I do not believe there is a manual available to the public for troubleshooting, however, you have at least 3 switches to tell the mower to stop when blades are engaged or clutch pedal released.

Seat switch
pedal switch
mower engage switch


The pedal and mower lever switches are identical, and have two sides, one for starting, one for blades turning. One side can fail. The pedal switch is on the frame very close to the pivot point of the pedal/shaft. The mower switch will be under the dash close to the bottom of the lever.

1) Locate and inspect the switches for broken or pinch wires, switch housing, or loose mounting, and how each lever or pedal engages the swtich.


2) This is a picture of the wiring so that you can get a better idea of location.

Mower won't start


If you have jumper cables or a jump box you can put the positive lead on the hot wire running to the starter and the ground to any clean (unpainted) surface on the mower and the starter will get power. Place your key in the on position and the unit should start if it is getting fuel.

ITurn key, clicking sound, no turn over


If it won't crank over, it's a problem in the starting circuit, not the ignition circuit. Check your battery and starter for clean, tight connections. Listen for that click to see if it comes from the starter solenoid on the starter-maybe have someone try to start it while you watch and listen under the hood. If the click is from the solenoid (and not from the starter relay), then the starter is not getting full battery power to crank (bad connection), or the starter needs to come off and be tested.
If the click is from the starter relay, you could pull off the little purple wire to the starter solenoid and see if it has 12 volts when the key is in start position. If you have power there in cranking position on the switch, the solenoid is bad or the starter may be the problem-again, it will have to come off for testing. If you have no power at the solenoid in cranking position, the circuit from the ignition switch to the solenoid is not working. The start relay and the neutral safety switch (or clutch switch if manual transmission) are in the starting circuit from ignition switch to the starter solenoid. Good luck.

Want start or turn over


Hello,
My name is Dane and I am going to assist you in solving your problem. However, I would ask that you do one check for me before we go to the seat switch procedure. Please find the starter solenoid on your mower. Make sure that the 2 large cables (1 coming from the battery and 1 going to the starter) are clean and tight. Make sure that your 1 (possibly 2) wires going from your switch to your solenoid are also clean and secure. Use a volt meter on DC volts, or a test light and check the small lead on the solenoid and make sure that when the parking brake is on, transmission in neutral, and the Deck PTO is off, that you are getting 12VDC when the key switch is turned to the start position. If you have a 2-wire system, 1 of them is for ground only. 1 of the 2 wires should get 12VDC. If you get 12VDC at the small terminal of the solenoid, but no power to your starter, the solenoid is bad.

But you probably have a problem with the seat safety switch on your lawn mower. The seat safety switch makes sure that if you are ever thrown from your mower, the engine will die.

You should check under the seat of your mower and locate a small square box with normally 2 wires connected to the end of it. While looking at the switch, press down on the back of your seat and make sure your seat is activating the switch. If not, you must get the switch correctly positioned so it makes contact and pushes the button. If you found nothing wrong there, go to the next step.

Make sure the 2 wires are connected and the wiring is in good shape. Disconnect the wires from the switch and make sure there isn't any corrosion on the terminals of the switch or the connector. After you have done this, reconnect the switch and try again to see if the mower will start.

If not, disconnect the switch again and place a jumper wire between the 2 prongs of the connector and tape them so they will not ground out on the frame. Start your mower and see if it operates correctly. If so, you have got a bad seat safety switch and it needs to be replaced. This was only a troubleshooting procedure. You should never operate a mower with this switch disconnected, because you could be seriously injured. Go buy a new switch and replace it. You will need the make, model and serial number of the mower in order to get parts. I hope I've helped! Thank you! Dane

There is a small chance that either your clutch/brake safety switch or your PTO safety switch could also be at fault. Normally they won't go bad, but will just get out of posistion so that when you activate the clutch/brake they won
