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.

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.

I had to replace the rope on my Mantis and cant figure out how to get the spring back in , Help ??


This can be a difficult job for the inexperienced. It can also be potentially dangerous if the spring pops out while you are trying to install it. My advice. Take it to a small engine repair shop and save yourself the headache. Cost should not exceed $20.00.

My pull cord will not retract


The coil spring has either broken or come loose inside the pull rope housing. You must disassemble the housing to fix it.

Trying to put on pull cord on tiller.


you remove the cover, bend three tabs and the wheel will come out. Replace the cord in the manner that it is removed, rewind spring and install wheel, then bend the tabs back down.

Spring replacement


Replacing the spring on this tiller can be tough. You have to get the tension spring set into the stop and partially wind the tension (by turning the cord pulley) and THEN attach the cord before completing winding the tension spring. It took me about an hour to figure out how much preset of tension was needed before I was able to get it to work. You have to partially preset tension because starting from zero will not fully rewind the cord.

Pull cored


You'll probably have to bring it to the repair shop, before that, you may try to remove the cage where the rope is coiled in normally and see if the knot is there, and then get some new rope, match the length, make a new knot, well you get my drift.

Handle ripped off Mantis tiller


Good job on the cord replacement. Most people take the cover off the spring and then find out it is nearly impossible to get the spring tension set. I have personally repaired dozens of these cords that have been messed up by owners that did that.
If anyone has this problem, just do what this post says...remove the assembly and turn the pulley until you can get to the part of the cord that is broken...grab the end that is broken after you get it out of the opening with a vise grip and pull the cord out fully and lock the recoil spring with a vise or vise grip (but don't crush it)...then replace the cord and hold the end of the cord pull fully extended and remove the lock and allow the spring to recoil...and reinstall the assembly.
Simple, but THINK before you take the housing apart. It is REALLY TOUGH to reset spring tension properly.

Pull cord stuck


it sounds like the recoil spring in the "housing" is jammed( or something is broken) youll have to take this apart without breaking it. you may have internal engine damage if it was unusually hot and the pullcord jammed. try using a richer oil mixture for fuel also if you fix the pullcord. hope this helps, keep me posted.
