Ride on mower with battery fully charged, fuel tank full, clean spark plug, when trying to start just get a click sound

It sounds like a soleniod ,battery or stuck or broken stater. Try jumping it with a charger or jumper cables after checking battery for corrosion and lose connections. Then progress to the solenoid ,then to the stater . After that it's more than likely a wiring issue.

Battery won't charge How can I trouble shoot electrical

*if your battery wont charge,
1) you might check for an "in-line" fuse from the "stater" to the starter cyliniod . could be blown.
2) or the "stater" , which is located under the fly wheel is gone bad.. it will need replaced..(this isnt cheep)
3) make sure all your battery and cyliniod wire leads are good and tight.

p.s. IM TYPING "S.T.A.T.E.R." not starter..the charging mechanism is called a "stater" not alternater...f.y.i.
