Hi! How do I replace a pull string on a lawn mower? It's a Murray. I have taken the cover off and re-wrapped it several times, but when I pull it, it doesn't start and won't pull the string back in....

Hope this makes sense and any help you can give is appreciated!

Sometimes, if the return spring isn't broken, shooting a solvent like WD-40 into the rewind mechanism will loosen things up a bit.

If that doesn't work, I've noticed that lawn tool retailers (like Home Depot, Lowe's, etc.) sell replacement rewind starter kits for various mower brands (Murray among them), at a nominal cost. Might be the easiest way out. Take Care.
