Remove the rope case and see if it is the mower -also - remove the spark plug and try it - also - - after removing the spark plug - also -try spinning the blade. If you remove the top you will see the problem sooner.

Can you hear the motor run when you try to start it when it's cold? If so then it could be in the drive mechanism. I had one that I thought had a bad bendix in the starter. Here it has a rubber disc that turns the starter sprocket. I removed the retainer, took off the sprocket. Cleaned everything and re-assembled, and low and behold it worked. A new starter was over $100.00. Now if yours doesn't even turn when its cold, I'd look into the starter push button, or key switch for bad connection.

Replace pull cord


Echo is one of the easiest pull cords to fix, remove the screws on the rewind and take off the motor and flip it over and pull old rope out and put new rope in wind the spring the correct way so when you pull rope it tightens spring so it will wind back up when let go, not winding too tight !

Starter rope pulley will not pull the rope back into the leaf blower.


Most commonly, the recoil rope rewind spring is broken. However, inspect the recoil housing assembly first to make sure no debris or rope fragments have prevented the rope rotor from rewinding. Always remove the spring 'AS A LAST RESORT'. Many rewind problems can be solved by inspection of the rotor and not have to remove the spring. In case you do, I will include instructions on how to re-install.

1) remove the recoil housing
**NOTE: normally you DO NOT need to remove the rotor pulley or spring to replace the rope. This is the area that causes so many guys a lot of extra trouble

2) locate the string that is left and the hole it is threaded thru

3) determine how much string has broken off of the rope that came out

Note: if more than 1 inch is left, then the rope needs to be replaced

4) after rope is obtained, make sure both ends are melted to a point for easier threading thru handle and rope rotor

5) install the rope (with the handle installed on one end) thru the recoil housing and towards the rope rotor.

6) with the rotor free of tension, route the rope from the groove toward center and up thru the hole. Tie a knot in the end of the rope, leaving a 3/8" tail free.

7) wind the rotor in the direction of what the rope would pull (this will tighten the spring) until the spring is completely wound. remove 1/2 to 1 revolution, and then allow rope to wind onto the rotor until all rope is wound.

8) Pull the rope several times to position rope properly into rotor.
*note : there should be NO droop in the handle after released
If droop is evident, wind the rotor and rope 1 revolution tighter so there is no droop of handle when released

9) when unit is functioning proplerly, re-install housing onto unit

I have a broken pull cord and cannot figure out how to fix it.


Easiest way is to remove the complete blower housing assembly, remove the old rope, then twist the rope pulley around and around until the spring is tight, ease it back until the hole in the pulley for the rope lines up with the hole in the recoil housing and stick a small screwdriver through the pulley and the housing to hold tension on the spring. Next, take your new rope and feed it first through the recoil housing, then through the hole in the pulley, tie a good solid knot right at the end of the rope and pull it back out until you feel it pulling on the pulley. Now holding tension on the rope, remove the screwdriver and let the spring tension slowly pull the rope back into the the pulley until it is full, pull it back out about a half turn on the pulley and tie a slip knot against the outside of the housing to hold it in place and reassemble everything. Hook the end of your rope through the rope guide on your handle if it has one, slip the handle on and tie a knot to hold it. Cut off the excess, pop out the slip knot and it will pull up tight and you are ready to go

The starter rope broke on my Toro mower and the housing around it is riveted on. how do i get it off to replace the rope?


I cannot believe that someone suggested grinding off the rivets. If the bottom portion of the rivet falls down and gets caught by the magnet on your flywheel and you try to start it you are going to do some SERIOUS damage.

Here is the instructions DIRECT FROM BRIGGS & STRATTON:

This is a relatively simple process, but you have to be VERY careful when doing this. The spring is long, under some tension and has sharp edges. Anytime you are dealing with the manual rewind starter assembly, there is risk of the spring coming out and possibly injuring yourself or others. If you do not feel comfortable performing this repair, I strongly suggest visiting one of our many authorized dealers in your area and have them do this for you.
You will have to remove the gas tank2.gif to get at the rewind and blower housing. Remove the entire blower housing and rewind assembly and turn it upside down.
NOTE:You do not have to drill out the rivets to get to the back of the rewind assembly. This is only necessary if you are removing the ENTIRE rewind assembly, (metal housing and all) and are separating it from the blower housing.
You'll need a pair of vise grips or a screw driver, some rewind rope, a long thin sharp tip flexible object (the wire from a coat hanger may work) and a lighter handy.
  1. Take the pulley and start to turn it so that the rope becomes loose.
  2. Remove the rope.
  3. Once the pulley is all the way out, with the most tension, either use the screwdriver between the spokes of the pulley, or use the vise grips to hold the pulley in place; be careful not to place too much pressure on the vise grips, the plastic pulley may break!
  4. Make sure that the hole in the pulley lines up with the hole on the rewind assembly.
  5. Using the wire from the coat hanger, push the rope through the hole of the rewind and pulley. Pull the rope through the pulley and tie it off. Now use the lighter to burn the end of the rope to prevent the not from coming off.
  6. Now, remove the screwdriver or vise grips, while holding on to the pulley.
  7. SLOWLY let go of the pulley and the rope should feed back into the pulley as you do this.

Rope won't recoil. i can jiggle it back in.


Clock spring either broken or un-hooked in inside of pull assembly. you have to take it apart and either re-attach spring or replace spring. Interior of assembly shoul;d be available on-line. You should have model # available.

Pull cord came undone


sounds like the spring might have broken. Sometimes they are a pain to rewind. Might want to see about a new pull assembly. But first take off the shroud to see if the little pieces of metal or plastic that engages the assembly on top of the fly wheel are ok. If so untie the cord to the hand hold and remove rope from the pulley inside. Then turn the pulley a couple of times and let it go(but watch your fingers). If it spins pretty fast then turn it again till you get some tension and I put a screwdriver through the fins so it doesn't unwind (but line up the hole where the line goes through first) then put the line through the holes and tie a knot. Then pull out the screwdriver and slowly let the line rewind. If it rewinds reassemble and it should work fine for you.

Let me know if this helped.

Thanks

The starter pull cord has pulled off.


EASY,REMOVE TOP COVER OF ENGINE THAT HOUSES ROPE ASSY. LOOK UNDERNEATH PLASTIC PIECE,CUT THE KNOT OFF THAT COMES THROUGH HOLE AND PULL AND EXISTANT ROPE OUT. OK, GET NEW ROPE AND HANDLE TOGETHER,THE END THAT IS OPPOSITE FROM NEW PULL STRING HANDLE YOU ARE GOING TO USE. CAREFULLY WIND UP ROPE HOUSING NICE AND FIRM JUST BY WINDING IT UP WITH HAND IN AS IT SITS IN TOP COVER. WHEN YOU THINK IT HAS ENOUGH TO PULL ROPE IN FEED END OF ROPE IN HOLE AND IN CHANNEL OF ROPE HOUSING,THERE IS A SMALL HOLE TO LINE IT UP WITH,WHEN SEE THE ROPE END FEED IT THROUGH THAT HOLE NOW. MAKE TAKE ANOTHER SET OF HANDS OR A WEDGE TO STOP RETRACTING OF SPRING. PULL ROPE THROUGH AND TIE A DOUBLE KNOT AT END SO IT WONT PULL THROUGH. SLOWLY LET IT PULL ROPE IN,THEN PULL ROPE BY HANDLE FULL LENGTH TO ENSURE ALL KINKS ARE OUT AND IT PULLS BACK IN LIKE IT SHOULD.
