The manual recoil starter I pulled starter slowly two or three times and then cord was loose no resistance what is the problem?

Sounds like the starter drive is jammed. Look for a large cog azt the back of the starter cord on the motor, manually push it in the opposite direction to the spin created when the cord is pulled.

I have a ryobi hedge trimmer RHT 2660 DA why wont the pull cord wont return ?

If you can try and tap by the starter housing with a small hammer and then you need to get some lubricant spray injected in to the spring. If it wont go back in there is a chance the spring has either broke or become unseated.

You have to understand its a cord spulled around a recoil spring. The coed likely didn't rewind correctly one time. However the entire unit unbolts with three screws.Remove the unit from the engine and check the cord and realine the core raping path as well as check the return recoil spring function. If you can not realign you can replace the unit as a part. After the first pull the engine has pressure to and that makes it harder to pull to.But try re alinging the assembly i have to do it to mine and its a 1964 and it still works

Pull string won't recoil

Sounds like the return spring has either broken or come loose from an anchor point. Remove the entire starter mechanism from the saw and pull at the cord. The problem should be evident once you can see what is happening. It may be a kink formed in the cord that prevents return. Good luck!

The pull string will not pull out to start the

Remove the starter mechanism from the saw and try to turn the flywheel--it should turn freely except when the piston is rising against compression. If ok, pull the starter cord and watch for twisted cord or a damaged/split spool. Try to turn the spool CW by hand to see if it is bound up by something. Was the starter cord just replaced? If so, maybe the return spring was over-wound and can't be turned further. Hope this helps!

The kick starter wont return on my 88 yamaha yz 250

If you can pull it back easily by hand, means it is not siezed where the shaft goes through the cases. so it may need a new return spring, you will have to pull the RHS cover off

Recoil starter will not engage engine when stater rope is pulled

The tooth/notches in the housing are worn out or broken,if the pull cord returns to the original position than the return spring is still good and you will only need to worry about replacing the gear/housing that attaches to the crankshaft .Good luck on the repair job ..BOB
