Sounds like a lot, but think of the satisfaction and the lack of
dependence on someone who might do it wrong.
Cost of Ohm Meter $4 HF
Cost of book to learn to use it $30 or find one at the library,
or ask a series of questions here.
Cost of replacement wire for mower $0.69.
Cost of electrical tape to connect the wire $1.59
Better buy about 15 of those $4 HF meters. Each one will last about
30 minutes, so if the learning takes 6 hours, there goes 12 HF meters,
leaving only 3 to do the repair. Like any of the cheap imported junk
sold at HF, you cant expect it to last for more than one use. But 15
meters will only cost $60 (plus tax). Which is just about the same
price of a quality Fluke brand meter which will last for many years.
Or just go to
Costs nothing.... Use the saved $30 to buy a QUALITY meter. (unless
you're anti-American or have friends in China or Taiwan you want to
support by shopping at HF).

I know how you feel but I've had some $4 ones for years, used them for
hundreds of measurements. One function doesn't work in one of them,
but I burned it out myself. Had it set on 20 VDC and put it on
110vac. I"ve ruined a couple other functions in more expensive
meters over the last 45 years.
I'm no fan of China, but online made an outrageous claim.
I am guessing that this is an electric start lwnmower. You did not
specifically say, also a make and model ID would have reduced some of
the guessing that your poor ID has caused. If it is electric start,
you seem to be saying that when you push or turn the start switch,
that the electic motor that turns the gas motor does not operate. Can
you confirm this, also is it a push or a turn switch?? Then we can go
from that pont. But you must learn to be much more specific if you
want a rational answer posted here.
