TO-30 quit running, puff of smoke from electrical? Won't turn over

Burried the tractor in the yard. Was using the Jeep to pull it out, about 20 min of work, then when almost there, in reverse, tractor quit, little puff of smoke at rear of engine, below battery that smelled electrical. Now won't even crank, but batter at 12 volts and can hear clicking. First thought is solenoid but that wouldn't stop engine from running, would it? I think I have a short somewhere. Didn't seem like something mechanical let loose, but was working it hard. What else could I check electrically? How can I test solenoid? What else could I look for? Thanks!

It is possible to have the solenoid go bad but not while the tractor is running as it is only used to engage the starter. It sounds like the wires to the starter is shorted out. I would run a hot wire to the solenoid from the battery to the solenoid and see if it will start. Just be sure everything is grounded. If the ground cable on the battery is ok you should not have a problem with running a hot wire to the solenoid. Just touch the hot wire to the starter and then release it when the starter engages. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a TO-35 Massey

The only thing left to check is the timing,and the fuel,make sure there is no contamination in the fuel ,and no water,try a cleaner,and a dryer for the fuel.It does sound more like the fuel.

My mtd yard machine (leaf blower) started billowing white smoke. I shut it off and now it won't start again.


First check the oil level. If its overfilled correct it. Then remove the spark plug and turn the engine over. Replace the spark plug.
Start the engine. Use a prime ( squirt carb cleaner into carb) if you need to. It may start smoking again. Thats OK as long as you know there is oil in it and you dont hear any strange noises. Let the unit run for about 5-10 minutes and see if the smoke clears up. Once it quits smoking stop it and check the oil.

Model 917.370410 won't start


Sounds to me like this model is a POS. I also have this same model, purchased last August have used only 5 or 6 times , has the same symptoms: hard pull, puff of smoke, won't run , etc. Even brought this to an authorized dealer to get it to run, but then it only ran a couple more times, dead again. Does anyone know of any recalls fro this lemon? I can appreciate everyone troubleshooting , but you shouldn't have to tear apart a 5 month old lawnmower which will only result in your warranty being voided.

The mower starts but the blade switch won't conect yth1542xp


Husqvarna uses an electronic clutch to engage the mower deck. When the clutch works itself out of adjustment it will quit working. Sometimes it will blow the 20 fuse and the tractor will continue to run, but the blade won't engage. When you then shut off the tractor it won't crank again until you replace the fuse. When you attempt to engage the blades again, the fuse will blow again.

Follow this link for a detailed description of the adjustment process:

I have a 21.5 HP 42in. deck mower that I just bought (used), having a little trouble with. Mower starts fine, and runs great... until it heats up, then it starts spitting and sputtering, blows out black...


The black smoke is too much fuel, it is flooding out. Carb issue, I would pull the float bowl and clean carb, the needle in carb is stuck open pumping too much gas in.

Smoking Craftsman Riding Mower


1st thing, check your dipstick up inside the cap part of it and make sure the O'ring is there and in good condition.
2nd, make certain when you put it back on that you get it on straight and firmly seated. They will only seat one way properly the other way creates a leak into the crankcase and causes oil consumption and smoking. You should be able to tell if it has been improperly installed by an excessive amount of oily dirt accumulated around the threaded area of the cap

Husqvarna yth1848xpt with a kawaskie 20 hp puffs black smoke


I had the same problem with my YTH1848XPT . Believe it or not it is simply a dirty air filter....you must remove the filter and blow it out with an air compressor...or better yet replace it. you can not clean it well enough without the force of the air compressor. Mine works great now.
