Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
Can you tell me where the click is coming from?
Can you turn the engine over by hand? What engine is on this machine?
From what you are describing it sounds like the solenoid is the problem. Check to make sure that the solenoid is grounded good to the frame and that the negative battery cable is grounded good to the frame where it attaches. Since you have a new solenoid already it has to be a grounding problem that is causing your clicking when you try to start the machine.
Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you. If you need additional assistance feel free to ask.

If everything is grounded good then the only other thing that it could be is a bad solenoid, it is just clicking and not throwing power or voltage to the starter as it should. Have you tested to see if you are getting voltage from the solenoid to the starter? You might check that before replacing anything else. Can you turn the engine manually by hand?
No, if the fuse were bad you would not even get a click.
Can you provide the model and serial number from under the seat so that I can send you the correct ones for your machine?
There is no really good picture or diagram of the wiring on this machine but I am including what I have.
