Make sure you can turn the blade by hand, make sure grass isn't stopping the blade after that make sure the break cable isn't bad, sometime's the cable don't disengage the break from the flywheel. Hope this works.

Snowmobile ran great all day but seemed to run different on the way home. The next day I went to start it and I couldn't pull the rope. I assumed it was locked up but not sure now.

Went to start my XL500 homelite chainsaw and the rope won't pull out.It worked fine when I ran it dry for storage, now it seems like th sprocket won't turn. looks like chain oil is comming out


If it is bar oil then the gasket is leaking between the oil tank and the crankcase, this would mean a full strip down and replace the gasket.

Stuck pull cord on Toro 6.5 self-propelled mower


1) Common problem when a mower sits for several weeks at a time between mowing;
check for extra grass debris to be glogged between the blade and the mower shell.

2) If the mower has a 'bail' or 'zone' control handle;
this releases a brake mechanism on the flywheel to allow it to rotate, and after it is running, releasing the lever will 'kill' the engine.

NOTE* when transporting a push mower in the trunk of a car, try to keep the mower as level as possible.

*extra note when mower has been transported in the back of a car;
sometimes the mower is placed in a trunk at such a severe angle that the oil from the crankcase is forced around the rings and sits on top of the piston so that when you try to pull the rope you have a 'hydra' lock. (that is when a liquid is between the piston and the spark plug) You cannot compress a liquid, so the rope appears stuck.

If this happens, remove the spark plug (make sure the loose plug wire is fastened away from any combustable that comes out of the spark plug hole *** AND THERE WILL BE A HUGE STREAM OF OIL AND GASOLINE, SO BE PREPARED TO CLEAN UP A MESS ***
pull as normal until fluid is dispelled from internal engine
clean or replace the spark plug
a few more pulls (no choke required) and you are up and going

Mower ran fine a couple days ago. Went to start


Remove the plug, pull the rope several times. Wait about 30 minutes. Put the plug back in. Try again.

Choke off? Use sparingly if at all. If you have a primer button, only press it 5 or 6 times.

Is your plug in good contition? It may need a replacement. Make sure you get the correct plug.

Let me know how this works out.

ROPE ON MOWER WON'T PULL OUT


look under neath and see if anything is stuck in the blade. You probly have a cover for the top part; see if you can pop off a plastic top if you have one.

ROPE ON MOWER WON'T PULL OUT


I agree, it sounds like the mower is fouled with foliage at the blade. Pull off the spark plug wire and tilt the mower on its side opposite of the carburetor, check the underside of the mower for impacted grass clippings.

Cannot pull rope out to start mower


Bad news , Mower has sit up too long and the piston / crankshaft has become rusty and froze in place. (fix) buy some liquid wrench it comes in a can at your local hardware store...Tilt the mower onto its front wheels and remove the spark plug. Fill the Cylindar with the oil and leave it for a couple days. after a few days lean the mower back and attempt to pour out the left over oil. Then (Check Your Oil level) preferable replace old oil and pull choke..and start mower...if the engine is still frozen (Buy a New mower) 125bucks Sears.
