Tip & How-To about Garden

My Cub Cadet 1045 was dead

About 2 weeks ago I parked my Cub while I took a break. When I returned it was dead. No current to anything. After perusing many tips on You Tube about the solenoid, the battery, the PTO switch, and possibly the ignition module I set out to "fix it" myself. I replaced the battery . . . no help. I replaced the PTO. . . no help. I removed the ignition module and was in the process of ordering a replacement when I ran across a small post on Amazon. The gentleman professed "no mechanical knowledge whatsoever" but knew when something was receiving no current. He found a fuse and replaced it. I followed his instructions and had no problem locating my "fuse". Just to the side of the battery and under a cloud of dust I found a yellow 20 amp fuse. After a quick trip to True Value I was "up and running". Sometimes the simplest solution is the best and "only" solution.

In that case you need to check this

  • Make sure the refrigerator is plugged in securely
  • Check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker
  • Test the power outlet for current
  • Inspect the electrical cord for damage
  • Eliminate use of an extension cord, if any is being used
  • Check the outlet voltage
Good luck !!!
