Riding Mower Won't Start Without a Charge?

My riding mower will not start unless I charge the battery. Parts store says battery is good.

If the battery needs charging to start the mower normally this means that one solenoid inside the battery is bad or is going bad. If this is the case when the store tests the battery it can test fine on the battery tester. Considering the solenoid is going out in the battery and it takes a full charge to start a mower it is better to get a new battery or just keep charging the battery each time you want to use the mower until the battery finally dies and buy a new one.

Most likely your battery is in the final stages and does need to be replaced.
I feel sure the parts store did a fast check on your battery and they needed to do a slow check (takes longer of course) to find your problem.

Be sure to buy your battery at a store that has a good warranty on their batteries. I have usually found that Walmart carries most size batteries and their stock seems to be fresher than many other stores - even the parts stores.
Most of their batteries have a 2 year replacement - not a partial payment like most others.

I had this problem with my riding mower. The battery did not have enough cold cranking amps. I bought a new battery with more cold cranking amps and it worked great

The battery is still getting drained by something. Also check spark plugs, cables to the battery(make sure that it is not loose).

In the end, the battery does not seem to be strong enough to do the job. I feel a new one is near!
