Question about Omega Rear Drive Wheel Snapper Mowers
I have a Snapper that will not start. The solenoid just clicks when you turn the ignition. I can take a jumper cable and connect the positive post to the starter and it starts fine. When you jump the 2 posts on the solenoid, nothing happens. I have replaced the solenoid and it doesn't help. I have disconnected and/or bypassed the safety switches on the shifter and the deck to no avail. I have checked all of the ignition wires and cannot find anywhere that it is shorting out. The model number of the mower is 33128bde, although the engine on it is not the original engine. It was replaced with a B&S 11hp 2 years ago.
If it starts with the key when you jump it then it sounds like you have a bad or dirty connection in your battery cable or your battery is just too low. You didn't indicate where you were connecting your jumper cable, from the tractor battery or from another source. It could also be in your ground wire (but not if you only have to use one jumper cable). Remove the negative from you battery. Remove terminal from starter, and clean and be sure terminal is tight on the wire. Remove + cable from battery and clean. Remove ground terminal from engine, clean that connection. Check that the starter is firmly bolted to the engine.
