    My mowers getting now to where you have to cycle the key 5-20 times before it'll engage the starter. Until it does the bat light comes on but it won't hit for that many times. Has water getting into the switch from washing the mower ruined the switch or does this thing need a starter with only 193 hrs on it ? Thanks, Chris

    How old is this unit?
    It may need a starter relay kit to help get more voltage to the starter.

    I'll have to check but it was right before they switched to 20w-50 for the hystat. I changed the relay under the control panel and it hasn't done this in the 10 starts since.
