SOURCE: I have Black and decker electric lawn mower does not start

one of the problems i found with electric detectors was that they do not tell you if there is a break in the neutral cable so you could have a break there,another problem is that the levers can break inside the cover giving the impression that it should work but is not making contact with the switch ,hope this helps

SOURCE: Toro Lawn Mower Electric Start Won't Engage

you'll need to pull the starter. It sound like your Bendick's is bad. that's the upper gear drive assay. the only other res ion would be, low power to the starter, and not receiving an acquit amount of amp to reach the rpm's it needs. good luck

Craftman 18 hp won't start with key


Check Battery. If headlight equipped turn key to headlight on position and see if headlights are lit. No light dead battery dead tractor,

Charge battery. If after charging weak or no start forget the battery and get new, Life of battery is two to three years,

If battery good make sure that parking brake set and blades are not engaged. Safety lockout will prevent tractor from cranking. The tracker has a safety interlock on the seat that requires a body warm or cold sitting on the seat if the parking brake is not set. The seat switch is known to fail. Try bouncing on the seat?

OK if battery OK and seat is sat or park brake set we can assume the safety interlock circuit is disabling the start circuit.

With key my riding lawn mower does not start, not even crank. Nothing happened.


Are you positive that the battery is fully charged? If so check for current reaching the starter motor. If current is there then it appears that the starter motor is no good. If no current reaches motor it is possible the ignition switch is no good.

Why won't the starter motor engage?


Disconnect both ends of the wire and clean them with sandpaper. Also clean the battery (+ and -) starter and relay terminals. You may need to replace the relay.

My Craftsman 16 hp and 42 battery not charging is it normal?


get mower started and check the charging voltage at battery. it should be at least 13.5 at battery.check cables to battery and the inline charging fuse, its located somewhere in charging system.if its charging, but battery is still dead. it could be a bad battery. or alternator. . Examine the lawn mower electrical system by starting the lawn mower up, and then removing the battery. If the lawn mower turns off after the battery is disconnected, the lawn mower electrical system is the culprit.
its a good possibility that the battery is bad if it has been in use for 4-5 years.
check the fuses first. good-day !

Hello - I have craftsman 42 inch deck mower with a kohlar engine that does not start. Battery appears fine, when I turn it - it clicks with the head lights turning on. Ang ideas on how to get it started?...


With the key in the run position, using a jumper cable, jump from the positive post on battery to terminal on starter motor. If it runs you have a solenoid or ignition switch problem. (assuming all electrical connections are clean). If it doesn't crank the battery is the culprit.

I have a craftsman electric key start lawn mower. I used the key start twice and have charged it after each mowing, but now the key start won't turn it over.


the battery probably got over charge & shorted the cells the tractor should charge the battery as it runs if it was equiped with electric start the battery charger more than likely over charged it killing the battery

Battery discharing light is on


Does your tractor have electric clutch ? With the switch turned off try removing positive battery cable you then try touching cable to post if you get a spark you have a short in system you could also charge battery and remove positive cable from battery over night to see if battery stays up to check battery,you also have a alternater under flywheel to charge battery you should be getting an output of about 14 volts most likely not the problem
