Kohler Command 17.5 When starting, makes low buzzing sound

Customer Question

Kohler Command 17.5 When starting, makes low buzzing sound and does turnover
JA: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?
Customer: Yes to fuel and also brand new battery. Mower was originally running well and was left in garage but key on. I replaced battery as it was few years old, but still cannot start.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: The whining is actually more of low buzzing sound. I looked over the wires and the connections and did not find anything there.

Engine is spinning fast enough to start? Do you have a voltmeter to check the battery voltage before start, and when you engage the starter?
