Question about Garden
A wire is broken that goes to the stop switch or the switch itself is bad. (I am assuming you intended to say "I pull the spark plug wire off") I don't know what kind of mower you have but, if it has a choke, that will stop it too.

there should be four bolts holding the cover on that houses the pull cord assembly take the bolts out look inside you should see the rest of the broken cord at the other end there is a spool that the cord rolls up in to pull the cord until it stops the other end of the cord is a not in the cord pull on the knot the broken peice should come out turn the spool 2 times in the direction that is against the pressre while holding the spool in place feed the new cord in through the whole that you pulled the broken cord out of then tie the cord in a knot wind the rest of the cord up then feed the other end of the cord through the new pull handle tie the cord in a knot put the housing back on

Does it turn over? If it does, what happens? Does it sound normal when its cranking? I need more information to help. Is it a push mower or riding mower? Does it start by key or pull start?

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

I am working on one now. Customer said "it doesn't run". Ok. So, after oil/spark plug/air filter replacement...it didn't have any gas getting to the carb. Took off the bowl, and on this 2005 lawnmower, the inside of ALL of the carb was covered with a white/chalky film. Looked like tiny rust barnacles over ANY metal surface available. Silty white stuff in bowl. Blasted it all w/carb cleaner. Still couldn't get primer to work, but after I sprayed a bit o' starter in the cylinder, it started well & kept running. Until I let the bar down. Needs a new carb. Will see what the customer wants.
