SOURCE: can't start my leaf blower

You might have damaged the "spring re-wind" or the cord is jambed. If you know how to disassemble the housing (see owner's manual), then check to see if the cord is stuck, then manually re-wind it and pull it slowly and then let it rewind slowly. Do not attempt to remove the spring housing unless you have several hours to spare to rewind the spring, as it will "unspring" with great force - all over the place. Zing! The only other solution, of course, is to take it back to Sears for repair. Yuck. Have had several in the shop for other reasons that couldn't be easily DIY repaired - time after time.

Most ****-smen products cause more headaches than they prompt smiles of joy. I have pretty much determined that the manufacturers of ****-smen (who ever they are) plan it that way. Most home-owner products of this sort only last for 3-4 years, if you're lucky. I have also tried other brands; none are much to rave about. You could always do what I do, if I don't have any warrantee time left, or an extended agreement; give it a nice funeral (or run over it with a tank and send the remains to the CEO of Sears) and spend the money for a new one (any brand - even Craps-men) or use a rake..... :(

If you do get it to work, try pulling the cord with less force and NEVER let it "spring back" by letting go of the handle. Let is rewind as you hold it. GOOD LUCK!

SOURCE: Husqvarna leaf blower, replace starter cord Model 132 HBV

remove the starter housing, usually only 3 or 4 bolts or screws. on the inside should be a large white or black wheel, hold the outer case with one hand and rotate the wheel counter-clockwise with the other as many times as can without force. on the inside of the wheel should be a small hole, rotate the wheel to line it up with rope guide hole on the outer case/housing. use a nail or small screwdriver to help hold in place. feed the start rope through the 2 holes and tie a knot at the end, single or double depending on the size of the hole. if the end of the rope is frayed, use lighter to melt and twist to a point to make it easier to handle. when reassembling you may need to jiggle the handle for realignment. it works on an inner spring coil tensioner system, so if the cable has no tension when rotated or doesn't recoil back, the starter assembly will need to be replaced.

There is a round grille on the bottom of the unit. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the latch to release it and reveal the vacuum opening. You should have a two-piece intake pipe that will attach to the opening.

The collection bag attaches to the smaller outlet where the blower pipe used to be (unscrew the wing nut to release the blower pipe). The bag clips onto the hooks at the base of the opening.

SOURCE: I have the option to purchase a craftsman lawn

If it has a Briggs&Stratton engine, find the Model - Type - Code numbers on the engine. Using the Code numbers the first six numbers will tell you the date the engine was made si it would be fairly safe to assume that the tractor is the same year model.

Code number is read like this - 090821 this wouod indicate that it was made in 2009 08 - August -21 - 21st day of the month

SOURCE: The pull cord on my leaf blower will not move

it sounds as if the blowers engine is locked up. pull the recoil cover off and see if you can turn the flywheel. if you cant the engine is locked and no good.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
  • Remove the hex bolts holding the plastic leaf blower housing in place with your hex wrench. You may wish to cut the cord with your scissors and loosen the bolt or screw securing the rope assembly with your hex wrench or screwdriver.
  • 2 Remove the spring assembly carefully. Do not remove the spring, only remove the assembly.
  • 3 Remove the old cord from the leaf blower pull cord assembly by gently pulling it away from the assembly with your hands. Notice the direction the pull cord is wound, as this becomes important in the next step.
  • 4 Wind the new pull cord in the same direction you removed it in Step 3. Make sure the inner end of the pull cord secures in the faster or slot provided on the pull cord assembly. This varies depending on the leaf blower manufacturer.
  • 5 Replace the pull cord pulley and place over the spring. This is the white plastic spool.
  • 6 Rotate the pull cord assembly two or three times in the same direction the cord pulls wearing safety goggles and work gloves. Reinsert the center screw by screwing it in place with your screwdriver; this holds the pulley assembly together
  • 7 Insert the leaf blowers cord end into the end of the handle opening. Secure the handle by tying a knot at the bottom of the new pull cord; this prevents the handle from being pulled off the pull cord while you start the leaf blower.
  • 8 Place the pull cord assembly back onto your leaf blower in its designated area and secure by refastening the four hex nuts with your hex wrench.
  • 9 Replace the housing cover of the leaf blower and refasten the hex nuts with your hex wrench. You removed the housing cover in Step 1.

I can not get my craftsman leaf blower to start. I put a new spark plug and fresh gas. Won't start.


Not to sure without seeing or hearing it being pulled over. Compression? Very likely needs some carb work/kit.

The pull cord on my leaf blower will not re-coil. I have it torn apart but can't figure out what is wrong. Any ideas? Craftsman 32cc 360 cfm gas


How far did you take it apart? It is more than likely just jammed, take a small screw driver and stick it in one of the fins and try to work the pulley back and forth. When you pulled it, it went past the end and pulled the rope back in when it should be pulling it one way now it is pulling it the other way and it is locked. Or the spring is broke. Not likely. Here is a video on it.

How do i untangle the pull cord on my leaf blower, it is jammed inside (210MPH/450CFM Craftsman)


just tack the recoil off they are usually easy to remove do to the nature of the part then you should be able to unwind and untangle. in the future dont let go of the cord until it is wound back up that will elininate the back lash and tangling
