When the pull string in your own Craftsman tiller is stuck fast, the tool is rendered useless until you can pull the cord loose. Tugging on the pull string may break it or damage the internal parts of the assembly. The pull string is included in a committed assembly situated on the side of the device since you stand behind it. Merely remove it to gain access to the cord, free it, rewind it and reinstall it.
Remove the spark plug wire from the spark plug to avoid accidental ignition of the Craftsman tiller. Rank the spark plug boot in a manner that prevents it from accidentally using the spark plug.
Remove the screws that attach the starter assembly to the right-hand side of the Craftsman tiller. Detach the starter assembly in the unit and lay it on a flat surface using the internal components facing upward.
Pull the starter cord manage gently to free the string from the item upon which it is snagged. If needed, dislodge the trapped string from the interior of the starter assembly using the tip of a screwdriver, leaving the knots that link the string to the assembly and to the handle intact. Analyze the entire length of the string to make certain that it is not frayed or broken.
Wind the string around the starter assembly and fasten it in the notch on the other hand. Together with the string securely in the notch, rewind the interior coil of the starter assembly counterclockwise five or four times to build tension. Hold the interior coil firmly with your thumb once the tension is set.
Pull the starter cord out to its full length and hold onto it while you publish your thumb in the starter coil. Allow the pressure of the interior coil to pull the string gently back to the starter unit assembly. Ensure that you don’t lose your grip on the cord and permit it to whip around tremendously.
Set the starter unit housing back on the machine and screw it into place using the screws that you removed earlier. Reconnect the spark plug cable. Pull the cord to start the machine and guarantee that it pulls openly in the starter unit.
