    Might seem obvious, but have you checked/charged the battery? Btw, I've got a cub 682 in perfect running order that I'd love to trade for your single cylinder 1282! Farmergann at hotmail if you're interested :)

Check Under Your Seat to see if your Safety Switch has A Broken Wire Or is Frayed or disconnected. They are designed Not to Start Unless Someone is sitting on it and stop if you get off. If that Wire has a Bare spot It Will Ground out and that's why The Solenoid will Engage But The Starter Will Not.

Why does My Cub Cadet 1282 stops running after 15 minutes and will start again after it cools--30 minutes

It could be a lean condition, meaning the fuel system is dirty. I think this model has points so they will need to replaced or try this. Clean then them with fine sand paper then set them to .020 that may fix your problem.

Solenoid clicks cub cadet lt1045 mower won't start. Has new solenoid, starter battery and spark plug

It is possible the starter safety circuit is triggering. This is an interlock to prevent injury when starting and checks for things like driver not on seat, park brake engaged, etc.
Refer page 12 of the manual available on this site if you do not have one.

Cub Cadet ZTR will not start

Is the blade engagement off? If that is ok, does the solenoid even click when you put the key to start position? If the solenoid doesn't even click check the battery connections and make sure they are good and clean. If the connections are good, are you sure the new battery is fully charged. If the battery sat around for a long time in the store it could need charged. If all that is good and then you don't get the starter solenoid to click when you put the key in start position, then it is either the seat switch, parking brake switch, handle switches, or mower engage switch keeping it from starting. If all that is ok maybe you have a bad starter solenoid. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

I have a Cub cadet LT 1024 which will not start. The solenoid clicks like it is trying and lights will come on but that is only reaction. Battery is brand new and hooked up properly.

solenoid clicks, only tess you the coil is working inside the solenoid. disconnect cable from battery to starter. with ohm meter check for continuty across main terminals of solenoid while holding key to start. if no continuity, solenoid is defective.

try taking an insulated screw driver and jumping across both terminals on the solenoid, if the engine turns over, the solenoid is bad and will need to be replaced
