We have an article and video on How to Repair a Small Engine Recoil Starter. I hope this with the problem you are having.
Do you have any other rims that are more durable then the ones that come with the brush wacker?
I wish we had another option for you, but all we can supply is what the manufacture supplies to us.
Question: Replacement For A100539 Belt
Got a good little trimmer by powermate. I'd hate to scrap it for the want of a belt. Is there a suitable replacement out there anywhere? So far no help even from powermate dealers.

Question: Ignition Coil
Where can I get an ignition coil (P/N A100687) for this trimmer? It's discontinued and can't get it any place I've tried. Is there a suitable substitute?

I have the same problem. Did you ever find a ignition coil that is suitable for the trimmer (ut13144)? If so, where did you find one? Any help would be appreciated. :cool:

I am guessing that your engine is a Briggs & Stratton. To get the correct specs we will need to know the model number located on the valve cover. If it is not a Briggs, let us know the manufacture and we will get the information you need.
Question: Ut13144,guide Height
My dish broke off the shaft, do I just need the dish(height guide) to repair it? I am on my original line, what made this break? Is it hard to repair, can I do it myself? Is it under warranty by any chance?

I just happened to replace mine this weekend. It's pretty easy. Note the hex-shaped stamping in the center of the guide. I had to scrape a bunch of dirt and crud off the old one to even see it, much less get a wrench on it. Use that to loosen the old and screw on the new. I removed the entire cutting assembly (four bolts on the top of the housing) for a better way to steady the moving assembly, but I'm not sure that was necessary if you use a vice gripe to lock the assembly as you unscrew the guide with a socket wrench. If you do remove it, make sure the belt is properly in the pulley when you bolt it back on.
I don't know why yours wore out so quickly, as mine took three or four seasons for ground friction to cut a circle in the middle, leaving a 1.5 center on the trimmer and the bowl on the ground.
