SOURCE: I have bought a second-hand Honda Izy lawnmower -

Check your fuel filter in the fuel tank to make sure it is clean if it is then"
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

Remove the spark plug and try pulling the starter again. You may have a fuel leakage into the cylinder and it has caused a hydraulic lock. Check/change the needle and seat in the carb as this leaking is the usual cause if this type of problem. Good luck and please rate this solution.

SOURCE: The pull start cord

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.

Suddenly cut out whilst mowing the lawn. now wont start, pull cord stiff to pull


Something just like this happened earlier this year with my pressure washer. This is what I did to fix it and now it runs great. Check the oil. If it's black or feels the least bit tacky, drain a pint or two of the oil out and re-add that amount of Marvel Mystery Oil. Now, attempt to pull the cord all the way out, but slowly at first. It should get easier to pull after about 5 pulls. If the mower restarts, let it run for 10 minutes until the Mystery Oil is hot and has cycled around inside the engine. Then drain that oil and refill it with a quality brand of oil. To top it off, either clean or replace the air filter, and put a shotglass of Lucas gas & injector cleaner into the mower's full gas tank. I also do this to my lawnmower and weedeater. It works wonders. BTW...If you're unable to turn the engine over by pulling the cord, remove the spark plug and tilt the mower up, so you can turn the blade easily by hand (use gloves). BUT FIRST MAKE SURE THAT SPARK PLUG IS REMOVED. REMEMBER... SAFETY FIRST! Let us know if this helped you any.

Lawnmower blade wont turn


Probably bent the shaft. Disconnect the spark plug to prevent accidental starting and lay the lawn mower on its side. Slowly turn the blade with your hand and watch the center of the shaft. If it wobbles at all it is bent. $150 to $200 job. Probably time for a new mower.

Starter cord on lawnmower will not pull out


Hi Mary. You will need to remove the starter box on your mower. The coil box may be rusty or the pully may need fixing. Try using some oil spray and see if the pully now works. If the starter coil is clean the mower may be ceased.

Honda IZY back fires and pulls the starter rope out of my hand


Two possibilities here, either the blade bolt is loose ( the blade is used as a flywheel so needs to be tight ) or the flywheel key has sheared knocking the ignition timing 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.

My toro sel propelled lawn mover is not starting the cord is hard to pull


You probably have grass or other debris caught up on the drive shaft. Turn the mower over, and where the drive shaft (that the blade rides on) disappears into the mower, squirt some WD-40. Make sure to go around the circumference of the shaft.

Then turn the blade by hand (carefully -- you might want to wear thick gloves) and apply some more WD-40. The blade should become easier to turn, which will allow your pull cord to be pulled all the way out.

If the cord pulls farther than it did before but still not far enough, repeat the procedure and apply more WD-40 or oil.

Toro GT5 lawnmower - the pull cord (to start the engine) only comes out about 3 inches - I'm afraid to pull to hard for fear of breaking the line.


First - remove spark plug and squirt 3mls of engine oil in there - replace spark plug and leave overnight.

Try pulling that start handle !
Two things may happen - it snaps or - it turns over.
If it turns over - prime fuel and start in choke setting.
If the cord snaps - undo the pull start block - and take it to a lawnmower spares depot, and buy some more cord. It's quite cheap.
Get the length right so you don't have too much.
Next - the engine is probably seized - so needs freeing up. You may be able to do this with the new cord, Otherwise - take the head off the cylinder and tap the piston down with a wooden drift while turning the crank.
Use a non-setting gasket sealant like hematite red to re-use the old gasket. Lawnmowers are quite resilient.
