Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! I don't know it all, but maybe together we can get you a satisfactory answer!
When you turn key, is the starter engaging the flywheel? Or is the starter just spinning.or does it do nothing? Do you have a voltmeter to test voltage at the stater solenoid?
If you go direct to the starter solenoid, where the positive battery attaches, and jump the cable connection to the switch connection, will the starter engage?
OK< try jumping the solenoid per my instruction above.
OK so keyswitch or the wire from the keyswitch to the solenoid is no good.
You could try a jumper wire from keyswtitch to the solenoid, to see if it is wire.
I see question is still open, did you find problem?
