How old is the Battery? Are all battery terminals clean and tight?
Charge the Battery for one hour and if the battery charger has a starting position , after one hour set the charger to starting postion and try starting the mower. Make sure the blades are not still engaged the mower will not start. Check key switch. I have had them go bad.
Check all safety devices to see if maybe one of them might not be making contact.


Good Luck,

John

Cord won't pull more than a few inches on new mower. Seems locked up. I've only ran it once.


Ensure the cable for the dead man switch is not kinked. Follow the cable from the handle to the engine. There are 2 bolts that mount the dead mans switch to the engine , remove bolts, remove dead mans switch from engine, let hang, try starting. If starting, clean dead man contacts and reinstall. You may have to remove recoil rope assembly and engine cove to get to dead mans switch.

My Craftsman 16 hp and 42 battery not charging is it normal?


get mower started and check the charging voltage at battery. it should be at least 13.5 at battery.check cables to battery and the inline charging fuse, its located somewhere in charging system.if its charging, but battery is still dead. it could be a bad battery. or alternator. . Examine the lawn mower electrical system by starting the lawn mower up, and then removing the battery. If the lawn mower turns off after the battery is disconnected, the lawn mower electrical system is the culprit.
its a good possibility that the battery is bad if it has been in use for 4-5 years.
check the fuses first. good-day !

Battery goes dead over night


First thing to do is find out if it's the battery or the mower. Disconnect the battery and leave it overnight. If it's dead in the morning, you need a new battery. If not, you either have a charging problem (not likely if the battery isn't dead after using the mower) or you have a current drain.

Batt dead jump start does not seem to charge


Sounds like a dead or shorted cell battery. Charging system is probably working but is showing overcharge since it is trying to charge a brick. Replace the battery and all should be well.

No power


I think you should check the charging system. You said you replaced the battery a few weeks ago. Even with the charging system not working, the battery might have enough power for a dozen or more start-ups; but using the lights may have drained what power was left. Get or borrow a battery charger and charge your battery. If mower then seems to be working fine, measure the voltage across the battery when the mower engine is running at normal speed (not idling). It should be 13.5 volts or more if the charging system is working. 12 volts or less means it's probably not working. Either test or replace the regulator/rectifier. Please rate me if you think this helped, thanks!

Touble starting my mower


try checking the starter it could have a dead spot in it. I am not a mechanic by any means but had this happen to me on a semi some years ago. sometimes it took someone tapping on it with a hammer while another was holding the key-that was a big truck so I wouldnt go hitting it real hard, or if its not too hard to get to maybe take it off and take it somewhere like a battery/starter specialty shop

Husqvarna Ride Lawn Mower does not want to start, which theres about 1/2-tank of gas. My Husqvarna Ride Lawn Mower is only a few years old which I have done some routine maintenace. The lawnmower has set...


I've discovered that if you leave key on battery will be drained to dead. Checking battery with meter shows +12v. When key is turned to start position nothing happens. When you connect meter to battery terminals and put key to start position the meter reads about .250 VDC. Even after taking battery to Advance Auto and have it checked it still does same thing. Eventually I jumped my mower with another battery that was being used in my scooter. Bingo! all worked well with jump. You would probably be able to jump with car battery with no problem.
