craftsman mower help
I have a crafstman 46" riding mower that was starting fine the last time I used it. It threw the drive belt which it has been doing a lot lately. It was parked for a week where it died and sat through some heavy rain uncovered.
I got the drive belt back on ok and I am sure it is on correctly. When I tried to start it, it wouldn't turn over at all. I checked the battery and put a booster on it to see if that would help but still nothing. I checked and bypassed the seat switch and the brake switch, checked the fuse etc. I replaced the solenoid and the safety relay, obvious things that could keep it from starting. I get power to one side of the solenoid but it just won't engage. I think the last thing I can try is to replace the clutch safety switch. I am not sure how to tell if the clutch is actually engaged. Does anyone have any trouble shooting tips for me or any other advice for getting this thing started?
