John Deere GT 242 problem

I have a J D GT242 garden tractor. It won't start. I have replaced the engine coil and the small silver box (plate). It turns over but won't start. Any suggestions?

Thanks Tanya

Re: John Deere GT 242 problem

Tanya, if it turns over just a bit then likely you need to charge the battery. By the way welcome to the forum! Can I ask why you changed the coil and rectifier (silver plate thing)?

Current Machine JD 322
