Pull the plug. MAKE SURE THE PLUG IS COMPLETLY REMOVED AND SEPARATED FROM THE MOWER!! Remove the cover with the pull start attached. see if you can turn it by the flywheel or the blade. If you can, you can just have the rewind repaired.
If not, then you have a probable bent or twisted crankshaft. Most likely not worth repair.

Hello steveacosta:

Check the Blade. If the Lift Area Behind the Sharpened Area of the Blade is Worn, then you will have the Problem you Described.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

Respectfully

SOURCE: BLack and decker electric lawn mower blaDE IS loose and not turn

If it's like mine (MM 875), it has a plastic "clutch" that has little edges on it that broke off when I was chopping sticks with the mower ;-) Went to the local B&D place and got a new one for less than $3.

But now I'm worrying about the nut holding the blade on -- if I try to get it good and tight, the plastic "clutch" spins around off-kilter... Funny how I never even looked at the blade after I bought the mower used, but never worried about the blade being loose and flying off.

I have a Briggs & Stratton Sprint 3.75 hp lawnmower and it seems the cord is pulled almost all the way out and won't retract. How will i know if it is broken? or should I be able to wind it back up...


You should be able to Fix this yourself if your a fair garage tinkering mechanic. However...I need the engine and type number off of the engine to get you parts information. The spring is broken in your recoil. It is a matter of removing the air shroud, taking off the pulley / spool and changing the spring.

and how to tension the spring:

There are 2 different types of springs used so having your engine model / type number is important so that you can get the right spring. One of the 2 part numbers is: 390066

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Pull cord wont pull,briggs 500 series


Pull the spark plug out and see if it isnt hydro locked. Someone might have overfilled the oil or the carb float may have stuck open and filled the intake with gas!

If the recoil is still stuck you can remove it from the mower and try it without any load on it. Still stuck? The unit might be rusted solid!
You can spray a little penetrating oil into it but be careful.....the oil will soak the pull cord which should be cleaned and degreased immediately following using the penetrating oil.
