    Tried starting lawn tractor, I can hear the starter turning, however it will not crank

  • Bill 53 Dec 23, 2008

    Tried to jump start engine by connecting jumper cables to battery. Again the starter is turning, nothing else is happening.

    i have a similar problem. I have a new battery but my lights wont come on when the switch is turned and the starter doesn't seem to be making any effort to turn the engine. Is there a fuse that might have been damaged? I at least had lights before the battery was replaced.

Its posible that the bendix drive on the starter is sticking. You may be able to free it up with a squirt of WD40.
The bendix drive allows a gear to move forward and engage the flywheel to turn the engine over. If WD40 is not succesful then the starter will have to be removed to examine and determine why the bendix is not engaging. Sometimes rust is the problem.

What most likely happened is the diaphram in the carberator has burst. It is a simple fix if you take your time, use reliable resources and be patient. The parts can be picked up at the local hardware store.

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