SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: MTD Yard Machines 22'' mower, pull cord won't extend

Found out that after unboxing the mower you have to pull the handle out 8 inches to a second set of holes for the T-bolts near the frame. Up under the frame of the mower the handles go down and block the blade from turning.

If the recoil starter was pulling free after you took it off, Are you sure the engine isn't seized?

Brand new snowblower. Engine will not start


Stuck? you mean if you try to use the pull starter the engine will not let you pull the cord out?
Will it not start OR is the engine frozen. help us with your description
Take the Spark Plug out and see if that helps it turn over. Maybe the float in the Carburetor is stuck open and the cylinder filled with gas Causing Hydrolock.

My recoil starter won't pull out it is stuck


Just take the cover bolts for the pull cord off. Then see if it works. There are usually two cogs that engage into the shaft of the engine. These cogs push outward when you pull the cord, engaging the shaft of the engine.

When pulling start cord i cant pull and the shaft seems stuck


Could be a number of problems, including seized engine. Check to see if the engine break is releasing when you pull on the break release lever. Another check is the possibility that the rope has become tangled in the housing in which it resides.

If my generator shut off due to low lubricant will it reset automatically? If not is there a reset valve/button?


The pull cord is like a starter on a car (separate from the motor/engine). If the pull cord will not turn it could be because the motor/engine is seized.

Pull start won't pull, seems stuck.


When you pull the cord it will turn the blade. Therfore if the blade is stuck or clogged with clippings the starter cord will seem stuck. In addition, the throttle on the handgrip need to be fully depressed for the starter cord to work. Last, some mowers have a saftey which lock the starter if the wheels are engaged. Hope this helps.

Pullstart wont pull


sometimes the float in the carb can stick causing the gas to fill the engine, this will prevent the engine from moving and therefore locking the pull cord. check the oil, is there gas in the oil? remove the spark plug and try to pull the cord again. gas may come out of the plug hole . if this is the problem you must change the oil and fix the carb. the other cause could be that the engine is seized. ouch.

I hope this helps

remove the spark plug.  And pull the cord again.  if the carb float is stuck down or you overfilled the oil you could be hydro-locking the engine.  Check.
