Replacing the mower starter cable

The mower’s starter cables break frequently. Received a great deal of abuse over the years, from frequent jerks to exposure to extreme weather. The starter cable wears out from being damp and damp and rubbing more components against the other grass. Replacing a mower starter cable is a relatively easy task to complete.

Buy a cable

When purchasing a new mower cord, be sure to purchase a cord that will fit your unit. Also, try and keep the same brand. This can be purchased at any local home improvement center.


Remove the pieces and parts

Removing the plastic casing from your lawnmower is fairly easy to accomplish. Depending on the model of your lawn mower, you will need to use a screwdriver to remove the bolts or a socket wrench to remove a nut and bolt. Once this is complete you can now remove your old cable from the pulley system

Fixing and winding

When connecting the new cable, be sure to wrap securely around the existing disk. You know that you have completed this correctly when you test the new cable. Probably pulling the cord several times. If it rewinds in place, you are successful!
