I ran into a problem with mine a few times where it wouldn't start. Turned out to be the starter gear was hanging up in the flywheel. The gear had a few rough edges on it that would hang up and not let the gear disegage. I put some grease on it and it helped but would occasionally hang up.
If I tried to start it and I had power but nothing would happen when I turned the key, I would put the motor in gear, raise the motor, then take my paddle and rock the prop back and forth a little. This would pop the gear loose from the flywheel. Put it back in neutral and it would start right up.
just my experience with mine...
