My weedeater pull rope won't retract back inside when pulled to start, how do I fix this?


Spring is likely sprung out of the recoil. Take the recoil apart, rewind the cord and turn it enough to put some tension on it. Then put the cover back on.

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..

Troybilt 5500 generator pull cord locks up...just had it for one year...cord was very easy to pull @ first...but lately it locks up when I try to start it...any suggestions?


your cord is too long is why its binding up ,,,on the tee hand where you put your hand on to pull,,,,take a screw driver and push up the tied knot out and away from the tee handle,,,,take and make another knot about 8 inches and pull the cord back into the tee handle then try it again. Most have a long rope, cord etc for maximum pull,,sometimes they go overboard on the length and it binds up on the rewind of the recoil system

If you trying to pull the starter to start it doesn't pull out


Hi, sometimes the recoil rope gets a little tangled inside the housing if the cord is allowed to snap back after pulling. You need to undo the screws that hold the recoil on the motor and inspect the rope inside. If you cannot pull the rope freely while it is detached, then the problem lies with the recoil. In this case try to find the tangled cord and undo it. Test that the coil works before reinstalling it. It should work fine. If you pull the recoil while it's detached and it moves freely, then the problem lies with the engine itself. This would indicate a seizure and requires a complete tear-down and rebuild. Good luck.

Pulley cord wont go down unable to start on gas trimmer


Your cord wont recoil?

You should remove the recoil cover and see if you can rewind the rope manually.

It isnt too hard and will let you know immediately if you need to replace the recoil.

Just the recoil unit by loosening the three or four bolts and lift it off the trimmer. Turn it over and look at the recoil spool. There should be a notch in it. This is were you catch a bit of the starter rope and start turning it in the direction of normal rotation. Normal rotation will put tension on the recoil spring.
When you put 4-6 turns into it just let it recoil and see if it pulls all the rope back in. That's it. If the cord didnt recoil something inside the recoil has broken and you need to get the unit serviced or replaced. Most of the time the cost of repairing something like this is prohibitive. Its a better idea to just replace the whole unit.

Good luck and be careful!

The pull cord will not retract back into the saw. When I tried to start the saw, I pulled the cord and now it did not retract back. It is all the way out and will not recoil.


When I have had this happen it means that you need to manually rewind the cord and put some additional tension on the take up pulley. To do this you'll have to open the saw up and untie the handle. Turn the pulley like one turn, put the rope back through the hole and tie the handle back on. All this is done while maintaining tension on the rope.

Recoil not returning rope when pulled


There is a spring inside the pull cord housing that makes the cord come back in, it probably undid itself, remove the housing cover and rope assembly and you will see the spring, you need to retighten it and place everything back. hope this helps
