Hello Sidejobbob,

Depending on the VINTAGE of your motor...
Pointless ignition or ignition points are a single element...
check it out...

Move on to your coil... (check battery & ground
(nothing more than a transformer))...
I recommend a SPARK TESTER... (see below)
But a helpful neighbor can correctly hold the
HIGH-VOLTAGE close to any ground (observe spark
(or better... jump & howl with each spark)).

Of course the plug must be clean & dry...
fuel fresh & flowing = ENGINE RUNNING.

3 X (BLAH)... Happily ever after.

What could cause my engine not to start and just make a tick-tick-tick noise when I turn the key?


Sounds like the electronic fuel pump. Could have a bad starter or solenoid. If battery is good, could also be igniter box. Are you getting spark, if you are then probably not igniter.

John deere model240 mower will not start. Have replaced coil and still not getting spark at the plug . Engine turns over strong


Only option left.... 12 volts feeding coil is not there. The ignition key applys the 12 volts to the coil in the "Run" and "Start" positions. Verify 12 volts at input to coil and then (if needed) follow wire back to key and confirm voltage there....and (if needed) follow input wire to key from battery. One of those critters is open - since you have already confirmed the coil/spark plug wire is not at fault.

Poulan Pro riding lawnmower 42" 18.5 hp 6 speed It mowed fine. Would not start when I wanted to mow again. Turns starter a little, but not enough to start. Recharged battery--same condition existed. ...


Replace the battery. Even though the battery may say it's good, it doesn't have enough of cranking amps. Go purchase a battery with 350 cranking amps. This will fix your problem. The battery power isn't enough to kick the starter completely up to turn the engine.

Craftsamen 18.5 hp battery keeps draining


Either the battery is not being recharged when the engine is running or there is a current drain when stopped. If you are not knowledgeable about electrical tests you can check for current drain by disconnecting the battery negative cable when not running. If the battery stays charged then you need to find the current drain. To check for no charge when running, turn on the headlights with the key on but engine stopped. Start the engine and see if they become somewhat brighter. If brighter, the charging system works. If not, there is a problem in the charging system which needs to be confirmed with a voltmeter.
