Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the starter rope. If it is not retracting all the way, the problem is it is binding or needs to be lubed. To determine which is the problem you have to take the cover off the engine. To do this you need to remove all the screws in the cover. Then remove the muffler and the carburetor depending on the model. Once they are removed, you should be able to take the covers off. Next remove the impeller and the screws in the starter housing. Remove the starter housing and check the operation. If it does not seem to be binding I recommend spraying the recoil spring with oil. Then check the operation. It is also a good idea to lube the dogs on the flywheel.

I am sorry I do not have better instructions but the manufactures do not produce repair manuals for these small products. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired by a Sears technician. Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations: Sears Home Services .

I joined a conversation a little while ago but don't see the problem in question. Here's my problem, I have to two unit halves apart, the blower impeller off and now want o get the starter rope and return spring off. This assembly appears to be gummed up and spring weak. There seams to be another nut on the end of the crankshaft that has to come off before the spring assembly can be removed. So far this nut doesn't want to move. Is this nut right hand thread like the impeller nut? What's a good way to hold the crank while removing the nut? Bob M.

I think its great that you are wanting to do some repairs on your own. I did some research and I was able to find the owners manual for your blower. I am also adding a second link in where you can enter the model number of your blower and a parts list diagram will pop up to guide you with your project.

Thank you for your question on the removal of the covers on the blower.

I am sorry but I cannot find a diagram to give you.

On some models you will need to remove the handle and on the bottom where the inlet door is there is a clip that you will need to remove. On other models there may be a hidden screw by the intake door.

Please let me know if that was of any help.

I only have the parts breakdown to look at.

I had the same problem at first but found some screws way down in some deep holes that finally allowed the halves to come apart once they were removed. I believe the muffler will have to come off too to get at the whole motor. Another problem I'm now having is how to get the nut off the crank so the starter rope and spring can be replaced. I think this nut is right hand thread like the one that holds the impeller on. Also what is a good way to hold the crank while trying to remove this nut. The nut is not shown on the parts breakdown.

Thank you for submitting your question. I know replacing the fuel lines can be tricky and I will be happy to assist you. There is no formal documentation regarding the fuel line set up. However, we were able to put together a diagram of how the fuel lines are routed (image below). I hope the diagram assists you with this process. Please reply back to this thread if you require further assistance.

Thanks to your telling me about the way to open the blower body. I did not see the screw right below the handle because a spider web had covered the hole but after I read your reply to the gas line question I found the final screw and was able to complete the replacement of the gas lines. Tanks
