Pull cord jammed/locked

Hi,

I have a 6.HP Yard Machine. I have been using it for a while and now suddenly, its pull-cord is jammed. It almost seems like locked. It comes out around a foot. Anything I can check or do to fix it.

Thanks for your help.
Abhi

Can you post some more details such as what type of machine (mower, snowblower etc) possibly the model,type and serial number off the motor and most importantly what happened to cause this problem or what happened before the problem occured. As many details as you can give will help us in trying to identify your dilemma.

Hello Abhi!

Details would be good.

Is it full of oil? Will the engine turn by moving the blade? Is the blade brake cable disengaging the brake? Was the mower turned on it's side?
