    I just got a 2003 redmax eb 7001. I tried to start it and the pull cord is very hard to pull. I did give it a couple of pulls but got nothing. I replaced the plug and gas filter. Any ideas on steps I should take before taking it in to get looked at. I am wondering if the engine is seized. Any input is appreciated.

    Take the plug out and see if things are moving ok inside the engine. If so, you may need to clean the carb. Not sure what it was doing before you "got it"...did you buy it from someone?

    I did buy it from someone, I believe the carb is ok was wondering if it could be the coil since I am not getting any juice. I will see what happens when I remove the plug.
