Remove battery terminals and clean both posts and terminals
with sandpaper until you see shiny metal. The black coating is lead sulphate which has a high resistance to current flow both into and out of the battery.. Have a load test done on the battery to check for dead cell. Maybe all it needs is a full charge.

What causes the starter assist spring to deform after just first time starting chainsaw on a Poulan Pro pp5929av

The spring is designed to assist the starting. Over pulling or quick "yanks" on the starter rope can deform the spring. Best tactic, pull lightly until the starter pawls engage, then briskly pull the starter rope.

Putting new pull rope on my 4500 champion 4500 generator

The recoil starter can usually be unbolted from the engine for service. If you can retrieve the end of the broken rope, and you know how long the new rope should be, you can tape or stitch the new rope to the end of the old rope, then pull on the knotted end of the old rope to pull it out of the starter and draw the new one in. If this won't work (the old rope may be too rotted to hold together, or the pull force to wind the rope around in the starter is too much), you'll have to take the starter apart. This is nasty because you have to get the spring properly engaged with the frame and the starter plate when you put it back together, and there may be an element of personal hazard if there is tension on the spring. You may want to have the starter plate on the bottom when you lift off the cover, hopefully this will prevent everything from spilling out before you get a chance to see how it goes together. Wear safety glasses and leather gloves. Wearing a padded jacket or heavy-duty shop apron may also be a good idea.

Check whether the handle on the new rope requires the rope to be fed through its opening in the starter, and be sure it goes it is wound in the same direction as the original rope. Also, you want just enough tension on the spring to hold the rope handle up against the starter without flopping around, but not so much that the spring winds up too tight before you get to the stop with the rope pulled all the way out.

You may wish to take the starter unit to a small engine shop and pay them to wind on a new rope. :)

These are the considerations I've observed when looking over recoil starters - someone may have more detailed information on your model.

Finally, evaluate the storage conditions for the generator. A good rope should last a long time; perhaps excessive humidity, chemical fumes or exposure to UV radiation rotted out the rope. Did you put oil in the cylinder per the long-term storage instructions (Page 14 of the manual)? If not, that could result in excessive pull force. You may be able to free up the generator by removing the spark plug, putting a small amount of lightweight oil, turning over the generator using the starter spline shaft (be careful not to damage the shaft with tools, and observe which direction it's supposed to rotate when the recoil starter lets go), Change the oil if you have to use something lighter than recommended to get sticky parts loosened.

Here's a link for the manual (Page 14 is actually page 17 in the PDF viewer):

I have a 3hp briggs & stratton//the pull rope pulls freely//it does not engage the engine and turn the engine over

You probably need to replace the starter recoil. This is not a very expensive fix. Just be aware that this problem is usually caused by having to pull the starter rope excessively because of some other starting problem. Once you replace the recoil, keep your engine running properly.

Toro Electric Start Problem

Remove spark plug and observe condition. Fouled with oil, bad motor. With plug removed pull rope several times to blow out cylinder. Spray WD40 in spark plug hole, pull rope several times see if oil blows out. Spray a lot of starter fluid in spark plug hole, replace plug. Spray starter fluid in air cleaner area of carb, try to start. Replace spark plug, try to start. Ensure oil is full, all mowers have a low oil sensor now. 30w oil. Always use Stabile in gas.

When pulling rope it clicks

This is a problem with either the starter pulley ( rope pulley) if the corners are worn it will not engage with the pawls, or the pawl/pawls them selves have worn

Yamaha 1997 warior will not start with the starter but will start when you pull start it.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, externally charge the battery and have it load tested. This is to eliminate the chance of a weakening battery.

Offhand, check the starter relay. When the start button is pressed, the relay should click and provide contact to the starter motor. To locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the battery's + terminal.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

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.

Starter cord will not rewind after being replaced. The string will rewind in the housing before it is attached to the motor but not after being attached. How do you pre wind the springs?

What I do is the following:

Remove the old rope ( what is left of it)

Wind the starter rope pulley about 8 or 9 complete revolutions after I am confident that the spring has engaged the starter pulley

Hold the pulley in place ( align the rope hole in the pulley with hole in the starter housing

Insert the rope and tie a knot, pull the rope back tight against the pulley

Pull the rope all the way out and hold slight tension on the rope and release the tension on the pulley but still holding the starter housing

Starter spring should pull rope into housing... good luck
