Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
Can you tell me more about what it does when you try to start it? Does it click or make any noises? Have you checked to make sure all of the safety switches are activated, brake is locked on, both control levers are in the out neutral position?
Do you have a volt meter in order to do some voltage checks or test? We can check to see where the problem is.
Is there someone that you can borrow a meter from? It is going to be really hard to isolate the problem if you don't have a tester.
It could be the ignition switch bad internally that is not passing voltage through it to the starter solenoid in order to start. It could be one of the safety switches that have gone bad. You can bypass the safety switches by unplugging the connector on the back of the switch and placing a jumper wire between the two terminals in the connector.
Okay, I will be available tomorrow if you need assistance. Feel free to come back here and continue our conversation.
