SOURCE: mower sometimes will not start. Has new battery

You have to use a volt meter and test the ignition circuit to find out where the voltage stops. If you have 12 volts going in to and out of the switch, then switch is good

SOURCE: My craftsman 15.5HP kohler riding mower turns over

Try cleaning or better yet, replacing the spark plug. Depending on age and how your tractor was maintained, there are other possible causes.

  • Gummed up fuel system
  • dirty fuel filter
  • defective or misaligned armature/magneto (part that causes your plug to spark, igniting the air/fuel mixture, thus starting the engine)
  • throttle linkage/cable problems
  • low oil level. Some Kohler engines use a low oil shut down sensor which won't allow the engine to run or start to avoid internal damage.
  • Mechanical engine problems
I hope you find this solution helpful. Please rate it thanks for using Fixya!

With key my riding lawn mower does not start, not even crank. Nothing happened.


Are you positive that the battery is fully charged? If so check for current reaching the starter motor. If current is there then it appears that the starter motor is no good. If no current reaches motor it is possible the ignition switch is no good.

Could be, but test each item with your tester. Test key switch (12V in and 12 V out when turned to start., operator present switch 12V in 12V out (seat) Clutch switch, etc. till finally you test for 12V on the small terminal on the starter solonoid. Happy testing!

Have a craftsman 17.5 hp bought 7 or 8 years ago. Has "LT 1000" on its engine cover. Went to start it. Turned the key in the ignition, "nothing happened, checked battery, appear,o.k. The battery guage...


Yes, you may hear a small click when the key is placed in the run position. It is the fuel solenoid (on the carburetor) activating.

If it is a large click, then that is the pto clutch activating (as in the blades are ON) and that will not allow the engine to start.

Sometimes when a battery is low or connections at the battery are dirty, you will hear a click, that is the solenoid activating, but the battery voltage is low enough that the starter will not turn. Sometimes this condition has a chatter.

Easiest test for this situation is jump start from you automobile, or charge the battery for an hour, and see what happens from there.

Where is the fuse for Craftsman 17.5 HP 42 Riding Mower


I'm not sure the solenoid/relay would even energize at 10 volts (so you may not hear the clidking).

The battery is essentially dead at 10 volts -- try charging again for 4 hours or so, and then measure the voltage.

If it's not up near 12 volts, you have a dead cell and need a new battery.
