SOURCE: WeedEater Edger PE550 Starter Rope will not recoil

Order a new recoil spring from your suppier. It comes wound up. Remove the old part first usually four screws on the outside. Make sure the rope is fully wound then insert the new spring and reassamble. If it becomes unwound by mistake its a labourious job to rewind but can be done.

OK, this is a pretty simple fix, if you have 3 hands. What happened when the rope broke is that it allowed the recoil spring to unwind. You need to take the housing off again, put the rope back inside the housing. You then need to turn the big pulley that the rope wraps onto in the same direction as it would turn when you pull the rope. You probably need to turn it 6-8 times at least. Once you get this done, you need to hold the pulley secure and feed the rope thru the housing again, put the handle back on the rope. This last step is where the 3rd hand comes in very handy! This should get you back in business.

How do i replace a starter rope on a briggsand stratton lawn mower


Remove the 3 nuts holding the recoil assembly to the flywheel. Observe how the old rope is attached and wound. Rope is sold by the foot at mower repair shops. 3-4 ft should do. The rope is held in the recoil assembly by a knot and held in the handle by a knot.

Lawn mover starter rope replacement


most starters can be taken off the engine and replace the rope without completely tearing the whole unit apart. by that I mean you should not have to mess with the recoil spring unless it is broken. remove old rope from pulley, wind up the pulley and hold it so it wont unwind, replace new rope onto pulley and tie a good knot and melt the ends of the rope so it wont unravel, then slowly let the pulley retract the correct amount of rope. if the recoil spring has unsprung on you, it will take a little time and probably several tries to wind it back up and position it back in the starter. they like to unspring while doing this so take some time and an extra person to hold and assist might go a long ways. good luck.

Pull string won;t recoil


The recoil spring has broken. These are available at any lawn mower parts supply store. The process of changing the spring is tedious but can be done by anyone with average mechanical ability. If you removed the recoil assy (and air shroud if it is riveted on) and took the assembly to a Lawn Mower Repair shop usually they will change out the spring while you wait. If you can't get the recoil assy off take the mower with you to the repair shop. Again most shops will fix it while you if wait but if they are very busy usually they are serviced within 24 hours.

If you do attempt this yourself check in the tips section of FixYa on how to change the recoil stater rope after replacement of the spring.

I highly recommend you replace the pull rope at the time of the recoil spring replacement.

One final note... there is a possibility that the pull rope spool has been damaged where the spring attaches.

Thanks for using FixYa,

How do you replace the starter cord for lawn mower?


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

You will have to remove the recoil assy if it can be removed without the air shroud or the entire upper engine cover / air shroud with the recoil. This procedure should be performed by 2 people that at NOT distracted.

First you will have to have a replacement rope. Burn the end of the new rope your going to install into the spool and pinch it so that the end is smaller than the rope and pointed. Install the pull handle on the new rope and make sure there is a good single knot on the end of the rope that goes into the pull handle.

Next you will have to remove all pieces of the old starter rope.
Then you have to pre-wind the spring of the recoil so that if you were to allow it to turn it would turn in a direction that would pull the starter rope onto the recoil spool
NOTE: Once the pre-wind is done if anyone lets go of the spool it can DAMAGE the recoil spring When your prewinding... Turn the spool until snugs and does not want to move anymore. Then back off the spool until the rope KNOT hole is aligned with the recoil rope guide.
Thread the new rope through recoil rope guide and into the KNOT hole in the spool. (Ice pick scribe jewlers screwdriver... will be required to pull the new rope up and out through the knot hole. TIE a KNOT in the bitter end of the rope and pull the knot into the knot hole.
FINALLY have 2nd person release the spool and it will rewind onto the spool.
Install the recoil / air shroud.

Thanks for using FixYa.
