Question and Answers

Q:

pulley rewtnd starter spring

A:

The pull starters on mowers can sometimes be difficult to operate and even more difficult to repair. It would help the expert provide the kind of information needed if you could add a bit more detail of what kind of help is needed. I did attach the owner's manual and the parts diagrams and parts list from Sears Parts Direct if needed. Both links are below. Just click reply to add any additional information.

Give THIS VIDEO a watch to see how to wind the spring up on the starter. Then watch THIS VIDEO to see how to wind the cord up. Between these 2 videos I feel pretty sure that you will get the starter back in working order.

If you have any further questions please let me know.

I can't get the 2 halves of the new drive kit apart. I've tried running a putty knife between the halves and prying it a bit, but no luck. Feels like something is going to crack.

Got it apart. You have to force it and hope for the best. Aside from a few small plastic shavings, everything is intact. This part should be assembled with 2 small screws instead of the snap together design.

Thank you for your question.

I know it can be difficult to install the control head. When you look on the side of the control, there are holes that you can insert a flat blade screwdriver in and pry the locking tab to open the control. Open the control slowly so that you and see the spring connections. Then open it all the way. Make the cable connection and reassemble the control. I am sorry I do not have any images that show how it comes apart.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired by a Sears technician. Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for using Manage my life.
