Mower won't start. Makes clicking noise.


Check the battery terminal connections for cleanliness and that they are free of corrosion. If the contact is corroded, this is what the clicking would be from.
The battery could be charged, but if the connection is dirty, the power won't be able to engage the solenoid properly.
Hope this helps.

Won't start,the battery needle goes (-) when the key is turn to start


Can you hear the Solenoid click when to try to start? If not, I had the same problem it was the Solenoid. Sears insisted it must be the battery even though it was weak but not dead. Replaced the battery but it still would not work. Replaced the Solenoid and did the trick.

The starter itself may be bad. Take the starter off, connect it to the battery on the mower with jumping cables + to + and - to battery and ground other to starter. It should spin as if it was going to start the mower. You may have to try different places on the starter for a good ground. If the starter spins, then it's not the starter, but binding. If it was electrical such as seat switch or blade switch it would still turn over but not start. With the starter clicking, it sounds to me that the solenoid is fine.

Poulan Riding Mower won't crank, battery OK.


Forget the safety switches for now.The first thing I would check would be the fuse. It will be located on the battery side of the solenoid. Follow your positive battery cable to the solenoid. There will be a small red wire coming off of that post with an inline fuse. If the fuse is good, check your solenoid. There are two wires plugged into spade terminals at the bottom of the solenoid. Unplug the one that is insulated, the other one is a ground. Hook a test light from that wire to ground. When you turn the key to start (with the brake pedal held down), it should light. If it lights, your solenoid is bad. If not, then you can start looking at switches. Probably will be one of the two. Hope this helps. Dwain
