Pull rope will not retract on a rlt30cet


Pull recoil and remove screw holding the string pulley. There's a spring behind it. Find where it hooks to the housing bend it to latch. This is what broke loose. Now wind it all into the designated spot. Attach string pulley and CAREFULLY put back together. Finally wind up insert rope and let it retract. This is a very difficult and frustrating job.

How to install string on trimmer


This is a messy frustrating job, and if you had to put a price on the hassle that it is, it is probably better to pay somebody else to do it. That said, remove the starter cover with the cord and pulley inside. If there is a plate holding down the cord pulley, remove it and carefully lift out the pulley, try not to dislodge the recoil spring as this is where the frustration part comes in. Remove the old cord and insert the new cord end into the hole and copy the old knot - pass the other end of the cord through the eyelet in the cover. N.B. At this time take note of the direction that the recoil spring coil is orientated. Wind about 3/4 of the cord around the pulley and attach the start handle to the outside end of the cord. Carefully fit the pulley over the spring and place the cord into the cutout in the pulley. Wind up the pulley so that it engages in the curl in the inside of the recoil spring and further wind up the pulley in the opposite direction of the normal pulley start pull, holding the cord in the little cut-out so that the cord does not wind up as you wind the spring. It probably takes about 5 extra turns on the pulley to get the recoil tension right. Always hold the pulley in place to prevent the spring from jumping out. Release the cord so it can retract and replace the retaining plate. This is all if the spring does not jump out - which it so often does.
If the spring jumps out, hold it by the inside portion and start winding it up, pulling it tight to keep the coil small enough to fit back into its receptacle, . Once the spring is wound up and will fit into its position the problem starts. I found that gripping the spring with an alligator jaw vice grip will allow you to replace the spring and carefully release it without it going wild again, engaging the outer hook in its retaining slot or around its peg. Trying to feed the spring into position coil by coil seldom works, it has to be wound up outside and then inserted, especially on a small motor.
This procedure is as difficult to explain as it is to carry out. I have done many cord replacements and always dread the next one. If you have any problems, feel free to come back to me.

How to I change the spring for the start-cord on a Craftsman Sim-pul weed wacker? p/n 530-059225


A bit of disassembly will be required for you to reach the point where you can access the starter/recoil unit. If you already have done so, it will be evident that you have to take the unit out, remove the old spring, install the new spring (paying special attention to the orientation of it in the pulley hub) and reinstall. Torx fasteners hold most all of the parts on this machine. If you take your time and don't rush it, it is not too bad. Check this site with your Make and model # for parts diagrams and breakdowns.

I have a craftsman line trimmer, I believe it is model #79107, pull string to start and string will not go back in ???


This can be a challenge to repair. The Torx screws holding the casing and machine to it will have to be removed to access the starter/recoil unit. If you have opened one up before, it's not that bad...if not...it's a real learning process, Take your time, you will need Torx head screw removal tools and a little patience. Once you reach the starter unit, you will realize the problem. Go to that point and maybe post again later?

The pull string wont go back in on the weedeater


Likely the recoil spring has broken (often the end) or the plastic recoil winding in which the spring sets in has broken or worn to the point in which the spring will no longer seat properly. Complete removal is necessary to determine the problem.

Cord doesn't retract, so I took it apart ...


Pardon the long winded answer. I have had a similar same issue on this trimmer TWICE in the first 3 months. What I found on my trimmer is that there is a spring buffer/assist built into the starter assy between the rope pulley and the plastic part that engages the cogs on the motor. The plastic part that engages the motor has a hole in it to retain one end of the spring and the other end of the spring fits in a slot in the rope pulley. The plastic part with the hole appears to be poorly designed and allows the spring assist spring to fall out of the hole and jam the entire assembly preventing the rope from returning. Pulling it apart allows the recoil spring to escape from under it's cover and prevents it from engaging. Yes, removing the spring can be a little exciting -- take your time and cover the housing opening with a towel before removng the spring to keep it from flying across the room. I rewound the spring by driving a nail into my workbench and using it to retain the center hole and wound the spring until it would fit inside the metal spring cover. There's a bump in the outer winding that fits in a hole in the spring cover and then it slides over a peg in the plastic housing. The cover will retain the spring as you put it back into the housing as long as you take your time. The circled inner end of the spring should show in the center hole and it engages the other part of the recoil assembly that engages the cogs on the motor. Check to see if the assist spring is engaged on both ends before tightening the 3 retainers. All-in-all a pretty poor design that has me looking for another trimmer and this one's going in the trash.

Craftsman 17" 25cc Trimmer...pull cord stuck


it's doubtful that bad gas caused this, it sounds like the cord was back-lashed and partially came off the recoil pulley. Remove the recoil cover and ensure the cord is all on the pulley, make sure the rewind mechanism works smoothly before re-installing.
