The pull cord on my Roybi rtl30ces will not retract. How do I access to repair?

Hi Kathy - more likely than not there's a little "tab" on the end of the spring that slips it to a tab in the plastic to maintain spring tension.

These break off fairly regularly and you can easily bend the spring steel to a 90 degree to "fix it" and place it back in the tab.

I've included a teardown / rebuild video that should be very helpful when repairing your weedeater - it's a "generic" ryobi video but they're all really, really similar.

a lot of carburetors are being made with no adjustment screws available to the public for EPA reasons. if you can't find them then they are probably not there

My 2 cycle ryobi tiller won't start. It has good spark but plug is dry. Fuel lines are good and primmer works. Any suggestions? Thanks

Try starter fluid in the chamber and see if it starts. If so, you may need to clean your carb.
