Customer Question

LTX1046 Model 13WP91AT010. Started mower, ran nice. Added gas. I believe I used very old gas. Ran real crappy lower power. At finish mowing it dies. Won't turn over, hear clicking only. Battery light lights when key is turned; PTO/Blade light only on when I engage deck prior to start attempt. Park brake lites only if not pressing brake pedal. Drained entire gas tank; replaced fuel filter; added brand new gas. Changed to new battery; replaced 4 pole starter solenoid (clicks same as old one). Should I suspect seat safety switch? Are there fuses?

Can you turn the engine by hand?

If solenoid is clicking, it is not a safety switch or fuse.

Engine is hard to turn or the voltage to the solenoid is low. Do you have a voltmeter to test.
