A solenoid isn't likely. If you want to test, you can try jumping the two big terminals on the solenoid and see if it turns faster. If not, you know it isn't the solenoid. Next thing you'll want to check out is the battery connections, and the connection from the solenoid to the starter. These are more likely to cause your problem due to poor conductivity, or loose connections. Take each one loose, and clean it up with a wire brush, then put them back on. Make sure you check the one that hooks to the starter itsself, as the vibration from the mower likes to shake them loose. If you have checked all the connections, and you still haven't found the problem, you'll want to check the starter, as it could be getting weak.

Check your seat, drive safety switches. Can you turn the engine with jumper cables attached to the starter? It won't start, but should turn over, one of your safety switches is not working.
