While the battery may be putting out 13 may not be putting out enough amps to turn the engine over...try charging/replacing the battery.

Toro wheel horse 13-38xl lawn mower won,t start, makes buzzing sound when key is turned on,checked solenoid with screw driver but will not start motor, tuned pulley under motor and wheel on top of motor...

If you crossed the two battery terminals on the solenoid and the engine did not turn over, I would check the battery terminals first to see if they are tight. Then check the terminals at the solenoid to see if they are tight. If all of this is tight and you are sure you have 12 volts at the solenoid, then your starter is bad.

I need to find out what the voltage output and the miliamp output is on a toro z4220 mower my battery keeps going dead i have replaced it once already Thank yoy

You should have around 13.1 volts at the battery as the engine runs. If its 12 volts or lower - check or replace the voltage regulator. To check the regulator, stop engine, remove regulator plug, get a ohm meter and put the black lead to any ground,and touch the red lead to all the terminals one by one on the voltage regulator - you should get 3 readings - one lower than the other. If you dont get any readings - the regulator is definitely bad

Ridding mower not charging battery

Get a v12-Volt test meter and check your battery for 12+ volts not running. Then start the engine (you can jump with auto) and check voltage to see if it is higher 13-14-Volts.

The battery's available tend to be poor quality and is not unusual to have a new one fail. (new being 8 months or less)

Any further questions feel free to ask.

Test the battery with a volt/ohmn meter to ensure it reads at least 12-14 volts. Check all the safety switches located underneath the seat & the mower deck engage handle is disengaged. Check all battery wire connections are soldi, not corroded. Check wiring on starter solenoid from battery & to key switch.

Tractor wont start unless I jump it

How old is the battery? When you get it started put a digital volt meter across the battery terminals and with the throttle about 1/2 open check the voltage. If should be over 13 volts DC if your charging system is working ok. If it is over 13 volts your battery has probably just given up. Lawn mower batteries are only good for 2-3 years. A trickle charger can extend the life if used.

I hope this helps.

I had the same problem
1) find your voltage regulator 3 wire- the one at both end
should be your ac voltage around 20 volts the mildell one will be your 13 volts DC go to the batterie or starter with your engine running, if no voltage there check the rotor with a ohmeter the wire at both end for open circuit or ground circuit with the motor off
p.s. the voltage regulator has to be ground

Toro mower won't start. No sound when I turn key.

definately connection some where i would use a volt meter and make sure where power is and make sure it is getting too where you need it, if its getting too the soliniod or not then too the starter.
