Is this solved?

Take the plug out and try again. I thatdoesnt work, take the air cover off, approx. 4 or 5 cap screws and see if something is binding. If this doesnt work try to turn the mag wheelk if that doent work, you probably have avery loose rod cap or broken rod.

Echo trimmer srm-230 pull string to start trimmer is stuck. I try pulling on it and it only comes out about an inch.


The pull string is probably tangled up. There are usually vents which enable you to see into the machines pull string assembly. Loosen the fasteners and pull off the cover exposing the pull string. You can unwind and untangle and then it should recoil perfectly. If that does not work continue to dismantle the pull string assembly because you probably have a broken starter pawl which is located on the back of the pull string assembly.

MTD Yard Machine CD000147 6HP 21 inch ..The problem is "Cannot pull the starter string for start. The string or engine stuck to pull the starter. We didn't use it for the whole winter.


The operator presence bail must be in the run position to release the flywheel brake. If you can't pull the rope with the bail in the run position, your rope is fouled. You will have to remove the shroud and take it to a repair shop.

Pull start won't pull, seems stuck.


When you pull the cord it will turn the blade. Therfore if the blade is stuck or clogged with clippings the starter cord will seem stuck. In addition, the throttle on the handgrip need to be fully depressed for the starter cord to work. Last, some mowers have a saftey which lock the starter if the wheels are engaged. Hope this helps.
