It is a Simplicity snow blower 38. it ran putting it away the day before. could not turn it over with pull cord or electric start. it acts like the gears/sprocket is locked up.


Mine did that and the next day mine was jammed with ice. Put it in a heated shop for a few hours and let it melt and dry out it is ok now. Water had got into the sprocket and froze.

I have a Troy-Bilt Briggs and Stratton 675 series lawn mower. The pull cord is stuck and will not move. I can lightly pull the cord repeatedly and the cord slowly allows me to pull more but if I release it...


Take the plug out and try to move the blade. If the motor won't rotate, the problem might be with the motor and the cord can't move because of it.

How do I replace the electric cord for my Simplicity Shadow Vacuum cleaner model S13L? It's a canister cleaner.


Since the problem was with the plug on the electric cord, I replaced the plug, I cut the old plug, peel off the plastic cover on the cord, they were two wires, black & white, I purchased a new plug in a Home center, attach the wires to the new plug and it works just beautiful now, it was a two prong plug, which made it easier to fix.

Readoout says


1. Turn machine OFF and unplug electrical cord from wall or power strip.
2. Turn ON printer without the power cord plugged in (this will discharge the power capaciter in the printer).
3. Plug electrical power back in and turn on printer...
4. It should have reset.

Another possibility:
The scanner arm has the physical "lock" switch in the locked possition. Turn OFF printer and move the switch to the unlock position. Turn on printer.
This switch is for whenever the printer is moved to a different location and will protect the scanning bar.

Hope this helps!
