7016H - won't start with key switch. Fixes?

Recommended Posts

Looking at a 7016H. needs carb rebuilt, but does run, so I can check it out. Owner says that it won't start with the key switch, but it will if you jump the starter to the solenoid. He says he has replaced the starter & points. It has the original Briggs 16 HP engine. I know that it can be difficult to get parts for this. Can anyone shed any light on what this starting problem might be, and what to do,[and how $$] to fix? Thanks for any help.

Could be as simple as a bad circuit breaker between the ampmeter and solenoid. Or bad ignition switch, dirty connections between switch, voltage regulator, ampmeter and solenoid, bad safety interlocks, dirty connection between battery and solenoid. It could also be a bad solenoid. Parts are not hard to come by. You can get them at any simplicity dealer or from SimpleTractors site sponsors like Sandylake Implements or used from ebay. Early

Kevin, The problem may be as simple as a fuse, broken wire, loose or dirty wire terminal connection. Check the safety switches. There should be one for neutral start and one for the pto. The ignition switch could be bad, also. A 12 volt, probe type tester is invaluable for solving these type of problems. Good Luck, Jim

There are sometimes three safety switches, one on the hydro lever one on mid pto and opposite the pto is a third one for the front power takeoff, mine had the safety but no front pto so they must have added it at the factory.the last two are inside the frame just in front of the BGB. A simple jumper with two spade terminals will bypass it.

I have a 7016H with the same problem. It's hit or miss whether it will start with the key, but always starts off the solenoid. Looking it over, I found where the wiring harness was rubbing the S/G belt, I'm thinking that's one of my problems. Just haven't had the time to look at it yet.

Hi, I agree with all of the above, but one of the most common problems we have seen with this family of tractors, it the terminal on the wire to the circuit breaker. When we see one of the 7000 710 etc dead or intermittent the first thing we look at is the plug on terminal at the circuit breaker. There is often a lot of grass behind the battery and it gets damp and this wire has voltage on it all of time. Electrolysis often completely eats away the brass in this terminal and the corrosion inside the rubber sleeve either allows for the open circuit or sometimes intermittent. Easy check. No guarantees.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul

      I assume it's a bosche, correct
