turn the key nada not a thing. tested for power thinking it might be the ignition switch - no power when key is turned so I thought it was the ignition switch. Brought power directly to starter,plenty of sparks but nothing else. Bad starter right?

I would check the safty switches. Had a guy ask me to look at his lawn tractor and I found that the nuteral safety switch was out of adjustment. :D

With a lot of sparks at the post when you connect the jumper cables I'd say you have a dead short in the starter so "YUP" would be the answer. Bad starter.

What kind of Engine? Briggs? Briggs brushes in the end cap burn out, you can get the end cap with the brushes from Briggs dealers.

Ordered new starter to arrive tomorrow, since the first post have been trying to start tractor a couple of times a day, basically every time time I walk by it. Dead not a sound, this AM did the same thing and it started right up a couple of times. What gives ????????????

Did you take the starter apart? On Onans, There's SO much junk & 'stuff' flyin' where the starter is & it's a pain in the butt to get out, the brushes seize up from all the 'stuff' in there. IF the brushes can't touch the armature, nada. Sometimes... the brush springs manage to get it close enough for contact (temporary/intermittent starting). There's always the issue of getting the 'FULL' 12V to the starter too. Al Eden's kit or relay to the starter.... JP

I would say a bad Solenoid. Or dirty/loose connections to Solenoid. Eddy go to http://www.kohlerplus.com/login.asp click on enter as guest click on Magnum click on M20 At bottom of page Service manuals click on TP-2204-b and down load the service manual PDF. It has a trouble shooting section section 4 and Electrical section 8 that describes how to test solenoid and starter.
