No, It sounds like you solenoid is bad. Just because it clicks does not mean current is going thru it. A Volt meter or test light can be used to confirm.

I have 2000 john deere 420 and it wont turn over


The starting circuit is dependent upon the clutch safety ans PTO being off. Here are some steps to take:
1. Ensure battery is fully charged
2. Turn key on and turn PTO on then back off. Listen for clunk
3. Press clutch in fully and turn key to start position. If still no sound at all, hold key in start position and move clutch foot up and down, listening for solenoid click. If click but no crank, starter or solenoid or battery cable connection is bad. Start by wiggling cables, looking for any looseness. Next check solenoid and cables. If that doesn't fix it, starter or solenoid may be bad. There may be a fuse in the circuit. Check them out also.
if it cranks but doesn't start, you have a fuel or ignition problem. Good luck. Let us know what you find

If you can cause the engine to turn over by shorting out the solenoid then it is OK.Your problem is probably that there is no power getting to the solenoid from the ignition switch. Connect a test light to the control wire at the solenoid and turn the key, if it doesn't light then follow the wire back to the switch looking for a break in the wire.The wire casing may not be broken while the wire may be open inside so feel for soft spots where wire may be broken. Check your ignition switch is sending power to this wire when in start position, the switch may be faulty.

The starter solenoid sounds to be bad. Follow the + cable from the starter and it will lead to the solenoid. This is usually about $10. The battery produces power to the solenoid which then produces power to kick the starter over. The clicking is the contacts in the solenoid you are hearing.

Check to see if your fuel solenoid on the bottom of the carburetor is working. To do this, turn the key on and off a couple of times and listen for a "clicking" sound or with someone else turning the key, hold the solenoid between your thumb and fingers and see if you "feel" it clicking on and off

Craftsmanlawn tractor will not start


Check for voltage at the solenoid when the key is in the start position.
The wire from the ignition should send 12 volts to the solenoid when the key is in the start position.

If it does not, you probably have a bad ignition switch.

(usually caused by water/corrosion)

If you are jumping the solenoid and it cranks but wont start leave the key in the on position and give it a try. Try replacing the solenoid and the wires conecting it to the battery.
