Question and Answers

Q:

Pull String in Craftsman Walk Behind Mower model 917.379120 not getting any resistance.

A:

There is a lot to be said for electronic ignitions when the mower starts having starter rope problems. While you wait for the expert to review your model to respond, you might check the schematics at Sears Parts Direct. The exploded diagrams can be helpful.

A:

All that little piece is for is to keep the rope from pulling up into the starter if the handle breaks. You can likely grab the piece with some pliers and force it to move. Or you can cut it (not the rope) off with some heavy wire cutters and then tie a knot in the rope. There is also my personal option where you take the piece off the rope and move on with life. The reason I do this is because I have never, in my years, had a handle break off. Anytime the rope has broken it has done it on the other side of that little piece and I ended up having to remove the starter anyway to fix it.

Whichever way you approach this is fine and nothing bad will happen either way.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
