    have a BOP q36 that acted like the battery was going down, finley it would NOT do anythign with the key, so we would jump it. nothing. replaced all the switches. charged battery. and silonid, still nothing at the key switch. it was replaced too. can jump between hot side and starter fires right up.

    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.
