Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
Have you checked under the machine to make sure that there is nothing lodged in the blade that would keep it from turning?
Can you pull the rope at all? One other thing that you could check is the engine control cable to make sure that it is pulling the brake control off on the engine, if it is not then the engine would be really hard to pull and the electric start would not work.
