rotate the starter pulley by hand. You should feel the spring getting tight. Once the pulley is slightly tensioned, usually 5-10 turns, release the pulley and let is pull the string onto the pulley. You may have to add some tension to get all the rope to wind on the pulley.

SOURCE: Starting problem with a Ryobi rlt30ces petrol strimmer

Hi
I have had the similar problem & spent a day stripping the unit down
(dismantled & re-assembled the carb, seemed OK fuel reaching & flooding the plug) I unscrewed the spark plug from the body, but left it connected to the lead and found that there was intermittent spark when pulling the cord. and tested it with a continuity meter - no signal/measurement. bought a new spark plug, meter reading showed signal/measurement, now starts every time. It may be that Ryobi has been installing rather cheap nasty plugs. So test the plug first by watching the spark when pulling cord, test with a meter, if no continuity, buy new plug....


Check also that little gauze air filter behind the roto choke is not blocked.
this solved it for me.

Please remember to give me a rating ...ta

SOURCE: how do I replace the pull cord on a ryobi #ss30 weed trimmer

You need a long skinny T25 torque driver (sold in a pack at Lowe's with 3 other sizes.)

Take off the 4 screws in the back to reveal the piston. Get a wooden dowel (or a wooden spoon if your wife isn't around) and stick it in to the piston to block it from spinning.

Now take that T25 and stick it in to the front pulley (cone shaped silver item that is preventing the housing from coming off) turn to the left and it should come off.

That should come off to reveal about a 1"x1.5" piece with a spring wrapped around it. That can also turn to the left and come off with an adjustable wrench or pliers.

Once that is off the housing should come away and you'll be able to get at the pull cord after removing 4 more T25 screws.

SOURCE: mcculloch t 240 petrol will not start

If your petrol has been sitting in the machine for a long time then yes it is your petrol. Mix a new batch usually you cannot let that sit around for more than 30 days, I always try to use fresh mixes, usually that means making smaller batches unless you use your trimmer quite a bit, most people do not though and that's when problems arise.

I have a tandem pacer 2400 lawn mower, my gardener was cutting fairly wet grass, it tripped the power and now does not start, even left it for a few hours ? thank you Vanessa


have the lead to the mower tested and tagged
if there is any insulation problems in the lead , then the rcd breaker will trip from earth leakage problems

wet grass is very heavy to cut so the motor may have overheated
press the reset button if it has one or have the electrician doing the test and tag of the cord also check the motor

moisture and power do not mix so electric mowers are only suitable for dry cutting

Looking for a serial number for a back pack echo pb-413h blower


if unlucky lost its serial number sticker from petrol spill/heat

if lucky something stamped into the alloy housing of assembly

most mower repair shops can track down sample parts without the serial number

a factory limit of hours on blowers are as little as 100 hours

unless it came with the user book from new purchase
you may never know

am i to assume its a diesel ,if so sounds like its out of fuel but i could be wrong as its been many years since i have worked on tractors and all the fancy electronic gizmo on modern vehicles can confuse me.Now firstly check the key as no doubt as its a modern one it has a immobilisor and if the head of key loses its chip inside the key head it will never start unlike the old ones that would run on paraffin diesel or petrol ,the later ones were diesel only but again providing they had fuel and oil with the rad topped up they ran 24/7 ,thats a point check the oil level if its low it may stop the engine from starting

Hello, I'm not very familiar w/ your model but it could be a
timing problem, the fuel is not being injected at the right time
to fire. On a older J.D.such as the 820 ect. would not inject at the right time, there is a place on the injector pump that corrects it, however, I would call a ford tractor dealer, or go online to www.tractornet.com
and list your problem. There are many people on this site that can and will help you. Good luck.

My starter string broke on my troybilt lawn trimmer, how do i fix it


Disassembly of the covers and controls to that point will be needed. It takes a little bit of work, then you have to preload the spring tension on the recoil unit BEFORE you install new rope. A good little bit of labor involved....somewhat mechanically inlined?
