Re: lawn mower tractor doesnt start
Sounds like you have a bad connection on your battery or on your starter. check out the battery first. take wires off of it and clean them good. then make sure and put them back on securely. Try this and let me know if it works. Thanks.

battery has a low charge or the starting gear on the starter is bad. just remove cover and see if the starter ingages and cranks the fly wheel. look at the gear itself to make sure the teeth are good ,if not replace the plastic gear. takes 5 min.
No, it sounds to me like it is one of the safety switches is a bit corroded, along with a battery that may not be fully charged, you are not getting enough voltage to turn the engine over. What I would first do it disconnect the battery, take apart all connections of the cables, where it mounts to solenoid, where ground cable connects to the tractor, etc. Then put everything back on. Charge the battery, or jump the tractor to get it started and let it run a bit, which will charge the battery. You may need to check wire connections that go to various safety switches, too. Under the seat, where it connects to the transmission, etc. This does not sound like a big problem at all.
the battery probably got over charge & shorted the cells the tractor should charge the battery as it runs if it was equiped with electric start the battery charger more than likely over charged it killing the battery
