SOURCE: ard Broom leaf blower, pull rope problem

Hi,

Like most mechanical problems, your concern would require the disassembly for visual inspection. Offhand, the problem could be a loose nut or lock. If you have not performed a similar repair before, then perhaps it is best for you to make use of a repair manual or at least an exploded diagram to give you an idea how the parts are interconnected. If you would be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), then perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

A simplified repair sheet may be of additional help.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: can't start my leaf blower

You might have damaged the "spring re-wind" or the cord is jambed. If you know how to disassemble the housing (see owner's manual), then check to see if the cord is stuck, then manually re-wind it and pull it slowly and then let it rewind slowly. Do not attempt to remove the spring housing unless you have several hours to spare to rewind the spring, as it will "unspring" with great force - all over the place. Zing! The only other solution, of course, is to take it back to Sears for repair. Yuck. Have had several in the shop for other reasons that couldn't be easily DIY repaired - time after time.

Most ****-smen products cause more headaches than they prompt smiles of joy. I have pretty much determined that the manufacturers of ****-smen (who ever they are) plan it that way. Most home-owner products of this sort only last for 3-4 years, if you're lucky. I have also tried other brands; none are much to rave about. You could always do what I do, if I don't have any warrantee time left, or an extended agreement; give it a nice funeral (or run over it with a tank and send the remains to the CEO of Sears) and spend the money for a new one (any brand - even Craps-men) or use a rake..... :(

If you do get it to work, try pulling the cord with less force and NEVER let it "spring back" by letting go of the handle. Let is rewind as you hold it. GOOD LUCK!

SOURCE: pull rope broke

This usually happens at the most inopportune time. You go out mow the lawn, pull the rope and it comes out in your hand. Here's how to fix it yourself.
First, we'll talk about a simple rope replacement. In most cases you will have to remove the blower housing from the engine to get to the underside of the rewind starter where the rope is. We'll assume at this point that the spring is ok and you can just wind it back up again. You can check the spring by turning on the hub in a counter-clockwise direction and see if the spring gains tension. Do not try to remove the spring from its holder or you may end up having to take the mower in for service.
1. Remove the rope from around the hub. Since there is no tension, it should come right out. If you are lucky and it broke near one end, you can probably just re-use it. If it is badly frayed or too short, you will need to find a replacement at a local hardware store.
2. Attach the handle or tie a knot in one end of the rope so it will not wind all the way into the hub. You also may want to burn the rope ends to keep them from fraying and causing a problem in the future. Set the rope aside where you can grab it once you wind up the spring.
3. Wind the hub in a counter-clockwise direction using your thumb to keep it from unwinding, until the spring is tight. Then let it come back slightly so the rope hole in the starter housing lines up with the rope hole in the hub.
4. Stick the rope through both holes while holding the hub from unwinding. This is tricky because you don't want the hub to unwind on you before you have the rope secured in it. A pair of needle nose pliers or a small screwdriver or pick may help get the rope through.
5. Tie a half hitch knot in the rope after you have it through both holes. While holding the rope, release your hold on the hub and let the rope slowly pull itself back into the starter.
6. Put the blower housing back on and your ready to start the engine & mow.

To start: turn the choke off, hold the throttle wide open and crank. You have a carb problem but this should get you going. John

How can I fix the starter cord on my ryobi back pack blower?


Rope has probably wedged somewhere. You will need to remove covers to get access to the rope pully and free it up. You may find that a new replacement rope is needed to correct the problem and prevent it's "catching" later. Now is a good time to replace with new.

Pull cord for starter is not catching?


There are starter pawls that catch the flywheel when the rope is pulled. They are plastic. You will need to disassemble the unit and remove the starter assembly to inspect the pawls.

Stihl backpack blower starter rope is pulling harder and harder. When it dose pull it starts right up.


See if your rope pulley is opening up and allowing rope to double over on itself.When this happens the rope will wedge in pulley causing it to pull hard.

Someone ran gas instead of 2-cycle in leaf-blower; now locked up


It's probably dead. If the rope won't pull buy another and keep it for parts, the repair bill will be more than it costs. Spray some wd- 40 in the spark plug hole and let it sit for a couple days, IF it frees up you got lucky but don't expect it.
