Danny by the pull cord on the back are two wings that come out when you pull the starter. They are on springs and fly out to grab the wheel. Spray these with lube oil and then let them rest for 10 mins then try.

How do u fix a loose starter cord people?


Hi Rick:
Most starter cords rely on a recoil spring to make them retract.
Sometimes when the cord is replaced it is longer than the original so just needs to be shortened. Pull the cord all the way out and if you have way more than you use for a pull start, then shortening it is a fast fix.
To do that, pull out the cord a couple of feet. flip a slip knot in it to keep it from retracting, then take the start handle apart and shorten the cord about 6 inches. Should work fine.
If the cord is talready too short to make it shorter, you'll need to put another wind on the spring.
Reply as a COMMENT to this post af you need coaching through that.
Hint. Don't dismantle the spring assembly so it can get out. They are related to rattlesnakes.
Cheers.

How do I fix the pull string on a push mower?


Hi Barbara:
The pull start assembly is usually attached by 3 or 4 bolts.
Start by removing it. Depending on where the pull cord broke, you may be able to use it shortened a bit, but replacement is probably a good idea.
There is a spring inside the thing the cord winds around (spool)that retracts it after you've pulled on it. The tricky part is making sure that the spring is wound up enough after you've installed the replacement cord.
Look at the way the old cord is installed. If you can, grab it with some pointy pliers and pull it all the way out, winding up the spring tension at the same time. There should be a way to hold the spool (look for a hole you can slip the end of a nail into) so you can change the cord. Then Take the nail out and make sure the cord retracts all the way.
Next step is to re-install it on the mower.
Cheerfuls!

Pull cord binding when mounted on engine but not when removed from engine


When you assemble the Recoil Starter, push it down onto the blower easily and then pull the cord slowly. It should drop into position as you slowly pull the cord.

I have a walk behind lawn mower. The pull cord says easy pull, but it is not easy, and will not pull.


Just take it back for replacement.....it is not supposed to be like that so get it back to the shop!

My Makita circular power saw works then stops working, then starts again. Why is this happening?


Things to check: With the saw running, safely grab the cord by the boot and pull and twist it around. This is where a break frequently occurs inside the cord and when the saw is held in certain positions the break will either open or close. If the cord's OK, unplug the saw and remove the brush caps and check the brushes. If the brushes are less than 1/4" long or the springs are burnt or broke they won't make good contact with the armature. If the cord & brushes are OK your next recourse is to replace the switch (Makita PN 651172-0).

Crank pull cord doesn't pull out on honda pressure washer.. The machine is only 3 months old


if the fuel tap has been left on it may have fuel on top of the cylinder and would not able to pull cord.
if so take the spark plug out and turn over,fuel may come out of hole.replace spark plug and try to start. if it still won't turn over,you will need to take the face plate off the motor. remove and inspect if there is any foreign objects. try to turn motor over by hand., grab on to fly wheel & turn. if it moves freely it may be the pull start it-self. try pulling the cord out. if no problem assemble and try to start.

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,

Chainsaw won't start


Time to get out your trusty tool kit. Remove the side cover assembly and look at the recoil assembly. You should see a pair of fingers that when you pull the cord move toward the center. If the fingers are there and not broken, make sure they move when you pull the cord. clean them if dirty or have foreign objects (like sawdust) around them. If the fingers are broken, replace them. You should be able to purchase them from your local saw shop.
