Question about Toro 42'' Zero Turn Lawn Mower 22hp Kawa Consumer

2 Answers

I have a Toro Zero Turn mower that won't start. I have replaced the battery and have tried jumping it with a Auto but no favorable results. The engine will turn over untill the starter meets resistance from the engines compression and then the starter just clicks. If by chance it does start then it will start again the same day easy but if I leave it for a day or two it will not start. I replaced the starter mid summer.

Make sure "motion control levers" are completely out so brake is engaged. Is blade engage button depressed? Choke up?

The "motion control lever"s not being all the way out got me the first few times.

    One other thing. The "bypass levers" for manual pushing MUST be put back in the motor drive position before starting. It's a safety thing.

Just purchased a toro zero turn mower at garage sale. Ran very well first couple weeks. I was running it the other day, shut it down, jumped back on 10 mins later, mower does not start.


You'll need to check all the safety switches. Probably one in the seat, one for the mower engaged, one for clutch/parking brake engaged, possibly one for reverse gear selected, and possibly for position of the steering arms.

Toro timecutter won't turn over with key


Sounds like the solenoid is bad. Most solenoids connect positive + from the battery. One side will read 12 volts (with the black wire of a test meter or test light. (The side connected to the battery). Energize the solenoid (loud click) And with the key held, check the other side for voltage. No voltage, bad solenoid. Be careful when you buy a replacement. Many look the same but do different things.

The symptoms described may indicate a bad starter. First check all connections from the battery to ground and from the battery to starter You may want to have the starter tested at Advance Auto or Auto Zone. It will need to be removed from the mower, and I am not sure if Auto Zone, Advance Auto can test small mower starters. They test the starter under load, so if you remove the starter and hook it up to a battery, it will run probably, but it will not indicate whether the starter is good or bad. It needs to be tested under load. Good luck.....
