SOURCE: REplacing the pulling cord on a gas trimmer

those are usaully under your pull start cover and if its broke you can buy a new rope but if its broke near handle i would open it and retie it to save ya money. but remember to wind spring a little to keep tension on it before pushing it through the hole for handle.

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

you must take apart the cord recoil and rewind the pull string,inspect string make sure its the same thickness through out if not replace it, not too hard i believe you can do it.

SOURCE: pull cord will not retract

This takes some mechanical skill and knowledge to fix...definitely would take it back..I would have thought these manufacturers could have fixed these idiotic quality control problems by now....it goes on and on and....I know, folks would say..ya get what ya pay for....so in this case, you paid for a useless machine that you never even were able to use...that is NOT what you were SUPPOSED to get now was it!

Whipper snipper wont start


when you pull the rope with the plug out do you get any gas coming out of the plug hole? It sounds to me like you have a faulty carburetor that is causing the unit to load up on gas stopping the piston from being able to move all the way with the plug in it

Husqvarna hedge trimmer hard to pull cord


check the piston inside the cylinder for extreme wear. If it feels sticky and is hard to pull it sounds like a lack of oil in the cylinder and it has started to seize.

I have a Husq. 326 L trimmer; my pull cord seems to tug and becomes almost unpullable and it wont start; I have a new spark plug-what could be causing this?


Pull your plug back out and see if your cylinder is full of fuel, if this is the case your needle/seat is leaking fuel into cylinder causing hydrolocking (gas won't compress) good luck

Pull cord broke on my craftsman gas push edger. I replaced cord but when I pull cord..It wont rewind but I can hear it trying to start


It sounds like you did not properly rewind the spring that is behind the spool that the cord would around, that spring is what rewinds the cord after pulling the cord.

It wont start


First, make sure that the gas mixture is correct (gas and oil mixed in the right proportion). Next, press the primer bulb 3-4 times, turn the choke lever on to Full Choke, and pull the starter cord until the engine seems like to wants to start, but dies. Next, switch the choke lever to Half Choke and start the gas trimmer, giving it gas by pulling on the trigger. Once it has warmed up fully, you may be able to reduce the Half Choke to No Choke, although my 20+ years of experience with dozens and dozens of models tells me that many trimmers run better, although smoking slightly, when you keep them at Half Choke. One last tip, when pulling the cord, try pushing the trimmer away from you with the opposite hand at the exact same time that you are pulling the starter cord--the equal and opposite push-pull technique may sound like something from karate (and it is, in a way), but it is really helpful when trying to start trimmers. Best of luck, Bill

PS: Check you owner's manual (at home or online) for the proper gas/oil mixture. Empty any old gas out and replace the spark plug, if required.

Pull cord won't pull


Check the shaft to see if there is something stuck in there. You can pull the wire shaft out to check. It is wire but looks like a small cable. Good luck...Lee

Craftsman 17" 25cc Trimmer...pull cord stuck


it's doubtful that bad gas caused this, it sounds like the cord was back-lashed and partially came off the recoil pulley. Remove the recoil cover and ensure the cord is all on the pulley, make sure the rewind mechanism works smoothly before re-installing.
