If your riding lawn mower engine clicks when you turn the key but won`t turn over, there`s a pretty good chance your mower could have a bad starter solenoid. Other problems, though not as frequent, include a bad starter motor, a wiring failure, a weak battery or a locked-up engine.
Why is my lawn mower turning over but not starting? The most likely reason is bad gas. Gas that sits for many months during the off-season will eventually break down, gumming up the fuel line and carburetor in the engine and preventing it from starting.
Dirty Filters and Spark Plug
If you suspect a dirty air filter, try removing it and then starting the engine. Clean or replace the filter if the engine turns over. The spark arrestor, located behind the muffler, may also be clogged. If you`re sure the air filters are clear, the spark plug may not be firing.
Can you jump-start a car with a bad starter? Most of the time, NO, you can`t jumpstart a car with a bad starter unless you repair it. When the battery is dead, jumper wires or boosters are employed. You use a second battery to provide the necessary electricity to start the car.
A starter malfunction can have different causes: Electrical connections faulty. Solenoid switch (engaging relay) stiff or faulty. Electric motor damaged electrically.
When the starter motor solenoid engages, you should hear a clicking sound. If you hear a clicking sound but the starter motor isn`t moving, the solenoid could be engaging but not receiving enough battery power. If there`s no sound, the starter solenoid is likely malfunctioning or you might have a dead car battery.
If the engine starter motor turns over, the starter solenoid needs to be replaced. If the engine starter motor does not turn over once a jumper wire is connected to the two large lugs on the starter solenoid, replace the engine starter motor.

Battery goes dead over night – Toro 42'' Zero Turn Lawn Mower Trailer Package Deal ()
First thing to do is find out if it’s the battery or the mower. Disconnect the battery and leave it overnight. If it’s dead in the morning, you need a new battery. If not, you either have a charging problem (not likely if the battery isn’t dead after using the mower) or you have a current drain.

My toro 6.5 hp push mower (2010), has no fire to the plug. I have not abused it. i have a small yard and it just gets normal use. Now it won’t fire. I first changed the fuel and cleaned the carb thinking it was that crappy ethanol again. but i grounded out the spark plug and cranked it…no spark. I think it has to do with the lever you pull back to start it . they have some stupid complicated safety contraption that rides along the fly wheel when you pull back on the handle for starting and shutting off the engine. …it looks worn out already…like a mini brake pad. any ideas?…do i really have to replace this garbage every year or am i on the wrong path here?
Unhook your wire from the coil that goes to shut off mechanism, and see if you have spark then. the wire may be grounded out, or your coil might have took a ****
Starter seems to stay engaged once engine starts and mower will not move forward or backwards. try to engage blades and mower dies. small red wire on solenoid is suspect. key will not turn off engine.
Sounds like you have a Relay that is hanging up
