How do I release a jammed starter motor on a Honda 1211 Hyrdrostatic Ride On mower?

Engine is always reluctant to start and occasionally starter motor seems to stick. Turning the ignition switch full off allows starter to renegade and eventually motor will start. Today, starter appears to have stuck and won't disengage. When key is turned, just get a dull clonk noise and motor won't turn. Battery is good and freshly charged.

Testimonial: "Ray. Thanks for your help. Turned out to be a sticky Bendix. I turned the flywheel to disengage the starter and put a few drops of light oil around the shaft. Starter motor now dis-engages every time."

I have a 1994 honda vt1100 and i have to jump it everytime i ride. i ride for a bit of time. when i turn it off the bike wont start. any ideas please help


Most certainly the starter motor. Either brushes or bushes. Suggest you remove the starter and have it overhauled. The fact that you can jump start it with no problem show it is only in the starting up, hence the starter motor.

The flywheel is only cranking slowly at start up, engine won't fire. The lead to the starter motor and the starter motor heats up, smokes a little. I have checked the battery, replaced the starter solenoid...


If your unit has OHV engine you need to check the intake and exhaust valve gap. Call your local repair shop to get numbers and check this website out. Go to smalleng.com they have a video for just what you are looking for. Good Luck...

I have a ride on mower with a 14.5 HP B & S OHV engine. It is very hard to start when cold as it kicks back on the starter motor.


You could have more than one problem so I will list the two most common. The compression release is built into valve train and if the valve adjustment is off, the starter motor will not turn the engine over under full compression. You will need to know the model no. of the engine to get the proper valve settings. Also, there have been flooding conditions with some of the carburetors that will cause the combustion chamber to fill with fuel and the engine will not turn over. Hope this is enough information to get you in the right direction.

Ride on mower mtd will not start


Use a jumper cable from the battery to the post on the starter where the wire from the solonoid connects, if it spools up normal its the cable to the starter motor, if it continues to turn slow remove the starter and clean up the places where the starter and engine case contact each other (to ensure a good ground). If none of these solutions correct the issue the starter could be dragging and need to be replaced.

Ride on will not start. B&S motor.


Logic would dictate that the starter motor is burning out, drawing far too much current, and that the current overheated the solenoid and toasted it. Now the starter is almost a short circuit and while it spins it has no power. A spendy part to be sure. Perhaps you can find a used one from your friendly neighborhood repair guy.
A compression release is found on old diesel's, but not on gas engines.
Starters can fail from cranking on them for extended periods. They are designed to handle short periods of use, maybe 20 seconds on followed by several minutes (like 15) off. If you have had starting problems and kept cranking to get it going that would explain the fried starter.

I have an RZT50 Cub Cadet Mower that only starts with jump


it sounds like the starter motor is pulling to many amps for the battery to cope with. if its a 12v system it should not pull the battery down to less than 8.5 volts on cranking if it does the starter-motor is defective you can check this with a volt meeter across the battery terminals and see what it read as you crank the engine. hope this helps
