Question about Mtd 22" Yard Machine Push Mower

Open Question

Replace Pull Cord, But no Resistance in rewind casing.

Mother In Laws Lawn mower. I want to replace the Pull Cord. The rewind does not have any spring resistance, but I don't think the spring band is broken. I think that there is some kind of special way of doing it? The Mower has some kind of electric start key on the handle, but I am suspect of a starter, unless it is very tiny. I do see were it could possibly be, w/ a white gear, but it still has a Pull Start, and there is no battery.

SOURCE: lawn mower troubles

You must first remove the cover assembly which houses the starter pulley. Pull the old rope completely out until it no longer moves. Hold the starter pulley and remove the old rope. Try to wind the starter pulley spring tighter if possible. DON'T LET GO. The starter rewind spring must be wound before installing the new rope. After winding the spring, thread the new rope through the cover and into the hole in the pulley. Tie a good knot in the end and let the rope wind slowly into the housing. Once you have this done, replace the cover, get the proper length of rope, thread it through the handle, tie a knot in this end and your ready to go.

SOURCE: the rope broke on my lawn mower and I am trying to

If your rope broke, there was no reason to take the spring out. The rope can be replaced just by taking the rewind housing off, turning pulley to get rest of old rope out, wind the pulley (and spring) the direction the rope would be pull it when starting. Then , when it's wound tight, back off to align the holes in pulley and cover. Hold it there, stick about an 8' piece of rope from the outside through the pulley and tie a knot. Hold the rope and let the spring pull the rope back into the starter. an tie handle back. Take your housing, and spring to a shop. They can re-install the spring and put on a rope a heck of a lot cheaper that buying that whole assembly.

SOURCE: lawn mower pull cord

This works best with two people. Remove cover and pull cord will be inside cover. If your handle on pull cord is attatched to a metal ring up on the handle, you will need 8 foot of new pull cord.
With all the old cord removed, wind cord pulley 6 revolunations, now, have someone hold the pulley, while you string the new cord thru pulley and out the cord hole on cover. Be sure to put a knot on the end going thru pulley. Draw cord all the way thru and out of the cover. Attatch the handle and let it rewind. You will have extra cord, this will be used up going from engine up the handle. I hope this helps

Replace spring for pull cord on husqvarna 65021 RS lawn mower


if the spring is still in its compartment and the cord just hangs off some and it used to recoil all the way, the coil , spring , and rope are gathering dirt, the spring wants to be dry or have some graphite on it and the string needs to be clean, .
take off the housing that holds the pull rope, clean around it on the inside, pull it a few times to let out the dust .it wont come off. on the inside you can wrap the rope another time around the pulley, if you really need to. try to clean it first. Don't take apart if you don't have to , it will spring out and its 6 feet long!!!! not easy to get back in.

How do i rewind the recoil spring on my craftsman lawn mower?


Normally these small engines use a clock spring to retract the rope.
Remove the cover on the top and you should find the spring either broken or the tab where the spring end has broken off or jumped out of the mount.
You will need to pre-load the spring with enough tension to retract the rope.
Remove the pull handle from the rope, load the spring and then wrap the rope around the pully holding the pully and spring in the loaded position. place the end of the rope through the hole and tie up the handle. The rope should pull and retract without being installed on the engine.

How do i fix the pull start and re tension it so cord retracts?


You take the top of the motor off with the starter, then rewind the spring,then is a good idea to replace the rope with a new one they sell rope at a lawnmower store, get 5 feet or more if the rope is up on the handle, take a piece of rope with you to get the correct size.

I replaced the pull cord on an mtd mower. and now it won't rewind the cord?


You have to tension the spring before installing the cord. Remove the cord. Put the recoil assembly in a vise. Prepare the ends of the cord so they can be threaded into place. Spin the pulley in the proper direction until it is tight. Align the hole in the housing with the hole in the pulley. Thread the rope in and knot it and pull tight. Slowly let the spring tension retract the rope. Cut the rope to length, install handle, knot and test.

Spring not working on my lawn mower


You need to take the engine cover off. Then inspect the pulley where the rope is wrapped around. There should be two little tabs that flip out when you yank on the cord (they engage the cup on top of flywheel) make sure they are properly seated (not at an angle or broken off). Then untie the rope and remove it from the pulley. Then carefully turn the pulley counter clock wise a few times and then let go of it. (Watch your fingers so you don't get pinched) If it spins back your spring should be fine. You just have to turn the pulley again until it gets some pretty good tension. Then use a srewdriver or something to hold it in place so it doesn't unwind. Put rope back into the pulley and tie it off. Hold onto the rope and remove screwdriver and let rope go back in. Try pulling rope and make sure it is working before reinstalling.

If you find that the spring is broken they are a pain to rewind. You can probably buy a new engine shroud with the rewinder on it but it is probably pricey.

If you can find a replacement rewinder only (no engine shroud) you can remove the rivets that hold the rewinder on the shroud and put new rewinder assembly on and rerivet on (make sure you have the rope in the right position)

How this helps you.
Let me know
