Hello cosorio70:

You can Get a Manual from the Following Site Addy;
https://register.homelite.com/contact_us/new and Fill Out the Required Information. Remember to have the UT Number if this Unit has One.
>>The Following is the Instruction File for Setting the Air Mixture Screws. Any Input is Appreciated. The Procedure is the Same for 1 or 2 Mixture Screws, Just Use the Instruction File and Skip Over the Section with the Missing Mixture Screw ( Usually the H Mixture Screw).
>>Now Setting the Air Mixture Screws:
>>****Turn the Idle Air (L) and Main Air (H) Mixture Screws In Until SNUG **Do Not Jam** Then Reverse Both Screws 1 1/2 Turns. Set the Throttle Full Open, Start the Engine.
>>Turn the Main Air (H) Mixture Screw Clockwise Until Proper Revs are Obtained. **Carefully Use your Finger and Move the Governor Arm to Rev the Engine (on Chainsaws and Trimmers Use the Trigger to Rev the Engine) Until you Reach Max RPMs (on Chainsaws and Trimmers, the RPMs are Not Set to MAX. Set to Max and then Reverse the Setting Screw 1/4 or 1/2 Turn. If the H Mixture Screw is Set too High; the Engine will be Starved for the Oil in the Gas and Damage the Piston and Jug/Cylinder) and the Engine is Running Proper at Full Throttle Up a Grade and for Chainsaws and Trimmers they Do Not Bog DOwn Under a Load. Occasionally you May have to Turn this Counter Clockwise to Achieve the Proper Revs.**
>>Now Allow the Engine to Idle. Set the Engine Idle Screw (Not Idle Air) so the Engine will Stay Running if Required.

SOURCE: how do i replace the pull cord on the ht-22

Remove the housing with the coil in it. Remove the screw on it, its the screw with about 3/8 washer on it. It is where the old rope was hooked up, and should still have a piece of it under the washer. It has a D shaped groove under it. take the new rope and burn the frays on it make it stiff and small. Turn the pulley around and around until it gets real tight, and align the hole in the pulley with the hole in the shroud. Take a c clamp or visegrips and clamp it in place if you can. I just hold it, then feed the rope through the hole in the shroud and pulley and rap it round D shape groove. Replace the screw and washer. Tighten it up then let go of pulley. It should zip up real quick and all way to the handle, and be real tight.

SOURCE: homelite hedge trimmer , motor runs but blades do

Had the same problem: when I turn on the trimmer, the motor would hum but the blades won't move.
What I did:
1. Sprayed a ton of wd40 between the blades
2. Took a screwdriver and kinda wedged it between the blades to get them unstuck. Also removed some guck between the blades.
And it worked!

I have a shark vacuum cleaner bought through your ad on TV. Best cleaner I ever owned, unfortunately my daughters puppy chewed through the cord,Can not find able an Arkansas dealer to repair this.


You can use google to find and order the correct replacement cord which should cost about $15-20 and then you will need to find someone with basic tools who can replace the cord for you. It is pretty easy to do.

Briggs & Stratton 9000 diagram/repair manual. For the pull cord assembly. FREE


If you are going to be repairing B&S air cooled engines, may I suggest that you make a handy tool for repairing the pull cord starter. To access the pull cord assembly, remove the blower housing to expose the backside of the pull starter. All of the B&S pull start engines have a starter clutch that secures the flywheel to the crankshaft. These clutches go bad after a while. Go to a local repair shop and ask if you can have an old B&S starter clutch. Take it apart and keep the spindle. Have someone weld a T bar handle to the spindle. You will use this to reload the spring in the recoil starter, winding backwards to load the spring. Use a C clamp to hold it in place after loading the spring. Insert the new nylon pull rope through the grommet and out through the hole in the rope spool. Tie a figure 8 knot in the end of the new rope. Slowly release the C clamp to allow the spool to rewind, loading itself with new pull cord. You need about +/- 20 inches of pull cord. Replace the rubber handle on the pull cord and you are ready to mount to blower housing back on the engine. I hope this helps. PS. See the attached url for the Operator's Manual for the 9000 horizontal. http://www.tranzsporter.com/tpdf/Briggs%20&%20Stratton%209000.pdf

Replacing pull cord on craftsman model 917-379470


Michele, first make sure there is enough cord left for a good pull. Slightly burn the end to melt it and stop it fraying when it goes back in. Turn the assembly over and wind it manualy anti clockwise until it stops due to the spring being tight. Ask someone to thread the cord through the hole on the top of the assembly and push it through until it comes out the other side. When its through put a knot in the end and then get your help to pull it back through. Release the thing with the spring slowly and it should pull the cord back in for you.This should fix it.

Pull cord engaging


recoil clutch fingers are broken or stuck. Take the recoil cover off and look at it while pulling the cord to see if the fingers arent coming out. If the fingers are still coming out then you have worn out grooves on starter cone where fingers engage to turn the motor. If the recoil is damaged a new one can be purchased as a unit from Troy Bilt online for a reasonable price.
