If you try to start your Snapper riding tractor and you only hear a click sound then there is probably a problem with the electrical system. Start by testing the starter switch with a multimeter to see if it is bad. Your ownerâ€™s manual should have the meter settings and what the reading should be. If it is not giving the correct reading then the starter switch would have to be replaced.
If it tests ok, then test the alternator and other electrical components and compare them to the readings from the manual. If a part does not read correctly then it is probably bad and needs to be replaced.
Depending on the model of your Snapper riding tractor, the model and serial number can be found behind the seat or under the hood.
NOTE: if you need a part for the small engine in your Snapper lawn tractor, there will be a separate model/serial number for the engine. Here are the small engines that are available in your Snapper tractor. Visit the page of the engine you have to find out where the model/serial number is located for your small engine model:
