Q:

Press down operator presence control bar, starter cable doesn't pull back, can't start mower 917376152 Craftsman Mower

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the cable on the mower. I know how frustrating that is.

It sounds like the cable doesn't want to move within the sheathing. Check to make sure the cable isn't being pinched down by the lower handle. Sometimes the cable can also rust within the sheathing and cause it to bind and not want to move, or a piece of the cable can split and restrict movement. Ensure the connections and routing to make sure there are not pinches or binds, and if all looks good, you'll likely need a replacement cable. 

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Thank you. I received the part overnight delivery today (6/17). Knowing how I replaced the throttle cable a year or two ago, I figured it was due to be replaced (mower 8 years old). I easily installed it, pulled back the handle, and it moved freely (It also helped that I sprayed some Liquid Wrench Penetrating Oil on the springs and moving parts). I started the mower, and it had been some time since the cable moved this well. Thanks again to Sears Parts Direct! It reinforces my belief in continuing to buy Craftsman/Kenmore products.

Q:

Lawnmower makes clicking noise. When trying to start it, the starter rope is jerked violently from my hand. 917.376152

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com. I will be more then happy to assist you. Normally when the rope gets jerked out of you hand usually indicates an ignition timing issue. This can happen if the blade was to hit something to cause the engine to stop to quickly, like a large rock, pipe curb etc. When the moving blade strikes a hard enough object it can cause the fly wheel key to shear. When the flywheel is no longer sitting on the crankshaft at the proper degree the ignition timing will be out of sync with with 4 strokes of the engine operation. Basically speaking, the spark plug is firing before the piston is reaching the top dead center of the stroke causing the piston to slam back down and jerk the rope out.
