SOURCE: I have a Cub Cadet cc4125 string trimmer not starting

need a little more information .. but look for the following .. take out the spark plug and look inside with a flashlight ... if the piston is moving with the rotation of the flywheel then you likely have a blown head gasket .. if there is no compression there wont be a load on the pull cord .. a cracked or damaged piston can also do this .. ... if the piston is not moving when you rotate the flywheel then you likely have a bad "shear key" sometimes called a "shear pin" .. thats usually a half moon shaped small metal part that keeps the flywheel locked rotationally to the crankshaft .. it is designed to shear off if there is an excessive sudden load on the engine .. the flywheel will then spin without turning the crankshaft .. the same thing will happen if you have broken the connecting rod .. (a rod failure is often preceded by lots of clatter from the engine) .. the head gasket or shear key are much more likely to be your problem .. if you cant see in the spark plug hole you might try using a straw to feel the piston motion .. its possible that without the spark plug in place the piston might move even with a bad shear pin .. because with no compression the piston will move freely .. if thats the case you can stop the piston motion with a wood dowell thru the spark plug hole .. if it moves in spite of your dowell resistance then consider the head gasket option ..

If the head is shot, go to Home Depot and in the garden center, you will find many replacement type heads. They may have one that will fit your machine, because they carry universal replacement string heads. Check them out because they are cheaper than the small engine repair shop.

un screw recoil cover and remove be careful because if spring is broke can cause it to pop out unexpectedly and spring is sharp check rope if off track use screw driver to reinsert and should wind back if rope broken will need to replace if spring or coiler damaged also need replacement

Self propelled cadet mower locked up how to unlock


Check engine oil level first for proper level.If it has oil in it PULL SPARK PLUG WIRE OFF SPARK PLUG IF MORE THAN A SINGLE CYLINDER PULL ALL PLUG WIRES OFF. Put unit on its side and grab the blade and see if you can move it in either direction or if the engine is locked up.

Broken Cub Cadet


I dont own one or there but it is an easy repair. Find a wrench/socket that will fit the 3 or 4 bolts holding down the pull cord (recoil) cover and remove them and the cover. (Prob. a 10 mm socket) Then wrap a cord/narrow rope CLOCKWISE around the pulley 3-5 times and prepare mower to start as you normally would and pull the rope. Now you can cut your grass before it becomes unmanageable. Take the recoil to any small engine repair shop and have them replace the rope and then you can reinstall the recoil. In my area the charge $7-$10 for this.

Hi, the carby needs to be stripped down an all jets blown out with compressed air. Also check that fuel is flowing to the carby, do this by pulling the fuel hose off the carby and cranking the engine. Regards Phil.
