Take a screwdriver and firmly touch the positive to neg. on starter...if that turns the engine over...then its the selonoid or a bad connection......possibly could be the ground on the batt.

If the battery is now fully charged, the first thing I'd suggest is to remove the battery terminals and check for corrosion or nastiness that is inhibiting the flow of current.

If its a reasonably new rider, there will be safety switches under the seat, so you have to be sitting ON the machine before it will allow an attempt. It will also have a safety switch in the blade circuit so make sure the blades are switched to the off position before attempting.

My money is on corrosion though.

BATTERY HAS FULL CHARGE WHEN I TRY TO START IT IT DOES NOT TURN OVER NO CLICKING NOTHING CAN SOMEONE HELP ME. ARIENS 1740


Check to see if the solenoid is getting power. On the solenoid there are 3 wires. Two big, one from the battery, the other going to the starter. The 3rd wire is what activates the solenoid. Using a test light or volt meter. See if its getting power on the small wire when you turn the key. If no power, ignition switch, safety switches or fuses. If you are getting power replace the solenoid. If you have 4 wires. Test the two smaller ones.

Turn the key for electric start,nothing happens


If you never used the starter,You need to have it checked, possible that it i froze up. Or brushes in starter arn't making contact. Also check connections. Good Luck

Hi please check all the wiring connections as you must have disconected the power soarce feeding the key switch to the starter.
Start around the engine then the battery, check the seat switch , brake/ clutch pedal , & the mower deck switches .
One wire is just disconnected or the connection is broken so check all connections by unconecting & reconnecting them as it may even be a corroded wire that has been disturbed when being cleaned.
