Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is ***** ***** me review the issue, and I will be more than happy to help resolve it as quickly as possible.
What happens when you try to jump the solenoid?
Check to make sure the starter gear is not jammed on the flywheel and the humming is from starter trying to engage. Try powering the starter directly and see if it spins over.
did you test the starter on or off the machine? It may spin off, but not have the power to spin under pressure.
yes it should. if it is not moving, you need a new starter or at least rebuild that one if it has a kit to rebuild it
What engine is on the machine?
I am unsure about the humming sound. Let me OPT OUT and see if a JD Expert may be better able to assist you. Please do not respond as a new expert will not get question then. Sorry, but I do not want to give you wrong info
