First of all you should made sure that there isn't any piece of string or rope wrapped around the blade (happens a lot if you use your yard and have kids :-)).

If that doesn't fix it, I guess the bearings on the top part of the shaft (the one that the pull start turns) is in need of some oil. Simply remove the bolts that attach the entire top cover, including the pull start. The top part of the shaft should have a square metal cap that has a tiny hole for oiling the bearings. Drop in some oil!

I sure that this will help :-)
Good Luck!

Can i fix small electric motor


Most electric motor problems are caused by the bearings failing. Before that happens it may get very stiff but stil turn. With the power off, and the blade still attached, try turning the blade at least half a turn. Is that possible? Any noises as you turn? Is it very stiff or fairly free? If you turn it several times you may find that putting it upright and connecting the power it may start turning again.
Let me know what you find.

I was mowing the lawn, and I ran over a dirt *****. Now the engine will not start. It also sounds like something is loose inside. I hear a few clunking sounds when I pull the cord. Do I need to take...


Yoy can try tightening the blade bolt. i know it sounds funny but if the blade bolt is loose (or even alittle loose) the blade balance throws off the engine balance and can cause it to
1 not start
2 make loud clunking noises when trying to start
3 make a real racket if it does start

try flipping the lawn mower over and just tighten the bolt that holds the blade in place.
That should fix your problem.

Lawn mower wont start. changed air filter, spark


Does it turn over? If it does, what happens? Does it sound normal when its cranking? I need more information to help. Is it a push mower or riding mower? Does it start by key or pull start?

My lawn mower doesn't start and when it does, smoke comes out of exhaust


you may need to change the oil and/or empty the old gas and replace it with new.

This thing happens when you don't take care of your lawn mower for too long.
