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!
Does the starter click? What is battery voltage? Can you turn the engine by hand, to insure the engine is not locked up? When did it last start and run?
Battery cables tight? Can you follow the battery cable to the starter solenoid and jump the solenoid, to see if the engine will spin. Are the arms in the neutral position and neither arm switch stuck?
Do you see the arm switches or hear them click? If any safety switch does not close, the starter will not engage. Seat, neutral switches, pto switch off.
neutral switches are the arm switches
You don't have voltmeter to check battery voltage?
Try jumping the starter solenoid, which is test of battery, cables, and starter.
I see question is still open, did you find problem?
