MTD 17.5HP Riding Lawn Mower Battery Issues

MTD 17.5HP I/C
Model: 13AF685G700
I believe engine is briggs and stratton

My problem: Turn the ignition key and nothing happens. When jumped off, starts right up and runs. Removed jumper cables, turned on ignition again nothing happens. So I order new battery.

New battery arrives, I install and optest, again nothing happens. I jump start the battery and the riding mower cranks and runs, lights come on, no problems until I turn it off. When I try to restart it nothing happnes: no solenoid clicking, nothing.

Do I have a problem with an alternator? Starter? any ideas will be helpful.
