    the model I have is a robyi RLT30CES...I have removed the trimmer and shaft but there does not appear to be a screw holding on the bell housing........i can see the spring you speak of but it is held on by what can only be described as a propeller shaped piece with no obvious way of removing this...there is no screw for th T20 tork screwdriver to fit to.... have i missed something or is my version of strimmer differnt from the ones you have described

  • invictus59 May 04, 2009

    i did not shoot any messanger. so why the smart remark, I just informed you of the fact that my strimmer was diferent to what you described.. your solution would have been good if my strimmer was the one you described but as it was not your soulution was useless

  • Sedge68 May 12, 2009

    Just a comment - you will definitely need a T20 Torx screwdriver, not just a nut driver with a T20 bit, as you need to get it down the shaft in the center about an inch in order to get to that little Torx screw. An allen key will NOT work, although if you had a Torx key, you might be able to get it. If you don't think there's a screw down there, poke a 3mm allen key down there, and it will definitely want to grab, but not enough to remove the screw. Off to the tool store now to get a T20 screwdriver, as my nut driver sets are useless.

SOURCE: broken pull cord

ur going to have to unmount the the motor from the shaft

step 1. Unbolt throttle housing

step 2. now with that out of the way u should see a clamp holding the motor to the shaft, loosen and pull the shaft out, there will be a cable, so make sure u have it lined up so it goes back into place

step 3, look at the back of the motor, u should see screws going into the plastic housing (coming in from back going into plastic)

step 4. once that is off pull the broken part of the cord out

step 5. wind up the starter coil, (it will only wind up one way) its spring loaded so be carful, once it stops back it off 1 full turn

step 6. u will see a hole for the cord in the housing and in the coil, make sure they are lined up

step 7. insert the cord through both holes, tie it as tighttttt as possible, then let the spring do the rest

step 8. put it back together

SOURCE: broken pull cord

You have to take four allen screw out of the plastic that holds the engine on. There is also one by the spark plug that needs to come out. Once the engine is loose, you have to unplug one wire and unscrew the other. Then the engine should come off. Then loosen the two allen screws holding the pulley in and it will come out.

SOURCE: Replacing pull cord on weedeater

there is another t20 screw in the neck of the drum. once removed you will expose the drive clutch. soak it good with WD40 then unscrew it from the shaft. if you have all the housing screws out, you should be able to simply remove the housing to expose the pull cord assembly, screwed to housing.

SOURCE: The Pull cord was jamming. I took it apart and

the rope and spring both have thier respective place in the housing for thier mountings they can be rewound by hand and reassembled with success,hint oppisite end of spring has a anchor point on the housing while one end is secured by a cup like screw mounting,to create the retracting force for retrival of the pull start rope its tricky if haven't done it before but you learn by trying Good luck Steve

SOURCE: cannot undo nut on bottom of Strimmer

Make sure you are turning the nut to the right to loosen, if you are already doing that but cannot hold the line head still to loosen the nut some feature a hole to insert a screwdriver or pin (supplied with the trimmer) or if yours does not have that: use a nylon strap or even a leather belt to wrap around the head, and then clamp the loose end in a vise or quick clamps and it will hold it in place well enough to loosen the bolt.

The manual recoil starter I pulled starter slowly two or three times and then cord was loose no resistance what is the problem?


Sounds like the starter drive is jammed. Look for a large cog azt the back of the starter cord on the motor, manually push it in the opposite direction to the spin created when the cord is pulled.

Edging when heard a loud pop like a spring or cable broke while running at high rpm's, engine shut down.....now starter cord pulls freely. what's wrong?


Hi William:
This is fun because it's already broken so you can't easily make it worse.
I'd start by making a clear spot on the workbench and then start taking it apart. Label the parts, keep them organized, and maybe even take a few pictures as you progress.
Think of it as fun. Every bit you remove has a purpose, so try to check the functions as you go. When something doesn't do what you think it should, you've probably found the problem.

