Please note ! patients is required with this one !
Hi, remove the recoil top cover with the recoil attached. ( DO NOT TAKE OUT THE SPOOL OR YOU COULD HAVE THE SPRING GET YOU IN THE FACE)
Remove old cord.
With your new cord lace it through the recoil spool centre hole with a knott on the end.
now depending if the recoil winds in clockwise when spool is facing you wind the cord around it a few times by turning the spool clockwise,
Then put the cord in the notch at the side of the spool & wind the spool & cord anticlockwise about twice the number of turns of cord (this should tension the spring).
Take your end of the cord & lace it through the hole outside of the casing & fit you pull handle.
But hold the spool firmly untill the cord has a good knott on the end of it.
(Sometimes I see the guys here putting a loop in the cord to stop it sliping in while they tie a knott on the end of the handle.)

You have water in in the carborator, I'll bet. I had this same problem. Here's what I did.

I emptied the gas tank, put in a new spark plug, changed the oil and then unscrewed thd big nut on the bottom of the float container (attached to the carborator near the rubber gas injector button) and emptied and cleand the float container. Then i put it all back together, pulled the cord and the same thing happened, but this time i could keep it going by having my daughter constantly pushing the rubber gas injector button. After it had run for a minute with this constant pushing of the button, all the water was gone from everytwhere and it worked.

Hi, your carberator is plugged up. Take it off and do a good cleaning job on it and be sure the main jet is open.

my experience with revving up and down like you describe is usually caused by fuel starvation..if it still has good compression and spark when it quits then it must have a fuel restriction.....usually when this only happens after using it a bit its because of a faulty fuel vent...try leaving the cap loose and if it doesnt act up loose go buy a new cap

I can not keep my mower running. It ran great before winter, now it acts like it is going to run.. but dies. I have new gas in it, new oil, and changed the spark plug. What else could it be? craftsman...


Hi, I would suggest taking the main jet out of the carberator and cleaning it with carb cleaner. If you did'nt drain the gas out of it before winter, the gas has gotten old and has plugged up your main jet in the carberator. It could also be that the needle has got **** on it and is stuck, I'd clean that also. Your problem is all in the carberator, and old stale gas sitting in it all winter is the reason.
