Check the inline fuse coming off the battery side of the solenoid. If that's good, check that there is power to the wire that plugs into the bottom of the solenoid when you turn the key to start (with the brake locked down). If there is, the solenoid needs to be replaced. That's probably as far as you'll have to go.

check switch for corrosion make sure all post male and the female plug are clean. Check power to switch with 12 volt test light if you have power to switch check your soilinoid there is one wire that activates your selenoid to send power to starer. .i would guess bad selenoid.

How to change the oil in my troy built pont where is the drain plug

Have a riding Troy Built that just quit. Will not start. Tested battery, it's good. Has gas. Any suggestions?

Sounds like your electronic ignition has gone bad. Usually when they start going bad you can let the engine cool and it will restart. In your case, apparantly it gave no warning. Check it by unscrewing the spark plug, leave the lead wire hooked to it, placing the spark end of the plug against the head. Try to turn the engine over and see if there is any spark jumping from the end of the plug to the metal. If not, it's the electronic ignition. But be sure the plug you are using is good.
