Rope broke


Starter rope is sold at home centers like Lowes and Homedepot. It is important to buy the same thickness of rope so that an ample amount will fit into rewind spool(starter rope is sold by size from 3.5 to 6.5) . Remove the starter cover /fan cover if the starter is riveted to fan cover (or just remove the pull rewind if bolted on). With cover removed, notice how the rope enters thru bushing and ties onto spool. Visualize in which direction the spool turns when you pull the rope. This is the direction that you will be winding the spool. Fish out the old rope and wind the spool in the direction mentioned above. The spool will get tighter as you wind. When the spool will not wind another turn, back-off one turn and align hole in spool to bushing on cover. Insert rope thru bushing into hole and tie knot (any knot that will not obstruct motor parts). At this point allow the rewind to take-in the rope to stop at handle. Test your work. The rope will break if you try to start the washer under load. Press trigger on wand to release pressure. Also the rope is stressed when the operator has a very long strong arm and pulls out the rope to bottom out at the knot. Good luck with your repair

I need to replace pull rope that broke, how do I do this?


You can buy abaca fiber or nylon rope of the same length and size if you can't get an original one. Use the original handle bar for pulling. Tie one end of the rope at the center of the bar handle. Thanks for asking FixYa Customer Support.

Pull rope broke. attached back but cant figure out how to make the rope recall work


The recoil spring has to be pre-loaded about 5 turns, even when the rope is fully returned. When you pull out the rope, you increase this tension, but if you are starting from zero, there won't be enough spring tension to fully recoil the rope. Wind the rope on the spool, then rotate the spool about 5 turns in the direction that would "push" the rope out through the hole. Now put the rope through the hole and put the handle on it. If you got the tension right, it should be sufficient to easily hold the handle up against the hole.

I have honda gcv160 5.5 pressure washer, after sitting over winter, I went to use it, and I can't even pull the cord to try and start it. What are any reccomendations as to what I can do to fix this?


My power washer started doing that after the pull-cord mechanism broke.
I took off the hoses to make sure there was no back-pressure caused by the pump.
And pull rope was still frozen.
We took off the pull rope cover on top of the machine.
The cover came off easy.
After that we lifted out the spring-pulley where the rope is attached the spring unwound and we couldn't get it back together so I bought another one.
We should not have lifted it out ... we should have tried to get it to move first without lifting it up.
In any case the washer worked fine after the replacement.

When you store a power washer, be sure to drain the water and disconnect the hoses.
Don't leave any gasoline in the engine or it will gum up the carburetor.
Never turn a gasoline engine on its side or upside down or the oil will run into carburetor, and carburetor will need work.

The coil rope broke I would like to know how i can repair it. Generator 5500 watt champion.


If I understand correctly, you have a pull-start generator.

The rope to the pull-start broke.

This happened to us out on the job one day.

Our equipment might be different than yours. Our pull-start assembly is held with 4 bolts. Simply remover those bolts and lift off the cover ... carefully. The rope is attached to something I will call a pulley. The rope wraps around the pulley several times.

Do not lift out the pulley that the rope attaches to >> or the spring that re-winds the rope will come un-sprung (at least it did on our machine). If the spring comes unwound, then you got another job, and have to put the spring back also. Your machine might be different.

Keep pulley in place. Remove rope. Get another rope with same diameter and length and put it in.

The pull cord on my pressurewasher just broke How do I fix it?


Usually you have to take the shroud that contains the recoil starter assembly off to get to it. You may have to take it apart to fix the rope. If it broke on the end nearest the starter, you probably have enough rope left to reuse it. Usually they break right at the starter, due the the constant bending and rubbing. Pay attention to how it comes apart, and make sure to rewind your spring before putting the rope back on the pulley, otherwise it will not wind back up.

Can't find replacement recoil kit


What engine is on your presure washer? I really need a model number to give you the correct information.

If you have the engine model number you can look the engine up on the net at:
http://jackssmallengines.com/help.cfm
and find your recoil assy.

If it is just the rope that broke you can take the recoil to any lawn mower repair shop and they will repair your recoil by replacing the needed parts or replace the rope. You do not need to take the whole unit to the lawn mower repair shop. FYI a NEW honda recoil assy ranges from $32.00 - $68.00 depending on net source.

Thanks for using FixYa.
