lawnboy silverpro series recoil is not engaging every time

Hello everyone First post here. Need help.

I have a 10 year old lawnboy. Great mower. However the rewind is not catching every time. If I pull it a couple of times I can get it to catch. What is the fix? I know I cannot get by on luck for the rest of the season. Lots of leaves and stuff on the lawn to get cleaned up before any more snow comes

Any tips on where to look first?

Thank You for the help

Steve

Take the recoil starter off and see. It may just need the center retainer tightened. If it is a screw on type, it may be loose. If it is pressed in, it may need to be pressed a bit further in.
