If you have ever had a dripping air conditioner. Whether the dripping sound was making it difficult to sleep or concentrate. Or maybe the dripping is making a mess on the side of your home. Splashing dirt or making rust stains on your siding. This is a remedy I always use.
Go outside the house and figure out where the drip is exiting the unit. Also, measure the distance from the place of the drip to the ground.
You will need a piece of rope or heavy string and some sort of super glue or a glue gun.
Make the rope or string long enough to be close to the ground but not touching the ground when measured from the point of the drip. Allowing the string or rope to touch the ground will give small pests an opportunity to climb into your AC and possibly your home. If you don't have rope or string an old shoe lace will work.
Glue the rope to the unit at the place of the drip, so that the water will soak into and follow the string QUIETLY and CLEANLY to the ground. I also like to tie a large fishing sinker on the end to keep the wind from displacing my string.
If you run the string into a bucket and if it is humid enough. It can quite easily provide enough water to supply flowers or a small garden. Enjoy.
It absolutely is fixable, type restring patio umbrella into your search engine and look at several of the YouTube videos detailing how it can be fixed. The hardest part may be to source the string, why not contact the manufactures and ask if they can supply it. As an additional note you need to make sure all the moving bits work properly and are lubricated not sticking, the string may have broken due to excessive force being needed because all was not as friction free as it should be. http://wwww.dayva.com/contact
Pull recoil and remove screw holding the string pulley. There's a spring behind it. Find where it hooks to the housing bend it to latch. This is what broke loose. Now wind it all into the designated spot. Attach string pulley and CAREFULLY put back together. Finally wind up insert rope and let it retract. This is a very difficult and frustrating job.
Take the cover off and look under it, you should see a plastic round disc that the rope winds on, You will need to locate the string and get it out of the cover where it passes through,once this is done, you will have to turn the disc the correct way to tighten spring ( you should be able to feel the pressure building as you turn, if not go other way, or the spring is broke, in wich case you need parts. If all is well, when you feel tension on it and have enough....not to much...just think about how much pull you had before it broke,because when the rope comes out it gets tighter towards full pull of rope, HOLD tension and put string through the hole on cover, once you have it through tie your handle back on, you should be able to release and jossle to get the rope back in the groove, Place on machine and see if you have enough tension that it will retract in cover when pulled and let go, if it does not you will have to repeat procedure, and tighten spring.....Do not get carried away with the loading of the spring......TIP you can shorten string if you just lack a little bit of it retracting in cover because it gets tighter when pulled out....Good Luck!
1) Remove the recoil housing **NOTE: normally you DO NOT need to remove the rotor pulley or spring to replace the rope. This is the area that causes so many guys a lot of extra trouble!
2) Locate the string that is left and the hole it is threaded thru
3) Determine how much string has broken off of the rope that came out *Note: if more than 1 inch is left, then the rope needs to be replaced
4) Obtained a length of rope appropriate for your engine, it is always better to have too much rope. You can always shorten if it is too long. Make sure both ends are melted to a point for easier threading thru handle and rope rotor
5) Wind the rotor in the direction of what the rope would pull, (this will tighten the spring) until the spring is completely wound. Remove 1/2 to 1 revolution.
6) Install the rope (with the handle installed on one end) thru the recoil housing and towards the rope rotor. Tie a knot in the end of the rope, leaving a 3/8" tail free. Then allow rope to wind onto the rotor until all rope is wound.
8) Pull the rope several times to position rope properly into rotor. *note : there should be NO droop in the handle after released
9) When the unit is functioning proplerly, re-install housing onto engine.
when the rope broke you first must rewind sring and load tension on it first then install spring while it is underload clamp with vise grips until string is fed through then release slowly allowing string to recoil
Yes, it is possible that the spring needs to be pre-tensioned. its also possible that something was put together a little out of alignment, or some part is too tight and its too hard for the spring to wind in the chord. try to reassemble the chainsaw with a couple more turns on the spring and see if that helps.
