This can be done ... but you got to pay attention while you take it apart. Also, when it is apart, you must visualize how it works ... mane sure you wind it the right way ... put a figure "8" know on both ends. You may need a Torx to disassemble it.

I hope this works for you

Why leaf blower hardly pull to star


RUNNING THE MACHINE WITH THE WRONG FUEL MIXTURE COULD BE THE FIRST CULPRIT. IF YOU WERE RUNNING TO HOT YOU COULD BE DEFORMING THE CYLINDER WALLS AND CREATE A PROBLEM THAT IS NOT FUN. TAKE THE PLUG OUT AND TRY TO SQUIRT A LITTLE WD-40 IN CYLINDER CHAMBER. WITH PLUG STILL OFF PULL CORD A FEW TIMES. SEE IF THAT HELPS. IF NO HELP MOST LIKELY BY A NEW ONE. GOOD LUCK PAL.

I have a Homelite Mighty Lite 26cs gas weed **** and the starter cord will not retract into the weed ****. How can I get it to retract so it can be pulled to start the weed ****?


This is somewhat common in the the "zip start" machines. The recoil pulley is 2 plastic housings with a round coil spring between them. It is designed to need less effort to pull and start the machine. When pulled on with great effort/frustration, the middle spring bends and damages the upper housing. The only semi-permanent solution is to replace the pulley assembly. The part is relatively cheap thru Homelite.com. If you can do it yourself, go for it. A repair shop will most likely charge you $20 to $40 in labor to do this.

The unit is under warranty. The person you talked to must be new. Find a warranty service center in your area. Take your receipt with you and they should be able to take care of it for you.

Leaf blower


One suggestion, unscrew the spark plug and reconnect the high voltage wire. In a very dark area move the plug so that the plug thread touches some metal on the engine. Pull the starter cord. If you don't see a spark, remove the two screws on the handle and see if two wires are attached to the Stop Engine Switch. Remove one wire and bend it away from metal and try to see spark when pulling the start cord. If spark occurs, the Switch is shorted and needs replacing.
