SOURCE: starter pull cord
take a light and look into the clutch hole
you will either need a torx or star type nut driver or a allen or hex head nut driver to fit in the hole and turn the screw ccw while holding the flywheel.
Make note where all comes off and all goes back in reverse when fixed.also after you remove the clutch housing you will be stareing at the clutch shoes next and it will have markings on which way to turn it for removal.

the end of the spring may be broking you can fix it by taking it out and heat it with a small fire until it is red hot and bend it

remove the cover and the screw holding the recoil down, turning the pulley ccw should release the spring then wind rope around pulley and (hopefully yours has the slot in it) wind in the direction of the pulley teeth then, holding rope in slot put back on spring and wind cw till almost tight, and install screw. Usually you can do this without taking rope handle off. sometimes you have to remove handle. look at spring end in the middle and make sure its not broke as long as you have it apart. Its a easy fix.
Thanks for using fixya

Pardon the long winded answer. I have had a similar same issue on this trimmer TWICE in the first 3 months. What I found on my trimmer is that there is a spring buffer/assist built into the starter assy between the rope pulley and the plastic part that engages the cogs on the motor. The plastic part that engages the motor has a hole in it to retain one end of the spring and the other end of the spring fits in a slot in the rope pulley. The plastic part with the hole appears to be poorly designed and allows the spring assist spring to fall out of the hole and jam the entire assembly preventing the rope from returning. Pulling it apart allows the recoil spring to escape from under it's cover and prevents it from engaging. Yes, removing the spring can be a little exciting -- take your time and cover the housing opening with a towel before removng the spring to keep it from flying across the room. I rewound the spring by driving a nail into my workbench and using it to retain the center hole and wound the spring until it would fit inside the metal spring cover. There's a bump in the outer winding that fits in a hole in the spring cover and then it slides over a peg in the plastic housing. The cover will retain the spring as you put it back into the housing as long as you take your time. The circled inner end of the spring should show in the center hole and it engages the other part of the recoil assembly that engages the cogs on the motor. Check to see if the assist spring is engaged on both ends before tightening the 3 retainers. All-in-all a pretty poor design that has me looking for another trimmer and this one's going in the trash.

the coiled rewind spring ends are bent back in a hook. the hook usually breaks so springdoes not wind up. some times you can re bend but steel is very brittle and keeks breaking and must be replaced
