So, You say you replaced the solenoid ?

If so, Are your sure you put the wire harness feed wire back on the solenoid post with the battery cable and not the cable to the starter ?

I had a similar problem with mine. The starter was not grounding to the mower. When I went to tighten the starter, the bolt snapped off inside the motor. I then purchased the appropriate parts from J-thomas and now it is a pull start. Problem solved.
