Spring probably broke for recoil,will have to pull the 4 screws holding it on and and pull recoil off
you might get lucky as you loosen the bolts it might retract, if it does it is dirty inside and possible nylon guides wore causing it to bind. otherwise spring prob broke inside

I have a stihl fs 80, the starter cord will not retract after the first pull. The spring is still intacted but doesn't spring back when re-attached to weed eater.


One of 2 things come 2 mind, if the spring is still in tact it could be that the retract line might be slightly to long and forces the spring to over travel and lock up against itself. A simple test would be to pull the pull start to only 80%. If at 80% it retracts normally then shorten the pull string by a few centimeters . alternatively the spring may be over tensioned by a turn or two. to release pull the string out with the pull starter off the machine to about halfway, hold down the recoil to release the tension off the string and pull the string out towards you through the slot provided on the face of the recoil into a loop. Gently let the recoil slip one full turn at a time until there is just enough tension to pull the handle all the way back. if its too loose just revers the process one turn at a time. its not complicated, to do but can be tricky,
if DIY is not your thing, refer to someone better qualified,

Echo trimmer srm-230 pull string to start trimmer is stuck. I try pulling on it and it only comes out about an inch.


The pull string is probably tangled up. There are usually vents which enable you to see into the machines pull string assembly. Loosen the fasteners and pull off the cover exposing the pull string. You can unwind and untangle and then it should recoil perfectly. If that does not work continue to dismantle the pull string assembly because you probably have a broken starter pawl which is located on the back of the pull string assembly.

Pull cord will not retract


Have to take all 3 plastic covers (housings) off to get to the spring and tie the new pull rope or change the spring. Just did mine, spring just unlatched and string wouldn't retract. Did not have to by any new parts....works great! Took me 1 hour to get it done.

Don't know how to install new string on Echo SRM 2400


Cut two separate pieces of string, about 7 ft. each.

Stick the end of the line in the hole on the inside of spool.

Wind clockwise onto spool, putting the line that is closest to the ground on first.

Once you have winded this piece on, lock the last 4 inches of line through the slits on spool.

Repeat process for second piece of line, locking the last 4 inches in slot opposite the other locked in piece.

Put the spool on the trimmer, feeding the end of lines through either hole on trimmer.

Before you push the spool all the way on, pull the strings out of the locked position.
