Question about Troy Garden
Hi, your terminology is correct. its a recoil mechanism. the will happen when the spring loaded(coil spring) system fails. there is a coil that is tightened within the re coil shield when you pull the rope to start the engine. there is also a safety clip that will become unstable over time. this clip, when broken or weak, will extent a couple of inches over time and it will catch the coil upon returning to its oringial state(recoiling action after you pull the rope and it comes back in the coil housing). when this happens, the force will shatter the clip and jammed the entire mechanism. this is the current state as is. the rope Will not retract.
Unfortunately, you will have to replace the mechanism and the coil spring.before the retraction will operate once more. this type of damage to the recoil system, will render the Tiller inoperable. I don't not recommend running the tiller with this failed mech. it could cause pull back that will pull your arm out of socket and it could damage the block as well.
You can try to adjust or recoil the rope by releasing the broken clip. to do this , you will have to remove a few screws form the starter shield that the recoil mech is housed in. this will slide of the tiller motor once the screws are relieved. once the shield is relieved, you can remove the failed spring disc and manually retract the rope. this Will only provide one good pull for the start attempt and be sure to let go of the rope after it is fully extend. if not, it will pull it back really hard.

I believe the float is sticking on carb. Try tapping on it lightly with a wrench and it will retract.
