SOURCE: the mower is not charging the battery

Have someone with an amp. meter check across the battery terminals with the engine revved to max speed. It should read 13.5 or more volts.If it is reading that much or more then you should suspect a bad battery. If you had a bad charging coil you would not much on the amp. meter. donnyb60

SOURCE: lawn mower will not hold charge with new battery

Check your battery water level if it's not a sealed battery. Some small batteries require you to fill them with both acid and water, some with water only when new.

If that is not a issue then you are most likely running on your battery alone. You need to check your charging system. Check your battery voltage when the unit has not run for at least an half an hour. Then check it when it's running. The voltage should be higher. It should be 12.5 to 14vac. Lower means your alternator is not working or a fuse is blown in your charging system. Higher means your voltage regulator went bad and the higher voltage will cook your battery in time. The voltage regulator is usually in the alternator and can not be changed without replacing the alternator. Check your parts diagram. If it lists a voltage regulator then you are in luck.

Yardworks Battery operated lawn mower flipped over, now won't start. Battery has all green lights.


Some mowers will not start if there is insufficient oil in the crankcase. After the flip, did the machine lose oil? Also, this can flood the mower and possibly cover the plug with oil. Remove the plug, check the fuel and oil. Chech to see if any wire connectors came undone.

Where is the rectifier located on an unidentified mower/tractor?


It the machine has a rectifier it is built into the voltage regulator on the engine. It is considered a regulator/rectifier which both changes the AC voltage from the stator or alternator into DC voltage and then regulates the charge going back to the battery.

Yardworks 270-1241 battery full charge, sound like fan runs no motor, blade goes around, help


sounds like your starter pawl is stripped. remove your starter and inspect the pawl (gear). also check your flywheel teeth for chipping. this is usually a replacement part. If your flywheel is good just change the pawl on the starter itself

Battery losing charge


Sounds like you have defective diode rectifier. this little box when working properly allows your voltage to only go 1 way to charge the battery. if you have used a vehicle to boost the tractor you have damaged the rectifier. because a vehicle running puts out 14.8 volts lawn equipment is 12 volts only you can boost using a vehicle only if it is NOT running

Battery keeps dying, where is the alternator located?


Before you assume it's the alternator, note that when batteries get old, they won't hold a charge, so you might want to take the battery to a battery shop - most will test it for free.
To answer your question, the alternator is built into the engine, not a separate unit like you see on a car. Also involved is a rectifier/regulator unit that is mounted on the motor. If you have a voltmeter, measure the voltage across the battery when the engine is running at normal speed. If you get 13.5 to 14 volts, your alternator and rectifier are good. If you get only 12 volts, the alternator or rectifier are at fault.
