SOURCE: Cannot pull the cord more than 6 inches to start Toro lawn mower.

Hi Patti, If you can not pull the cord more that what you said, try removing the spark plug and see if that makes a difference, if not, leave the spark plug out to prevent accidental starting, raise up the front of the mower and see if you can turn the blade if not...it only gets worse from there. If you can't turn the blade from under the mower, the engine is more that likely seized up, sorry

SOURCE: won't start

the blades may be locked. remove the spark plug cap so the mower won't start unexpectedly. tilt the mower on its side, air filter facing upwards. work the blades until they loosen and turn freely.

SOURCE: toro self propelled 22 inch recycler lawn mower start pull cord is "stuck"

Casey,

My son just bought a new Toro self propelled 22" recycler and has had problems on two different occasions. The mower just bogs down to a stop and when he tried to pull the starter cord, it was very VERY difficult to pull. At first I thought the engine had seized up for some reason (no oil?), but we found the problem.

First, disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug (to avoid the engine starting); tip the mower on its side and check very carefully the pulley and transmission belt. In his case, a piece of wood had gotten stuck between the belt and the pulley. Removing it fixed the problem (now he mows a little higher so as not to get so close to any debris). (We did have one further problem after that - the engine would not start - not even fire. After pulling and pulling, checking for gas, and checking that the air filter was cleean, we decided to check if the cylinder was flooded - we removed the spark plug, wiped and dried if off, and replaced it. It started right away.)

This belt 'n pulley arrangement isn't the best idea, if you ask me.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Toro Lawn Mower Electric Start Won't Engage

you'll need to pull the starter. It sound like your Bendick's is bad. that's the upper gear drive assay. the only other res ion would be, low power to the starter, and not receiving an acquit amount of amp to reach the rpm's it needs. good luck

Briggs and stratton 35 classic wont start, what can i do?


take the plug lead off and hold it near to some metal part on the mower, move the throttle lever to around midway and pull the mower cord, if there is a spark the electrical part of the mower is working.
remove the plug, put the lead back on the plug and earth the plug on a metal area and pull the cord again, if there is spark across the points on the plug then the plug is ok, if not replace the plug and try again.
assuming that the plug and lead checks out fine then check the fuel supply, remove the air filter from the side of the carbi and spray some fuel directly into the throat of the carbi and pull the starter cord, if the engine runs for a few seconds you can assume that you have a fuel problem, possibly the filter inside the fuel tank is clogged.

Masport 4 stroke mower...started it up and it worked for a couple minutes with a strange rattling growling noise.. Oil ok and petrol filled but the mower just shut it's self down and im not sure w


It will run for a few minutes and then shut down?
Lets ignore the growl for now. Loosen Gas cap and see if it will keep running. The rattle might be in the pull cord mechanism..possibly not related to stalling issue

Craftsman Walk behind lawnmower


usually theres just a few bolts to take off on the top, and the whole rip cord assembly will pull right out, allowing you to install the new one.

My cub cadet src 621 has been difficult to start since the headgasket was replaced. In fact pulling the starter cord is not only difficult it sometimes kicks and almost rips your arm off. Why is is so...


If its ripping you arm off the timing is off. Check the flywheel key it is more than likely sheared off. Pull the cover and look down on the flywheel and you should see this.Your unit is not clear to me so whatever unit you have check the timing and when its right it will not pull your arm off.Good luck.
