Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is John I will be assisting you.
Did you load test the battery? Are you hearing any kind of noises when you try to start the machine? Clicks, buzzes?
Load testing requires a battery tester that has a feature on it that allows you to apply a load to the battery just like if you were trying to start the engine. This load test will actually tell you what condition the battery is in while you are attempting to start the engine. It is the only real way of knowing the true battery condition. If you aren't getting any noises at all, then I would suspect the battery to be a problem. Have you checked fuses to make certain that you don't have a blown fuse that would keep the starting system from functioning?
You can do a load test yourself with a voltmeter attached to the battery, try to crank the engine and watch the meter to see how low the voltage reading drops on it while trying to crank the engine. This will give you some idea as to what is going on. The voltage needs to stay in the 8 - 9 volt range while cranking in order for the battery to be considered good.
