SOURCE: riding moweer wont charge the battery when mower

Hello davidturner:

>>From your Description it Sounds like the Stator/Charging Coils are Not Charging Correctly.
For Testing the Electrical (Charging) System on Mowers you can Use this Site Addy; http://faqs.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/faqs.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=3438&p_created=1101706364&p_sid=4fQ1f8Xi&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=3443&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9NTEmcF9wcm9kcz0mcF9jYXRzPTAmcF9wdj0mcF9jdj0mcF9wYWdlPTEmcF9zZWFyY2hfdGV4dD1Wb2x0YWdlIGFuZCBTdGF0b3IgQ2hlY2s*&p_li=&p_topview=1 and Use the Link for AC Volts/DC Amps Meter Setting Chart. This is for Briggs Engines and Works Well for Kohler and Other Engine OEMs.

Why poulan pro riding mower wont charge


First check your battery, make sure the cells are good and no bad cells. If that is good then the issue is under the flywheel. There is a coil under your flywheel that serves as a generator. You can just purchase a 2 am charger with a breaker, that will kick out when battery is charged and hook that up after each use. If you jump a unit or charge a unit with more than 2 amps, you can burn the generator coil out under the flywheel. Also check the magnet under the flywheel. I have seen them come out.

Battery not charging


Looks like the battery is wasted. I'd have it replace it. A new battery should keep charged for longer period of time.

Possible charging coil under the flywheel issue, or with the retifier, there is a tool called a negative shunt, this will quickly tell you if there is any charge to the battary from the engine

Mower will not start will make clicking noise. did start at for one minute


Your battery is dead. Replace it.
In the winter keep a smart trickle charger on the battery to prevent it from discharging. Lead/acid batteries lose 1% of their charge per day and are basically junk in 3 months. They have to be kept charged.
