That was happening to me, until I realized I had to have both steering bars pulled back toward me all the way before the mower would start. I'm not sure why it started doing this, but you can try pulling both bars back as far back toward you as you can, and then see if it will turn over for you. I hope this helps.

You may want to try to find a battery with a stronger amperage rating. Even if the battery passes if it is borderline for starting it new it may not be strong enough even if it's still okay for it's battery type.

Other causes:
A worn starter can cause this issue. If a few of the coils shorted the starter will work but require much more current to do the job

A bad relay/solenoid to the starter that doesn't allow enough current to go through can cause this.

Valves out of adjustment... especially on some Briggs and Stratton engines, it's a known issue that if the valves need adjustment the motor can require a lot of energy to turn over and can cause constant hard starts.

I don't know. Having said that, I would sugg3est you smack the bolt a good single solid blow then try RH again. BTW - Lefty Loosey ... Righty - Tighty.

I would expect it will be on very tight ... you might want to spray a product called Liquid Wrench or other penetrating oil on the bolt and let it sit for a while before you try again.

Try not to break it ... but if you do ... it is not the end of the world. You can drill it and use an "easy out" to remove the broken stud from the hole. Get help on easy out and drill size before you start if it gets to this point.
