    You have compression lock. Remove the sparkplug(s) or simply wait a few hours, and the pistons will seep pressure on their own.

Can't pull the start cord for my lawn mower. Any idea what I should try? Someone suggested wd40?


Cord is tangled or stuck in the starter assembly. Open it up and free it so you can pull and then have it retract back into the housing.

Yardman blower jut quit running like it was out of gas, restarted then did the same thing, now its difficult to pull the cord to strt


I'll guess and say that the carb flooded the engine and you have hydro lock.Pull the sparkie and clear the extra fuel.
The carb is at fault,IMO.
if the needle get a little dirt in there it will hold the float open and flood the motor.
Dirt.

My lawnmower which is a TORO 6.5hp-Tecumseh engine won't start. When I pull the cord the valves start to move but on the second pull it seems to sieze up and blow some vapor out the exhaust.It ran fine...


It sounds like hydraulic lock. The carb is dumping to much fuel into cylnder. Pull the plug when it feels locked up and pull again, if it blows gas out of the plug hole you have carb problem. Maybe needle is ****, maybe float has a hole in it and is sinking causing flooding.

Chain saw chain stopped moving


Was it running and shut down and was froze or when you went to restart it was frozen? Two things I have seen cause this other than a seized engine. One - chain bound up. Remove side cover and inspect chain mechanism. Two- the pull cord is bound up. Remove the pull cord cover and inspect.
