Pull cord won't engage


remove the sparkplug and try to turn the flywheel if it turns freely then the engine is most likely ok. if it does not turn you have a locked engine that means its toast. If it does turn then you have to look closely at th pull recoil that it is engaging the flywheel.

Broken pull cord


How to replace a broken pull cord on a leaf blower.
1) Remove Hex bolts holding plastic leaf blower housing in place with your hex wrench. you may want to cut the cord with scissors and loosen the bolt or screw securing the rope assemble with hex wrench or screwdriver.
2) Remove spring assembly Carefully. (DO NOT REMOVE THE SPRING ONLY REMOVE THE ASSEMBLY)
3) Remove old cord. Notice the direction the pull cord is wound. This is important in the following step
4) Wind new pull cord in the same direction you removed it, as in step 3, Make sure cord secures in the slot provided on pull and assembly.
5) Replace the pull cord pulley and place over spring.(This is the white plastic spool.)
6) Rotate the pull cord assembly 2 or 3 times in the same direction the cord pulls. (wearing safety goggles and work gloves) Reinsert the center screw by securing in in place with your screwdriver.
7) Insert the leaf blower cord into the end of the handle opening. Secure the handle by tying a knot at the bottom of the new cord.
8) Place the pull cord assembly back onto your blower in its designated area then secure by refastening the 4 hex nuts.
9) Replace the housing cover of blower and refasten the hex nuts.(the housing you removed in step 1.)
I hope this was some help to you. Good luck.

I have a Echo PB 2601 made a loud bang then stoped working.


Sounds like it has seized up. If the pull cord won't pull then the motor is locked up. Did you run gas/oil mix for the fuel its a 2 cycle motor...

Weed eater is locked up. can not pull cord at all.


Try taking the cover off around the pull if you can. Likely the cord is not free to spin, or there is a rub on the fly wheel stopping it from moving.

Computer is locked in power saving mode and i can not get it out.


I've seen this on laptops, but never on a desktop. Have you totally pulled the power cord and waited around 15 minutes before replacing?

My string will not pull its like its stuck need help thanks


it might have vapor lock, try removing the spark plug and spray a little penetrating oil into the cylinder, let it sit for a couple minutes and try pulling the cord again with the spark plug still off.
