Sears 725 walk behind mower

I have a 725 model 917.9994A electric start lawn mower. The battery has been charged for three days;the plug has been changed; the fuse is good;the air filter is new, but it will not start. It turns over slowly but consistently. Any ideas?

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.

SOURCE: I have an RZT50 Cub Cadet Mower that only starts with jump

it sounds like the starter motor is pulling to many amps for the battery to cope with. if its a 12v system it should not pull the battery down to less than 8.5 volts on cranking if it does the starter-motor is defective you can check this with a volt meeter across the battery terminals and see what it read as you crank the engine. hope this helps

Model 917.370440. Where are battery and fuse located?


On the back right as you walk behind. Follow the shielded wiring harness from the black box on the right side of the handle down to the mower deck. That wire plugs into the battery. Hope this helps.

Where can I find a troubleshhot guide for a lawn-boy cordless walk power mower model 10123


Batteries need to be kept warm and charged,on a regular basis,this is where a "Float Charger" comes in handy to monitor battery voltage while in storage ,I'd bet the ranch your battery is toast,but any auto parts store could LOAD test it for you ,Good luck !

Lawn mower batter charger blows circuit breaker


I'd try plugging it into another outlet first, then try turning off any other appliances that might be on that same circuit. If it continues to trip the breaker, I'd take it to the small engine shop.
hope this helps

If how you described you unit is true you do not have an electric mower you have a gas powered mower, you DO NOT have a battery!!!???

Toro walk behind mower battery will not stay charged overnight,can't find a short


If the battery won't stay charged it most likely needs to be replaced. Check out http://www.batteryinternational.com/electric-lawn-maintenance-batteries.html . They should have the battery you are looking for.
