Question about Garden
When you jump around solenoid starter kicks in. Won't turn over with key. Solenoid doesn't come in. Checked all safety switches, all ok. New ignition switch, new solenoid. Any ideas on what problem might be?

SOURCE: Ignition does not crank engine
If it is cranking over it should start. If you are just jumping the solenoid then you have a switch problem.If it is just plain not starting then you need a complete tuneup. It a process of elimination, you need air, gas, and a spark. Then it will run.donnyb60

you forgot to take the carb off and check the float to see if it's bad if its a can you will get gas in it making it havey so it stops runing

Depend on the make and model of the mower....the safety switches usually are the seat, pto, shift lever, brake and clutch. If any of these are bad...the switch won't work. Can you cross the starter and have it start? With these safety switches....you can't just disconnect them to bypass. Most require a loop and running a wire from one side of the switch to the other will usually help you find the one causing the issue.
The solenoid comes in about 4 different models. Some ground to the frame and some don't. Not all key switches are the same either...we stock over 25 different switches and I could show you 7 that look identical but are different.
Personally I would start testing from the starter and work my way back...starter, solenoid, safety switches, starter switch. www.nnyparts.com

measure with a valt meter and see what your voltage is at the battery . now measure what you have for volts at the soleoid. then check to see if you are getting 12 volts to the single peg on your soleoid, usually a whitwe wire. If your not getting voltage to this wire you probably have a safety switch problem. If you are getting voltage here check to make sure you are getting voltage at the starter motor. If your getting voltage there you may have a bad ground at the starter motor or the whole motor may need to be grounded to the frame.
