Sorry about this problem but i would suggest that you flush oil and get new oil into it. Please do this and your problem would be solved.

I have a 2003 26 hp EFI Walker mower brand-new battery won't hold a charge was wondering if it's the magneto and where is it located and is it expensive to fix

This could be the switch. The switch is giving the impression that it's either in the on position or its a flat out short. .

This is not a difficult job. If you decide to take it to a shop, DON'T let them over charge u. The magneto and coil work together to provide spark only so, it's NOT anything to do with the magneto.

What I would do is test the switch, start there.. You can save yourself alot of money doing this yourself.

I want to disable the safety switch that shuts off the mower deck when I am mowing down a hill. How do I accomplish this task? I have a Model SLT 1554. I can't find a wiring schematic for this model...

Hi, it will be the switch on the seat activating as your body weight/position moves forward down hill. It is not a good idea to disable it, try moving the seat forward instead. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

Lost reverse on right transaxel

could possibly have a broken selector fork on the transaxle, if so the transaxle will have to be pulled right down to repair the broken parts.
