Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
When does this fuse blow? Immediately upon turning the ignition switch to on/run position? Only after attempting to crank the engine?
This is an indication that you have a direct short somewhere in the wiring system that is pulling way to much amperage instantly. It could be a wire grounded out or pinched.
It was doing this same thing prior to installing a new starter?
My suggestion is to trace all the wiring and make certain that there are no bare spots or pinched wires in the system. It could even be that two or more wires have melted together which would cause it to do this as well.
Most likely there was nothing wrong with your old starter. It is going to be a tedious task but I suggest checking the wiring. I believe that you will find either wiring that is pinched, shorted out to the frame or wiring that is melted together that is causing this issue.
It only blows the fuse after you turn the ignition key on right?
Let me check and see if I have or can find one for you. Kubota doesn't do a very good job with their schematics but I will see what I have or can find.
Give me a moment.
If the fuse blows as soon as you plug it in then you have a direct short in the wiring. I do not have a wiring schematic for that machine. I even searched the internet for a wiring schematic on that model and can't find anything that will help you. The best solution that I can offer is just to do a really good visual inspection of the entire wiring harness.
If you want to do that and then continue our conversation you can. All you need to do is come back here and we can continue anytime that you are ready.
Have a great evening, I look forward to talking again.
I will be waiting to hear back from you. Until then have a great evening.
