Not sure if this will help. Don't want to sound like a **** but....Have you made sure nothing is caught or jammed inside it. This could make it hard to start with the cord..

SOURCE: WeedEater Edger PE550 Starter Rope will not recoil

Order a new recoil spring from your suppier. It comes wound up. Remove the old part first usually four screws on the outside. Make sure the rope is fully wound then insert the new spring and reassamble. If it becomes unwound by mistake its a labourious job to rewind but can be done.

How do u remove recoil spring assembly that is held in place by a roll pin on a 4hp Briggs and stratten


I suspect you asked this question because your recoil starter rope has broken , so first let me say be extreemly carefull the coiled spring on top of rope pully has a lot of tension to it , it can and will hurt you if it gets out of the pocket it sets in, what ive allways done is to NOT remove the pully at all but hold it with a large C clamp i put this on right after i get about 6 good turns to tighen the spring then i apply clamp , use a razor knife to cut ball off end of old rope and pull out using pliers thread new rope from outside rope guide to into the rope pully and knot if off in original hole (use a lighter to part melt rope end) measure off about 5 feet of rope and tie starter handle on there then its simple just slowly let clamp pressure off the pulley will pull rope in to cover automaticly done !!!

How do i replace pull cord on mtd 31cc tiller


Remove your recoil housing. Turn the inside to see if spring is broken. If spring is good wind it up as tight as it will go without forcing it. Once you have it wound all the way then back it off one turn or until the eyelet meets where the rope comes out. tie a knot in one end and feed through both holes. Pull the rope through till the knot is tight then attatch your handle. Once the handle is in place slowly let the rope wind itself in. pull a few times to make sure your knot is holding and reinstall on engine

How do I reset the starter cord to rewind. It does not recoil when I pull it to start. I have to take the cover off and do it manually.


Hopefully you don't have a broken recoil spring. If the spring is not broken, then it's just a matter of rewinding the starter rope with the spring tension wound. I'll give you links to my two favorite videos on how to do this, as each machine is similar, yet slightly different. After viewing both videos, you should be able to do this on your machine:

Video2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3ZMVFi0yqY
I hope this helps. Best of luck to you.

I replaced the pull cord on an mtd mower. and now it won't rewind the cord?


You have to tension the spring before installing the cord. Remove the cord. Put the recoil assembly in a vise. Prepare the ends of the cord so they can be threaded into place. Spin the pulley in the proper direction until it is tight. Align the hole in the housing with the hole in the pulley. Thread the rope in and knot it and pull tight. Slowly let the spring tension retract the rope. Cut the rope to length, install handle, knot and test.

I have a Yard Machine Lawn mower by MTD it has a briggs and stratton engine. The pull cord pulls, to easily I might add, but will not start the lawn mower. It doesn't seem to engage the motor. What might...


If you think the rope pulls too easily the engine may not have enough compression. Consider doing a compression test or a leak-down test on the cylinder.

Pull string won;t recoil


The recoil spring has broken. These are available at any lawn mower parts supply store. The process of changing the spring is tedious but can be done by anyone with average mechanical ability. If you removed the recoil assy (and air shroud if it is riveted on) and took the assembly to a Lawn Mower Repair shop usually they will change out the spring while you wait. If you can't get the recoil assy off take the mower with you to the repair shop. Again most shops will fix it while you if wait but if they are very busy usually they are serviced within 24 hours.

If you do attempt this yourself check in the tips section of FixYa on how to change the recoil stater rope after replacement of the spring.

I highly recommend you replace the pull rope at the time of the recoil spring replacement.

One final note... there is a possibility that the pull rope spool has been damaged where the spring attaches.

Thanks for using FixYa,

Kelly
