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.

SOURCE: gas weed eater pull cord wont retract after pulling cord

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

SOURCE: cord doesn't retract, so I took it apart ...

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.

How do I take apart the New Bright Power Horse Tower Crane TC36 to fix the tangled strings inside?


WOO HOO I FIGURED IT OUT!!!! You have to pull it apart from the base up. First thing I did was take off the feet. If you look down the tower potion you can see a screw. Then u took off the tower. I figured out that if you just lined up the black square portion it would have come apart with just the one screw. Anyways now there is 2 more screws to get. 3 total to take the new bright tc36 tower crane apart. They are hard to see, but once the base is off you can get at em. Good luck everyone.

Pull cord will not retract


Have to take all 3 plastic covers (housings) off to get to the spring and tie the new pull rope or change the spring. Just did mine, spring just unlatched and string wouldn't retract. Did not have to by any new parts....works great! Took me 1 hour to get it done.

I need to rewind the spring and starter pull cord. I need to understand how all the parts fit together


I had the same problem. I had to take it apart and rewind it manually. To do this:
Step 1:
There are 4-bolts to remove on the orange plastic section the screw into the motor housing (one of them is hidden inside the orange plastic housing, you'll see an opening for it). There are also 3 screws in the black plastic exhaust housing that screw into the orange plastic housing, find those and remove.

Step 2:
Carefully remove the engine from the plastic housing. I didn't disconnect the throttle cable or the electric wires (points) just kind of worked around them.

Step 3:
The mechanism is kind of crappy. There are two black pieces with a spring in the middle, and a metal disc on the bottom with a ribbon coil on the underside of it. The top plastic piece is what turns the flywheel when you pull the cord. The spring in between connects the two plastic piece. This is probably what popped out. There is a piece sticking up on one end, which inserts into the hole in the top black plastic piece. If you remove the little guardrail things you can probably remove just that piece. KEEP TENSIONS ON THE PULL CORD. Once you remove that top black piece, it should start to recoil.

Step 4:
If it did recoil, put the spring back in the top plastic piece, and then put the plastic/spring combo back into the the bottom plastic piece, there is a little groove for the bottom of the spring to slide into. Then put the little guardrail screws back on. Make sure the big metal wire thing hasn't slipped down into the shaft of the weed whacker. That needs to go back into the motor, as it is what gets spun and in turn spins the strings. As you start to put the motor back in, you may have to pull on the pull cord a few times to get the flywheel and plastic piece to line up. Once you hear the motor start to catch, then you should be able to wiggle it back into place and put back all of the screws. Then give it a shot. If it pulls out again, you may have to drill a new hole into the top black plastic piece for that spring to slide into (this is the crappy design part).

Step 5:
If the pull cord didn't retract, you need to remove the other two pieces (lower black plastic piece and metal disc with ribbon). The metal ribbon has a nub on the outside that hooks onto a plastic piece in the bottom of the orange plastic housing. You'll need to wind it around once or twice to "charge" the ribbon, then wind the string back on the black plastic piece. The black piece should slide into the center of the metal disc and catch the inside of the ribbon. Once you get these two together, again, make sure the metal ribbon piece is wound once past normal and then you have to slide both parts together down into the housing catching the metal ribbon loop over the orange plastic nub. It's tricky, it took me a few tries. Once you get that you can try and test the pull cord, you'll see it pull out and feel it retract due to that metal ribbon. Then go back and do step 4, where you put the upper black plastic piece with spring back into place and replace the little metal guardrails.

This whole thing took a few tries, and the pull cord still gets stuck out. It's a major pain to say the least, but after the 5th time fixing it, you'll be a real pro.
