Take the plug wire off of the plug and try to turn the motor over by the blade,if it turns it should be ok,if it doesnt,it is seized or vapor locked,it is not the recoil,it has to do with the engine,if it doesnt budge,take the plug out and put 3 in 1 oil in the hole and turn over a few times,put plug back and start,good luck,you may have run low on oil and the rings seized

You will need to take the recoil starter apart and inspect. The pull cord may have to be replaced.

Hard pulling starter rope


You say Pull rope mechanism is ok, How do you know that? Ive's seen them get the rope a little off and gets caught being wedged into a small clearance. Is the rope wearing? I bet if you take it apart put a new nylon rope and some wd-40 in rubbing surfaces including the ratchet area it will be good as new. Crank bearing has to get really bad to effect pull. How is the spark?

Why is the rope starter not engaging the motor how do i fix it or do i need to return it


Try pulling the rope slowly until the starter engages the flywheel (you should feel when it engages) then give a good pull to start the engine. Don't give the rope a quick hard pull in one motion. You will probably need to do this three or four times before the engine starts. Of course push the primer button the number of times called for in your engine instructions before trying to start the engine. If you still don't think the starter is engaging the flywheel if would take it back where you bought it if it's new.

Torro elec start just hums when I push start will not turn ovger


If you pull the starter rope, does the engine turn over OK? If it does, then the starter needs to be replaced... or if it's 12V, the battery may be dead.

If you can't pull the starter rope, either, then either the engine is seized or something is obstructing the mechanism - branches? Rocks? A rat's nest?

Starter cord will not pull


The pull cord or rope works on a tight spring just under the cover that the rope is in. Usually three to four small bolts on the edge of the cover to remove to repair/replace either the spring or the rope. First I would try to turn the motor manually with your hand on the flywheel, it should move around either direction freely with no effort. If it does not the motor itself maybe stuck not the rope. Then you have a seized engine and a different problem to deal with.

Pull starter stuck


If the pull start is stuck, it is normally because it is kinked and knotted inside the coil housing. Take the top off, pull out the spool, rewind the rope, put back together, and pull start away!

Pull cord gets stuck


I recently had a similar problem with an old briggs 3hp engine. In my case the starter clutch was not engaging properly. I then removed the starter rope/clutch mechanism, cleaned it, and rewound the spring. This job is not too difficult but requires a little research if you haven't done it before. It was my first time so I watched several youtube videos (separate videos for the clutch and the starter rope). A few important details on winding the spring were described in the user manual for the Briggs starter rope replacement kit (about $10, including the winding tool). Good luck!

I tried to start the pressure washer by lulling the cord, there was sharp popping noise, and the engine would not crank to start. It is a Honda K. washer. What went wrong? Pls advise, thanks.


Make sure your oil level is correct and not overfull. If ok, pull the sparkplug out. Then, pull the starter rope to see if the engine spins freely. If it does, pull it 4-5 more times to clear the cylinder of oil or gas. Put the plug back in and try it again.
However, if the rope fails to pull freely, you either have a locked engine or pump. You will have to seperate the pump from the engine to determine which is locked up.

MTD Yard Machine CD000147 6HP 21 inch ..The problem is "Cannot pull the starter string for start. The string or engine stuck to pull the starter. We didn't use it for the whole winter.


The operator presence bail must be in the run position to release the flywheel brake. If you can't pull the rope with the bail in the run position, your rope is fouled. You will have to remove the shroud and take it to a repair shop.

The rope on my generator gets stuck as i pull to turn it on


Assuming the rope stays on the internal pulley, it is NORMAL for the rope to require great force at points in the cranking cycle (once per revolution of the crankshaft). These are the compression strokes and the force is MANY times the initial pulling force. If the rope returns easily, then the starter assembly is probably normal. It takes a strong arm and fast movement to start the enginess via pull rope. Some units have a compression release to ease this a bit.
