Question about Briggs & Stratton Garden
OK, mower won't turn over, but I need more info as I'm not that repair-savy.
Where am I testing voltage? You said at the solenoid, does that mean remove the solenoid and clip to the wire that feeds it?
Also, that solenoid gets warm after turning the key several times. This would lead me to think it is getting voltage. I also hear the audible click at the solenoid when the key is turned. Is there a way to test this solenoid?
You are absolutely correct, if you are hearing a clicking sound you are getting voltage.
Take one lead (red or black doesn't matter) of your jumper cables if you have them or a very heavy piece of wire and jump across the 2 large terminals of the solenoid while everything is still connected. If your starter cranks, your solenoid is bad.
You could also remove the solenoid and with a VOM meter and 2 jumper wires, test the solenoid by connecting the VOM to the 2 large posts and a 12 volt positive and negative source to the 2 small posts or if only 1 small post, positive to it and ground to the frame of the solenoid checking for continuity but the other way is quicker and easier. Oh Yeah, if you use a wire, don't hold it there very long, it can get HOT
