Without a tool for it, its slow and difficult. Put the hook on it in the little opening in its hub. Wind it in an inch at a time. Be careful. It will probably fly out a couple of times on-till you get it right. Don't let it hit you in the face. Good luck. Also, watch the way the rope pulls to wind it in the right direction.

SOURCE: spring replacement

Replacing the spring on this tiller can be tough. You have to get the tension spring set into the stop and partially wind the tension (by turning the cord pulley) and THEN attach the cord before completing winding the tension spring. It took me about an hour to figure out how much preset of tension was needed before I was able to get it to work. You have to partially preset tension because starting from zero will not fully rewind the cord.

How do I replace a pull cord for pm 605 mcculloch chainsaw?


First remove the pull starter housing.
The next part is tricky. You'll have to release and unwind the spring that rewinds the pull starter cord. Remember how you do this because after replacing the cord, you'll have to rewind the cord and spring before inserting it back in the housing.
re-attach the pull cord housing to the chain saw.
Hope this helps.

Take off the spring coil mechanism. It has either unwound or got caught. You need to take it out and rewind the spring so that it will pull the cord in.

My Craftsman lawn mower starter cord doesn't retract after mower starts.


I have had this situation before on a lawnmower. I didn't have a craftsman, but is probably the same issue. Basically, the spring that recoils the cord back in either broke or came unwound. When the mower is not running, the cogs on the pull chord keeps the cord from coming out. When the mower is running, the spring is not wound enough to hold the chord in and thus releases or doesn't hold it in.
Try pulling the pull chord assembly off and rewind the spring.

The pull cord has com undone an the coil spring unwound


Did the cord break or just have an end knot pull out. If a knot pulled out, it will help to melt the cord end with a match or lighter and make a small lump which helps keep the knot from undoing (make sure not to use the open flame near the fuel!). Rewind the spring first, then fit the cord and work it around the outside of the spool while wedging it to keep it from unwinding again. Check by pulling it through and watching for uniform movement of the cord. The spring should never completely wind up and bind. Hope this helps!

Pull cord broke on my craftsman gas push edger. I replaced cord but when I pull cord..It wont rewind but I can hear it trying to start


It sounds like you did not properly rewind the spring that is behind the spool that the cord would around, that spring is what rewinds the cord after pulling the cord.

Pull cord stuck in the out position


this can be caused by sevral things inside the pull cord hub assembly. examples: Dirty inside & needs taken apart & cleaned. something logged inside, plastic spool tabs broke, spring/s broke, levers broke or any of these items could just be to worn. replacement parts should be available.

Cord winder not working


Most times you will have to replace the cord rewind. Sometimes just the cord, but usually there is a problem with thr reel contacts. But now that the spring has unwound, you will have to replace it. You will need model number rather then Red Star.
