Recoil Starter Replacement On A String Trimmer

by Jeremy HIPA 30 Nov 2022 0 Comments

This blog is a step-by-step instructions for replacing the recoil starter on a string trimmer. The most common reasons for replacing the recoil spring is if one of the parts inside it is broken or stuck, causing the rope to not rewind and the engine to not start.


Before you replace the recoil starter on your string trimmer, you need to first make sure the engine has cooled.
Step 1: Remove the wire and boot from the spark plug to prevent the engine from accidentally starting.
Step 2: Now remove the screws securing the engine cover to pull the cover off. And you also need to remove the screws securing the recoil starter.
Step 3: Put the old starter off and install the new recoil starter by aligning it on the main housing and put the screws back to secure.
Step 4: Reposition the engine cover, replace the screws to secure it. Then, attach the wire and boot to the spark plug and your string trimmer should be ready for use.
