Well Tennis these electric mowers use brushes in their electric moters and they have a tendace to go bad after a few years of heavy use. I would guess you have a nice size yard. The origanal equiptment isn't always the highest quility. You nmay just need new motor brushes and clean the armature. Hope this helps. Farmer Randy From Guthrie

Starte spins when trying to start riding mower.

You may need a starter bendix. The slow cranking may be unrelated and due to a weak solenoid.

I own a 3 year old Husqvarna 2348 riding mower. Mid way in mowing I turned off the mower and refilled the gas tank. When I tried to start the mower, there was a hight pitched "whirling" sound...

At first glance it sounds like starter is not engaging just spinning they usually don not give us a warning they just go at the wrong place and time. Take it off and bench test it to make sure or take it to your local repair shop or maybe even auto zone they will test it for you. Good Luck...

Poulan 38" riding mower.

Battery is likely dead - or has built a sediment bridge - shorting the anode and cathode.
Jump-start the tractor with your vehicle - or another battery to check.

Or - use a multimeter to ensure your battery is not draining to 0V when you attempt to start.
This also indicates a failed battery. It may have a decent float charge - but when the load starter) is applied - the voltage will drop right out.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Mower is about 6 years old, gets light homeowner work. Worked fine all season; today will not start. Tries to crank, but cannot. (Temp around 35.)

My name is Dane and I am going to assist you in solving your problem.

Normally this happens when the battery has discharged enough where it doesn't have enough Amps to turn the starter. Cold weather can actually take a marginal battery and just zap the life from it. I would try putting a 12V charger on it and then try to start it again. If that works, go to a local auto parts store and get a "Battery Buddy" and hook it to your battery while your mower is inactive. This will keep your battery fully charged, is inexpensive and easy to use. I hope I've helped. If you found this reply useful, please leave me some THUMBS UP, if you feel I've deserved them. Thank you! Dane

Snapper Hi-Vac riding mower that won't start with starter

You may need a 300cca battery, an ignition switch or a solenoid to get things going again. I also would check to make sure the starter gear has not locked in the flywheel teeth; it will burn up the starter. You should be able to go to the snapper website and put your model of mower in and find the parts and diagrams you need.
Good Day.

Touble starting my mower

try checking the starter it could have a dead spot in it. I am not a mechanic by any means but had this happen to me on a semi some years ago. sometimes it took someone tapping on it with a hammer while another was holding the key-that was a big truck so I wouldnt go hitting it real hard, or if its not too hard to get to maybe take it off and take it somewhere like a battery/starter specialty shop

Engine drags while trying to start

It may be a problem with the camshaft-compression release. Some of the Briggs & Stratton models had a weak spring on the compression release whis is parts of the camshaft. you may also want tocheck that all wires are clean and tight. Also if it's a over head valve model check the valve clearance.
