How can I test to see if a solenoid is working on my lawn tractor model 917.270721. 917,270721


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when the lawnmower doesn't start.
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Craftsman tractor model number 917.270721..

Make sure you have cleaned the cables off with a wire brush.   Even if they look clean.

I see you are looking on how to test the soenoid.   I will be glad to help with that.

1.  If the starter does not spin when your turn the ignition key.  It is the time to check the solenoid.

2.  The solenoid is usually a small black box directly connected to the battery by the red (positive) wire.

3.  You will find 2 large posts on the solenoid.  Take a look at the post where the red wire connect too and a wire on the other post.   The two posts will be directly in line.

4.  Bridge the gap between the two post with your insulated screwdriver.  If the starter spins when you make contact, the solenoid is bad:  Now if the starter does not spin then the starter is bad.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter and I hope we can help you with your future questions and repairs.  Thank you for choosing Sears and using our
