Yard works lawn mower

The handle assembly fastens to the mower by fitting over 2 studs. With the slightest flex, the handle holes slip off the studs. It's a very cheap design. Are there any easy fixes?

Sounds like you need a complete tuneup. Start with the carb. then clean all coil contacts, air filter and this will start you in the right direction. Good luck.

Remove gas cap. If mower now runs without stalling, your problem is the vent in the gas cap is blocked. Replace the cap. Common problem!

SOURCE: lawn boy 2 cycle mower won't start

Replace the spark plug and retry.
If a new plug does not work push the spring button on the bottom of the carburetor to make sure fresh fuel is in the fuel bowl.
if this does not work remove the spark plug and squirt some light oil (like wd 40) right into the spark plug hole; roll the engine over slowly a couple times using the starter rope. put the plug back in and snap the plug wire in place. If the mower now starts after a couple pulls it means the rings are worn, replace the rings.

Remove nuts mounting recoil assembly. Observe how rope is wound around pulley. Find end knot in pulley wheel. Cutoff end knot and remove old rope. Find end knot in handle, use needle nose pliers pull thru old rope. Rope is sold by the foot at mower repair shops. Replace rope as observed before removal. Cut to size after wrapping recoil assembly and attaching thru handle at proper length if at recoil assembly or on mower handle. Ensure good knot in hole of recoil assembly and handle.

I replaced the pull cord on an mtd mower. and now it won't rewind the cord?

You have to tension the spring before installing the cord. Remove the cord. Put the recoil assembly in a vise. Prepare the ends of the cord so they can be threaded into place. Spin the pulley in the proper direction until it is tight. Align the hole in the housing with the hole in the pulley. Thread the rope in and knot it and pull tight. Slowly let the spring tension retract the rope. Cut the rope to length, install handle, knot and test.

Your problem is at other end . Engagement problem is probably due to a loose belt. Make adjustment in that area of mower. GOOD LUCK.

Mower blade is spinning loose is not connected to motor. did a stud brake cause not is tight

Don't ever run a mower with a loose blade. Most push mowers have a blade adapter that slips over the engine shaft and allows the fastening bolt (and it should be a special hardened one with 6 lines on the head of it) to thread into the end of the crankshaft. The adapter could have slipped and needs to be repositioned on the shaft so that the blade can be properly tightened.

Where is the oil drain plug?

If you look under the mower, there will be a square hole that a socket wrench will fit into. It will either be 3/8 or 1/2. You put it in there and start to screw it out. Once loose, it will come right out. It is more than likely plastic.

Changing blades on lawn mower

Very first thing to do - - UNPLUG THE SPARK PLUG
Lean the mower backward on the handlebar (take off the bag if it has one) and hold it down with something heavy like a cement block, bucket of water, anything that will keep it from tipping back up on you. Get a small block of wood like a 2x4, or similar to block the blade from turning. Find a socket that fits the bolt or nut holding the blade. A socket is best as they can be quite tight and a wrench is likely to slip and ruin the shoulders on the fastener. Using a long handled ratchet or breaker bar, turn the fastener to the left (counter-clockwise) and unscrew it all the way. Install the new blade, with the beveled side of the cutting edge UP toward the bottom of the engine, in the opposite sequence that you took it off making sure that it is lined up centered. Tighten the fastener approximately 60 foot pounds again using the wood block to prevent it from turning
