I have a RY60512 and it did the same thing I removed the starter housing assembly and sprayed the inside with a lot of WD40 and worked it around and manualy rewound the cord by sticking a small skinny screw driver into one of the molded holes and just kept working it untill it started to rewind. I discovered that it filled up with water and the spring got rusty it takes a little bit of doing but finally got to work .also there are two spring loaded dogs that catch on the engine that needed to be WD40 as well. through research I discovered that the starter housing assembly is the same for both models and are still available.
The starter assembly is between the motor and boom so you have to remove the boom from the motor housing. Usually one nut & bolt at the nose of the starter housing. There may be another lock bolt. You shouldn't have to remove the throttle cable and leads but it depends on how tight the factory installed them. Remove the starter housing. If you're real lucky all you have to do is pull some starter rope up past the pulley and wind the pulley in the direction the rope pulls back into the housing. You have to pull the rope around the pulley as you wind it. If the spring catches and builds tension you're good, wind it four or five times or enough to fully pull the rope back in. If the spring doesn't catch or releases every two or three turns it has to be replaced. You may have to replace the spring and container (PN638033001) and/or the easy start assembly (PN310022001).
