Poulan Pro PP5020AV pull cord won't retract


You need to wind the spring back in a coil at a time, it is not easy if you have never done one, order a new spring, this will come pre wound in a cassette and is an easy fit.

Rope needs rewound, got tangled up , had to remove the 4 nuts, now need to get in back on wound tight


I assume that you are speaking of a pull start mechanism.
I can not imagine how to put a put pull starter back on "wound tight". Your pulling on the cord tightens a spring which pulls the cord back in. They go back together with the cord fully wound onto the spool.
Usually, I only take these apart to replace the cord. Wind the new cord onto the spool without handle. Reassemble, then pull out on the cord a little when attaching the handle to the cord. This is the only way to get tension onto the spring at the fully retracted position because the catch for the spring is on the machine and the spring itself is on the underside what you are assembling.
If you do not wish to shorten the cord or replace it, then remove the handle, assemble enough to catch the spring, wind one turn tighter then feed rope through hole and reattach handle. Easier said than done.
If your spring is broken, then you will be needing a new one.

Am trying to fix my retractable mouse. do you have any diagram showing how the insides of the retractable mechanism looks like.thanks!


No pix or diagram, but you'll see a coil spring that provides the retracting function, plus one very small ball bearing that provides the holding function. The ball bearing sits on a dimple in the case and "lodges" itself in a groove in the top plate, so that whenever you rotate the case all the way around once, the ball bearing falls into the dimple and locks the two pieces together until you yank the cord. The cord just wraps around the case and there is enough friction between the cord and the case that as you pull/slide the cord, it winds the spring.

What happens most of the time is that the case/plate slips apart and the tension comes off, and/or the ball bearing drops out.

I took the plate off the case (a small phillips screw), rewound the spring a couple of turns, rewrapped the cable, very carefully put the ball bearing in the groove, and put the screw back in. It was difficult, and you should do it with tacky paper on your work surface because I dropped the ball bearing quite a few times.

Earlier in this column, someone said send it back in for warranty. almost worth it to do that, because the small pieces can be frustrating to deal with.
