How to fix stuck pull cord of a 22 inch Toro Recycler lawn mower

Is the engine seized?. Try turning the blade and if it won't turn then you have a seized engine. If that is ok your recoil has a stuck part possibly something has broken off inside. If it's an older model try shooting WD40 inside the recoil as it could be rusty.

How do I open the case around the pull cord on a Torro 22" recycler lawn mower?

It's been a while since I pulled one of those engines apart - the LV195 engines came in 2 versions. One has a detachable recoil starter that is held on by 2 screws, the other is an integral part of the cowling. Either way, the repair procedure is the same - remove the starter, or entire cowling as appropriate (may need to remove some plastic and the tank first), remove label on top, SUPPORT THE ASSEMBLY ON A DEEP WELL SOCKET or similar and drift out the central roll-pin into the centre of the socket drive the pin from outside to inside. If you don't support it, it WILL bend and make it useless. Make a note of the order of the washers and springs etc, then fit a repair kit.

Hi michael, You have most certainly put in too much oil. Try draining a bit off and then clean the spark plug with some paper towel. Leave the mower level for a few hours and then try it again.

I have just purchase a Sears 22 Lawm mower, with a Briggs and Stratton 158cc engine. I prime the motor it act like it wants to start but then dies. I pull it and try to strat it several more times and it...

The procedure for starting an engine is as follows:
  • Check that you have the throttle in the start position and/or on high revs with choke on
  • Prime the engine by pushing the button about 5 times
  • Pull out the cord until you meet resistance. Then let the cord go fully back into the engine and then pull the cord out sharply. Repeat this until the engine starts but not more than a few times.
  • If the engine doesn't start, try pressing the primer button another few times then try to pull start the engine
  • If the engine doesn't start after a few pulls it may have flooded so leave it for a few minutes before pulling the starter rope

Pull start won't pull. Engine was running then stopped. Now the pull cord won't extend

First. Turn off the water....Release all of the pressure off of the hose and pressure washer. Try and pull again. If it still won't pull check to see if there is oil in the engine. The engine may have locked up.

Check the blade and the blade shaft. Maybe something down there got bent. If the cord won't pull, there is probably something obstructing the blade from moving, or it got bent out of shape. Also try lubricating the shaft to see if that helps.

From what you describe it sounds like the line may be tangled, remove the rewind housing in order to inspect the line up close.

Its a brand new mower just got it out of the box.its a 675 series briggs and stratton and the pull cord only comes out 4 inches before the pull cord mechanism jams

The drive shaft might just need to be lubricated. Turn the mower on its side (carefully) and squirt some oil onto the drive shaft where it disappears into the mower. Turn the blade by hand and squirt some more oil in, until the blade turns easily. Then try the cord again and see if it's easier to pull.

Hope that helps!
