How do I fix the pull string on a push mower?


Hi Barbara:
The pull start assembly is usually attached by 3 or 4 bolts.
Start by removing it. Depending on where the pull cord broke, you may be able to use it shortened a bit, but replacement is probably a good idea.
There is a spring inside the thing the cord winds around (spool)that retracts it after you've pulled on it. The tricky part is making sure that the spring is wound up enough after you've installed the replacement cord.
Look at the way the old cord is installed. If you can, grab it with some pointy pliers and pull it all the way out, winding up the spring tension at the same time. There should be a way to hold the spool (look for a hole you can slip the end of a nail into) so you can change the cord. Then Take the nail out and make sure the cord retracts all the way.
Next step is to re-install it on the mower.
Cheerfuls!

Fix recoil when pull cord on sanli lawnmower broke


Take the starter assembly off the mower. Unwind the spool using whatever method works (2 screwdrivers?) until you capture the remaining. cord. Pull it all the way out. Pin the spool so that it can't retract. Remove and replace the cord. Re-assemble. Back to cutting grass!

My accelerator cable on my Victa V40 appears to be looser now so when I pull the cord off choke the revs no longer increase, how do I fix it?


hi.. the thottle cable has round end has poped out of its cam housing(gray plastic) inside the plastic carby... the only way to fix that is to remove the carby, but before you do clean your mower as you will create more issues if dirt/grass gets into the parts you will be working on...also take pictures before you start taking thing off, so you know how to reassemble it, as the carby will need to be taken apart....good luck

How to replace starter cord on a victa corvette 400 series mower,cord snapped,i put it back on....now it doesnt retract properly when trying to start it


Not sure what engine that machine uses but they are all similar, you need to prewind the reel before you slip the rope thru the hole, let the spring/reel pull the rope in.

Pull Rope Broke... How do I replace it and still have it retract?


with the cover in your hand pull the cord out with a pair of needle nose pliers or a little screw driver and where the cord go through the case and before the wheel. pull 5 to 10 inches out and wrap the cord around the wheel turning the wheel but not winding the cord on., do 3 or 4 wraps then pull the handle to get all the cord out and let it retract. if not enough rewind just repeat with 2 wraps
