Hello Mark;
Please watch this if no help reply below and I will remove the completion so others may comment. About 60 seconds in I think addresses your problem. If you have broken and repaired the spring multiple times maybe time for a new spring.

My Makita circular power saw works then stops working, then starts again. Why is this happening?


Things to check: With the saw running, safely grab the cord by the boot and pull and twist it around. This is where a break frequently occurs inside the cord and when the saw is held in certain positions the break will either open or close. If the cord's OK, unplug the saw and remove the brush caps and check the brushes. If the brushes are less than 1/4" long or the springs are burnt or broke they won't make good contact with the armature. If the cord & brushes are OK your next recourse is to replace the switch (Makita PN 651172-0).

Pull cord is tangled


Unusual, but it does happen. Probably should replace cord. Obtain new cord, can be found at almost any hardware store, then remove top engine cover (cowl), usually held on by 4 bolts,two in front and two in back.If your mower has a plastic cover on top of cowl, remove it first. Remove old cord by holding wheel (looks kind of like a pulley) so that it does not spin freely once old cord is cut. Cut cord anywhere outside of the housing as close to the housing as possible. Carefully release the wheel so that it can unwind. You will see where the old cord is tied to the wheel. use needle nose pliers and grab hold of the knot and pull old cord out. Now for the fun part. You need to "rewind" the spring by turning the wheel clockwise while looking at the inside of the housing. Once you have turned the wheel to a point where you might break the spring, back off one turn to be sure you have not over wound the spring. Usually, about 5 or 6 turns of the wheel clockwise is enough, use your own judgment. The tighter you can get the spring, the better the recoil will be when you let loose the cord when starting engine. You need to line up the hole in the wheel to the hole in the cowl as close as possible. Use a screwdriver or some other small sturdy object to "lock" wheel in place for next step. There is plenty of openings through the cowl in which you can lock the wheel to keep it stationary while attaching the new cord and to keep the holes lined up as close a possible. It can be difficult to "fish" the new cord from the outside of the housing and into the holes through which you need to pull the new cord through. I have found that if you take a flame to melt the end of the cord so that it will not unravel makes it easier and if you can bear the heat, while the cord is soft from the heat, twist cord in a spiral shape. This will make "fishing" much easier.Once accomplished, tie a knot as close to the end of the cord as possible and pull line back towards the outside with a little strength to "seat" the knot. Remove screwdriver and let the tension of the spring rewind the new cord into the housing. If the spring completely unwinds then pull on the cord from the outside so the wheel turns at a minimum of on turn so there is always tension on the new cord. Route the new cord through the eye on the mower handle then install pull knob. Pull excess line through pull knob, tie knot, then cut off excess cord. Should be ready to go.

Pull cord will not retract


The main spring breaks out of the center piece that the rope is wound on. You have to take the broken end of the flat spring out, file a special divit into the spring steel the same as the stock end was (NEVER BEND SPRING STEEL), wire the spring coil at least five places or it will explode in your fingers, and then insert your new end into the center piece with a twisting action. Now pack the spring up into the unit while releasing the five wire ties on your coil with the last action pressing downward with your thumbs so the spring is in there and the rope is wrapped on the center piece - ready to revolve the spring and get more tension as the rope comes out.
I did this in an aluminum boat on a 9.9 Mercury motor in the middle of a Northern lake one time!

Draining old gas before winter storeage helps to reduce endless pull starts which break these springs. A good trick is to take out the spark plug and load it with a squirt of new gas rather than pulling very old gas down the carburator line into your engine which makes you pull the chord forever without results, and break the spring.

The rope does not retract when the cord is pulle... how do I fix it


Has the cord been replaced? If so, when the old one broke, the spring will completely unwind. The trick is to rewind the spring first, attach the new cord and wind it around the spool while holding the spring tension. After the cord is wound, feed the end out through the cord port and test for good return (don't let go!!), then clamp the cord with locking pliers and affix the handle to the cord. Melting the cord ends helps keep the knots from pulling out. Hope this helps!

The pull cord has com undone an the coil spring unwound


Did the cord break or just have an end knot pull out. If a knot pulled out, it will help to melt the cord end with a match or lighter and make a small lump which helps keep the knot from undoing (make sure not to use the open flame near the fuel!). Rewind the spring first, then fit the cord and work it around the outside of the spool while wedging it to keep it from unwinding again. Check by pulling it through and watching for uniform movement of the cord. The spring should never completely wind up and bind. Hope this helps!

The pull string will not pull out to start the


Remove the starter mechanism from the saw and try to turn the flywheel--it should turn freely except when the piston is rising against compression. If ok, pull the starter cord and watch for twisted cord or a damaged/split spool. Try to turn the spool CW by hand to see if it is bound up by something. Was the starter cord just replaced? If so, maybe the return spring was over-wound and can't be turned further. Hope this helps!

We have a briggs and stratton sovereign petrol mower the pull cord has gone loose no give so unable to start mower


Hi,
If I'm understanding you correctly, the pull chord is out and will not retract so you can pull again?
If this is so, I'm thinking that there may be some obstruction keeping your spring from returning the rope. The spring is wound like a clock spring. When you pull the rope, the spring wants to bring it back. Sometimes a twig or dirt or other type of abnormality might prevent the spring from retracting your pull rope.
You might need to loosen the engine cover to remove the obstruction.
Good luck!

Bosch cannister vac: Cord is stuck--won't rewind


It probably is, these cords are usually 15-25' long ;-)
What you can asssume is that the cord is simply twisted upon itself and doubled up so cannot easily come out, and will not go in... therefore.
Pull gently on the cord and twist in a clockwise direction. Does the cord seem to get a bit longer? If not, or if it gets tighter, try counterclockwise. If you keep trying eventually it will loosen and you can fully extend the cord. Compare this to holding a piece of string between your hands by the thumb and index fingers. Hold one end still and twist the other 20 times (twisting the string). then relax the string between your hands. See how it immediately forms a loop? That is the problem with your cordreel too. There is a loop in there that we need to undo. Now pull a bit so you can still see the loop, and then start untwisting to see what happens. You can also do this with a YoYo ;-)

Be patient, observe, sensitize your tactile senses and see if you can figure out which direction loosens your cord - and get it out ;-)

Good Luck
Hopefully you wont have to take it all apart. that cordreel spring is very strong. Be careful if you do go in there.
