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.

I borrowed my Brothers Tecumseh Yard Machine Push Mower to mow my lawn but the pull cord wont pull. Is there a saftey or something i dont know about ?


There is a little bar up by the handle that you have to pull back toward the handle, this is the dead man lever. When released it will stop the mower by grounding out the ignition coil and braking the engine.

If this is not the problem, then let me know.

I hope this helps.

MTD Yard Machine Model # 11A-084E029 Need help putting the pull cord assembly (coil, etc) back together. Standard repair books don't give enough detail. My pull cord broke, I bought just the cord, took...


Remove the recoil assembly from the mower, there are 3 machine screws.
Remove the old rope and get matching cord, make sure you get the correct diameter, usually 3/16 or 1/4 inch, and type, I believe it should be nylon braided. Do not cut the new cord.
Use a match to light the end of the cord and once it ignites, use an old rag to pull and form the end into a point.
Notice which way the pulley in the starter assembly rotates and hand spin it in that direction until it is fairly tight. Once it is tight, rotate it into a position such that you can push the pointed end of the cord from the outside into the hole in the housing of the starter and directly into the hole on the inner pulley. Tie a tight knot in the end of the rope inside the pulley.
Remove the clamp and let the rope get rewound on the pulley. Cut the cord, point this end and run it into the handle and knot it.

I have a Yard Machine Lawn mower by MTD it has a briggs and stratton engine. The pull cord pulls, to easily I might add, but will not start the lawn mower. It doesn't seem to engage the motor. What might...


If you think the rope pulls too easily the engine may not have enough compression. Consider doing a compression test or a leak-down test on the cylinder.

From what you describe it sounds like the line may be tangled, remove the rewind housing in order to inspect the line up close.
