Check spark plug after you remove it and hook it up, lay it on engine and crank it. Make sure there is a good strong spark. If there is spark, then that is not the issue. If there is NO spark, the the coil will need to be replaced.

Check carberator to make sure it is getting fuel. They do tend to build up with gumm. and need to be removed and thouroughly cleaned with solvent and carb cleaner.

Mtd riding mower won't start clicking noise


Take some sort of 12V tester and measure voltage on the small terminal on the starter to ground. You should get close to 12 V with key turned. If you see the 12 V, test the incoming large battery terminal. It should also be close to 12V. IF that's ok, check the large terminal on the starter. If you have 12V here, then check for bad ground connection. If any of these are not 12V remove cable and clean connection. How are you sure the battery is ok?

Starting problem


Probably just dirty. Unhook battery first, then take the nuts and wires off the solenoid (remember which wire went to which post), clean the two post with a wire brush and put back together. Rehook battery. If that doesn't work, buy new one. Their about $40.00 and up.

Mower will not start, battery cgarged up but onlhy


Check all the wiring connections on the starting system. Start at the battery. Both posts. Then, check where the ground goes to the body of the tractor. Make sure it's not rusty and making a good connection. Check the wire from the battery to the solenoid. If worse comes to worse, you can take a jumper cable and go from the battery + side and jump right to the starter post where an electrical cable connects. This will let the engine turn over, but make sure you have the mower in neutral and brakes set, with blades OFF!

Mtd lawn mower trys to start as soon as i hook up battery


Sounds like the starter solenoid is stuck in the start position. Tap it sharply and see if it still does it when you hook up the battery. You'll probably have to replace the solenoid.
