Snapper Lawn Mower Troubles

I have a SR 1030 Snapper Riding mower, 10 HP, that will not start. I have checked the battery and charge is good. I am getting nothing from attempting to start/no fire, no current running to starter (electric start). I have checked everything I think it could be and would appreciate any help you might give me.

How did you test the battery?? With a load tester or only a volt meter??? Batteries can have a static charge & look OK with volts,, But when you put a load on them,, they can't deliver any current,,, Tell us how you tested it & we'll go from there... Roger

Assuming the battery is good, check for 12 volts on the solenoid trigger wire plugged onto the side of the solenoid while trying to start.

Used the battery to start another lawn mower.

Thanks for the reply
