I replaced a broken starter cord and when I reassemble the starter won't turn. Any ideas?


Remove for the n-th time the pull start assembly. Confirm the engine will in fact rotate by hand. Turn the flywheel a full turn or more ensuring that the engine is free. You should expect to feel some resistance from the compression cycle.

Holding the hand crank assembly attempt to pull the pull-cord and observe that the hub rotates. When released the spring returns the cord and handle into the wound position.

If the cord will not pull or operate as expected then remove and reassemble the cord into the pulley making sure that the knot retaining the cord is small enough and does not interfere with the operation. U-tube has several videos showing how to assemble the cord to the hub.

Why does my Sportsman 400 start by the pull cord, but will not start with the ignition. It turns over fine.


replace the battery as there is not enough charge to start and provide power for the ignition
when you pull start the max power is provided to the ignition system

Pull cord for starter is not catching?


There are starter pawls that catch the flywheel when the rope is pulled. They are plastic. You will need to disassemble the unit and remove the starter assembly to inspect the pawls.

My pull cord rips out of my hand


The string assembly should reach a point far enough out when you pull the cord that it lets it spin free of the engine. What you are probably experiencing is the engine kick-back, where the engine is compressing the air/gas in the cylinder, and the pressure pushes the engine back. The crankshaft is connected to the pull cord assembly, so it's pulling out of your hand. You may not be pulling hard enough, or the cord assembly needs replacing.

The pull cord will not pull to start the trimmer


i had a problem like this on an old mower, the cord had become tangled inside the unit, it limited the pull of the cable so it would now spin the engine enough to start. it is not too difficult to to pop the top off the unit and check for tangles or knots

Rope needs rewound, got tangled up , had to remove the 4 nuts, now need to get in back on wound tight


I assume that you are speaking of a pull start mechanism.
I can not imagine how to put a put pull starter back on "wound tight". Your pulling on the cord tightens a spring which pulls the cord back in. They go back together with the cord fully wound onto the spool.
Usually, I only take these apart to replace the cord. Wind the new cord onto the spool without handle. Reassemble, then pull out on the cord a little when attaching the handle to the cord. This is the only way to get tension onto the spring at the fully retracted position because the catch for the spring is on the machine and the spring itself is on the underside what you are assembling.
If you do not wish to shorten the cord or replace it, then remove the handle, assemble enough to catch the spring, wind one turn tighter then feed rope through hole and reattach handle. Easier said than done.
If your spring is broken, then you will be needing a new one.

Starter cord only pulls 1 foot


Most push mowers have 3 bolts on the side of recoil shroud. One in front, (where plug is) and two on side.
