I just tried starting my lawnmower (Lawnboy EasyMulch) after it had been sitting in my garage all winter. I pulled it out, cleaned it off (a lot of oil had spilled out), and gave it a basic maintenance (nothing fancy, just what I always do every spring):
- Change oil
- Add gas
- Change spark plug
- Change air filter
- Scrape off any grass that is caked on to the blade or around the chamber where the blade spins in
I went to give it a start and the cord will not pull. It won't even budge. When I flip it on its side I am able to wiggle the blade back and forth a little bit, but not able to spin it. Any ideas as to what is going on, or how to diagnose? Again, I scraped off a small amount of hardened grass clipping from underneath the mower, but there's nothing that is blocking the blade from spinning...
Thanks in advance!
