Take the flywheel cover off and see what has it stuck.if it is the square nut that the rope pulley goes on the it needs some oil put in the hole on the end of should turn to the left and not turn without turning the flywheel to the right.once you have it where it will turn easily to the left it should pull the pull rope back in after the engine cranks.if the flywheel won't turn to the right then you have a locked up motor.

Model 60520 cultivator. Pull cord is fully extended and won't return. How do I get it to rewind?

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.

I have a Ryobi 700R trimmer - I need to know how to replace the pull cord - Tom

If your pull cord is still attached to the grab handle, it's likely your spring is still wound. Follow this if this is the case:
1. Disconnect the shaft by removing the small set screw and the clamp - pull the shaft out of the engine body.
2. Remove the recoil assembly (About 5-5 torx bolts).
3. Pull the cord until the stops and use a small piece of wood acting as a wedge to jam between the recoil and the housing.
4. Cut the line and pull the knotted terminating end from the hosing.
5. Keep the wedge tight so it does not spin back. If this happens, you will simply need to rewind the spring back (about five turns) and re-wedge it.

Use proper line and reverse for new line. Good luck!
