SOURCE: replace recoil starter for Homelite trimmer Model UT21546

My UT21546 has 2 springs, the regular recoil one and a what I'll call a anti kickback one. the top of the anti kickback spring kept coming unsecured and finally I just deleated it alltogther and screwed the 2 plates tightly togehter and the near new unit works better than new now.

SOURCE: ryobi ry34000 Starter rope will not recoil

hello sir, i'm guessing the rope is broken , first you'll need a c-clamp large enough to clamp the spooler, needle-nose pliers,a small tipped screwdriver and a new length of rope.the safest way is to remove the rewind assembly cover leaving the spooler in place in its housing. try to remove the old rope with neddle nose pliers ans small tipped screwdriver.next hand spin the spooler to achieve spring tension until stops back off enough to line holes up, place c-clamp to hold it in place,now try to fish the new rope into the hole in the knot recess,trying to guide it to the exit hole in the cover, ( it's easier to feed the rope if you singe the end of the rope with a bic lighter and form to a point )and with a small knot at the other end,pull the rope all the way until you can seat the knot into the knot recess.next tie a loop knot into the other end of the rope,so the end wont be recoiled all the way into the housing.with tesion on the rope gently remove the c-clamp and let the rope be drawed in.if it draws all the way to the loop knot, check to see if the spooler is full if so,( not too full where rope is binding ) pull the rope about a foot and re clamp the spooler and install the pull handle, if rope is too long you may have to cut to length. if it doesn't draw all the way to the loop knot and the spooler is not full than you may need to add anoyher revolution to the spring tension in the same fashion as described above.there are eisier ways but that evolves removal of the spooler and repacking the reciol spring.( not for the novice ). hope this helps,MrFixIt,thank you. gtui

Pulley cord wont go down unable to start on gas trimmer


Your cord wont recoil?

You should remove the recoil cover and see if you can rewind the rope manually.

It isnt too hard and will let you know immediately if you need to replace the recoil.

Just the recoil unit by loosening the three or four bolts and lift it off the trimmer. Turn it over and look at the recoil spool. There should be a notch in it. This is were you catch a bit of the starter rope and start turning it in the direction of normal rotation. Normal rotation will put tension on the recoil spring.
When you put 4-6 turns into it just let it recoil and see if it pulls all the rope back in. That's it. If the cord didnt recoil something inside the recoil has broken and you need to get the unit serviced or replaced. Most of the time the cost of repairing something like this is prohibitive. Its a better idea to just replace the whole unit.

Good luck and be careful!

Howdo I fit a new pull start cord on a ryobi 25cc


remove the plastic housing to gain access to the recoil. Pull the cord slowly all the way out,this will cause the spring to wind up.Clamp the recoil wheel so it will not return to its original position,be carefull the recoil has tension on it not remove the old pull rope and thread the new one in and thru the hole of the recoil tie knot.pull on the cord to take tension off and at the same time remove clamp. Slowly allow the recoil to wind the rope in and reinstall on unit.

Ryobi Reeleasy line trimmer head PROBLEM


sounds like the clip isn't engaging properly. For a bump and feed they have steps that lock when enough cord is set out. If the head is not locked when its on it will recoil in. Try to make sure its not sitting wrong.

How do you put a new pull cord on?


With great difficulty on that machine!!!

Its a "Half Cranked" engine (which is cheap and nasty) meaing the recoil / pull cord is located between the shaft of the brushcutter and the engine (NOT on top of the engine like proper "Full Cranked" engines are).

You will have to remove the engine to do this and probably loose the will to live in the process! Bin it and buy a Stihl bent shaft trimmer instead