Starting up Ryobi Petrol Strimmer


full choke on , push petrol bubble 5 times then pull starter cord., with luck it will kick in to life after a 20/30 secs put on half choke , run again for 30 secs the no ckoke.

The main problem with Ryobi products is that they flood very very easly. So the more time you try and pump petrol into the carb the more it will flood . If that happenes then choke off and switch off and then just pull starter cord for about 30 secs then switch on and it could start if not prime it again as above good luck

Starter cord jammed on my mcculloch cabrio 433l strimmer, only pulling a few inches


First remove the spark plug and see if the starter can be pulled without the plug in place. If it cannot, any job that involves a recoil starter is a messy frustrating job, and if you had to put a price on the hassle that it is, it is probably better to pay somebody else to do it. That said, remove the starter cover with the cord and pulley inside. If there is a plate holding down the cord pulley, remove it and carefully lift out the pulley, try not to dislodge the recoil spring as this is where the frustration part comes in. Check the cord is not off the pulley or is frayed and caught on something. See if the starter will operate when it is removed from the motor.
If you need to renew the cord, insert the new cord end into the hole and copy the old knot - pass the other end of the cord through the eyelet in the cover. N.B. At this time take note of the direction that the recoil spring coil is orientated. Wind about 3/4 of the cord around the pulley and attach the start handle to the outside end of the cord. Carefully fit the pulley over the spring and place the cord into the cutout in the pulley. Wind up the pulley so that it engages in the curl in the inside of the recoil spring and further wind up the pulley in the opposite direction of the normal pulley start pull, holding the cord in the little cut-out so that the cord does not wind up as you wind the spring. It probably takes about 5 extra turns on the pulley to get the recoil tension right. Always hold the pulley in place to prevent the spring from jumping out. Release the cord so it can retract and replace the retaining plate. This is all if the spring does not jump out - which it so often does.
If the spring jumps out, hold it by the inside portion and start winding it up, pulling it tight to keep the coil small enough to fit back into its receptacle, . Once the spring is wound up and will fit into its position the problem starts. I found that gripping the spring with an alligator jaw vice grip will allow you to replace the spring and carefully release it without it going wild again, engaging the outer hook in its retaining slot or around its peg. Trying to feed the spring into position coil by coil seldom works, it has to be wound up outside and then inserted, especially on a small motor.
This procedure is as difficult to explain as it is to carry out. I have done many cord replacements and always dread the next one. If you have any problems, feel free to come back to me.

I have a Troy Bilt Weedeater Model # TB415CS Here is the problem my wife decided to use this unit while I was at work one day and broke it. When I go throught the start up routine and go to pull the start...


If the rope recoils back into the starter, at least the starter spring is not broken...but...if you can break the unit down to where you can get a good look at it, you may find that the ratchets on the starter pulley are not engaging with the pawls on the flywheel...The pawls are spring loaded so they engage and then drop out of the way when starting, See if you can break the machine down to that point and post back,

How to sort broken pull cord on petrol strimmer


Hi Baz, i will tell you a generic way of doing this as i don't know the model of your strimmer.
on the pull cord housing you will have 3 or 4 screws to secure the housing to the motor body, undo these. the housing will lift away from the main motor body, underneath this cover you will see a spring canister, there may be a screw or clip keeping this in place or some are just secured with the outcover. remove this canister you should see a coil spring in the middle and a groove around the outside where the cord goes. you should see a knot inside the cord grove where the cord is threaded through to secure, remove thisand remove old cord. Now the trickky bit! some times it helps to have a helping had, you will need to turn the coil spring so it tights up to its full tightness, then thread the new cord into the secureing hole where the old cord was located, then when you release the spring this will coil the cord round the cord groove. replace the pull handle on the end of the cord so there is no slack and replace on to motor in reverse order. Hope this helps.

Strimmer Starter strip


You will need to take the housing off to expose the rewind mechanism. The most likely cause will be a broken rewind spring. Go on the WEB and search for your model and a part list. Locate the spring and order it. Once you install the spring, you will need to pre-tension the spring by by pulling the cord part way out and ciol it on the spool. Good luck
