You can wind them back in, hook the anchor end of the spring into the houseing, then start to wind the spring in a coil at a time, keep ypur thumb on the coils already wound in or they will jump out again, if you buy a new spring it eill come in a keeper, all you do is drop it in and push home to release the keeper.

My fl1500le blower starts in full choke but dies as soon as i move it to half choke

Check the following, and then clean or replace:
  • Fuel Filter - Located INSIDE the fuel tank
  • Spark Plug
  • Spark Arrestor - at Muffler
  • Carburetor - May need a rebuild kit
Also watch this...

and this one as well...

I have a featherlight FL20 and after running for a few minutes it cuts out. I believe it might be the fuel filter. How do I clean it?

remove it from the tank with some needle nose pliers,, and check the filter for built up grime, also,, check the plug for fouling,, it may be getting flooded as you run it,, clean the air filter too

How to repair spring starter on FL1500LE

The casing is situated so the spring faces the starting spool. The spool is plastic and the rope is wound around it. The hook goes to the spool. Put it back together carefully! Good luck...Lee

How to get the spring & starter rope back together on a weedeater featherlight leaf blower. model #FL1500LE

easiest is to take a slotted screwdriver, poke into the underside air intake and rotate the wheel a bit...usually the rope goes right back in...if not take the three screws out and release the rope.....while your there give it a few twists to loosen it will do this soon enough when the rope breaks :)

well, either the screws that hold the plastic on (thats hooked up to the rope) are loose, or the spring in the recoil is wedged, missing, or dislodged. Might want to take off the recoil and check for any missing parts, wedged in or dislodged. if none of these is the case, try asking a person at your local hardware store, (home depot, westlake, strausser, harbor-freight, Lowe's)
