Starts Great cold, Will not start when hot

Usually it's the opposite lol...but this is a normal issue sometimes when too much oil is added into the oil cavity. Then what happens is the oil gets hot and thins out creeping past the piston rings, next time you go to start it, it's basically too oiled up,wet... combustion suffers.. check the oil level, spray carburetor cleaner into the plug and the carburetor if possible. Restart the mower and let it burn off the excess oil. If this until has a thermostat, double check to make sure that it's not closing off and choking out the air flow.

Are you saying the serpentine belt is screeching after the engine starts, or the starter is screeching when you are cranking the engine ?

One cylinder not firing

check compression hot and cold both cylinders there should be at most a 5% difference in compression values. if compression is low in the one in question than be paired to rebuild the unit.

Hooked battery up backwards. No response now. Did this affect the electrical system?

hi there osudadof3

most likley that you blew the main fuse , replace the fuse with same rating and see what happens but be carefull enven though the unit may start and run - it may have blown the regulator / rectifier ( through a a direct short to ground ) and or damaged the ignition armature(s)
as they do not like d/c current through the primary windings ( they burn / blow out )

did the machine turn over ? or did it blow fuse straight away when key turned on ?

let me know what you find

Starts when cold but once it is warm and is shut off it won't

Looking at your brief description can I guess that when warm the starter turns slowly? as if a flat battery?
If this is so then the starter windings and armature are possibly cooked??
Have you recently tried cranking the engine too much? or with a poorly charged battery?
When cranking the starter gets very warm and if not left to cool after 5 seconds of cranking can cook the wiring/armature internals of starter.
When your engine is cold the Windings/armature are too so will turn easier, but when warm all internals are expanded so more drain and heat! then causing the starter to revolve slowly taking a lot of power from engine and ignition circuitry.
This can also be caused from trying to start a vehicle with low battery, Volts go down Amps go up cooking/frying the winding/armature.
I am suggesting this as all I have to go on from the description STARTS COLD BUT ONCE IT IS WARM???? I hope this helps,
If it does please remember to press FixYa button as I have taken a lot of time to post the response.
Good Luck!
