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

you must take apart the cord recoil and rewind the pull string,inspect string make sure its the same thickness through out if not replace it, not too hard i believe you can do it.

SOURCE: the pull cord on my poulan pro weedeater will not

You have a broken recoil spring. Dis-assemble (pull-off) the recoil housing and check for proper dog alingnment, broken spring, or something jammed between recoil sprocket and engine block.

Husqvarna Trimmer 128LD starter card will not retract


Check the recoil spring in the starter housing, sometimes the rope rotor can jump out the hook on the spring.

How to put a new pull rope on it How do I put a new pull rope on


It realy depends on what model we are talking about, so i will give a general disciption, remove the four screws retaining the starter to the saw, remove the starter, if the cord is still under tention, pull the starter handle out approx 8", whilst held out hold the pulley to stop it retracting, let go the starter handle and unwind the now lose cord from around the pulley, once enough cord has been unwound let the pulley slowly turn until all the spring tention has gone, remove the center fixing screw, and remove the pulley, pull the old cord away, refit a new suitable diameter cord, knot the end and pull the cord into the pulley so as the knot sits flush into the hole in the pulley, wind the cord fully around the pulley,now refit the pulley to the cover, refit the centre screw ,push the other end of the cord through the cover eyelet and refit the starter handle with a suitable knot, now wind the cord around the pulley a further two times by turning the pulley and winding up the spring, allow the spring to pull the cord in, if required wind the pulley a further turn until the cord is suitably tentioned in the cover, replace the cover on the machine, pull the cord out to make sure it has engaged fully into the pawls before fully tightening the fixing screws.

I have having problem with my Hysqvaran 125L with the pull cord. When i pulls cord, it not catching the trans and it sound like the spring is not catching?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

It sounds like the starter cup has failed / broken. See this link: (Page 3 item 14.)
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/HIPL/HIPL2008/HIPL2008_5450143-15.pdf

However... the pawls on the starter pulley (item 28 above) may have broken.

There is a whole kit for repairing the starter recoil: PN 545180844
That can be found here:
http://cgi.ebay.com/HUSQVARNA-RECOIL-STARTER-KIT-124L-125L-128L-545180844-/150485511147

Your need to remove the starter recoil assy and check for damage. It will be obvious. Just remove the mounting screws and lift it off. It is not difficult. Use the first link page 3 to identify the parts you may need once you do the visual inspection with the recoil removed.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

I have a Husqvarna 323L line trimmer, I replaced the fuel filter and lines. I'm trying to put the pull starter back on and it seems to be lined up correctly but when I pull the cord it makes and noise as...


Is the line you speak of the one that won't retract? I can't imagine you'd replace that line, but maybe so, please clarify.
Thanks Tim

Husqvarna pull cord problem


I had this happen after about 15 uses. I just exchanged the unit. The pull start mechanism can be ordered and is easy to replace. There are parts inside that are nylon and break easily. Any local dealer can order the part for you.

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

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.
