How do I replace recoil spring on generator


Depending the manufacture of the engine the actual replacement varies. You basically need to first remove recoil starter cover assembly. In the center in most recoil rope pulleys will be screw(bolt) that need to be removed. Pay close attention the assembly order or the parts; take picture if necessary. Once you things a part and old spring is removed. Be careful even broken springs can go flying and cause injuries. Carefully put the new spring in the correct direction. Re-assemble the rope pulley unit. To put tension on the spring you wind the pulley in the same direction as it would if you was pulling the rope out. Wind until it stops then unwind up to one turn depending where the rope enters the pulley and install the starter rope. After the starter rope is installed slow let the pulley take up rope slack. Then you re-install the starter cover assembly on the engine.

Note on some engine other components needs removing just to the starter cover off. I know of some Briggs engine that this is true as the carburetors has to come off first.

How to troubleshoot a locked rotor on a generator?


If it is electric start, remove the starter to be sure it is not locked. If it is pull-start, remove the pull rope assembly to see if that is the problem (not likely, but easier than the next steps). If it is still locked, you will need to remove one generator end cover and look inside for an obstruction. If you do not see an obstruction, take the other end off and look in that end.

Want to remove the starter recoil from my powermate generator


I got one of these pieces of junk, and had same problem you described.

You will need to remove the end panel to get to the blower housing. You will have to thread the rope through the handle until you have enough slack to remove the rope from the handle. The end panel should now be free to remove entirely.

Find the 3 bolts that hold the blower housing on, and remove them. Once you get it off, make sure that the rope has a knot in it so it won't get retracted into the pulley recoil assembly. Take a screwdriver and push the rope back down into the pulley (that was my problem). Assembly is opposite of taking apart.

The rope on my generator gets stuck as i pull to turn it on


Assuming the rope stays on the internal pulley, it is NORMAL for the rope to require great force at points in the cranking cycle (once per revolution of the crankshaft). These are the compression strokes and the force is MANY times the initial pulling force. If the rope returns easily, then the starter assembly is probably normal. It takes a strong arm and fast movement to start the enginess via pull rope. Some units have a compression release to ease this a bit.

This usually happens at the most inopportune time. You go out mow the lawn, pull the rope and it comes out in your hand. Here's how to fix it yourself.
First, we'll talk about a simple rope replacement. In most cases you will have to remove the blower housing from the engine to get to the underside of the rewind starter where the rope is. We'll assume at this point that the spring is ok and you can just wind it back up again. You can check the spring by turning on the hub in a counter-clockwise direction and see if the spring gains tension. Do not try to remove the spring from its holder or you may end up having to take the mower in for service.
1. Remove the rope from around the hub. Since there is no tension, it should come right out. If you are lucky and it broke near one end, you can probably just re-use it. If it is badly frayed or too short, you will need to find a replacement at a local hardware store.
2. Attach the handle or tie a knot in one end of the rope so it will not wind all the way into the hub. You also may want to burn the rope ends to keep them from fraying and causing a problem in the future. Set the rope aside where you can grab it once you wind up the spring.
3. Wind the hub in a counter-clockwise direction using your thumb to keep it from unwinding, until the spring is tight. Then let it come back slightly so the rope hole in the starter housing lines up with the rope hole in the hub.
4. Stick the rope through both holes while holding the hub from unwinding. This is tricky because you don't want the hub to unwind on you before you have the rope secured in it. A pair of needle nose pliers or a small screwdriver or pick may help get the rope through.
5. Tie a half hitch knot in the rope after you have it through both holes. While holding the rope, release your hold on the hub and let the rope slowly pull itself back into the starter.
6. Put the blower housing back on and your ready to start the engine & mow.
