St1032 electric start

I decided to plug in my extension cord and my starter just takes off without touching the rubber button on top of the engine. ST1032

Bad ground? Or bad switch

Any ideas... Thanks guys

Ps.. I'm new

Switch

After opening the switch cover/box it appears to have been exposed to water. The gasket was wound around one of the mounting screws pretty bad. Ordered a cherry E13-00E switch off amazon to replace.

Hi and welcome to the forum. Glad you were able to get the part. Pics and more description can help get more responses. Details like what brand engine you have can help the non Ariens guys like me help you.

Yes welcome from the great white north. Photos of what you did may also help us less skilled when we need to do the same repair.
Cheers

Thank you for the warm welcome. I will get some switch disassembly pictures posted to show the corrosion. Reassemble with the new switch and photos of that as well. The engine is a 10hp Tecumseh.

Cherry makes some quality switches.
I've never opened the switch housing on my Tecumseh's that had electric start before.
Are you able to install a rubber boot and seal up the switch housing again to keep moisture out?

Good pictures

You beat me too it

I saw the replacement part prices $$$ and decided to do whatever it took to find just the switch. The blower usually starts on the second pull so $88 +shipping wasn't really an option. Amazon cost was $7.18 which helped a lot since I didn't want this repair to dip into the funds I have appropriated for my heated hand grip project

This is the faulty switch. The rubber piece that you press just sits on top of the button like a hat.
