Probably not the solenoid they usually work or they don't. Slow cranking could be due to weak battery or bad connections, check those. If all is ok starter motor could be bad. Always check simplest first.

    is it possible that the starter will turn the engine but not enough to start it?

  • wayne baldwin Oct 07, 2010

    Yes it is possible, but if its turning that slow it would be very noticeable. If you have amp meter you can check and see how many amps starter is drawing. You can also use a jumper cable and jump from positive post on battery to the connection on the starter motor, with the key in the on position it should start. See if it turns faster, if it does the problem is elsewhere. Sure battery is ok?

I got a Honda mantis rototiller,gx25 model 4 stroke,its got a new carb../ plug / gas / oil / fuel filter / ignition switch, its getting gas to carb/ getting spark but it wont start up .....help me..


If you have proper timing, compression, gas and a spark, the engine should fire/run.
Have you tried a spritz of starter fluid to see if it fires ?
The flywheel could have sheared the key and affected timing.
About the last thing I can think of is valve adjustment, specifically the intake valve, although I think it would be difficult to pull the crank rope if that's the problem.

I have a John Deere 425 riding tractor that sounds like it wants to start but wont actually fire


Is the engine being cranked by the starter but it won't fire? You say you're getting spark? You need air, fuel, spark, and compression to start so...
Pull the air filter and see if it is blocked.
Inspect the choke plate to see if it is working properly.
Are the plugs getting wet when you try to start?
Take the gas cap off the fuel tank and try to start.
Take the plugs out and move the wires where they can't ground. Stick your finger (thumb) in one plug hole and with the throttle wide open and no choke crank the engine. Is there compression? Try the other plug hole. A compression tester would be better than a finger or thumb.
No compression can be popped push rods or a cam problem among other things.

You need three things. Spark, compression and fuel. Pull the spark plug and make sure it is not fouled and you have spark when cranking. Put your finger over the spark plug hole and feel for compression while pulling the engine over. There is a reed valve between carb and block that clogs and prevents fuel from getting to cylinder.

Hi Andy, the carby will need to be removed and all jets cleaned out with compressed air. Basically its not getting enough fuel through the carby to keep running. Regards Phil.

Yard Machines 13.5 HP riding mower wont start. It turns over fast, has good spark, good gas, good filter, clean carb, just wont fire. It ran fine yesterday and i parked it last night and tried to fire it...


Hi, check that the choke is operating and make sure the plug is wet after cranking. If so replace the sparkplug as it may be breaking down under compression. Also make sure it has compression ad it may have a stuck valve. regards Phil

My MTD Yard machines riding mower won't start.


Probably dead gas from sitting too long. Dump it out & put in fresh gas.Could have moisture in it. Pull out spark plug & crank it over several times after putting gas & let it sit a while to dry out or blow it out with compressed air. It should go.

Poulan 6.75 Lawn mower will not start


Remove spark plug, clean and dry. Replace plug. Remove air filter. Spray WD-40 into carb opening; one second blast. Turn over engine, (pull handle). Engine should start briefly and run for 3 seconds.  If not, you are not getting spark to spark plug. If engine starts, you have a dirty carb and you can buy a rebuild kit from manufacture.

Guide to starting a dead horse!
1- Spray a little starter fluid down the carbuerator. If it tries to fire, your timing and ignition is probably OK. This could indicate a carb or fuel pump problem.
2- If it doesn't fire, check out the points, condenser, coil, distributor cap and rotor. Look for condensation inside the cap. Check that the high tension wire from the coil to distributor is in good shape and not touching the engine or any brackets,etc.
3- Verify that your timing is correct. You may have a timing train problem (Worn or broken).
4- The distributor may have come loose and changed positions. Check for proper timing.
5- It may be a compression problem. If it has set long enough for the oil that coats the cylinder walls to drain down, you won't have enough compression to allow firing. Check your compression and if this seems to be the case, remove the spark plugs and squirt a little Marvel Mystery oil, or similar light weight oil into each cylinder. When it starts, it will smoke for a few minutes, but that will go away.
Hope this helps and if not, get back to me.
Have a super day!
Ron
