Either the recoil needs repair or the motor is frozen and needs to be replaced.

I have a Briggs & Stratton 5500 watts generator that I hardly pull the rope for start, begins stuck then its loosen again and again gets too hard to pull, any suggestions please help


If the unit is older it could have heavy carbon in the cylinder heads, it could be a ring sticking and binding, do a compression test. Compression is high or mechanical binding.

sounds like bad compression rings on your piston try taking out the spark plug and then try pulling the rope if that works take an air compressor and check how much psi their is in the chain saw i believe i should have up to 150psi

My craftsman garage door opener gets stuck when closing and always goes back up


Release the door from the opener by pulling down on the rope. Then you can operate the door by hand and see what is binding.

CRANK ROPE IS IN A BIND OR STUCK


Hi, if you remove the recoil housing you have a good chance of freeing the rope if it's bound. Try pulling the rope to see where it's tangled and use a screw driver to pry it loose. Good luck.

Remove the tube that holds the flex-drive shaft from the front of the motor cover.Remove the rear engine cover. Remove the throttle cable from the carburetor. Mark and unplug any wires for the on/off switch that go to the ignition coil (underneath front cover) if possible. Now if you have pulled the driveshaft tube out of the way, the clutch drum is up next. Inside it, screwed into the very end of the engine's crankshaft is a Torx #25 screw. Before you loosen it, you will have to lock up the engine. To do so, remove the spark plug. Pull on the starter until the piston is down, then insert a length of clean, soft rope into the engine. The engine will come up and compress the rope, thus locking it in place to allow clutch drum and clutch removal. Loosen the T-25 screw inside the drum.. You may be able to remove it with a long thin-blade screwdriver also.It probably won't come completely out...it is made this way. Next, remove the clutch. It is screwed onto a small threaded section of the crankshaft Removal is counterclockwise.. It will be pretty tight. To help, apply peneterating oil. Whack the ears of the clutch near the center with a dull flat-blade chisel and hammer unless there are bolts. then use wrench. It will turn counterclockwise for removal and there will probably be a removal direction arrow on it's face. After getting that off, remove the Torx screws holding the cover to the engine. The starter unit should be mounted inside as it mates with the top of the flywheel to start the motor. Remember to preload tension (5-7 turns) on the starter unit. Make sure the handle is installed. Jam the unit with a screwdriver or vise grips so you can insert and tie off the new rope. Then remove jam device and let recoil pull your new rope into place while holding the handle. Reassemble and you are done. Disassembly requires Torx head drivers or a good flat-blade screwdriver.

Replacing start rope of the b&s model # 120600


Take off the three-four bolts holding on the starter cover and lift it off the engine. Make sure you dont leave the oil dipper attached too.
Remove its bolt at the cover so it doesnt come out of the engine block and make a mess.

Flip the cover over and you should see the pulley the rope rides in. Pull out the broken end piece of the rope from the inside-center of this pulley. Get a new piece of rope from a power equipment store. Make sure you get enough to cover the length needed to make it all the way out to the handle! Snake into the recoil cover from the outside hole into the pulley *(you align the pulley with the hole in the cover) with small needle nose pliers you can pick the rope through the pulley hole and then tie a knot to secure this end of things. A butane lighter is good to use on the frayed end to "melt lock" it. Nothing crazy now...just melt the tip where you see the frayed material.

Then put the t handle on the other end and tie it off too. Also melt the frayed end before pulling the rope into the t handle.

Now that the rope is in place all you need to do is prewind the pulley. This is done by using a small section of the rope near the pulley to turn it in the direction of starting about 6-8 turns and then carefully release the pulley so it winds the rope onto it. You can do this slowly by keeping tension on the T handle and slowly walking it into the starter cover. Be careful. You dont want to get your fingers caught on anything spinning or pulling here. The rope will be twisted so the person holding tension on the rope can help by untwisting the rope so it can rewind smoothly.

That is about it. You can then pull the rope a few times to make sure you put enough prewind on it so the rope doesnt stop pulling even though you have more rope to pull *(this is to prevent causing the recoil spring binding from insufficient prewinding)

Put the recoil cover back on. Put the t handle back into the fixture on the mower handle. Thats it! Start her up and go cut some grass!

Good luck and be careful!

Rope will not retract.


I am assuming you tried to pull start and the rope is stuck out. Just try pulling the rope while it is out, but stand on the hedge trimmer. Sometimes when this happens to me, I just pull the rope a little extra and then hang onto it when it goes back in. Alot of times, I think the rope gets caught on the outside of the retraction pulley causing a tangle.

The rope on my generator gets stuck as i pull to turn it on


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.

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.
