MTD 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.

Found out that after unboxing the mower you have to pull the handle out 8 inches to a second set of holes for the T-bolts near the frame. Up under the frame of the mower the handles go down and block the blade from turning.

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

Hi there. Various countries sell the machine with various lengths of power cords. Normally 30meters, but have seen some machines sold with 10 meter cords. I guess it all depends on your yard size, and if you will reach the furthest point with the cord. Hope this helps

My MTD walk behind lawn mower won't start. There's gas and spark (I think---when I looked at spark plug, it was pretty dirty and had a lot of dark greasy residue on it so I cleaned it off, but it still...


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.
