Toro self propelled 22 inch recycler lawn mower start pull cord is "stuck"

I was mowing the lawn and the self propel just stopped working. I'm told this could be an easy fix, but of course there's nothing in the instruction manual. Any ideas? the start pull cord is stuck

Casey,

My son just bought a new Toro self propelled 22" recycler and has had problems on two different occasions. The mower just bogs down to a stop and when he tried to pull the starter cord, it was very VERY difficult to pull. At first I thought the engine had seized up for some reason (no oil?), but we found the problem.

First, disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug (to avoid the engine starting); tip the mower on its side and check very carefully the pulley and transmission belt. In his case, a piece of wood had gotten stuck between the belt and the pulley. Removing it fixed the problem (now he mows a little higher so as not to get so close to any debris). (We did have one further problem after that - the engine would not start - not even fire. After pulling and pulling, checking for gas, and checking that the air filter was cleean, we decided to check if the cylinder was flooded - we removed the spark plug, wiped and dried if off, and replaced it. It started right away.)

This belt 'n pulley arrangement isn't the best idea, if you ask me.

Good luck.

All i can think of off the top of my head is to check the gratefor anything blocking the fan. if there is, try go get it out, and see if mower will start. now about the self propel, the link to the engine is probably loose or broken, wherever it is. im not much for toro products. i prefer Ryobi, which i think you should get their model CS26 trimmer. it's a very good deal. low emissions, simple to use, and lightweight compared to many other trimmers.

Sounds like they need cleaning & oiling. Check that nothing is keeping it from moving. I have ran over string or cord before & got caught and wrapped around wheel.

Yes it is the transmission. A Mower shop will charge you about $225 to fix.. I order parts online and fixed mine for $90. Transmission consist of 3 gears which turns the rear wheels to self-propel.
