SOURCE: when pulling the rope to start it doesn't grab for about 5-6 pull

Unscrew the 3 or 4 screws on the outside of the plate that is part of the pull string housing, there are 2 centrifugal pegs that are sticking due to trimmings getting in that area. Inspect, and clean the pegs that fly out when you pull the string. Do not oil (that will only attract more junk later), make sure they are free, and come out when you pull the string. And your problem will be solved.

SOURCE: cannot get my trimmer started.

Tom, it sounds like part of the rope has jumped off of the spool. There should be a small piece of plastic with a screw holding the spool in place. It may have worked itself loose.

When I pull start rope on my Craftsman 32cc 4 cycle weedeater . . . engine does not turn over . . . when I let go of the rope and it retracts . . . what is wrong?


There are 2 dogs or fingers that expand out to grab the flywheel when the rope is pulled They are sticking and can not expand or slide out. Remove the recoil unit and free them up When the recoil unit is off pull the rope and watch the action

Cord will not pull for starting?


Remove the spark plug, this will relieve compression. Then try to pull the recoil rope. If the unit still does not rotate, the unit should be inspected by a dealer.

Compression lockup


Remove spark plug. Pull rope several times to blow out cylinder. Spray WD 40 in spark plug hole. Pull rope several times. ensure compression is present. Replace spark plug with new one. Spray starting fluid in cylinder before replacing spark plug. Ensure plug wires snaps on tight. Check oil level, fill with 30w oil if required. All mowers have a low oil start cutoff. Clean or replace air filter.

How do i fix the pull start and re tension it so cord retracts?


You take the top of the motor off with the starter, then rewind the spring,then is a good idea to replace the rope with a new one they sell rope at a lawnmower store, get 5 feet or more if the rope is up on the handle, take a piece of rope with you to get the correct size.

Motorturns over hard with pullstarter on my gx340 pressurewasher


You have a nice setup, lots of power. The honda gx340 has a compression release built into the engine so it should be relatively easy to start. With the pressure pump under load however, it will be very hard to pull the rope. With water connected hold spray gun open so water is running out tip and pull rope to start (for easy start, remove tip from gun) . If it still feels very hard to pull rope while holding gun open, most likely problem with lubrication in pump or engine valves are not adjusted correctly preventing compression release. If you suspect problem, go to store where you purchased the unit or any store that sells gx340 and pull the rope to get a feel of what force is required to start engine and compare to yours. Good luck.

Starting rope has pulled away from inside blower. Can I open and reattach with not much trouble?


For a reasonable handy mechanic it is an easy job. What you have to do is expose the winder/clutch assembly and re-knot the end of the rope through the spindle and preload some spring pressure on the rope winder/clutch. You have to judge how much pretension to put on the winder so as to keep the rope wound and not too much that the rope snaps back uncontrollable.

How to replace starter cord on a victa corvette 400 series mower,cord snapped,i put it back on....now it doesnt retract properly when trying to start it


Not sure what engine that machine uses but they are all similar, you need to prewind the reel before you slip the rope thru the hole, let the spring/reel pull the rope in.
