How to Install a Starter on a John Deere Garden Tractor
- Raise the hood on your John Deere garden tractor.

- Disconnect the wire terminals that secure the ground wire and the positive wire to the backside of the starter with a wrench.
Additionally, why does my riding mower clicks when I try to start it? If the riding mower makes a heavy clicking or a rapid clattering sound when the key is turned to the start position, there is a problem with the battery or a part of the starting circuit. The clicking noise comes from a part called the starter solenoid. Low battery voltage - Battery needs charging or replacement.
Then, how do I know if my starter is bad on my lawn mower?
A riding lawn mower that has a bad starter can be difficult to diagnose. A bad starter can manifest itself in a cranking noise without engine turnover, a clicking when the ignition button is pressed, or a mower that simply does not respond to attempts to start.
What does a solenoid do on a riding lawn mower?
Most large Kohler engines on riding lawn mowers use an electric starting system. Part of that system is a starter solenoid. The cylindrical solenoid is a low-amperage relay that safely completes the high-amperage electrical connection between the battery and starter motor when the ignition key is turned.
