Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 months ago

Do you have the Kohler model number? Single cylinder engine or a twin engine? Do you have spark at the plug when cranking?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
THE KOHLER ENGINE IS A TWO CYLINDER MODEL #SV7208 SER #(###) ###-####SPEC # PS-SV720-0023 WHEN I TRY TO START IT, IT ONLY TURNS APPROX 1/8 TURN. IT NEVER TURNS FAR OR FAST ENOUGH TO GENERATE A SPARK. THE MOWER HAD NOT BEEN STARTED FOR ABOUT A MONTH. IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THE ENGINE IS FROZE UP AND COULD I FORCEABLY TURN IT?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I still would like a possible answer or suggestion as to what to do next,
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 months ago

Remove both spark plugs and see if it turns. It may have fluid on top of a piston. If it still does not spin with starter, Do you have voltmeter to check battery voltage when starter is engaged?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I will try your suggestion. Also I did put in a brand new battery, also I do have a voltmeter. what should it read when the starter is engaged?
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 months ago

Battery has to be above 8 volts, never lower, when cranking.
