SOURCE: nothing happens when you turn on the lawn mower

Check your seat, drive safety switches. Can you turn the engine with jumper cables attached to the starter? It won't start, but should turn over, one of your safety switches is not working.

Need a wiring diagram for a craftsman riding lawn mower model 247.28886?


You dont find alot of diagrams on the newer models now since they sell the whole harness.. Your best bet is to call Craftsman technical support and give them the model number. The writing diagram is NOT in the operators manual.

I had similar problem, I found the wiring harness where it plugs into the ignition switch get loose and breaks contact. I replaced the wiring harness it fixed the problem for a while. Then replaced the ignition switch and it helped for a short time. Now I just open the hood reach behind the ignition switch and wiggle the wires while turning the key until it starts. Been working for me for 8to 10 years.
