Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
We can continue from here. Thanks!
Thanks for this information. Our problem could be caused by your ignition switch, but I would like for you to check something first. There is a small wire that attaches to the trigger spade on your solenoid. This wire energizes your solenoid, and closes the circuit between your battery, and your starter. Check this wire for voltage when your ignition switch is in start position. If you are getting 12 volts, but your engine still will not spin, then you could have a bad ground. Do this test during the times when your engine will not start.
If this wire does not have voltage, then you have either a faulty ignition switch, a faulty brake safety switch, or a faulty pto safety switch.
How are you today?
Due to the fact that I cannot see or hear your mower, I must ask troubleshooting questions, and make suggestions.
I have no way of knowing what you have already tried. I asked you about checking the small wire that attaches to your solenoid, but you never responded to me.
I am here to here you. Your satisfaction is very important to me.
Do you have a 12 volt test light?
I would love to continue working with you, until we figure out what is causing our problem.
