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

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.
