The unit will not start. I have new battery. When I first put the battery in, it tried to crank. Than it stop trying to turn


Check your starter relay. Put a volt meter on your batt and make sure you have high 12s or 13volts. Follow your red wire from your battery to the relay (solenoid). If wires are loose, poor connection or if it is bad this could be the cause. Next thing would be to bypass the relay and connect straight to the starter. Use the wire connected to the relay. If it does not turn over nice and fast now it is either your connection to the starter or a bad starter.

My electric start had stopped working. And every time I went to try and start it make a clicking noise. Now I have changed the starter solenoid and the new part makes a buzzing noise.


Sounds like a dead battery , try jumping the starter w a screw driver if it's new it will turn over at least , dead batt or starter solenoid is most likely cause, if your shure your batt is good? Try sanding connections

My yamaha wont turn on i tryed moving the gear that the starter turns and one way it moves nice and clean and the other way locks and wont move what could it be


When it "locks", that's just compression - it's normal. If you turn it so it "locks" and wait a while, you'll be able to turn it a little more before it "locks" again - that's compression leakage, again normal. If you put it into gear and rock the machine back & forth, you'll be able to see the ring gear turning, too. Normal.

So... let's back up. When this all started happening, did the starter just crank the engine slowly? DId it crank quickly but the engine didn't fire? The battery may be dead or near-dead now, in which case you'll need to charge it or jump-start it. Regardless of how it acted, there's a lot of stuff to check before we can know for sure why it wasn't starting. First... check to be sure it has plenty of good new gasoline in it.

Yamaha breeze 125 wont start.have checked spark plug & cleaned carb.My son got it bogged down pretty good in a mud & after we got it out it wouldnt start.What else could be the problem?


Have you checked for spark? That's where you need to go to first. Take out the plug, put it back on the plug wire and hold it against the cylinder head. Kick over the motor and watch for spark.
