Question about Poulan "Poulan" Push Mower
The pull cord will not budge. Any ideas?
First. Remove the spark plug and see if any oil runs out.
Second, If the cylinder isnt flooded with fuel or oil. Make sure your blade brake is releasing properly.
Third. Remove the pull starter cover and consider putting a very light spray of WD40 onto the spring housing from the underside and work it around.....the recoil spring may just be rusted solid and a little lube and maybe a tap or too with a rubber mallet might just break it free.
I have seen all three conditions turn an otherwise working mower into something that wouldnt budge.
Good luck and be careful. Dont pull out the recoil spring as it under tension and could spring out and bite you or at least make a mess.
