Customer Question

My JD X340 will not start everytime I turn the key. I depress the parking brake all the way down and I just get a click click. After about 20 or 30 turns of the key the mower will crank. How can I solve this problem?

Always check your battery connections to make sure they are clean. Check the power at the solenoid when you get the click and see if there are 12 volts. If there is check the starter side of solenoid and see if there are 12 volts going to starter. If there is not most likely the solenoid is bad on the starter.
