Replaced solenoid because it wouldn't start. Solenoid replaced and now when running it jumps, jerks so much gasoline sloshs out around cap. Could installation have caused this or was it reassembled wrong after installation?

Hello

From your Description it Sounds like a Bad Saet Safety Switch.
>>The Following is the Instruction File for Checking the Seat Safety Switch.
>>***PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR CHECKING THE SAFETY SWITCHES IS JUST THAT!!! FOR CHECKING ONLY.***
>>I NEVER Suggest a Mower be Operated with a Safety Device or Switch Disconnected or Bypassed. **Make Sure the Switch has a Good Connection. Now; On Some Model Mowers you can Simply Unplug the Safety Switch from the Harness. On Other Models you have to Place a Jumper Wire Between the Harness Terminals (on the 4 Post Switch Jumper from Same Color Wire to Same Color Wire). The Seat Safety is Showing No One is Seating in the Seat when the Clutch or Blades are Engaged.**
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

Respectfully

Mower will not start by key. I can jump across silinoid and mower will start right up no problem.Why is it not starting by the key?


H Albert:
If it starts when you jump across the solenoid, but not when you jump from the positive to the exciter terminal on the solenoid, then the solenoid needs to be replaced.
If it does not start from the exciter terminal short, then power is not getting from the switch to the exciter. Check wiring and switch functions.
Cheers

Rider 155 wont start unless you cross starter solenoid


On my Ariens, had the same issue, where, with a new battery, mower would not start, unless I jumped across the solenoid. Figured the switch was fine, because it would only start if turned on, and would power off when I turned it off. Had no idea there was a 20amp fuse in the mix. Thanks to Tim Whalen for his response from years ago. Replaced the fuse, dangling in a harness near the solenoid, and it started right up. So much better if it's something simple, even it was still a pain.

BATTERY HAS FULL CHARGE WHEN I TRY TO START IT IT DOES NOT TURN OVER NO CLICKING NOTHING CAN SOMEONE HELP ME. ARIENS 1740


Check to see if the solenoid is getting power. On the solenoid there are 3 wires. Two big, one from the battery, the other going to the starter. The 3rd wire is what activates the solenoid. Using a test light or volt meter. See if its getting power on the small wire when you turn the key. If no power, ignition switch, safety switches or fuses. If you are getting power replace the solenoid. If you have 4 wires. Test the two smaller ones.

Ariens 1534 zero turn mower will not start. It just clicks. It is not the battery as far as I can tell. It does the same click when I tried to jump it off.


Sounds like a defective solenoid. Locate the solenoid, using a heavy guage wire or one side of your jumper cables, or just opne of the clamps if you can open them far enough, jump cross the 2 main posts (the ones with the battery cable) and if it cranks like this, replace the solenoid
