Ltr166 alarm sounds and won't start, why?

I have the grass box on, which has now stuck and I'm unable to release it. The engine cut out and an alarm sounded mid cut. The box is only about a third full.

It sounds to me like a very loose belt or very worn out belt and also an adjustment problem.

SOURCE: ride on lawnmower isnt starting.

You may have a bad starter - the solinoid is "clicking" but not engaging. Remove the starter and clean it up and connect it to 12 volts to check if can turn. If not then buy a new starter and replace it out.

SOURCE: Black&D'er CMM1200 24V is running very slow unable to chew grass

Sounds like a battery problem, you could have a defective cell which is causing a very low voltage to be sent to the motor which = slow spin.

Yes the charge indicator could be related.

You can take the battery apart and find out what type of cell it is and have it replaced...but personally I hate cordless lawn mowers for this exact reason so I would go but a manual push or a gas model.

SOURCE: Was cutting grass: mower chucked down and now

I had that problem, Then I realized the cutting blades were still engaged. Did you make sure the blades were disengaged, The mower was in neutral and the Brake was fully engaged? It won't start without the blades diengaged and the brake on. You must be sitting on the seat to activate the pressure switch also. I recommend cleaning the debris out from under the deck before you start although this will not stop the engine from running if the other interlock switches are all set right. Also recommend raising the deck to the highest position before you start. Please do not activate the ignition switch with hands under the deck. The blades may turn. Not to insult your intelligence but safety is always first. I have a freind who is a lawn care expert with many mowers and years of experience, missing parts of fingers.

Check your drive belt. If you removed the rear wheels, make sure you reinstalled the drive keys.

Husqvarna ct 135 mower,when attempting to engage cutters with lever beside steering wheel the alarm sounds and then the engine cuts out


Hi Janet,
its the warning button on the grass collector. If the button is not pressed in fully, the machine thinks that the grass collector is off, and therefore stops the engine. I had the same problem. If you take the grass collector off, you will see the button on the top left side of the back of the mower. It is covered by a strip of black plastic that slots over it.

To fix the problem my first solution was to tape a washer onto the plastic strip, thereby ensuring that the button is pressed fully in when the grass collector is on. When I got tired of the washer continually falling out, I used a screw to jam the button in. You should be aware though, that with the second method you will be able to engage the cutters with the grass box removed. Potentially a small child (with long arms) could put his/her arm down the shute and chop fingers off etc. I have no kids, and thereby feel safe.
