Is the safety lever pulled back all the way when pulling cord.
Is the oil up where it should be.
Take the spark plug out and see if its clean and before you put it back in pull the cord a few times with no plug in and make sure the gas or oil has not filled the compression chamber. If you turn the engine on its side you may let oil in the piston chamber.That has to be cleaned out before it will start.

SOURCE: kids broke pull cord

Remove the entire housing and do not drill the rivets unless you can replace them with the same size.

Couple of things, the cord could be bunched where it won't pull, the other is there are spring loaded teeth that have to engage and those could be messed up, you'll have to take off the cover of the pull cord and see

Honda pressure washer

disconnect the engine from the pump and see which unit is not turning for starters. I suspect the pump because it has water left in the pistons and rust will set in on the flap valves .You may have to pull the pump down to repair this problem

I bought a queen dual control warming blanket . I barely used it the first time I bought it a year ago. I put it into my closet for storage after the first winter. I put it on the bed today getting ready...

The flashing lights usually means theres a problem and the blanket has shut itself off so it wont cause a problem...Like burn down your house.

I love electric blankets but I have had little luck with them. Its only a matter of time before they get like this. I have never gotten one to work again after it has started to blink.

If you still have the box maybe there is a warranty.

Bought a Troy TB110 oush mower at end of last summer. I stored it all winter without opening box. I got it out today, put together and started it. It is leaking oil and blowing white smoke- What do I...

You must have stored it with the spark plug end down. This has caused the oil to get by the rings and on top of the piston. Pull spark plug out and pull starter cord to clear excess oil , put plug back in . Check oil , start mower and let it run until the excess oil burns off and some of it may still be in the muffler. Mower is ok. Some body borrowed my mower and did this resulting in the same problem.

The pull cord is stuck, can't be pulled to start

This solution applies to the Sears model 358.797200, which also appears to the FL1500LE marketed under the Craftsman name, and may apply to other, similar, blowers. Go to the site and enter the Sears model number. This blower may be prone to develop binding in the pull cord rewind spring compartment. (The binding may easily be misdiagnosed as a seized up engine.) The binding can be fixed by adding washers to increase the spacing. Open the rewind starter page on the sears site for an exploded view. I found that by placing 2 washers on each of the 5 screws (no. 7 on the diagram) which attach impeller housing (12) to the motor, I increased the spacing enough so the pull cord operated and retracted normally. The washers must go between the impeller housing and the motor. To complete the repair, you need to add a washer between the spacing flywheel (14) and the impeller(15) to keep the impeller from binding against the housing. The gasoline tank screws won't line up as well with the holes, but will fit. Install all 3 screws for the at first loosely, then tighten them down.

Cannot pull the cord more than 6 inches to start Toro lawn mower.

Hi Patti, If you can not pull the cord more that what you said, try removing the spark plug and see if that makes a difference, if not, leave the spark plug out to prevent accidental starting, raise up the front of the mower and see if you can turn the blade if only gets worse from there. If you can't turn the blade from under the mower, the engine is more that likely seized up, sorry

I've got a Danby DPAC 8399-4 portable heater/air conditioner. We usually use it as an A/C but we're trying to use the heater for the winter; we just brought it out of the closet. The fan barely works (and...

Check for obstructuions in the fan housing that may be hitting the fan blade, causing the noise and improper air flow.

Improper air flow will cause the uniot to overheat quickly and it will shut down on its high temperature limit switch.

You may also have a bad fan. Bad bearings will make a bad noise as well. Thios will cause the same symptoms described above.

Check for abstructions, if you can find one, remove it, if not replace the fan. You can usually reset the limit by simply turning off power and turning it back on after 10 min.
