Mowing yesterday I got into some thick grass. Mower started to bog down so I disengaged the blade and removed grass from the shoot. When I went to engage the blade the mower stalled. After that it was very hard to pull to start and wouldn’t start. Today I went to start it and again difficult to pull. But if I engaged the blade lever when I pulled it would start but the blade stays on. It ran fine until I disengaged the blade lever. The blade kept running eventually slowing down and then shutting off the mower. Any suggestions? It’s a very good mower and for its age I’ve never had an issue with it until now.
