Ryobi BC30 trimmer - pull cord not engaging to turn over engine

When I pull on the cord, it appears that the pully is not engaging the "flywheel" to turn over the engine - just wants to freely rotate. Please help me! What should I do?

    I have been having difficulty with my BC 30 also. It had been starting, then dying out then I switched it to the B position.

    But, now when I try to start it i get nothing, but a sound similar to marbles rolling around. Is that the sign of a flywheel being shot?

    Also, anyone know how old these trimmers are?

The "pully" that you are refering to is called the recoil. There are a couple of simple reasons why this won't catch on the flywheel and if you try to fix it your self it will most likely fly apart and scare the living daylights out of you. Either order a new recoil unit off of Ebay or from a reputable dealer and save yourself the headache.

I cant replace my pull cord on my bc30 zip start ryobi weed eater?


On the equipment I have worked on the spring ends are formed into a circle. One end of the spring fits into the pulley and the other into the case. I wind the spring up on the pully just enough to fit it into the case with the cord placed into a notch in the pulley. Then you must wind the spring more so the cord is fully taken up. So to wind it up some more place the cord in the notch and turn it a turn or two till the cord is fully taken up.

Pull throttle not working


remove the starter assembly and check to see if it is working properly. If it is then try turning the flywheel by hand and see what you get but my guess is you broke the starter pawls that engage the flywheel

Two things, The rope pulley has lugs on it for the flywheel pawls, the lugs are worn off mainly due to pulling the rope before the pawls engage. replace plastic pulley..

the flywheel pawls are siezed in the run position full of dirt or rust clean and free up.

you have to remove the starter housing, inside will be 2 knobs that spring out when the cord is pulled that contact the flywheel cap of the motor and rotates the crank. check if they are missing or damaged and that they ejecting when the cord is pulled. if not; replace.
