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?

My recoil starter won't pull out it is stuck


Just take the cover bolts for the pull cord off. Then see if it works. There are usually two cogs that engage into the shaft of the engine. These cogs push outward when you pull the cord, engaging the shaft of the engine.

The starter pull cord on my gas trimmer will not pull.


Hi Mark
Perhaps a bit late now.... Just spotted this so I imagine it's all fixed by now.
But for others with this sort of problem.
Assuming the pull cord is not broken, stuck or tangled. Switch off or short plug to ground, for safety then remove the spark plug to allow the engine compression to escape. You should be able to turn the engine over really easy with the pull rope, otherwise the engine might be seized or the rotary pull mechanism jammed.
Also... can the shaft to the string line be rotated as in the crankshaft of the engine.
Good Luck

If my generator shut off due to low lubricant will it reset automatically? If not is there a reset valve/button?


The pull cord is like a starter on a car (separate from the motor/engine). If the pull cord will not turn it could be because the motor/engine is seized.

Engine doesn't turn over pull cord stuck


remove the starter assembly and see if it is the recoil or engine. if by removing the recoil it recoils the cord then it is most likely a seized engine but pull the rope a few times with the assembly in your hand to check it then try turning the flywheel by hand and see what happens

Yamaha 4HP outboard - cannot pull starter cord - jammed.


Engine or gearcase seized...
Remove the recoil starter ( 3 bolts and the startingear link)
If you can turn the flywheel slightly: Gearcase seized
If you can't turn the flywheel at all: Engine seized.
In both cases: If you can't disassemble and have the job done yourself, forget that motor...

The pull string will not pull out to start the


Remove the starter mechanism from the saw and try to turn the flywheel--it should turn freely except when the piston is rising against compression. If ok, pull the starter cord and watch for twisted cord or a damaged/split spool. Try to turn the spool CW by hand to see if it is bound up by something. Was the starter cord just replaced? If so, maybe the return spring was over-wound and can't be turned further. Hope this helps!

Pull start won't pull, seems stuck.


When you pull the cord it will turn the blade. Therfore if the blade is stuck or clogged with clippings the starter cord will seem stuck. In addition, the throttle on the handgrip need to be fully depressed for the starter cord to work. Last, some mowers have a saftey which lock the starter if the wheels are engaged. Hope this helps.
