You have to take the blower apart. it is a big job if you havent done it before. Here's what to do. Make up your mind to buy a new one. Then take this one apart and try to fix it. If it goes well, you will save the cost of a new one. If it goes bad, buy the new one. You have at least tried...Good luck...Lee

How do I replace the starter (pull) rope on a toro ccr2450 (model 38413)?


Although it looks like you simply un-bolt the recoil starter you need remove the whole blower (flywheel) housing as there are nuts on the back side.
  • Once the housing is off, remove the broken rope and prepare a length of rope to replace it base upon the old ropes length. Probably close to 6 feet.Don't forget to put the pull handle on the new rope.
  • Tighten the recoil pulley in the direction it normally turns as you pull the rope out until it stops.
  • Slowly back of up to one turn to align the hole in the pulley with the housing hole and hold it in that position while you insert the rope and try a sturdy knot.
  • Slowly let recoil assembly pull the rope back in and test that it is working properly before re-installing the housing.
  • Once you are satisfied that the recoil is working properly re-install the remaining covers.

Need to relace starter rope

Remove the cover from the side of the blower that contains the pull start. This usually involves removing the self-tapping screws that join the two halves of the blower housing together.

  • Remove the broken rope from the starter pulley. Usually the rope is attached to the pulley with a simple overhand knot; just grab the knot and pull the rope back through the hole in the pulley. Sometimes the rope is attached to the pulley with a staple or some other fastener, which you'll have to remove first.
  • 3 Remove the handle from the replacement rope, if it's already attached.
  • 4 Thread the end of the rope opposite the handle through the hole in the starter pulley, working from the inside of the pulley (the side facing in toward the engine).
  • 5 Fasten the rope to the pulley. If it attaches with a knot, simply tie an overhand knot, pull it tight and trim off any excess rope sticking out of the knot. If it attaches with a fastener, replace the fastener.
  • 6 Wrap the rope counterclockwise around the pulley until the pulley is full; this usually involves one or two wraps.
  • 7 Thread the free end of the rope through the hole in the blower housing.
  • 8 Replace the blower housing and screw it in place.
  • 9 Trim off excess rope, leaving about 6 inches of rope protruding from the blower housing.
  • 10 Attach the handle to the starter rope. This typically involves threading the rope through one or two holes in the handle and securing with an overhand knot.

    I have a craftsman blower 358.797130 and the pull core broke .i have taken everything apart but can not get the pully off the seal o ring seems to be stoping it help the manual is no help


    Yes, owner operator manuals cover very little in the way of repairs. If you have the unit taken apart down to the starter/recoil unit and you want to replace or rewind the rope on the pulley...it shouldn't have to be removed, unless the starter spring has broken. These units have a cheap starter system that wears easily and causes the problem you have. If you can, preload the spring (before installing the rope ) by turning it several times in the tension direction and then hold it in place and install the rope, Observe how the old rope is looped around the inner core of the starter if you install new rope.

    Weedeater gas blower FLI500E. The pull cord has become jammed. How can I un-jam the rope pull? I have removed the bottom of the blower and can get the rope pulled out, but it will not retract properly or...


    You have to find a way to push the starter. It normally gets all stuck due to grease. One push with a screwdriver on the actual starter (The thing the rope turns) should wind the whole cord up. If not, clean it. Alot of oil/chunky-ness gets trapt when your using it.

    1) silver or aluminum color
    STOP the piston is seezed. TOO costly to repair

    2) plug dark brown or black (pretty much normal)
    remove recoil housing for tangled rope or broken rope rotor

    Starter rope will not retract


    Either you have a broken rewind spring, or the starter mechanism is dirty to the point where the force of the recoil spring is not sufficient to pull the rope back in.
    WEAR SAFETY GLASSES while disassembling your starter mechanism to see what the problem is. Upon reassembly, it is a good idea to lube the post in the starter housing (the one the pulley slides over) with some graphite or teflon lube.

    Broken pull starter rope


    remove pulley that rope goes on, wind it with new rope, wrap it till it is full, then feed rope thru hole in housing, put pulley back in place, put rope thru pull handle, pull thru till you feel spring catch tie a knot and that should do it......be careful when removing pulley not to dislodge recoil spring

    Starter rope on bv2000 weed eater blower needs to be replaced.


    Hi, Try the following, But make dure you can wind the spring. If not the spring is broken.
    Kurt
    This usually happens at the most inopportune time. You go out mow the lawn, pull the rope and it comes out in your hand. Here's how to fix it yourself.
    First, we'll talk about a simple rope replacement. In most cases you will have to remove the blower housing from the engine to get to the underside of the rewind starter where the rope is. We'll assume at this point that the spring is ok and you can just wind it back up again. You can check the spring by turning on the hub in a counter-clockwise direction and see if the spring gains tension. Do not try to remove the spring from its holder or you may end up having to take the mower in for service.
    1. Remove the rope from around the hub. Since there is no tension, it should come right out. If you are lucky and it broke near one end, you can probably just re-use it. If it is badly frayed or too short, you will need to find a replacement at a local hardware store.
    2. Attach the handle or tie a knot in one end of the rope so it will not wind all the way into the hub. You also may want to burn the rope ends to keep them from fraying and causing a problem in the future. Set the rope aside where you can grab it once you wind up the spring.
    3. Wind the hub in a counter-clockwise direction using your thumb to keep it from unwinding, until the spring is tight. Then let it come back slightly so the rope hole in the starter housing lines up with the rope hole in the hub.
    4. Stick the rope through both holes while holding the hub from unwinding. This is tricky because you don't want the hub to unwind on you before you have the rope secured in it. A pair of needle nose pliers or a small screwdriver or pick may help get the rope through.
    5. Tie a half hitch knot in the rope after you have it through both holes. While holding the rope, release your hold on the hub and let the rope slowly pull itself back into the starter.
    6. Put the blower housing back on and your ready to start the engine & mow.
