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.

SOURCE: lawn mower wont start. changed air filter, spark

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

SOURCE: i have a ryobi lawn mower with a 6.5 hp motor. it

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.

Using an electrically insulated tool pull the spark plug cable from the plug.
Presumably the kill switch needs to be changed

How to fix Mower cord stuck after hitting rock?


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.

check your mower for interlock switches that might interupt spark for safety reasons.

A chute switch or something like that. Check your owners manual for troubleshooting.

Unplug the keyswitch and try pull starting to rule out a bad switch.

If it still doesnt have spark you might need a new coil.

The coil is right under the recoil cover and are fairly cheap.

A set of hand tools and $30-50 for the part should do it.

Good luck and be careful.

My lawnmower won't start


Hi,
My first action would be to check for fire. Pull the spark plug wire and either snap an extra plug onto the wire, or pull the mower's plug and snap into the wire. Pull or try the key start, to see if the plug is firing.
If it's not firing, you'll have to look at other possibilities... eg kill switch or coil issues.
I hope this helps... Good luck!
