Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have a Troy-Bilt Briggs and Stratton 675 series lawn mower. The pull cord is stuck and will not move. I can lightly pull the cord repeatedly and the cord slowly allows me to pull more but if I release it to pull and start the mower it locks again. I am unable to start the mower because of this. As well, probably the result of it, the blade will not move. Any information you have that may assist in this matter will be greatly appreciated

Take the plug out and try to move the blade. If the motor won't rotate, the problem might be with the motor and the cord can't move because of it.

    Let me state this differently. The pull cord assembly released the motor once it is let go. Try removing the plug and turning the blade. If the blade does not move, the motor may be seized.
    The other thing you can try is remove the entire pull cord assembly and see if the blade moves. If the blade moves then, purchase a new recoil assembly and install it on the mower.

SOURCE: Hi I have a Briggs

If the wavy washer you are describing is a locking washer, then the order of replacement would be, blade, then plain washer, then wavy washer, then bolt.
Carefull examination of the blade may indicate further how it was originally fitted, good luck, hope this helps.

Where is drain plug for oil on Troy bilt Tb230


It does not have a drain plug. You can remove the dip stick and tilt the mower to pour out the oil, or you can use one of those hand pump syphon units to pump it out.

Pull cord wont pull,briggs 500 series


Pull the spark plug out and see if it isnt hydro locked. Someone might have overfilled the oil or the carb float may have stuck open and filled the intake with gas!

If the recoil is still stuck you can remove it from the mower and try it without any load on it. Still stuck? The unit might be rusted solid!
You can spray a little penetrating oil into it but be careful.....the oil will soak the pull cord which should be cleaned and degreased immediately following using the penetrating oil.

Always start by checking the spark plug. If you are getting spark and still not starting, it's probably a carburator problem.

Pull cord broken. After removing red hood and


You don't need to remove the rivets. There should be two metal tabs that bend over the nylon retractor, or it'll have a screw in the middle of the retractor pulley inside the cover. you bend those up a little, or remove the screw, remove the retractor, be careful, because that spring can be fun if it gets away from you, take the old rope out, put the retractor back in place, wind it back as far as you can, feed the rope in, tie the knot, and let it draw the rope in. Put everything back like you found it, and your pull rope if fixed.

I have a troy bilt mower with a briggs & stratton engine. How do I change the oil?


There should be a drain plug on the underside of the mower deck. Raise that side of deck, remove the plug and drain the oil. Replace the plug and add new oil. Hope this helped.
