Depends on your make and model.
Some are really easy, some impossible.
The easy ones go like this.
You remove the top of the motor, which is held on with a few screws. You will then have a bowl shaped piece, usually metal, which you will turn upside down, and see the cord-winder reel inside the top of it.
You will remove the cord winding reel, and wind a new cord onto it. However, the cord winding reel is spring loaded, and it takes knowledge and experience to do that.
The harder ones, I cannot begin to describe.
Be blessed.

The chord that you pull to turn the light on on the "Square Floor Lamp With Paper Shade And Shelves - Black" I accidently pulled out from pulling it too hard or the wrong way. How can I fix it?


Before anything ***UNPLUG UNIT FROM WALL***
Some lighting fixtures you can take apart, others you cannot. Turn the item upside down so you can see the lighting fixture. If you see that it has a few screws you can take it apart and replace the cord.
If not, take out the lighting fixture (one or two screws at the maximum) and go to Hobby Lobby or Michael's...something like these. They will have a similar product you can replace it with. It might not be te same, but if it is close then you should be able to affix it in your unit.

Broken pullcord . cord is missing how long should new cord be and how hard is it to replace


Just went through this pain today. Here's how I did it. Use allen wrench with T handle to remove the shroud over the carb controls and plug. Then remove about 10 screws and split the case. Use tool that comes with the unit to remove the nut holding the impeller. Behind the impeller, use torx head to get the other bolts to remove the motor. There are two other screws on the other side that hold the motor on. Drop the motor from the case carefully. It is still attached by wires to the throttle and kill switch. Note how the throttle linkage is connected because it will come apart for sure. On the one side of the housing you are looking at the plastic cord spool with the spring unit behind it. My chord simply pulled out of the spool. It was held on with a 10mm nut and start washer (not a good design). If the chord broke, remove the remnant from the take up spool. To rewind the new chord or replace the one that pulled free, you need to wind the spring to put tension on it. Make sure the take up spool engages with the spring tang otherwise it will turn free and not tense the sprint. Once engaged with the tang, the spool should set to the bottom to be level with the metal chord guide. Turn the spool clockwise 3-4 turns until you feel it tighten. With a 2nd pair of hands, hold the tension on the spool and tread in your chord. Route the chord through the take up reel into the hole on the side. Loosen the 10mm nut with the star washer and route the end of the chord through it. Tie a simple knot in the end to prevent it from pulling through. Tighten the 10mm nut which clamps on the chord. Now, slowly, let the spring tension take up the loose chord until fully retracted. Make sure the metal chord guide fits in the slot to channel the chord properly into the take up reel. Hold the spool down and give the chord a gentle test or two. The chord should retract easily and fully. Simple as pie!!! Reverse the disassembly and you are back in business.

I broke the pull cord on my generator; how do I


you should remove the housing usually 4 bolts
dont remove anything else then look at the pully and remove the old chord tie a knot in the new chord and slot it into the hole on the pulley
you should then see a notch in the edge of the pulley this is for the chord to sit in while you turn the pully enough times to tension the recoil spring once tensioned enough so that it recoils all the chord slot the chord through the hole in the outer casing through the pull hande and knot it job done then refit

Pull chord won't go back in


The Rip Starter pull cord? A sprin usually winds it back in automatically. If yours is running (or not) and cord is hanging out, the thin is jammed, the spring is broken or disconnected, or there is a bunch(!) of **** in there gumming it up.
Rap on it with a screwdriver handle, oil it, take it apart and see.

Power cord came out the back of the tv


1. Replace the power chord.

WARNING HIGH VOLTAGE: Do not attempt to work on your set without another person present who is trained in CPR

If the power chord is a plug in type , plug it back in.
if the power chord was ripped out , you need to repair it.
if the power chord was broken before you discovered it, you will also need to repair it.

I do mean a proper repair not just an electrical tape job.

Phono chord pins broken off


parties can be rough on audio gear
most turntables I've seen have male rca (phono) plugs on each end, but you have to get to the inside either by taking off the bottom or in some cases the body comes apart in two halves. If you get there and it turns out to be a solder on type (not likely) you can get the tails at radio shack. Most people with any audio equipment at all have an rca stereo pair lying around somewhere.
OR
if you can solder, you can just put new rca ends on the existing cable . Good luck.
at least he didn't break your needle
