 Agracat 2920 Tractor will not start

Argacat 2920 tractor. Normally starts first time, but now nothing. I turn the key and nothing happens. When I turn the key I do notice that the volt meter reads neg30 or all the way to the left. The rpm gauge jumos a little but then drops off. There is no noise. I tried to jump start the tractor thinking the battery was bad but that didn't help. I tried putting the hot jumper right on the starter but nothing. When I put a screw driver across the positve lead and the negative lead on the starter I got an arc but nothing. So My thinking is the starter might be going bad. Is there a way to check this or any other Ideas out there that might help.

Sounds like the starter solenoid is not making any contact. Sometimes a firm (but not excessive) tap may make the solenoid make a connection but is a long shot. I take it that you are not even getting a click or anything to indicate the starter is trying to work?

NO, no click, all I see is the gauges move and thats it. Do I tap the end or on the side?

I would say it is time to pull the starter and bench test it for function. If it appears to work properly on the bench, I would check to ensure the engine will turn over by hand by either attempting to turn it over via gently prying the flywheel or other means. Could be that something got wedged in between the starter and/or flywheel ring gear. If the engine does not turn over you have bigger problems but first lets concentrate on eliminating the starter which sounds like a very likely culprit.

The wafer switches Jinma used during AgraCat's brief lifetime (maybe still now, I don't know) were of dubious quality. I'd start there. Try to start the tractor IN NEUTRAL by shorting the solenoid wire against the starter cable. If that starts the tractor without the radical ammeter deflection, you can download my instructions for a "Switch Mod" at http://www.johnstractor.homestead.com/JinmaInfo2.html

If you end up needing a starter, solenoid look us up.We have them in stock.Jump the starter with a screwdriver from the hot post to the solenoid and see if it spins over, if not you have a starter problem, that by pass's the switch, clutch interlock ,ect. make sure the tractor is in neutral first.

I pulled the starter and battery, both checked out fine so back to the drawing board. I did try to short the starter but nothing happened when I did this, I will try different settings on the key switch today. I'll let you know what happen later. Thanks

When you say the starter and battery checked out fine......do you mean the starter bench tested properly and functioned? Not sure what you mean when you say you shorted the starter. Did you short the solenoid terminal to the starter post? Just want to be sure the starter and solenoid checked out. If this all functioned properly; sounds like you are on the right track with the start switch. Good luck.

OK, first off yes to your questions, and second, after reading the posts here I first tried to wiggle the wires below the switch. Wow, engine started fine, so I will be looking at the switch and wiring a little closer. Thanks
for the help, I'm just glad this one was an easy one.

Hi
I also am having the same trouble with my JINMA 284
I turn the key and nothing happens, but I can jump start it when I go across the starter lugs.
