Mower won't start

I have an Yard Machine mower with 12.5 hp engine
There is no power when switch is turned to start position. The battery is good and has a full charge on it. I suspect an open circuit somewhere, but not sure where. Any suggestionsa?

Check the terminal from the solenoid to the start switch. It is corroded either there or at the switch. Lightly sand with fine sandpaper and reassemble.

Why won't my yard man briggs and stratton 7.5 hp engine crank


Check for blown fuse if good put a light tester on the starting then turn the key if your tester lights up then you know that the stater is bab if it does not then you do not have power to the shotch. One red wire should have power all the time and the other red wire should have power only when the key is on.

Try this. Disconnect the one single wire going to the solenoid. Use an ohm meter to see if there is 12 volts DC at this wire when you turn the key switch in the start position. If you have voltage then your solenoid is bad and needs to be replaced. If you dont have voltage, check the safety switchs for proper operation.

My Yard Riding Lawn Mower won't start when I turn the key on it just clicks


Click means solenoid has enough battery power but maybe not enough battery power for the armature of the starter to spin, it may be low battery or bad solenoid contact - inside it, (copper washer and pin), or thirdly it may be the engine is stuck so try to turn it a bit by hand to rule this out. Turning the engine a bit by hand may also free a starter gear that has jammed on the flywheel teeth.

Tecumseh 4.5 hp engine won't start


First thing to check on a Tecumseh; pull the half inch bowl nut (main jet) out of the bottom of the carburetor. Give it a good cleaning with carb cleaner then pay special attention to the teeny tiny hole that is right at the very top of the threads. It's so small you can hardly see it and if it clogs, your mower won't start. Best of luck to you.

YARD MAN 42 '' RIDEING MOWER WON'T START PROBABLY SAFETY PROBLEM


safety switches that all riding mowers seem to have include a seat/brake safety which means that you have to be sitting in the seat or the brake must be engaged for it to start. also there is the blade engaged safety, which means the mower will not start normally with the blades engaged.
if you meet those conditions check the switches themselves
non safety related, do you hear a click or a clunk when you turn the key to the start position, this is the starting coil pulling in to send power from the battery to the engine starter, all safety switches will interupt power from the key switch to the starting coil
if you hear the coil energize and the engine does not start you have low battery voltage or loose connection or some other mechanical problem

Yard machine riding mower will not start


check all of your known safety switches!
Clutch has to be pushed in
seat switch (sit on mower)
blade disengage switch
Finally check your starter soleniod between the battery and the starter and look for fuses and check them out in the process
