Is the Starter Solenoid hard to replace on a Craftsman 30 riding mower?


I don't know this exact model, but it should be quite easy if you have some basic tools. Where does the large cable from th (+) positive side of battery go? In some cases the solenoid is mounted on the starter, in others it is bolted to the frame of the machine, usually close to the starter. Be sure to remove the (-) negative battery cable before starting any electrical work.

What should I do; I have a craftsman 26 hp 54" deck yard tractor that will click but will not start?


Test starter by using jumper cables from negative pay on battery to a good ground (bare metal on the frame somewhere) and positive post to starter post ( should be a thick red wire attached to starter post. Be careful because the starter will turn bypassing all safeties. You should have the key off, parking brake on, blades disconnected. If starter turns, starter is good.

Riding lawn mower stopped working, now it just makes a clicking noise when you turn the key, the grass was pretty high when this happened...did the engine blow?


the battery is just probably low,, make sure it has a full 12 volts or better, check to make sure the battery posts are clean and making good contact ,,, riding mowers charge slowly, and if the current can't charge the battery , then the mower is just draining it as you run it, hitting a large clump of grass could stall out the motor, But I doubt it Blew it up,, check those items ,, Good Luck

Hello - I have craftsman 42 inch deck mower with a kohlar engine that does not start. Battery appears fine, when I turn it - it clicks with the head lights turning on. Ang ideas on how to get it started?...


With the key in the run position, using a jumper cable, jump from the positive post on battery to terminal on starter motor. If it runs you have a solenoid or ignition switch problem. (assuming all electrical connections are clean). If it doesn't crank the battery is the culprit.

Riding mower-starter relay clicks-no start even with jumpers.


The frame of the tractor is the same thing that starter grounds to,so yes ,put the ground any where on the frame or engine block to test the starter.An easier way to test everything is to cross over the large posts on the solenoid with a screwdriver and if it turns then the starter is not the problem.Then you will need to put power from the post on the solenoid that has the battery positive connected to it ,to the post on the solenoid that should come live with the key,if it starts then then you likely need an ignition switch if not you need the solenoid.

I have got a Craftsman model 917.270821 19.5 electric start 42" mower and cant get it to start I have replaced the starter and had the battery checked and all is good there, but dont seem to be gettin


check the wires from the back of the ignition and also the small wire that connects to the starter, if you get a 12v test light check each wire individually by holding the test light on the wire and have somebody turn the key, the test light should come on if the power is going through the wire.
If there is no power the ignition may need replacing
