You have to tighten the spring inside where the cord goes. The pull cord pulls on leverage by using a clock like spring like a lawn mower. You have to take it all the way apart. The cord part. To get to the spring.

It is strange answering this in a computer section. I answer computer questions and this is certainly not a computer question. Unless you have a wind up computer. Now I have heard of these. Where are you located, if this is a wind up computer.

Splicing kirby electric cord


If you are unsure on how to splice the cord back together it may be best to just purchase a new cord. You can find a new G6 cord and it is easily installed into the switch at the base of the Kirby.

Have companion 5250 generator which produces about one volt in each of the 120 volt outputs..........check in the back of generator..........looks like a capacitor is missing..........is this it and and...


The cap is a 35uf 370 vac, and the generator will not work without it. While you have it opened up, check out the diode, too. After it's been put back together, if it still doesn't put out, you may need to "flash" it. To do this take a 110 volt plug and cord, and plug it into one of the outlets on the generator. Start the generator engine and then *VERY BRIEFLY* touch the leads of the plugged-in 110 cord to the + and - terminals of a 12v battery. You should now have power available, so be very careful with the ends of the 110 volt cord as they are now "hot".

I have a craftsman push weedeater and the pull cord broke and I want to know how to reinstall so the cord so it will work. I have taken the cover off and fixed the cord and put everything back together but...


you will need to pull the shroud back off, turn shroud upside down, wind it up and with a screwdriver or another pair of hands thread the cord back through, tie a knot and burn it, let go of the it, it will wind the cord back in, pull on it a few times and make sure it is working, then reinstall. Hope this helped Tim

I have a Ryobi RLT30CESN. The started cord broke


Dont remove the center screw out of the spring pully or the spring will fly out. you put in the cord while the spring is assembled inside. Take the housing off but do not remove the pulley unless the spring is broken. The string can be put in using needle nose pliers from the inside of the housing once it has been removed. once installed you wind the cord around the pully and then turn pulley untill you get proper spring tension. Once tension is achieved you fish the cord back threw the eyelet coming out of the housing and tie the handle to the cord. It is a really simple and easy thing to do but hard to put into words.

I have a 11 year old homelite zip start leaf blower that worked well until the starter cord became unattached. can i get access to this unit to retie he cord? thanks bill


This can be done ... but you got to pay attention while you take it apart. Also, when it is apart, you must visualize how it works ... mane sure you wind it the right way ... put a figure "8" know on both ends. You may need a Torx to disassemble it.

I hope this works for you

The pull cord on my 110 honda broke, so we


It sounds like you have it back together correctly except for one issue. You did not put enough pre-load back in to the spring.
Or in other words you didn't rewind the spring enough.

Normally you attach the cord to be rewound and turn or tighten the spring until the length of the cord is completely retracted on to the pulley. This problem usually happens because the unit is reinstalled at this point. What you need to do is turn it another 2 to 4 turns (depending on the pulley size), to place enough tension on the cord to fully retract. You may have to experiment with the number of turns to get it right because both the length of the new cord and pulley size influence this.
If this still doesn't take care of the problem please let me know and I'll try and talk you through it.

Hope this helps.
