Try removing the spark plug and rotating the engine by hand.
It could be just a little corroded from shipment over the ocean.
But once you have it loosened up and the oil circulated, it should start much easier.
Make sure it has oil in it, because sometimes they drain the oil before shipping.
You could also have someone else try the starter rope. A new engine can be hard to start.

    thanks so much. i was able to find an advice akin to the spark plug being removed from the engine and pulling the cord but yours is a more detailed step. i hope this will work and thank you again. will let you know if it worked. best regards..

Coleman powermate vangaurd 9hp. how long is the pull start rope?


no set length on any recoil repair
old one will be stretched or broken

melt cord end for ease of fitting and no fraying through holes
and finishing knots

feed one end into recoil internal through outer and inner casing
then knot
set recoil spring into correct position and tension

cord is at least three times around recoil
leave excess cord out for pull handle and later adjustment

then cut .. melt end .. feed thought pull handle

then adjust as you test recoil off the motor

then fit to motor.. pull a few times

and final adjustment of cord length at the pull handle

I already broke one recoil starter assembly on my Astra Korea 3 kVA generator. I can start the generator, but with great effort. It takes about 6-8 pulls, and there's so much resistance that I can actually...


The easiest test to run on the generator is to remove the spark plug and see if it pulls easier. If it does then it is a compression problem. I doubt that is the case. If it does not then you need to take the generator off the motor and see if it still pulls hard.

Stihl chainsaw MS460 Can't pull recoil


It could be the recoil is stuck. a couple of things to check. Take the clutch and chain cover off, remove the spark plug and manually try to turn the motor over by turning the clutch. If the motor/engine is not seized, take the pull start/recoil cover off and pull on the cord to see if it will work and that the cord returns back into the recoil automatically. Don't take the nut off the inside of recoil holding the cord spool on. If the engine is not seized, and the recoil now goes in and out by pulling the start cord handle reassemble and pull over the engine a few times. This a good time to check the spark plug is working, now put the spark plug back in and start the engine. It's a good time to clean the air filter as well while the chainsaw is mostly apart and clean all oily sawdust off the chainsaw in the crevices etc..

Have champion 3500 watt generator recoil pull cord wont recoil HELP


need to take the recoil off the engine and check for a broken recoil spring, depending on the engine if it is a honda, they sell a replacement recoil unit, anything else and you will have to get creative....try tapping on the recoil with your palm and see if it trys to rewind, if no resistance or movement when bumping is a good indicator of a broken recoil spring....

Want to remove the starter recoil from my powermate generator


I got one of these pieces of junk, and had same problem you described.

You will need to remove the end panel to get to the blower housing. You will have to thread the rope through the handle until you have enough slack to remove the rope from the handle. The end panel should now be free to remove entirely.

Find the 3 bolts that hold the blower housing on, and remove them. Once you get it off, make sure that the rope has a knot in it so it won't get retracted into the pulley recoil assembly. Take a screwdriver and push the rope back down into the pulley (that was my problem). Assembly is opposite of taking apart.

I have a craftsman leaf blower model 335879770. The pull start doesn't engage. You can pull the cord and it recoils back but doesn't crank the engine. I have it apart but how do I get to the starter pulley...


you shouldn't have to there are little ears on the flywheel that the starter recoil hits when pulling the handle they might be stuck or not moving when pulling handle

Pull start recoil assembly


I bought a replacement recoil starter for my 1850 at Pats small engine parts. The part number for a 3.5 B & S is 499706. If you look on the heat shield on the side of the motor there is the engine model and s/n. Hope this helps.

Have a brand new 6250 generator I have never used.


If you've got a receipt that shows it's less than 2 years old you might be able to get your local Briggs dealer to take the blower housing off and see what is wrong with the recoil starter, have a look at this link http://www.briggsnetwork.com/maint_repair/BS_engine-warranty.pdf
Otherwise you'll have to do some troubleshooting yourself. The carb comes off first (you'll need an E5 torx socket to get the studs off), then the blower housing along with the recoil starter.

Did that help? Rate me friend :-)
