Hi nd erl;come to FixYa. I am Kelly
You most likely have some corrosion on the cylinder walls or crank shaft / rod end bearing.
Remove the spark plug and spray a generous amount of WD 40 into the spark plug hole. Let it sit over night. The next day try pulling the recoil. If that does not work you will have to remove the air shroud, grasp the flywheel NOT by the fins and rock it back and forth until the engine turns freely. After it rotates freely... dump out the WD 40. Allow several minutes with the cylinder head inverted for the WD 40 to drain. Then attempt a start after re-installing the spark plug. If the WD 40 keeps fouling the plug you can very carefully wash the cylinder with gas... just stay away from any sparks or flames and make sure to wipe up / dry off any residual fuel.

Since you did not include a model number this a generic response that should get you going again. If there is a problem with the re-coil... again I need the model number please.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Pull cord wont recoil homelite xl 12


You will need to take the cover off to get to the recoil, then remove the pull handle do not let go of the cord! Now ease the cord into the reciol but do not let the cord go, now while holding the cord and the recoil spool rotate the spool 1 revelution clockwise, send the cord back up through the case hole and through the pull handle tie the knot in the cord and replace the case if this still isn't enough repeat the process.Dennis

Pull cord wont spin the motor


The engagement "dog" is probably rusted in place. Try spraying WD 40 on the recoil mechanism as you pull the starter cord

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.

Pull cord broke on my craftsman gas push edger. I replaced cord but when I pull cord..It wont rewind but I can hear it trying to start


It sounds like you did not properly rewind the spring that is behind the spool that the cord would around, that spring is what rewinds the cord after pulling the cord.
