SOURCE: Sears lawn tractor tubeless tire replacement

Most local tire shops have or can get tires and tubes of the size you want/need and would install them as well. Without the proper tools, they can be a "bear" to change but if you insist upon doing it yourself, go to a GOOD lawnmower repair shop and have them order the sizes for you. It has been my experience though, the tire shops are cheaper

SOURCE: tractor keeps blowing a fuse

Check for a wire that has a bare spot on it rubbing the body of this mower. The vibration the engine makes shakes the wiring so it must have a bare spot somewhere under the seat or towards the engine

Why would a mdl 1035 john deere tractor keep blowing the starter fuse


There is a distinct possibility that this tractor was originally equipped with a 6 volt system. If it has been upgraded to a 12 volt starter, the ignition will need to have a resistor installed to bring it back to 6 volts.
I could be all wrong on this but it's worth checking.

Ok well I put in a brand new starter because my crank sensor keeps blowing and thinking I fixed the problem long behold I keep blowing my crank fuse when I try starting the truck I don't know wear to start


No, year make or model. But if you blow the crank fuse, it is between the starter and the ignition switch. Could be the switch, but most likely the wire. At the relay there are four pins. 30 is B+ all the time, 87 is to the starter. 85 and 86 can be switched. But one is B+ with the key in start position, the other goes to the ECM, this would be ground.. Since you're blowing the fuse, you need to find the short to ground. this would be the 85 and 86 wires.

95 ford mustang starter fuse keeps blowing. what should i do?


have you checked that the starter itself has not been grounded out (short in the wiring?)
The chances are this is what is causing your problem, start at the starter motor & follow the wires, check every single one, if you have a bare section that comes in contact with the body or anything else metal it will ground out that wire & cause the fuse to blow every single time even if you were to double the fuse resistance I.E. if the fuse is a 20 & you put in a 40 it will still blow - that last part is ill advice - never put a higher amperage fuse in a socket that was intended for a lower amperage fuse - it could cause a fire & serious injury, check all your wiring from the starter you have a short in the system somewhere it's just a pain in the a

Starter Fuse Keeps Blowing When I Try To Start My 2001 Camry


The starter has gone to ground. This is either a coincidence of age or the repair shop left something disconnected that has slapped around and grounded the starter or some of their other work has shifted around and done it. It could just be a coincidence. If it went to ground internally, it will need replacing. If something shifted and grounded it out, putting that something where it belongs and THEN replacing a fuse should fix it. Most shops reuse your starter on their new engine.

I keep blowing fuses when I try to start my 883. After tracing wires I can't find a dead short anywhere. All the lights and horn work fine. Only when I hit the start switch does it POP. I have checked...


Do not put a bigger fuse in the slot. If you do, you'll just burn up your wiring harness. A fuse is there to protect the wires. The fuse does this by blowing if the maximum current capacity of the WIRE it's protecting is exceeded. If it's blowing the fuse ONLY when you press the start button, it's in that circuit somewhere. I'd pull the starter relay and try it again. The relay is on the backside of the oil tank. You'll have to take the seat off to get to it. If it blows a fuse then, the problem has to be in the wire that comes from the start button going to the relay. If it does not blow the fuse, buy an new relay and install that. If it starts blowing the fuse again, you'll have to look at the schematic and find out where the wires go and trace them out. If you aren't getting any voltage at the blue wire, pull the relay and do a continuity check from the end of the wire where it plugs onto the starter and the frame. Pull the wire off the terminal on the starter and test it. If you have continuity, you have a short somewhere in that wire. Contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net and I'll send you a schematic. Remind me of what you need.

Good Look

Craftsman garden tractor Mod # 917.257740 blows main fuse.


Try checking the battery - make sure it is not under rated - over rated and be sure the starter it's self isn't drawing too much amperage.
the battery may need replacing and for a temp fix - put in a larger fuse - say 50 amp.
Thanks for choosing FIX Ya

30 amp fuse blows when trying to start engine


I always start by unplugging lights, kill wire to coil electric clutch if it has one ,sometime its the fuel shut off solenoid on the bottom of carb if it has one.
You can keep trying until you find the thing that does not blow a fuse or use an ohm meter to read from pos cable to ground of tractor unhook ground wire to battery you will read short to ground thru coil kill wire,starter solenoid small wire on spade,fuel shut off
solenoid ,electric clutch ,rectifier (charging system )and large wire to starter thats why I unplug them .
I have seen more shorts from lights , fuel shut off solenoid , charging system. not ing coil not safety switches not even bad starters.
good luck
