    I have heard of a few failures of recoil starters on the HS engine. I found this info in the Honda GHX50 manual and it may apply to the HS engine as it is supposed to be a clone of the Honda.

    The plastic tabs inside wear out or get dirty and stick.

    Once mine started acting up a shot of brake clean would make it work perfect for a few days.
