Craftsman Riding Mower Won't Start with New Ignition Switch

I have replaced the battery, solenoid, and ignition switch. With the key on, the mower button will click and activate so I know I have power. The new battery is fully charged. I have located, and verified that the safety switches are making contact and continuity. I can make the tractor run by jumping across the solenoid and kill the engine by turning off the key. But it will not start with the key.

You can go on the Sears Craftsman website. They have online services and someone familiar with the equipment can help you troubleshoot.

How about the spark plugs?

You could have a bad ignition switch. I just went thru this with my car.. They put in a new one, and it was defective.

If you can run it that way then it's probably the ignition/starter.
