My B&S cord will not pull out. It is not stuck. Help

If the recoil starter was pulling free after you took it off, Are you sure the engine isn't seized?

    • 1 Locate the red button on the top of the handlebars. This is called the "kill switch." When you pull it up the engine can run; when you push it down, the engine will shut off immediately.
    • 2 Pull the kill switch up.
    • 3 Turn the key to the "on" position.
    • 4 Make certain the cord running from the key is attached to the steering column. This device acts in the same manner as the kill switch - the engine will run only when it is secured.
    • 5 Pull the start cord, which looks like an enlarged lawnmower pull-cord and is generally found on the right side of the machine.
    • 6 Listen to the engine - if it starts, let it get going slowly . If it "pops" but does not continue to run, try pulling the start cord a few more times. If you do not hear the engine turn over at all, proceed to the next step.
    • 7 Find the pull tab under the right side of the handlebars. This is called the choke - it often has a circle with a diagonal line through it. The choke helps to start an engine when the weather is very cold or the machine hasn't been used in a while. When using the choke, try leaving it on only long enough to hear the engine fire a couple times, then return it to the "off" position. A choke left on too long can flood the engine.
    • 8 Place the choke in the vertical position - this is called the half choke position. Pull the start cord several times. If the engine fires up, place the choke back down to its original position and let it slowly warm up. If the engine still has trouble starting, proceed to the next step.
    • 9 Pull the choke 180 degrees from its original position - this is called the full choke. Pull the start cord until the engine sputters a couple times.
    • 10 Replace the choke to the original off position and continue to pull the cord. The engine should fire up and settle into a steady hum, ready for fun in the snow.

Pull on cord for weed eater y 28 yard machine hard to pull how do i repair it

Hmmmmm. The question is why does it pull hard to begin with? Did the pull cord get wrapped around the pulley in an awkward manner or is the machine seized up? If it's not to difficult, pull the muffler off the machine and look at the piston. If it looks scored (lines up and down the piston through the rings) It's shot and probably not worth fixing. But, If everything looks good, then I'd pull the starter assembly off and see if there's something going on there that's doesn't look right.

The pull cord will not pull to start the trimmer

i had a problem like this on an old mower, the cord had become tangled inside the unit, it limited the pull of the cable so it would now spin the engine enough to start. it is not too difficult to to pop the top off the unit and check for tangles or knots

I have a yard machines 31cc y28 17'' how do I fix the pull string it is pulled out fully

Take the top cover off, You should then see 4 bolts around the engine cover, take these out and the cord head will come of,Depending on where the cord broke is the question of using the same cord, But if you're getting a new cord you will need to thread the cord into the eye for the cord, Tie a knot to prevent it pulling apart. then tie your handle on. After this you will wind the cord up tight on the pulley and a screw driver holding the pulley from moving while you put the cord and cap back on the engine, You can then start back installing the bolts and the other cover..

The source of your refurbished printer either did not refurbish it completely or failed to test operation before turning it over to you. From your description, it may have been delivered wired for the wrong input voltage.
