with switch off try crossing out the solenoid. take an old screwdriver and place it on the two metal contacts jetting out from the solenoid usually by the battery or close to the ignition. if strarter engages when this is donr replace solenoid. if not replace starter. hope this helps.

SOURCE: Ride on will not start. B&S motor.

Logic would dictate that the starter motor is burning out, drawing far too much current, and that the current overheated the solenoid and toasted it. Now the starter is almost a short circuit and while it spins it has no power. A spendy part to be sure. Perhaps you can find a used one from your friendly neighborhood repair guy.
A compression release is found on old diesel's, but not on gas engines.
Starters can fail from cranking on them for extended periods. They are designed to handle short periods of use, maybe 20 seconds on followed by several minutes (like 15) off. If you have had starting problems and kept cranking to get it going that would explain the fried starter.

SOURCE: Riding mower won't start from key switch

Do you have power to the switch? This is the only thing that jumps out at me, as you already did the right things.
Check that. I bet it'll get you going!

How do I fix an electrical problem with a 2000 chevy tracker


There are fusible links, usually located near the battery attached to the big red cable, or near the starter motor and again attached to the big main battery wire.

Lawn trc murray 17.5 hp 42in cut


my specialty,but,you didnt post what the problem is,so,here goes,if it wont start,it is probably a bad safety switch,take the small black wire off of the coil,if it starts,then its a safety switch,if it doesnt then it is the coil,if it only clicks with a charged battery,it is the solenoid,turn on your key and short between the two big bolts on it if it starts it is bad,if you need a belt,i will need the numbers under the seat,otherwise i will try to find them for you,i will post a user manual for you here, Murray 425607x52A 42 34 Lawn Tractor Parts

2005 chrysler 300 key turns and it just clicks or does not do nothing


If you turn key to "RUN" position and your getting power to all accessories such as windows, radio wiper etc. then your most likely looking at a starter motor issue. When turning the key to "START" and you hear a slight click but keep turning it several times and it finally cranks over then the contacts inside the starter are not making good contact so as you continue to turn to the start position, it turns slightly until it gets good contact and finally spins the starter.
If your mechanically inclined you could take it apart and clean the contacts on the armature otherwise just cheaper to replace it.

I have a 2000 jeep grand cherokee limited edition 4.7 liter V8 2wd. Recently it has just died whilst driving on the highway 40mph city driving. It just died quickly and all the gauges went dead like...


The first thing I would check is to make sure battery is securely tied down, cables are connected, and in good shape. Sounds basic but it has caused this problem for many of us.
