Motor turns well with plug in but won't turn over when plug

Customer Question

Motor turns well with plug in but won't turn over when plug is back in.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so we can help you best.
Customer: New battery new start. The motor can be turned over by hand even with the plug in. But the starter will not turn the motor over when I put the plug in.
JA: Is there anything else the Small Engine Technician should be aware of?
Customer: I can't think of anything.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Small Engine Technician about your situation and then connect you two.
