SOURCE: riding mower will not start

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.

how old is your plug? try cleaning and regapping it or replacing it at any rate make sure it is gapped correctly also make sure there is no rust dust or debris is on flywheel or coil also the flywheel keyway does more than hold the flywheel in place it servs as a timing pin and sometimes the slightest wear on it can cause the machine to start hard but otherwise run great good luck hope you find the problem.

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.

SOURCE: mtd riding mower won't start clicking noise

Take some sort of 12V tester and measure voltage on the small terminal on the starter to ground. You should get close to 12 V with key turned. If you see the 12 V, test the incoming large battery terminal. It should also be close to 12V. IF that's ok, check the large terminal on the starter. If you have 12V here, then check for bad ground connection. If any of these are not 12V remove cable and clean connection. How are you sure the battery is ok?

First of all check the battery is fully charged.
If OK check the battery terminals are clean and tight.
Check that the brake is on, gearbox in neutral and disengaged, mower disengaged and you are sitting on the seat. Many mowers have safety features to prevent starting unless these conditions are met. If it still fails to start, check the starting circuit, including the switch and the solenoid. Still no luck? Check the wiring to make sure there is not a short circuit in an of the starting wiring.

Blades disengaged ? In neutral ? Brake depressed ? Sitting in seat ? All of these things have safety switches that will not allow mower top start .

What could cause my engine not to start and just make a tick-tick-tick noise when I turn the key?


Sounds like the electronic fuel pump. Could have a bad starter or solenoid. If battery is good, could also be igniter box. Are you getting spark, if you are then probably not igniter.

My MTD Yard machines riding mower won't start.


Probably dead gas from sitting too long. Dump it out & put in fresh gas.Could have moisture in it. Pull out spark plug & crank it over several times after putting gas & let it sit a while to dry out or blow it out with compressed air. It should go.

Will not start


I have a feeling what happened was you shorted out the ignition switch, somehow. If you can get behind the switch without much trouble, try to jump the wires together 2 at a time just to see if it will jump the , lights, starter, ignition, one of the 3. or get a voltage tester, it will do the same thing. There is a fuse on there in the line, sits next to the battery. check it. Hope this helps,

Mower will not start. Makes a loud fast clicking noise when the key is turned.


Loud ticking usually indicates near dead battery, take it out and charge it. If it still ticks you may need to replace it as they are only good for a few years.

Husqvarna zero turn mower won't start


Usually if all you hear is a clicking noise, it is the solenoid itself that has gone bad...if you can jump the solenoid and the mower turns over, it is the solenoid.
