I had the problem of the cord coming out slightly then stop.
The most likely candidate is you are low on oil and the engine seized up. Make sure you have the proper amount of oil. Remove the spark plug, then take a rubber mallot and gently knock the mower blade (counterclockwise) until it starts turning. Continue this process until you can move the mower blade by hand. Once the mower blade turns freely then the cord will be able to be pulled. I found that these Toros use quite a bit of oil especially if you are cutting a large lawn. Check the oil level before each mow to make sure you are not low.

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.

What is wrong with the toro push mower pull cord if it will not pull out?


I would say check the bolts that hold down the pull cord they are the same thread as the cover bolts but the cover bolts are a tad longer and if used on the pull cord housing they stick down to far and hit the fan blades on the magneto and it will not rotate

10 year old Toro 2017 lawnmower, suddenly stopped while cutting grass. Oil quite low. Cannot pull cord more l than few inches.


When you pull the cord does it hit a hard stop and not go any further or does it get really difficult?

pull your spark plug and see if it will pull then, if so then it is hydro locked with fuel which can be caused y a bad fuel cap, not venting or a stuck open needle in carb causing gas to flood cylinder

Stuck pull cord on Toro 6.5 self-propelled mower


1) Common problem when a mower sits for several weeks at a time between mowing;
check for extra grass debris to be glogged between the blade and the mower shell.

2) If the mower has a 'bail' or 'zone' control handle;
this releases a brake mechanism on the flywheel to allow it to rotate, and after it is running, releasing the lever will 'kill' the engine.

NOTE* when transporting a push mower in the trunk of a car, try to keep the mower as level as possible.

*extra note when mower has been transported in the back of a car;
sometimes the mower is placed in a trunk at such a severe angle that the oil from the crankcase is forced around the rings and sits on top of the piston so that when you try to pull the rope you have a 'hydra' lock. (that is when a liquid is between the piston and the spark plug) You cannot compress a liquid, so the rope appears stuck.

If this happens, remove the spark plug (make sure the loose plug wire is fastened away from any combustable that comes out of the spark plug hole *** AND THERE WILL BE A HUGE STREAM OF OIL AND GASOLINE, SO BE PREPARED TO CLEAN UP A MESS ***
pull as normal until fluid is dispelled from internal engine
clean or replace the spark plug
a few more pulls (no choke required) and you are up and going

Drive doesn't disconnect when pulling the mower backwards...


Try letting go of the self-propelled lever a couple of feet prior to stopping, then try pulling back. Also, I had a Lawnboy that did this. There was a flap on the back of the mower that would curl up under the deck and actually push the transmission into gear when I pulled it backwards.

Toro self propelled 22 inch recycler lawn mower start pull cord is "stuck"


Casey,

My son just bought a new Toro self propelled 22" recycler and has had problems on two different occasions. The mower just bogs down to a stop and when he tried to pull the starter cord, it was very VERY difficult to pull. At first I thought the engine had seized up for some reason (no oil?), but we found the problem.

First, disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug (to avoid the engine starting); tip the mower on its side and check very carefully the pulley and transmission belt. In his case, a piece of wood had gotten stuck between the belt and the pulley. Removing it fixed the problem (now he mows a little higher so as not to get so close to any debris). (We did have one further problem after that - the engine would not start - not even fire. After pulling and pulling, checking for gas, and checking that the air filter was cleean, we decided to check if the cylinder was flooded - we removed the spark plug, wiped and dried if off, and replaced it. It started right away.)

This belt 'n pulley arrangement isn't the best idea, if you ask me.

Good luck.

Cannot pull the cord more than 6 inches to start Toro lawn mower.


Hi Patti, If you can not pull the cord more that what you said, try removing the spark plug and see if that makes a difference, if not, leave the spark plug out to prevent accidental starting, raise up the front of the mower and see if you can turn the blade if not...it only gets worse from there. If you can't turn the blade from under the mower, the engine is more that likely seized up, sorry
