The pull string locks up

The pull string to start the engine keeps locking up. Ill pull it a little bit out then it will lock. Ill let it loose and pull again and another 2 in will come out then it will lock again etc. i can do this until the whole string is out then let it wind back up but it will do the same thing again. How do i fix this problem?

SOURCE: Bits will not lock into chuck

First I would go to Makitatools.com and download a schematic for this tool. But it is pretty simple to remove the rubber dust shield and plastic collar to look for debris and proper movement in the chuck assembly. Make sure also that you are using the right SDS bits in tool. You should be able to push the bit into the collar and twist until it goes into and locks. Let me know and I will help further

The spinning device (the filament cassette I think) through which the cutting strings are attached has detached from the trimmer's stick. How can it be put back again or reattached?


There should be a knob that goes on AFTER the string spool that holds it on. IF the issue is it keeps turning when you try to put it back on, then on a machine with no clutch, the engine will need to be locked up. To do this, remove the spark plug and wire, pull on the start cord until you see (with a light) the piston go DOWN in the cylinder...then insert a length of soft, clean rope into the cylinder and this will lock it up when it tries to turn again.Parts on end of the machine are:

1. Bump Knob 2. String Spool 3. Spool Spring and finally 4. String Head Housing

Take plug out turn blower to where plug hole is down pull starter cord many times until all fuel is out. Clean plug, install, try starting without priming or choking. If no start try priming just until you get fuel to engine. Try starting again. If this works when storing blower leave fuel cap slightly loose in very hot weather until you want to start.

When pulling the string to start the weed eater it feels as it's locked and won't pull out more than an inch I have set it to full choke half choke also primed it nothing works how do I get it...


If this is a 2 cycle engine , which most weed eaters are, then it sounds like probably the piston is locked up inside the cylinder. Try taking the spark plug out. if it still will not pull out then take the recoil cover off. There should only be 4 screws holding it on. Once you get that off see if the string pulls out of recoil if it does then check to see if you can turn the crank on the engine.If the recoil string does not pull over then that needs to be repaired or replaced. If the crank on the engine will not turn over by hand then your engine is siezed. If you take the covers off to expose the exhaust there are 2 bolts that hold it on take those out and look inside. If you see vertical scoring on piston then your machine isnot worth fixing

Rethreading a garden strimmer


Hi Deborah,
You need to start from the beginning of the trimmer string. Remove the entire spool. Insert the start of the line through and wedge it into the little groove to keep it from coming loose. Now wind the line tightly and neatly in the direction shown on the spool. (it should provide an arrow stating to "wind this way". As you near the end of the line, keep it snug and push the end through the hole where it leads out to the cutting zone. As you re-insert the spool into the housing, make sure it stays tightly wound as you lock it into place. This should help. Usually when your string is too short, you tap the **** of the spool on the ground to advance the line. It should feed a bit at a time, and when you hear it getting cut off, you should stop advancing the line.
Hope this helps.
