Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Do you have a voltmeter to check the battery voltage? Can you turn the engine by using the upper flywheel screen to ensure the engine is not locked? If you follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid and jump across the two cable terminals with an old screwdriver, does engine spin? There would be an ignition fuse in the circuit from the starter solenoid, back to the keyswitch, is this fuse good?
Does the fuel solenoid click when you turn key on and off?
Did engine spin when you jumped starter solenoid? If not , you have no voltage to the starter solenoid, or your starter is bad! What was battery voltage?? Has to be above 12.5 volts
Do you have 12 volts to the key switch through the fuse ?
