The spark arrestor is a small screen that prevents the engine from emitting sparks. Over time, the spark arrestor can become clogged with soot. If the spark arrestor is clogged, the engine may stall. To unclog the spark arrestor, remove it and clean it with a wire brush.
Sometimes, when your starter rope will not retract into your leaf blower, it can be because it is jammed between the pulley and the housing, or it is wrapped around the hub. In this case, you will often be able to fix the symptom by simply opening the machine and untangling or removing the rope from where it is stuck.

After my daughter mowed awhile when i went out the pull cord was stuck and i can’t start it
ANSWER : The drive shaft probably just needs to be lubricated. When you pull on the pull cord it turns the blade, so if the shaft that the blade is attached to won’t turn, the cord won’t pull.

If you turn your mower over and look at the shaft that runs up into the mower from the center of the blade, you can squirt some oil up into where the shaft disappears inside the body of the mower. Use a generous amount, and then turn the blade by hand (carefully so you don’t cut yourself!) and squirt some more oil. The blade should get easier to turn, and once it’s as easy as you think it’s going to get, try pulling on the cord and it should pull with no problem.

I have a poulan pro self propelled lawn mower that won’t start. It ran fine this morning, but after I took a break and went back outside to finish mowing, it wouldn’t start. It sounds like it won’t ”catch” when you pull the starter rope. Any suggestions?
ANSWER : You need to check a few things. The spark first, you need to check if it is running correctly, does it have spark, by doing this: take out the spark, put it against a metal surface and pull the pull start if it spark, your good if not you need a new spark plug. Clean out your airfiilter it migth help too.
