Hi,
This sounds like the engine is out of time.
Usually this happens when the blades hit something hard and shears a small aluminum"key" between the crank shaft and the flywheel.
This is reparable. The little key is less than a buck. A person needs some skills to remove the flywheel to replace the "key".

I have a brand new (purchased this past Thursday) Troy Bilt 6.75 Self Propelled mower. I made one pass this past Saturday and then the mower started to die and the completely quit running and the pull rope is locked up and will not budge a bit.

Any suggestions before I take this back? Thanks J.E.S.

The pull start cord will only move about 3-4 inches and then it stops and then cord stops, Troy built- Briggs/Statton 21 inch self-propel lawnmower.


The mower's drive shaft may need to be lubricated. If you turn the mower over and try to move the blade by hand (with the mower off, of course) does it move, or is it hard to move? If it's hard to move or it won't move at all, lubricate the shaft by squirting some WD-40, 3-In-1, or other lubricating oil onto the drive shaft where it meets the chassis of the mower. Squirt enough oil to cover the circumference of the drive shaft, then try to spin the blade again. It should at least spin a little bit now. Squirt some more oil and spin the blade again, until the blade spins easily. Then turn the mower back over and try to pull the start cord -- it should pull normally now.

How do I replace the pull cord on the Troy Built Mower model # 12AI867Q011 serial # 1E098KC0419


You have two options. look up your models starter assy. at a dealer like www.arcolawn.com and replace it as a whole or purchase the rope remove the starter, charge the spring by twisting it all the way tight, back it off one turn and install the new rope. Tie your knots and reinstall the starter.

Thank you

My troy built 210 6.75 hp mower self propelled mower doesnt pull


remove the front black plastic plate that is stamped self propelled and replace the wheel drive belt that attaches the engine pulley (above blade) to the transmission pulley (found under the cover). When you buy the belts, pick up two or three as I seem to go through a couple per season. Hopes this helps

Rope on mower won't pull.


due to the ethanol and additives in todays fuel it can also be your carborator. one of the intakes may be clogged and all gummed up.

ROPE ON MOWER WON'T PULL OUT


I agree, it sounds like the mower is fouled with foliage at the blade. Pull off the spark plug wire and tilt the mower on its side opposite of the carburetor, check the underside of the mower for impacted grass clippings.
