Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! I don't know it all, but maybe together we can get you a satisfactory answer!
If you turn key on and off, do you hear the fuel solenoid in the carburetor click? If no click from the fuel solenoid as you flip key on and off, you have no voltage to the key switch, Locate the ignition fuse, behind the engine ad check the fuse.
If you follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid, and jump the cable connection , to the single switch wire on the same solenoid, will engine spin? You say battery is ok? Do you have voltmeter to test battery voltage?
But the engine did turn, so battery , cables and solenoid and starter are ok. The keyswitch can be bad, or one of the safety switches , seat or brake, or pto , can be keeping the key from engaging the starter. When was engine last running?
suspect bad key switch. take wd 40 and spray in the switch and then turn switch on ad off and work it , pushing down as you turn, t see if it will make connections.
Good job, at least it is running! Thanks
