Bissell momentum canister vacuum retractable electrical cord not retracting


Either the cord inside is caught on something or the retraction spring is broken.
Try to pull it out further, if you can feel any spring-back then most likely the cord is caught, maybe on itself.
Either way, the canister will probably have to be disassembled to fix the problem.

How to fix stuck pull cord of a 22 inch Toro Recycler lawn mower


Is the engine seized?. Try turning the blade and if it won't turn then you have a seized engine. If that is ok your recoil has a stuck part possibly something has broken off inside. If it's an older model try shooting WD40 inside the recoil as it could be rusty.

I have tried to post my question several times, asking how to change the pull cord on my Poulan 625 series lawn mower, it hasn't posted and I can't seem to get an answer.


did this break at the pull handle? if so you will still be able to re-use the same cord.
you have to first remove the pull mechanizum from the top of the engine. turn it upside down and get the old pull chord off 'If it has broken at the engine end of the cord. You will find the end of the cord inside, remove it with a pair of pin nosed pliers.
If broken at the pull handle remove the broken and of the cord from the back side of the handle. There will be a knot tied in either end. Assuming you still have enough pull cord . Cut the broken end so it is not frayed slip it through the pull handle and tie a simple knot & make it tight with some pliers.
re wind the spring by hand winding the cord back into the spool.
now you need a small zap strap to hold it all in place until you reinstall the pull mechanizum on top of the engine.Once you have done this cut the zap strap off and retrieve it as you do.
Hint* "with only 2 hands" I have used pin nosed vice grips to hold back the spring while I tie it off with zap strap or stiff string.
If the cord if broken at the engine end you will need to line up the cord input with the cord journal and hold in place while you try to feed the cord back through. Hint* use a smaller peice of wire to feed through the opposite direction and wind it around the cord several times so you can pull it through to the inside of the pull mechanizum and tie a knot. Good luck

Pull starter string is broken


Hi ed this is a time consuming one. Firstly remove the starter head and turn it over. Then by hand turn the cord holder anti clockwise by hand until the spring inside cant turn no more. Get some one to hold the whole lot and then try and thread the new string through until it goes through the hole in the pully. When its in Tie a big knot in the end and then pull the cord down so its tight. Release the cord pully slowly and it should retract back in with the strength of the spring. This should fix it.

Think cleaning lady pulled too hard on cord...now no power, doesn't turn on


it is possible that the cord rewinder has become broken inside the unit. It is a common problem with this and other models by Miele.

There IS a fix to the cord rewind, unless your model falls within the 5 year warranty. In which case contact your nearest Miele dealer for a replacement to the cord rewinder.

Good luck.

My pull cord will not retract


The coil spring has either broken or come loose inside the pull rope housing. You must disassemble the housing to fix it.

Pull cord broken. After removing red hood and


You don't need to remove the rivets. There should be two metal tabs that bend over the nylon retractor, or it'll have a screw in the middle of the retractor pulley inside the cover. you bend those up a little, or remove the screw, remove the retractor, be careful, because that spring can be fun if it gets away from you, take the old rope out, put the retractor back in place, wind it back as far as you can, feed the rope in, tie the knot, and let it draw the rope in. Put everything back like you found it, and your pull rope if fixed.

Weed Eater PE550 - How do you change the spring that operates the cord pull. Cord not rewinding. Spring broken


Lay the unit on it's side, carborater down. Removed the 3 screws holding hold the gear assembly housing. Hold the clutch assembly inside a cloth with a wrench and remove the nut. Left from the starter cup as a stack and set aside. There is a starter retaining ring on the shaft. Pull this with a long nose plyers. If it spings free, it is easy to loose. Then left out the starter pully. The starter spring is under the pully. Remove it with a sharp pointed tool. A broken one is crusted in rust and will be snapped off inside the coil.
