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

ok, remove the spark plug from the cylinder, plug it in the boot, put it on metal and activate the electic start. while it is spinning, check for spark, you should have a great blue spark, if there is no spark when you use the electric start, it is likely an electrical problem( probably a bad ground)

Thanks for the help. I reconnected a loose wire and it fired right up!
