Fly Wheel Removal from an electric start lawn mower


Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the mower. If the flywheel on your engine does not have any holes, you can use a two-jaw puller to remove it. If you do not have a two-jaw puller, you can check with your local auto parts stores. They may have the tool to loan out. Once you get the puller hook one jaw on each side of the flywheel and tighten the bolt in the center. Just turn it until it is tight and hit the end of the bolt with a hammer. This should break it loose. If you cannot get a puller, you could use a pry bar and hammer. I have found a video that shows how to do this method. Click here to watch the video. Just be advised you run the risk of damaging the engine using this method.

I hope this is helpful.

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 .
