How do you fix a weedeater pull cord?

My weedeater pull cord is broken.


Answer by  Melissa101010 (4405)

You are better off buying a new one. I think it is too much trouble for you to take the weedeater apart, re wire a new cord, and put it back together. Plus, a new cord may cost just as much as a new weedeater and you will save yourself stress.

If you have similar string at home already, fixing the pull cord is faster than driving to the store.  add a comment

take the bolts off of the case that contains the pull cord. find out where the string attaches to. spring in drum must be tensioned so that the spring retracts which mean you must rotate the drum to put tension on it. tie the same length piece of sting in.

You can remove the cover from the weedeater, take the pull cord out and then rewind so it rewinds with the spring. Sometimes the spring will need to be replaced.
