Question about John Deere 420,1020,2010,2020,2510,2520 Tractor Float
It does turn over and when I jump the switch, it will start.....I put a new switch on and no deal....could it be the seat safety switch?

Forget the safety switches for now.The first thing I would check would be the fuse. It will be located on the battery side of the solenoid. Follow your positive battery cable to the solenoid. There will be a small red wire coming off of that post with an inline fuse. If the fuse is good, check your solenoid. There are two wires plugged into spade terminals at the bottom of the solenoid. Unplug the one that is insulated, the other one is a ground. Hook a test light from that wire to ground. When you turn the key to start (with the brake pedal held down), it should light. If it lights, your solenoid is bad. If not, then you can start looking at switches. Probably will be one of the two. Hope this helps. Dwain

im sure the switch is bad, trying to jump is a good way to find out if the starter is bad but of course wont start cause of no spark, alot of these have electronic magnetos

First off, the safety switch is there for your safety, if you disable this feature and fall off of the tractor you could possibly be "mowed" over by it, but if you must....I assume that you know where the switch is, so there are two types of switches possible, you are either completing the ignition circuit by making the switch (seated) in which case you will need to pull the plug off and jumper the pins with a piece of wire and secure the wiring with a strap tie so it doesn't flop around (if no plug, simply cut and splice together the two wires) OR, more likely you are opening an ignition ground out circuit by making the switch in which case simply remove plug from switch and secure (or cut one wire and cap if switch is hard wired). So first pull plug off of switch and if that doesn't work you will need to jumper. Good luck

Does the engine turn over?. The pto switch you mentioned is this the POWER TAKE OFF switch? In other words starts the deck? If so, it must be off when starting the mower. Any internal combustion motor needs fuel and spark. If it cranks over check for a spark. If no spark determine if it has points or breakerless ignition. Also check magneto coil. If you have spark then, be sure fuel is getting to the carb. With today's gasoline, you can't let it sit in the tank long without adding an additive. If the PTO switch you described, is blowing a fuse, then it cold be a bad coil on the clutch. You can disconnect this coil to see if it stops blowing the fuse. you didn't mention if it is a Kohler or BS engine.
