Do you have power from the switch to the starter solenoid ? What you should have is a battery lead going to the starter relay / solenoid. a battery lead coming from the relay / solenoid to the starter and a 12 or 14 gauge wire coming from the switch to the relay solenoid. Depending on the age of the machine this wire may actually go direct to the solenoid or it may have to go through a couple of safety switches. the first thing I would check is make sure you have power coming out of the starter switch to the start circuit. The terminal on the switch is usually marked with an s for starter / solenoid. If you have power coming out from here then trace this wire to either a safety switch or relay solenoid, keep checking for 12 vdc until you dont have power and you will either find the problem or the bad part... hope this helps you

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.

I have a craftsman riding mower model 247.288810. While cutting my lawn the engine all stalled and would not start anymore. I changed the spark plug and the battery is new, what could it be?


there are 3 safety switches,clutch,deck and seat, Craftsman 247288810 Lawn Tractor Parts
take the cover off so u can access the coil,unhook the black wire from the coil,not spark plug cable,try to start it,if it starts then a safety switch is bad,if it doesnt,then jump the solenoid,if it starts then it is the seat or clutch switch,if you want to bypass safety switches,connect a switch to the ground and coil

Spark and gas??? Must have both. Pull spark plug wire and check for spark. If you have spark, check gap on spark plug. Check the bowl on carburetor. loosen bowl screw to see if gas is coming out. If you have gas coming out, carb needs to be taken off and cleaned or rebuilt.

Cant get my lawn tractor to start


IT COULD BE IGNITION SWITCH IS BAD, I REPLACED ONE ON A CRAFTSMAN THAT DID THIS,BUT ALSO COULD BE A SAFETY SWITCH IS NOT CLOSED PREVENTING STARTER FROM OPERATING,---WITH THE IGNITION SET TO ON CROSS THE TERMINALS ON SOLENOID AND SEE IF IT STARTS THE TRACTOR RUNNING, IF IT FAILS TO RUN ITS PROBALY THE IGNITION SWITCH THEN.
