    Hello kpowell330:



    Have you Checked the Drive Belt?

    Is the Cable Attached to the Lever and the Transmission?

    Thanks.

I have a Snapper self-propelled lawnmower and The starter cord will not pull out to get it started. What do I do next?


Hi Patricia,
There is probably a safety lever that has to be pulled back toward the handle in order to release the flywheel. (This lever is on the top side of handle.) Once you have it firmly against the handle it should start. To stop the mower, simply release the lever. There may also be a 2nd lever to engage the self-propelled (located under the handle). It may be difficult to start with this one pulled.

My toro self propelled lawn mower won't roll backwards... the wheels are locked up


My Toro Pace Master self propelled 22" 6.75 mower will not move by itself. I can push the mower and cut. It does start with no problem. I have a cable on left side of the mower that extends to the top of the handle broken off at the top of the mower and is loose. Is there a way to check to see if this is why it will not self propel. It attaches to the push handle that does I push down to propel the mower. Any suggestions?
