Hi, my name is Bill Parker, and today I'm going to show you how to repair your electric starter on your lawnmower. The first thing you want to do is to remove the dust cover which is just a matter of these two small screws. Then we'll remove the cable for the starter, set that out of the way. Then we'll remove the starter bolts. Once you've done this, you can inspect it or repair it as needed. If it's just a simple fix like a new gear on the end of the starter, you can bring it to any lawn and garden shop, have them put a new gear on. If it's anything more involved with it, anything inside the starter, the best thing to do is just to replace it. There are no replacement parts for them unless you've got a rebuild shop in your area, you're better off just buying a new one, replacing it and you know you're good to go. So, I know I've inspected this, everything works free. This one has a steel ring gear, some of them have plastic. In this case it's steel, everything looks fine so I'm going to go ahead and reinstall it, put my retaining bolts back on first, then I'll hook up my cable and then I'll put my dust cover back on. And that's all there is to do to replace your electric start on your lawnmower.
