I think someone failed to put oil in the fuel.
Determine if the warranty is active first. Most warranties are effective for 1 to 5 years. If yes return it to where it was purchased or find an authorized repair facility. A written diagnosis by a good independent saw shop ($10-20) might be a good idea at this point. It is difficult to argue repair charges with an authorized repair facility without some documentation in your favor.
1. Remove the starter housing. Does the starter operate smoothly? If yes, reinstall the cover and continue with 2, if no repair starter.
2. Is the saw equipped with a decompression valve? Yes continue, no proceed with 3.
· Leave the ignition off, set the valve and pull the starter.
· Pull gently to release the valve. Is there a difference in the effort required? If yes continue with 3, if no repair or replace the decompression valve.
3. Was this saw perhaps operated without oil mixed with the fuel?
· Remove the spark plug wire and plug.
· Remove the muffler, hold a light at the plug hole and inspect the cylinder through the exhaust port. Is it smooth and shiny or does it appear speckled with dull gray spots or smears?
· Pull the starter slowly, inspect the piston as it rises and falls. Is it a dull gray without scratches and gouges?
· Hold the light at the exhaust port and inspect the cylinder, above the exhaust port, through the spark plug hole. Is it shiny and smooth or speckled with gray spots or smears?
Any spots or smears on the cylinder or deep scratches and gouges in the piston indicate the saw was operated in a lean condition. Repair of this on a home owner quality saw often exceeds replacement cost. A repair estimate by the independent saw shop should be considered.
4. The final likely possibility is the saw has jumped timing. This problem or any not discussed is usually beyond the ability of the operator to repair. Please take it to a good local saw seller/mechanic for a written diagnosis before authorizing any repair. HTH

SOURCE: The rope doesn't pull smoothly. I removed the

Before installing fasteners for the recoil to the housing, pull the rope a small amount 2-4". With a small pressure from your other hand, at the same time push gently down on the recoil housing. This should partially rotate the flywheel and align the pawls to the rope rotor. Repeat this proceedure until you feel the pawls drop into place.
You may want to review the proceedure for installing a rope to complete your repair.

1) remove the recoil housing
**NOTE: normally you DO NOT need to remove the rotor pulley or spring to replace the rope. This is the area that causes so many guys a lot of extra trouble

2) locate the string that is left and the hole it is threaded thru

3) determine how much string has broken off of the rope that came out

Note: if more than 1 inch is left, then the rope needs to be replaced

4) after rope is obtained, make sure both ends are melted to a point for easier threading thru handle and rope rotor

5) install the rope (with the handle installed on one end) thru the recoil housing and towards the rope rotor.

6) with the rotor free of tension, route the rope from the groove toward center and up thru the hole. Tie a knot in the end of the rope, leaving a 3/8" tail free.

7) wind the rotor in the direction of what the rope would pull (this will tighten the spring) until the spring is completely wound. remove 1/2 to 1 revolution, and then allow rope to wind onto the rotor until all rope is wound.

8) Pull the rope several times to position rope properly into rotor.
*note : there should be NO droop in the handle after released
If droop is evident, wind the rotor and rope 1 revolution tighter so there is no droop of handle when released

9) when unit is functioning proplerly, re-install housing onto unit

Why will the Pull cord not retract?


I am not sure what your pull rope is on..but most are wound in a spring loaded housing on top of the motor.it may be bound up and not allowing the spring to rewind the rope..if you are mechanically inclined..you can get at the housing by removing the cover where the rope goes in..and do some adjusting..or If broken the complete winding device can be replaced and the cover replaced..good luck

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.

Rope broke


Starter rope is sold at home centers like Lowes and Homedepot. It is important to buy the same thickness of rope so that an ample amount will fit into rewind spool(starter rope is sold by size from 3.5 to 6.5) . Remove the starter cover /fan cover if the starter is riveted to fan cover (or just remove the pull rewind if bolted on). With cover removed, notice how the rope enters thru bushing and ties onto spool. Visualize in which direction the spool turns when you pull the rope. This is the direction that you will be winding the spool. Fish out the old rope and wind the spool in the direction mentioned above. The spool will get tighter as you wind. When the spool will not wind another turn, back-off one turn and align hole in spool to bushing on cover. Insert rope thru bushing into hole and tie knot (any knot that will not obstruct motor parts). At this point allow the rewind to take-in the rope to stop at handle. Test your work. The rope will break if you try to start the washer under load. Press trigger on wand to release pressure. Also the rope is stressed when the operator has a very long strong arm and pulls out the rope to bottom out at the knot. Good luck with your repair

The pull string broke how. how do i put the new one on?


Go to a hardware store and ask them if they have ant bulk pull starter rope. Buy about 3 feet or so of the small stuff (it is only 30 or 40 cents a foot, cheaper that the kits) Remove the motor cover with the pull start and turn it so you can see the wheel inside. Remove the knot that held the old rope in the handle and then cut the knot on the starter wheel and pull out the tag left in there.
Now the fun part. The wheel is spring loaded and the spring has no tension on it after the rope broke. Wind it up like a clock spring until it is tight then back off until the holes where the cord goes line up. Stick a small screw driver, nail, ect in the slot to keep it from unwinding . Do not tie the handle to the cord yet. Slide the new cord through the hole in the cover and wheel and then tie a knot in the cord and pull it snug in the wheel. Hold the rope and remove the pin and let the cord slowly wind itself up. Run the cord through the hole in the handle, Adjust to the length of pull you want and tie another knot.
Reinstall the motor cover (if it binds and wont go on, pull the rope just a little bit to line up the crank with starter wheel and it will slide down.)

It sounds a bit windy but it really is a simple fix.

How to install pull rope on Craftsman 917.37717 lawn mower


First, this is best done with two people, unless you have 4 hands. Second, with rope pull cover off the mower and laying on table with rope pulley up so you can see it, remove all the old rope. Next, measure 8 foot of new rope.
Now, line up the holes where rope will go thru the cover and into pulley, now with someone holding the cover, rotate rope pulley 6 complete turns, now hold pulley there, while putting new rope thru the rope openings in rope pulley and outer cover. Tie knot on end by rope pulley and have who ever was holding cover and other end of rope, slowly release the rope so it rewinds, install rope handle and walla, your done. 5 minute job, depending on how much coffee you drink. Hope this helped you.

REPLACE PULL CORD


the part that's riveted to the motor isn't to come off. You need to take the flywheel cover off; that't the whole thing, and it's held on by 3 bolts. Once that's off, you can get to the nylon pulley. easiest way to do this, is to take the screw out of the center that holds the pulley in, gently lift the pulley out just enough to get a hold of the rope, thread it back through the hole, and put the pulley back in place. Then pull the rope all the way out, and hold the pulley once it's out. you can then either pull it out from the knot inside the retractor, or you can cut the knot off, and pull the rope out. now, you want to turn the pulley the same direction that the rope pulled it out, until it gets tight. Back it off enough that you line up the hole in the cover with the hole in the retractor where you knot the rope. push your new rope through, tie a knot in it, and take up the slack. now you can let go of the retractor, and let it pull the new rope in. when it's done, put the cover back on, measure out the new rope to end up at the holder on the handle, and cut it and put the handle on the rope.
