mower won't let me pull the start string: any ideas why?

um... anyone know why a lawnmower might not let me pull the starter string/rope?

it goes a few inches & "locks" so I can't start it.

  • only thing happened recently was the "knob" holding the handlebars on came off one side & we had to get a new bolt & reattach it, is it possible this is some safety mech. that is going off because it doesn't think I'm holding down the "safety bar" (you know: those bars that you have to hold down while you mow, so if you let go of the mower it auto-turns off?)

  • it also has a primer button: but I pressed that & so it should work - mower is only a year old.
