SOURCE: Runs fine but battery is dead

it should charge the battery itself ,if you have rnn the engine even for a few seconds without abattery connected you will have burnt out the rectifier under the fly wheel, that will probabley be your main trouble

You have done the correct things. This is definetely a problem with the fuel supply. Here are some other things to check.

1. Loosen the gas cap to ensure you don't have a vacuum in the tank. If you have a vacuum in the tank, it can prevent fuel from flowing to the carb. This is an easy thing to check, typically the engine will run for longer than 3-4 seconds when first started, but when restarted I have seen short run times like this. There should be a vent hole on the gas cap to prevent this from happening. If this is the problem clean the vent hole or get a new cap.

2. I don't know if this engine has a fuel pump, but the troubleshooting process is the same. Take off the hose to the carb and make sure you have fuel flow to the carb (use gravity if it doesn't have a fuel pump, or crank the engine if it does). If you have fuel, then the problem is in the carb (probably a stuck needle in the bowl assembly). Disassemble the carb bowl and clean the needle and seat with carb cleaner.

3. If you are not getting fuel through the hose to the carb, then you have a bad fuel pump or a plugged line.

Poulan riding mower will run but when i egauge the blades the engine will die

Check you battery for water above top of plates. Also check that the battery is not flat by charging overnight with external charger on mains. Be very careful not to touch clamps on to any part of the machine frame as this can do great damage or start a fire. Some charging units on mower engines will not produce enough power to charge a very flat battery and drive the electric clutch which requires a considerable amount of power to stay engaged.

Lawn tractor stop running wont start

When you say won't start? Does it turn over and not start or is there no click spin or anything.. Check your battery for its state of charge..if your charging system is faulty the mower will run on battery power only for a while but eventually will not have the power to run the engine..Have the battery charged and trynto start..if it dies it is the charging system..if it still does the same most likely is one of the safety switches that will not allow the engine to run went. is a long porcess to check them out..better to have a specialist look at it.. If is a spin but not that is another to put a separate question on here explaining exactly what is going on..will be watching fir your question. Good luck..

Worx 17'' Cordless Lawn Mower (Model WG787). I've got a barely three month old lawnmower and the battery is fully charged yet the blade only barely spins. Seems to be virtually no power despite the charged...

The batteries are defective in this unit. It should be returned to the dealer that you purchased it from and get exchanged, or your money back. Another way to test this mower is to charge the batteries fully, then test them. If they are truly fully charged, run the mower until it slows down, and test the batteries again. If they are still charged, (unlikely) then the problem is in the motor itself and still should be returned.

put a volt meter on the battery then start it and check the voltage before and after if it is not more running it's not working if it is not charging remove the top cover from the engine and see if mice chewed the wires

Battery drained after use

A lot of automotive parts stores will check a battery for free...
find your lowest amp rated (less than 10) and charge it over night.

Have battery load tested.

if good, place ammeter between battery and the rest of the tractor to check and see if load from running engine is draining or alternator isn't working.

or fast way to check an alternator on almost anything, start with battery, the pull off the negative (black) cable, if engine dies nothing is powering the engine but the battery (on an alternator driven electrical system, the battery is only used to start the engine)

Gx75 not charging

a lawn mower battery is only good for a couple years when keeping it charged and testing voltage doesn't tell you what is has for amps is the volt meter read more than the off voltage while running then it works they only have a 4-7 amp charging system

White smoke coming out of mower

It sounds as though you are losing power (electrical power); see if charging the battery fully allows it to run longer or if charging the battery helps.

Dropping cylinder at 10rpm and possible generator /stater problem

It seems the charging system of your bike is not working
Recharge the battery and thn fit it in the bike and start it and check the charging rate.
Remember with lights 'on' it drains power from the battery butthe charging system of theengine takes over i.e. if its working alright, with your explanation, its for sure the charging system is not functioning.
Chekc the altenator and the rectifier.
