Most lawnmowers manufactured over the past 15 years have a safety lever that needs to be pulled in to allow the mower to be started. This lever is normally located near the handrail and acts as a failsafe that shuts down the mower if you were to trip or release it . The intent is to protect you from injury if you let go of the handlebar. make sure you've puled in the safety lever before pulling on the cord .. otherwise, it shouldn't budge.. Hope this helps..

There is usually a belt that runs from the blade shaft to a small gear box. Front drive mowers have this belt mounted atop the deck, and rear drive mowers under the deck. The problem is usually a broken or worn out belt if all the linkage is working properly. Sometimes however, the gear box goes bad, or the parts in the wheels fail... (depending on the drive style) Check that belt! Good luck, and don't worry. Lawn mowers are pretty simple to figure out!

The pull start cord will only move about 3-4 inches and then it stops and then cord stops, Troy built- Briggs/Statton 21 inch self-propel lawnmower.


The mower's drive shaft may need to be lubricated. If you turn the mower over and try to move the blade by hand (with the mower off, of course) does it move, or is it hard to move? If it's hard to move or it won't move at all, lubricate the shaft by squirting some WD-40, 3-In-1, or other lubricating oil onto the drive shaft where it meets the chassis of the mower. Squirt enough oil to cover the circumference of the drive shaft, then try to spin the blade again. It should at least spin a little bit now. Squirt some more oil and spin the blade again, until the blade spins easily. Then turn the mower back over and try to pull the start cord -- it should pull normally now.

I changed the blade, and now it won't start!


Did you replace the blade with a heavier blade, or an identical one? If the pull cord won't pull, it's usually either the blade or the blade shaft causing the problem. Try oiling the shaft and making sure nothing is obstructing the blade from turning.

If you have a pair of heavy gloves, try turning the blade by hand and see if it moves. Squirt some oil onto the shaft where it meets the mower and try turning it again.

Starting issues. Can't pull cord.


Make sure your flywheel brake is not engaged or the cover is hindering the mechanism somehow after it is installed
