Just installed starter rope wont tetrieve

I gather this is on a pull starter for a motor? There is a large coiled spring that is wound around the pulley that the rope coils on. IT has to be rewound and set properly so that when you pull start it, the spring coils tight and then when you release, it rewinds the cord. These springs can be dangerous.

The plug prong broke on my Electrolux Epic 6500 SR vacuum. I cut it off and was going to replace it with a new plug. However, I mistakenly rewound the cord and it went all the way into the body.

You will likely have to install a new cord reel. Cord reels have a long tightly wound steel spring which can fly out causing injury if you attempt to take it apart.

Rope needs rewound, got tangled up , had to remove the 4 nuts, now need to get in back on wound tight

I assume that you are speaking of a pull start mechanism.
I can not imagine how to put a put pull starter back on "wound tight". Your pulling on the cord tightens a spring which pulls the cord back in. They go back together with the cord fully wound onto the spool.
Usually, I only take these apart to replace the cord. Wind the new cord onto the spool without handle. Reassemble, then pull out on the cord a little when attaching the handle to the cord. This is the only way to get tension onto the spring at the fully retracted position because the catch for the spring is on the machine and the spring itself is on the underside what you are assembling.
If you do not wish to shorten the cord or replace it, then remove the handle, assemble enough to catch the spring, wind one turn tighter then feed rope through hole and reattach handle. Easier said than done.
If your spring is broken, then you will be needing a new one.

Go to your local small engine supply store with the model an serial numbers. you can buy the spring all ready wound and in a metal container that will drop right in and you will be set togo.

Starter recoil spring reload, How?

If the spring is unwound.
Recoil Spring Rewind
I invert and secure the starter housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection and both hands). I am right handed so I tension the spring enough to insert it inside the previous coil while holding what has already been installed with my left about 180° from my right hand. The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely rewound. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. It will require about 2 turns of pretension for it to retract properly.

If the starter cord needs a pretension, this works quite well.

Pull cord for a cs30 broke how do you replace it? yes i know about the 4 torx screws. does the torque converter just pop off?

Here is a general overview of what you need to do.
1. Get a new cord
2. Remove the old cord from t-handle.
3. Remove cover of starter pully & old cord( pay attention to which way it is wound or mark w/ an arrow).
4. Tie new cord onto pully & wind.
5. Now you need to pre-load the re-winder spring. ( If you need help with this write me a comment & I can help).
6. Holding the rewound spring, thread the cord through the cover and t-handle and tie.
7. reattach the cover.
Hope this helps,

Power cord will not retract

It sounds like the rewinder spring either came off the retainer or broke. If it broke it must be replaced. If it just came off, it can be put back on and rewound. It is a LONG flat piece if springsteel which is VERY sharp. Be Careful.
