How do I replace the recoil spring in a Echo pb-400 blower

I have the starter apart. The new spring has a band around it to keep it tight. I can't figure out how to remove it (or do I remove it?)

SOURCE: starter rope on bv2000 weed eater blower needs to be replaced.

Hi, Try the following, But make dure you can wind the spring. If not the spring is broken.
Kurt
This usually happens at the most inopportune time. You go out mow the lawn, pull the rope and it comes out in your hand. Here's how to fix it yourself.
First, we'll talk about a simple rope replacement. In most cases you will have to remove the blower housing from the engine to get to the underside of the rewind starter where the rope is. We'll assume at this point that the spring is ok and you can just wind it back up again. You can check the spring by turning on the hub in a counter-clockwise direction and see if the spring gains tension. Do not try to remove the spring from its holder or you may end up having to take the mower in for service.
1. Remove the rope from around the hub. Since there is no tension, it should come right out. If you are lucky and it broke near one end, you can probably just re-use it. If it is badly frayed or too short, you will need to find a replacement at a local hardware store.
2. Attach the handle or tie a knot in one end of the rope so it will not wind all the way into the hub. You also may want to burn the rope ends to keep them from fraying and causing a problem in the future. Set the rope aside where you can grab it once you wind up the spring.
3. Wind the hub in a counter-clockwise direction using your thumb to keep it from unwinding, until the spring is tight. Then let it come back slightly so the rope hole in the starter housing lines up with the rope hole in the hub.
4. Stick the rope through both holes while holding the hub from unwinding. This is tricky because you don't want the hub to unwind on you before you have the rope secured in it. A pair of needle nose pliers or a small screwdriver or pick may help get the rope through.
5. Tie a half hitch knot in the rope after you have it through both holes. While holding the rope, release your hold on the hub and let the rope slowly pull itself back into the starter.
6. Put the blower housing back on and your ready to start the engine & mow.

Turn on ignition switch, Choke, prime bulb 5 times (or until fuel flows), hold throttle down and pull starter cord sharply until it tries to start, then place choke in mid position pull cord sharply again until it runs then move choke to off when it will allow it.
Also you can go to toro.com then customer care, then manuals and parts then type in model no. and download an owners manual.

SOURCE: Echo backpack blower stops after 20 minutes

Make sure the fuel tank cap inlet valve is working properly, this will allow a vapor lock if it is not. Then check the fuel line in tank to make sure the pickup filter is not hung up in tank thereby allowing the fuel to get below the pickup. Also check the fuel line for holes. You can also try toro.com customer care, manuals and parts, type in model no. then get owners manual and see if in troubleshooting section it list this problem.

Pull cord


This is caused by a broken recoil spring. It can be replaced (or sometimes repaired) but it can be a dangerous and dirty job. The spring is cheap, so get a quote from a local shop for repairs.

Where do you find the serial number of a echo PB403T


Model and serial number are underneath the recoil starter, on the engine block. Tip the blow on it's non-engine side and look right above the tank from underneath the blower.

Replace pull cord


Echo is one of the easiest pull cords to fix, remove the screws on the rewind and take off the motor and flip it over and pull old rope out and put new rope in wind the spring the correct way so when you pull rope it tightens spring so it will wind back up when let go, not winding too tight !

How do you rewind the starter rope spring on an Echo PB-200 Blower.


assuming the spring has not broken behind the pulley causeing this problem you should be able to just re tension the spring, hook the starter rope into the slot in the side of the pulley, this will allow you to wind the pulley ( in the direction that the engine rotates ) up, when you have turned it enough times that the spring is coil bound ( be careful as the spring will be under a great deal of tension ) release the pulley then one whole turn, now unhook the starter rope and allow the spring to recoil ( dont just let it fly back ) and wind the rope in.

Cord is locked, or maybe its the motor. Its an Echo PB260L Backpack


This is easy enough to check. There are 4 screws that secure the recoil starter to the engine. Remove these 4 screws and remove the starter assembly. Pull on the rope and see if the starter is operating properly. If not, go to your local Echo dealer and get a new one...they are about $30. Also try to turn the starter cup by hand to see if the engine is locked up. If the engine is locked up, remove the spark plug and try to turn the starter cup again. If it is still locked up, then the repairs would cost more than a new blower.
Good luck!

The cord sounds like its came loose and won't spin the engine


you need to remove the re-coil mechanism and if the cord isnt too bad retie it on the recoil and rewind the recoil spring and reassemble to the blower

I just replaced the recoil \\starter rope on my blower


Are you sure you have the right length rope??? If you are sure the rope length is correct you may have wound the recoil spring too tight causing it to run out of travel. You want the recoil spring just tight enough to pull the rope all the way in.

Ho spark on a pb 403t backpack blower


Be sure you have no spark ( 90% of the units that come into my shop for repair with the complaint of no spark- have a fuel issue). Be sure the spark plug is good.
If no spark then remove the ground wire from the module and check for spark again. You must use the recoil starter- spinning by hand is not sufficient. If still no spark then replace module. If there is spark with the ground wire disconnected then there is a problem with the kill switch or a bad wire.
