Open Question

Hello I have a Craftsman Riding Lawn Mower Model # 917.289.244. It is having starting issues. It will turn over, very slowly almost like the battery is dead. I have replaced said battery. I have had the battery tested it has 12.6 volts and 220 cold cranking amps. I have 12 volts at the solenoid. If I jump the solenoid with a screw driver I get the same results like the battery is dieing. I've pulled the starter and tested it with the lawn mower battery and it seems to engage when jumped. The only way I can get the mower to start is jumping it off the battery in my truck. Any suggestions? Please Help!

If you turn engine over by hand, is it hard to turn at the start? If yes, adjust the valves.

Riding lawn mower stopped working, now it just makes a clicking noise when you turn the key, the grass was pretty high when this happened...did the engine blow?


clean the battery posts for one, and make sure the unit has a full 12 volts in the battery ,, these units charge slowly as it is, and if the battery gets to low, the machine will just quit, you try and start them, and all you get is a click

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.

Motor won't start and mower very difficult to push


is there a puddle of oil under where it made the clunking sound, that would mean the engine is blown. another thing to check is to see if the motor bolts that hold down the motor came loose and is hanging down there by keeping the pullys from moving right..good luck
