Question about Electrical Supplies
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?

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

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!
