Yard Machines 22'' mower, pull cord won't extend

I have a Yard Machines 22'' rotary walk behind mower. The pull cord will not pull to full extension to start the mower. It will pull out a little and then seems to get stuck. Any assistance would be appreciated.

The cord is more than likely wrapped around the pin holding the reel in place.
I have a 11A-54MC006 21-Inch 139cc MTD OHV and that was the issue when My pull cord was stuck. A bolt that holds the entire pull cord "mechanism" tight had loosened. read your manual or try a website on how to put it back together. once you take it all a part. Check back if I find a good site or video even. I'll let you know. You'll need a metric socket set to take it apart. 7m-11 or 12m. Good luck brosef.

Make sure you have fresh clean fuel in the mower. Has the mower been setting for a while? Make sure your air cleaner is not plugged. Try starting with fresh fuel and the air cleaner off. Let me know if the cord tries to pull back or you have hit anything with the mower blade recently.

Recoil will not pull. The walk behind MTD,Yard Machine mower, a B&S 500 Series stalled while mowing. I went to restart and pull cord will not pull more then a few inches. How do I go about the fix?


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.

usually theres just a few bolts to take off on the top, and the whole rip cord assembly will pull right out, allowing you to install the new one.

Change Oil


All lawn mower engines have a drain plug for draining the oil. Look for a square nut on the side of the engine
