Open Question

Okay someone answered my question last night, so here is a new one. I got the pull rope to work and was able to pull when trying to start the mower it felt like the rope was pulled back and the motor just stopped. I was pulling it just fine but all of a sudden it just yank back in the pull rope. Thanks for all of your help.

SOURCE: Lawn mower died. Pull rope locked up

remove the spark plug and try to pull the rope. Sometimes the coil can get loose and wedge against the flywheel. if that's not the problem then pour a little oile in the spark plug hole, let it set a bit, if it still won't turn over then you have an internal engine problems. Not very common but it can happen

SOURCE: ROPE ON MOWER WON'T PULL OUT

I agree, it sounds like the mower is fouled with foliage at the blade. Pull off the spark plug wire and tilt the mower on its side opposite of the carburetor, check the underside of the mower for impacted grass clippings.

SOURCE: Pull rope seems to be locked up...won't pull

make sure you can turn the blade by hand, make sure grass isn't stopping the blade after that make sure the break cable isn't bad, sometime's the cable don't disengage the break from the flywheel. Hope this works.

Mower cranks over fuel pump working spark to plugs mower won't start?


The above answers are good places to check, however, any combustible engine needs three things in order to work. Fuel, air, and compression. If the above answers check out, you may have a compression problem. To check, remove spark plug and put one of your fingers over the hole the plug came from and have someone pull on the starter rope or turn on starter, if electric start. Your finger should be forced out of the hole. If not, then you probably have internal engine problem, which could be several things. Valves and or piston would be prime suspects. Sticking valves caused by bent valve stems. Valves not moving due to bad cam. Worn piston rings. Broken piston rod. Etc. These, however, usually give an early warning before giving out. When last used, was there any unusual noise? This implies that there is no or very little compression felt from spark plug hole. Hope this further helps diagnose your problem. Good luck.

Remove recoil rope assembly. Ensure rope is properly wrapped around. While recoil assembly is removed use ratchet and socket to rotate fly wheel, remove spark plug first, observe compression and exhaust at spark plug whole during rotation of fly wheel. Clean or replace spark plug. Ensure oil is full. 30w. Set spark plug gap. Always use Stabile in gas. Replace coil rope is required. Purchased by the foot at any mower repair store.

Toro Electric Start Problem


Remove spark plug and observe condition. Fouled with oil, bad motor. With plug removed pull rope several times to blow out cylinder. Spray WD40 in spark plug hole, pull rope several times see if oil blows out. Spray a lot of starter fluid in spark plug hole, replace plug. Spray starter fluid in air cleaner area of carb, try to start. Replace spark plug, try to start. Ensure oil is full, all mowers have a low oil sensor now. 30w oil. Always use Stabile in gas.

I have a honda gx390 13 horse engine I just put a new pull Rope on it and cleaned the carb its been sitting for 3k10 years when I pull the rope slowly it will turn the engine when I give it a good yank...


This is a common problem. The valves need adjusting in the motor. You may eventually get it started and running in this condition but you will probably end up breaking your pull rope a few times in the process. Take it to someone who works on small engines like a mower repair shop.

How do I put in a new pull string


Hi

Please check the bellow link…

http://www.kichline.com/chuck/fixit/mowers/rope.html

Unscrew the coil housing for the rope using a socket set or screwdriver. Do not tip the mower over on its side when working on it because this can often cause oil and gas to leak out. Check out the coil wheel. Depending on where the rope broke, you might have some rope left on the coil wheel. You can feed the old rope back through its hole and retie the pull handle if you have enough rope to pull start the mower. Next, replace the housing and then screw it back in place. If you do not have enough rope, you will need to replace it with a new one. You can take a wrench and loosen the bolt that holds this in place. When you pull the wheel off, in most cases it will include the winding spring that coils the rope automatically.
Loosen the bolt that holds the coil pulley in place. When you take off the coil pulley, the coil spring will come off with it in most cases. Cut off the old rope using a knife. To remember which way the rope was coiled, make an arrow with a marker.Pull the new rope through the hole and tie a knot about the same size as the old rope because you do not want the new knot to catch on something when the coil pulley coils and uncoil. Wrap the new rope in the direction of the arrow you drew. Next, bolt the coil pulley back in place. To make sure it is working properly, unplug the spark plug- this allows you to pull on the rope to make sure it coils and uncoils correctly.
Pull the end of the rope through the hole in the housing. Tie the old pull handle to the end of the new rope. If the rope is too long, you might need to cut off the extra length and discard it. Place the house into its spot and screw or bolt it back on. Finally, put the spark plug wire back into place.

Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.

How to install pull rope on Craftsman 917.37717 lawn mower


First, this is best done with two people, unless you have 4 hands. Second, with rope pull cover off the mower and laying on table with rope pulley up so you can see it, remove all the old rope. Next, measure 8 foot of new rope.
Now, line up the holes where rope will go thru the cover and into pulley, now with someone holding the cover, rotate rope pulley 6 complete turns, now hold pulley there, while putting new rope thru the rope openings in rope pulley and outer cover. Tie knot on end by rope pulley and have who ever was holding cover and other end of rope, slowly release the rope so it rewinds, install rope handle and walla, your done. 5 minute job, depending on how much coffee you drink. Hope this helped you.

Troy bilt mowers rope will only come out a little bit. what kind of tool do i need to take the rope cover off.flat screw with hole in middle?


I know what you are talking about. but i don't know what the tool is called, but i have an answer to your second problem(rope coming out a little bit). the problem is that there is a lot of junk stuck in the place where it spins. all you have to do is soak it in mineral spirits over night, and in the morning turn it in and out till it works perfect. I worked on one of these last night

When try to pull on the rope to start the mower is will not move. It feels like it is stuck. But I can move the blade around. Thank you


I thing the recoil spring is stuck it may be rusty. Its time for a complete maintenance on this mower. But you could try tapping the top of the recoil where the rope coils up into. Bang it a few times as you pull on the rope. this may free it up. Good luck DFD
