SOURCE: Pull cord broke on my lawn boy mower,new cord won't retract??

I don't know exactly what you have there, but starters in general work pretty much the same. What you have to do with any starter when you replace the rope is to first wind up the spring with the pulley. Turn the pulley in the direction it would be turning if you were pulling the rope. When it's wound tight, back off to align the rope hole in the cover and the pulley. Stick the rope from the outside through the cover and pulley and tie a knot. Then let the spring tension pull the rope into the starter. Hope that helps. Dwain

SOURCE: Stuck pull cord on Toro 6.5 self-propelled mower

1) Common problem when a mower sits for several weeks at a time between mowing;
check for extra grass debris to be glogged between the blade and the mower shell.

2) If the mower has a 'bail' or 'zone' control handle;
this releases a brake mechanism on the flywheel to allow it to rotate, and after it is running, releasing the lever will 'kill' the engine.

NOTE* when transporting a push mower in the trunk of a car, try to keep the mower as level as possible.

*extra note when mower has been transported in the back of a car;
sometimes the mower is placed in a trunk at such a severe angle that the oil from the crankcase is forced around the rings and sits on top of the piston so that when you try to pull the rope you have a 'hydra' lock. (that is when a liquid is between the piston and the spark plug) You cannot compress a liquid, so the rope appears stuck.

If this happens, remove the spark plug (make sure the loose plug wire is fastened away from any combustable that comes out of the spark plug hole *** AND THERE WILL BE A HUGE STREAM OF OIL AND GASOLINE, SO BE PREPARED TO CLEAN UP A MESS ***
pull as normal until fluid is dispelled from internal engine
clean or replace the spark plug
a few more pulls (no choke required) and you are up and going

SOURCE: Just want to know eaxactly

Before you go thru a lot of unnecessary work, did you hit something recently, or did you put gas in your mower that was sitting in a gas can for a while. If you hit something, your timing is off. If gas fill possibly condensation /water in gas.
Back to your question, you can test your plug by taking it out, leave in spark plug wire, place bottom against engine for ground , and pull the starter cord. If plug makes spark ,it's OK. Air filter is attached to end of carburator in the area of your primer button. Usually one screw holds on the cover to the filter. If the filter is dirty black, change it. If the filter is put up to sun and you can see the light it's OK.
If you wish to get back to me for any additional questions ,I would be more than happy to help you. GOOD LUCK.

Pull cord won't retract


Hi Susan. It sounds like the spring has either snapped or become un attached. It's going to be a two person job to re do it. It may be worth while going to a scrap metal merchant and getting the recoil starter of an old mower.

Poulan lawn mower cord won't retract


New or used unit? If new can you return it ? If not you will need to take the recoil assembly off the engine and rewind the spring. Check inside the recoil assembly to see if the spring is broken or just popped out of place on either end. If it is broken your done. You will need to find a Poulan dealer to get a new spring. If new take it to a Poulan dealer for warrenty replacement. If you want to try to rewind the spring look to see where one end of the spring fits into the housing and the other into the spool. On the edge of the puley should be a notch. Place the rope in the notch and turn the pulley it in the direction needed to wind the spring about 4 or 5 turns. If it now pulls all the rope in you are done.If not put the rope back in the notch and wind the spring tighter till the rope is all pulled in.

I have a 158cc lawnmower Model PO500n22S (or 5). It starts but then stops as if shut off or out of gas. I re-prime and the process repeats. The mower Is brand new and only used twice.HELP!!!


It is acting like the main jet is blocked in the carburetor. This may have happened by debris from in the gas can entering the tank during fill up. The only way to find out though is to take the carburetor apart and inspect it.

I hope this helps you get it running.

Just installed a new pull cord...the cord does not retract. How do I fix the problem?


The best way i found is to twist counter clock wise a dozen turns,hold the spool with vise grips,feed the roop through all holes you need to go through, into the reel knot, i burn the knot, keeps it from slipping out,then slowly let the spring bring the slak in when i release the vise grips!
