    When I turn the key on my tractor, nothing happens for a second or two, then sounds like it is straining to start cranking, then starts a full crank and turns over. Changed the battery and did full tune up, but it is still doing it. Wires all seem ok. Is the starter going bad??

On most riding mowers there are several switches that must be actuated before it will start. First, make sure that blades are disengaged. Also, if there is a handle that engages and disengages the blades, you might try holding it in the dis-engage position in case the switch is out of adjustment. There is probably one under the seat also. This switch kills everything if you are not sitting in the seat for safety reasons. The switch here could be out of adjustment or mis-positioned. Also, make sure the parking brake is set, and the gear is in neutral, and not forward or reverse. Also, even if the parking brake is set, you might try pressing the brake all the way down while starting, as this switch might be out of adjustment. All of the switches should be easy to locate and adjust. Also, you should check the battery. It is possible that you left the key on by mistake and drained it.

Hope some of this helps.

With key my riding lawn mower does not start, not even crank. Nothing happened.


Are you positive that the battery is fully charged? If so check for current reaching the starter motor. If current is there then it appears that the starter motor is no good. If no current reaches motor it is possible the ignition switch is no good.

AS YOU HAVE CHANGED ALL OF THESE COMPONENTS TO NO AVAIL IT HAS TO BE A BREAK IN THE WIREING ITSELF, YOU WILL HAVE TO FOLLOW THE WIREING WITH A MULTI METER TO FIND WHERE THE POWER IS LOST.

Replaced battery for lawn tractor and nothing happens.


You probably just blew the fuse behind the ignition or the fuse link on the power to solenoid.
