If it is in warranty, it can be sent to Cuisinart for repair. If it is out-of-warranty, it will cost more than a new food processor to repair.

If the spindle is broken you have to take the front of the saw apart, but check for excessive wear in the other parts before buying just the one. Its not that hard just pay attention when you disassemble

SOURCE: Need to replace drive pin

Hi. The pin in question is a tapered pin and can only be tapped out one way. This pin fixes the main driving shaft to the planetary. Use a metal punch slightly smaller in size to the pin and gently tap out the remaining part of the pin toward the largest part of the pin. Once removed, you can install the new pin in the reverse manner. If this solution assisted you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45.

SOURCE: broken shift shaft

  • Obviously a Kawasaki dealer can replace the broken shaft. I assume you want to replace it yourself. I do not recommend you replace it yourself but if you feel able then > > >
  • Drain the gearbox and pull the engine from the bike. Remove the left case cover.
  • Remove the right side case cover. Remove the clutch.
  • Disengage the shift shaft pawl from the shift drum pins and pin retainer. See if the bad shift shaft will slide out from the center casings. I say " IF " because the shaft may be bent and may not slide freely through the casings. DO NOT try to hammer the shaft through the casings. You will scar the bore at the least and crack or break the casing at the worst.
  • If the shaft will not slide out freely, then you will need to cut the shaft in half from the clutch side and remove it from the flywheel side. A Dremel tool will cut the shaft.
  • Now install the new shift shaft and check to be sure the gears all shift smoothly up an down, ( rotate the clutch shaft while shifting ). A bent shift fork is a PROBABILITY anytime a shift shaft is damaged as yours was.
  • If you can run through the gears okay then re-assemble the engine. Add fresh oil to the gearbox and go for a test ride down the street. If the bike does not shift smoothly then you missed a bent shift fork in the prior step and will need to tear the engine down, split the certer case and then replace the bent fork.
  • Please rate this solution as a " FixYa ". Thanks!

Mine's a bent shaft. I guess only Victa agents can replace/repair the centrifugal clutch or internal broken cable?


not necessarily--- the broken drive cable can be removed /replaced by removing the trimmer head from the shaft at the bottom
undo the clamp and if there is a small screw/ bolt into the shaft undo that as well and pull the head off
the flexible drive cable will slip out
check the ends and they should be square in form
Mostly the cable breaks but occasionally that square section will wear round
slip in a new cable and reassemble

How do I replace the upper drive shaft on a Ryobi RBC430SEC brushcutter?


I couldn't find this model on google, but when replacing drive shafts in most brushcutters we used to slide the cutting head / gear assembly off the bottom of the shaft, remove the circlip holding the drive shaft if there was one, slide out the shaft from its square hole in the clutch at the motor end. If the shaft was broken we'd slide the motor part off the shaft to get the broken part of the shaft out.

Ryobi grass scorpion rct2800a head keeps coming off. Is there a screw or bolt to hold the head in the housing?


I see the spool shaft on the spool and not the drive cable. ALL my trimmers were designed for the line spool to come off the shaft (usually by removing the plastic bump feed nut). Your drive shaft appears to have a groove in it about 3/4 toward the top. I surmise that notch is where a broken/missing set screw or "c" clip would most likely hold the shaft to the drive cable. If you find it to be true, a factory part would not ne needed to find a replacement part to lock the shaft and drive cable.

No power when wheel spins


You may have a broken drive shaft. Some are braided and flexable and used on curved shaft units. The solid shaft is used on most straight shaft units. Remove the string head and pull the shaft out to look at the ends to see if they are broken or stripped. George

Trimmer runs but the head wont turn


It may be that the drive shaft is broken, or not engaged to the engine. Make sure the trimmer attachment is locked all the way onto the shaft coming from the engine. If it still doesn't work, check by seeing if any of the other attachments work when you put them on. If they do, you know the drive shaft in the trimmer attachment is probably broken.

The head stops going round, it sems to me that the drive shaft has become disconnected, can it be repaired by myself.


You need to take the drive shaft tube off the power head and see if it is broken. If the machine has the split boom, then you will need to inspect both. Just turn the end of the drive on one end, and see if the other end turns with it. If it is a one piece drive shaft, then, remove the boom from the front engine cover and turn it, noting if the string head turns too. You can fix this yourself.

The lower flex shaft appears too short. The string head will "stall"


It sounds as if the dive shaft is broken, but not to the point that it has come apart. I believe the drive shaft is separating inside the shaft housing and it cannot spring back until you take it apart.

you should take the drive shaft out and see if you can twist it apart along any section of it, (be careful not to twist too hard), I think you will find that it will separate somewhere along the shaft. If it doesn't separate, then you probably have something broken on the trimmer attachment.

Good Luck!

I believe what you need to do is remove the 3 screws on the trimmer head to remove the head from the lower shaft. After the head is off you can look down into where the shaft goes and be able to use some needlenose pliers or something of the sort to pull the broken part out.<!-- from fixya rte -->

The flex shaft drive you are referring to is only sold as a assy that I am aware of. You can try www.partstree.com for the replacement shaft assy. you are refering to, however you may find out by the time you buy a new shaft assy you may be money ahead just buying a new trimmer.

Engine runs great, no power at head, drive shafts not broken.


The drive shaft is not seated into position properly or the shaft has broken.

Have you had the shaft off recently? If so, take the shaft off again and try to seat the shaft as you gently pull on the rope. If you need further assistance, just let me know.
