Husky ride on mower will not start.

Symptoms are no start--battery is OK but there are no lights and the starter will not turn from key. It will turn if jumped to the battery but the engine will not start, 20 HP Kohler on a 42 inch ride on mower by Husqvarna.
Is there a main fuse which might have blown?

Sounds more like a safety switch problem, first verify the seat switch then the mower switcher and make sure it's not in reverse.

When I try to start my 60" Ariens rider all I get is a loud clattering sound. I just replaced the battery 2 months ago. What's wrong with my mower?


Joel, Recheck battery to make sure it has good charge >12 v and all battery and starter wiring,plugs,connections are clean,tight and undamaged. If you remove spark plug and engine spins freely from the key, the engine compression release or valve clearance needs adjusted. It is probable the solenoid or starter is faulty, the starter Bendix/drive may be sticking. If you can, give the starter a couple sharp raps with a hammer or bar and then try to start.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides to help diagnose starting issue. Good luck

John Deere Z225 trouble starting - turning the key to start, you hear the starter engage. The engine trys to turn over but struggles. Sounds like the battery is low. Bought a new battery, charged it...


The symptoms described may indicate a bad starter. First check all connections from the battery to ground and from the battery to starter You may want to have the starter tested at Advance Auto or Auto Zone. It will need to be removed from the mower, and I am not sure if Auto Zone, Advance Auto can test small mower starters. They test the starter under load, so if you remove the starter and hook it up to a battery, it will run probably, but it will not indicate whether the starter is good or bad. It needs to be tested under load. Good luck.....

Cub cadet model 1520 won't start.


Sounds to me like you might be having a problem with either your key switch, or more likely your starter. Although I have never had a starter go out on any riding mower Ive ever had, thats really what is sounds like. On the other hand, I have had many a key switch go bad and they act alot like your symptoms. So I would start at the simplest and work backwards.

Also, make sure blades are disengaged and also they are not bound up on the underside of the mower deck. also check the belt and its not in a bind. These thing could be dragging down your motor keeping it from starting. Let me know if I can help further. Have a Great Day! Good Luck!

Will not start fuse ok battery ok they said try new starter, its ok turn key on hear click Sound sounds llik up at carberator, AMP gauge gos negetive and starter will not ingage, belt for mower is...


I would try to jump the starter. Pos cable on the starter then ground out the neg, it the starter turns over that isnt it. then check the smaller wire going to your soleniod, when you turn your key to the start position it should have power. then check to see if there is power from the battery to your soleniod then with the key turned power from the soleniod to the starter.

Mtd riding mower won't start clicking noise


Take some sort of 12V tester and measure voltage on the small terminal on the starter to ground. You should get close to 12 V with key turned. If you see the 12 V, test the incoming large battery terminal. It should also be close to 12V. IF that's ok, check the large terminal on the starter. If you have 12V here, then check for bad ground connection. If any of these are not 12V remove cable and clean connection. How are you sure the battery is ok?

Had the mower blades engaged and there must have been a safety switch engaged.
