Stuck cables happen. We recommend placing a few drops of pump cup oil into the fuel line and then giving the cable a good tug with a pair of pliers. Pro tip: Make sure your fuel line is as straight as possible. You can also take the jet and shaker needle out and place lube/pump cup oil/WD-40 in both the generator tube and fuel tube ends. Make sure to hold the fuel line at the metal block where the catch arm is attached, so as not to pull the fuel line apart if you apply too much force to the cable. Do not hold the fuel line assembly at the generator tube or at the jet.
