If it's not even beginning to attempt to engage the engine, it sounds like one of the safety switches on the unit may have malfunctioned. Those dead man switches will completely shut down the unit and not even allow it to start. Check to make sure nothing is engaged that could have tripped on of these.

My craftsman riding mower wont start when i turn the key all i hear is a click ,it has a new starter


Terry,

Sounds as if your battery is drained. Or it also couldbe a the solenoid. You can use a multimeter to test the battery to see if it has the 12v needed to start the engine, also you can use it to test the solenoidto make sure it's relaying the voltage.

If u have a set of jumper cables, u can test by simply hooking them up to another battery source, as in a car battery, and then attach to the mower battery, won't hurt anything..

If you KNOW the starter is good, then it can only be these 2 other things that I have mentioned. Hopefully the starter is not defective...

Hi, if your battery wont charge you will need to replace it and when you do you need to check that the mower is charging by checking the battery voltage with a multimeter while the mower is running. It should be around 14 volts. Regards Phil.

My 12 horse brigs and straton riding mower keeps discharging its self what do i do


"testing" with a fog lamp wont prove anything other than charge state! You need a load tester!
Check the fluid level inside the battery, Your starter may be going bad.

My riding lawn mower won't crank. Battery is good, what could it be


Does it crank but not turn over or it wont do anything? If it wont do anything check under the seat if the seat switch isn't making contact it wont start. Thats a saftey feature.
