Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, My name is Jay
What is the year, make and model of your vehicle and the engine size?
Sorry I do not work on these vehicles and will opt out.
What is compression? Is the fuel pump sending good flow of fuel to the carburetor? Has fuel filter between tank and fuel pump been replaced? New spark plug? Good bright spark at the spark plug?
Do you hear the micro switch at foot pedal click when pedal is pushed? If you hear the micro switch, do you hear the starter solenoid click? Solenoid has to close, to engage the starter generator. Either the foot pedal switch is bad, or the wiring to the solenoid, or the solenoid is bad.
No, its in the box under the drivers side mat or in the solenoid / battery box , where throttle cable goes to.
The micro switch and solenoid are inexpensive items . I would take both with me! Thanks!
