Kohler command pro 27. Can a bad stator cause ignition fuse to blow? Fuse blows if regulator is plugged in and you turn on ignition. Mower starts and runs fine if harness is unplugged from regulator

It could but I suspect the fault is in the regulator.

SOURCE: riding tractor blowing fuse

Put a volt meter on the battery when running. Shouldn't be higher than 14.5 or so. if so, it's overcharging. If you checked for shorts, did you run a continuity (ohm) test with a meter to see if the fuse is going to ground in this. Disconnect battery completely, ground cable first. With fuse removed check each direction of fuse wires. If getting an indication of going to ground, unplug ignition switch. still grounding? check starter solenoid with ohm meter for grounding. With wires disconnected, check between battery side of solenoid and body of solenoid where it mounts, or a good chassis ground. (you might check that the solenoid mount is grounding to the chassis first) Then between the starter side. And the small connector from the ignition switch. It should not be going to ground at all. The ignition switch sends the ignition to ground to stop the engine, and the safety switches go to ground to prevent starting when in improper position. One of these switches could be faulty as they also allow voltage for ignition through when in proper position. Check switches. If two blade, it should open or close when operated. If 4 blade, one side is open, the other is closed when operated. With ohm or continuity meter, connect to two blades on 4 blade switch and see if they connect. Push button and see if there's a change. Try the other two blades. You should see a change on both, but different. Again, two of the blades (connectors) will see each other, two will not when button pushed. Same on two blade switch. Either open (see each other) or closed when button depressed. If not, bad switch. Some of these riders came with a 30 amp fuse, by the way..... 4x4papa

SOURCE: fuse keeps blowing

In my experience...if it blows the fuse as soon as you turn the key, under the flywheel, there is a stator that recharges the battery when the engine is running, remove the flywheel, in most cases the magnets under it are broken and are in direct contact with the stator. If that is the case, both must be replaced

I have a 2008 harley davison heritage softail Blow the ignition fuse. Got it home the next day it ran fine Went to auto parts to git fuse Came back put one in works Started it up 12 or more times...

i9ndicates that you have dead short problem in a component in the ignition system
could be a bad ground causing excessive current ( arcing) when component is moved or wiring moved
maybe an auto bike auto electrician could pinpoint the problem area
possible a voltage control problem causing excessive current through the fuse , intermittently causing it to blow
Again a bad ground in regulator problem

Husqvarna 2246LS blows fuse 5 to 30 secounds after running, not if the regulator or stator is disconnected.

Since it only blows the fuses while running and it doesn't do it with the regulator and stator disconnected I would suspect the battery of having a shorted cell or two, some problem with the starter solenoid, or a pinched wire.
Here is copy of the OM with the circuit diagram in it.

Keeps blowing fuse

There are several things that can cause the fuse to blow. PTO stands for Power Take Off and most likely this will not be the problem unless it blows the fuse when it is turned on. What you are saying is the fuse is blowing by just turning on the switch will be a short which can be anything from a pinched wire, shorted diode, short in the stator. bad voltage regulator.etc

If you leave this mower out in the weather you might have a wet ignition system. Clean battery, dry out switch (contact cleaner), inner locks and ignition parts. Do not jump the fuse to try to start.

Why does lawn tractor blow fuse eveytime when attempting to start?

It could be one of a few things causing the fuse to blow. The ignition switch could be defective, It could be a bare wire grounding out somewhere, It could be the alternator or regulator / rectifier. If you don't know how to repair electronic problems you may want to hire a lawn and garden repair technician.

Can a bad voltage regulator cause the main 30 amp fuse to blow?

Usually a bad regulator will only cause problems with charging...
Sounds like you've got a short somewhere in the wiring...I'd start by checking the ignition switch wiring and the connections going into the fuse box.

I have a 2006 Cub Cadet RZT 42 Zero Turn Mower that keeps blowing the fuse. It would blow the fuse after long periods of use but it's gotten shorter and shorter between fuse blowing. Now it blows the fuse...

you have a wire that is grounding out, I would check the wire coming from the connector on the voltage regulator to the battery. This is the one in the middle position, look for a rub through and tape it up.

If you need further help, I’m available over the phone at

I have a snapper pro and blows pto fuse swap fuse out and wont start.

Either the PTO clutch itself, or the wiring to it, is shorted, causing the fuse to blow. The PTO clutch is mounted on the motor shaft, prevented from rotating by an anchor bolted to the chassis. A pair of wires lead away from it to a connector (probably after passing through the chassis). Disconnect that connector - may be one for each wire, or a double-contact connector. Look carefully at the wires -- they are in a vulnerable area, lots of vibration, and could chafe to wear away their insulation, grounding out to the chassis. That could be fixed with some tape. Get an ohmmeter with a low resistance scale (200 ohms or less is even better) and measure the resistance between the PTO clutch wires - should be about 1.5 to 2.5 ohms. If much less, the clutch is shorted and must be replaced. Good luck! If helpful, please rate my answer, thanks!

Bad regulator?

Fuse 2 is actually the fuse from the regulator to the battery (see schematic below) - so if it's blown then you are not charging the battery. Put the correct fuse in - if it blows again, you may have a shorted regulator. Unplug both connections to the regulator: With your test meter set to 'ohms' check in turn between each of the three yellow wires in the 3-pin connector to both the red & blacks in the 4 pin connector (the two reds are already connected to each other, as are the two blacks). Also check between the reds & the blacks. None of these should readings be 'short' (zero ohms). Inspect the wiring at the three-pin connector - if the bike's harness looks charred/burned that is a sign the regulator has shorted. There is possibility it could have taken the stator with it. Incidentally, the cable that plugs into the three pin connector - that should be a replacement auxiliarry harness: the original was deemed too small gauge for the job & was replaced with the auxiliary one as a recall. You should find that cable is stand-alone from the main bike harness and you can follow it back to the stator output connection. At both ends you should find the connectors of the original harness that is 'laced' into the complete harness. If you do not find that auxiliary harness, you need to get it. You should be able to get it at no charge from Triumph if the records on your VIN show it was never supplied.
