917272481 Craftsman Riding Mower won't start

I tried starting my mower turn the key and nothing happen so I checked the battery (good and charged) I then used a jumper cable from the battery to the starter and the engine started and ran just fine. I shut it down and tried again nothing. I wiggled the wires on the solenoid and it started once. Long and short I have replace the solenoid and the ignition switch still nothing. Any suggestions on what I should try next.

Might start by checking the fuse. It should be near the solenoid.

If wiggling the wires got it to work once I'd check the connections at the battery, solenoid and starter to make sure they are clean and making good contact. If that does not do it I'd check for a broken wire. It may not be visible since the conductor could be cut or broken inside the sheath/insulation.
