Hi government32, seeing how you just installed a new battery I'll assume you cleaned all the connections. Not cranking at all sounds like 3 possibilities, Key switch, starter solenoid, or starter. Lets check starter first. Using a jumper cable, jump from positive battery post to starter motor (you'll see the connection on the motor where cable is connected,thats where you hook jumper), if it cranks the starter motor is ok. If it doesn't thats the problem. If it does crank check the starter solenoid, using a jumper cable jump across from side to side (the 2 big terminals). If it cranks now the solenoid is bad or the electrical connections are dirty. There are also 1 or 2 small connections on solenoid from the key switch, make sure they are clean. If these 2 components check out the key switch is bad or the connections on it are dirty. (its usually not the switch).Hope this helps you.

It wouldn't start so I replaced the battery. With new battery it still won't start and there is not even a click....nothing. The starter turns though. Is it the wiring or a fuse perhaps?


There are a couple posibilities. One is the safety switches are not all positioned correctly or one has failed. The other is the starting solinoid is bad.

I have a Craftsman 17.5 HP B&S 42" lawn tractor that won't start. When I turn the key, the flywheel turns nearly one rev and then seems to stick. I turn off the key and manually turn the thing about 30...


Ift.ts very possible you key is stripped on the crank shaft. Raise the hood and pull the air shroud which will expose the fly wheel, Remove the large nut holding the fly wheel and check for the shesred key. If it is sheared install anew one even if it has aneck in it.
