Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Engine turning, just not starting? If you remove one of the spark plugs and place it on the metal of the engine, does it have spark when cranking? If it has spark, check the fuel solenoid in the carburetor. It has to open as soon as the key is turned on. If it looses voltage, it kills engine and engine will not get fuel to restart.

The 't know what the soleniod is. I have checked all fuses on right side of engine compartment

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
not sure what went wrong there. Battery is under seat and no sign of fuses there ?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
OK, do you have voltmeter or a test light to see if there is battery voltage to the key switch? Is battery voltage above 12.5 volts? If you follow the positive battery cable, it goes to the starter solenoid. Can you jump the solenoid and make engine spin?
