What do you mean by spins? Is it spinning but not making contact with the fly wheel?

starter solenoid or a bad battery with not quite enough voltage.

That's solenoid or the bendix drive on the nose of the starter. Pull the starter, and see if the shaft sticking out past the drive gear is dry. If it is, put a couple drops of light oil in there. Set the starter nose-up so the oil wicks into the mechanism. Make sure the gear moves freely, and then re-install.
