Electric mower not starting.

I have a Craftsman electric mower (18" cut) which stopped suddenly, as if the cord if the cord was pulled out. Does not start anymore. Checked that cord is OK, and electrical outlet is live. Is there a reset or internal fuse on this machine?

I have no idea if your problem is related to mine, but my B&D electric mower did the same. The cord worked on other equipment so wasn't a bad cord. It turned out I had to get a higher amp cord for the mower. Why it worked for a while on the other cord I don't know but I've had no further problems with it. The cord was expensive though.

What to do when craftsman mower pull cord won't recoil?


Sounds like the spring inside the recoil has either broken or let go so it won't recoil. If you are lucky it could be the wheel that the cord goes on is seized or stuck. You can take the recoil off most mowers by taking out two or three screws and lifting it off the engine. They can be repaired but it takes time having to be careful the spring won't spin and hurt you. I have even taken a recoil off another engine and if the holes for the little screws don't line up just drill little holes beside the old ones and reinstall the little screws.
I even used a 18 volt cordless drill to crank the engine using the bolt on the fly wheel and the right size socket. Leaving the recoil off You have an electric start that way.

I changed the blade, and now it won't start!


Did you replace the blade with a heavier blade, or an identical one? If the pull cord won't pull, it's usually either the blade or the blade shaft causing the problem. Try oiling the shaft and making sure nothing is obstructing the blade from turning.

If you have a pair of heavy gloves, try turning the blade by hand and see if it moves. Squirt some oil onto the shaft where it meets the mower and try turning it again.
