This requires a bit of strength in the hands and the recoil will have a fair amount of tension behind it. Best have a small engine service center look at. Not expensive

Assuming the rope stays on the internal pulley, it is NORMAL for the rope to require great force at points in the cranking cycle (once per revolution of the crankshaft). These are the compression strokes and the force is MANY times the initial pulling force. If the rope returns easily, then the starter assembly is probably normal. It takes a strong arm and fast movement to start the enginess via pull rope. Some units have a compression release to ease this a bit.

I got one of these pieces of junk, and had same problem you described.
You will need to remove the end panel to get to the blower housing. You will have to thread the rope through the handle until you have enough slack to remove the rope from the handle. The end panel should now be free to remove entirely.
Find the 3 bolts that hold the blower housing on, and remove them. Once you get it off, make sure that the rope has a knot in it so it won't get retracted into the pulley recoil assembly. Take a screwdriver and push the rope back down into the pulley (that was my problem). Assembly is opposite of taking apart.

SOURCE: how can i convert the
Yes you can install an electric starter on your generator if the following conditions are present. Starter/fan cover has cutout for starter, the flywheel has ring gear and block has taped holes to mount starter. Examine the engine where the starter would normally be installed (look at a generator like yours with the same motor that has the starter installed ) and check that the mounting holes are there and threaded to receive the bolts. If threaded holes to mount are there and access thru starter cover to flywheel is there, check that the flywheel has a ring gear where starter motor engages. If all present starter can be installed however you will not have the charging coil which is normally under the flywheel to charge battery; but you can still use the generator to charge the battery. To locate parts, use model number of the engine not the generator. Good Luck

SOURCE: Want to add electric start
To determine if an electric starter can be installed, begin with the model number and type of engine. The engine model number (not generator number) will clue you in on the availability of accessories. In order for a starter to work on your engine, there needs to be mounting holes drilled and taped onto the back of the block to mount the starter. Also necessary is a ring gear on the flywheel and a knock-out plate on the fan cover to allow the nose of the starter into the cover. For reference, find a dealer near you that has the same type of engine with a starter already installed so that you can see the differences. Good luck of upgrading.
