It's the petrol in the chamber creating hydraulic pressure..

Loosen the spark plug a few turn to remove to pressure then tighten back up and have another go.

Suddenly cut out whilst mowing the lawn. now wont start, pull cord stiff to pull


Something just like this happened earlier this year with my pressure washer. This is what I did to fix it and now it runs great. Check the oil. If it's black or feels the least bit tacky, drain a pint or two of the oil out and re-add that amount of Marvel Mystery Oil. Now, attempt to pull the cord all the way out, but slowly at first. It should get easier to pull after about 5 pulls. If the mower restarts, let it run for 10 minutes until the Mystery Oil is hot and has cycled around inside the engine. Then drain that oil and refill it with a quality brand of oil. To top it off, either clean or replace the air filter, and put a shotglass of Lucas gas & injector cleaner into the mower's full gas tank. I also do this to my lawnmower and weedeater. It works wonders. BTW...If you're unable to turn the engine over by pulling the cord, remove the spark plug and tilt the mower up, so you can turn the blade easily by hand (use gloves). BUT FIRST MAKE SURE THAT SPARK PLUG IS REMOVED. REMEMBER... SAFETY FIRST! Let us know if this helped you any.

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.

I hit a stump and now it want start. It fired a couple of times and made a loud "clunk"!


Remove the plug wire and tip the mower on it's side. Pull the starter cord over and see if the blade wobbles. If so, check to see if it's the blade or if it's the crankshaft that is bent. If the blade doesn't turn while you pull the cord, it's most likely a broken crank or connecting rod which may be the cause of your "clunk".

Pull start cord sticks, catches on something internally and I can't start the mower...brand new...


Make sure you hold the throttle bar firmly against the handle. If that doesn't work the cable from the throttle to the engine may need adjusting. The only other cause would be a damaged crank shaft.
