Riding Lawn Mower Completely Dead

I have a 50'' Huskee Supreme Yard Tractor that will not even turn over. I was towing a small weed sprayer yesterday (i.e. with a small motor pump hooked to the mower's battery), and after I stopped and shut the mower off to clean out the sprayer, the mower would not even turn over. Nothing, completely dead; no lights; no hour meter. I thought maybe the sprayer drained the battery, so I trickle charged it overnight; but tonight it still was completely dead. I double-checked all the safety switches (i.e. the seat, brake, and transmission selector; they all seemed to engaging properly). It's almost like I blew a fuse or something shorted out; I don't know. I pulled the deck off to examine some of the wiring and found one of the wiring bundles running from the engine compartment area back to under the seat had come loose from along the frame and had been worn down to expose one of the wires; it was a green wire (assume it's a ground?). Any ideas?

Sounds like the battery gave out.
If the battery test good then you most likely have an inline fuse that is blown out.

What is the mixing ratio to 1 gal of water?


Their products are here, but they don't tell you the usage. It has to be on the label by law. The rear label usually lifts up to reveal a small book of three or four pages. If it isn't there, contact the company via the website.

http://www.spectracide.com/Products-and-Solutions/Lawn-Weed-Killers.aspx

The does have label details here
http://www.spectracide.com/Customer-Help/Labels-and-MSDS.aspx
For the Spectracide it is 1/2 oz to a gallon, but it depends on what type of grass you have. I will copy and paste the label details, but I doubt the format will stick, but it is all there.

Washer fluid not spraying out onto windows


when you push the button to spray the window "do you hear the sprayer pump motor"?

If no, your sprayer pump motor could have failed or come diconnected. now if you do hear the sprayer pump kick in then> check your lines "the small rubber hoses that lead to the actual sprayer nossels. make sure the small hoses are not damaged and leaking and not pinched or restricked.. in rare cases the sprayer pump could have failed and still make a sound like its working but not pump out any fluid.. also in some cases BUT RARE you could have a line or filter screen plugged inside the washer resivor.. Good Luck!

Pump is presurized but no spray


Most weed killers and fertilisers either crystalise or turn to gel when left unused. Pull sprayer wand to pieces and run hot water through the hose and wand, they especially clog up at the spray tip and at the on'off control.

Windshield washer sprayer 4 front.....no no pump sound


The reservoir does not need replacement.
First check for burnt fuse.
Next check if the washer motor terminals are securely connected.
If you want to test the motor connect it to the battery and see if it works. If the motor is fine then this is a wiring fault.
The motor may also be clogged with things like small bits of paper etc.

50'' Huskee lawn tractor only turns in one direction


the brand huskee is now manufactured by MTD
Parts are available from tractor supply company at www.tractorsupply.com
there are pages of not very encouraging reviews about the huskee mower or about the tractor supply company but you can contact them to see what you can get
as for the problem , if it is a zero turn unit it may be a clutch arrangement needs adjustment
If you do not get any help from that company, you could ring around the mower repairs shops to get an idea as what could be wrong as the principle of operation will be the same .
also there are sites that have pdf versions of the workshop manual for huskee

Fimco Sprayer , 25 gallon, 2.1 gpm, 12 Volts - Blowing fuses


Soiunds like you either have one of two things. Either the pump motor is bad or you have a wire that is shorted out. look for chaffed or bare wires or burnt spots on the sprayer and the machine towing it. one of the two is your issue. Hope this helps!
