You need to add more tension to the spring.

How do u fix a loose starter cord people?


Hi Rick:
Most starter cords rely on a recoil spring to make them retract.
Sometimes when the cord is replaced it is longer than the original so just needs to be shortened. Pull the cord all the way out and if you have way more than you use for a pull start, then shortening it is a fast fix.
To do that, pull out the cord a couple of feet. flip a slip knot in it to keep it from retracting, then take the start handle apart and shorten the cord about 6 inches. Should work fine.
If the cord is talready too short to make it shorter, you'll need to put another wind on the spring.
Reply as a COMMENT to this post af you need coaching through that.
Hint. Don't dismantle the spring assembly so it can get out. They are related to rattlesnakes.
Cheers.

We have a projector screen that was pulled out to far. It is a wall mounted one. It will not retract


This could be one of two things.
1. The coil spring in the housing is wound so tight it wont release the pawls and allow it to retract.
2. The coil spring has come loose and has no tension on it.
Take it down from the wall and see if the end caps come off to show the pawls. You may be able to release them with a screwdriver.

How do I fix the pull string on a push mower?


Hi Barbara:
The pull start assembly is usually attached by 3 or 4 bolts.
Start by removing it. Depending on where the pull cord broke, you may be able to use it shortened a bit, but replacement is probably a good idea.
There is a spring inside the thing the cord winds around (spool)that retracts it after you've pulled on it. The tricky part is making sure that the spring is wound up enough after you've installed the replacement cord.
Look at the way the old cord is installed. If you can, grab it with some pointy pliers and pull it all the way out, winding up the spring tension at the same time. There should be a way to hold the spool (look for a hole you can slip the end of a nail into) so you can change the cord. Then Take the nail out and make sure the cord retracts all the way.
Next step is to re-install it on the mower.
Cheerfuls!

Pull string is stuck....very difficult to pull.


Yep, starter pawl spring or pawl itself. I don't know what trimmer you have but most are set up like this. Something engages the flywheel so you have to start there.

Blower string wont retract


you might have installed the wrong spring type, check also the stopper or the lock inside that holds the spring secure.

I have a porter cable roofing nailer model # RN175 that does not advance the nails everytime what causes this?


Some causes, in order of probability:
Roofing nailers get a lot of tar build up on them, especially around the nose safety and nail feed pawl area. Cleaning off this buildup will usually take care of most problems with roofing nailers.
On the side of the gun away from the side you load the nails on there is a small cylinder with a piston inside that attaches to the feeder pawl. If air isn't getting to the piston or the piston's o-ring or spring is damaged, it won't cycle properly to advance the nails.
If the driver doesn't retract fully, the next nail won't be able to advance properly for the next shot. This can be caused by o-rings in the head that are worn or out of their proper place.

I have a stihl fs 80, the starter cord will not retract after the first pull. The spring is still intacted but doesn't spring back when re-attached to weed eater.


One of 2 things come 2 mind, if the spring is still in tact it could be that the retract line might be slightly to long and forces the spring to over travel and lock up against itself. A simple test would be to pull the pull start to only 80%. If at 80% it retracts normally then shorten the pull string by a few centimeters . alternatively the spring may be over tensioned by a turn or two. to release pull the string out with the pull starter off the machine to about halfway, hold down the recoil to release the tension off the string and pull the string out towards you through the slot provided on the face of the recoil into a loop. Gently let the recoil slip one full turn at a time until there is just enough tension to pull the handle all the way back. if its too loose just revers the process one turn at a time. its not complicated, to do but can be tricky,
if DIY is not your thing, refer to someone better qualified,

I pulled the starter rope out of the unit. How do I take the unit apart to re-wind the starter rope?


Take the cover off and look under it, you should see a plastic round disc that the rope winds on, You will need to locate the string and get it out of the cover where it passes through,once this is done, you will have to turn the disc the correct way to tighten spring ( you should be able to feel the pressure building as you turn, if not go other way, or the spring is broke, in wich case you need parts. If all is well, when you feel tension on it and have enough....not to much...just think about how much pull you had before it broke,because when the rope comes out it gets tighter towards full pull of rope, HOLD tension and put string through the hole on cover, once you have it through tie your handle back on, you should be able to release and jossle to get the rope back in the groove, Place on machine and see if you have enough tension that it will retract in cover when pulled and let go, if it does not you will have to repeat procedure, and tighten spring.....Do not get carried away with the loading of the spring......TIP you can shorten string if you just lack a little bit of it retracting in cover because it gets tighter when pulled out....Good Luck!
