Pull Cord has stripped and won't recoil. Can this be repaired?


Stripped? Maybe the recoil Spring just broke. Easy repair, sometimes you can just re-bend the 'Stop' on the old Spring

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,

Poulan model p3314 recoil spring won't go in correctly


You need to pretension it. Remove the pull handle, rotate the spool about 2 revolutions against the spring, rethread the cord and reinstall the handle.

Craftsman weedwacker 358.791070 suddenly stopped


could have been caused by any number of thing's,
take the recoil assembly off and try pulling the rope out while holding the center of the rope spool just enuff to prevent it from popping out in case there's nothing holding it there.
rewinding the rope is alot easier than rewinding the recoil spring Trust Me.. lol
