    I guess I should have asked How can I fix it. I don't think the spring is broken as the pull cord will recoil partially. Thanks Joe

    The pull cord on my Toro snowblower is limp--no resistance, so no start.  The technician said the starter something was frozen.  After an hour indoors, the problem disappeared.  But it returned and so the Toro (which means "bull," no?) is in an unwelcome presence in my kitchen.


    Is there a solution?

Reference your toro snow blower. does it start and run for a few swconds then die. if so It may sound crazy but loosen the gas cap just a bit. I had the same issue with my snow blower and a friend gave me the solution. It works great now.

I have a toro snowblower. i cannot pull the pull cord. it feels like it is stuck.


Pull your spark plug out and see if the cord will pull out, if it does than that means your cylinder is full of gas which is a result of ethanol in the gas causing the needle valve to leak causing fuel to siphon from tank to cylinder, pull your carb off and put a carb kit in and you will be blowing snow in no time,if this isnt the problem then enjine may be seized up and its time to replace blower. Good Luck!

I have a Toro 6.5 HPTecumseh .The pull cord is difficult to pull and will actually **** the cord back to the engine.The engine sounds as though it would start,but does not. Joe W


Have you tried lubricating the drive shaft? If you turn the mower on its side and try to manually turn the blade by hand and it's difficult to turn, you just need to lubricate the shaft where it slides into the body of the mower. Several shots of WD-40 or oil should lube it up and then it should turn easily again.

Hope that helps!

Toro 6.5 lawnmower wont start when you pull the cord it comes out about an inch then it locks where you cant pull it no more


Remove the plug then try and see if you can pull the cord any futher.If not you may have to dismantle the pull start and check the clips are not jamming.
