Broken pull cord install instructions

I have a eu3000is with a broken pull cord. I pulled the cover and attempted to get to the spool only to find a much more detailed disassembely than expected. Is there a resource for the installation of the new cord that anyone is aware of that will guide me? Or an straight forward solution that I should be aware of?

Hi there .
The only way to get to the starter on a EU3000IS is from the front of the machine .
You have to remove the plastic around the control panel , remove the control panel and the inverter and you be able to see the starter on the right side . To remove it is only 3 10mm bolts holding it in place . Make sure when you put it back is on the right place and pull the cord gently so the starter can sit .
Hope this help

Broken pull rope of Mantis Tiller

Remove the starter assembly from the side of the engine. Remove the balance of the old cord from the spool and purchase about 1-meter of replacement cord from a saw shop (it should be nylon, not cotton). Insert the new cord into the center slot/hole in the spool, melt the end, and tie an overhand knot. Wind the cord around the spool several turns in the same direction as the old cord, then pull on the cord to wind the return spring inside the spool. Wedge the spool to prevent rewinding, then continue to wind the cord until about 8-10 inches are left. Feed the cord end through the cord port and into the handle. Melt the cord end, then tie an overhand knot and pull the knot back into the cavity in the handle. Remove the spool wedge and test the pull of the cord--it should pull out smoothly and return fully without slack. Hope this helps!

My pull start cord won't retract. How do I fix it

Remove the starter assembly from the engine and pull the cord out--it should have spring resistance to pulling. If nothing, the rewind spring may be broken, or it may have pulled loose from one of the attachment points. Remove the cord from the pull handle and unwind it from the spool if it isn't already pulled out. Remove the spool from the frame to expose the spring--check the ends for breakage and the attachment points for damage (one will be on the under side of the spool). Repair or replace any damaged components and assemble the spring into the attachments. Wind the spool/spring about 2-turns CW, then wedge it to prevent unwinding. Fit the cord back into the spool and wind it CW until the cord has about 8" or so to feed out through the cord port. Fit the cord end back into the handle, tie an overhand knot, and push the knot into the handle bore. Remove the spool wedge and try pulling the cord several times to make sure it goes out and back smoothly. Return the starter to the engine and attempt starting. Hope this helps!

The pull rope will not rewind. How do I reset it?

The cord should be removed from the spool entirely, then wind the spool spring CCW for a number of turns making sure the spool can be turned for about 6 turns more (during start). Wedge the spool so that it can't unwind the spring again. If the old cord was about worn out, replace it with fresh. Melt the cord end somewhat so that the knot won't pull out, then tie an overhand knot in the cord end. Feed it into the inner retainer on the spool, then thread the cord around the spool 5 or 6 times in a CCW direction. Once wound, feed the loose end out of the cord port, slide the pull handle on, melt the cord end, and tie an overhand knot on it. Stuff the knot into the handle and release the wedge from the spool so that spring tension pulls the cord tight. Pull the cord out several times to make sure nothing interferes with cord and mechanism, then install on the saw and check the start operation. The spring should never bind-up when the cord is fully extended. Hope this helps!

The pull starter cord on my MTD Gold Series push lawnmower has broken. I have disassembled the housing and can access the feed holes for the cord. Can you give me advice on how to install the cord? This...

You have the cover off and are looking at the recoil from inside. Ok.

You need to get a length of cord equal to the old cord plus a few inches for tieing knots on the ends.

First put the length of cord through the hole on the top of the recoil cover. Feed it into the spool under the cover and get a pair of needle nose pliers to help you pull it through the hole in the spool. Now tie a knot in the end that just came through the spool and using a cigarette lighter singe the end of the rope to seal it. *(most true recoil cords have a little nylon in them that will melt to create the seal) This seal keeps the end from fraying or collecting moisture.

Now that you have one end fitting you are ready to put the handle end on. If your old handle is refittable then reuse. If not, you need to get another handle. Replacements are generally reuseable. Put the unknotted end through the new handle and tie and knot in it. Then do the lighter singe thing again.

Now the spool needs to be wound up. Looking at the spool you should see a notch on its outer edge. This is where you put the cord and use it to prewind the starter return spring. You put enough turns into it the when you release it the recoil pulls enough cord in that your handle rests in the appropriate spot *(either on top the recoil cover or on the mowers upper handle). Once you have the unit prewound you can reinstall it and try it out!

Good luck and be careful!

I am trying to replace the cord on my mower, but the cord wont spring back in when I attempt to start it. Please help

the spring below the cord 'spool' must be wound tight before new cord is attached.disconnect cord,wind spool in the direction cord would pull it when starting until it stops & hold it there[spring is wound] release it enough to align & attach cord.release spool & allow it to wind cord onto spool.replace cover.

The pull cord has come off the spindle, how do I get it back on properly or install a new one and reset the spring tension

Remove the starter cover, rewind or wind a new cord onto the spool. Turn the spool about 2 turns against the spring, thread the pull cord through the starter cover and reinstall the pull handle.

Please note ! patients is required with this one !
Hi, remove the recoil top cover with the recoil attached. ( DO NOT TAKE OUT THE SPOOL OR YOU COULD HAVE THE SPRING GET YOU IN THE FACE)
Remove old cord.
With your new cord lace it through the recoil spool centre hole with a knott on the end.
now depending if the recoil winds in clockwise when spool is facing you wind the cord around it a few times by turning the spool clockwise,
Then put the cord in the notch at the side of the spool & wind the spool & cord anticlockwise about twice the number of turns of cord (this should tension the spring).
Take your end of the cord & lace it through the hole outside of the casing & fit you pull handle.
But hold the spool firmly untill the cord has a good knott on the end of it.
(Sometimes I see the guys here putting a loop in the cord to stop it sliping in while they tie a knott on the end of the handle.)
