Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! I don't know it all, but maybe together we can get you a satisfactory answer!
Mower has arm switches, and seat and brake switches, all will stop starter function. Check each switch for sticking, arm switches on zero turn are the usual problem.
Look at the switches , to be sure they are moving, if thy are stuck and do not spring back, need to be rplaced or freed up. Or use a volt/ohm meter to check for continuity.
So solenoid does not click closed? If it has power and ground, it should close.?? And this is new solenoid! Is four wire solenid?
If you jump the wires to solenoid, direct from battery can you close the solenoid?
Ok, are you getting 12 volts to the solenoid to close it with keyswitch?
you said blue and green light up when key was turned to start?
Where is green and blue wires?
schematic for start.
Green and blue should close the solenoid if they have 12 volts!
If they had voltage before, why don't they now? Did you see the starting diagram I sent?
Only fuse is between the starter solenoid and the keyswitch.
I don't understand why solenoid does no close if it has voltage.? Reading the past responses. Does the starter turn the engine if solenoid is jumped? You said no start, I assumed engine was cranking, but not starting.??
Does your mower have the electric brake actuator?
If you look at the schematic, the blue and green wire go to the brake actuator, 8 and 11 terminals.
O< see the actuator, and trace each of the safety switches from switch to actuator.
Actuator is the brain of the safety circuits.
I Don't see a way to bypass. I would check each circuit up to the actuator.
Not one of Toro's best ideas, usually brakes can't be released.
