Question about Mtd 22" Yard Machine Push Mower

2 Answers

I hit a rock and bent the blade on a yard machine. Replaced the blade and tried to start the mower, but the start rope doesn't come out all the way and recoils hard as I'm trying to pull it out.

    Are you sure? The mower started fine before I replaced the blade.

    Appreciate the help.

    Yep, I just figured it out. It's up and running again. Thanks

I did the same exact thing over the weekend, try adjusting your new blade unscrew the main bolt to the blade about 1/2 turn that should get it spinning again, same exact thing happened to me. Good Luck

In addition to bending the blade, you bent the shaft of the motor. There is no fix to a bent shaft. Therefore you will have to either replace the engine or get a different mower.

I HIT A ROCK AND BENT THE BLADE NOW THE ENGINE HAS A MISS


You mean the engine is vibrating? It sounds like you bent the crankshaft. The cost of a new engine may outweigh your want to repair it. To be sure, take the blade off of the mower and start it up. If you still feel a vibration, then the crankshaft is no good.

Bent Shaft???


Check that the blade securing bolt is secure. While you're there, have somone SLOWLY pull the starter rope. It will be obvious if anything is bent to the extent you describe.

If this machine has a blade clutch, engage blades while you do the pull test (DISCONNECT PLUG WIRE!!!!)

Oooh boy, I know you bent the shaft, but why it is blowing oil out the carb, I don't know if I would even bother with the blade, you could go buy the same mower, then you would have some parts. Unless you just bumped it hard enough to throw oil around in there, it might settle down, but it is a long shot. I hit a stump once and bent the crank, it was lights out for that mower. Hope this helps.

Yard Machines 22 inch mower, I dumped it on its top over the weekend, bent the blade, replaced it, now wont start, did leak oil out of the air filter, cleaned it out real well still wont start


if you bent the blade most likely you bent the crankshaft too.
Remove the spark plug and pull the rope and remove excess oil from the spark plug hole
check the spark plug for spark if you have none then a flywheel key is sheered a more in depth fix.
If you get it started you may notice a whole lota vibration due to a bent crank shaft or maybe not?
