I picked up this mower for $175 and it runs great, starts first pull with no effort and looks amazing. The one issue I have is the electric start will spin over the engine but it won’t fire up. I have no idea what would cause this and I could use some help. If you have any possible solutions or ideas please let me know

Probably just not spinning the motor fast enough. Maybe the battery is past its best or even a tired starter motor. If you have the correct plug in charger, give the battery a good charge - 24hr + and while it’s on charge use the time to check, clean and tighten all the electrical connections - particularly any ground connections to the engine cylinder block or the machine’s chassis. I see that the engine is an OHV so while you are about it, check the valve clearances / lash, particularly the exhaust as that’s probably the one with the decompressor; if it’s too wide the decompressor may not be fully effective.
