My mini 23 will not start using the electric start. The gear coming off the starter advances - it moves to the other gear that would crank the flywheel (I assume), and then just makes a humming noise - as if the bearing, or clutch, is fried. The motor starts normally with the pull start. It's, as if, the starter is unable to turn the gear to start the motor.
advise as to how I can fix? Should I take to a Briggs dealer, or is it relatively simple?
