Toro timecutter sw4200

Starts fine 95% of time but once in a while it will crank for about a second and then just click.
 I am then unable to start it. I let it sit for a while and then it will start. 
Any help would be appreciated.
It is two years old. The dealer has had it twice for long periods of time and it always starts for him.

    Clicking from the starter solenoid?

    it sounds like a bad starter. next time it does it. try tapping the starter and try starting it at the same time. if it starts up as you do it. the starter is bad and best to buy the oem starter.

    it also could be the solenoid. best thing I can tell you is to look up a video on how to test it and try that.

    I'd be a lil reluctant to get the hammer out to hit the starter, but that's me.

    Striking a permanent magnet starter motor with is one dumbest things that people do. It break loose the magnets or crack them lead to permanent failures. This is an old auto mechanic trick that some tries on these starters. The problem is automobile starters are NOT permanent magnet motors, they are electro-magnetic.
     
    Starting problems can be caused by commuter ring being glazed, poor or corroded electrical connections, bad switches contacts. Usually doing voltage drop test help pin point the problem.
     
    By all things just hammering on these starters, I like selling new ones.
