This is somewhat common in the the "zip start" machines. The recoil pulley is 2 plastic housings with a round coil spring between them. It is designed to need less effort to pull and start the machine. When pulled on with great effort/frustration, the middle spring bends and damages the upper housing. The only semi-permanent solution is to replace the pulley assembly. The part is relatively cheap thru Homelite.com. If you can do it yourself, go for it. A repair shop will most likely charge you $20 to $40 in labor to do this.

You will have to disassemble the unit to that point and inspect the recoil pulley (rope coils on it) and the ratchet mechanism under it and the recoil spring that draws the rope back in.

Hello I need the homeleit 26cs mighty lite manual, the starting coard wont retract


This would be caused by the starter pulley separating and jamming on the flywheel, In most cases it would cost more to fix these machines than it would be to replace them. Unless of course its under warranty then just take it back for a repacement.
