SOURCE: ryobi 990r trimmer

alot of trimmers now have limiter caps on the carbruetors to keep the homeowner from making adjustments due to epa regulations and the ethanol fuel is 10% is not good either
So unless you have access to or a way to remove the caps for adjustments its a hard fix
you could remove the carb. and take apart to make sure the rubber pieces are still pliable.
the fuel will harden them over time and the carb will not deliver fuel to engine properly.
check you fuel lines to make sure they are not cracked or broken

SOURCE: Gentlemen, I have a Mighty lite Trimmer of which

I have the same problem....the cord remains out...so I pulled it apart and discovered that the recoil wheel that the cord rewinds onto does not stay where it is supposed to and rides upward catching on the fixings that hold it in place. When i pressed it down the cord retratcts immediatley. Only problem is it does not stay there. It was only used three times.

It has everything to do with being a cheap product. I should have paid a little more and bought a better product. Will not buy homelite again.

Ryobi line trimmer cord won't retract. We have been told needs new spring, no parts? what can we do


They sell starter springs for Ryobi recoil units right here on the internet. Why do you say...no parts? Are you in Austrailia? Go on this site and enter the model of the trimmer to observe the parts available for it. If you don't like the price, at least you'll have an idea of the part number and pricing too.

I have a Ryobi 700R trimmer - I need to know how to replace the pull cord - Tom


If your pull cord is still attached to the grab handle, it's likely your spring is still wound. Follow this if this is the case:
1. Disconnect the shaft by removing the small set screw and the clamp - pull the shaft out of the engine body.
2. Remove the recoil assembly (About 5-5 torx bolts).
3. Pull the cord until the stops and use a small piece of wood acting as a wedge to jam between the recoil and the housing.
4. Cut the line and pull the knotted terminating end from the hosing.
5. Keep the wedge tight so it does not spin back. If this happens, you will simply need to rewind the spring back (about five turns) and re-wedge it.

Use proper line and reverse for new line. Good luck!

Pulley cord wont go down unable to start on gas trimmer


Your cord wont recoil?

You should remove the recoil cover and see if you can rewind the rope manually.

It isnt too hard and will let you know immediately if you need to replace the recoil.

Just the recoil unit by loosening the three or four bolts and lift it off the trimmer. Turn it over and look at the recoil spool. There should be a notch in it. This is were you catch a bit of the starter rope and start turning it in the direction of normal rotation. Normal rotation will put tension on the recoil spring.
When you put 4-6 turns into it just let it recoil and see if it pulls all the rope back in. That's it. If the cord didnt recoil something inside the recoil has broken and you need to get the unit serviced or replaced. Most of the time the cost of repairing something like this is prohibitive. Its a better idea to just replace the whole unit.

Good luck and be careful!

Howdo I fit a new pull start cord on a ryobi 25cc


remove the plastic housing to gain access to the recoil. Pull the cord slowly all the way out,this will cause the spring to wind up.Clamp the recoil wheel so it will not return to its original position,be carefull the recoil has tension on it not remove the old pull rope and thread the new one in and thru the hole of the recoil tie knot.pull on the cord to take tension off and at the same time remove clamp. Slowly allow the recoil to wind the rope in and reinstall on unit.
