Question about Garden
Starter only pulls 12'' then gets stuck. There also appears to be no way to access the recoil mechanism to fix it.
I have a brand new lawn mower from Home Depot with a Briggs & Stratton engine. I had the same problem when I pulled the cord. Heard a plastic on plastic knock after the cord was pulled one foot. I went to H D and we pulled a mower off the shelf so I could duplicate the problem. I removed the cord from the holder on the handle and allowed it to retract all the way to the engine. I pulled one foot and heard the same knock. It stumped three guys!
The fourth guy said we just weren't pulling hard enough. Pull until it catches and then give it a hard yank and it will start. I got home and pulled hard so that I could attach the cord to the loop on the handle. Once the cord was secure I gave it a good yank (making sure to hold in that choke bar) and it started on the first pull.
Classic operator error!

Most push mowers have 3 bolts on the side of recoil shroud. One in front, (where plug is) and two on side.
