Question about Ariens Garden
I have problems with my zoom 34 not getting any voltage from the battery to the starter. Although I have a fully charged battery, I have no voltage getting to the starter with the key turned. In my troubleshooting, it appears that all wiring converges under a plate under the seat and behind the fuel tank. What is the best way to get access to the wiring and solenoid to support my troubleshooting?

SOURCE: New starter does not work
The spring on the starter motor helix is either stuck or broke, or the starter gear is jammed in the flywheel gear.
Take the cover off the starter motor and you can see the flywheel, starter gear, spring and helix shaft.
If its just stuck, free it up and spray some WD40 in there.
If the gear was jammed into the flywheel teeth then check for damage and wear. They are made from quite a soft metal and burrs can easily be filed and removed.
The "clunk" you are hearing is probably the starter solinoid. If you think its a more mechanical sound than that, it could be the starter taking up slack against a jammed gear.
If the engine runs file on a pull start, its unlikely to be a jammed gear/flywheel and more likely the spring is broke or the gear is stuck at the base of the helix.
If its none of those things and the clunk is the solinoid, then you will have to check to see if 12v is getting to the starter motor. If so, it might actually be the motor.
So, in order of likelyhood/checking:
1) spring stuck or broke
2) Gear jammed on helix
3) solonoid <-> motor electrics
4) gear jammed on flywheel
Its a good idea to keep in working - very sensible.

A fully charged battery should read a minimum of 12.65, if it does not and connections and grounds are dirty then that's your problem. Start with a none fully charged battery.If you can bypass the solenoid and start it then the culprit is the solenoid. Good luck. donnyb60

yes it could be the starter next time it won't start give the starter motor a tap with a hammer or wheel brace also check where the small blade connector is there should be a fuse in line could be the problem hope this helps regards Jim

a lawn mower is not much different than a car, you still need 3 things to make it run: fuel, electricity, and a spark. you say it doesnt stay running, Before trying to make any repairs, ensure that you are using the correct fuel, also make sure the fuel lines are not leaking or crimped. if the lines seem fine, check the fuel filter and/ or fuel pump. though the mower is new, they can still have faulty componets.

SOURCE: My VW Golf 1.6 will not start.
If when you turn the key to start and the solenoid wire (small wire) gets current, check and make sure you have a good ground. If you do the starter is bad. Replace the starter and your problem will be solved.
