Customer Question

I have a model 2186 year 2004 with perfect performance until today. The mower was ideling and then stalled. When I attempted to restart the mower the motor would not turn over, turn the key and nothing. I returned the battery to the auto parts store and when tested they said it was fine - only 4 months old. The lights work so I don't think its the battery - any suggestions?

If you jump the battery connection at the stater, to the switch post on the starter, will engine spin?
