How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

The most common reason for the cord refusing to rewind is a broken or worn out recoil spring. This tiny spring hooks onto the pulley and is stretched out when you pull the cord; when you let go the spring is meant to snap back to its original position.
When your trimmer starts and runs on choke, it could be because the check valve in the gas cap is clogged. Start the trimmer and gently unscrew the gas cap halfway off. Turn the choke off and assess. If the engine is still running, that means the gas cap may be the culprit.
Recoil start

When the rope`s grip is pulled, the rope uncoils, tensions the spring, engages the clutch and turns the crankshaft, spinning it to crank or start the engine before the end of the pull stroke. The running of the engine then disengages the clutch.

Definition of A Recoil Spring. A spring that is placed at the rear of the bolt of a automatic or semi automatic gun, that is utilized to take in or contain the recoil.
The impact load of the steel cylinder on the recoil spring is provided by the power spring. The steel cylinder compresses the power spring to store energy. After release, the potential energy of the spring is converted to the kinetic energy of the steel cylinder.
A captive recoil spring assembly includes a guide rod surrounded by a coil spring. The spring is captured between a base at one end of the guide rod, and a body at its opposite end. The body is shaped to engage the spring at one or more sectors, leaving one or more remaining sectors free to engage the slide.
Blade obstruction occurs when something is blocking or stopping the blade from moving and makes your pull cord hard to pull. This issue commonly occurs when there is small debris lodged between the blade and the mower deck or when you are starting your lawn mower in the yard.
The most common causes of trimmer string going back in are either the string not being wound tight enough on the spool, or allowing it to become tangled during winding. Other likely reasons are using the wrong string size for your weed eater or degraded line due to age and storage conditions.
Usually this is the result of the cutting head being taken too close to objects, e.g. garden stones, paving edges, walls etc. The cutting line must be allowed to rotate freely and the correct diameter and type of line should be used.
