Toro Recycler 6.5HP recoil start cord pulls hard & snaps back in

Recoil Start cord pulls hard & sometimes snaps back in so hard it about pulls your arm off (without mower starting)
6.5HP 2006 Toro Recycler 22'' gas engione self-propelled, front wheel drive
Sometimes I can start it OK (with effort). Other times I can pull & pull and seems to pull harder the more times I try. Seems like I am pulling against something pulling right back
I might hear a slight cough from the engine Eventually it feels like something ''breaks free'' and then it pulls easier

This sounds like you have bent the shaft. This happens when you run over something hard. Hope this will help.

Several things can be happening here.

If you have oil in the air cleaner, chances are the mower was tipped over on the Carb side. This will spill oil from the breather right into the air cleaner. The it will go right into the engine. You can check this buy removing the spark plug and try pulling it over. Be prepared to clean up a mess. If there is oil in the carb, clean it out and replace the air cleaner. If it foam type, you can wash it with hot soapy water, dry it with a paper towel. Take some starter spray and spray it in the spark plug hole, pull it over several times, this will get most of the oil out of the piston head. Make sure the spark plug is not hooked to the spark plug while doing this.

Also, you may have a damaged key. It is located under the flywheel. You will need a flywheel puller, after removal, check the flywheel key, if it damaged in any way, replace it. The flywheel key is what keep the timing correct. It is meant to sheer if you hit something hard, to help protect the rest of the engine.

Check your air filter if it clogged the compression has no where to go and becomes harder to pull. This happen to me when th oil was over filled and clogged the airfilter. I hope this helps

How to fix stuck pull cord of a 22 inch Toro Recycler lawn mower


Is the engine seized?. Try turning the blade and if it won't turn then you have a seized engine. If that is ok your recoil has a stuck part possibly something has broken off inside. If it's an older model try shooting WD40 inside the recoil as it could be rusty.

If you trying to pull the starter to start it doesn't pull out


Hi, sometimes the recoil rope gets a little tangled inside the housing if the cord is allowed to snap back after pulling. You need to undo the screws that hold the recoil on the motor and inspect the rope inside. If you cannot pull the rope freely while it is detached, then the problem lies with the recoil. In this case try to find the tangled cord and undo it. Test that the coil works before reinstalling it. It should work fine. If you pull the recoil while it's detached and it moves freely, then the problem lies with the engine itself. This would indicate a seizure and requires a complete tear-down and rebuild. Good luck.

I have a Toro Personal Pace Recycler mower with a 6.0 hp GTS engine. I need help on replacing the pull cord.


It's not that hard. I've never done it on my Toro GTS 5.0, but I have done it on a Briggs and it's pretty much the same. Start by removing the 10mm bolts around the perimeter of the engine shroud. DON'T remove the 4 top bolts on the recoil housing. You might have to remove the fuel tank first. Drain it, then loosen the 2 8mm screws and lift it straight up. No need to disconnect the fuel line, just set the tank aside. After removing the 10mm bolts, the shroud should lift right off. Flip it over and you will see the recoil pulley. Remove any leftover cord from the pulley. Now you need to wind the pulley against the spring in the direction it goes when you pull the cord. It might wind 2 or 3 revolutions but don't overdo it. Now you will need some sort of clamp to hold the pulley in place as you line up the slot in the pulley with the opening where the handle goes. Next, feed the new cord through the opening and into the pulley and tie a knot to keep it from slipping out. Carefully release the clamp and let the pulley slowly wind the new cord onto itself. Finally, attach the handle on the other end of the cord and test it. If you can pull the handle and the cord comes out and it retracts normally, re-install the shroud and tank.

I have a 22in recycler lawn mover. the recoil


There is a safety brake on the handle that MUST be held down to start the engine. You must squeeze the safety agaist the handle to operate the mower. If not you will not be able to start the mower.

If your holding the safety mechanism and it is still locked then either the cable has become detached or... borken. Check to make sure the cable is connected to the safety mechanism. If it is and it still does not release then you should in all honesty contact Toro for the nearest warranty repair center.

Thanks for using FixYa.

We have a brand new toro 22 in Recycler lawn mower that we have used 2x and today it stopped working. We are unable to pull the start cord more than 2 inches out so obviously we cant start it. Help.


Check the oil ... does it have oil in it?

Disconnect the spark plug, tip the mower up, can you move the blade? If the blade will not move, the motor may be seized.

No oil = ruined motor ...

If the blade will move freely, there is a recoil starter problem.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

Recoil rope won't recoil!


-In bnjays case the rope was broken. Sometimes the rope retracks partially or slowly because the surface that the spring edges rub against when retracting the cord, are badly rusted. Disassemble and wire brush the rust off, or leave assembled and spray in thru holes in the pull start with WD40.Avoid getting WD40 on the rope.
