TROUBLE SHOOTING GUIDE PROBLEM POSSIBLE CAUSE ( S ) CORRECTIVE ACTION Engine will not Battery installed incor - The battery must be installed with negative terminal attached to black ground wire . Negative terminal is crank rectly identified at the post by = NEG " , " N " or " - " . The positive terminal , identified by " POS " , " P " or " + " , must be attached to the big red wire which goes to the solenoid . Battery is dead or weak Check fluid level in battery . If fluid is low , fill to UPPER LEVEL line with water . Charge with taper charger until fully charged . Blown fuse or circuit Replace fuse with 7 - 1 / 2 amp . automotive type fuse . Fuses seldom fail without a reason . The problem breaker must be corrected . Check for loose connections in the fuse holder . Replace fuse holder if necessary . A dead short may be in the cranking or charging circuit where the insulation may have rubbed through and exposed the bare wire . Replace the wire or repair with electrician's tape if the wire strands have not been damaged . Note : Look for a wire pinched between body panels , burned by the exhaust pipe or muffler or rubbed against a moving part . Engine ground wire loose Engine should have a black ground wire running from engine to frame or mounting bolt . Safety switch button There are two switches in the starting circuit of your unit : the clutch pedal switch and the deck lift lever not depressed switch . Make certain the actuator is fully depressing the buttons on each switch .

A riding mower could overturn and cause serious injury . If operating a walk - behind mower on such a slope , it is extremely difficult to maintain your footing and you could slip , resulting in serious injury . Operate RIDING mowers up and down slopes , never across the face of slopes . Operate WALK - BEHIND mowers across the face of sloj _ , ' _ never up and down slopes .
