There is also a fuse block that has 3 fuses the center fuse has wire coming out top but no wire on bottom should ther be a jumper wire from hot wir on first fuse the third fuse has two yellow wire going in bottom and one yellow coming out top. The red wire on first fuse is hot. yellow wirs are not. Ialso crossed the solild and starter worked but tractor would not start.

When you turn the key to the on or run position do you hear any clicks at the carburetor or any kind of noises when you try to start the machine?

Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 1 year ago.

Can you provide the serial number from your machine so that I can better assist you?

I am trying to look at a wiring schematic but there are several different options depending on serial number.

I would assume that you have checked all the fuses to make sure that they are good.

Thank you for the serial number.

It looks as if your machine should have three fuses all connected to the wiring, so your initial question about the fuse only having one wire going to it is most likely the issue. If the machine was working okay prior then I would be looking for a loose wire in the area of the fuse block. Because of where the fuse block is located the most likely issue is that the wire broke off or come loose, it is not likely that it would have been pulled away.
