Craftsman 21032 trimmer

I have a trimmer with the briggs and stratton 21032 engine, the pull rope starter has worn down on the interior and the teeth no longer engage the engine when pulled, ie no resistence occurs when pulling the starter cord, basically Im unsure of how to go about replacing this part, and what kind of price range a replacement or professional repair would fall in.

SOURCE: Craftsman 32cc Line Trimmer pull start will not engage engine.

With a flashlight, look into the area just in front of the pull rope. You'll see the fins on the flywheel. Turn the flywheel with a small screwdriver until you see a bracket mounted on it. There's is one on each side. While holding the flywheel still with another screwdriver, spray penatrating oil on each one and work them back and forth a few times. You'll feel them loosen up. They are spring loaded and should snap back into place. Hope you can understand this. Good luck.

The plastic gear is probably stripped and will need to be replaced.

I have a 3hp briggs & stratton//the pull rope pulls freely//it does not engage the engine and turn the engine over


You probably need to replace the starter recoil. This is not a very expensive fix. Just be aware that this problem is usually caused by having to pull the starter rope excessively because of some other starting problem. Once you replace the recoil, keep your engine running properly.

I start twice (when I pull starter rope) then the rope won't go back can I know what happen


Your starter/recoil unit has malfunctioned. Disassembly/inspection down to the point where you can get the recoil off will be required. Remove the engine cover screws. The recoil unit may be part of the cover or may be under it. You will easily be able to access it. Replacement parts for your mower are readily available.

Does the starter rope rewind? If So and You removed the engine shroud you have to be sure the Pull Starter lines up with the flywheel nut. If the rope does not rewind the return spring is broken so you have to get a spring and remove the shroud and install it. I would take the shroud off and with me to get the spring and the place may install it for you. Bolt the shroud back on and you should be in business.

It sounds like the pump is seized. Make sure any pressure has been released by pulling the trigger on the gun. Sometimes this will allow you pull the cord. If the pump is seized, a new pump would be in order.
