SOURCE: gas weed eater pull cord wont retract after pulling cord

remove the cover and the screw holding the recoil down, turning the pulley ccw should release the spring then wind rope around pulley and (hopefully yours has the slot in it) wind in the direction of the pulley teeth then, holding rope in slot put back on spring and wind cw till almost tight, and install screw. Usually you can do this without taking rope handle off. sometimes you have to remove handle. look at spring end in the middle and make sure its not broke as long as you have it apart. Its a easy fix.
Thanks for using fixya

SOURCE: cord won't retract

The spring is either broken or the catch on the end of it isn't seated, this is a coil spring inside the hub, probaly has to be rewound to gain the tension back

Testimonial: "thanks for the feedback. i was thought it was the spring. just can't figure out how to keep the spring in place while putting everything back together"

SOURCE: how to sort broken pull cord on petrol strimmer

Hi Baz, i will tell you a generic way of doing this as i don't know the model of your strimmer.
on the pull cord housing you will have 3 or 4 screws to secure the housing to the motor body, undo these. the housing will lift away from the main motor body, underneath this cover you will see a spring canister, there may be a screw or clip keeping this in place or some are just secured with the outcover. remove this canister you should see a coil spring in the middle and a groove around the outside where the cord goes. you should see a knot inside the cord grove where the cord is threaded through to secure, remove thisand remove old cord. Now the trickky bit! some times it helps to have a helping had, you will need to turn the coil spring so it tights up to its full tightness, then thread the new cord into the secureing hole where the old cord was located, then when you release the spring this will coil the cord round the cord groove. replace the pull handle on the end of the cord so there is no slack and replace on to motor in reverse order. Hope this helps.

How can I replace starter pull cord?


Hi James:
Replacing any starter cord is usually a matter of removing the pull start assembly, pulling the cord until it is completely unwound, block the reel so it cannot retract, remove the old cord, (remember EXACTLY how it was connected), install a new cord, unblock the reel so it can retract, re-install the assembly.
It may be necessary to remove covers or engine shrouds to get to the pull start assembly. That's part of the fun of "do-it-yourself".
Cheers..

Pull cord binding when mounted on engine but not when removed from engine


When you assemble the Recoil Starter, push it down onto the blower easily and then pull the cord slowly. It should drop into position as you slowly pull the cord.

Starting up Ryobi Petrol Strimmer


full choke on , push petrol bubble 5 times then pull starter cord., with luck it will kick in to life after a 20/30 secs put on half choke , run again for 30 secs the no ckoke.

The main problem with Ryobi products is that they flood very very easly. So the more time you try and pump petrol into the carb the more it will flood . If that happenes then choke off and switch off and then just pull starter cord for about 30 secs then switch on and it could start if not prime it again as above good luck

Da Lite projector screen will not retract. It is pulled all the way down


After pulling the screen down to the desire length, The mechanism will lock itself once you stop pulling.

To retract it, you need to pull the cord down again and allow the screen to retract on its own. The screen will retract rapidly at first but will slow down to a gentle stop when it reaches the case.

Try it.
