Sounds like the spring might have broken. Sometimes they are a pain to rewind. Might want to see about a new pull assembly. But first take off the shroud to see if the little pieces of metal or plastic that engages the assembly on top of the fly wheel are ok. If so untie the cord to the hand hold and remove rope from the pulley inside. Then turn the pulley a couple of times and let it go(but watch your fingers). If it spins pretty fast then turn it again till you get some tension and I put a screwdriver through the fins so it doesn't unwind (but line up the hole where the line goes through first) then put the line through the holes and tie a knot. Then pull out the screwdriver and slowly let the line rewind. If it rewinds reassemble and it should work fine for you.

Let me know if this helped.

Thanks

Repair retractable cord


Depending on which model of Electrolux you have and how far out you have pulled out the cord (most of the Electrolux canisters have a yellow tape around the machine end of the cord to alert you not to pull it out any further), you might have to take it apart to fix it. However, the first thing that I would try would be to stand it on the end (the hose end at the top), and pull short jerks on the cord to see if it will correct itself and retract. If that does not fix it, I would stick a screwdriver in the hole where the cord comes out of the machine and attempt to wind the cord reel back up which will slowly wind the cord back up on the cordwinder. This usually cause the cord to wind back up. If that does not work, then the only option is to take the machine apart to fix it.

Replace pull cord


Echo is one of the easiest pull cords to fix, remove the screws on the rewind and take off the motor and flip it over and pull old rope out and put new rope in wind the spring the correct way so when you pull rope it tightens spring so it will wind back up when let go, not winding too tight !

Remove the four screws securing the starter houseing, with the starter removed, pull the cord out, tuck the cord into the cut a way in the side of the pulley and allow the cord to wind in slowley to let the tention off the spring, make sure all the tention has gone, now remove the centre screw, take away the pulley centre and the round spring from behind, note the hole in the pulley and the centre hub for the spring location, now carefully remove the pulley, be aware there is a large spring behind, remove the knot in the end and remove the starter handle, fit the cord back into the new pulley, refit the pulley into the cover making sure to locate into the spring behind, thread the cord back through the cover and reconnect the handle, knot the cord, re fit the round spring back into the locating hole in the pulley, re fit the pulley hub making sure the spring fits into the hole in the hub, re fit the securing screw, now put the cord back into the cut a way in the side of the pulley, wind up the spring, allow it to pull the cord back into the starter, only wind it enough to pull the cord fully back into the cover, re fit the starter.

I pulled the pull cord right out of it s hole. So I unscrewed all of the screws to fix it but i cant unscrewed the fans screw ????


There should be no need to remove the flywheel (fans?) to repair the starter cord. The starter mechanism should have come free of the left side housing so that everything you need to deal with is in that package. Did the cord break, or just pulled the cord free of the spool inside? If the cord broke, then buy a replacement cord (about 1-meter in length) of the same size and material (no cotton cord). Thread the cord into the spool center where there is a hole for the inside part of the cord and bring the end out of the hole. Melt the cord end, and then tie an overhand knot in the cord. Pull the knot back tight and proceed to wind the cord in a CCW direction around the spool until you have about most of it wound. Pull on the cord to wind the internal spring several turns and wedge the spool so that it won't unwind the spring. Wind the balance of the cord until you have about 8" left--feed that end through the outer hole and into the handle. Melt the cord end, then tie an overhand knot in it. Stuff the knot into the handle cavity and remove the spool wedge. Try the cord several times to make sure the spring pulls it back firmly and allows ample cord pull-out. Hope this helps!

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!

The pull cord has com undone an the coil spring unwound


Did the cord break or just have an end knot pull out. If a knot pulled out, it will help to melt the cord end with a match or lighter and make a small lump which helps keep the knot from undoing (make sure not to use the open flame near the fuel!). Rewind the spring first, then fit the cord and work it around the outside of the spool while wedging it to keep it from unwinding again. Check by pulling it through and watching for uniform movement of the cord. The spring should never completely wind up and bind. Hope this helps!

How do I repair a broken pull cord on a yardman push mower?


Easier than you might think. You need a screwdriver along with the sockets to remove the housing over the rewind assembly. Once you have the housing off and access to the assembly, remove the old cord by using it to wind the spring all the way out. Before you take the cord out slip a screwdriver in the slots to keep it from winding back up. If it does, it's not a concern. Just wind the spring back out by turning the rewind until it stops, then turn it back one turn until the holes line up for the cord. Stick the new cord through and tie it off, and let the spring pull the new cord in. If you need any help with it, hit me up.
