You can check the starter by removing it and using jump cables to the body- and starter terminal to +. still there are the saftey switches in the picture when on the tractor. if you have a bad switch then it also wont start.

My lawn tractor won't start/turn over. Battery is good

There should be a fuse in the circuit to check. The interlock system can be difficult but you will usually have a switch for the seat, PTO lever, neutral, and clutch. Check for loose plugs or wires.

Won't start,the battery needle goes (-) when the key is turn to start

Can you hear the Solenoid click when to try to start? If not, I had the same problem it was the Solenoid. Sears insisted it must be the battery even though it was weak but not dead. Replaced the battery but it still would not work. Replaced the Solenoid and did the trick.

Replacing starter

The gear / part on the starter is commonly called a "bendix" gear, and it rotates into position only when the starter switch is engaged in the "start" position. As soon as you release the switch to the "run" position, the starter' bendix gear drops down so that the engine's flywheel can spin without causing the starter to turn as well. Just re-bolt the unit back to the engine, and reconnect your battery cable.
