Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello, and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. It is very likely that your fuse is actually blown. If you can get the model numbers from under your seat, I can pull up a diagram, to show the location of your fuse.
Is your solenoid at the front or rear of your mower?
I am with you now. Thanks for waiting.
Your fuse is located at the rear of your mower, behind your battery.
Remove your battery and your battery holder, then look through the opening, toward the rear of your mower.
Check for a small red wire that attaches to either your battery, or your solenoid. This small red wire should have your fuse in-line.
I tried to locate a wiring diagram for your mower, but I was unsuccessful. The small red wire usually has an in-line fuse. Check for a red wire coming from your ignition switch wiring connector. Let's see if your fuse is on this end of your red wire. This is the wire that powers your ignition switch.
Let's hope not.
Take your time. I will be here.
You are very welcome...
Was it behind your fuel tank?
Absolutely helpful. Thanks!
I will be away from my computer, but I will have my mobile phone available to correspond to you. It works the same.
Very good! Do you have a multimeter, or a 12 volt test light to test voltage to your pto clutch.
We need to determine if our problem is caused by your pto switch, pto clutch, loose connection, etc.
Hopefully it is not your pto clutch. You can wire your clutch directly from your battery, to check it.
Your clutch should have a negative and a positive wire in the connector, that attaches to it. You can run a jumper wire from your battery, to the positive wire that goes to your clutch. If your clutch is ok, you should hear a click. If you do not hear a click try jumping both wires. You can run a jumper wire from your frame to the negative wire on your clutch.
If your clutch is ok, sometimes the problem can be either lose of ground, or lose of voltage. Without a testing tool, you will have to do it this way.
Process of elimination.
That shouldn't prevent it from at least clicking. Tighten your bolt, then try it again.
It could be.
