Your recoil spring is may or may not be busted if it isn't it could be that is not wound up right and if you don't know how to that this is what you do go to ehow.com and look up how to tension the stater cord.

Pull cord will not retract

Sears craftsman manuals?


You can't get sears manuals. If you remove the recoil assembly and turn it over you will be able to turn it. If the spring catches and starts to wind then you know your spring is good and you don't have to replace it. If it doesn't spring when wound replace spring. When ready turn till spring is fully wound ( can't wind anymore without force) then back it off until the rope holes line up. Install rope and handle and retract slowly. Pull handle a few times to make sure its not sticking and retracts properly. Reinstall on engine

How do i rewind the recoil spring on my craftsman lawn mower?


Normally these small engines use a clock spring to retract the rope.
Remove the cover on the top and you should find the spring either broken or the tab where the spring end has broken off or jumped out of the mount.
You will need to pre-load the spring with enough tension to retract the rope.
Remove the pull handle from the rope, load the spring and then wrap the rope around the pully holding the pully and spring in the loaded position. place the end of the rope through the hole and tie up the handle. The rope should pull and retract without being installed on the engine.

Poulan lawn mower cord won't retract


New or used unit? If new can you return it ? If not you will need to take the recoil assembly off the engine and rewind the spring. Check inside the recoil assembly to see if the spring is broken or just popped out of place on either end. If it is broken your done. You will need to find a Poulan dealer to get a new spring. If new take it to a Poulan dealer for warrenty replacement. If you want to try to rewind the spring look to see where one end of the spring fits into the housing and the other into the spool. On the edge of the puley should be a notch. Place the rope in the notch and turn the pulley it in the direction needed to wind the spring about 4 or 5 turns. If it now pulls all the rope in you are done.If not put the rope back in the notch and wind the spring tighter till the rope is all pulled in.

Replaced pull cord on craftsman push mower but wont retract back like its's been pulled all the way out it's all slack. What do i need to do to get it to spring back? It's 5.5hp self propelled mower about...


if you get this the first time get a lottery ticket fast.
take the recoil off and apart, check to see if the spring end is broken off. (sometimes you can bend a new hook into it but it will usually break because its hardened).
buy the way, Usually you can wind a rope around what the recoil connects to, to start the engine at this point.
take the handle off the end of the rope and wind it around the drum/spool leaving a few inches hanging out.
hook both ends of the spring to their stops and wind the spring tighter about four turns, then thread the end of the rope through the hole and pull on the rope and test the recoil. Don't lt it go.
pull the rope out and put a "marline hitch" in it or use a visegrip pliers to hold the rope out and tie the handle back on.
replace recoil.
if the rope looks fuzzy most all hardware stores have it.
good luck

The pull cord will not retract back into the saw. When I tried to start the saw, I pulled the cord and now it did not retract back. It is all the way out and will not recoil.


When I have had this happen it means that you need to manually rewind the cord and put some additional tension on the take up pulley. To do this you'll have to open the saw up and untie the handle. Turn the pulley like one turn, put the rope back through the hole and tie the handle back on. All this is done while maintaining tension on the rope.

Clock spring either broken or un-hooked in inside of pull assembly. you have to take it apart and either re-attach spring or replace spring. Interior of assembly shoul;d be available on-line. You should have model # available.

Recoil rope won't recoil!


-In bnjays case the rope was broken. Sometimes the rope retracks partially or slowly because the surface that the spring edges rub against when retracting the cord, are badly rusted. Disassemble and wire brush the rust off, or leave assembled and spray in thru holes in the pull start with WD40.Avoid getting WD40 on the rope.

Pull cord on chain saw will not retract.


Most of the rancher models are easy to look at. Take the four screws off that hold the starter cover on.When off have a look to see if the pulley is ok or one of the starter dogs(pawls) is jamed . If dogs ok take the screw out of the centre of pulley and remove it ,check for spring tension. if there is just be carful to leave sring in housing. look at spring if broken or out of shape renew it and rope.check for cracks in pulley. When renewing spring and rope get correct rope length and diameter. don't over tension new spring. hop this helps
