Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you.
George, have you double checked, to make sure your battery cable are attached to your battery correctly? Just confirming.
Do you have time to do some troubleshooting?
Thanks! Before you and I get started, I would like to know what brand your engine is, and the horsepower.
Thanks for this information. Does your engine have a voltage regulator on it?
Ok. We can get started troubleshooting. Do you have extra fuses?
Very good! We will perform a process of elimination. First disconnect the wires that attaches to your fuel shut off solenoid, then check to see if your fuse blows, after you turn your switch on.
Thanks for checking. Next, disconnect your voltage regulator from your wiring harness, then try again.
The reason we are going this route, is because I do not have a wiring schematic for your mower. I would like to confirm something. Is your fuse blowing in on position, or in start position?
Ok. Disconnect the wiring connector for your headlights, also inspect the wiring for bare spots.
Your fuse didn't blow this time? Very good! This indicates that our problem is either in your headlights, or the wiring circuit to them.
You are very welcome! I apologize. I thought when you said "all fine", you meant that fuse did not blow.
