Was running stopped. Starting pull cord only moves a couple of inches then feels like engine gets locked.


indications are that the ring has seized or broken in the cylinder

check the oil/fuel ratio in use as it may be a bit on the lack of oil side

Unable to pull starter cord nu more then 4 inches I have removed the spark plug and released the pressure still the same what more can I do??


Dear Sir,
I understand that the engine seem jammed. Removing the spark plug was a good idea. This indicates that the engine cannot turn.
The only reason I think this happens, because the pump is jammed.
If with some method you separate the engine from the pump, you will for sure find out if the pump is jammed. Also you can release the pressure from the pump, if you have access to its valves and remove them. So trying to pull the cord with no load from the pump is the next thing you should do, with a few methods I have explained.
Regards,
M.G.

The pull cord is locked, can only pull out 5 inches....why?


Could be motor locked up or cord caught in the rewinding mechanism. Remove top engine cover and see if cord pulls now. If not then in winder. If it does see if you can turn the motor over by hand with cover off. If not maybe engine locked up. Did the engine run low on oil? if so when motor cooled, things may have locked up. Try removing spark plug, and light oil to cylinder and let soak.Turn engine with wrench.

Recoil will not pull. The walk behind MTD,Yard Machine mower, a B&S 500 Series stalled while mowing. I went to restart and pull cord will not pull more then a few inches. How do I go about the fix?


If all the safety gear is working on the mower; Possibly sounds like you let it run low on oil and the engine is locked up.
Which would mean a new mower.

Motor seems to be locked up!!!!!!!!


It may be your engine, but it may also be the water pressure. Try this: Hold the trigger down while pulling the recoil starter. This acts as an unloader for the pressure washer, and may allow the engine to turn over. There is also an oil level in the pump as well as the engine. Check both levels.
Just a thought, but I've been there. Best regards, W/D

Poulan 16" cannot start...pull cord locked up


Remove the cover, should be 4 screws that holds it on once the 4 screws are loosened the rope could rewind on its own. If not check to make sure the spring is not broken.
