Question about Ryobi Garden

1 Answer

Our RYOBI battery is stuck in our lawn mower and we are unable to pull it out. We know how to get it out we have done it many times over the last two years. Any advice?

    This happened to me, and after trying for days to get it out, someone got it out for me with something called a mini pry bar. He told me to lightly grease the sides of the batteries with Vaseline to prevent it from happening again. I have and the batteries easily slide in and out. If this happens again, I'm going to get my own mini pry bar and get it out myself.

SOURCE: Cannot pull the cord more than 6 inches to start Toro lawn mower.

Hi Patti, If you can not pull the cord more that what you said, try removing the spark plug and see if that makes a difference, if not, leave the spark plug out to prevent accidental starting, raise up the front of the mower and see if you can turn the blade if only gets worse from there. If you can't turn the blade from under the mower, the engine is more that likely seized up, sorry

SOURCE: I want to replace my Power Wheels battery w/lawn mower battery.

If it is a 12v power wheels, a lawnmower battery will work. I have done it on model # 73690-9993. Make sure you mark the wires on the connector pos(+) and neg(-), should be White for + and Black for -. Then cut the wires and install ring terminals that will fit the lawnmower batt. I would remove the batt. to charge it. **** will on work with 12 volt Power Wheels.****

SOURCE: toro self propelled 22 inch recycler lawn mower start pull cord is "stuck"


My son just bought a new Toro self propelled 22" recycler and has had problems on two different occasions. The mower just bogs down to a stop and when he tried to pull the starter cord, it was very VERY difficult to pull. At first I thought the engine had seized up for some reason (no oil?), but we found the problem.

First, disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug (to avoid the engine starting); tip the mower on its side and check very carefully the pulley and transmission belt. In his case, a piece of wood had gotten stuck between the belt and the pulley. Removing it fixed the problem (now he mows a little higher so as not to get so close to any debris). (We did have one further problem after that - the engine would not start - not even fire. After pulling and pulling, checking for gas, and checking that the air filter was cleean, we decided to check if the cylinder was flooded - we removed the spark plug, wiped and dried if off, and replaced it. It started right away.)

This belt 'n pulley arrangement isn't the best idea, if you ask me.

Good luck.

Ryobi cs30 rope problem

try removing the starter housing, inside will be a large white or black wheel, visually inspect to make sure the componets are not damaged and that nothing jamming it. try using a lithium spray grease to lubricate the componets. if it still doesn't work the inner coil is probably damaged or came off track. it is very difficult to fix or replace this coil. i suggest taking to your nearest service center but if you would like to try it yourself, let me know and i will give you further instructions.
