Why does my recoil not rewind

Probably have a broken rewind spring

My mower will not start

Did you check the cable that is attached to the arm that moves the blade up and down? If something is wrong with it, the mower won't start. My Aunt almost gave her mower away and that is all that was wrong with it. Even though you might think the blade is fully up, something might be wrong with it.

I have Scott Bonnar lawn mower and when I try to start it by pulling the cable, the cable does not retract back. How do I fix this?

Sounds like the recoil spring is broken or come un hooked., You have to remove the recoil and may have to purchase a new spring or I have found a lot of lawn mower engines have the same type of recoil that will fit each other. If you can find a junker that the recoil works take the brocken one off and replace it with a good used one. I have replaced many this way.

Pull string won;t recoil

The recoil spring has broken. These are available at any lawn mower parts supply store. The process of changing the spring is tedious but can be done by anyone with average mechanical ability. If you removed the recoil assy (and air shroud if it is riveted on) and took the assembly to a Lawn Mower Repair shop usually they will change out the spring while you wait. If you can't get the recoil assy off take the mower with you to the repair shop. Again most shops will fix it while you if wait but if they are very busy usually they are serviced within 24 hours.

If you do attempt this yourself check in the tips section of FixYa on how to change the recoil stater rope after replacement of the spring.

I highly recommend you replace the pull rope at the time of the recoil spring replacement.

One final note... there is a possibility that the pull rope spool has been damaged where the spring attaches.

Thanks for using FixYa,

Have a recoil pull start mower that won't recoil

the starter clutch probably needs cleaning. It is located right on top of the fly wheel. Pull the the pull rope housing off and you can see it
