Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your mower questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!
in the case vent free and clear of any debris?
well your 10 hours shy if the fluid change, how bad is the fluid burnt?
sounds like you have a fluid flow restriction and a possible pump failure, you have done everything you can do externally, so next would be to tear it apart and see if there is any obvious failures
have you checked the flow in the return line?
its not showing me the return or supply but you will figure that out pretty easy, I do have a picture of the cooler location though it would be C in the picture
for some reason im not able to pull up that information ill have to open this back up to the other techs for extra assistance
Let me see if I have this straight. How do you know it is over heating? Touching with hand is not a reliable reading, as anything over 160 degrees is hot to the touch, do you have a warning light or gage , that comes on? Does performance change? You say oil comes out the vent? Oil level not over full? Does it continue to leak, or will it stop?
Oil gets hot from worn parts, or a restriction in the system. Was this a gradual change, or all at once?
Solenoid looks to be the solenoid for hydraulic cylinder ,by the parts book. When running unit, could any of the hydraulic functions be partially engaged. loading the hydraulics and making heat?
Feel the hoses and see if they heat up. The hydraulic valve may be partially open and is dead heading on the hoses.
Follow the hoses front the front hookup, back to the control valve. What is the exact model for the tractor? Usually 7 digits. Simplicity manual may be available for it.
