Check to make sure the motor turns by hand, you may want to remove the sparg plug to make it a bit easier to turn, if it turns ok you may have stripped the gear on the starter or possibly the ringear

I have a kohler 25 hp on a simplicity tractor. Turn the key nothing but I can jump across starter the engine starts then shuts itself off in about twenty seconds.new starter and switch


Sounds like you may have two issues..one electrical and one mechanical..
When you say jumping the starter, do you mean the starter solenoid? If you can jump the solenoid and the engine will start, you have a bad solenoid..
The running for twenty seconds is about how long it takes to burn the fuel out of the carb bowl.
The needle and seat need to be cleaned/replaced.. this is the valve that controls the flow of gas into the carb... if its not working properly it will do exactly as you described.. you may need to replace the needle..the seats are sometimes pressed into the carb body and cannot be removed... the needle is rubber coated at the point of contact.. it wears out so the seat does not.. sometimes if the engine has set up for extended time.. cleaning might fix it!!
Good luck!

My 2004 330ci won't start, does not turn over. The battery is fine, all electrical in the car work fine, plus trying to jump car does not work & a green light is showing on the battery in the truck....


If the battery is fine, why jump it? Faulty thinking to state or think: all electrical in the car work fine. If it did the starter motor would be turning the engine over. The starter motor work on electrical...not all is fine.

check: 1) 60a starter fuse/relay. 2) voltage to starter when turning key to activate starter motor, this will rule out ignition switch or relay. 3) apply direct voltage to starter motor to detect bad starter motor.

My 1100 just spins wont turn motor over


Hi,
It sounds like the starter is not engaging to the engine. Pull the starter and have it checked. Disconnect battery first. :o)
Good luck!

Non starting Jota


32 amp brand new its been on charge for about 18 hours Acid for battery was put in by a dealer all electric functions working except the starter when the starter button is pushed there is a click and I can feel movment in a solonoid in front and just above the battery (in an ally case) all nuts to starter motor removed cleaned and re tightened Fuses checked (I can only find 2) these fuses are located behind the left side of the battery in a little black cover are perhaps there more fuses which are relavent to the starter the bike is in my workshop and I cant really get a go at jumping it on my own. I did try jumping when I thought it was the battery but it wouldnt go. I thought it was due to NO charge in the battery. Try a single jump lead from the +'ve on the battery direct to the starter motor. A screwdriver across to 2 solonoid connections does the same thing but is harder to control. You need to be careful as if there is an internal short in the starter motor you can run the risk of serious burns from very large fault currents flowing. Next is the poxy short battery negative to crank case...replace with a longer one to the actual starter motor 8m/m mounting bolt ( closest 8m/m to the barrel is more neat ). Less hazerdous is to get a cheap mumtimeter and measure the voltage across the starter motor when you press the starter button some times it is just a dirty segment on the starter motor remove plugs from cylinders, load the HT leads with removed plugs, rest against engine and engage top gear. Press the starter and rotate back wheel slightly backwards ( rocking motion ) going backwards engages the jaming roller clutch to move the starter off the dirty segment if present,,,

Engine won.t turn


hi can you turn engine over by hand [engine s not sezied ] and how did you test the battery and how did you test starter because if the engines not seized and you put a jump lead from your positive terminal off a good battery to a starters main terminal and it wont, turn over the starters faulty or there is no engine earth so connect the other jump lead from the negative battery teminal to the engine block and try again it will turn over if the starters good if the starter turns over with the jump leads check the small terminal on the starters wire is live when someone turns the ignition key if it is and the starter does not turn over then the soleniod on the starter is faulty if no live at small terminal then the ignition switch or starter relay are faulty best of luck yates2104546
