SOURCE: nothing happens when you turn on the lawn mower

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.

SOURCE: Hello - I have craftsman

With the key in the run position, using a jumper cable, jump from the positive post on battery to terminal on starter motor. If it runs you have a solenoid or ignition switch problem. (assuming all electrical connections are clean). If it doesn't crank the battery is the culprit.

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...

Why won't my craftsman mower turn over/ start ?


Check your battery. The clicking you hear is likely the relay not getting enough voltage to close and latch and is just toggling.

IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED THAT YOU JUMP START YOUR MOWER WITH YOUR CAR AS YOUR CAR BATTERY IS LIKELY A HIGHER VOLTAGE AND COULD CAUSE YOUR MOWER BATTERY TO FAIL. CATASTROPHICALLY.

Why Craftsman riding mower wont turn over & only makes click sound when turn key on??


1.try jumping the battery with your car battery. I have had same issue in the past with a brand new battery.
2. Try spraying starter fluid into the carb while cranking. If it starts or at least tries to start (assuming cranking is fixed), you have a fuel problem. Again, when I first tried to fire my Used mower, had to use starter fluid to get it to start the first time, but never since.

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.

If you are jumping the solenoid and it cranks but wont start leave the key in the on position and give it a try. Try replacing the solenoid and the wires conecting it to the battery.
