SOURCE: how-to repair the pull starter for the WEED EATER GHT220

remove the starter housing, usually only 3 or 4 bolts or screws. on the inside should be a large white or black wheel, hold the outer case with one hand and rotate the wheel counter-clockwise with the other as many times as can without force. on the inside of the wheel should be a small hole, rotate the wheel to line it up with rope guide hole on the outer case/housing. use a nail or small screwdriver to help hold in place. feed the start rope through the 2 holes and tie a knot at the end, single or double depending on the size of the hole. if the end of the rope is frayed, use lighter to melt and twist to a point to make it easier to handle. when reassembling you may need to jiggle the handle for realignment. it works on an inner spring coil tensioner system, so if the cable has no tension when rotated or doesn't recoil back, the starter assembly will need to be replaced.

SOURCE: sharpen hedge trimmer blade??

My trick is to make sure that I always lube the blades after each session with a 3/4 engine oil + 1/4 kerosene mix - making sure that every tooth gets a drops or 2, then run it for a seconds to spread the oil & leave the blades overlapping. Doing this allows the blades to self sharpen I've found. 2 stroke oil , unmixed is about the perfect viscosity aswell.

remove screws on both sides of plastic housings, remove spark plug, pull off plactic cap on the bottom side of the clutch plate. stick a wooden stick in that hole to keep the crank shaft from turning when you put an adjustabloe wrench on the clutch, unscrew clutch to get other half of housing off to get to the pull rope.

SOURCE: I have a 22inch Craftsman Hedge Trimmer, Model No.

The likely issue is the gear pin has been sheared. The part is no longer available from Craftsman. (P/N from sears: 616255-001)

I had a similar issue with a similar electric trimmer. I removed the old pin and used a split pin and ground it down to the proper size. It's now worked for about 2 years just fine. This requires complete dis-assembly.

Hello, I have a craftsman gas hedge trimmer that will not start. What are some things I could checl out to try to get it working


Two items fairly easy to check; the condition of the spark plug and whether the ignition coil is healthy. The plug must be removed to check it for fouling (a buildup of deposits near the spark gap) and also wipe the insulator of the plug clean and inspect it carefully for fine lines; a cracked insulator (not uncommon) will provide a path for the spark voltage to ground before it reaches the spark gap. The ignition coil can be checked by sight in a shady area (sunlight makes it tough to see). Pull the plug wire free of the plug and insert anything metallic into the female connector that will extend the contact. Position your extension near some metal part of the engine and watch this gap as you tug on the starter rope. You should be able to see the spark appear a couple of times with each pull of the rope to its limit.
These coils are not very well made and cost $30-40 US to replace.
Once you have access to the coil. use some gauge (could be a knife or screw driver blade) so you can re-gap the coil if a new one is installed.
I suggest that you go to the Sears website below and enter your model number. You should find it listed there and it will have a parts breakdown of your trimmer along with part numbers, etc.:

Sears parts dept.


Using this you can orient yourself on the innards of the trimmer.

Rope will not retract.


I am assuming you tried to pull start and the rope is stuck out. Just try pulling the rope while it is out, but stand on the hedge trimmer. Sometimes when this happens to me, I just pull the rope a little extra and then hang onto it when it goes back in. Alot of times, I think the rope gets caught on the outside of the retraction pulley causing a tangle.

I'm having problems figuring out how to change or repair the string pull on a craftsman 22 inch gas hedge trimmer. It looks to me like you have to remove the clutch. How do you do that?

I have pulled the cord out of my gas powered trimmer. What is the easiest way to fix this


Remove the pull start mechanism, remove the old rope from the inside plastic, thread a new rope through the hole in the outside and through the hole in the plastic center where you removed the old rope, Now reach between the spool and the edge of the casing and pull some slack in the rope, there will be a notch in the spool, set the rope into the notch and begin spinning the spool to make tension in the spring ( correct direction is the same way the rope is spooled in. go until you have good tension on spring, grab rope left outside casing and pull through, then let rope get pulled into the spool with the spring tension you have created. Now just reattach 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
