Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
What engine do you have on this machine? Can you provide me with the model information from the engine?
I would normally say that you have a starter solenoid that is stuck causing this but you have indicated that you replaced the starter which would have come with a new starter solenoid if I am looking at the correct engine.
I would go back and look at the ignition switch it may be internally making contact with the start system when it should not be.
