John Deere 210 Starter Issue

Hi All,

I was driving around my yard yesterday sweeping up grass clippings and had to stop to pick up some downspouts. When I went to start my 210 back up, it just gave me one click and then nothing. I had been thinking that it was a solenoid issue, but when I jumped the posts on the solenoid I continued to get clicking and some sparks, but no cranking in the engine.

Does that mean that my starter is bad? If so, does anyone have any good resources for the replacement process? I always like to look and pictures or videos before diving into a project!

Thanks in advance!

Re: John Deere 210 Starter Issue

Clean up your battery connections first, check your battery Voltage, check the cables for corrosion, as well as the connections to all the components that feed the starter. after you know they are all good and clean you will know if it's the starter.

Re: John Deere 210 Starter Issue

Thanks for the message. I should have included that in the original message. I've checked connections and voltage between the 2 battery terminals as well as between the positive post on the solenoid and the negative post on the battery. I'm consistently getting around 14 volts in both locations.

did you check the voltage coming to the starter from the solenoid?

I'm honestly not sure. How would I go about doing that?

Volt meter at the hot wire on the starter. turn the key and see if it's getting 12+ volts.

you can buy a rebuild kit for these starters cheap on amazon or ebay, easy to do, I've done 2 of them.

And if it is getting 12 volts, it's the starter and if not it's the solenoid? You don't have a link to a rebuild kit that you've had success with do you?

Re: John Deere 210 Starter Issue

Take your multi meter and put the red wire on the small wire going to the solenoid, other end to ground. Turn the key. Do you get a reading then?

Re: John Deere 210 Starter Issue

I am assuming you have the transmission in neutral and pushing the safety switch. Roger
