When I try to start my 60" Ariens rider all I get is a loud clattering sound. I just replaced the battery 2 months ago. What's wrong with my mower?


Joel, Recheck battery to make sure it has good charge >12 v and all battery and starter wiring,plugs,connections are clean,tight and undamaged. If you remove spark plug and engine spins freely from the key, the engine compression release or valve clearance needs adjusted. It is probable the solenoid or starter is faulty, the starter Bendix/drive may be sticking. If you can, give the starter a couple sharp raps with a hammer or bar and then try to start.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides to help diagnose starting issue. Good luck

My 155c John Deere will not start! Brand new charged battery....I turn the key...nothing(no clicking either). When bypassing it to cellinoid, it starts right up. When I shut off the mower, I have to...


Usually when the key is turned to start position the starter soleniod engages thus applying power to the starter. There are three possible causes to your problem . (1) Check for 12vdc at the terminal on the soleniod when the key is turned to start position, if there is 12vdc at the terminal then the key switch is good. (2) loose or bad cable connection at the soleniod, check connections. (3) bad soleniod -- replace it. generally you will hear a click from the soleniod when the key is turned to start position. Also be sure to check that ALL safety switches are engaged. You may need someone to sit in the drivers seat so that switch will be "made" / engaged. Park Brake is set, mowing blades are "NOT " being engaged, on some mowers if the transmission is in reverse ,even tho the brake is set the mower will not start.

I have 42in toro zero turn. turn the key to crank and all you hear is the sound of an electric motor spinning but mower will not engage and crank


There is a small slined wheel that is plastic which serves to enguage the starter and flywheel.
This is mounted on the end of the starters armiture by a configuration of springs , weights and a small bolt / roll pin.
When the starter turns , centrifigul force is used to raise the plastic splined wheel...
It sounds to me that the splines are all broke off , The mechanism that causes the splined wheel to blossom , or the alignment of the starter has been set off somehow.

YARD MAN 42 '' RIDEING MOWER WON'T START PROBABLY SAFETY PROBLEM


safety switches that all riding mowers seem to have include a seat/brake safety which means that you have to be sitting in the seat or the brake must be engaged for it to start. also there is the blade engaged safety, which means the mower will not start normally with the blades engaged.
if you meet those conditions check the switches themselves
non safety related, do you hear a click or a clunk when you turn the key to the start position, this is the starting coil pulling in to send power from the battery to the engine starter, all safety switches will interupt power from the key switch to the starting coil
if you hear the coil energize and the engine does not start you have low battery voltage or loose connection or some other mechanical problem
