SOURCE: seatbelt will not retract

You will need to remove the molding around the input slot for the belt.view the actual receiver and see if there is a lock that is preventing it from retracting.

SOURCE: how to repair broken pull-cord

This usually happens at the most inopportune time. You go out mow the lawn, pull the rope and it comes out in your hand. Here's how to fix it yourself.
First, we'll talk about a simple rope replacement. In most cases you will have to remove the blower housing from the engine to get to the underside of the rewind starter where the rope is. We'll assume at this point that the spring is ok and you can just wind it back up again. You can check the spring by turning on the hub in a counter-clockwise direction and see if the spring gains tension. Do not try to remove the spring from its holder or you may end up having to take the mower in for service.
1. Remove the rope from around the hub. Since there is no tension, it should come right out. If you are lucky and it broke near one end, you can probably just re-use it. If it is badly frayed or too short, you will need to find a replacement at a local hardware store.
2. Attach the handle or tie a knot in one end of the rope so it will not wind all the way into the hub. You also may want to burn the rope ends to keep them from fraying and causing a problem in the future. Set the rope aside where you can grab it once you wind up the spring.
3. Wind the hub in a counter-clockwise direction using your thumb to keep it from unwinding, until the spring is tight. Then let it come back slightly so the rope hole in the starter housing lines up with the rope hole in the hub.
4. Stick the rope through both holes while holding the hub from unwinding. This is tricky because you don't want the hub to unwind on you before you have the rope secured in it. A pair of needle nose pliers or a small screwdriver or pick may help get the rope through.
5. Tie a half hitch knot in the rope after you have it through both holes. While holding the rope, release your hold on the hub and let the rope slowly pull itself back into the starter.
6. Put the blower housing back on and your ready to start the engine & mow.

Easier than you might think. You need a screwdriver along with the sockets to remove the housing over the rewind assembly. Once you have the housing off and access to the assembly, remove the old cord by using it to wind the spring all the way out. Before you take the cord out slip a screwdriver in the slots to keep it from winding back up. If it does, it's not a concern. Just wind the spring back out by turning the rewind until it stops, then turn it back one turn until the holes line up for the cord. Stick the new cord through and tie it off, and let the spring pull the new cord in. If you need any help with it, hit me up.

SOURCE: broken pull cord install instructions

Hi there .
The only way to get to the starter on a EU3000IS is from the front of the machine .
You have to remove the plastic around the control panel , remove the control panel and the inverter and you be able to see the starter on the right side . To remove it is only 3 10mm bolts holding it in place . Make sure when you put it back is on the right place and pull the cord gently so the starter can sit .
Hope this help

Flywheel removal key crankshaft


Block the piston at bdc with a length of pullcord, then spin the nut on the flywheel, backin it off an 1/8 of a turn he. It bottoms out. Take the socket you used to loosen it, put it on the nut and give it a good whack. The flywheel should be loose.

Hard to analyze from your vague description, but I'm guessing this. FIRST OF ALL. NEVER TURN THE BLADE BY HAND WITHOUT DISCONNECTING THE SPARK PLUG. THE MACHINE CAN START AND CUT YOUR HAND OFF!!! That said, I'm guessing you hit something hard that stopped the blade. If your machine is functioning properly, then you probably broke off the timing key, which is under the flywheel on the crank shaft. If so, then you need to pull the flywheel and replace the key, which costs about $2 USD. If you don't have the means to remove the flywheel, then the repair is better left to a professional. If you do, you'll need a wheel/gear puller and get the flywheel off, after removing the top, pullcord assembly and then simply remove the broken key and replace it with the same. Hope this helps and good luck.

Either the pull string has un coupled or the little fingers that are part of the start assembly are not engaging the motor. If latter, you need new start assembly. Ouch.

I have a Proton car but I have never heard of a Proton radio.

As a matter of general interest, the flywheel tuning system was used on early radios before the superheterodyne system brought us agc lines and such sophistications. Selecting another station was a noisy business and flywheel tuning allowed the dial to be traversed quickly with a flick of the wrist. Those flywheels were heavy and mounted in ball bearings...

The trouble with trying to obtain spare parts for radios is mostly you can't. The manufacturer uses mostly bought-in standard electronic and hardware components and makes as little as possible, apart from the cabinet, the circuit boards and a few other bits and pieces and then will assemble what is generally regarded as a consumable item. The manufacturer's interest fades quickly when the warranty expires. Whatever (few) parts remain will be priced not to sell in order to build in obsolescence.
It is mostly expected that minor repairs will be handled by local repairers using standard parts until it becomes uneconomic or obsolete.

It might be possible to locate another plastic "flywheel" but searching would be a mammoth task. The number might not be a part number, might have been made by anyone and Proton is such a popular brand, model, type a search would not be easy.
The best alternative is to repair the original, adapt something else to do the same job or have a replacement made or devise another method of doing the same job.

Good Luck!

When the generator is running it got a rough sound comming from the pullcord area,not the motor area.motor sounds fine


The pull starter clutch is still partially engaged and needs to be repaired/spring replaced. It is grinding on the top of the flywheel teeth and will eventually wear down adn not allow you to pull start it.

Pull cord stuck


it sounds like the recoil spring in the "housing" is jammed( or something is broken) youll have to take this apart without breaking it. you may have internal engine damage if it was unusually hot and the pullcord jammed. try using a richer oil mixture for fuel also if you fix the pullcord. hope this helps, keep me posted.

Generator will not generate electricity.


I assume it is a hand start genset. The most common problem if it has been sat for a while is rust on the ignition timing flywheel. If you take the pullcord housing off (recoil) then you will see a big flywheel with what can only be described as a big forked prong with a couple of wires on it. This flywheel should be stainless steel and rusts when sat around for a while without use. Its job is to complete the circuit to the spark plug every time the flywheel passes the forked prong at a given spot on the flywheel, the faster the wheel turns the faster the spark hence the engine runs quicker. Clean the rust off with a releasing agent (wd 40) hey presto!!!!!!!!!!!
