You will need to separate the motor from the shaft. Once this is done the flex shaft can be removed from the tube.

The pull cord on my Roybi rtl30ces will not retract. How do I access to repair?

Hi Kathy - more likely than not there's a little "tab" on the end of the spring that slips it to a tab in the plastic to maintain spring tension.

These break off fairly regularly and you can easily bend the spring steel to a 90 degree to "fix it" and place it back in the tab.

I've included a teardown / rebuild video that should be very helpful when repairing your weedeater - it's a "generic" ryobi video but they're all really, really similar.

Unsieze a weedeater motor after using regular gas

Even if you are able to "unseize" it, it may not run afterwards. The reason you NEED to add oil to the gasoline is because that is the only lubrication the engine gets! You can try to unseize it by removing all of the remaining gasoline from it and putting in ONLY some 2 cycle engine oil. Then you will need to attempt to turn the engine shaft back and forth using the weedeater feed spool as a lever handle. IF, and I say if it breaks loose you may not have sustained alot of damage. If it doesn't...

I have an weedeater 22"

check the fuel
if old -- TOSS it OUT!
Fuel quality sucks and has ethanol,. which eats rubber hoses and leaves residues through the carburetor and more,. try wiggling the needle valve without turning it - if otherwise do not loose placement of where the needle valve is setting currently if you do turn or remove the needle valve for inspection..
Also try some starting fluid to blast it a bit,. be careful if it is 2 cycle as you need oil to run the engine too!
Best regards

I need to remove the clutch assembly from the shaft. Is there a special tool or technique I need to know about?

You will need to remove the bolt from the centre of the centrafugal clutch and remove it from the shaft with a flywheel puller. Good luck!
