis. The problem is that I can't see how to dismantle the machine. When I tried loosening some of the securing screws, the whole thing appeared to be on the verge of falling apart, so I chickened out and re-tightened them. I could do with an exploded diagram, such as I would find (I hope!) in a manual, to show me how it's held together. If I dismantle in without that help, I might find that I'm left with a collection of non-useable spare parts!

    Leslie: I am sorry that you are not able to get it apart. My question is...do you really want to fix it yourself? If so, go ahaid and and remove the main arm, keeping attention of how it comes apart. Then you should be able to reassemble it. Good luck!

You will need to take the housing off to expose the rewind mechanism. The most likely cause will be a broken rewind spring. Go on the WEB and search for your model and a part list. Locate the spring and order it. Once you install the spring, you will need to pre-tension the spring by by pulling the cord part way out and ciol it on the spool. Good luck

Homelite shows the short block assy ($84.02) but no breakdown of the top end. I've never taken one apart, not cost effective. Here's the link to their parts site. Have the UT number available
