Hedgetrimmer won't start

Similar problem but with a hedgetrimmer. Started out pull rope wouldn't recoil, fixed that. Put it back together and noticed leaking fuel lines. Replaced those. Now it will not start. Took carberator apart, checked diaphrams, blew out ports, checked needle and seat. Nothing. Couldn't even get the bulb to pump up. I thought maybe I didn't have the gaskets right below the bulb put in properly.Took carb back apart and switched the gaskets around. Put carb back together. Bulb will now pump up but motor still won't start. At this point I'm not sure about the gaskets or anything else.

Sounds as if the Carb needs to be cleaned out. Get yourself a can of non-chlorinated brake cleaner and spray the carb out really well. Then reinstall the carb. Also check any ports in the carb to make sure there isn't any debris blocking the flow of fuel. I would also suggest getting some Stabil Marine (blue) fuel stabilizer. The ethanol in gas destroys small engine carbs. Just mix this in with your gas tank the next time you fill up. How old is this fuel? The ethanol also absorbs water, so even while in the gas can it is obtaining moisture. The Stabil Marine formula helps lesson the effects of the ethanol.

SOURCE: My Craftsman 17cc gas weed trimmer wouldn't start.

Hi There, Check the primer bulb for tare or pin holes. Replace it. Check and clean carb jet it maybe plugged with debree. Also check for spark which you didn't say. Replace with correct plug.
Note; Do not use strong cleaners on rubber seals (O rings and gaskets) They dry up and crack.
If needed use a dabble of grease on seals

Hi, basically the needle in the carby is not sealing correctly. This could be due to the lever height not being adjusted to level with the lower carby body or the gasket not being fitted before the diaphragm on the needle side of the carby. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

Pull cord will not rewind


  • 1

    Turn the Homelite chainsaw so that the bar and chain are laying flat and the starter cover is facing up. Loosen the four starter cover screws by unscrewing them counterclockwise with the screwdriver.

  • 2

    Take the starter cover off of the engine. Turn the starter cover over to work on the pull starter. Pull the rope out about 6 to 8 inches.

  • 3

    Twist a loop into the end of the rope. Insert the intersection of the two ropes into the notch on the upper flange of the pulley. Rotate the loop back and forth until you notice the recoil spring has disengaged. Unwind the rope from the pulley. Cut off any old rope if you need to replace it with a new rope.

  • 4

    Unscrew the screw holding the pulley to the starter cover using the screwdriver. Take the pulley off the starter cover. Turn the pulley over and remove the recoil spring cassette from inside the pulley.

  • 5

    Inspect the spring inside the cassette to see if it is damaged or overstretched. Replace the recoil spring cassette if it is broken. Lubricate the post on the starter cover using about a dime-sized amount of engine grease.

  • 6

    Put the recoil spring cassette back into the pulley. Set the pulley onto the starter cover and tighten the screw down with the screwdriver. Wind the starter rope back around the pulley in a clockwise direction.

  • 7

    Leave about 6 to 8 inches of rope unwound. Form another loop at the end and insert the loop into the notch on the pulley. Rotate the loop back and forth until you notice the tension is set on the recoil spring.

  • 8

    Remove the loop and place the starter cover back over the engine. Pull the rope out 6 inches and tighten the starter cover's screws using the screwdriver. Release the rope and it should automatically retract


  • hope this helps

    Recoil pulley assembly keeps binding. Rope stays in pulley, but won't retract. Must remove motor housing , loosen 3 pulley hold down guides, & uncock the pulley. spring tension on recoil is fine....


    Have you ever replaced the recoil rope, if you had is it a larger rope then the one that came with it? If so, that could be the cause of the binding. I had that difficulty once.

    The cord came out of my Pouland Pro model PPb430Vs leaf blower. I took the unit apart put the cord back on the spool, put unit back together. Pulled the cord but the cord did not re-coil?? What...


    I will give you instructions for fixing the recoil unit on a trimmer. The blower instructions are the same, just the configuration is different. The key is to maybe have someone help you.
    OK...with the starter/recoil unit OFF the machine, with no rope in it, and no tension on it.....grasp the little nylon hub and turn it (clockwise is I recall) round and round 6-7 times until you feel the recoil spring get nice and tight...DO NOT LET GO OF IT!...hold it in place and then JAM the starter/recoil unit in place (still tight) inside it's housing by either clamping it with a tool like vise grips or by sticking a screwdriver thru it and thru the vents in the cover. If you have ANOTHER person to help you...one of you hold it in place....and make sure it is lined up to where you can NOW insert the new lenth of pull rope thru the housing hole and into the hole in the pulley.. Always use new rope....Feed the end thru the hole in the recoil unit and tie it off, by wrapping it around itself outside the nylon hub and then screw the little self-tapping set screw back in holding the rope down. OK...then feed the opposite end into the hole in the front engine cover and attatch the T pull handle....Now mind you, you are still jammming or holding the recoil in place against the spring!...Now, unclamp it or unjam it and slowly let the recoil pull the NEW rope you just installed back onto the pulley. Make sure it is fastened well on top of the pulley around the nylon hub and also fastened well onto the T pull handle. That is it. Then reconnect your wires, put your throttle cable back thru the engine cover and reinstall the Torx screws in the cover...and you are done

    OK, this is a pretty simple fix, if you have 3 hands. What happened when the rope broke is that it allowed the recoil spring to unwind. You need to take the housing off again, put the rope back inside the housing. You then need to turn the big pulley that the rope wraps onto in the same direction as it would turn when you pull the rope. You probably need to turn it 6-8 times at least. Once you get this done, you need to hold the pulley secure and feed the rope thru the housing again, put the handle back on the rope. This last step is where the 3rd hand comes in very handy! This should get you back in business.
