    No, there is no 'clicking' noise when I turn the key. Last year I could not get the mower to start at the start of the grass cutting season but I did hear a 'click' when I turned the key. The mower eventually started and I had no problems with starting the mower for the rest of the season. I am stuck, can you help? Mal.

Lawn tractor wont start

How do you know the battery is fully charged? Simply hooking a battery up to a charger does not ensure that the battery is being charged. The symptoms you mention are indicative of a dead battery.

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.

Check and make sure your battery is fully charged, if is is ok then you need to do the following.
Check/Replace your starter solinoid.
Normally they will be the problem when you hear just a click.

It depends on the model but most riders have the following;
1. Seat switch
2. Brake pedal switch
3. PTO switch
4. Neutral switch (if its a shift model)

All need to be closed in order to start engine.
