Jessie doll string in the pulled position


Sometimes you can get the string cord to release and retract back. Hold the doll firmly and gently pull the string out about an extra two or three millimetres (eighth of an inch) or as much as possible. Keep the string tight for a short while and then allow it to retract slowly. It may take a few attempts, the skill is in pulling the string that little extra distance, holding it for a few moments, then slowly releasing it again.

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,

My pull string wont move on my ryobi x430


Mine seized up and the string wouldn't pull because my girlfriend used it a few times without making sure that the oil was full. I filled the oil well with Marvel Mystery Oil and was able to slowly get the string to move. Eventually the motor became lubricated enough to pull the string with regularity and now the weedeater works perfectly.
