Just put together new mower...hard work allright..since I am a
seamtress.....It started up for a bit then shut off retried to start
it..but the pull rope won,t budge..any suggestions from the
experienced?? grass is growing every minute..thanks
Your question is bit general! rather like saying the "The thread pulled
out'" without giving any other info about the type of material, the type of
thread, whether it's hand or machine sewn etc,. etc.?
You mention that it is a new mower. Got the instructions?
Assuming it s a Briggs and Stratton or similar four (4) stroke. Did you
check the oil in the sump using the screw in dipstick and/or how much oil
did you put in the crankcase? It sometimes hard to read the oil level
accurately on those screw in dip-sticks.
Assuming it is some form of two stroke, did you mix the fuel and oil in
approximately 40 to 1 proportions (or as specified in the instructions)?
Post some more details and helpful people here may be able to help.
BTW if you have followed the instructions for operation fully and correctly
and it failed, not due to anything you have neglected, it may be under
Although the fact that you had to assemble it sort of suggests that it might
have been shipped 'dry' and require a) proper assembly and b) The addition
of engine oil (just like any car).
Good luck and post again. Terry.
Did you put oil in, if you didnt you have no warranty. Turn it over and
try to force the blade to move , put oil in and return it. If you cant
get it to move and it had no oil you will be paying for a new one. If
it had oil remove the plug and see if it locked from flooding.
