The last one I had like that had a frozen piston. It may not be that but something has siezed. The reason I think it is the piston is that you should be able to turn it over if it was just the shaft. Pull it apart and see. Good luck...Lee

Tip

Wire feed jammed on welder


Hi there,

You're trying to thread a new reel of wire on your welder, but it keeps getting hung up.

Happens sometimes when you're pushing on a rope. This may help you see it through.

You will need lineman pliers or some other type of heavy duty grippers

  • Release the drive wheels
  • Pull it back out from the spool side by manually turning the reel
  • Snip the end of the wire if it is at all bent.
  • Lay the feed hose out in a fairly straight line
  • Re-engage the drive wheels
  • Pull the feed trigger until the wire either makes it through or stalls
  • If it stalls, release the trigger and use the pliers to work the wire back and forth until the it clears the snag area. Try not to twist or kink the wire
  • Repeat the procedure until the wire has made it all the way through
That's about it

Best regards
Mike

Exha 2425 pull cord jammed


I'm not sure if this is an attempted repair or whether this just "happened" but here is my repair procedure. Jammed could be worn or dirty rope or rope improperly sized for the machine...or crushed housing. A broken or slipped spring can seem jammed. Sometimes a spring can be re-bent on the inner most winding tab to catch on the housing.

Most recoil assemblies are easy to fix...but not in an obvious way. Remove the recoil asembly from the small engine housing/flywheel cover. Usually three bolts hold it on. 10mm on Honda's. Pull the remaining rope thru the exit hole if possible. Otherwise, fish remaining rope thru the hole by turning rope winding pulley as if pulling handle was still attached, lining up any remaining rope end and pushing thru the exit hole in outer recoil housing or backing it out the inside pulley. Continue to wind rope winding pulley in a counterclockwise ( facing pulley...not outer metal) untill it will not tighten any further. Remove any more old rope. Line up pulley hole and exit hole. Melt end of new rope into a tapered shape..if not supplied that way. the pulley can be held in place by inserting a screwdriver thru the both the pulley and the metal housing spokes. Thread the new rope thru the exit and pulley hole. Tie the rope end sticking thru and draw tight. Cut 6 feet of rope...if not using a presized pull. Release screwdriver from spokes and rope should draw up onto the pulley. Tie off opposite end of the rope to keep from losing that end into the exit hole. put the handle on the rope and tie a knot in the end to retain the handle. Untie the tie-off and allow the handle to fully retract. If handle does not fully retract you may shorten the rope so that it does...as long as you have plenty of pull lenght

The pull cord on my homelite weedeater is jamming and not able to pull it all the way... can't see anything that is jamming it and does not appear broken.


Sounds like the cord is caught in a slot on the side of the pulley the rope recoils into. The cover will have to be removed and maybe some additional things but it can be fixed fairly easy with some patience.

I purchased the conair trimmer model GMT175W I purchased it second hand and don't have the manual the small blade was attached and I can't figure out how to attach the larger cutting head. Can you help me?


Just twist and pull backward on the tip where the seam is. It does kind of feel like you're going to break it, but it won't--it is made to snap off like this.

How to replace starter rope and spring on the 14" poulan. What's the trick for getting the spring wound and installed back in the housing?


There should be a mount inside the casing and another one on the starter rope socket. Wind all but a foot or so of your pull rope onto the sprocket then mount the spring on the mount in the casing. Don't worry about winding the spring yet. After that attack the spring to the sprocket. There should be a notch cut in the edge of the sprocket. Lay the rope in the notch and then place the spocket back into the case. With the rope in the notch you can then start winding up the spring taking the twists out of the rope as you do it. Depending on the length of your rope you'll probably need 5 or 6 turns of the sprocket. Once you get it wound then position the notch where the pull rope exits the housing. Grap the rope handle and pull the excess rope until it is all in the sprocket or outside the case and no longer in the notch. There might be some retainers for the sprocket. I"m not that familiar with Poulan. Secure these if there are some and put the housing back onto the saw and you should be good to go.

I have a broken pull cord and cannot figure out how to fix it.


Easiest way is to remove the complete blower housing assembly, remove the old rope, then twist the rope pulley around and around until the spring is tight, ease it back until the hole in the pulley for the rope lines up with the hole in the recoil housing and stick a small screwdriver through the pulley and the housing to hold tension on the spring. Next, take your new rope and feed it first through the recoil housing, then through the hole in the pulley, tie a good solid knot right at the end of the rope and pull it back out until you feel it pulling on the pulley. Now holding tension on the rope, remove the screwdriver and let the spring tension slowly pull the rope back into the the pulley until it is full, pull it back out about a half turn on the pulley and tie a slip knot against the outside of the housing to hold it in place and reassemble everything. Hook the end of your rope through the rope guide on your handle if it has one, slip the handle on and tie a knot to hold it. Cut off the excess, pop out the slip knot and it will pull up tight and you are ready to go

The starter pull cord has pulled off.


EASY,REMOVE TOP COVER OF ENGINE THAT HOUSES ROPE ASSY. LOOK UNDERNEATH PLASTIC PIECE,CUT THE KNOT OFF THAT COMES THROUGH HOLE AND PULL AND EXISTANT ROPE OUT. OK, GET NEW ROPE AND HANDLE TOGETHER,THE END THAT IS OPPOSITE FROM NEW PULL STRING HANDLE YOU ARE GOING TO USE. CAREFULLY WIND UP ROPE HOUSING NICE AND FIRM JUST BY WINDING IT UP WITH HAND IN AS IT SITS IN TOP COVER. WHEN YOU THINK IT HAS ENOUGH TO PULL ROPE IN FEED END OF ROPE IN HOLE AND IN CHANNEL OF ROPE HOUSING,THERE IS A SMALL HOLE TO LINE IT UP WITH,WHEN SEE THE ROPE END FEED IT THROUGH THAT HOLE NOW. MAKE TAKE ANOTHER SET OF HANDS OR A WEDGE TO STOP RETRACTING OF SPRING. PULL ROPE THROUGH AND TIE A DOUBLE KNOT AT END SO IT WONT PULL THROUGH. SLOWLY LET IT PULL ROPE IN,THEN PULL ROPE BY HANDLE FULL LENGTH TO ENSURE ALL KINKS ARE OUT AND IT PULLS BACK IN LIKE IT SHOULD.

Pull-start rope won't pull


This has happened several times for me and is usually caused by a peice of word jamed in the input hopper and half cut by the blades. Always make sure there is no wood in the input chute before stopping motor. remove the collector bag and use a long pry bar to reverse the flywheel. if this moves backwards you may then be able to remove the peice of wood jammed in the blades thru the input chute. Long Skinny arms is required to reach down the chute. Use a Flashlight to see if this is your problem.
