How do you get a new lawn mower to start when the starter pull cord is already pulled out?

If it's new you will probably only have to loosen the screws that hold the recoil down, lift it up and the rope should go back in. You may have to take it all the way off, but that should fix it. If you take it all the way off, before you replace the screws, hold the recoil down with your hand and pull on the cord alittle and make sure it's engaging
