I have a husqvarna lgt2554 mower … wont start, whines. Makes the whiney sound when I try to start it with the key or when I try to jump it by the solenoid. Does this mean its a bad starter??

My Z5426 won’t start. When I pull out the choke and turn the key, gas starts leaking out of the exhaust system just before it gets to the muffler. Last time it did start, it ran really rough. So, I turn off the engine and then tried to restart and that’s when I noticed the fuel leak.
ANSWER : Maybe bad fuel, fuel line leaking, flooding of the carburetor, since it did start and ran rough I am assuming that the gas was left set and more then likely this gummed up the carburetor, you will have to clean/rebuild it. If you have a can of carburetor clean you may be able to spray that into there and clean it up, I would not choke it to start it as it sounds like it got/is flooded/ing. Good Luck Tim

Power to turn the blades is intermitent. What should I look for?
ANSWER : Loose connection, corrosion on connections. If this machine is new to you, do you have to have the brake or clutch on to activate the blades? I would lean towards wires/connections as the cause of your intermittent problem.
