I have done many cord replacements and always dread the next one. Anybody have the overhaul procedure for this bad boy? I don't know the user name of Roger who sent me the manual but I really do appreciate it! If it cannot, any job that involves a recoil starter is a messy frustrating job, and if you had to put a price on the hassle that it is, it is probably better to pay somebody else to do it. . The model numbers are typically located on the oven frame somewhere around the oven cavity opening or it could be on the oven frame behind the broiler or storage drawer. At this time take note of the direction that the recoil spring coil is orientated. If the spring jumps out, hold it by the inside portion and start winding it up, pulling it tight to keep the coil small enough to fit back into its receptacle,.
Our system is not letting us attach images to answers just now. If you need to renew the cord, insert the new cord end into the hole and copy the old knot - pass the other end of the cord through the eyelet in the cover. See if the starter will operate when it is removed from the motor. I am sending the image by regular email. I can give you more detailed help if you could provide me with the complete model number. In order to provide any model specific information, I will need to know the model number of your range or wall oven. Carefully fit the pulley over the spring and place the cord into the cutout in the pulley.
Based on your symptom, if this is a gas range, the failure could be the glow bar bake igniter. Wind up the pulley so that it engages in the curl in the inside of the recoil spring and further wind up the pulley in the opposite direction of the normal pulley start pull, holding the cord in the little cut-out so that the cord does not wind up as you wind the spring. Mix a new batch usually you cannot let that sit around for more than 30 days, I always try to use fresh mixes, usually that means making smaller batches unless you use your trimmer quite a bit, most people do not though and that's when problems arise. This is all if the spring does not jump out - which it so often does. My first 2 stroke adventure here! If it's an electric range, it could have a faulty electronic oven control.
Trying to feed the spring into position coil by coil seldom works, it has to be wound up outside and then inserted, especially on a small motor. Release the cord so it can retract and replace the retaining plate. If you have any problems, feel free to come back to me. Once the spring is wound up and will fit into its position the problem starts. I have a Stens kit for it and am looking for what the heck to do with it! It had a pile of info in it but was missing the section on the Walbro carb. If you could supply me with that information I will be happy to assist you further.

This procedure is as difficult to explain as it is to carry out. Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.
If there is a plate holding down the cord pulley, remove it and carefully lift out the pulley, try not to dislodge the recoil spring as this is where the frustration part comes in. Always hold the pulley in place to prevent the spring from jumping out. Anybody have the overhaul procedure for this bad boy? My first 2 stroke adventure here! I am sending you an image showing instructions for replacing the blade in a scroll saw from the owners manual. I found that gripping the spring with an alligator jaw vice grip will allow you to replace the spring and carefully release it without it going wild again, engaging the outer hook in its retaining slot or around its peg. It probably takes about 5 extra turns on the pulley to get the recoil tension right. .
