Please note ! patients is required with this one !
Hi, remove the recoil top cover with the recoil attached. ( DO NOT TAKE OUT THE SPOOL OR YOU COULD HAVE THE SPRING GET YOU IN THE FACE)
Remove old cord.
With your new cord lace it through the recoil spool centre hole with a knott on the end.
now depending if the recoil winds in clockwise when spool is facing you wind the cord around it a few times by turning the spool clockwise,
Then put the cord in the notch at the side of the spool & wind the spool & cord anticlockwise about twice the number of turns of cord (this should tension the spring).
Take your end of the cord & lace it through the hole outside of the casing & fit you pull handle.
But hold the spool firmly untill the cord has a good knott on the end of it.
(Sometimes I see the guys here putting a loop in the cord to stop it sliping in while they tie a knott on the end of the handle.)

Is your primer button stiffing up when used or is it or does it remain sponge ? Or you may have something in the carb .Take the bowl off and clean it. Is your gas fresh or has it been sitting around awhile? Hope this helps you out.

Craftsman walk behind lawnmower will not stop


You can stop any lawn mower by taking a screwdriver and touch the engine and also touch the spark plug the same time. this will short out the spark plug and shut the engine down. Use a screwdriver with a plastic handle and you cannot hurt yourself with a shock.
if you have a little handle on the mower handle that is suppose to shut the engine off and it does not work follow the cable and see if you see where it fastens unto the engine. Sometimes these little parts can get out of adjustment.

Hi, got a Craftsman 20 Hp 42 inch cut , the Deck will not lay flat, it is always on a angle. any ideas ? No matter what the cut height is set at.


Hi tubbed,

Most of these decks are held on at three points. Two are in line 90 degrees from front to back. The other is attached to the height adjust lever.

The first two are adjustable to change the type of angle problems you are having. Make sure you have the engine off when checking. Adjust until the desired angle is reached.

Also, if the model your problem is categorized under does not match your model, the cause of the angle and the solution may be different.

Best regards
Mike

Craftsman self propelled walk behind lawn mower sef propel handle will not engage..the wheels will turn if you hold the handle down but the handle won't lock in........is something broken in the gear box?


Normally grass and debris are clogged under the belt/transmission cover, preventing the full engagement of the transmission cable/lever.

The cover is located on the topside, left front corner of the mower shell. Clean debris, try it again. If OK, re-install cover, If not, there is a cable adjustment (threaded portion with a nut on either side of a fastening arm) move the cable adjustment towards the rear, this will tighten the cable. Sometimes the cable assembly (includes the cable and the control box) needs to be replaced

My craftsman lawn mover (675 series) won't stop once the control bar is released. what's the problem?


IS the Control Bar releasing all the way? Look down by the engine and you will notice a small plastic tab with a wire inserted. When released the lower end of the control bar must touch or move linkage to touch this tab (which is connected to the Magneto Wire) to stop the Mower. I think you are just a little out of adjustment.
