How To Replace Lawn Mower Pull Cord

If you’re having trouble starting your lawn mower, it’s likely that the pull cord needs to be replaced. Replacing a lawn mower pull cord is a relatively easy task to do yourself, and it’s important that you do it correctly in order to avoid injury.

To replace the pull cord, you’ll need a few tools, including a pair of safety glasses, a screwdriver, needle-nose pliers, a new pull cord and a spark plug wrench. Once you have all of your supplies, you can begin the process.

First, make sure your lawn mower is unplugged and the spark plug wire is removed. Then, use your screwdriver to remove the screws that hold the starter housing in place. Once the screws are removed, carefully remove the starter housing and set it aside.

Next, locate the broken pull cord and remove it from the recoil pulley. You may need to use your needle-nose pliers to help you remove the cord. Then, take your new pull cord and thread it through the recoil pulley, making sure it’s securely attached.

Now it’s time to reattach the starter housing. To do this, use your spark plug wrench to loosen the nut that holds the housing in place. Once the nut is loosened, carefully slide the starter housing back into place and reattach the screws.

Finally, pull on the new pull cord and wrap it around the pulley a few times to ensure that it’s securely in place. You can now reattach the spark plug wire, plug in your lawn mower, and you’re ready to go.

Replacing a lawn mower pull cord is a fairly simple task that can be done in a few minutes. With the right tools, you can easily replace the cord yourself and get your lawn mower running again in no time.
