Weed eater made a noise then just quit working, pull cord wont engage

I was weed eating and my Ryobi gas weed eater made a pop noise and immediately stopped working. When I tried to start it the pull cord would pull and recoil but did not engage anything. would it cost more to fix it than it's worth?

SOURCE: Poulan Weed Eater Trim Line Constantly Jams

Sounds as if the line is wound on the spool the wrong way, causing it to want to always feed string.

SOURCE: weed eater won't start already Tried new plug

Did you check to see if the plug fires? If it shows a spark, check the air filter. Did you prime the carb? Does the fuel mixture mive smoothly through the plunger? If all that is okay, go through the carb. You might take a SMALL amount of fuel mix and put it into the spark plug hole, try to fire it. If it fires, probably your problem is the carb or fuel delivery to the carb....Good luck...Lee

SOURCE: weed eater starts, runs 5 min. then cuts off

The gas cap may be clogged.

The next time you run the trimmer and it starts to die, loosen the gas cap. If it starts running again, then you know that it's a clogged gas cap.

You may also check the air breather, it may be dirty as well.

Just let me know if you need further assistance.

SOURCE: Weed Eater PE550 - How do you change the spring

Lay the unit on it's side, carborater down. Removed the 3 screws holding hold the gear assembly housing. Hold the clutch assembly inside a cloth with a wrench and remove the nut. Left from the starter cup as a stack and set aside. There is a starter retaining ring on the shaft. Pull this with a long nose plyers. If it spings free, it is easy to loose. Then left out the starter pully. The starter spring is under the pully. Remove it with a sharp pointed tool. A broken one is crusted in rust and will be snapped off inside the coil.

Sounds like the starter dogs are broken. They are little plastic teeth that engage to turn the engine when you pull the cord. You'll need to replace the whole starter assembly to fix this.
