Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
What does the machine do? Any noises, clicks?
If you are getting a click then most likely it is the starter solenoid.
Can you check for voltage at the starter when you try to start the engine with the ignition key? Are you getting any voltage to the starter at all with the key turned to the start position?
What engine do you have on this machine? Is the solenoid mounted to the frame or the side of the starter?
With a volt meter can you check for voltage at the starter when the key is turned to the start position? If you are not getting any then the solenoid is bad internally and not throwing power to the starter. If you are getting 12 VDC then the starter is either stuck or bad.
Thank you for letting me know.
