When I turn my john deere sabre off at the key the engine shuts down, however ten seconds later the fuse blows. Also brand new safety switches are killing engine when released. Suggestions?


Somewhere, probably in the ignition switch circuit there is a short circuit - otherwise the fuse would not blow. You'll need to take a test meter to each circuit in turn to isolate the circuit and then find the short. Be logical and patient!

My lawnmower won,t start


Three things I know to check. 1. check for broken kill switch wire or loose connection on same wire. 2. check for loose or corroded wires on switch. 3.If this unit has a stator and mag polish the surfaces of both and check clearances.

Have a john deere sabre turn key won't start thought battery was dead charged battery still won't start jump start with car battery it will start then . try to engage reverse with blades running it...


Some mowers have a mowing reverse safety switch. That safety will kill the mower if you try to reverse with the deck engaged. Some mowers even have an override button that has to be held while backing up. As for the battery thing, no matter how much you charge a bad battery you will not get it to start a mower if it has a bad cell or two. I would use a multimeter to check battery voltage, but the end result would still be the same, replace the battery.

I hope this gets you going again.

The mower will start and die in a few seconds wont restart unless i release the kill handle and pull it down again i can here the switch click but think i need a new switch i ohmed it out test ok but that...


This sounds like a fuel flow problem and not ignition kill switch, especially based on your ohms test. Fuel filter (screen) gets gummed up inside the tank. For testing you can supply outside fuel to the carb inlet port.

I purchased a 550 series mower last year. It worked great. I used it a week ago and it worked great. Took it out today and it starts right up but won't run for morethan 5 seconds....starts right up...


Hi, remove the bowl off the bottom of the carby and clean it out. My best guess at this stage is that you have water in the bowl. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

Toro self-propelled mower will not start. I thik it is the kill switch. What can I do now? Can I bypass?


Yes you can just unhook the wire and see if you have spark then, only thing is if it is the kill switch then you will have to replace it or you won't be able to shut your mower off unless you choke it but that will eventually wash the oil from cylinder causing premature cylinder wear, hope this helps you

Lawn mower does not run.


Needs a new diaphragm. Its between the carb. and gas tank. It collapsed and doesn't allow enough gas to carb. to keep motor running.
