Homelite weedeater pull cord wont retract once ive pulled on it to start


you will need to remove starter cover & boom assy ,
sounds like either the rewind spring is broken or the pulley has split at the base of pulley or the starter pawls are bent / jamming , check that the centre pivot if this unit uses this type is not binding , pulley should be free , check the pulley is not damaged ?
either way once cover is off you should be able to see the problem
check the lugs that secure the pulley to the cover if unit has 3 lugs that secure to the cover ?

replacement parts should be available reassemble and test

cheers hope it helps paul

Starter cord will not recoil


Sounds like either something is caught in the spool or the recoil spring is broken or the rewind spool is broken. You have to disassemble the unit to see. Do that and I think you will find the problem. When you do find it and need more help, please ask. Good luck...Lee

Pull start


Good chances is that the cord either got pulled to far out or the spring let go inside the cover that controls the rewind. It's not a big job...just remember how you took it apart www.nnyparts.com

After turning of engine. Starter pull cord stuck.


The recoil spring that rewinds the cord may have broken of pulled loose from its mooring.

Can not figure out how to restring


im pretty sure i have the same trimmer, take the spool off, take all the cord out of it, now look closely at the bumper, u should see an arrow, find the halfway and fold it so it 2 peices, dont cut it, and rewind the cord, ull see clips on the bumper thats for when ur finished itll hold the line back in place so u can put it on without hassling with the cords, once u get the bolt on and tightened, give those 2 cords a good pull and they will pop out of the clips and u should be good to go, if this doesnt help ya, there is a tutourial on fixing these on youtube.com
