Either the igniton is bad or the wires are backwards. You can bypass the ignition and touch the wires together to see if the solenoid turns. You can also use an ohmmeter/voltmeter to check the current.

I have a MTD ride-on about 3 years old which has an electrical problem. When trying to start the mower the engine doesn't crank. I can hear a "clicking" noise from below the seat. I would have thought this...


If you know that the battery is good, then it is the Magneto, (This is the part responsible for recharging your battery as you use the mower.)
However, your battery may be bad and no longer receiving a charge. Take it to a local auto parts store and they can test it for free.

Good Luck!

How do I know which post is "in from battery" and "out to starter"? Thanks.


Just guess and hook up the two heavy wires. If it doesn't work, reverse them. You won't hurt anything. BUT---Make sure you have removed one cable from the battery (either one) before making or removing connections to the solenoid.
good luck

Starting problems with my cub cadet 2166 lawn mower? Battery is good, not turning over, sometimes it clicks? I can jump start but it is a pain. I have taken this to a dealer last year for this problem....


If it works when jump started, then I would suspect a bad battery or lose or corroded connection. check wires from battery to starter relay also known as solenoid to starter,if it is making a click,the ignition is most likely ok . safety start switch is ok ,I still suspect Battery..can you have it load tested or try a known good one?PS if above test OK, then starter or starter solenoid /relay.Hope this helped you fix it. please let us know if this helped.thank you.

Mower will not start, battery cgarged up but onlhy


Check all the wiring connections on the starting system. Start at the battery. Both posts. Then, check where the ground goes to the body of the tractor. Make sure it's not rusty and making a good connection. Check the wire from the battery to the solenoid. If worse comes to worse, you can take a jumper cable and go from the battery + side and jump right to the starter post where an electrical cable connects. This will let the engine turn over, but make sure you have the mower in neutral and brakes set, with blades OFF!

Ride on mower mtd will not start


Use a jumper cable from the battery to the post on the starter where the wire from the solonoid connects, if it spools up normal its the cable to the starter motor, if it continues to turn slow remove the starter and clean up the places where the starter and engine case contact each other (to ensure a good ground). If none of these solutions correct the issue the starter could be dragging and need to be replaced.
