Question about Troy Bilt 5.5hp Self Propelled Mower
I just replaced my motor on my lawn mower ( briggs and straton 17 hsp overhead) and now it won't crank. It was clicking and I thought that it was the selinoid switch but, once I replaced that it won't even click now. The starter has no fire and the engine won't start.The battery has plenty fire I tried to jump it off but, no luck. The flywheel works fine. I put the hot jumper cable on the starter bolt and no fire.This motor used to work by getting jumped off by my car.could it be the starter? Or do I have something wired wrong?Thanks for any advice.
My snapper riding mower will spin but will not start. It was o.k. when I parked it a week ago. Now it won't start 28115BV

If you put hot lead from battery jumper cables on starter post and ground jumper cable to motor frame and got no reaction your starter is bad.

Sounds like you have two problems. If the solenoid does not click, either is it not working, or the low current circuit (small wire(s) to the solenoid) are open somewhere, assuming the battery is good. This could be a safety switch or loose wire. If you connect battery voltage directly to the bolt on the starter (for example with a jumper cable) and it does not turn, the starter is not working. If there is no spark on the starter bolt, it most likely is the brushes in the starter. They could be stuck in the holders or worn out. Replacing the brushes is much less expensive than replacing the starter. Remove the end plate on the starter that is closest to the wire bolt to inspect. If there is spark on the starter bolt but it does not turn, the shaft may be frozen (especially if you haven't used it for a while). This can be fixed by removing the starter end plates and putting a drop or two of engine oil on the shaft after cleaning up any rust or corrosion.
