The starter assembly is between the motor and boom so you have to remove the boom from the motor housing. Usually one nut & bolt at the nose of the starter housing. There may be another lock bolt. You shouldn't have to remove the throttle cable and leads but it depends on how tight the factory installed them. Remove the starter housing. If you're real lucky all you have to do is pull some starter rope up past the pulley and wind the pulley in the direction the rope pulls back into the housing. You have to pull the rope around the pulley as you wind it. If the spring catches and builds tension you're good, wind it four or five times or enough to fully pull the rope back in. If the spring doesn't catch or releases every two or three turns it has to be replaced. You may have to replace the spring and container (PN638033001) and/or the easy start assembly (PN310022001).

Starting Pull Cord


You didn't list the model but those little rewinds are typically built very similarly.
It may sound a little crazy but it works, take the unit to a power washer such as a car wash and blow out the gook in the rewind with lots of hot soapy water and then rinse. Then using a probe or small screwdriver get the rewind unstuck. If it retracts you’re good to go if not let me know as you may have a broken piece in there and I'll need the model to know what to do next.

This is a parts site for you with a schematic so you can see what is going on. I think your return spring is either broken or out of it's keeper. Check it out. hope this helps.

I bought a Ryobi RY34420 yesterday from home depot


Sounds as tho it needs a minor carburetor adjustment. It's not getting enough fuel when you pull the throttle. Don't know if the owners manual addresses this issue or not, may want to check.
