The magneto has nothing to do with the charging of the battery, it is for ignition only.
There is an alternator located under the flywheel, it is round with several small sized coils attached to it and a wiring harness with 2 wires which come out from under the flywheel and plug into the tractor's electrical system. Your engine may or may not have a voltage regulator but since you didn't mention your engine, I don't know what engine you have thus I can't say for sure.
If you pull the flywheel to look at it, also check the magnets inside the flywheel to see if any of them have come loose, 1 loose magnet out of place will cause the alternator to not function properly.

My lawn tractor died and now is readind dead but the battery is new


Sounds like your charging system is burnt out or your battery cables wheren't tight enough when you reinstalled your new battery and as soon as you started it the first time and you ran the battery down it didn't charge, take the cables back off and clean them greese them up and put them back on and tight them up and charge the battery up and you should be good to go

I have a 5000 w maxa ER generator that has a battery assist added ( PM 0525312.17 ) Question...Is the battery a regular 12v car battery, or maybe a lawn tractor battery?? Once the generator is started...


Replace battery with your choice of 12v products considering physical size, amp range and warranty. Lawn tractor batteries seem to have the least life/duty cycle. There are two methods of charging the battery used by Coleman. One is to charge the battery with charger/alternator coils installed under flywheel of the engine and second is to charge with built-in circuit in generator itself. Examine your wiring diagram to discover which you have. Simple test with volt meter will show if system is charging. Test voltage at battery with engine off, then start engine and retest looking for slightly higher voltage indicating charge. The charging system is like a trickle charger and not like your auto with initially high amp charge then taper to minimum. If your run your generator for long periods of time and you feel that the battery is being overcharged, then rig a switch to stop charging after one hour or longer. Good holiday

The electric clutch needs full power in the battery to stay engaged. I would recommend you check your charging system before replacing the battery. Put a digital volt meter across the + and - terminals of the battery and while running at about 1/2 throttle you should be over 13 volts DC. Probably around 13.5 or so. If not you have a charging problem. Lawn mower batteries I have seen seem to last only 2-3 years. I would also recommend a trickle charger for extended periods of non use. Don't forget the Stabil also.

Hope this helps.

Craftsman LT2000 tractor seems to drain batteries over a 3 t 4 month period. Works fine then it just dies after 3 or 4 months and battery is shot?


Check your charging system! The alternator may be bad. If you can't get it repaired, just put a trickle charger on the battery the night before use. That is not a fix but will get you by...Lee

New Battery + Possible Parasitic Drain + Weird Problems


Many new batteries will come with bad cells from the factory. If you just purchased this, I would definately try returning it asap. As soon as you get the new one, immediately hook it up to the charger to see if you have the same results. I have heard of others who have gone through two bad (new) batteries before getting a good one.

I would start with a new voltage regulator which is located under the battery tray.

Your battery is junk. Replace it.
Lead/acid batteries lose about 1% of their charge per day, so in 90 days of non-charging they are basically discharged. This is a bad thing. When winter comes, put a smart trickle charger on it, or at least once a month put a non-smart trickle charger on it for a couple hours or an afternoon so you keep it charged up.
I love/hate batteries.

Ooops I charged my 12v lawn tractor battery with 6v...is there anyway to revive


This should not have caused a problem. Recharging on a trickle charger won't hurt, however, I suspect you could have a dead cell, in which case, it will not hold a charge no matter what. I would be looking into buying a new battery.
Hope this helps!
