SOURCE: HI, My name is Eddie.

To blow a 20 amp fuse, or any fuse for that matter, one, must have a major short circuit somewhere? So you need to find this first. It is always inadvisable to simply replace a fuse, especially with a larger size, before first finding what caused the fuse to blow.
You need to find out what is fed by that fuse, and trace back along that circuit and locate the short. It maybe, say, an abraded wire touching the chassis or earth? or it maybe a faulty component? It's impossible to tell without examining a unit.
You will need to obtain a service manual to be able to read the circuit diagram to trace it out, below is a link to hopefully obtain one
Once one has located the short, or faulty component replacement will usually fix things, or if a short to chassis, re-insulating the affected area will usually solve things.

one of the safety switches could be shorted out internally

Lx173 John Deere wont start. starter motor will not run to start eng you hear only solenoid engaging starter drive. have tested motor on bench. started blowing fuse since solenoid replaced.

You may have a bad key switch or you have a short in the wiring somewhere. Also check the Magneto's for proper gap. If they are loose they will stick to the flywheel and prevent motor from turning and could blow fuse.

Why is my John Deere L110 17 1/2 firing but not starting. It pops like a gun shot

this could be a engine timing problem this model should have a 17.5 hp kohler engine , now kohler's are now famous for having coil problems cus of overheating it and the other cause could be if you reciently shocked this engine hard (Heavy load) sometimes the flywheel pully (iron thing on top) comes loose or you shear the keyway on shaft anyways ck out my youtube video on easy way to change kohler coil for help doing this (all you need is 6 mm wrench , two hands and a playing card)

John deer L110 17 1/2 Kohler engine fires but doesn't start, it just pops like a gun shot

given the info available , it sounds like either a hole in the piston or a burnt/stuck valve. the popping sound could be a backfire, from improper detonation of fuel ,a simple compression test will tell if this is in fact the problem.

John Deere L110 what is the 20 amp fuse for?

Hi. That 20A fuse is basically the main fuse. But what is year model and is engine Kohler or Briggs & Stratton? It may depend on the above, but on an L110 the circuits that need to be protected are mainly the Charging Circuit, the Operator Presence Safety Circuits, and power for the Fuel Shut-off Solenoid which is under the carby fuel bowl. If the fuse blows the fuel shut-off solenoid will close and after a few seconds the engine will stop. But even if the engine could keep running the safety circuits would respond as designed and earth out the magneto and that would stop the engine. The engine has an AC "alternator" under the flywheel and a rectifier/regulator which changes the alternator's output current from AC to DC and then regulates it to suit the battery's needs. Depending on engine model this charging system may have up to 16A capability, so that is why the fuse is 20A.
Hope this helped
