Re-Coil on my Eager ****** 282

My pull cord wasn't retracting on the weed wacker, so when I took it apart the coil flew apart before I could see what was wrong.
I got the coil all wound up again but don't know how it attaches to the shaft?

SOURCE: Double spool on Weed Wacker

This isn't a solution to the problem. However, I think you should talk to someone at Home Depot or Lowes or wherever you bought the model, and see if the string is in there correctly; if it is, then u'r weed wacker must have some other mechanical problem. Sometimes it is just best to buy a new one. The more expensive models are the best.

SOURCE: DO I NEED SPECIAL TOOL

There are special tools made for this job, however not needed for most jobs (makes easier). Clean the spring and lube slightly with silicone spray or light oil. Catch the end of the spring that would be the outer end onto slot or pin and slowly spiral the coil into place holding down coils as you turn(dont try to coil the spring then drop it in, take your time as you wind and maybe ask a freind to lend a third hand if your fingers get tired, once you start you cant stop). The inner part of the coil has a bent hook that will catch on the inner portion of the pull rewind. Lood at how the rewind catches this hook by turning the rewind in the direction that it turns when you pull the rope. When you pull the rope it winds the spring. If you put the spring in backwards the rewind spring will not catch. Once you got the spring in place, turn the rewind in the direction that it turns when you pull the rope until it stops, then release one turn and insert rope thru guide and into spool to tie knot. Slowly let rewing pull in new rope. Good luck

SOURCE: how to replace a pull cord-starter

Your question is not clear, but it may help to know that you have to pre-load the recoil spring. To do this you give the spool a couple of rotations in the direction that would be pushing the rope out through the hole to the handle. Do that before you thread the end of the rope through the hole to the handle. It helps to start with a rope that is about 2 feet longer than you need. The rope will be trying to retract as you put a not in it to secure the handle. I pair of locking pliers or a sturdy spring clamp is handy to hold the rope while you tie the knot. Good luck!

No spark


To test the spark you will need a spark plug tester. Put one end of the tester on the spark plug and the other in the plug wire. Pull the cord and see if fire is there. If not you will need to replace the coil.

Poulan Pro PP5020AV pull cord won't retract


You need to wind the spring back in a coil at a time, it is not easy if you have never done one, order a new spring, this will come pre wound in a cassette and is an easy fit.

I have a Homelite Mighty Lite 26cs gas weed **** and the starter cord will not retract into the weed ****. How can I get it to retract so it can be pulled to start the weed ****?


This is somewhat common in the the "zip start" machines. The recoil pulley is 2 plastic housings with a round coil spring between them. It is designed to need less effort to pull and start the machine. When pulled on with great effort/frustration, the middle spring bends and damages the upper housing. The only semi-permanent solution is to replace the pulley assembly. The part is relatively cheap thru Homelite.com. If you can do it yourself, go for it. A repair shop will most likely charge you $20 to $40 in labor to do this.

The Pull cord was jamming. I took it apart and


the rope and spring both have thier respective place in the housing for thier mountings they can be rewound by hand and reassembled with success,hint oppisite end of spring has a anchor point on the housing while one end is secured by a cup like screw mounting,to create the retracting force for retrival of the pull start rope its tricky if haven't done it before but you learn by trying Good luck Steve

I have a poulan p3315 14" chainsaw. The the recoil won't work. I took the assembly apart and I can't get the recoil spring back in. I would like to buy a new assembly. Do you know where I can buy one?


Poulan.com Look your saw over carefully and maybe you'll find a model number that matches one of these.

A new spring comes wound tight enough to be dropped into place in the starter housing (Easiest).

I invert and secure the housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection, both hands and no women around work area!). I'm right handed so i tension the spring enough to insert it inside the previous coil while holding what has already been installed with my left about 180° from my right hand. The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely inserted. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. It will require about 2 turns of pretension to retract properly.
If you're lucky you can pull the cord out enough for a pretension then slightly raise and add the withdrawn cord to the spool.

Both methods require about 2 turns of pretension to rewind the cord when pulled.

Replace pull cord on ryobi model cs30 weed wacker


Good fix, mrfixit-jerr! Also, if you remove the rear cover (4 screws) you can stabilize the crankshaft by inserting a screwdriver between the lobe of the shaft and the counterweight.
