Right off the top of my head I would ask if you have the safety on the handle engaged so that the brake hitting the flywheel is released. If you're engaging it and the rope still does not pull, the spring in the recoil could be bound. This is relatively easy to fix but need to know a little more to know how to help.

My Toro mower won't start. The cord will not allow me to pull it out all the way. It seems to be caught on something.


Disassemble the starting mechanism and remove the snag in the line that is preventing you from pulling cord all the way out. Till you do that, you will be pounding salt.

Repair lawn mower pull cord


Home Depot sells a replacement pull cord kit that has great instructions. My mower, however, had pop rivets holding the cover on the engine, so if yours does too, get a pop rivet tool with the correct size pop rivets before you start drilling out the old pop rivets.

I have a Troy-Bilt Briggs and Stratton 675 series lawn mower. The pull cord is stuck and will not move. I can lightly pull the cord repeatedly and the cord slowly allows me to pull more but if I release it...


Take the plug out and try to move the blade. If the motor won't rotate, the problem might be with the motor and the cord can't move because of it.

Starting issues. Can't pull cord.


Make sure your flywheel brake is not engaged or the cover is hindering the mechanism somehow after it is installed

Problem with mower string


The metal clamp on the cord is, to prevent the cord from going all the way in should it break. There should be a place on the handle of the mower for the cord to go through instead of having to pull from the mower you can pull the rope from the handle
