    i'm lost here...the "coil" is what attaches to the spark plug...are you talking about the re-coil ?? where the starter rope goes ???

  • gillie611 Jun 01, 2010

    Yes, we r trying to merely change the starter rope and in undoing the caseing the large "coil" unwound and is v stiff and diff to wind, hold and keep tight in order to pop the "housing" back on top without it violently unwinding cutting fingers! just wondered if there was an easier way! would never believe this was only way to change starter rope!

Winding it in is the only way to put the spring back in the housing. Start with the outer end, and wind to the inside, until all the spring is seated in the housing..Now...the wheel sits in the center. There's a hook on the spring and it mates to a tab on the recoil wheel when it's put on. No locking in place required, it'll stay in place from the spring tension as it wraps around...once the wheel is in place, start turning (winding up) the wheel in the same direction as if the rope was pulling on it. Keep winding til it stops, and hold it there. Slowly let it back up until the hole in the wheel (where the knot will be) is aligned with the hole in the housing where the rope goes thru. have a friend feed the rope thru the hole in the housing, thru the hole in the wheel, make a knot, and tuck it in the slot. Keep holding the wheel, and attach the handle to the other end. Slowly let it go until the rope winds in as it should...Done...

How do I remove knob from Magimix 2-Slice Vision Toaster with out damaging it?


Do not try to just pull it off, you will likely damage difficult to repair parts.

On the underside remove 6 pozidrive screws 3 each end (one under the crumb tray)
Standing on its base - open the doors and remove 4x countersunk torx T10 screws, near the top, that screw from the inside into the end covers.
Now remove the opposite end to the knob, (in order to learn how it is held). Pull the bottom away from the base to the left, around 5 mm, and slide the whole end cover upwards, it unclips at the top. The other end is not so easy of course because of the knob. Release the cover, as before. It is possible - with the knob at the top, pull the bottom of the cover out 5mm and push hard to slide it upwards as before. The cover will release from its top mount. Then slide the cover all the way up, as far as the knob slot will allow. This will allow you see and have access to the back of the knob and the plastic clip that holds it in place. Stand the toaster on its base, with the end cover lifted up it is easy to put your hand inside the cover from the top and putting your thumb and forefinger around the bar you can grip the plastic hook and ease it downwards whilst you use your other hand to pull the knob and its firmly attached bar away. It will be necessary to wiggle the knob up and down whilst pulling it outwards. The bar surface is not flat, it has ridges that hold it in place quite well, even without the clip, hence the need to work it up and down. That's all there is to it! Hopefully you haven't broken the clip off, but if you have, don't worry you will still be able to use the toaster with little impact. The attached photo shows a close up of the knob and bar just separated from the mechanism. This should give an idea of what you are up against.
What a fantastically well made machine this is, a real pleasure to work on.

The starter cord jammed on recoiling, after attempting got release it the recoil spring rewound, now the cord and spring are interlocked. I'm looking to strip the recoil mechanism but I believe I


Its an easy opperation to undertake if you know how. Take note of where everything goes during the stripping down of the recoil assembly. Use eye protection when trying to recoil the rewind spring, they have a tendency to jump back out at you while coiling them back in. easiest way is to start by putting the hooked end into the plastic housing and work your way inwards coiling it back in. Then place the starter cord roller in on top, adding the one or two black sliders, the washer and the spring clip to hold it all in place.

The pull start on my Champion Chain Saw does not re-wind. How may the problem be rectified? Many thanks.


This is a messy frustrating job, and if you had to put a price on the hassle that it is, it is probably better to pay somebody else to do it. That said, remove the starter cover with the cord and pulley inside. If there is a plate holding down the cord pulley, remove it and carefully lift out the pulley, try not to dislodge the recoil spring as this is where the frustration part comes in. Remove the old cord and insert the new cord end into the hole and copy the old knot - pass the other end of the cord through the eyelet in the cover. N.B. At this time take note of the direction that the recoil spring coil is orientated. Wind about 3/4 of the cord around the pulley and attach the start handle to the outside end of the cord. Carefully fit the pulley over the spring and place the cord into the cutout in the pulley. Wind up the pulley so that it engages in the curl in the inside of the recoil spring and further wind up the pulley in the opposite direction of the normal pulley start pull, holding the cord in the little cut-out so that the cord does not wind up as you wind the spring. It probably takes about 5 extra turns on the pulley to get the recoil tension right. Always hold the pulley in place to prevent the spring from jumping out. Release the cord so it can retract and replace the retaining plate. This is all if the spring does not jump out - which it so often does.

If the spring jumps out, hold it by the inside portion and start winding it up, pulling it tight to keep the coil small enough to fit back into its receptacle, . Once the spring is wound up and will fit into its position the problem starts. I found that gripping the spring with an alligator jaw vice grip will allow you to replace the spring and carefully release it without it going wild again, engaging the outer hook in its retaining slot or around its peg. Trying to feed the spring into position coil by coil seldom works, it has to be wound up outside and then inserted, especially on a small motor.

This procedure is as difficult to explain as it is to carry out. I have done many cord replacements and always dread the next one. If you have any problems, feel free to come back to me.

Recoil starter slipping how do i remove it for inspection


There are usually three or four bolts that hold the starter mechanism onto the machine top cover. These may be located under a plastic trim over the motor - you do not state what machine it is but these instructions woyld cover most makes.

I used a slim jim to unlock my door and now it can't be unlocked using the key. I read that the lock rods may be detached but I can't figure out how they were attached to begin with. What do I do?


If you've taken the door panel off, you should be able to find the lock rod just tangling in the door freely. There are a couple of different ways it could attach depending on what kind of car your working on.
  • The end of rod could be straight with a threaded end. There would be a plastic clip on the lock that would snap around the threaded end to hold it in place.
  • If the end of the lock rod is L shaped then the plastic clip on the lock would have a hole in the center of it. Insert the L shaped end into the hole and then the plastic clip will have a tail that will swivel around and clip onto the lock rod to lock it into place.
  • There's also a chance you could have broken the plastic clip with your slim jim and it's laying in the bottom of the door. In that case you would have to get a new clip.

What kind of car is this?

Can't pull off the plastic "grille" to clean the filter.


I usually clean condenser coils from the back by removing the lower back panel. The cover below the door is attached by clips on each end. Usually rocking the panel up and down while pulling out at the top then bottom will loosen those clips and allow for removal.
