The 10640 model does not have an electric start that I can see. Are you sure you have to model number correct? The 10642 and 10642C models are electric start. I will use the 10642 as a parts reference.

The electrical assembly is here:

Where did you pull the wires out from? The battery box? The mower harness? The switch?
From looking at the parts available you should be able to figure out which part you need to replace.

I just bought a Sears Craftsman snow blower,put gas and oil in it.Itried to pull the starter cord but it will not pull. I then tried the electric starter but it just grinded.Why won t it start?


Sounds like a serious flooding issue, perhaps due to having blower on its side, take out spark plug and place plastic bag over and try pulling over, be careful that it doesn't spark and ignite any fuel expelled out of cylinder.
if that is the case pull over several times blow off plug and try again, fuel might be trapped in muffler so be aware of spray, ignition.
If it doesn't pull over with the plug removed take it back as a valve might be sprung.

Toro Electric Start Problem


Remove spark plug and observe condition. Fouled with oil, bad motor. With plug removed pull rope several times to blow out cylinder. Spray WD40 in spark plug hole, pull rope several times see if oil blows out. Spray a lot of starter fluid in spark plug hole, replace plug. Spray starter fluid in air cleaner area of carb, try to start. Replace spark plug, try to start. Ensure oil is full, all mowers have a low oil sensor now. 30w oil. Always use Stabile in gas.

In that case, the circuit board in also bad. This happens when the batteries aren't changed in a timely manner. You can buy a circuit board with batteries at shaveroutlet.com. See link below.

http://shaveroutlet.com/braun-printed-circuit-board-with-batteries-p-107.html

To open the shaver you will need to remove the two plastic screw covers on the bottom on either side of the port where the plug fits in. Then remove the screws underneath. The outer case will then slide off the bottom. You may need to reposition the travel lock to get it all the way of. Then unsnap the black plastic back of the inner case and remove it. You can then lift out the old circuit board. Reassemble in reverse order.

Sounds like you have lost something in your primary. If you lost say the primary chain, the starter wouldn't work nor could you push start the bike. In other words, you cannot get the engine to turn over. I'd pull the primary cover off and have a look in there. Those bikes were notorious for the engine sprocket nut coming loose.

Drain the oil out of the primay by removing the drain plug underneath the primary. While you're under the primary, loosen the lock nut on the primary chain adjuster and back the adjuster out a bit. Now, remove the large round clutch adjuster access plug and remove the small spring and locknut. Remove all the bolts around the primary cover. As you remove the outer primary cover, you'll have to turn the clutch adjuster screw inwards until the cover comes free. Now the cover should be off.

If you have something wrong in the primary, it should be obvious. The chain will be loose because you have backed off on the adjuster to get the outer primary off. Look for a loose engine sprocket or something wrong with the clutch assembly. If you need anymore help, come back here to repost or contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net

It sounds like the starter drive may be jammed. It should not be engaged unless you are using the starter motor. Take the spark plug wire off, put on heavy leather gloves, and try turning the blade by hand to dislodge the starter drive. If it does dislodge, plug the spark plug wire back up and try the pull start again.

My Cutlass Supreme S need diagram on installing starter.


I have a 3.4L engine and my starter is wedged in between the frame, oil filter, and then covered by A/C unit tubing headed to the A/C compressor.

Before I got started with the starter I personally had to remove the engine brace on the front of the car holding the engine in place to the frame (very easy) and laid it back on the engine. Then I removed the fans on my radiator and bracing sitting atop the radiator to help clear the way. I personally also had to remove some A/C tubing running to the A/C compressor of the car in order to remove the starter which was still running into some hose right next to the oil filter. So the A/C will have to be recharged afterwards.

Remove the little plastic shield covering the flywheel and some of the starter. Remove the 3 bolts holding the starter. Slowly work the starter out of its recessed hole being careful not to pull to hard on the hose right next to the oil filter.

Place the new guy in there and reinstall all components. Only this time you will need to recharge your A/C when you are done.

First remove the plastic shield covering the flywheel.

Will not start


Follow the red battery cable(positive)and it should take you to the back of the starter motor.While someone is turning key to crank you can hit the outer case of the starter with the appropriate tool as this can loosen up a jammed starter.
