Obviously, with yours being petrol, then that can't be the reason.

Does yours turn over at every press of the start button, or is it a case of pushing and nothing happens?

Hi Paul thanks for your reply, unfortunately on pressing my start button I get nothing no turning of the starter, this will be the case until 3rd maybe 4th press at which time it will fire up as usual.
