The pull cord on our wood chipper is locked and it can't be pulled out to start. The cord is not screwed up but the mechanism inside will not turn? ANy suggestions? Having the same problem with our roto tiller. Thanks.
Need to check the exploded parts diagram to see what the next step would be.
Do you have a Tecumseh repair facility near you? Sometimes the techs are willing to provide some information that would help a DIYer solve the problem, and if not, they might give an estimate of what it would cost to fix.
Actually Steve really took it apart even not knowing what he was doing and was able to get some pliers to the blades and there was a bit of wood in there blocking the blades from moving. Arduous task getting it out but when he did it started right up again. So in the future if it happens we'll remember to check the blades.
