Starter rope will not retract


sounds like the spring in the recoil starter broke. they usually break on the very end where they bend around connect. I have bent a new 'catch' on the end and got it to work.

Pull cord for starter is not catching?


There are starter pawls that catch the flywheel when the rope is pulled. They are plastic. You will need to disassemble the unit and remove the starter assembly to inspect the pawls.

I pulled the starter rope out of the unit. How do I take the unit apart to re-wind the starter rope?


Take the cover off and look under it, you should see a plastic round disc that the rope winds on, You will need to locate the string and get it out of the cover where it passes through,once this is done, you will have to turn the disc the correct way to tighten spring ( you should be able to feel the pressure building as you turn, if not go other way, or the spring is broke, in wich case you need parts. If all is well, when you feel tension on it and have enough....not to much...just think about how much pull you had before it broke,because when the rope comes out it gets tighter towards full pull of rope, HOLD tension and put string through the hole on cover, once you have it through tie your handle back on, you should be able to release and jossle to get the rope back in the groove, Place on machine and see if you have enough tension that it will retract in cover when pulled and let go, if it does not you will have to repeat procedure, and tighten spring.....Do not get carried away with the loading of the spring......TIP you can shorten string if you just lack a little bit of it retracting in cover because it gets tighter when pulled out....Good Luck!

Weedeater gas blower FLI500E. The pull cord has become jammed. How can I un-jam the rope pull? I have removed the bottom of the blower and can get the rope pulled out, but it will not retract properly or...


You have to find a way to push the starter. It normally gets all stuck due to grease. One push with a screwdriver on the actual starter (The thing the rope turns) should wind the whole cord up. If not, clean it. Alot of oil/chunky-ness gets trapt when your using it.

Starter cord is stuck. Will not retract. What do I do


I spent a lot of time, but I found that most of the problems with this starter rope etc, are caused by the starter assembly being too tightly mounted to the motor assembly causing drag on the rope mechanism.
I fixed the problem by adding spacer washers between the starter and the engine mount (two small washers on each of the 5 or 6 mounting bolts adding about 1/4 inch of clearance.
Now even my wife can start this machine..

The starter pull rope will not retract


The recoil starter spring may need to be replaced or the starter pulley has become fused to the plastic housing. If it is not under warranty; taking to a shop to get fixed may be more than what you want to spend. It may be time for a new one.
Good Day.

Starter rope will not retract


Either you have a broken rewind spring, or the starter mechanism is dirty to the point where the force of the recoil spring is not sufficient to pull the rope back in.
WEAR SAFETY GLASSES while disassembling your starter mechanism to see what the problem is. Upon reassembly, it is a good idea to lube the post in the starter housing (the one the pulley slides over) with some graphite or teflon lube.

The starter pull cord has pulled off.


EASY,REMOVE TOP COVER OF ENGINE THAT HOUSES ROPE ASSY. LOOK UNDERNEATH PLASTIC PIECE,CUT THE KNOT OFF THAT COMES THROUGH HOLE AND PULL AND EXISTANT ROPE OUT. OK, GET NEW ROPE AND HANDLE TOGETHER,THE END THAT IS OPPOSITE FROM NEW PULL STRING HANDLE YOU ARE GOING TO USE. CAREFULLY WIND UP ROPE HOUSING NICE AND FIRM JUST BY WINDING IT UP WITH HAND IN AS IT SITS IN TOP COVER. WHEN YOU THINK IT HAS ENOUGH TO PULL ROPE IN FEED END OF ROPE IN HOLE AND IN CHANNEL OF ROPE HOUSING,THERE IS A SMALL HOLE TO LINE IT UP WITH,WHEN SEE THE ROPE END FEED IT THROUGH THAT HOLE NOW. MAKE TAKE ANOTHER SET OF HANDS OR A WEDGE TO STOP RETRACTING OF SPRING. PULL ROPE THROUGH AND TIE A DOUBLE KNOT AT END SO IT WONT PULL THROUGH. SLOWLY LET IT PULL ROPE IN,THEN PULL ROPE BY HANDLE FULL LENGTH TO ENSURE ALL KINKS ARE OUT AND IT PULLS BACK IN LIKE IT SHOULD.
