The recoil doesnt recoil back up anymore

This question is from 5,500-Watt/6,800-Watt Recoil Start Gasoline Powered Portable Generator

One pull is all I get. The cord will not recoil. If (rarely) it doesnt start in one pull, I have to take off the casing, coil it back up, put the casing back on and try again. Kind of bothersome during inclement weather/power outage, especially in the dark.

Can I fix or replace the recoil thingy so it will work again?

other than this, I absolutely LOVE this generator. usually one pull is all I need, and she blazes on for me. But, I would be better if the recoil worked.

I have the 6800 - 41135

What is the THD on this unit?

I am looking for the best buy for my money. Searching for a generator for my RV that will not only handle the load, but one that is cleaner power than standard. I see that this unit has Auto Voltage regulator, but I'm curious of the THD rating. Why does Champion not advertise this number...is it because it's not a good number? I want to protect my appliances and devices to the best my dollar will buy. Since I don't have a lot of those $$'s...it's very important to me to get the best value.

Your answer is not satisfactory...and I warn anyone reading this to do some research. It is known in the Electronics world that if you have over 5-6% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) that you can damage any electronics with a mircro-processor. Yes, you can probably get away with it...but do yourself a favor and do some research before buying. There are other relatively in-expensive generators who claim that they produce less than 5-6%. I'm sorry Mr. Champion, but that's the truth...and I feel more confident now that I won't buy your products. If you had something producing the lower range numbers, I'd consider it...until you tried to tell me that it was okay to use a 20% distortion rated gen on any general home electronics. Are you going to buy me a new laptop when it burns up because of dirty power? Didn't think so! Read Less

Answer: 
This generator produces a sine wave, not a modified or square wave.
The Total Harmonic Distortion or THD on this sine wave is 20% or less, which is the industry standard on a synchronous style generator. This is perfectly acceptable for running common commodities found in your home such as TVs, your appliances, etc.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by this thing is awesome This machine will power any thing I've got,very easy to operate and after a year in use still starts on first pull every time would definitely buy again August 3, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A good generator. Bought this unit last fall before hunting season and used it all season with no problems, uses a little more oil than I expected. August 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice gen. Haven't fully tested it yet, but it seems to start and run fine. Happy so far. March 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by What a surprise! I got it during Nemo, was the only one I could find, we lost power on Friday night and it ran till the power was restored on Sunday night, it powered my boiler, all my lights, 2 tvs, my freezer and a microwave, I used about 13 Gallons of Gasoline, and the only time I turned off, was on Saturday morning for the first oil change. I was greatly surprised on how reliable this Generator is, the price is great for the size (6800 starting watts), I would buy it again and its worth going for the bigger one. The reason I am not giving it 5 stars, its because this unit doesn't have a hour meter and its a bit on the louder side. February 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pleasantly surprised! I would have paid for a "better" named generator, but Champion is all they had in the store post Sandy. I was pleasantly surprised how well this unit has been working. It saved me from the cold nights. I have it wired to my circuit board. It powers my LCD tv, lights, computer, garage door opener, refrigerator and most importantly my oil fired furnace without a hitch. This unit has exceeded my expectations. Oh...I forgot, it ran overnight and it only used a half tank of gas!!! November 3, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Product delivers as promised We installed the transfer switch next to our main panel indoors and then tested the system with our Champion generator. The generator started on the first pull. We increased the load on the generator by turning on the auxiliary circuits. We loaded the generator with 4,000 watts total and it ran perfectly. It does run loud, but that has been reported before. I'm sure it will perform as stated should the need arise. February 27, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far, so good. - Sandy victim Bought one for myself and one for the in-laws. Real simple to use if you have common sense. Started right up after 2 pulls. Was able to power the frige, stove, a lamp and a LED tv. I unplug the stove and the tv when I wanted to use the washing machine/dryer. So far, so good. I'll repost if there's anything negative. November 2, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product for the price Finally found this at a Fairfield, CT store and was able to put it together and get it running within 10 minutes. Very easy quick-guide which made the setup easy. Saved me after Sandy. November 2, 2012
