THE CORD IS JAMMED AND WONT RELEASE.

THE CORD IS JAMMED AND WON'T RELEASE.

Remove the spark plug and see if you can turn the engine. If this is on a pushmower, see if the blade will move. If engine rotates and rope is stuck,then the upper housing will need to be removed and the pull cord housing be repaired. What is the full model number of the engine? Example 123432-01230-B1
