A click is a good sign
I'd touch a car jump lead direct from battery +ve to main terminal on starter motor. Just flash on for 2 seconds - It will spark a bit but it should turn the starter motor - regardless of key / solenoid circuitry.
If YES then trace the heavy wiring from batterry to starter via the solenoid and check for tight / non-corroded conections.
If NO then you have a either a faulty/flat battery or a starter motor problem (likely worn brushes - which are cheap to replace)
I doubt you have a ground lead off - because it wouldn't click if that was off!

SOURCE: toro lx425 rider mower wont start

If a small engine wont start its usually one of two problems, its not getting gas, or its not getting spark. easy way to find out if its getting a spark is to remove the plug, put it back back in the connector and just let it hang down while you try to start it. you should see a bright blue spark, if you dont try changing the spark plug. if its getting a spark come back on this site and i'll help you trouble shoot it.

SOURCE: engine drags while trying to start

It may be a problem with the camshaft-compression release. Some of the Briggs & Stratton models had a weak spring on the compression release whis is parts of the camshaft. you may also want tocheck that all wires are clean and tight. Also if it's a over head valve model check the valve clearance.

Hi
Starter drive is stuck. Clean by spraying brake kleen on starter drive and blow drive with air. Might
have to remove starter to clean. Check for missing cogs on starter drive.

SOURCE: mower will not start will make clicking noise. did start at for one minute

Your battery is dead. Replace it.
In the winter keep a smart trickle charger on the battery to prevent it from discharging. Lead/acid batteries lose 1% of their charge per day and are basically junk in 3 months. They have to be kept charged.

just because it wont start doesn't mean your MAGNETO is shot. There could be a short in the ground wire. A damaged high tension lead. Do the tests and figure it out. A magneto can be costly .

Hi steve16092...
You may have MAJOR damage to your motor because of overfilling the oil.
Sometimes you can bend or break a piston rod when the engine is overfilled.
Meanwhile you can check a few other things.
Take your plug out and ground it against the head of the engine with the spark wire attached to it.
You should get a bright blue spark, if not then check your ignition module, it may be faulty.
If you have spark, then try putting a little bit of lighter fluid/or gasoline in the cylinder and reinstall the plug and try to crank it...if it cranks, then you may need to clean/rebuild your carburetor.
Please take time to rate me
