Question about Electrical Supplies
First and foremost, it is always recommended to get help from professional because trying to start a generator using alternative methods can backfire. Be extra careful if the generator runs on fuel or gas. Most generators nowadays are built in a way that they can be operated using emergency recoil option for the broken pull cord. Try removing the bolts that hold the recoil assembly. Take a piece of robe, tie a knot and place it in the notch on the rim outside. Wind the robe on that silver cup 3-4 times. Most companies provide a manual that states the procedure of fixing the broken cord this way.

Simplest solution is to repair or replace the pull cord. Small generators are designed to be simple. The pull cord assembly and spring are usually a single combined part. They are usually fairly easy to swap yourself.

You have to tighten the spring inside where the cord goes. The pull cord pulls on leverage by using a clock like spring like a lawn mower. You have to take it all the way apart. The cord part. To get to the spring.
It is strange answering this in a computer section. I answer computer questions and this is certainly not a computer question. Unless you have a wind up computer. Now I have heard of these. Where are you located, if this is a wind up computer.

you should remove the housing usually 4 bolts
dont remove anything else then look at the pully and remove the old chord tie a knot in the new chord and slot it into the hole on the pulley
you should then see a notch in the edge of the pulley this is for the chord to sit in while you turn the pully enough times to tension the recoil spring once tensioned enough so that it recoils all the chord slot the chord through the hole in the outer casing through the pull hande and knot it job done then refit
