fix my Lawn Mower Starter myself !!!


Made a silly mistake, start the mover, the starting line string fall onto the ground... let the mower mow on top of it, break the string and the plastic thing...etc...

I was juggling whether take it to repair or DIY.... open it up... find it so messy... as the spring pop out.... kind of lost hope of DIY... then presistance pay.... finally get it done.... I am kind of a Mower starter expert now... well... at least for my model...


not only did I save hundred or so dollars.... satisfaction is priceless....

now anyone has problem with the mower starter... let me know...

If you are hurting for something to do... I have a Sears pressure washer that you could have a ball with.

Post a schematic; the cranking circuit can't be too complicated.
